Rated 2 out of 5 by Heshki Too Small
I ordered one size larger than I typically wear and these pants were still too small. I am returning them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Denims wrinkle free bayside pants
I have bought these pants for years but cannot buy them anymore. I needed the tall length which LL Bean not longer offers. I am searching for a new source of affordable pants for women in tall sizes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CompassPlant Too short, too tight
I tried these on and they are too short--only MT available now although T was available in the past. The waist is also too tight.

I agree with all other reviews that the waist is just too small.
I may return for the original fit comfort waist and try those.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LindaB59 This Size12 is too tight
I've been buying this pant for years in Size12, so did not worry about ordering 2 more for my unexpected business trip. I was very unhappy to find that they are very tight in the waist -- whereas my earlier size12s were actually a bit loose. This puts me in a real bind because i have no time to try to come up with another solution before i get on an airplane. VERY DISAPPOINTED. Cannot see myself trying to wear these, nor can i go up to a 14 --- hips will be way too big. LLBEAN - -what the heck?!?

Rated 1 out of 5 by California50 Miss the Curvy Fit
I've been buying Bayside Pants for years and loved that I didn't have to think about it all, just ordered the same size when my old ones wore out, but the waist on the last pair were too tight. I thought it was me, but then I saw all the other reviews that said the same thing about the original fit. I guess I have to wait for the curvy fit to come back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mingala Baysider original fit chinos.
I have a fairly normal configuration waist to hips, but the Bayside Original fit pants have a very tight waist and are normal to big in the hips. Very disappointment because they are well made with excellent fabric. Cannot get a bigger size to get a bigger waist because the hips would be much to large. Sad, since it is extremely difficult to find any women's pants with a waist that goes to the natural waist and not one micrometer below. Very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by shirttail Major mistake
About 2 inches too long for petite---dark brown picks up EVERYTHING! Sent back. I had shortened them and wore once.Could not get rid of them fast enough after wearing so washed and ironed them to go back. The LL return policy is the best one would ever find.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NWbiker Great pants, wrong sizes
I love these pants, in the pleated, original style. I still have several pairs that I wear all the time, and I keep coming back with the hope that you will stock the TALL sizes again (with regular waist - not the elastic ones). Those of us who are tall do not have a lot of options for where to buy long pants. Medium tall does not cut it. I am not trying to buy capris!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Painter269 Something has changed
I have purchased and worn about 10 of these pants in different colors and sizes over the years (I have gained and lost weight) and something is different. My suspicion is that these pants are being assembled/created by a different manufacturer. I'm 5'3" and 127 lbs. The 10 petite (with pleats) used to fit the way I like it -- somewhat loose, just the right length, and not too tight around my butt. But these pants (the last 3 size 10 I ordered are without pleats) now are too tight, hard to button, the rise is too high and the length way too long. This was the one product at LLBean that I thought I could count on, especially when they brought it back. Now I'm disappointed. I'm going to try the size 12.
