Women's Fit 2 Ponté Trousers
wears PERFECT, WASHES PERFECT!
I got these and immediately they fit SOOO comfy I fell in love, plus they look very professional, which was a huge plus. I was terrifed to wash and dry them because of the previous reviews, so the first 3 times I washed them and hung them to dry. But my hubby "helped out" with the laundry one day and put them in the dryer! I was scared to death to try them on. Well much to my glee - they fit PERFECTLY! Oh there are not enough words to describe how much I love these pants. Only problem with them was the clasps for the waist fell off within 2 wears. Other than that - they are perfect!

Like wearing sweats!
These pants are very comfortable. All day I felt like I was wearing my yoga pants but I looked professional. The fit and length was just right. The fabric draped nicely. I haven't washed these yet and hope they don't lose length. I have ordered a second pair!

Can't believe the comfort!
I actually spoke to someone at Land's End when I purchased these because I was worried about the reviews and shrinkage. She said to wash on cold and line dry. I haven't washed them yet so I can't speak to that in this review. However, when I tried them on, they were so unbelievably comfortable, it almost felt like I was wearing sweatpants. Amazing. I'm pretty certain they are the new staple in my wardrobe, and if you can catch sales, the prices are great. For reference, I'm 5'6" and ordered the regular; I will have to wear a bit of a heel with them because a flat would leave them dragging. They drape nicely though. Also, I generally wear a 10, leaning toward the occasional 8, and since the LE lady said they are very slightly stretchy when worn, I decided to get the 8 and that was the right choice.

Too short and fabric didn't drape nicely
I think I may have received petite pants that someone returned because the inseam for my pants was 28" instead of 29.5" (may have shrunken and returned) and the button/hooks were defective. The fabric, while very comfortable, had a lot of body so it really didn't drape very well. The cuff at the bottom was also weirdly sewn so that it wasn't smooth like trousers should be. In summary, even if the pants weren't too short, I still wouldn't recommend them because they looked more like sweatpants than trousers.

I have these in both black and the grey. Originally when I got the grey several months ago they were two inches shorter than the black so I returned them. I waited until a good sale and purchased another pair which fit beautifully. I'm giving them a four simply because the fit varied from one to another. Otherwise these are by far the most comfortable pants I have ever owned. Lands End please continue to keep these in stock..

Different color - different length! Plus, beware shrinkage.
I have two pairs of these, and I love, love, love the way they fit. The are seriously the most comfortable wear-to-work pants I have ever owned. BUT... the grey ones (lighter grey) are at least a full inch shorter than the black ones. WHY??!! I can only wear them with totally flat shoes because they are so short. I also had to return the first pair of black ones I ordered because they shrunk about two or even three inches in length after the first wash (done according to the instructions). I love the fit so much, I asked for a replacement pair, which I now wash in cold water and ONLY hang to dry (the dryer is what did it!). They have been fine ever since and have not shrunk more. Frustrating inconsistencies - but truly a beautiful fit and amazing comfort. FIX THE FABRIC AND I'LL BUY FIVE MORE PAIRS, LANDS END!!! :)

Could not even try these on!
I had read the reviews and was aware about the shrinkage. I had ordered a 4 petite (had tried the 4 regular on in the store, and it was at least an inch large in the waist, two in the hips, and excess of 5-6 inches in the length). Well, when I took these out of the package, they looked like kid sized! I measured the inseam and it was 27. The description for petites is an inseam of 29.5 inches. All aspects are equally small. I would describe the size as 0000 short. I'm not sure if the pair I received had already been "shrunk" or will shrink more after a washing. These would be nice if one can figure out the correct post washed size.

Loved these until...
Bought the ponte trousers at full price and loved them. Fit well, nice drape, comfortable for travel and no wrinkles! Had them cleaned at the dry cleaner once or twice without a problem; then washed them at home according to the instructions on label and now I have cropped pants!!! Yikes! Very Disappointed.

Nice but shrunk after one wash
This fit a bit tight at the start but stretched a bit. Washed according to the instructions and they shrank. Now they are way too short and too tight. Sigh. I wonder if I can return them.

Fit me perfectly and I'm tall (5'11"). Have been wearing them to work all day. Feel really wonderful. Wish they had a side seam pocket. Look very professional. Slight heaviness to fabric make them perfect for cooler/cold weather. I would buy again........but would fill my closet if they had a side pocket.
