Women's Knit Dressing Pants
Cross between dress pant and sweats
I am 5'3" and a size 12. I bought a Medium and fit close to my belly but are not tight. Plenty of room in the thighs. They are very comfortable and I appreciate the wide, flat waistband. Can wear with sneakers, flats, or sandals. Not a fan of the pockets. Pockets on the sport knit are fine but feel too casual and poofy for what I want in this pant - a soft alternative to dress pants for work.

I love them but mine are pilling.
I have had 2 pair now for 2 months an wear them to work and at home. I wear them with a sweater on casual days. I love the pockets, the length ( I am 5'5") and the waistband. The only problem I am having is after about 6 washing and drying they are beginning to pill. I wash them after each wear as they stretch out a bit and are loose to begin the day. I was going to buy a smaller pair but after reading other reviews, it sounds like then I may have a problem with the pockets or waistband. So I will keep them the way they are.

Suitable for casual wear
Comfortable pants for lounge wear, but too loose for office.

Good for around the house
These pants are fine around the house or for a quick run to the grocery store, but I would not wear them anywhere else as they are too casual. Very comfortable and wash well.

Very soft and comfortable.
I love these pants. My only complaint is that having pockets doesn't make them as dressy and smooth as they could be.

I love these pants!
I have worn most of the LE pant styles and these are my favorite! I am a plus size and these pants have enough room and do not stretch out like the sport knit pants. I ordered them in navy and came back to order more in black but see they only have a light blue. The length is perfect too. (I am 5'4") I wear these to work but I could see if they might be too casual for some offices. Please restock these pants and maybe bring in a charcoal color also.

Love these pants
I purchased both the knit dressing pants and the sport knit pants with the purpose of using them for weekend wear and exercise. I love the knit dressing pants much more than the sport knit pants. The wide waistband is nice. The waist sits at the right place on my body. The material is thicker and nicer than the sport knit pants. I wear a plus size and they are sized generously and the length is just right. I had the pants for about 2 months and have washed them several times. They wash nice and still look great. I just looked at purchasing another 1 or 2 pair of the knit dressing pants and they are limited to the light blue - so I will wait and hopefully the darker colors will be back in stock. I love these for casual wear but I would not wear them to work in a professional workplace.

Better fit than sport knit pants
I have been wearing the sport knit pants for years and they just never fit. I am 5'4" and overweight. The petite were too short and the regular's waist came up to my bra. These fit like a dream. They are my everyday pants for spring, summer and fall in my casual office. The waist never slips down and I never have to pull them back up. I think the thicker waistband really helps. I came here to buy more of the black in 3x but they are gone. I hope LE restocks these because they are the best-fitting pants I have worn in 15 years.

Great pants. Comfy.
Love these pants. They fit my curvy shape without looking too tight.

I have been searching for knit pants that do not cling and that sit at the waist. These pants are perfect!! I like to dress modestly and the 9 to 5 knit pants make that possible. The waist sits close to the belly button and does not reveal anything when you stoop or bend. The wide waist band helps the pants to stay in place and flatter the figure. These pants can be worn to work or for relaxing on the weekend. I first purchased black and liked them so much that I got them in blue. I wish they came in grey, too.
If you are considering purchasing the 9 to 5 knit pants here is a good comparison for you. I had purchased the Starfish Refined Stretch Pant and the Starfish Knit Jean, both of which were too revealing to be modest. The only way I would or could wear either of those pants is if I wore a top that covered my butt. With the 9 to 5 knit pants I don't have that problem.
I am 5'4" and wear between a 4 and 6 depending on clothing manufacturer. I purchased the 9 to 5 knit pant in small and they fit perfect. The other nice feature is that they are a blend and are so soft. I notoriously shrink clothes so I wash them in cold water and dry on low. I remove them while they are still slightly damp and allow them to air dry on a hangar.
