Women's Plus Size Fit 2 Corduroy Boot-cut Pants
I've been looking literally everywhere for cords this Fall. Found them! They are super soft and fit great. Love that I can get them tailored for my exact length I prefer. While I've noticed that most stores are cutting down on the quality of their corduroys this year (i.e. thin, papery material) THESE are extremely soft and a nice quality. I'm getting as many as I can! Thanks, Lands End!

"Oh my gosh, they fit! They actually fit!" are the words I kept repeating as I tried these pants on. I am a longtime Lands End shopper, but finding well-fitting pants online or in person has always been a challenge for me. I love that I could pick the inseam because as a curvy size 18 who is on the short side, most pants that fit my figure are too long. These pants also fit well in the waist and hips - no gaping waistband. I ordered these pants in two colors and will definitely consider more. Thanks LE!

Soft cords and tailored to fit
I think that it is great that you can order these in whatever length you want. No more having to get pants hemmed to fit. When I received these cords and tried them on they were perfect. I wish I could order all my pants as easy as this. These are so soft and wash very nicely. You cannot buy just one pair! I love Lands End. Keep up this great quality.

Stretch out too easily
I can only wear these once before washing... they stretch out and become too baggy. Adding some lycra would certainly help.

Just what I needed this winter!
With the cold weather this winter I wanted warmer pants and I couldn't find any corduroy pants in stores near me. These are perfect. I ordered two and I'm always wearing them since it has been so cold lately. I'm glad the LE site has details like item dimensions which makes it easier to get the right fit. Thank you!

Not impressed, unfortunately
I've been a Lands End customer for over a decade, and agree with some reviewers that the quality and sizing consistency has diminished in recent years. These pants are great when I first put them on… good structure and fit… and by the end of the day, they look and feel like loose, limp pajama pants that just hang off my hips and now drag on the floor… very unflattering (and frustrating). Also, the rise is pretty high for "fit 2" making the fit around my apple shaped middle awkward. I've kept them because I needed pants, and every morning I put them on, I hope that by the end of the day I'm still comfortable, but no… I look like I'm ready for bed. Disappointed.

Nice alternative to jeans
FIt nice, but shrunk a little. I ended up buying one size up after they shrunk.

I enjoy wearing the corduroy pants, they are very comfortable. I ordered the wrong size 22W to tight, re-ordered the right size had no problem with returning them. The fit is perfect.

Love these pants!
These cords are super comfy and very soft. They're a lighter-weight corduroy (in my opinion). I dress them up for work (on more casual days) and they're great for running errands, too. I've washed my black pair almost weekly for several months and they haven't faded. And I love fit 2. Works great for people with a little bit of a belly.

I was worried about buying these (Women's fit 2 corduroy boot cut pants) after reading a few of the earlier reviews on the thinness of the material. I'm glad I went ahead. They are not heavyweight, but they're perfectly suited for fall weather--even *winter* weather here in Florida, when layered with a pair of silk thermals.
I was also concerned that the burgundy color might fade. However, I've washed them twice now, with no special precautions, and they look good as new. The burgundy was not my first color choice (the French Walnut was already unavailable by the time I ordered), but it is a nice, rich, fallish color, and I like it.
Finally, the spandex was an issue because I thought the pants might stretch out at the knees and in the seat and waist area. (Droopy diaper syndrome, anyone?) They did not. In addition, the fit was true to the chart, and the size I ordered fit perfectly. Well, as perfectly as my not-so-perfect figure allows.
I very much like fit 2. It falls just below the waist, and looks fashionable, but doesn't make it seem like I'm trying to be a teenager again (please, not again, ever!)
I also like the boot cut. It could be narrower, but still works well with regular shoes.
Finally, I'm very pleased with the custom hemming, as I usually have a difficult time finding a 32" inseam in my size, and I very much dislike wearing "ankle pants" (what we used to call high-waters). I want my pants to reach my shoes, especially when it's cool outside!
My only disappointment is that it appears these pants are going to be out of stock very soon. In fact, by the time I got my catalog, the selection was very limited. Based on past experience with LE, once an item is gone, it is GONE, and the next iteration, if there even is one, is nowhere near the same. That's a major drawback to shopping LE, in my opinion. Seems like it would be good marketing sense to offer MORE of something that sells so well. Or maybe it's brilliant marketing, because knowing something will be gone forever makes people rush to buy if they spot something they like. Either way, I don't like this practice.
The pants, however, I do like, very much.
