Rated 2 out of 5 by kalliopeus Pants faded with proper washing
I really like these pants. They look nice, fit well, and the waist is very becoming. Unfortunately they developed fade spots on the back of the right leg (large dramatic ones) after only six months. I was washing them cold, inside out, and drying them flat as the label suggested. I never use any form of bleach.
So these pants aren't color fast.

Rated 2 out of 5 by lovestallpantsgirl Sizes not true
I have ordered several pairs of cords from LL Bean and have never been this disappointed in an item. I wish I had read the reviews before I had my husband order them for me for Christmas. The waist is totally too tight and I ordered the size that I wear in every other pair of pants that I own from LL Bean and elsewhere. I won't make the mistake of ordering this style again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mweedon Sizing is wrong.
I thought that I could trust the sizing since I have bought and loved bayside pants in the past, but on these cords the fit was too tight in the waist and hips. I really wanted to buy some cords from LLBean, but I am disappointed. More and more I'm finding that the fit is wrong for pants or that the styles that I like do not come with traditional waists.

Rated 2 out of 5 by leftwanting Too Short
Beautiful corduroy,fit great through waist and hips,however, pants were much too short in the stride to be original fit tall. Had a pair from a couple a years ago and have loved wearing them, but when I measured what were supposed to be the exact same pants, the new ones were over an inch shorter in the stride front and back and not comfortable to wear. Had read other reviews that the pants were fitting differently and agree 100%.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 4crows 5' 8" with long legs and weigh over 200
i get this pants year after year even though they are short on me. i could use at least 2 more inches of length. BUT they are great pants and i cant find tall pants in my size. understand that its all about demand, but still cant understand why Tall pants are limited to Misses or XL. I wear size 20w, am 5' 8", with height carried in my legs. pants are often short for me, particularly at LLBean. But i am a teacher, a practical dresser, want durability,outdoorsy, like comfort,so end up at this website!
BUT PLEASE LLBean, how could it hurt to just lengthen your womens pants and let the short people shorten them if they have to. I cant lengthen them. Or make tall for 20W. i have resorted to getting my black knit pants elsewhere and used to get them with you regularly. I cant be the only one, right?

Rated 1 out of 5 by BostonRobin Waist too tight
I'm wearing these for the last time today. They are so uncomfortable because the waist is so tight. Who are they made for, anyway?
I read the reviews about the waist and ordered a pair in my usual size, 10, and another in a size 12. Guess what? Even the 12 is too tight! They look like culottes though, so even if the waist fit, I still wouldn't wear them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by LLJax Stretch Bayside Corduroys not quite right
I really wanted to fall in love with these pants, but I can only say that I only somewhat like them. While the material feels good, the waist is cut way too tight. That being said, the back on the waist area seems to be very much off - makes me look like I have "droopy drawers" in the back which is something that I would not expect from LL Bean. (I should state that I have a small waist and am hippy, so for me to say the waist is small seems strange). I can only give two stars due to the odd way they fit. I would send them back, but since they were on sale it isn't worth the price to ship them.

I followed the size chart and ordered an 18W, but the waist was a little tight. The material was nice and soft and felt good next to my skin. It was not rough like a lot of the other cords are. The colors are nice too. I ordered the green and burgundy, but returned them for the next size up. I hoope they fit better through the waist. The rise was nice to because in most women sizes you get all the material in the front and not enough in the butt area. These fit fine all the way around.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LibertyBelle You call that "Light" Khaki?
These cords fit great, and the material is still a nice weight, just like several years ago. My complaint is the color being called "light khaki", when it is actually a "British khaki"... big difference! I ordered "light khaki" several years ago, and it was nice and light. This is not! I have to keep them because my old pants are showing their age,but honestly I don't like this color, and its name is not representative of the actual color.

I really like the feel of the corduroy that is soft. I also like the front pleat but the size 8 was just a bit tight. It is still a nice pair of pants.
