Plus size Palazzo pants differ from both gauchos and bell bottoms. Gaucho pants only reach mid-calf. Bell bottoms begin flaring below the knee.

This style of trouser has a definite feminine look. They’re soft on the eyes and waive gently with a breeze. You’ll find the plus size styles go on easily. Once in place you’ll look like you’re wearing a maxi-skirt but still have the comfort and flexibility pants afford.

There is only one thing that some buyers didn’t like about these slacks. Some of the fabrics are so thin as to be see through. You may need to wear something underneath depending on the setting. Other than that, they’re plenty long and made in enough varieties that you can find a plus size Palazzo pant for nearly any occasion.
