Women's Plus Boot-cut Jeans - Fit 2
Loved them...but watch out for dye!
I loved the jeans! They fit well. They have a bit of stretch to them. I'd like to see them offered in other washes.
Speaking of 'washes'....it took me a great deal of scrubbing and exfoliating to get the "smurf" off my legs after wearing them. Do NOT wash them with anything that would be altered by denim dye. They've been washed 3 times so far, and blue still rubs off on my hands. I'm looking into dye fixative, but I haven't tried it yet.

Great Jeans - even if color runs a bit
I've loved LE Fit 2 jeans w/ stretch in plus sizes for some time now and needed some of new pairs to replace my previous much-worn ones are. After reading the reviews about the saturated indigo dyes running I thought I would try them anyhow -- love the fit and the stretch is super nice. I ordered 1 size smaller than I usually wear and - voila - they fit after about 5 minutes of wearing. Before wearing, I washed them a couple of times in cold water with 3/4 white vinegar added to wash and fabric softener to rinse. I still notice slight color transfer on white underwear, but not on skin nor light-colored car seat. I am careful what I wear them with for now, and will make sure to wash them separately...but I can deal with the dye issue. It would be nice if LE did offer them in slightly less dark denim though. I also like the lighter-weight fabric which is perfect for cooler spring and summer days. BTW - bought them on sale with multiple discounts, so price was perfect too!

I have washed these jeans multiple times and the dye from the jeans still coats everything. Last night I was horrified to see that when I wiped my legs with a damp cloth the cloth was coated with dark blue stain the whole length of my leg. I don't appreciate the fact that I have probably been leaving that stain on my and my friends upholstery whenever I sit down. I expected better from Lands End and don't think I will be ordering from them again.

Not a great fit and they turn me blue!
I wanted to like these pants because they are lightweight, soft texture, and seemed like they'd be comfortable. Unfortunately there isn't anything I like about them. They fit fine in legs and hips but were big in the waist (just a bit initially). Once I wore them for a little bit, they stretched out to a point that they would slip off my hips easily and were very baggy in my legs/hips/butt! I ended up putting in a second button on the waist about 2.5" in so that they would at least not just fall off my hips! I still wear them for yard work because I didn't want to waste them but that's about it.
If the problematic fit wasn't enough, these stupid pants stain everything! I washed them before wearing them... but was still BLUE all over! I then washed them and dried them two times in row.... and they STILL turned things blue. Even now, after 7 or 8 washes, these pants STILL leave a mild blue hue on my legs and hands (from putting hands in pockets I'd guess). I'm not all about the Smurf look.

I Love These Jeans
Lands End is the only place where I can get boot cut jeans in a 28 inch inseam. I'm only 5'3", so I can't wear flats with boot cut jeans unless they are shorter. These are perfect. They are very well made and fit great. Please make these in lighter washes!!!!!

I Love These Jeans!!! Super comfortable and dress up very nicely!
The Fit 2 is True to the style ie: fits the same way my khaki's fit. I love the way they look. I don't wear jeans that are skin tight, so what ends up happening is they sit lower in the crotch area and i feel like im wearing skater jeans. But these fit great. Right on my imagined waist that feels comfortable to me. No skater in sight- The only down side to this color is that it rubs off. Even after a few washes. If only this wash could stay this dark permanantly, and not wear off slightly when i wear white/light colored shirts. Its very subtle, however i notice it. LE does warn you, in the profile of the slight color wear. Please start making different shades of blue in this fit. I LOVE LOVE the fit and the jeans, if it was available in a slightly more worn darker blue that didn't rub off, that would be amazing and i'd buy all of them! Im not a fan of super light blue jeans, and there seems to be a bit more saturation of light blue jeans for plus size ladies on the market. Remember We want to be in Style too! Thanks Lands End!

Hopeful for great jeans but no go......
I bought these jeans in hopes they would be my go to jeans. The length was great and loved the color! I wore them and they ended up looking like clown pants as they stretched about 2 sizes in the bottom and legs. They also bled all over my legs and my hands looked dirty as the blue rubbed off on everything. So I washed them twice on hot and dried them in the dryer. I still cant wear them as they stain everything blue and just get huge on me. I am bummed because I love LE and these jeans were pricey. I cant return a washed and worn item so I am stuck with pants that I will never wear again.

Issue with waist fit
The pants fit perfectly from the hips down but the waist gapped in the back 3 inches or more.
