Rated 1 out of 5 by Anothertraveler The sizing is much too tight in the waist
The sizing is too tight in the waist compared to it's cousin the shorts. I have shorts that are the same style and size, not comfort waist, but the pants are much tighter than the shorts. My shorts are loose and comfy but the pants waist is too tight. I've been noticing that others are also writing similar reviews that the waist is too tight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ssddspas Blousy in the Hip
This style sits above the waist, for which measurements seem to vary. Customer Service finally had staff measure a bunch of 8P pants until several were found with 29" waists (as published for that size) to replace 28" waists that were too tight. I wish these pants were not so loose in the hips. Usually, pants are too loose in the waist if they fit in the hips. Not these. So Ladies, if you have hourglass figures, these should be a perfect fit. I also wish the pants were not so tapered in the legs, which accentuates the blousy hips. All the other Bayside pants have lower waists, which are uncomfortable. Finally, I wish Bean's petite pants had 29" inseams to accommodate petites with longer legs. All that being said, Bean's customer service is splendid.

These are great right out of the dryer. Fit is true. Too bad they didn't have the brown ones in stock...guess I'll have to order earlier next year.

I love the fit and the wash and wear style of these pants. The fit is always what I need. I have to order petite sizes for my height. They are just a wee bit too short for me but they look nice. I really like that they are wash and wear too and look nice right out of the dryer. My last pairs lasted about 5 years before they started getting frayed and fading. I wear them to work everyday and they get washed every week. I think that some of the fading part is because we have well water though. Highly recommend these pants!

Rated 3 out of 5 Size does not match sizing charts
The size does not match the sizing chart. I measured myself carefully and followed their sizing chart and the pants were too small. If you get these pants get two sizes bigger than the sizing chart.

I am happy with pants but liked the two button overlap that came on previous pants-----a tailoring detail.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ArizonaLLBEANer Bayside twill pants, original fit, plain front.
I have bought these pants in a regular length and would like them a little longer so tried the medium/tall. They were too long so had to return them. Otherwise they were fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanSavvy Comfort, class & great value!
This is my third purchase of this style of pants. I now own them in three different colors.They are durable, classic pants that fit well & make a good appearance wherever I go.
I would highly recommend them as a matter of fact & often do when I receive compliments while wearing them which is quite frequently.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BlanceDubois What happened to the old sizing??
I have worn these pants for years - always my favorite!! BUT - this new order is cut differently and not the same sizing as before. My previous orders of the same size fit perfectly, however this new sizing, or whatever it is, is cut too tightly in the waist. Please LLBean - go back to the old sizing and cut!

I searched for office pants and found these "fit the bill". Nice fabric, comfortable on skin and wearable all year long. I hang right from the washer by the bottom of the pant and don't iron them. At 5'9" I purchase the Medium Tall for the length of the pant but find the rise is little high, since my height is my legs and not torso. But overall, I have purchased this style pant numerous times over the years because they are a A+ over other brands.
