Rated 4 out of 5 by CasualCY Cropped pant comfortable, sizing inconsistent
Ever since LL Bean discontinued its classic fit/curvy line I've been looking for a pant just as comfortable and consistent in sizing. This summer I tried original fit in a cropped pant -- only the pant in khaki fit, the heritage stone and black appeared to be cut somewhat differently and were too snug. Exchanged those for the same colors in classic fit but the waist sits slightly lower and was uncomfortable. I guess I should be satisfied I found at least one pant that was what I had come to expect from LL Bean.

I find the hidden waist to be very uncomfortable. There is something about it that makes me itch. I liked the other waist better. It also makes the pockets have an ugly fit.

Great fit and I love the hidden elastic waistband. I am 5' 81/2'' and the length is just right. I like that the pants have a little stretch to them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mainevillequilter Great cropped pants
The Bayside crops are comfortable to wear, don't seem to wrinkle very much during wearing, have nice deep pockets. They're a little long for my 5' height but easy enough to shorten. I ordered a second pair in another color after wearing the first pair several times.

Rated 1 out of 5 by pearl73 Discoloured the first wash
It fits perfectly, I love the fabric to the touch but I am so sad that I only wore the item for a few hours today and after I had two small juice drops on it, I decided to wash it immediately with the regular soap and the stains were almost gone and I forgot about that but then I decided to wash the pants by hand but the color started to get uneven, it seems as it has some yellow stains all over it and I did not use bleach or chlorine so I am confused what happened with the fabric, it doesn't look as a "new" product.This problem happened to the Heritage stone pant, I also bought the black one and I am afraid that the same could happen to my black pants when I wash them.I never had a complaint on a product but this time it is a little bit disappointing and I do not know if I should buy another one or just to forget about them.I love all the other items I have bought, the bean boots, etc., all of them, but with this particular item I am confused and sad because it is something I can't wear anymore because the fabric color looks uneven all over the pants and that has nothing to do with the juice drops that were removed specifically from the right leg.

Rated 5 out of 5 by praisetheLord comfortable and launders beautifully
I had previously ordered two pair size 10, my usual size. They were too big, but wore them anyway for 2-3 years, finally gave them away. April of this year, ordered two more pair, size 8, and am so happy with size and fit! Love the deep pockets. Fabric is soft and does not wrinkle at all. Really are "wash and wear", which is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Divinewine Deep pockets
I was looking for a pair of capris with a clean look and I think I found it. There is nothing better than NO-IRON anything, deep pockets and a slimming look. The only issue I have with the Classic Twill Capri is that the crotch billows a bit...but quite comfortable when sitting. I am 5' 8" and 170 lbs and tend to carry my fat particles in the middle. Waist fit fine in a size 14 and the rear and thighs were flattering. I am now ordering the pants in the Classic Fit to see if I have an all around winner.

Rated 2 out of 5 by mermlb Bring back the old comfort waist crops!!
I have tried to like these hidden comfort waist crops...I also have two pairs of the shorts. I am a classic pear shape and they just don't fit!! The pockets and crotch pull funny. I don't understand why the design had to be changed. Why not a choice between hidden comfort waist and regular comfort waist?
I have two pairs of the regular comfort waist pants. I purchased the same size in the crops but they don't fit and the difference is the hidden comfort waist. The pants BTW fit fine, no pocket/crotch pulling. If LLB can make the regular comfort waist in the pants then why can't the crops (AND shorts too!) be made????
These crops are going back!! Very frustrating. LLB used to be my go to spot for shorts, crops and pants that fit my curvy body. No longer! How sad!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JC1469 Well Made, Excellent Quality
I work at an animal shelter and needed pants for milder weather that look professional but can stand up to active wear.
The fabric is a bit heavier than expected but still fine and much lighter than jeans that are too hot for summer. I love the very deep pockets because I usually need to carry a lot of stuff with me on dog walks and these pockets are super handy.
My only mild objection is the waistband. I ordered a size 4 Petite and the waist is a good fit but the waistband feels stiff and slightly uncomfortable. Everything may soften up a bit after the first washing.
All in all this was an excellent purchase. More expensive than than the Big Box store pants I usually buy for dog walking but well worth it for the professional look and nice fit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by cinephileglobetrotte well made but not my style
I have a hard time rating these pants. They are very well made. I loved the fabric. I just didn't like the style of the waist. I felt like I was wearing maternity pants and I am definitely past that stage in my life. If I had a nice flat stomach I might have liked them. they would have been comfortable. But I don't and as a result the pockets kind of stuck out. I would rather have a bit of give in just the waistband.
