Women's Ultimate Chinos, Favorite Fit Cropped is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 63.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect crops These cropped pants were perfect for me. I am an apple shaped woman, carrying more weight in my middle, than in my hips and thighs. I usually wear a size 14 in pants, but always size up in LL Bean pants because theirs tend to run small in the waist for me. These I bought in a 16 and they are a bit big but not enough to send back. I wore them with a cute belt and all was good. They are more straight (waist to hip ratio) than a shaped pant. The length was great for me, but I'm tall, 5 foot 9 inches. I liked the material, substantial without being too thick. They do tend to wrinkle, so take that into account. Haven't washed yet but will do so in cold and a light fluff dry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from only one flaw These are well made. I only buy favorite fit pants from LLBean now that I am getting older and have a hunch back. I don't like anything on my waist. I recommend these pants in the other colors but not in navy. I have to send them back because they collect lint. But they are excellent pants. I normally order size 10 in regular LLBean pants but in favorite fit size 12 is a better fit. I'm 5'6", 133 lbs. These are a little thick for summer heat but good in air conditioned buildings.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I was hoping for I was hoping to find comfortable crops that looked and felt good, but these weren't it. As others have noted, the material was rather stiff and the feel was somewhat uncomfortable. The bottoms were also on the wide side for crops. While in the past most of the Bean petite pants have fit well, these did not, and were returned. Last year, the True Shape line was offered as crops, and I was hoping to get those in a different color, but for some mysterious reason those are no longer available. That's a shame, as those were quite comfortable and looked good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice chinos I bought a few pairs of these chinos in different colors. They are light weight and comfortable. They are a little stiff but not as bad as the other reviews imply. I believe they will soften with wear and washing. They do get a little wrinkly after washing/drying but they are cotton so I expected that (the wrinkles are not extreme). The colors are great. I am slim and slightly tall and a size 6 fits well, not baggy or tight. I bought these to wear at work in warmer months and hope they last for years. The cropped version fits slightly looser than the regular version (in a good way).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Maybe It's Me Overall these pants are probably fine, a little wrinkley, but fine. My problem lately with LLB seems to be finding the right size. The last pants that I bought that fit me fine were size 6. These practically fell off my hips at size 6. Given that I wasn't too happy with the wrinkles, I just returned them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No longer my favorite fit These used to fit me like a glove, but no longer. I couldn’t figure out why they were tighter in the waist and gapped in the rear until I compared them to others that I had hanging in the closet. I don’t have much of a bum so my old ones just sat across my hips. Unfortunately, because of the extra seaming, these have a pronounced gapping. Would be perfect for a more pear shaped lady, but not for me. I’ll keep them to do gardening because I’m not going to the post office during this pandemic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great chinos I love the fit of these chinos. The waist is comfortable, the rise a bit higher than medium but not too high. I have an athletic build and often have problems finding pants that are not tight on my calfs. These fit just the way I want them, not too tight, not too loose. The fabric is a good weight and does not stretch out, it is a little stiff but not uncomfortable. I like the cropped style for summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool and tidy I really like the pale green, almost blue gray color that goes with everything. They fit very well but are loose enough to stay cool. So far they have shed stains - I knelt on a blueberry - I didn't have to struggle with the stain and it came right out at next washing. Same with ballpoint pen mark. These are my pandemic pants: they don't go many places but they keep me looking civilized.
