Rated 5 out of 5 by ladyveteran Timeless Style
This is just the pant I was looking for. Something a little dressier that I could go out to dinner in. The quality of fabric is wonderful and looks great straight out of the dryer. The workmanship is great and I love the hidden elastic in the waistband. I ordered the black coffee color and was not disappointed. I'll probably order this pant in a different color for a second pair. You won't be disappointed. Sizing was spot on.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Quilter60 Not a good fit.
Like other reviewers, I thought these would be great with the hidden elastic. However, they just don't fit right, rise is to low in the back. They keep sliding down and are very uncomfortable. Need to bring back your original style they were the best. Maybe make these in the classic fit with no elastic.

I was drawn to these pants because of the hidden elastic (I'd rather have NONE but they're hard to find in women's sizes), at least it wasn't the usual bubble tush backside. But, as in some other comments, even just walking around made the pants slide down in back, and practically fall off. Loved the fabric, the basic look is good, legs a bit wide but doable. That waist, just not good, and the back side of the pants is not long enough to keep the pants up. Why can't anyone make regular pants that don't have elastic or spandex or hip hugging waists? Beans used to have a style called classic chinos, the fabric was perfect, not twill, very soft, it moved nicely when you walked, and it came without elastic in the waist! Please, if you're listening, LLBean clothing buyers, please bring those back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 1FLHippy Should Have Read Reviews First
Maybe if I had a flat booty like the model in the picture, these would be ok. I wear an 18 and ordered my size, they fit perfectly, except the back is a good inch and a half lower than the front. If I was standing all day, this might be ok, but there's no way to sit in these. Gave them 2 stars because from the front, they look fantastic, the comfort waist was great, the hip and thigh wasn't too tight or too loose, they would be perfect if the waist was higher in the back. The pockets didn't stick out as others have mentioned and the flat front was extremely flattering. I'm 5'6 and I got regular length and they were perfect. I loved everything about these except the low waist in the back. So, back they go.

These pants are by far the highest quality and most comfortable pants I have found for work. Having the elastic in the waist makes bending much easier and the length is perfect. I am 5'8" with long legs and do not like anything tight around my hips, so I buy a size 8 instead of a 6. Great pants and I highly recommend them.

After trying on just about every pair of pants on earth, I have found pants that fit and flatter. These aren't high-end or low-end -- they are just sensible, comfortable, WASHABLE pants with pockets (Hello, cell phone! You have a home!) and will be worn multiple times per week. The navy works with navy garments I already own. The adjustable waist means I can have pants that fit in the hips AND in the waist. Now who do I have to bribe to get these made in gray -- a light shade and a dark shade, please. (I'll bake you a pie!)

Rated 3 out of 5 by Thebearsmith I Like Them, But . . .
I really like the wrinkle-free fabric, but the legs are baggy. The description says they are slim through the hips, and I guess they are, but the legs should be a lot slimmer, not just "straight." My biggest disappointment is that the women's sizes don't come in the shorter length. I need a 28" and don't enjoy hemming -- LLBean, please note -- all women of a certain size aren't tall! I'm 5'6" and the pants are way too long.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Doosenbury I wish I'd read the reviews first!
Well, I knew I'd have to hem these pants (I'm short), so that didn't bother me. What did and still does bother me is the fact that these pants look awful! I have to wear my top out over them! It's the adjusting waistband! It makes the pockets stick out in front, and when you sit down the waistband dips in the back! Then, when you stand and start walking, you have to hitch up the pants to keep from walking on the back of the lower pant leg! If I hadn't already hemmed the dang things I would send them back! It seems I'm not the only one that feels that way either! Too bad I didn't read all of the reviews before I ordered. I certainly wouldn't have ordered these!

Back is lower when sitting. Pockets are stretched and donot lay flat. Too small from the waist to the crotch - not long enough.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MonaP Very poor fit
I have lots of LL Bean pants and always wear the same size. My usual size in these pants was much too small as was the next size up! I am very disappointed and they're going back to the store.
