Review - UK Glamorous Disco Pants

(Currently available in Noir, Black, Royal Blue, Pewter, Gold)

 I promised a while ago that i would do a proper review of the UK Glamorous Disco Pants that i bought during the summer. After seeing the American Apparel Disco Pants pretty much every where and on everyone, i knew that i wanted a pair. I asked for them for christmas last year but i don't think my parents were too happy about the idea of spending £70 on a pair of 'shiny trousers' so i didn't end up getting them. That did work out for the best as i ended up getting these instead for around £27! (along with a 10% off voucher and postage) 

When i saw these on the website my immediate reaction was that they looked pretty much exactly the same as the AA ones. They have the same shiny look, back pockets, are very high waisted and even have the thick side seams. I find that they are extremely comfy to wear and that the material is of a good quality, not too thick, not too thin.
 I can't really compare the quality or fit of them to the AA ones as i've never tried them on, but you'd expect that you'd get better quality for the much higher price. Although saying that i have heard that people have had bad experiences with the AA Disco Pant quality such as pockets falling off and holes being made in the fabric within the first few wears! 
I ordered my UK Glamorous disco pants in a size 10 and they did come out true to size for me although the website advises that you go up a size because of the tight fit. They are extremely flattering and i think they would look good on most body shape as they really suck you in! The only few down sides i have for them is that the colour is more charcoal than black, but this is also stated on the website and they now have a new 'noir' pair which are supposedly more black. Another is that they can only be hand washed but this can't be helped because of the properties of the material. 
Overall i would highly recommend the UK Glamorous disco pants to anyone who is interested in the look and style of the AA disco pants but does not want to pay the extortionate price. They are available in a few different colours and the website also has a lot of other affordable clothing. There are quite a few other places selling disco pants dupes at the moment so let me know if any of the others are any good!

  1. Hey!
    I am interested in buying the Glamorous Disco Pants but I read some bloggers bought them one size up but as for you, it fits you like a glove. I am a UK12, still cant decide what size I should be buying. Great review anyway! (:

    1. hey :)
      I personally would recommend going up a size because of the tight fit, I vary between a size 8 and 10 on my bottom half now and they still fit perfectly!
      thanks! xx

  2. Hey Sophie! I'm quite late commenting on this as I've just been searching for some reviews on these disco pants. I had ordered the Topshop Tall range ones as I'm 5ft 9" so length could be a problem, but after I had placed my order I was emailed to say they were out of stock! I was wondering how tall you are, and if they came up long or short on you as I want to make sure I get the right size. I'm usually an 8 in bottoms.

    Thank you!
