Women's Plus Size Fit 2 Ponté Demi-Boot Pants
Amazing fit but way too long
Love these pants!!!! But I am 5'8" and even wearing heels, I need to get these pants hemmed up 2". They are crazy long! However since I purchased them on sale, it makes sense to go ahead and have them hemmed.

These are the most comfortable pants I have purchased from LE, or anywhere else! They are long- but I am 6' tall, with a 34" inseam, so they are perfect for me. The fabric is a bit heavy, but they wash well without wrinkles. They fit well, and I wear them for work.

A bit too much like sweatpants
Very comfortable, but they are doing something weird at the pockets. I was hoping to wear them to work, but they're a bit too casual. Unfortunately, they're not quite what I would wear on the weekend!

The quality of Lands End pants had been very disappointing. The buttons don't stay on, the waist sits way too low on all of their cuts. Especially plus size. We aren't all built the same. These should match the jackets in tailor quality. You also used to be able to order the right length. These are way too long, and I'm 5'9".
The fabric on these are very heavy and definitely suited for winter. But I need them altered or returned. The reason I've always ordered from Lands End was the time savings. It's getting to be too much work.

Long enough for tall girls!
I bought three pairs of these, black, navy, and gray. I was concerned about the length because they were not listed as stalls, but based on the reviews I went for it (I'm 5'9). They feel and look wonderful. The cut and colors are great. They are actually too long so I'm now drying them with high heat just to get them to shrink up a bit. If not, I'll have to have them hemmed. The only problem I've got is with the navy and gray color. It almost looks a little bit like nice sweatpants. If you wear your shirts tucked in, and with a nice heeled shoe, I don't think it would be a problem. If you are expected to be in a super dressy environment though it might not look the way you expect. All in all though, I decided to keep all 3 pairs because as a plus sized tall girl, I don't really have many options and these are good enough!

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!
Exactly what I've been looking for! Super comfortable. Great quality! Very flattering and long enough for someone who is 5' 10" and wears heals!!!

I ordered a size down and they fit perfectly. Not too long (I am 5'8"). Very comfortable, don't show wrinkles and dressy enough for my job. I'm planning to travel to Europe and have ordered more for traveling. One of Lands End's best pants I think. Better than "Starfish".

Nice fabric; Good drape.
I normally wear a size 18, and these ran a little bit large. I love the drape of the fabric! It is thick enough that is does a good job of hiding "bumps and lumps". No problems with static electricity, like I seem to have in some pants. 34" seems like a long length, but it's not when you are wearing 2" heels. (I'm 5'7".) The only thing I don't like is the wide waistband. It looks like it would take a belt that's 21/2" thick! (I normally don't wear things tucked in, so it doesn't really matter to me.) Other than that, these pants are great! They wash and dry well, too.

Comfortable, great pants for the office
I like the pants, bought in two colors. They are super comfortable and can be dressed up or casual. My only complaint is who has legs this long? I'm 5'8" and with 4 inch heels they were still too long. Don't understand why you couldn't select length as in many other LE pants.

great pant, after hemming--37" inseam
These are great pants but as other reviewers have noted they are really long. When I hemmed mine I measured the inseam and it was 37 inches (20W). I lopped off fully the existing hem and turned up another 1 1/2 inch hem and they were a nice 32 inch inseam. Not a big deal to me since I sew. They hemmed much better than I thought they would. No puckers or difficult stitches. The fabric is thick enough to hang well. They are not classic trousers in that they have a tapered leg at the thigh and then flair out a bit to a full (not boot cut) leg. I wear them with dress sweaters for work but they look less good with a jacket for a formal, conservative suit look. They are just too shapely. I like the shape they give though. On sale they are an excellent buy. At full retail I would not have thought them a bad buy.
