I've been a fan of Ann Taylor clothing for a long time (about 15 years) and I visit both the regular AT stores and the AT Loft stores. A pant type that I discovered this year that is new is the Julie and it's perfect for us gals that have a bit of a backside and hips - not just one or the other. I find a lot of pants that work for women with hips but not with a J-Lo style backside like mine. But, besides the Julie pant there are plenty of styles to fit all kinds of women's shapes.
I love that they have nice styles, not too trendy but stylish enough and that they are also conservative enough that I can wear the clothes for years. That also means that there is good quality without Nordstrom prices. Probably the only downfall I find is that being 5'8" and a natural size 10-12 they run out of my size more frequently than they used to since shorter women are carrying more weight nowadays. There always seems to be a glut of size 0-4 on the racks.
