Robell Trousers FAQs


Where can I find a size guide?

You can find a size guide on all the product pages. Simply scroll down to ‘choose size’, where you can find a ‘size guide’ button. This will open up an international size guide with UK, EU and the US sizing to help you find the right size for you.


What is the difference between Marie and Bella Styles?

Both the Marie and Bella trouser styles are straight fit trousers.

The main differences are that the Marie style has no pockets and minimal detailing, whereas the Bella style has two back pockets, faux front pockets and a double-stitched back seam.


Which is the best fit for the fuller figure?

We recommend the Marie and Bella styles for the fuller figure. The Marie and Bella are designed for the fuller figure, offering more room on the hips. The stretch bengaline fabric ensures they hug you in all the right places, and they are a classic straight fit.


How does sizing change between the styles?

Due to the range of different Robell styles, we may recommend going up or down a size on some styles.

As a general rule of thumb, we recommend dropping down a size in the Marie and Bella styles as they are a generous fit.

In contrast, we recommend going up a size in the Rose style as they are a slim fit.

In all other Robell styles, we recommend taking your usual size.


Which trousers have pockets?

Robell Trousers have pockets in the Bella and Nena styles. The Bella comes in various lengths, including 04 above the knee shorts, 05 knee-length shorts, 09 ankle grazer and full-length. The Nena is available as an 09 ankle grazer and a full-length.

There are also many Robell Jean styles with pockets, including the Elena, Star, Sonja, Helle, Joella, Bella Jeans & Nena Jeans. These are available in various lengths.


Do Robell offer shorter length trousers than the standard 31” and if so, in which styles?

Yes, Robell makes a 29” / 73cm petite length trouser. The petite length trouser is available in the Marie, Bella, Mimi and Jacklyn styles in various colours, patterns and fabrics, including denim and bengaline.


Do Robell offer longer length trousers than the standard 31” and if so, in which styles?

Yes, Robell makes a 32.5” / 82cm tall length trouser. The Tall length trouser is currently only available in the Marie style. We hope to offer more styles and colours in the future.


What is the difference between the lengths?
