Rated 3 out of 5 too baggy and out of style
I bought five of these pants in different colors in my regular size 4 petite. They fitted me at waist and hips but were too wide on legs like an elephant. I looked very heavy, awful and old. I am only 5'3" and 120 lbs. I wish I did not have to return them since I love the fabric. Hidden Comfort Waist might be a good idea in theory but to me it makes the waist line very bulky. With very low rise, this super wide leg style just did not look right on petite women.

Rated 5 out of 5 Pefection!
I am short (5'0") and wide-ish and have so much trouble finding the right pants. These fit me just right! The length is perfect - Misses, 18 Petite (I normally have to look at Women's in other stores). They are slightly long, so would work for someone a little taller as well. They are lined, which makes me feel more polished. The best part is the fabric, super soft! The herringbone pattern is faint, so don't worry about a busy pattern. I will purchase at least one more pair in another color. I know these will be staple items for a long time. I was concerned at first about the lower rise waist and snug fit, but that turned out to be very comfortable and appropriate for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Happyladygolfer Love the material!
I am 5'7" and the regular length pants size 10 are too short at 30" but tall is too long at 32". I wish regulars were 31". I like the adjustable waist but the pocket lining shows if it stretches even a little. The material has a wonderful soft feel and the pants wash beautifully. I fell in love with the material on a trip to the store in Freeport, ME in September. I do plan to order a skirt of the same material.

Rated 3 out of 5 by chrisusa46 Nice but out of style
Ordered these pants in a size 6 as I've lost weight and need to "rebuild" my wardrobe. The length #petite# was good and the pants were perfect for my new waist size but that's where the praise stops! There's far too much extra material in the seat area....not a fan of the baggy bottom look. And as others have mentioned, the legs are entirely too big! In the late '60's and early '70's I had a closet full of bell-bottoms #tight waist/hips and enormous legs# but these days I prefer clothes that fit close to my body, not tight, just streamlined without a lot of extra material. The pants are very well made but the style is not flattering for us smaller gals.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Richardsmom Lovely material, but clown legs
The cloth is beautiful and the pants fit me well at my waist and hips, but the legs are so full that I felt as though I were wearing clown' s pants. It's not worth the expense of tailoring, given that the pants are lined. These were returned immediately, sorry to say.

The fabric really looks like wool and the lining adds to the comfort of these pants. The gentleman from LL Bean was so helpful when I was ordering and he read the garment measurements and that determined the size I ordered. Because of this I ordered one size smaller and the fit is perfect all around.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Montpelierite Didn't run large
After reading other reviews that suggested these pants usually run large, I ordered a 10, and some other LL Bean pants in a 12. These were a bit too tight, and with the lining there is little give or stretch. Will try a 12 next. The fabric is nice and soft but I am a little worried it will pill with repeated washings... Will see...
Length is good and I am 5'8".

Rated 5 out of 5 by busyhandsnana Delightfully soft!
Just what I've been looking for! Smooth, cuddly cotton(reminds me of fine wool). Nicely lined. Versatile color. Perfect for going out to dinner on a cold New England weekend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mejoan different fit
I have three pair, so they must suit my purpose. The waist on all three differ in size by about an inch although they are all size 10.
Mighty good feel here in Virginia this winter and I do wear them to work. However I am an unstylish over 70 year old. Warmth and comfort are my goal.

Having read the other reviews, I ordered these pants in both 8, my usual size and in 6. The 6 worked just fine. Do want to mention that they are heavier than I thought, and fully lined, so they will be winter pants for me.
