Women’s Dassy Boston Trousers

By Harriet Stone

 

Our Verdict

These trousers offer women in the trade a chance to feel comfortable professional and stylish. They are fully adjustable on almost every aspect making them easily adaptable for different body shapes.

Pro’s

  • Stretchy waist
  • Stretch Panels on hips
  • Adjustable leg length
  • Straight leg slim design.
  • Great Price
  • Phone Pocket

Con’s

  • No Holster pockets.
  • No Hammer Loop.
  • Not for plus size
  • Not for midgets

Being so tall and doing a male orientated job, I already ooze masculine energy, when actually I have no problem with looking and feeling more feminine at work. 

These trousers offer a great alternative to the abundance of wide leg scruffy outdated styles currently flooding the market. They are cut with a woman’s figure in mind. They are quite low rise on the waist, but the stretch fabric inserted in the hips allows for great movement. They also have elastic sewn in the waist as well as those little buttons on elastic (like toddlers have), in the back of waist band, so if you’ve sized up up for room in the butt, you can make the waist much smaller should you need to.

Another great plus, quite literally, is the extra hem you can unstitch for a couple more inches. As most of you know my legs come up-to my armpits, and more often than not I am disheartened by the lack of womenswear on the market that will fit me. I wear a 36l and these say 34 at their longest and they are long enough for me! If only I could move the knee pad pockets to suit.

Me 6’1 36″ leg size 12 wearing size 14 hem let down (left), Natalie size 10-12  wearing size 14.
Their website states that sizes range from 6 to 20,  but in reality they come up small, so realistically they range from 4 to 18.
The array of pockets is wonderfully useful. Not so many that you lose where you’ve put everything. But enough useful ones of varying shapes and sizes. The only real thing I feel they are missing is holster pockets. Trades people spend a lot of time on their knees (oi oi) so original style trouser pockets at the front are often rendered useless. The mens version ‘Dassy Seattle’ (of which I have two pairs) have the added bonus of Holster pockets and a hammer loop. I mean come on Dassy. Girls have hammers too!

For everything these trousers offer the price is unbeatable. Unbelievable vale for money. I’ve not seen anything else as good for less.

Overall despite a few lacking components, these trousers are so comfortable and look so good they are now my go to pair of trousers. I don’t want to wear anything else.

You can purchase these trousers online for around £35.00 from sites like Mammoth Work wear!
