Rated 3 out of 5 by eriksmom58 Not sweats
These are a good weight of cotton jersey but they are not sweats at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Minkacat Please get rid of labels sewn into waistband
These pants are soooo comfortable, except for one thing - the labels sewn into the back of the waistband irritate my skin something awful. I thought they'd soften up with a couple washings, but they're just as scratchy as when they were new. The only way I can wear these pants comfortably is to tuck in the shirt, and that's not how I usually wear sweats. I'd buy more of these pants if they had a stamped label. LL Bean, you've done away with fabric labels in other items, notably the pima cotton shirts - why not do the same with these pants? (Would also like to say these pants wash and dry without noticeable shrinkage when washed in cold water and dried on low. Great!!)

Rated 1 out of 5 by MaryKathryn66 Poor fit
I ordered a pair in petite medium but it was huge on me. The pants are droopy, misshaped and unflattering. The photos and description are misleading.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Zekerake So comfy, I want to wear them all the time
I was a little surprised when I opened the bag at the fabric, it was thinner than I was expecting, but it's very soft and comfortable. I've found that traditional weight sweat pants can become to warm in the house and these are perfect for indoor temps. They are comfy and a nice fit, not too tight in the hips (as most sweats are on me). I ordered an XL and I think a L would have fit better, but it's nice to have a little extra room. The drawstring keeps the waist in place without binding. I'm always impressed with LL Bean construction, they look like they are built to last.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Whitefire Way Bigger Than Described
I gave 4 stars because I like the way they look and they are soft and comfortable. But beware; the Regular length is not 30 1/2 like they say. 30 1/2 is perfect for me in pants and these drag the ground. I don't have a tape to measure right now, but I cuffed them up with double rolls but that doesn't really stay put for long with sweats. If I were planning on leaving the house in them, I would send them back but since they are for staying home and they are out of petite anyway, I'm keeping them. Also, I wear a size 4 and 6 in all my pants, so I got size small and they are huge. These pants are overall way too big for my 5'4" 110 pound body so be aware. I am hoping to shrink them in hot water and the dryer so that might help a little.

Rated 5 out of 5 by harpergirl Perfect for my needs
I really like this version. I had an older version of these sweats, but they were terrible, I hated wearing them, so I eventually gave them away.
Anyway, this fabric, although much lighter in weight than I expected, is extremely soft and stretchy. It is kind of like really loose yoga pants. They are SO comfortable, and basically a three-season sweatpant. I wear them just around the house, and love to be comfortable, so I just ordered a duplicate pair.
Caution...you will want to stay in these all day!
By the way, I do NOT like the really loose legs...flared at the bottom...they would be SO much nicer as "straight legs." But still, they get five stars from me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lani1 So comfortable
I love these sweats,I wish the petite came in more colors. I am 5 foot 3, 145 lbs and the medium petite fits me well. They have a bit of a flair at the bottom, I don't think I would cal them straight leg. Pockets are handy. They are perfect for lounging around the house or exercise. The wide waist band is nice too if you have a bit of a belly which I do.

Rated 3 out of 5 by willathome waist is huge
Very soft material ,well made but the waist is so large and I bought an x small. In other pants I am a small ( sometimes an X small). The drawstring helps to keep them up but binds around the waist and the waist looks bunchy. The legs are pretty wide and after sitting for a short time the rear end bags . I love the color, oatmeal heather, and the material, although not a warm pant, material is kind of thin. May have to return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PrincessJulia Heavenly Comfort
These pants arrived today. I ordered petite as I am 5 foot 3. They are a little long in bare feet, but with shoes, they are perfect. They are the softest pants and the most comfortable. I am not going to put them in the dryer as the fit perfectly now and I don't want them to shrink it. I need comfort due to some medical issues and these fit the bill. I hope they make some more colors in petite. I would love to see a dark brown and black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lani1 Love em!
Got these pants today in the blue petite medium. I am almost 5 foot 3,155 lbs and apple shape. They fit me great from waist to ankle. A little fitted in the hip and thigh which is great for me because I am small there and have a belly,hence the elastic waist. They are warm and soft. To me they are something I would work out in probably in colder weather. I do not think they look bell bottom as one reviewer said. I only have one complaint: PLEASE LL BEAN CARRY MORE PETITE SIZES IN YOUR STORES!
