by KathyG I love these pants!
The travel pants are all that was promised and more! The fit is comfortable and flattering. These pants can be dressed up or down. I've worn them in the classroom as well as at a party.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MEL2590 Never Wearing Other Pants
These are the best pants I ever bought. They're very comfortable, and very flattering. I love wearing them to work. That seem down the front gives them a more professional look than normal leggings would. The only thing I could complain about is they're a little long on me compared to the picture. I'm only 5'3" so they come past the ankle. It would be nice if they made a petite size for short people like me. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by CatherineU They just fall short of the "Five Hearter" review---here's why
When I first saw these pants on the site, I was intrigued. For me, the J. Crew Pixie Pants and the J. Crew FactoryGigi Pants are my go-to pants as are the Crew Minnies. I love the way the Pixie pants fall just above the ankle--and I love the fit. Then I read all the wonderful reviews so I had to make the purchase.
When I got to the store and saw them on the rack, they looked a bit long, but hey--you don't know until you try them on--right????
Since the store was crowded I purchased the Medium and went on my merry way.
Here's how I felt when I tried them on at home: I'm an 8 and the pants fit very nicely. I love the pintucking on the pants--it looks great. However, the pants were long. Listen--I'm just under 5'6" and they were longer than ankle pants. However that didn't bother me so much because I have enough ankle pants anyway. What REALLY bothered me was the bottom hem. The pixie pants and gigi pants are very tight around the ankle/bottom hem area. I love that. These pants were not as tight--it was kind of a turnoff for me but not enough to return them.
While this is one pair of pants that is constructed very well, those two "issues" I have are a matter of personal taste. I can still wear these with boots and they will look fantastic. In addition, because of the elastic waistband, I can not only enjoy a good meal wearing them, but the pants lend themselves very well for shirts not tucked in and longer sweaters. I do recommend them to others, but if you are super-fussy about length and tight hems, you may want to pass.
Thank you for reading this review and I hope I could help in some way!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Becky0122 Great pants, not a great fit for me
I was so excited to order these pants. From other reviews, they seemed comfortable, but not too much like "leggings". When I tried them on, they fit very comfortably in my thighs and hips, but seemed very loose around my knees and calves. It's possible that this style just didn't fit my body type, but, unfortunately, I had to return them. Had they been a little bit smaller in the calves, they would have stayed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BrandyJ Can't get enough, of these pants!!
Was unsure of ordering these pants...have always stuck to the philosophy of "you should NEVER wear leggings, as a substitute, for pants"....so glad I gave them a try! They're so much thicker than a legging, almost like a riding pant. Looks fabulous with anything I've tried them with. I love that you can dress them up or down, so easily. I ordered them in black, but my husband loved them on me so much, that he said to order the other colors. I don't know about you ladies....but if a husband ever tells you to buy clothes....then they must look pretty good on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GretchenL Best leggings ever!
While shopping at the st. Armand's circle store my husband noticed these on a salesgirl. I was reluctant but in need of a comfortable pant to wear traveling throughout Europe. These pants are surprisingly flattering; I went down a size too. The only comment I have for anyone is that the camel color is hard to wear and I returned them.
I purchased 2 black, 2 navy, one charcoal. Will be great with boots but the salesgirl wore them with jack Rogers flats too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CBee Great pant, comfortable yet fashionable
I absolutely LOVE these pants! They really are what they are advertised as--a perfect travel pant. When I travel for business (usually to southeast asia, where it is warm but I still need to be professional and covered) these are my go to travel companion. I own two colors, black and midnight navy, and wish Lilly would bring back more colors!!
These are, essentially, a bit looser than leggings, but just as comfortable, with a nice crease detail on both the front and back to add a bit of put together class to a simple pant. GET THEM.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JCortez Luv them...
I ordered these pants for my trip to Hawaii. They are made really well, very thick and with the seam running down the leg, they do look like a nice pair of capri pants rather than just leggings.
The reason I am not giving 5 stars is I felt the XSMALL was a little tight, so I ordered the SMALL and it was too big so I was between sizes. I went on ahead and kept the XSMALL. As I wear them they tend to stretch which provides more room. I also had to get alterations to make them capri's because the legs were too long. I am 4'11 and weigh about 95 pds. Hope this review helped.
