Women's Plus Size Fit 2 Exhale™ Tummy Control Straight Leg 5-pocket Denim Jeans
A little short!
I really like these jeans. They're a good colour, the right amount of stretch and the fit is nice. But at 5'-6", I'm really surprised to have ordered the longest length inseam and still have to wear them as crops! It's fine because they look cute rolled but I had to go back and see what I ordered to make sure I didn't miss something. I ordered 2 pairs in the exact same size and they were identical in length so I don't think it was a packing error or anything.

Finally, jeans that fit.
As a curvy 5'3" woman with a relatively long inseam, I have had an extremely difficult time finding jeans that fit well. Most of the time I have to compromise on something - no front pockets (why?!?), low quality, too long or short, or just uncomfortable fabric. Just when I think I've found the perfect brand, they discontinue the style I like or go out of business! I dress in a polished casual style and cannot stand embellishments on jeans, so many of the other plus size brands are out of the question.
On a whim, just after another mediocre pair of mine wore out and ripped, I turned to LE and ordered these in both colors. I tried them on as soon as they arrived and was so impressed! They have the perfect cotton to poly-stretch ratio to keep their shape throughout the day while allowing comfortable movement. The rise is perfect for me anyway, and they sit right on my hips, just grazing my navel, without gaping in back when I sit. I can't tell you how great it is to be able to customize the length, too. Why doesn't everyone do this?
I haven't worn the rinse color yet, so I can't answer to the color transfer, but I've had jeans that have taken months of washing to make it stop. Sometimes you can wash them with a cup of salt added to act as a mordent, or a bit of white vinegar. I may try a bit of both.
My only wish is that Lands' End take the concept and fit of these jeans and run with it - offer them in more colors, offer various leg options in addition to the straight leg (skinny, wide, bootcut), and don't ever change the fit or discontinue these. If only all of your plus size pants fit like this!

I was hesitant to purchase these jeans because several reviewers didn't like the fabric, but I think the weight and (so far) the quality of the fabric are just fine. They fit well. Most jeans are too long, so I appreciate being able to select the length. I bought two pairs and am considering buying a third just in case they go out of stock.

Best Fitting - Most Comfortable Jeans
Best fitting, most comfortable jeans that don't wrinkle and maintain a beautiful fabric finish. Would like to see these in Dark Rich Brown, Faded Denim, and Deep Colors like Loganberry. Leg shape is very flattering. Waist moves with you when you sit, bend, move.

Love the fit, but can't stop the DYE TRANSFER!
I have gotten so many compliments on these jeans. They fit my curvy lower half perfectly, and are SO comfortable. I especially love that you can select the length, which is perfect. I bought these based on another reviewer's recommendation for the fit and hoped the reviews about the dye rubbing off were a fluke. Bummer for me; I have washed these jeans a dozen times, vinegar rinse, etc. and the dye STILL comes off on my hands, legs and worst of all, upholstery. Thank goodness my sofa has a washable slipcover because I turned it blue just from sitting on it. My grey cloth interior in the car however, I can't remove and toss in the washer and now it is light blue as well. Heaven forbid I store my phone or camera in my back pocket, putting it in and taking it out turned my hands blue. You can see it wash off in the sink, it turns the soap bubbles blue too. I want to buy many more pairs, but can't deal with the dye rubbing off on everything. I can't recommend anyone buy them and I won't buy more until the dye issue is fixed. They're the only jeans that fit me nicely. I'm so sad. Please Lands End, figure it out and fix it!!!!

Didn't like the way they fit. Would never have worn them.
Didn't like the material and the way it fit around my backside.

I like everything about these jeans except the color selection. Wish there was a stonewash choice. Lack of color choice kept me from ordering these for awhile, but needed a new pair. These fit much better than previous jeans I've purchased from LE, just not my favorite color.

Great stretchy jeans
i like the stretchiness and thinness of this fabric. the dark wash is a nice dark color. the length is perfect for me, i am 5"6". when i sit down, i like that these jeans give a lot in the waist so i don't feel pinched while sitting. the only complaint is that the waist gaps open at the back, so i will try a size down and see if that solves the gapping problem. the fabric is thin, but not so thin it feels flimsy. i like my pants to be thin so that they dont' feel constricting.

Love these jeans!!!!
I love these jeans! They fit great and are so comfortable. I have a hard time finding jeans that flatter my body and are also comfortable, but these do both. Most jeans, after I have worn them for a few hours, tend to stretch out and become baggy, but not these. They really hold their shape and flatter the tummy area.

Fine pair of jeans
Not nearly as expensive as NYDJ, but I loved the extra help in the tummy area. I wish there were more style options. Got the dark rinse, and they are great.
