Rated 5 out of 5 by chesapeakers Perfect comfort and perfect style for balancing a shorter, thick figure!
Wonderful comfort, quality and fit, this pant has it all! Please never stop making these Land's End. I am 5'4", long waist-ed with thick legs, no matter how much I weigh or work out. These pants provide perfect drape and balance to my figure and I feel like a million bucks in them. On my Soap Box for a Minute: The bottom line is, the "skinny jean" and super straight leg pants that are trendy right now.....are millions of other women built like me.... worst fashion nightmare. They make you look 20 lbs heavier and a foot shorter than you are. The bootcut, wide leg and flare styles are a miracle in balancing and elongating my type of figure, and many of us refuse to give up looking good, for the sake of fashion trend best suited for only about 10% of body types. Sadly many women who's body type is not suited for the "skinny jean" styles (which is the majority of the population) are so caught up in fashion trend, they don't consider a wide leg pant like this, when it would actually be a far more flattering style for them. Give these pants a try if quality and flattering fit are more important to you than pop culture hype! Bootcuts, flares and palazzo pants are starting to pop up again everywhere.....because the bottom line is they just look better.... on EVERYONE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mandieo Almost to good for exerise
I bought these roomy legged pants for my upcoming knee surgery but the fabric and fit is so nice that I have already worn them to church. They are comfortable, the fabric is soft, so I know they are going to be just perfect for recovering from my surgery. Most likely I'll be wearing for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BonjourFromCanada Great flattering fit for 5'8", high quality fabric and construction
For a change the waist fits ! (In the Starfish pants I have to take the waist in.) I'm a pretty typical size 12, and the 'regular' medium fits perfectly. In some LE pants the 'tall' is a better fit but these are long-waisted enough and just the right length. Very flattering fit top to bottom and fabric feels as though it might be more durable than Starfish pants (won't fade, won't sag at knees). Great for long plane rides without looking too casual.

I've read the reviews. Those of you who said the pants are too wide, please, buy some different pants then. The cut on these pants (for those of us with bigger booties/thighs) is AMAZING. They wash well. The fabric is beautiful. I can't say enough about how much I love them. Please make them forever. I ordered 3 pair last year, came back to order more, but you were out of my size (I pray you haven't discontinued them). I never write reviews, but felt compelled. My heart will be broke if these are no longer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MattieB Good for cooler weather
The fabric is heavier and more poly-blend than cotton-blend like the 'refined stretch' Starfish pants. The medium size is a bit tighter than the Starfish pants, and the rise is a bit lower. Although I'm 5'3" I order the regular length because I wanted longer pants and a higher rise. I wore these on planes and for dress-up dinners and they looked just fine even after a long day. I order for a 'snug' fit so get mediums even though I'm on the high end of a size 12 pant. The pant legs are wide but not so wide that I feel like they're flapping around - on my size they look more 'straight' than flared.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Robyn3 These are my favorite pants in the whole world!
I just love these. They hold the tummy in and the wider leg, I think, is flattering. They can be worn for very casual or semi-dressy. If I have any choice of pants to wear, it is these! Please keep selling them!

Please Lands End, do not discontinue these pants! The fit and fabric are amazing! I want more, but my size is sold out and customer service tells me there are no back orders. I'll keep checking and hoping you'll have more available soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrsParky Wonderful pants!
Very comfortable, warm on chilly days walking at the park, and very stylish! I had to shorten them a bit, but used some of that hemming tape (Stitch Witchery) following the directions on the package precisely, and now they are the perfect length! I love these pants and from the excellent way they are crafted, I know they will serve me well. I recommend them highly!

Love the fit. Love the relaxed leg. Wash beautifully. Comfortable even on a hot day. Sad...I fear they are being discontinued. I wanted to order an additional pair in Med Petite and that size is no longer available. Please. Please keep this pant.

Rated 3 out of 5 by shikai314 very WIDE leg, be sure it's what you want
I read all the other reviews about very wide legs. But still went ahead and ordered them as I do not like to wear clingy , thin bottoms . I returned them as these are seriously, big ,bell bottoms . Caution for Petite ladies , if size 10 and below, these flares will look very unbalancing and further shorten you . My husband took one look and said "no,no, no" and I agree completely .Also, the styling is a flaring line drawn from the waist to the ankle , looked skirt like on me. If that is what you are looking for, please go ahead. If you are looking for something, non clingy, thicker fabric, but not baggy or very large flare,go for the women;s active wear pants. They are non clingy, soft, wash very well, waist fits well without digging in, buttery soft, love , love , love them.Am able to do yoga, hiking, core workouts, plus more, very well cut.
