Women's Plus Size Stretch Boot-cut Chino Pants
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.

High Quality Chinos
I'm a plus size and it's really tough to find good pants and jeans. Most these days have a lot of stretch to them which to me, is a designer's way of trying to use cheap stretch fabric and fit more body types badly. I'm definitely curvy, but for wear-to-work pants, I like pants that drape and skim rather than be more fitting. These pants are it. They barely have stretch, will fit at the waist and then go straight down from the hip. It gives off a bit of a wider leg silhouette. Since there is very little stretch, I would size up in these if you have heavier thighs or a large butt because the fabric won't stretch a whole lot to accommodate. You can see in the photo that these pants fit the model straight through her hips and straight down, and they don't give much in the crotch...I sized up in these pants. They arrived within 3 days, even with custom hemming...awesome. The chino fabric is so thick and high quality. One thing they changes from the last chinos I purchased is better placement of the pockets so they don't stick out. These pockets lay flatter. I did not wear these pants until a month after I received them and I've lost about 6lbs since then, and I have to return them for a size or two smaller. I'm definitely getting another pair. Love this about the LE return policy...I can keep losing weight and return haha. I love them because the fabric is so thick and high quality that they look nice and dressy for work with heels...yet, I would be able to wear them with clogs or Converse on the weekend with a t-shirt and have a casual look without looking like a raggedy teenager in wrinkled khakis.
The only reason why I did not give these an "excellent" rating is because when they were hemmed, I don't think they were ironed well prior to hemming, so there is a sort of permanent wrinkle in the hem. But as I said, I'm going to get another pair. They are pricey but worth it if you take care of them.
PS: for hourglass plus sizes: As I mentioned, you'll probably have to size up to accommodate butt/thigh, and then have the waist taken in. It will be worth it to have awesome pants.

I love the way these pants fit! I feel good when I wear them. When I ordered them I read reviews and looked at the item dimensions so I got a good fit. Thank you for providing accurate information on your website.

Boot Cut Chino Pants
These pants are so soft and so comfortable and fit perfectly! I love them! I bought in two different colors and am so glad I did!

slimming, stylish colors, comfortable fit
I've been buying the fit 2 chinos and have been quite happy with them, but after purchasing (and falling in love with) the exhale denims last season I decided to try the tummy-control chinos too. Very glad I did: the pants fit very well--I'm a pear and the waist isn't too too loose, while the legs are neither tight nor baggy. And the pants seem to hold me in without any discomfort or, thus far, stretching over time
Too, I love the color I bought, cinnamon bark, which is deeper than the color shown on my screen. It looked fabulous with a long, fitted deep grey sweater with red-brown leather pockets that I have--a very sleek look. And as others have mentioned, it's utterly wonderful to specify the hem length: as a short plus size I generally have to have everything hemmed at extra expense. I'm now thinking of the teal!

Don't wear well
The fit is great and the length is perfect, but these pants wrinkle as soon as you sit down in them. They also come out of the dryer wrinkled. Very disappointed in the fabric. I will not order any more of these.

I love these pants. They are very well made - the ideal pant for work or fun or fun at work! They wear beautifully. I even dared to wear them while travelling and was very pleased (I say "dared" as I have them in white). The fabric moves with ease and falls into place even after a long flight. They also wash well. I have received many compliments on these pants and am always excited to tell people that I ordered them online and that they arrived hemmed to my doorstep. THANK YOU Lands' End!

A little pricey but a great pair of pants
I am 5'2" on a good day and a size 20-22W. I have a terrible time finding pants that fit. The free hemming from LE is great and it's wonderful that you can still return hemmed pants if they don't work out. Luckily, these fit PERFECTLY and no return was necessary. Bought the teal and walnut and am coming back for the navy and raisin. Being so short, I have a very short torso and typically have issues with the seat and crotch of pants hanging down way too far, even when I purchase petite plus. However, these fit wonderfully and the high pockets keep the gap near the waist at a minimum. I previously ordered a pair of LE pants with the diagonal slash pockets seen on some of their other styles - I only wear those in the winter when a sweater can cover the gaping pockets. I'll be able to wear these all year round!

These are the best pants that Landsend has for plus size even though they look awful on the model. The offset pockets are a must so that they don't stick out. Also I love that they are hemmed to the right length. The only recommendations that I would make are more saturated color so that they don't fade as quickly and more colors.
