Rated 1 out of 5 by Grannynana Sigh !!
I have several of these pants purchased in the last few years, they were the only bean pants that fit well. I recently lost weight so ordered some new stretch pants. They are so different from the stretch pants I own and can still wear after loosing 15lb.I wondered if I had ordered the wrong pants.
The material and sizing are so different and are not an improvement. The size 12 sizing no longer fits at all and my new size, a 10, are to tight in the hips but big in the legs. I had learned that they shrink up 1 inch when washed so have always ordered a long, not these. You'd think that was an improvement but the fit is so off everywhere.
I love LLBean but doubt I'll be ordering any more pants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by peake Zipper not up to scratch
Love these pants . They are stretchy and comfortable and sit where it makes sense at the waist but OH the zipper. LLbean is making their zippers shorter and the pull on the zipper gets lost at the bottom and can be a bear to get a hold of. Poorly designed zipper otherwise a fine pair of pants.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CostaMesaOrchid Skimpy cut, fabric feels like cardboard
I have purchased this style before, my old one was getting a bit worn-looking. I ordered the same size... The old one reaches comfortably to my waist and has an easy fit across the hips. Fabric was soft from the beginning (of course softer now) This one, nominally the same size, is cut much lower-waisted, skimpy in the hips, and the fabric is stiff as cardboard. (I was barely able to get the button unbuttoned to try it on, the button hole was also a bit small and with no "give" to the fabric, it took a very hard push) Quality has slipped seriously for many products, but this one was the worst to date. I am glad that I have an LL Bean credit card so that return shipping is free... If it were not for that, I'd stop ordering from this company altogether because I end up returning more than I keep..

Rated 5 out of 5 by JTwinkle No Baggy in Tummy area
I am a plus woman with a waist. Size 20- Most jeans in my size have a baggy tummy area that I am constantly pulling up all day. Either that or a big gap at the back waist area. These are perfect for that problem. NO baggy tummy! No GAP at back of waist. But there is a problem. THEY ARE HARD TO GET! Almost always sold out on line. And in store it's almost a miracle to find them. I hope LL Bean is reading this. Buy more, get more length sizes as I need them 2 inches longer. And I do like the colors offered but a lighter color choice would be nice. I wanted to order today but my size is SOLD OUT! Last pair I was able to buy was in Colonie NY store last Fall. I bought the last pair they had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kajbeach Need to be offered in more colors!
These are my "go to pants" for everything but dress-up. The slightly stretchy waistband makes the pants seem natural but still allows for that extra give later in the day. I originally purchased "short" because I'm just barely 5' 4" but found they did not work with heels (although perfect for flats) so now I buy the "average". Those seem to work well and aren't overly long when wearing flats. I would purchase more but have one in every color now. Need more color options!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JillOhio Finally, denim that fits
I have tried on more jeans than I can count in the past couple of months and none fit. They all have big waists but I have a small waist and bigger hips. I took a chance on ordering these and they fit perfectly. I just got them today so we'll see how they fit after washing. The legs and thigh are a bit baggy but I can live with that to have a pair of jeans that I can actually wear. I would also like to see more colors as I need more pants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lakeknitter good quality, waist good, legs baggy
The quality of construction is good and the pants fit well in the waist and hip, However, below the hip they are very baggy. When I sit down, they pull across the thighs and have several wrinkles going across the thighs due to this pulling.
I also purchased the lakewashed classic fit pants in the same size 8 and these fit very well with a slimmer cut leg, very comfortable. I feel good and feel that they look good on me.
Would only recommend this pant if a person has heavier thighs and needs the extra fabric in that area.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLBeanshopaholic2 Somewhat disappointing
I love the fit of the pants, rise, length and waist. However, the pants leg is much wider than it appears to be in the catalog picture. I would like a slightly more tapered look in the future.

Rated 2 out of 5 by caminoista Should have listened to other reviewers
Why did I ignore reviewers who mentioned how wide the legs were?? Are we back to bell-bottoms? I thought briefly about trying to take them in (they're too wide all the way down) but, given the price, it's not worth paying more. These go back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gills75 Great Pants, very comfortable
These pants are awesome! I have such a hard time finding pants that fit. I really do wish they came in more colors! I would definitely be buying more if they did!
