Rated 5 out of 5 by ClothingHorse Great Cords
I tried to get these cords. in all three styles in the graphite color. They sold out before I knew it...I'm kinda in between two sizes, and all of a sudden the larger size in graphite was available. I'm 5'9", and for some reason, my inseam has become shorter with my 69 years...my rear has shrunk and waist expanded, but I got the regular inseam....The pants were a perfect fit, a little loose in the hips, but not much. I read the reviews and was hesitant to purchase because some posts said they shrunk in length and didn't launder well. That is absolutely untrue. If one follows the laundry instructions, they launder beautifully with no shrinkage. Tried on the pants before and after washing. Looking forward to wearing them now that I know, and thankfully, do not need to do a return and have the color I really wanted. Another wonderful LLBean find....

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mechelle1 Comfortable corduroys
I have several pair of these corduroys and find them to be warm and comfortable for chilly fall days and winter. My first pair I was surprised to find the wale was in the wrong direction. Subsequent pairs the wale went in the correct direction. This year, I bought the grey ones only to discover that once again the wale goes in the wrong direction. It is not a significant problem but as a person who sees, I notice this detail.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anna66 Poor Sizing!!
After reading previous reviews about the waist running small I ordered these a size larger than I normally wear. I am a size 8 and ordered a 10 and the waist was tight-even with the "comfort" waistband! I measured the waist and they are a size 6! These pants would only be suitable for someone with a very small waist and large hips and legs. If I ordered two sizes larger the legs and hips would be huge. Very disappointed.

These in no way compare to the many other Bayside cords I already have. They are definitely not true to size (small), the material is inferior and they arrived totally wrinkled. It remains to be seen whether I will keep or return them. Certainly NOT the quality I associate with LLBean.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lily2015 These run small!!
I usually wear a size 10 and was told by LLBean that these cords would fit just as my LLBean jeans do. I ordered a 10 and they were very tight! Had to send them back for a size 12 - they fit fine, but so do my size 10 jeans - so they do NOT fit the same! Order a size larger - they do run small!
Also - the replacement cords have definite marks like they were on a hanger in a dusty closet - appears to be a slightly bleached out line on one leg. Will see if that can be steam ironed to look OK - otherwise these may go back, too. Disappointed for sure!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bree140 Size 12 corduroys are smaller than size 12 twills
A word to the wise: if you already own a pair of Bayside twill comfort waist pants and like the way they fit, don't assume you'll take the same size in Bayside corduroy comfort waist pants. I recently bought a pair of Bayside corduroy comfort waist, original fit pants in a size 12, and had to return them because they were too small. I had assumed size 12 would fit me because, about two months earlier, I had bought a pair of Bayside twill comfort waist, original fit pants in size 12, and they fit perfectly (and they still do, so the issue isn't that my body has changed since I bought the twill pants). I'm mystified as to why size 12 Bayside corduroy comfort waist, original fit pants don't fit the same way as size 12 Bayside twill comfort waist, original fit pants. I clicked through to the "size chart" for both items, and the size charts are identical, so the fit should be identical -- but it isn't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Glissando Love The Comfort Waist!
So far I have ordered three pairs of these comfort waist pants. The comfort waist is almost hidden and you still look trim. The best part is that one word: Comfort. When I am shopping for LL Bean pants for any season I look for that one term--Comfort Waist. You can wear them for hours and they are still comfortable and look great. The corduroy fabric is soft and will be warm as we go into cooler weather. The fabric also wears well. They wash beautifully and will need little if any pressing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Glissando Perfect Fit....Can't Wait for Fall
I tried these on as soon as they arrived and they are perfect! The fabric is soft and gives just enough as you move. The best part is the comfort waist. No bulk and you are comfortable and still look trim. I have had LL Bean cords in the past and they are the best. They wear well and are a breeze to launder. Thanks LL Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marcy2 Great pair of cords
Stretch Bayside Corduroys comfort waist with original fit are very comfortable and fit my straight figure like a glove. Allow for some length shrinkage with washing. I like the width of the leg opening which stays down over my boots.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Aylasews1 Cordoroy pants
These pants fit beautifully until they are washed and dried, even at a low temperature. I lost two inches in length after laundering. Fortunately, I am a seamstress and will lengthen the pants. They will, however, look like they have been lengthened. This could have been avoided if the manufacture had prewashed the fabric.
