Rated 3 out of 5 by LuvToWander Ok-but no go
They are well made, but as noted in other reviews, the fabric is soft but on the thin side. It is more stretchy than I would prefer and I agree that it will stretch out more than desired with wearing and washing. I got a pair in the navy, but out of the package, the color looks faded and washed out. I fear more washings will only make it worse. I'm finding navy blue in the cotton knits do not hold their color well at all. It went back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jensen Great for Travel
The fabric of ultrasoft sweats is thinner than some other sweats but that wakes them great for travel. I am at an age when all my future travel will be to a warm climate and include a beach but I still want a comfortable and somewhat stylish garment to take with me. These ultrasoft sweats have turned out to be the perfect item for travel because they are not made with a heavy fabric that adds weight to my suitcase. I currently have 4 sets and plan to purchase more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by IhasBean Very disappointed
I have several pairs of Bean french terry sweatpants from a few years ago and was looking to replace them, but certainly not with these. I am so disappointed... these really should not be called sweats as the fabric is very thin and not at all warm. They will probably function better as a yoga pant as they are extremely stretchy. I would return them, but honestly, it's just too much trouble. I will be looking elsewhere to find what I really want. I'm sorry to say, but Bean has let be down several times lately with what I perceive to be a general decline in quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Harpy Will stretch over time
The fabric used in these sweats is very soft, warm, and comfortable. When I first put them on, the fit was perfect, too. However, after only a few months of wear, they have stretched considerably in length. The fit in the waist and hips remains good, but they have become so long that I now have to roll them up twice to avoid tripping over them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alexsim Comfortable and great fit
It's really hard to find sweat pants in petite sizes, so I wasn't sure how well these would work. Basically, I love them! The fit is great, the fabric isn't too light or heavy, and the waistband is just right. I hope these will continue to be part of LL Bean's stock items. I got these in Petite Medium.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LovesDeals Good quality; would love more colours
I bought a few of these and love the softness. At 160 cm and 68 kg - 5'4" and 150 lbs, I found the medium to be a good size even though my waist is 32" . When the weather goes below 0 C - 32 F, I wear the double-layered long underwear with the sweats and together they keep me warm.
It would be great if there were colours like dark pink, wine or some pant versions of the beautiful colours in the tops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by svnisus Just Perfect!
At 5'3" tall and 170 lbs. it;s often hard to find pants that fit my hips and aren't too long. I ordered the XL-Petite in the grey and they are perfect! So glad to see they now have two additional colors.
Plus, they are extremely soft and wash up nicely. No shrinkage at all.
Thanks, LL Bean!

Rated 4 out of 5 by CasualB Soft, comfy for exercise
These pants are luxuriously soft and comfortable. I wear them to aerobics class in the winter and sometimes all day at home. They do run large and long, so thanks to the reviewers who mentioned this. I usually wear medium size (I'm 5' 6", 125 lbs), but I ordered these pants in small, and they're plenty roomy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wowfreeshipping Happy with my purchase.
Good quality & soft sweat pants that look flattering. Straight legs. I'm 5'2" & 115 pounds, and I ordered a Petite Small & it fits me perfectly because I like my pants loose. It hangs straight down nicely. It does go up to my waist as it was intended. However, ideally, I would have liked it better if it sits lower on my hips. But that's just my personal preference, and it's a small "complaint". The pockets are fantastic because I could put my cell phone in there when I take a walk. I would buy these sweat pants again. Thanks, LLBean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wowfreeshipping Good quality sweat pants.
Good quality sweat pants that are warm and soft. One of the best things is the pockets. I'm 5'2" & weigh 115 pounds, and I ordered a petite small. It fits great for me because I like pants that are loose; the length is also perfect for my height...it does go up to my waist as this item was intended. However, ideally, I would have preferred that it sits lower on my hips, but that's just my personal preference.
