Women's Wrinkle-Free Bayside Pants, Favorite Fit is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 1088.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Fit Bayside Pants I ordered 3 pair of these pants of different colors. These fit perfectly and I am very satisfied with the quality. They washed and dried well, and fit the same after being washed and dried as they did before. They did not require ironing, however, I do prefer a crease in mine so I did iron them. I didn't think the legs were big, as stated in other reviews. They fit like slacks, not skinny jeans. These are nice enough that I can wear to work in a job that requires business attire. They hold their shape all day and don't get saggy in the seat or knees like some cotton pants do. I would recommend these pants, and will likely eventually order again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Bean chinos were my faorite for years, but I hadn’t purchased them in quite some time. I was shocked at how the quality has changed: cheaply made without any of the expected internal trouser facings which allow the pants to fit well & lay flat. They have what I have dubbed “half pockets” in front which are virtually worthless as pockets & also do not allow the pants to lay flat. There must be women who love the short pockets because they’re almost everywhere now - I detest them. They pull up in washing & don’t stay down. The fabric was OK, not the smooth quality and weight I was expecting. I don’t know how they will wash - they are going back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Skimpy cut, not well made I had a pair of wrinkle-free LL Bean twills that I bought only a year or two ago. The fit is a bit masculine for my taste but they were well made, sturdy and wrinkle free and they fit very comfortably. So I decided to order the same size in black. Perhaps it's not exactly the same product; but this pair of pants is of flimsier fabric, a skimpier cut, and the finishing details from my original twills simply are not there. They are tighter and not comfortable at all so I'm sending them back. It's very disppointing and surprising since I associate LL Bean with high quality. In fact, though, I created an account just so I could share this feedback.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from need narrower, tapered, longer legs i love the fabric of the favorite fit wrinkle-free bayside twills-comfortable 100% cotton that is truly wrinkle-free. the waist and rise are perfect. however, the hips are a little full and the thighs are too roomy. the legs are way too wide and short(i'm 5'3 3/4) i need new pants and would order the regular length, but i'm looking for narrower legs(not "skinny"- just a nice taper). i've looked at other pants l.l. bean has to offer and, sadly, they all contain the dreaded spandex. so now i'm stuck-will wait for the spring catalog and see what's available. thank-you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Odd Sizing I have bought these pants before and when ordering this time I decided to go one size up, from 8 to 10, because I'll be undergoing physical therapy and need roomier clothes. When they arrived I tried them on and they fit exactly like the size 8. So, I laid them out and compared...the 8 and the 10 measured exactly the same everywhere...waist, hips, seat, thighs, etc. I'll keep them because they are my true size, I just won't wear them to PT. While reading around the site I have noticed other people have commented on size discrepancies. Don't you think you should correct this problem?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Oops This is my fourth pair purchased within three months (work uniform). The fabric is great for active work - breathable and true to the description, resists wrinkling, even after many washes. Unfortunately there are some problems: the most troubling is the wide variance in construction. Purchasing multiple pairs in a short period of time, I expected all to fit pretty much the same. Not so. Up to 1 full inch differences in length, even greater variances in rise and in the width of pant legs. The fabric also fades pretty rapidly. I am a 30+ LLBean customer and this year I have returned 3 items - first time ever. Bleh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them, need updating I have been wearing these pants for years--I know, because in old photos going back 20 years, I'm wearing this same model of pants! They are comfortable, easy to care for and long-wearing. (Don't worry--I do replace them every 3-4 years!). But pant styles have changed over the years, and I'm looking for a slimmer fit, esp in the leg, with the same quality and durability as these. The Easy-Stretch pants come very close, and I love these as well, but their lighter weight makes them impractical in the cooler months. Please consider developing a more modern (slimmer) fit of your Bayside Twills that will take me through fall and winter. Thank you!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from PLEASE BRING BACK CURVY FIT I have tried all the different makes of these pants because the curvy fit is no longer made. I was told that LLBean had too many complaints about them and they are discontinued. LLBean just lost one if their best customers as I have been shopping at LLBean since I lived in New Brunswick and although I moved, I still order on-line. Used to be the best quality but now everything runs small. I even went up a size in these pants and the legs are huge but the waist is too tight, even though my very old curvy fit still fits perfect. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE BRING BACK THE CURVY FIT.
