Rated 5 out of 5 by writercook Finally!
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 4 out of 5 by KCbuyer Lint Magnet?
Good fabric and good fit, as always, but there is a problem with the finish. The slacks attract lint. Washed before wearing, and washed 2-3 times since, but I still have to go over them with tape before going out. Seems to be decreasing, though, as the finish wears off.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Imiril Not that impressed
These are a good style for work (where you dress casual but not jeans). The fabric is not thin like similar styles at other places. Fit OK through the waist and hips. Zipper is reversed from every other pair of pants I own. The pockets gap wide open when sitting, and they reach half way down my thigh (no exaggeration). The legs are way too wide. I'll wear them, because I really needed black pants, but I'm not impressed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JANET13 ILL Fitting Design
It is actually comfortable at the waist while you are standing. There is no give at all over the buttocks. When you bend at all, you end up with 'plumber's crack'. You have to constantly pull them up in back. I will wash these and return them to the store. Not a good design. I wear a 14 and I realize I am not thin. The waist has all of the elastic and fabric up front. It needs some elastic through the back, also. I always love my LL Bean clothing. There's a first for everything.

I felt like these pants were 2 sizes smaller than what they said. I could expect it being slightly tight if they cut their pants differently but I couldn't even get them near my waist.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SandySuzy I wish these pants fit!
I have tried size 16 and 18 in the original fit and the same in classic fit, 16 too small 18 too big and baggy. I am disappointed as I love the material and easy care nature of these pants. When I look at the sizing, I see that every size has 10 inches difference between the waist and hips.even in the plus size. I used to have an hourglass figure, but those times are unfortunately gone and now at age 63 I only have about five inches difference between my waist and hips. That explains why I can't get a fit. The Bayside shorts I also purchased are ok in an 18 as the extra material around the hips doesn't seem to look as bad as in the pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by salgal64 These pants fit me perfectly
I have a non-curvy body, and the pants are perfect for me. The pockets don't gap as they do for some people.
I do wish that the same style and cut came in a lighter weight fabric for warmer seasons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JD7374 POCKETS!!
I have finally found well made, wrinkle free cotton pants for women that have USABLE POCKETS!! It has always upset me that whenever I have bought casual pants, the pockets are useless. It is typical that you can barely put your hands into your pockets but not on these. I can feel confident that when I rise from a seat, nothing is going to fall out. The hidden waist is well made and not obvious to anyone. I like the fit of the classic fit because they do sit slightly lower than your natural waist and as you get older, you will appreciate this look more and more. These are extremely comfortable and look great. I am 5"7" tall and I buy the M/T length and they are long enough that they cover the tops of my athletic shoes. However if they had to be hemmed, it appears that it would be a fairly easy job. Great look. Easy care. Comfortable for long trips. Great buy!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MimiVT My favorite everyday pants
Love these pants and wear them for just about anything short of dressy affairs. The comfort waist is just that - comfortable with some give that does NOT look like puckered elastic. The waist is high enough for those of us who actually like our bellies covered! They come out of the clothes dryer ready to wear. They are great for travel as well. The comfort shorts are great for golf and other activities while looking sharp. I have a couple black pairs and the color is holding up well - no fading noticed . Great quality, great fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wildfushcia Not for Curvy Shapes
I'm 5'6", 115 lbs., 34" hips and 29" waist, and the size 4 is just right. I obviously don't have a curvy shape and the stretch in the comfort waist doesn't come into play. So, I have no bulging with the pockets. When I'd first ordered 2 pair and they were crammed in the mailbox, they came out wrinkle free and ready to wear. Wash and dry great--no wrinkles.
