If it ain't broke....Like other reviewers, I bought last year's style culottes for my daughter. She loved them and they were great for school as they were loose enough to resemble a skirt (which is the official uniform). I was therefore incredibly disappointed when I bought these - they are effectively shorts with a pleat at the front and therefore totally unsuitable for her as school uniform. They are a much tighter fit which is possibly why the pockets have been removed. Come on M&S - why would you think that girls don't need pockets?
I am now on the hunt for a suitable pair of culottes for next year - I just wish that M&S hadn't messed up a perfectly good product.

Good but not Excellent like the original styleMy daughter had M&S school culottes for the last two years. She's very particular about what she wears and the old style got 5 stars - Excellent!
The new ones have a "better" pleat at the front as it is sewn in (easier for mum to iron) but there are no pleats at the back (so it looks like shorts and not great for cartwheels) and there are no pockets (seriously mum - no pockets).
So if you've never had these before they are excellent, but disappointing for repeat customers.
Any chance M&S could bring back the old style with the improved pleating????

different style not as goodPurchased these for past 4 years for daughter and they have been excellent! So why oh why M&S change a good thing?? Purchased another pair for next year and have had to return them. Got same size as currently wears but they are much bigger, have more material flapping around legs, are longer and don't have pockets! Such a shame as culottes are essential for playground activities such as climbing, monkey bars and hanging upside down, hand stands and cart wheels. Very disappointing.

Why change a style that works?So disappointed with the new culottes on offer.
My daughter has worn M&S skorts/culottes for the last two years since starting school and they have been brilliant until now. They look like a skirt, have pockets (which are always needed) and allow plenty of space for movement.
Unfortunately the updated version falls far short of this. They are longer, look like shorts rather than a skirt, have no pockets and do not allow for as much flexibility of movement.
I purchased these assuming they would be the same and was so disappointed, as was my daughter, to find they were different. They will definitely be returned.

Change in design from last year - bad move!My daughter has worn M&S culottes for the past 2 years and has loved them. I have just bought two pairs for this coming September and have discovered the design has changed and it is not for the better in my opinion. The pleats at the back have been removed so rather than them looking like a skirt from the back they are very short-like. Also the pockets have been removed which is not a good thing.
My daughter does not like the new look and has refused to even consider wearing them in Sept. They are going straight back.

8yo loves theseDaughter loves wearing culottes to school - she is very active and for a year now wears only culottes and trousers to school.
She loves these. They look great.
My only criticism is the pockets could be a bit deeper. It's great to see pockets as weirdly pockets are often left off girls uniform (but not boys - go figure), but the pockets are a little shallow for her liking.
The quality is good, they wash easily.

Daughter loves themThese are really good, my daughter loves them and always chooses them over her dresses and skirts. They look lovely and smart on.
I bought a size larger after reading previous reviews but they are slightly too big so I think they are true to size. Luckily they have an adjustable stretch waistband so I could make them fit.
I noticed they have white stitching across the bottom of the pleats, I think you are supposed to unpick this to make the culottes fuller and more like a skirt. It would look a bit odd if you didn't unpick it but there are no instructions that say to do so.

Lovely culottes for schoolGreat quality and they wash well. No need for ironing...hooray!
They look really smart and also quite quirky as they look like a shirt. Great as my daughter is always hanging upside down so keeps her covered up!
My daughter has had lots of complements on them. Would highly recommend. Great for summer and sure they will do with tights in the winter.
Waist is adjustable so I bought a bigger size.
