Rated 3 out of 5 by Bree140 Size 12 corduroys are smaller than size 12 twills
A word to the wise: if you already own a pair of Bayside twill comfort waist pants and like the way they fit, don't assume you'll take the same size in Bayside corduroy comfort waist pants. I recently bought a pair of Bayside corduroy comfort waist, original fit pants in a size 12, and had to return them because they were too small. I had assumed size 12 would fit me because, about two months earlier, I had bought a pair of Bayside twill comfort waist, original fit pants in size 12, and they fit perfectly (and they still do, so the issue isn't that my body has changed since I bought the twill pants). I'm mystified as to why size 12 Bayside corduroy comfort waist, original fit pants don't fit the same way as size 12 Bayside twill comfort waist, original fit pants. I clicked through to the "size chart" for both items, and the size charts are identical, so the fit should be identical -- but it isn't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Glissando Love The Comfort Waist!
So far I have ordered three pairs of these comfort waist pants. The comfort waist is almost hidden and you still look trim. The best part is that one word: Comfort. When I am shopping for LL Bean pants for any season I look for that one term--Comfort Waist. You can wear them for hours and they are still comfortable and look great. The corduroy fabric is soft and will be warm as we go into cooler weather. The fabric also wears well. They wash beautifully and will need little if any pressing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Glissando Perfect Fit....Can't Wait for Fall
I tried these on as soon as they arrived and they are perfect! The fabric is soft and gives just enough as you move. The best part is the comfort waist. No bulk and you are comfortable and still look trim. I have had LL Bean cords in the past and they are the best. They wear well and are a breeze to launder. Thanks LL Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marcy2 Great pair of cords
Stretch Bayside Corduroys comfort waist with original fit are very comfortable and fit my straight figure like a glove. Allow for some length shrinkage with washing. I like the width of the leg opening which stays down over my boots.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Aylasews1 Cordoroy pants
These pants fit beautifully until they are washed and dried, even at a low temperature. I lost two inches in length after laundering. Fortunately, I am a seamstress and will lengthen the pants. They will, however, look like they have been lengthened. This could have been avoided if the manufacture had prewashed the fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kadingo Terrific fit, wonderful pants, however...
I bought these a while back and have been so pleased with my purchase. I wear a size 18 tall which is a 34" inseam and these fit beautifully and are extremely comfortable, a big plus for me. I would recommend them to anyone.
However, I'm very sad that comparable pants in a lighter weight are not available in tall, only medium tall. I don't understand this, and will have to shop elsewhere for my warmer weather pants. If the winter length was available in comparable lighter weight pants I would be buying several more pairs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DivineMissM Mom Pants.
Unlike some other reviewers who found the pants too tight, the two pair I received were huge. I ordered the same size that I wear in other LL Bean items, and was swimming in these. The legs were very wide, which I didn't mind, but the seat was baggy and saggy. The worst part was the rise -- so long that the waist was practically under my armpits.
I LOVED the softness of the fabric and the roomy pockets (small pockets are a deal breaker for me) ... hate to send them back, but given the size issues, I have to return them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JAMAZ Love These Cords!!
I bought 2 pair of these Stretch Corderoy Ladie's pants and am very satisfied with them. They are soft, nice looking, fit perfectly, and are very comfortable, so much so that I ordered 2 more pairs! I highly recommend these cords to everyone. I'm 75 years old and still working, have had nice comments on my new cords!

Rated 1 out of 5 by CJShopper "tapered leg" means skinny leg these days
The styling of these pants has changed, such that the legs are way skinnier than they used to be...so skinny, in fact, even on a size 20W, that I couldn't wear them. Pretty dumb, I think, to make size 20w pants with a leg that's ridiculously skinny.....we large people have large legs, too!
Hate this so called 'modern' slimming down of clothing....we all begin to look like we're wearing our younger sister's clothing.
Please bring styling back to reality....we're BIG, we Americans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nrat Buy one size up from last year
Great fitting pants, but one size smaller than what i had last year and the year before last. For some reason LLBean has decided to dress the skinny types or has their sizing all wrong. Further, winter hasnt started yet and these are already out of stock. Are you kidding me!
