Rated 1 out of 5 by LLBNY Baggy and sloppy
This pant is very baggy in the legs and they sag with wear, giving it a sloppy and matronly appearance. Both pairs that I ordered have been returned.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Peartree Too much material in hips and thighs
I am 5'6" and 135 lbs. I normally wear a size 8. I carry any extra weight in the "saddlebag" area and I normally don't mind a wider leg. However, these pants are not a flattering fit for me. I did order a size 10 which was too big all over but I was worried the waist would be tight after reading the reviews.
The rise was also higher than expected and came to 1/2 inch below my belly button. A bit too old school for me. The leg length was very good with a bit extra for a wee heel and the fabric was very nice.
An 8 would have fit but the hips would have been too wide making me look much heavier than I am. If you have a very curvy figure (ie. a small waist with big hips) these pants might work for you.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jerseywalkermom Legs too wide
I was happy to see these 'favorite fit' pants offered again, but disappointed in the fit. The description says they are 'slightly fitted' in thighs but I find them to be very baggy. I do really like the material-wrinkle resistant all cotton & like the waist fit. The medium is also too long for me so I reordered in petite but these did not fit right. I am 5'5" so medium usually works. It's too bad they are so baggy; they will be going back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CarolynJane Very disappointed.
I want to know what LL Bean has done with its sizing. I have two pairs of Bayside twills from 5-6 years ago that fit fine. I ordered a pair this year and they are cut completely differently - even though they are supposed to be Original Fit. They are also at least a size smaller than they should be. A size 8 has always fit me but these are too small. Another reviewers said she measured them to make sure and they are definitely cut smaller than they used to be. I ordered a pair in khaki and in green and they are both going back. LL Bean FIX YOUR SIZING!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by OldFashionedGal Very nice pants
I already own a pair of these in black that I ordered 2 or 3 years ago. When I ordered these in khaki, I was very pleased to discover that they have not changed in quality since then - still "top notch" (and they launder really well, too!). Regarding fit: I'm 5'7", 135 lbs., somewhat pear-shaped. I ordered the size 8 in regular length so that I can wear these with flat shoes. The only adjustment I had to make was a few micro darts in the waist, but that's never been uncommon for me in medium rise pants. If these had a slightly lower rise, I wouldn't have had to do even that. I'm very happy with these pants and look forward to wearing them. Thank you, LLB, for making pants for real women, not sticks!

Rated 3 out of 5 by WoheloWaterWitch When smaller sizes in "normal" clothes??
Please, PLEASE start offering your normal (non-Signature) women's clothing in sizes 0 and 2!! All the jeans and twills and other pants are huge on us little gals.

Rated 1 out of 5 by kajsdfeiojr fit is weird and make pockets more flattering.
Not sure what is going on with these pants. I ordered two sizes - the smaller size was kinda tight in the hips but the larger size was all baggy in the butt and the waist was huge. And can we talk about pockets? You used to make a twill pants with no pockets or tiny pockets right on the waistband. I don't understand why anyone would make pockets that pop out at the hips - not where most women want extra things making everything look bigger. I usually fit into LLBean pants really well but this time I ordered two styles and neither fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bbbukb Why don't they all fit the same?
I really like these pants. I have all the colors. However, I received two recently, one in green and one in string, that did not fit like the others. They were smaller; not quite long enough and almost too tight in the waist. I am disappointed that LL Bean's sizes do not appear to be standard anymore. I did order another pair of green, hoping they will be sized correctly. I hope you carry them in stock long enough for me to find a pair that fits as well as the others I have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanMember1year Pleased with these pants!
Needed a pair of khaki and ordered the stone color. They washed up perfectly and wore nicely. I am so glad to find a pair that does not wrinkle when I sit for long hours. Hands down, the best and I will order more in this Favorite fit. I am 5'3 and ordered the petite. I will probably order the regular length for Winter shoes seem to grab the heels of my pants. So glad to have this Go To!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Purplerocks Fit through hips, wide in the leg
The material is hefty and they fall nicely. They fit well in the waist and came just to where the description said the Favorite Fit would. They fit well through the hips, but the legs are wider than I like. Also, when I measure my inseam 28" comes just to the top of my feet but these pants were slightly shorter than that. I might have measured my inseam wrong but these were shorter than I like to wear my pants.
