Rated 1 out of 5 by snook123 tapered leg on original fit
bad fit after washing. These pants are too tight in the knee area. I thought I had ordered a straight leg pant, but instead I received two pairs of pants that are so tight from the knee down they are uncomfortable to wear. From the knee to the waist they are fine. When sitting they have no proper leg room in the knee area. These are original fit pants. I have a pair of favorite fit pants with a straight leg and these fit fine. If I order any more llbean pants I will only order the favorite fit pants that are a great and comfortable fit. I will turn the other two into shorts (cut off above the knee) to wear around the house in the summer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CurvyLady2 Bring back Curvy fit
I had to purchase these because the curvy fit pants are gone. While I do fit into them, there's no room in my normal size. I have trouble putting my keys in the pockets (i have a big bunch for work that constantly go in and out of the pocket). The thighs and front zip are too tight. I would return them, but I've worn them and there's no good alternative for exchange. I'm afraid to go up a size because they probably will swim on me.
The curvy fit pants were just right. From the other complaints here it seems that there are a number of people who like the curvy fit. Why not bring them back...

Love the pants. However the black does easily attract lint must brush them after they come out of the dryer and while wearing attracts lint. Khaki, stone are fine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Terrysmom Why did you change a great thing?!
I have worn Bayside twills, comfort waist, curvy fit in petite for years. I counted on knowing that they were the best fitting pants I would ever find. Recently, you eliminated the curvy fit, but I decided to try some new pants anyway. They are being returned. They are so tight in the waist and thigh that I cannot wear them. Please bring back the curvy fit. Hidden comfort waist just doesn't fit the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by josaysso Surprise! I like them
Well, I'm sitting here reading the 'bad' reviews and I strongly disagree with them but I did buy a bigger size 20W. Bought 3 pair, 3 colors. They are wonderful. Fit well. Wash well. And feel good on. Not tight.
Now, here's another shock... I bought some 2 years ago and they were returned as fast as I opened them. The fit was terrible. So, I think this year's batch are much better.

I have bought these pants for years. Decided I wanted some new ones and ordered the same size as last year. I even tried on an old pair and they fit so good. Just returned all the pants I ordered. All too tight. Wish you hadn't messed with a perfect pair of pants. Haven't you heard "if it ain't broke then don't fix it?" I loved the new green color but had to return the pants. Please bring back the curvy fit so I can order some more pants.
I Love the fabric, doesn't wrinkle. Sob. I have to wear my old ones now.

Rated 2 out of 5 by lsdarling LLBean: Why Did You Change These Wonderful Pants?
Last year I purchased these pants in black and navy and just loved them (size 10). This year I was thrilled to see brown and green and purchased both in size 10. I could barely get them zipped and buttoned. I went back and tried on my other ones - just to be sure - and they fit great. I also have the Double LL Jeans - size 10 - and they fit fine. What did you do to change the size? I returned them and bought size 12, but they are too big. I am so very disappointed. Please bring back the pants you had last year in the brown and green.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ChathamChick Different Color/Different Fit??
I purchased my first pair of these pants in the coffee brown color and the fit was good, a little roomy, which was good because even washing in cold water cotton tends to get a little tighter. After I tried them and really, really liked them I ordered two more pair, one black and one in the khaki color. They were both cut much, much smaller than the coffee brown pair. I kept them anyway because they seemed okay. The khaki color developed a vertical tear next to the belt loop (probably not repairable) after 3 washings/wearings. Disappointed. I'm going to replace the khaki color with the next size up and hope they won't be way too big. Why can't the fit be the same across all the colors?

Rated 1 out of 5 by GATeacher Please bring back curvy fit
I ordered 3 pairs of these in my usual size 14 medium to update my fall wardrobe. I took off the pair I was wearing and had purchased only last year--a pair that fits nicely, even a little loose across the backside--to try on the new pair. They were so tight I could barely zip or button them. Thinking they were mis-sized I tried on the other two pairs. Also too small in every way. Why? Please bring back the old curvy fit. I've been a loyal customer for years and now I have to find another place to buy pants. I'm so disappointed.
