Rated 5 out of 5 by dellwooddaisy soft and comfortable
Bought these just before surgery on my leg. Unlike my jeans or stretch pants, these pants didn't rub on the bandage or feel tight on my legs. It's been almost 2 months now of regular wear and washing and the pants are still soft and holding up well. Love the pockets which are deep enough for my phone and other necessary items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by frenchteacher super soft and comfy
I LOVE these pants. I have four pairs and wear them casually to the grocery store, yoga, walking, or just around the house. I like the slight flare to the legs. They do not look like athletic/gym sweatpants. Plus, they have roomy pockets to hold my phone, keys, etc. My newest pair is the olive; they look great with the coral jacket that was offered at the sale price. I wish the pants were available in BLACK. I would order multiple pairs. Please consider offering black; you can't have too many black pants.

Rated 1 out of 5 by FairPoint Terrible Cut for Curvy Women
I bought these in the plus size, which is probably the main problem. Bean, you cannot take something that is cut for a boyish size 2, and just scale it up to the plus sizes.
The waist is so wide that the pants would just fall off without the drawstring. But the wide, loose elastic makes it impossible to pull the drawstring tight enough. With the very high rise, the crotch falls halfway to my knees, and then the legs are too long as well.
Although it felt thin at first, the fabric is actually very nice -- soft and warmer than it looked. And the matching jacket is excellent, which makes the fail on the pants so annoying. I will probably cut off the existing elastic and sew in my own. There is plenty of room for it!

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!
