Rated 2 out of 5 by bucklemyshoe13 Nix the Hidden Waist
While I can appreciate that some will enjoy the hidden waist added to the Bayside Twill line, I do not like it. Please return the original fit to this line of clothing with a plain waist.

Rated 1 out of 5 by TCUPrincess Bayside Cropped Pants
I have pretty much "lived" in my LLBean cropped pants for the past ten summers here in coastal Texas! But this newer version does not fit the same way. The problem seems to be in the way the pockets are sewn in.- no matter which size I bought (I bought a 6p and exchanged it for an 8p), they pulled so much in the pocket area that the pants didn't "hang" at all. Will wear my old crops until I find a replacement.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MountainLaurel Comfortable But Unflattering.
These cropped Baysides are very comfortable due to the hidden comfort waist. They look fine when I'm standing, but when I sit the pockets gape open and the white pocket lining shows. I have to wear tops that cover the pockets. I'm keeping them to wear around the house and grocery shopping, etc. because they feel good, but they do look tacky when I sit down. It would be nice if LLBean used pocket fabric in a color that matched the pants instead of white. Another complaint I have is that the stone color is more warm than cool, more on the yellow side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SUshopper finally figured this out
I have finally realized by comparing the labels on all my hidden comfort bottoms, that it is the original fit hidden comfort that I like and not the classic fit. I just realized a short time ago that the fit of some of the pants drove me crazy and others I really liked.
I never realized that they were not all the same. This cleared up a lot of confusion on my part. The classic fit pockets tend to gap a bit because they are slightly fitted in the hips and thighs while the original are relaxed. Since I am "curvier", the original fit is way better. I can't believe it has taken me this long to figure this out.

Rated 2 out of 5 by flaveglady Please bring back the comfort waist crops
The fit on these crops is not designed for those of us with a pear shape. The comfort waist gaps when you sit, which is unattractive and it's too tight across the seat. Please bring back the comfort waist crop. More colors would be great too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Glissando Nice All The Way Around
The comfort waist feature is important when I am ordering pants. It is especially important to me in the warmer months. In addition, the overall fit is what I want in either a casual or dress pant and these fit the bill perfectly. The fabric is wrinkle free and could have been work right out of the delivery package. I am very pleased and highly recommend these. Another good job from LL Bean!

Rated 1 out of 5 by flaveglady Why change a good thing
The hidden waist defeats the purpose of adding elastic to these capris. It creates a gap when you sit down or do other movements that makes the waist stretch.
PLEASE go back to the hidden waist capri. That was a wonderful design for those of us with a slimmer waist than hips

Rated 2 out of 5 by northbass not for me
The pants were cute enough until I put them on...found the pockets bulged terribly on my apple shaped figure. I will be sending them back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Abookworm2 Comfortable, classic style
I love these cropped pants. Ordered two sizes and ended up keeping the larger size. Pockets gapped considerably on the smaller pair, but were better (still gapped some) on the larger pair. Very comfortable. Fit nice in the hip and the rise. A little longer than I would like.

Rated 1 out of 5 by AZoldlady Don't like them!
I do not like these pants at all. Waist is too tight and legs are way too loose. They are not comfortable to wear for very long at all. I have 2 pair of them and I always feel like I'm wearing a big bag around both thighs. The fabric is great but the cut is terrible! I've had these quite a while but have only worn them 3 or 4 times.
