Rated 2 out of 5 by CentexMom Nice pants but the fit is disappointing
These are nicely made pants, the color and style are just what I wanted at an excellent price. However the fit was very disappointing. The waist is WAY too tight, even though I got the comfort waist. The petite is about two inches too long. The other pants that I have gotten from Bean have fit perfectly so I suspect there were made somewhere else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pat1111 Bring back the pleats
I love the bayside twills pleated look but the comfort waist is too bulky. If you have to do a comfort waist then at least make it hidden. This pants collection is fabulous. I wear them 5-6 days a week, wash them often and still get comments about how neat they look. You brought back the deep pockets now being back the pleats!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheHappyQuilter Great Buy!
Finally a pair of pants that fits my "pear shape" body! I thought that I might be going out on a limb buying these pants, but I was pleasantly surprised. I did have to hem them as I need a length between petite and regular, but that task was easily accomplished. I have washed these pants and run them through the dryer. They look fantastic. Now to order additional colors!!

These pants are wonderful! The waist, hip, rise ratio is spot on for ladies with hips and a narrower waist. The cut is slim enough to be flattering, but roomy enough just where it's needed to be active and bend in comfort.
I agree with the other reviewers that it's time to bring back both the pleated style pant and the longer skirt with this regular waist. I'd also love to see these made in the USA. :>)
VERY IMPORTANT! Order these according to L.L.Bean's size chart, not what size you wear from other stores. Don't guess! Measure! (I wear an 8 from most stores with "vanity sizing", but a 12 in L.L. Bean.)

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by HERB31 Bayside original fit
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.
