Women's Starfish Cotton Spandex Terry Pants
Perfect for wearing around the house or running to the store.
I hope the fact that you have only one size and one colour left doesn't mean you are discontinuing them!

purchased these pants as cozy around the house pants that I could also take kids to school in the morning and not look like I just rolled out of bed. I am 5'3" 120lb I really should have ordered a petite xs but I got the regular small they are pretty bagg and based on the size chart I feel they are a little larger then I anticipated. But Im really happy with them. Ive washed them and dryed them they held up really well no shrinking (which I secretly hoped for as they are super long on me but oh well that's why I have a sewing machine). all around great pant. They are a step up from sweat pants but they are still a "yoga pant" style so I wouldn't wear these for any functions like work or dinners out.

Very nice pants, but with a few reservations
Mixed feelings about these pants. Yes, they do fit big ... however bear in mind they are supposed to be relaxed-fitting pants, a step up from pjs. So bearing that in mind, they are exactly as described. The waist is loose and comfy. Even though they're really too loose at the waist (I know this because I have a wide waist and they are loose even on me!), you can use the drawcord to adjust the fit. For me, what is more of a problem is the French terry. Yes, it is soft and comfortable, warm but not heavy like sweats, and yes you can dress it up or down. However, it is a much lighter-weight fabric than the regular Starfish pants. NOT cheap-feeling as some reviewers have said, but they are not as good at concealing lumpy bits - they do not drape quite as nicely - so I feel self-conscious about my rear end when I wear them. On the plus side, they have side pockets, which the regular Starfish pants do not have, and I have to have pockets! (I have two little kids and must have lip balm, tissues and a place for keys etc on me at all times!) Bottom line is that even though they are a bit baggy and not as flattering as they could be, I actually wear mine more often than my regular Starfish pants just because they are comfy and have pockets. So definitely have gotten my money's worth, but don't think I would buy again. Oh, and it would be great if they were offered with different inseams. I had to have mine altered, which is a pain.

Comfy, good quality sweats!
As a Stay at home mom of 3 babies I live in yoga pants, sweat pants and such. I actually wear through them quickly with the amount of washing I have to do wearing them around small children. These pants are quality. They have a decent weight to them, they aren't super thin like cheaper versions. The have a good drawstring, but the elastic is also decent so you don't necessarily need to tie it up, unless you're jogging in them. They are so comfortable I don't want to wear anything else... more comfy than pj's! They are soft and flexible. Definitely my go-to pants for day to day with babies!

Great Pants, but Size Down!!
I really like these pants because they are so comfortable and they wash really well. Now...having said that...I read some of the reviews before I purchased these pants and sized down to a medium. They fit great IF you like loose, comfy clothing. I am in my 60s and I treasure comfort above all else. The one mistake I made was to order them in a regular size instead of a Petite. They run a bit long and they relax to even a bit longer...BUT if you're looking for comfort, easy care, and a very nice pair of pants that can take you to any casual destination, these pants will do it for you.

Very Baggy and big
I found these pants to fit quite large. I ordered a petite XS and was surprised by how big they are. I don't care for the extra wide legs. This is my first pair and I judged the leg width by the picture, but find them to be wider than they look in the pic. They did shrink up in length, which worked for me as I'm short. I sure wouldn't want to wear these out in the public, but they are comfy for relaxing around the house in the evening. I would put them in the "sweat" pant catagory.
I did keep them as I got them at a super clearance price and it's not worth paying return postage from Canada.

Stretches, shrinks in length
Very disappointed in these. They are very comfortable on, but I don't wear them out of the house. They get so baggy in the knees they're sloppy. In addition, they shrunk about 2" in length, so are now "high water pants". Length was perfect before washing and drying, according to directions. I had a pair of French Terry "sweatpants" once, with a little Spandex, that were great, did not stretch out at the knees at all, looked good enough to wear anywhere. Unfortunately, I literally wore them out! These are no replacement.

Good plus-size fit
My one beef with the Lands End reviews is that you can't sort them by fit, so I have titled this for plus-size women. Most of their current pants-styles seem to be made with paper-thin fabric, and cut so tight that people can see the color of your underwear ... :-)
This style is the exception - it is a good bet for plus-size women. The cut is not generous, but just big enough to accommodate those of us with a tummy and plus-size hips. The pockets are sufficiently generous and placed so you could actually keep a Kleenex in them without looking strangely deformed. The fabric is midweight - probably spring weight, so they hang well enough if you're not fussy. They have that slight bell-bottom cut that all the current Lands End styles have at the moment, so they seem to stretch at the bottom. See the photo of the french terry crops to see why this matters - it is most apparent there. But they are comfy for casual Fridays and weekends. Not too harsh and not too soft. The fabric is not the heavyweight, brushed french terry I am used to. But this seems to be the current Lands End gold standard </sigh>.

Mixed feelings -- too rough
I've never liked the cut of Land's End clothing, they always look frumpy on me. I needed a pair of "house" pants so I took a risk on these Starfish pants. I like the fit, and I like the pockets. These aren't something I'm going to run around town in but they're comfortable enough to sit and move in. They do fit a little big so if you're on the low size of the size range I would recommend going a size smaller. My black pair are too long. I didn't dry them the first time, but did the second and third and they are still too long. The fabric is very rough almost to the point of itchy. The fabric feels cheap and reminds of a cotton t-shirt I bought at Wal-Mart and threw away because I couldn't stand the way it felt.
Having said all of this, I did buy two more pair. The others are also itchy. My grey/brown (not sure what color to call them) are the right length and hoping they don't draw up any more. I haven't worn the navy blue pair yet. I'm disappointed with Land's End sheets and towels and now their clothing. I think they've gone down hill since Sears bought them and I think Sears is bringing to much K-Mart to Land's End.

Disappointing And Here's Why
Start with the good. I love how soft these pants are. They fit fine and the length is good. I don't yet know how they launder because I'm still deciding whether or not to keep them. If I do keep them I hope they aren't like the last pair of LE pants which shrunk after the first wash to the point they are too short. Here's the bad and why I might return them; the pockets are sewn on the outside and you can see the outline. It keeps them from being versatile enough to be worn in non-sweats situation. "French terry" is really what most of us know to be "sweats". So what I have are fancy, expensive sweats that I can't wear the way I intended, in casual situations and not like I'm on my way to the gym.
