Women's Plus Size Corduroy Ankle Pants
These pants are not great
I bought four pairs of these because the colors were great. The good news is I got them cheap. The bad news is they are not really wearable. I took my measurements & ordered the correct size, but like most of LE's plus size pants, they fit in the waist but are cut way too full through the tummy, hips and entire length of the leg. They look comically baggy. I really wish LE would get better at cutting plus-size pants because they always look so good in the catalog, but are disappointing in real life. Maybe try them on some models who are wearing the sizes at the higher end of the spectrum or something? Other brands do it very well. These are not ankle pants on an average height person either. Even though they were inexpensive, they were ultimately a waste of money.

Fits perfect! plus size
I order this pants in 18w plus the yellow one color (curry) and fits good, stretch a little so runs perfect. I love the color and the fabric. I normally used in Lands End jeans fit 2 20w.

Pink is Nice! Size Up! Very Nice Cords!
I bought these in the pink and it's very soft and pretty, not the bright pink as is shown, which is good for me... because I was worried I'd made a mistake with getting too bright of a color. But it's perfect! I'm short so these work well for regular length for me! But beware! They are very tight! Wish I'd gotten a size up! Ah well... a little tightness from time to time is ok too!

Perfect for the Office and the Weekend!
I am a size 2 petite, and I own these corduroy pants in several different colors - Deep Burgundy, Tan, Red and Green. I am also planning on going back and purchasing cobalt. These have been my favorite pants of all time. The ankle pans work fabulous from the fall through the spring; in the fall and winter, the pants look great tucked into tall boots. In spring or early fall, the pants look just as good with flats. These are semi-casual, but can also be dressed up. I am an educator and I have worn them teaching. They are super comfortable. I know some people have complained about the fit, but for me finding pants that fit me right is near impossible since I am short. These are really flattering on me and I always get a ton of compliments! Also, I am 27 so these still definitely can look hip and stylish.

Fit 3 doesn't work for me
I'm plus sized with a bigger tummy and slimmer hips and I forgot this fit was opposite that when I boughht these. However, my main complaint with these it that they are not 'slim' in the ankle where they need to be to make this length work. They look like boot cut pants hemmed too short. Fortunately in this case, I have a shorter inseam so they don't look TOO short on me, but I still wish the leg was more tapered.

I tried these in two different plus sizes but the fit didn't work on me. One pair was too big in the waist and seat, they looked ridiculous. The other pair was a little snug in the waist but still too baggy in the seat and legs. For cropped pants they would need to be more fitted in the legs, otherwise they just look like I'm wearing too-short regular pants. Too bad, because the colors are great. Maybe this is a style that just doesn't translate into plus sizes.

Love the fabric but fit is tight
I bought my usual size 4 and was able to button and zip the pants but felt it was too tight to be appropriate. For example, the lines of my underwear showed in the bag since the pants were too tight. The fabric is so great. I recommend unless you like your pants very tight you size up one size.

Cut is good, true to size..
If you like ankle pants, this is a good buy. Somehow, I just want to stick to boot cut. Nothing wrong with the pant.

Pants are comfortable
I am an average plus size (18) and the ankle length is great. I just wish that they were more tapered along the leg. I have legs but the pants are a bit wide. Again....I really wish they were more tapered. That is the only flaw I can find. I'm going to keep the 5 colors I purchased for comfort. Great with boat shoes!

Loved these the first couple of wearings but one wash and they're all shrunk. They're clinging to my calves, and are much shorter. Lands End usually has more reliable wash-and-wear clothes but these have definitely changed a lot. I'll try them one more time but I am bummed.
