Rated 3 out of 5áby StarryCrab Fabric too stretchy
I purchased these pants for the classic cut and stretch fabric. I like that they don't gap badly at the waist, although they are a bit roomy when first put on. Unfortunately as the day goes on they became quite baggy. Washing and going through the dryer do not help. I hesitate to buy a size smaller. Exchanging a reasonable fit that turns sloppy for a tight fit that finally stretches to size is not a good solution.

I have two pairs of these pants and I love them! They fit me perfectly and are extremely comfortable, but also nice looking - I wear them to work all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5áby SouthernLady01 Great Pants
Soft fabric and the waist fits perfectly! I have a small waist and usually have about four inches more than I need in the waist. However with the hidden elastic on the inside of the waistband, the pants fit perfectly regardless of waist size! I've ordered 4 pairs and will order more. Just one suggestion for improvement LLBean - PLEASE replace the scratchy tags in the back of the waistband with just a stamp on the material. They were so irritating, I had to remove all of them before I could wear the pants. But small matter - I love the pants!

Rated 4 out of 5áby LikeLL2010 Very nice pants.....
but I really have trouble with length. I ordered the regular length and still have to try them on with various pairs of shoes before I decide whether or not they are too long. Exchanging for petite is not an option because those will be too short. Other than that, these are very nice in terms of the quality of the material and the style. I prefer fuller-cut pants for work.

These pants are very comfortable because of the stretch, BUT, they wrinkle a lot. After just a short while, they look like I slept in them, which isn't a very professional look, since I wear these at work. Also, the legs are baggy and too loose fitting. These are one of the highest priced khakis from LLBean, so I expected a more polished, professional look and am very disappointed. I'm returning them.

Rated 5 out of 5áby luvkrafts Great fabric and fit
I have been buying LLBean Twill pants for years. My favorite pairs are about 15 years old, but the hems have frayed so it is time to replace them. Tried the 100% cotton twill pants but the fabric content was not to my liking. I was very happy to see the fabric in these pants is a cotton blend, similar to the blend in my favorites from long, long ago. Generally do not like elastic waists, but the elastic in these pants is not bunchy and just gives the pants that tighter waist fit, thus eliminating the waist gap I usually have with pants. The regular length was too short for me and I ended up exchanging for MT.
Love, love, love these pants and have them in both black and khaki. More colors, like navy, would be wonderful!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Schnarps Fit me perfectly
These fit me perfectly in 18W. At first they were a bit tight in the waist and the legs but within an hour stretched to be extremely comfortable but not at all baggy. I have learned over the years to buy my pants in the smaller size when the material contains stretch because if such pants fit well when first putting them on, they will almost fall off of me within an hour or 2. I am therefore very happy with these pants. The material is lightweight but not flimsy, and the hidden comfort waist is a truly great feature. Have already ordered a second pair! Love them.

Rated 3 out of 5áby LoneWriter Please bring back petite plus
I have already reviewed these pants favorably, as they are excellent for long-waisted people. They are very comfortable with plenty of room in hips and thighs. Also, they do not gape or precipitously dip at the small of my back when I sit down or bend over.
My main complaint this season is that L.L. Bean has stopped offering these trousers in plus petite. While I could hem them, I've found the regular length to be wider at the bottom than the petite, so the pants also need to be tapered slightly from the knee down, and I lack that skill. As is, these fit more like bootleg pants, even after going through the dryer.
Perhaps if Bean dropped the price to a more reasonable $39.99, I wouldn't balk at additional alteration. A recent catalog cover announced hundreds of new petite styles ... just not for anyone wearing 18W and over.

Rated 5 out of 5áby erikawithak truly awesome pants!
I have an extremely difficult time finding pants that fit properly because I am short and very curvy (very small waist in relation to my hip/butt/thigh area); if I can find pants that fit in the larger areas, the waist is always so ridiculously large, I could easily fit a baby in the gaping space left in the back of the waist of the pants! Not to mention, the length is almost always too much, even with petite sizes. That being said, I am always skeptical when trying on pants, as I was with these. I pulled them on and turned around and could not believe what I saw! They fit perfectly!! The waistband laid flat without being tight; there was enough room in the butt/thigh area without being baggy or too loose. The length was even perfect, with a slight break as the pant hit the top of my foot! Unfortunately, the store only had 2 pair in my size (1 in the twill and 1 in the rinsed denim--also fabulous, by the way), but I was able to order more online. Please, please, please, LL Bean, do not let these pants be a limited time design offering!! I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to find pants that fit and that fit in a very slimming, flattering way. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
