I hesitated about this pants because it seemed like I’m in between a size 1 and 2, but I decided to go with the size 1. I was so very surprised by how well the pants stretched to accommodate my post-pregnancy 33 inched waist without being uncomfortable. The fabric is so breathable, I love how soft and airy the titik fabric feels. The design has been so well thought out!
In my opinion, size 2 would have been a great choice too! May have been looser but because it’s designed so well, the overall structure would be there. Thanks again to the wonderful Dea and thank you to all you lovely people and Ibus of Sukkhacitta!
Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy to hear that the pants fit you well and that you find them comfortable, it is always a bit tricky for in-between sizes, but Dea is always more than happy to help you find the perfect fit.
The Nerd Pants is definitely an awesome pair of pants :) We lovee how it stretches while still keeping that sophisticated shape, making it all too easy to feel and look fantastic. And the TITIK fabric is great for humid weathers, it is very comfortable on the skin.
The biggest thank you Christine for loving the design. It's so important for us that our pieces can accompany you for a long time, so they were designed to maintain the integrity of its shape while our body goes through its different phases. Hope that you continue loving this beautiful piece Christine!
A bit of background story, I have always wanted to get something from Sukkha Citta, this time of year I finally got several pieces for a baptism event of my son, because I would like to share this philosophy of living that is the base of Sukkha Citta (he did not wear a new outfit for this event, but we borrowed a 30 year old hand-sewn "strampler" (in German) from a friend's brother.) I got this pants in size One, in Selah-Light Grey and PagiSenja-Malam to be shared between me and my husband because we are in need of pants. We are astonished because the cutting and elastic band makes it possible for us to share this luxurious feeling pants, I am 160 cm and he is 178 cm. The raw cotton is so soft, cooling but also giving enough warmth in the rainy summer nights (14-20 C) of Germany, the cutting is so comfortable for both of us, and we get complimented right away. We love how it is so individually made, they are to be treasured for a long time. The packaging is so beautifully made with such care, it feels like Christmas in summer when I received them. So grateful as well to Neng Gita who has been such a tremendous help throughout the process of answering all of my questions about fitting, styling, payment methods, shipping, and other things. Thank you Denica and your vision and mission, also to the rest of Sukkha Citta team, especially para Ibu-Ibu sekalian. PS: I am actively sharing Sukkha Citta to my friends and family now, also the importance of the slow fashion. A friend who does not really wear pants tried my nerd pants and she fell in love right away, so she also get one after many years of not buying/ wearing one :)
It’s so comfortable yet very flattering. The only bad thing is that I only bought one of it, now I have to wear other pants while mine’s on the wash :’)
Once you put it on, you know immediately this will be the pants you live in. Such a clever cut. For reference, I’m 5’1” and I like to wear it rolled once for casual outings. For formal settings, I wear it as is with heels and it just falls perfectly. The fabric is beautiful and breathable with subtle ikat motifs 🖤 Oh, did I mention the elastic at the back?
