Women's Fit 2 Slim Ankle Chino Pants
I ordered my first pair because the sale price was unbeatable...I was so thrilled with them, I ordered another 4, in all available colours in my size! They are comfortable, fit just right in the waist and hip area and have a very flattering slim, but not too tight, leg. Personally, I love the fact that they do not have front pockets as this makes them look nice with no bulk. Maybe not as practical as having front pockets, but I have a purse for that!

Great fit, just a little small in the waist
I ordered these pants because they were such a great value on sale. I normally wear a size 12, and that is what I ordered. I was a little worried after reading the reviews about how the fit is small but they actually fit quite well. The only part that is a little weird is the waist itself seems a little small for the cut of the pants, I am going to keep them because they fit really well everywhere else and if I were to size up they would have been way too big.

I am so happy with these that I've ordered another pair in a different colour. The sizing is true-to-size for plus size. I'm between a 20 and 22, the 22 fit well. I'm petite in pants so tried the petite in these and they're perfect. The weight of the material is nice, they keep their shape. They're perfect for spring, wearing them with flats or sandals. Looks great paired with the terry striped tops from Lands End. Note: they don't have pockets. I kinda like that, there is no bulk.

Nice looking pants
Yes, these are nice looking pants. I bought the raisin color in the Landsend store tonight. The pants were on sale and my usual size 8P wasn't available and so I tried on a size 10P and they fit though were a bit tight. I know Landsend pants usually stretch out and so I bought the size the size 10P that I tried on..
I would recommend buying one size larger than your usual size because my usual size would have been way too small. I am between a 6P and an 8P and I wouldn't have been able to fit into a size smaller than the10P.

more modern fit
SIZING & FIT: I am 5'5", 130 lbs, 36" hip measurement and full thighs, and the 2 fit me well. It was tight, I could definitely not have a smaller size, but I want a slim cut and I know after a half hour of wear they will loosen up to be my ideal fit because they have 2% spandex. I would say they are tighter than what I expect from a traditional Women's size 2, and fit more like a Misses size 2, but I have ordered the slouch chino from LE Canvas, and those fit me in a 4, so they are not quite a Juniors fit. LE markets these as Fit 2, and I found the Fit 2 to be running a bit snugger than the Fit 1. I simultaneously ordered the ankle corduroys in Fit 1, and I feel more immediately comfortable in those as a size 2. These slim ankle chinos were oddly snug in the crotch and through the hip, and I usually only have problems with pants being snug in the thigh (there they were fine).
QUALITY: I found the quality on these to be appropriate. I bought them on sale, and I would have paid full price. I ordered them in bittersweet & raisin, and I am keeping the raisin. The bittersweet is a bit too orange. The fabric is not thick but it is not thin either. They would be fine in winter but probably most comfortable in Fall, and can be worn into Spring and even a cool Summer night.

Comfortable, fashionable chinos in a range of beautiful colours
I'm very pleased with these comfortable and fashionable pants. The sizing is a little small for someone like me who has excess weight around the middle. I take a regular size 14 in the ponte rail straight pants (another great LE product!), but size 16 in these chinos fits me well. I agree with a previous reviewer that the absence of pockets has a slimming effect. I bought this item in all of the sale colours and they are all beautiful. I was concerned that the red would be too bright when I ordered it, but it is a very attractive and versatile shade, with a slight hint of brown. It goes very well with ivory, black, navy, camel, mahogany and dark teal green.

I never write reviews but these pants deserve praise. I am plus size and I did go up one size since they are a slim fit and i knew they would be tight in the hips but a small belt fixed the somewhat larger waist. Otherwise I love these pants. The flat front, no waistband, no pockets is really the trick. I need to get rid of as much bulk as I can in the front. These lay flat without puffy pockets which so often give me problems. The ankle lenght is very flattering, shows off cute flats, pumps or sandals. The fabric is a nice crisp twill with just enough stretch. Very pleased, just may need to buy another pair...

These pants are exactly what I hoped for.

I purchased these pants in Umber. The fit is true to size and they are very comfortable. I'd highly recommend them. I simply love these pants!

I love these, but....
This have become my favorite casual pants with one problem; no front pockets! The fit is great, I like the colors (though I wish there was a black option...), but I hate not having front pockets. Lands End, fix this and I will loyally purchase these pants often.
