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

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.

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!
