Customer reviews for Columbia Women's Back Beauty™ Capri

Columbia Women's Back Beauty™ Capri

Stretch properties in this flattering woven capri provide comfort during dynamic activities and UPF 50 sun protection is built right in, but the real beauty is in the fit; the contoured waistband conforms to your curves and gives you perfect coverage where you need it most.

I have the Black Beauty shorts in XS (a bit tight if I've been having burgers & beers) and small (to wear when I'm at the top of my 5 lb weight variance). I love the shorts. They even fit me in the waist - I'm a pear shape & most pants have a big gap at my waist. The fabric is a great weight - more body & a better feel. I was looking forward to having these in a capri. However, the small capri is far smaller than is the XS shorts so I returned them. I tried on a medium but they were too big. So there's a huge size gap between small & medium. Great product if you can find a size that fits you.
I would recommend this product.

The fabric that makes up this pair of pants is really strange. It's stiff... They run a little large and don't fit as well as other pairs of Columbia pants I have.
I do not recommend this product.

Very well constructed pants that would be perfect for hiking or other outdoor activities, but are not going to work as well for yoga which had been why I bought them. The fabric is a bit noisy when brushing together and not the traditional lycra/spandex that I had expected. The fit is also a little bit large as I had expected them to fit closer around my thighs and knees.
I do not recommend this product.

I am in love with the entire line up of the Back Beauty pants from Columbia. I also have the boot cut and the straight leg. I live in them! They are classy enough to wear out (even to work, in my casual environment) and comfortable enough to wear on a run. They wash really well and I've put them through a ton of wash and wear cycles already. I'm writing this review after popping over to the site to order another pair since I want to wear them every day!
They seem true to size for me. I generally wear a size 6 in pants and the Medium fits me perfectly.
I would recommend this product.

I was looking for a sturdy capri pant that would hold up to rock climbing and various outdoorsy activities - something that wouldn't be destroyed like a yoga capri. This really does the job phenomenally! My only complaint is that the crotch is unusually high on these pants, so much that I had to buy the next size up so that they wouldn't ride. Otherwise, really comfortable and durable capri!

Bought these and a long straight leg for vacation after trying the skinny leg. They'll be well broken in for vacation, I can't seem to pack them away. My husband remarks how flattering they are. They feel like just the right amount of fabric, not hot, not flimsy, and they hold their shape well during wearing. How about a couple more colors?
I would recommend this product.
