Women's Plus Size Stretch Boot-cut Chino Pants
Love these pants
The trouser style is great for work. They fit the business casual dress code and are comfortable without looking too dressed down. The fit is perfect and the length comes in whatever you need. I have some long for heels and some shorter for flats.

Average but could be better
I purchased 2 pair of these pants back in May of this year and I was thrilled to be able to find short-waisted pants that I could have hemmed to my height. I am not petite, but just short-waisted and it is extremely difficult to find any pants that fit correctly. I was hesitant about the price, but reasoned that because I could wear them all year round, cost-per-wear was fairly low and knowing LE, they would last quite a while. They were great during the summer months for work--casual but not sloppy, fit the atmosphere of our office just right. Once cold weather set in, I made a disturbing discovery. These are too short to wear with winter shoes & socks. I understand that I was the one that dictated my inseam length when I ordered these, but unfortunately I will have to work out another option for cold weather. Now my cost per wear is doubled. As far as the design of the pants themselves, the black color seems to have faded a good bit. They're comparable to my other navy pants I purchased a while back. The pockets are probably the most horrendous thing about these pants. They bunch up considerably when I pull them out of the dryer and even though I try to flatten them before I hang them up, they don't straighten out properly until they're on me and I've worked my finger into every nook and cranny. The front pockets also gape when I try to iron them. Its hard to get them perfectly flat to get that perfect crisp look. If something like that bothers you, don't buy these. I really want to purchase these again, especially since they seem to come in other colors right now & are on sale (can I get a hallelujah!) but they only hem them an inch longer than I already have and I'm afraid that won't be enough. I might get some with an unfinished hem though...
I feel like LE is really missing a niche market as far as young professionals go - especially us plus-sized ones. I don't want to wear frumpy (sorry but its true) 7-day back elastic waist pants to work! I need pants that work, I need smart looking blazers & tops, I need clothing that is hip, but still classic and actually fits me. I guess I just have to keep looking. LE is good for last-resort pants, when you're fed up with the offerings in local stores and are at the end of your rope and honestly are beyond caring about the price point, but the majority of my shopping will have to be done elsewhere.

I ordered Fit 2 boot-cut jeans, Fit 3 straight leg jeans, and these chinos, all in the same size. The Fit 3 jeans were great - and I should add that I washed them once in advance, and the color never bled on to my skin or other clothing when I wore them. Fit 2 jeans gapped too much at the waist and went back. These chinos had a good color - I liked the French walnut - but the sizing was off. It's NOT fun to return something for a larger size when one pair of jeans in the same size fit and another pair of jeans in the identical size and cut to the chinos had been too big! Disappointed that French walnut wasn't available in the larger size. PLEASE develop consistency in sizing, so that I can brag about LandsEnd rather than say, "Well, these are OK, but those aren't..."

Fit didn't work for me
This fit didn't work for me. I didn't feel any spandex in the material. And I didn't care for the color in person-- hard to tell on the screen.but it was a sale item, so I tried.Oh well, returns are easy.

Chi is run a little small
These are great, but the first pair I ordered, in the size I normally order, was too tight and I had to return for bigger size. Bigger size fit fine.

Nice pants but too much of a low waist and tight fit for me
I can't wear the low waist pants. I liked the fit, but it was a bit snug for a woman in a Plus size.

The fit is flattering and the material seems like it will hold up well. Legs are relatively wide...I am not of the age group (or body shape) that wants skinny jeans! So,while they might seem old school for some, I was glad to find them. Looking forward to cooler days!

nice for some, not for me
I wanted to like these pants. They were a comfortable fit, they fit my bottom and thighs nicely. But I felt the flare in the legs was a bit too much and the French Walnut color, although nice, was not flattering. I felt like it made me look bigger.

Ordered 5 days ago from Sydney and they arrived this morning! Love my chinos, perfect fit. Love the colour and cut, and fact that no tailoring required. Will be ordering more.
