Nice changes from my last pair of these comfy cords! First, size 10P fits well, though my own measurements haven't altered since I bought the previous pair in size 12P four years ago! I suspect this is 'fashion creep', since I had to return a different style in size 12 last year because they were too large. Best of all, these good-sized pockets can hold a wallet without ejecting it when I sit or squat! I'm an active senior 5'1" and 123 lbs. and the fit is just right.

I loved the first pair of Stretch Bayside Corduroys, Classic Fit Straight-Leg Plain-Front Comfort Waist that I purchased several years ago and decided to buy another pair. The shipping was fast and arrived several days before I expected them too. Because I had chosen the size and style identical to my last pair I never tried them on and simply threw them in the washer. The first pair fit perfectly, the length was perfect, the waist and hips fit right, I was so pleased.
The pair that arrived this week are too big. They are just a bit too long which will make hemming them a trial, the overall fit is bulky and larger and possibly one size down might have been better. The size tags are identical. I have to say this is the first time in my several decades of shopping L.L. Bean that I have not been 100% satisfied. Now on the positive side the corduroy is an excellent quality and the seams and finish are very well done.
I also ordered the Premium Washable Linen Tunic and it is gorgeous. Highly recommended for women with an ample sized chest and for anyone who needs a generous span between the shoulders. I can see this shirt becoming a favorite.

Received two pair one in black the other in blue both were way too wide at pant leg bottom 20" around had to have them altered to 15' around and then tapered up the leg so the description of them was wrong, otherwise good quality.

Love these pants. I have two pair and just ordered another color. The most comfortable pants I have ever owned. My only complaint is that I had to lower the hem on them. I am 5'8". I will willingly do that to have these pants. They are nice and warm without being bulky. Love, love, love these pants.

i first bought a pair of the corduroy classic-fit, straight-leg, plain-front, comfort waist pants (whoo! that's a mouthful) a year ago when they were on sale. i liked them so much i bought a second pair.
these pants are a perfect fit. i am surprised by the reviewers who speak of the pants as 'huge' and 'way too big'. the comfort waist keeps the pants comfortably snug around the waist. the seat and hips are nicely cut for a smooth fit -- not too tight and certainly not baggy.
it is often difficult for me to find pants of the right length and these are just right. i am 5' 9" tall and weigh 150 pounds and ordered the size 10 medium tall.
the corduroy is oh so soft and the fabric is still lovely after dozens of washings.
these are great pants and i just might order yet another pair!

Rated 1 out of 5 by msnichols Buttons on Wrong Side- like a guy's pants! Ugly.
I love corduroy pants, but not these! First of all the button and button hole are one the wrong sides. It is like a man's pants. Disturbing. Every time you unbutton and unzip it feels wrong. And the HUGE elastic band reminds me of little kid pants. I could return them- cost me about 7 dollars and 5 dollars in gas. No thanks. In the trash they go. Don't get them!!!!!!

corduroy pants in such a rich rasberry colour that two other women of my family wished to have the same and got them; and the streching comfort waist is taking all bad conscience away after a good French meal!

Rated 2 out of 5 by grannyhiker Do these pants make me look fat? YES!
The catalog description of these pants sounded perfect and I had bought the same style in another pair of pants. What could go wrong?
Well, I found them to be too large in the waist and there was so much extra material bunched up in the hips and thighs that they were extremely unflattering. I tried to like them, but no luck. I'm returning them and hoping that next year's batch of corduroy pants fit better.
Please Bean: Fix the problems you have with sizing. I would say it's the most common complaint in your reviews. I want to know that when I order my size in one pair of pants, it's going to be the same size in another pair.
I gave this order two stars not for the pants, but for your service and because I really like your products.....when they fit!
