Lena railroad stripe wide leg pant
Pretty good choice
I am usually prepared to not even find pants that fit me well but these fit great. I have overly large thighs and calves and never even try pants unless they are wide leg which these are. When I first tried them on they were too long but I washed before wearing and then they shrunk to the perfect length. Now normally this is not a good thing and would make me hate the pants but in this case it saved a trip to the tailor. The waist is too big for me which common as apparently not retailer thinks you can have a pear shape anymore. But with a belt I can make it work. I did try the previous black Lena wide legs and although they fit, the material is not at all forgiving if you have any kinds of lumps or bumps. Another memo.... plus size ladies need fabrics that will not drape in ways to show all the bumps. These pinstripe pants are of a fabric that is more forgiving with this. Make more things like this please. This is the first successful pants purchase from LB in years since they have moved to all things skinny legged.

Bummed about the fit
Purchased these pants in a size bigger than my last Lafayette (!) style pants, which are a little snug these days. However, the Lena fit very poorly, very tight over the lower abdomen/groin/butt regions and the length was too long, even though I usually buy regular and wear heels.
