Women's Starfish Refined Stretch Pants
Comfy, but for exercise or at-home wear only
These pants are very comfortable and great for lounging around the house or going for a walk to exercise. However, I would not wear them to work or to even run errands--they are far too casual for that (and I don't really wear very formal clothes to begin with). They remind me of sweatpants or yoga pants: super comfortable, but not as "refined" as I assumed based on some of the other reviews. So I would say they are the perfect choice for women who are looking to change into a comfortable outfit after returning from work.

Do NOT run large compared to other LE knit pants - don't be fooled!
The pants are a nice fabric and fit/sit well. At least they will when I get the proper size. I read a lot of reviews here that indicated that this pant "runs large" and that one should size down when ordering. Perhaps they are more generously sized in comparison to other companies' offerings, but these do not in fact run large in comparison to the LE Sport Knit pants or Sport Knit cords. I am currently wearing a pair of 2x Sport Knit Cords that are a bit on the roomy side of fitting well, but the recently-arrived pair of Starfish pants in the same size are more like a second skin! So - plus-size ladies beware of the well-meaning advice in other reviews; you may not want to size down after all!

Very comfortable, shape enhancing pants. I would highly recommend them.
I absolutely love these pants. The wide waist band is very comfortable and the style compliments my curvy shape. (I have a pear shaped figure.) I purchased one pair and had to exchange them for a smaller size. But they were so comfortable, I then purchased 2 and I am about to order another pair. I recently went on vacation and wore the pants on my 6 hour flight and 2 hour drive to my destination. The pants still looked great (no sagging at all) and as comfortable as when I first slipped them on. Honestly, if more colors were available I would purchase one in every color.

The perfect dress casual pant
As a short (5'4") plus sized (3X) women, it's often hard to find comfortable fitting pants that look good and aren't too long. These are truly the perfect pant. They keep you decently warm in the winter and are lightweight enough to wear into warmer weather seasons. The petite plus length is perfect. And the small zipper pocket is great for stashing an ID or a phone in a hurry. I've worn these to lounge around the house or to wear to work. I've bought these in 4 different colors now and haven't been disappointed. I would highly recommend.

Fit is nice but the quality is low
I loved these pants when I got them but I found a whole in the inseam after the first wash. What a disappointment.

Great fit & so comfortable
The pants run a
Little big, so that is why I ordered a small this time. I have three pairs and just love the fit of these very comfortable pants. If your are a teacher you need to get a pair!

Comfy but runs large
These pants are incredibly soft and comfortable and have a great leg opening. The rise is just right, they sit at the waist, and the material is stretchy without getting baggy when worn. Even though they do not run as large as other Land's End pants I do recommend sizing down since I normally wear a size 14, ordered them in large and they are big. Will keep them since they are soooo comfortable but wish I would have ordered one size down.

Great weekend pant
These pants are very comfortable, and a much higher quality than I was expecting. I will definitely buy more of these. The color is not what I was expecting - the color was "Smoke Brown Heather", which looked more like a grey color on the website (and this is the color I was expecting). However, the name "Smoke Brown Heather" is an accurate description of the color, so I am not complaining. It is a nice, neutral color, and I will definitely get a lot of use out of this item. This was part of my first order from Land's End, and I am impressed by the quality of all three of the items I ordered.

I wear a lot of knits from other companies and thought I would try the starfish pants since they were on sale. I will use them mainly for relaxing at home and so the color wasn't too important. They were a nice surprise--very soft fabric, well cut, and attractive. I wear a size 8-10, and the medium is a little roomy on me overall--a little large in the waist, relaxed in the hips, and about an inch too long. However, they suit my purpose for getting them and look forward to getting more,.

I love these "stylish" knit pants!
I like to wear traditional type sweat pants around the house, but my adult daughter does not let me wear them out of the house! I have to do that when she is not around. I bought a pair of these more stylish Starfish knit pants in a dark gray at the LE shop in Sears, and noticed that the Medium fit me the way I like them - I like them long as I have long legs, and I prefer that the waist is loose. So the Medium fit me a bit big. I am 5'6" and weigh about 140 pounds. I went ahead and ordered another pair in the slate brown as they were on sale, and they also fit the way I liked them. I have washed and dried the gray pants and am happy to say they kept their sizing and shape well. Now I have two pairs of knit pants - don't call them "sweat pants" - I can wear out of the house and not look around to see if my daughter is watching me!
