Women's Fit 2 Portico Side-zip Indigo Ankle Pants
I love these pants!
I'm so totally over the really low jeans. They actually give me a spare tire and are so uncomfortable. I saw these online and ordered an 8 and a 10. Eight is my regular size right now, as I gained 5 lbs this summer. The 8 fit fine, but I kept the 10 too. There wasn't that much difference, but there is a little bit more room in case of shrinkage. I did wash the 8's once and they came out fine and didn't shrink. I am also sick of the zipper on the front of jeans sticking out and ruining the look of my tops. I love the clean lines of these pants. I wore them all day today and there was no bagging. They are long enough on me (I'm 5'3"), that I can wear them with flats or heels. Please bring these in off white, black and other colors. Make them exactly the same, please. They are so cute and really a great alternative "grown up" jean look for women who are sick of the teen styles that swamp the retail establishments. I consider myself stylish, but also like sophistication rather than just emulating teenage girl styles. For reference - I am small but curvy and I think these do look good on curvy figures.

SOOOOOO CUTE and COMFORTABLE!
I usually wear a size 8 in pants, but I sized up, with a 10, for denim, and I'm glad I did. The fit was perfect! The absence of buttons and pockets, plus the dark color are very slimming. The bit of stretch makes them so comfortable. They can be casual or dressy, depending on your shoes and accessories. Very versatile!

Didn't work for me....
The web site pics don't show the crease running down the center of the legs. When I put the pants on it looked like they had been ironed. I don't like the look of creased jeans...seems a little strange to me. I wasn't sure if it would come out in the wash. They looked OK from the front but without regular back pockets these gave my butt the dreaded "Mom jean" look ....I'd have to wear a long shirt with them to feel comfortable. I returned them and bought Fit 1 slim ankle instead...much better if you are looking for more of a "jeans" look than "pants".

Sizing all wrong, Poorly placed fastener
After double and triple checking my measurements against both the size charts AND the item dimensions, I ordered both the 16P and 18P. They were so large that they slipped right up over my hips with the zipper and fastener closed. They seemed promising, however, so I returned them and got both 12P and 14P. That is when I discovered that I could not manage the fastener! It is placed on the left side and I cannot use my (perfectly functional) left hand well enough to manipulate it with just that hand. My right hand simply won't reach far enough around my body to fasten the pants. I will admit to being a bit overweight (but not obese) and rather large-breasted (but not huge). (My measurements are 44" - 38" - 38;" I am 5'3" and weigh 150.) The pants would not have been a good fit, regardless - too big through hips and thighs.

Well Made Just Not for Curvy Figures or Athletic Builds
The material is a light weight denim, perfect for spring and summer. Love the style with the side zip. Yet, I have an athletic build with small waist, curvy hips and well defined calves. While I typically can wear an LE Fit 2, these did not work for me at all. Tight around the calves, tight through the hips and huge at my waist. For reference purposes, I have a 26 inch waist, with a 37 1/2 in hip and weigh 125 lbs. Thankful that LE has a free shipping for jean returns promo.

Stylish- but size up!
I love these pants! Very stylish and the side zip is great. I do have to exchange for a larger size. The indigo does not fit true to size, as the same pants in black fit. Otherwise a great pair of pants!

I am uncomfortable wearing leggings; this is the next best thing these pants stay fitted do not sag in the rear and look great with heels or flats.

Great Looking Pants
I am 4'11, 146 lbs., and usually wear medium in Land's End. It depends on the style of the pants what size I need, a 10P or 12P. The 10P were tight so I returned them and ordered 12P. They fit perfectly. I've washed them once and they came out of the washer and dryer ready to wear again. Good quality.
