Pull on pants

My mom is in her 80s. She wears elastic waist pull on pants. They are either 100 percent cotton or 97. I think they must be extinct. Does anyone know where I can get her new ones? I have searched stores and the internet. All I am finding is knit pants, polyester, skin tight leggings, flared legs, capris, way too baggy, etc. The only pair I have seen that look decent are from LL Bean. She said no way is she paying $50 for pants and forbidden me to buy them for her.

Try Googling "elastic waist cotton pants for woman or try elderly woman". When I did it there were many various sites and reasonably priced.

Also in plus sizes:


Check out Ebay...

Did you try Walmart or kohl’s?

Try Boscovs my Mom buys her pull on pants there

Alfred Dunner was the first brand that popped in my head. I know JcPenney always carried them.

Just thought about Blair...almost all of their slacks are pull-on

Land's End carries them as well.


Leggings are a good choice. They are the rage amongst women today. Comfortable and pull on.

Thank you all for responding. I think Boscovs may be the best bet. I haven't been there in quite some time. Plus I'll get to see them before buying.

For my mom I bought her leggings from Chico. They were cotton and had a wide waistband. She was very petite and small sized but I got her a larger size so they wouldn’t be skin tight. The look was really nice and they looked like well fitting slacks.

QVC own brand - Denim and Co. - has many types of pull-on elastic waist pants - some w/ pockets on side,etc. plus different sizes from XXS - 5X in different heights - petite, regular and tall. Some knit/some cotton blends, etc. Ship right to you to try on - ship back what you don't want.

Hi, absolutely know the best company with the best pricing.


Many others on their site.

Woman Within- takes about 2 weeks to get items but they LAST.
Can't beat their $$ and value.
I use them for active wear duties (not shopping but chores) and they wear and WASH fantastically!

Hope this helps :)

To ajms - I just checked out woman within. I sent them an email because the pants my mom wants to try are supposed to be part of their warehouse sale, $8.99. when we looked at the pants it shows $8.99 to $29.99. I clicked on every size and color and they all come up as $29.99. besides this possible glitch the site looks promising. Thank you.

I agree re: Woman Within - my grandmother shopped using their mail order catalog 20 years ago and my mom, now in her 80’s, orders via their website today. Good quality and nice variety.

I second Boscovs. After looking absolutely everywhere I went there. Inexpensive and wide variety

You can check out Poshmark or other reselling websites.

Have taken care of 2 grandmother's and one grandfather finding things like elastic waists and Velcro shoes can be hard - try this old timey catalogs website - it helped me more then once and prices are very fair!

Land's End as mentioned works the best.

Try Amazon. I've gotten a few clothing items for myself and hubby, and they were surprisingly nice. Read the reviews.
