"Wore a fresh pair of chef pants everyday for three days in a row for an out in the Redwoods event. Pants were comfortable and did well in the extreme environment. Wish list: cargo pocket on both sides. Thanks Happy Chef!"

"I have these pants in small, ordered a Med because of weight gain, the med are cut strange, making them fit tight in the crotch."

"The quality of the material is good. It's the size that isn't correct the medium should be labeled small."

Wish there were more sizes!

"The pants are good, but I wish they went by number sizing - I am on the large side of medium and would be a bit more comfortable in a size between medium and large - large is just too big. "

"I almost returned the pants because of the very shiny look they had before I washed them. They looked almost shimmery and I hated it. But after the first wash they were perfect! Fit is great and love the pockets. Glad I didn't return them... I'll definitely be ordering more."

Low rise
Sep 28, 2017
"I love these pants with the exception of one thing. The length or the amount of material in a certain area is too short. I really don't like that they seem to sit so low on my hips. I think that is with all the women's fit. Other then wanting a little more room there I love these pants."

"These pants are very true to size, I would almost say that they run a little snug. I like that they have a cargo pocket on the leg but the rise is very short. I would suggest that is you buy these pants go up a size for comfort."
Louises, verified buyer
Runs small
May 05, 2017
"Runs small, I have to exchange for a larger size. Being women's they still are too long. "
Pants is tight

"For me it's too tight on my back area. My next one probably need to be a men style because if I use the next size going to be bigger (woman style) "

"Great job, Great quality, value and workmanship on the embroidery. Only drawback is it takes forever to come in due to backorders."

"Horrible fit. Extremely uncomfortable. I can't even think that a young woman that wears a thong would like these. First time I've been unhappy with something I bought from this company."

Great pants, but too long
Apr 14, 2018
"I love these pants. Only problem is they are WAYYYYYYY too long. I wish they would make them a tad shorter..and I am 5ft 5 and they are still too long on me."
great pants

"Love the fact that they are all cotton. Had a few pairs for 4 years and they just started to fall apart. Great quality and the sizes are spot on. These pants wash well, wear well, and stains wash away. Would not buy another pair of pants from anywhere else. Thanks Happy Chef!"

These pants run EXTREMELY small
Dec 07, 2017
"I bought a small for my teenage daughter who regularly wears a size 6. According to the size chart, size small is for sizes 6-8.
When they arrived I laughed. The pants could barely fit around my 9 year old son's waist!! I actually measured the width of the waistband and it is 11 inches wide.
Unless you are a stick figure, I suggest ordering at LEAST a medium."
Briana, verified buyer
Poor fit & runs small
Nov 10, 2017
"Changed from ordering unisex size to 'women's ' and the first pair arrived looked like it was a teen size so I returned & ordered up to next size. Replacement pair arrived today & was shocked at fit,
Low Rise actually means hip hugger & thong fit as the back seam & crotch area appears to be cut wrong!
Extremely disappointed and had to pay additional $ to return and was charged more for the larger size that does not fit either. Ditto to the length comment from another customer."

"I ordered these thinking they would fit a woman's shape, however, they were 5 inches too long (I'm 5'7), the waist came not quite up to my belly button, and they were very snug in the hips. I returned them and an waiting on my refund. "

"These pants are a nice quality. I'm not crazy about the fit. Being a chef means a lot of bending down low and the low rise on these pants can be annoying. I also feel the elastic in the waist is a bit tight."
Pastry, verified buyer
Great Design but...
Sep 27, 2017
"Only complaint is they are long legged and the waist is narrow. I fit in mediums but I order large in women's sweat pants normally so I can have them baggy...I ordered large in these women's chef pants and they are tight at the waist."
Patty, verified buyer
Order 2 sizes up
Aug 30, 2017
"I'm a size 2 in women's so it's hard to find chef pants to fit me. I used their side guide and ordered the XS. It's way too small on me, doesn't go up high enough and is very weird fitted on my crotch."

"Ordered several of these pants every year. Great fit. Glad Happy Chef makes cotton cargo style for women. Only thing is that I wish they would bring back the striped ones. Or maybe do a black and pink striped pair for Breast Cancer awareness month in October. "

Wrong sizing
Jun 06, 2017
"The pants are very cool, good price. The model does not fit very well. The size for me is usually Small but this pants have a really tight waist ( the elastic is to tight) and is very uncomfortable and short in the crotch area. I order a Medium size and it was the same thing but longer. "
Ely, verified buyer
Been wearing these pants for years!
May 29, 2017
"I've been cooking for almost 10 years and I've been re-purchasing these pants every since I started cooking because I love them so much. Some companies I work for have purchased other brands for me but they just don't compare to the fit and comfort of the happy chef ones. I also really like the large Velcro pocket on the side and the back pocket. Great quality of material. They have a nice lady fit as well not too tight but not too baggy or long. "
Farrah, verified buyer

Runs small, bad material
Mar 26, 2018
"Runs super small, the chart says I'd be an extra small but I should have gotten a medium. Also one of the pockets ripped after a week."

"I love the material of the pants and that they stay up on their own. But they ride up in my crotch. They are also long and I am a short female. So I had to get 6in tailored off. Can no chef pant come in a petite height!?!"
Very comfortable, but too low rise for me.
Sep 18, 2017
"While these pants are very comfortable they are too low rise for me so I'm very conscious always bending over especially in the kitchen."
Shallman, verified buyer
Good price but wished they lasted a bit longer.
Aug 24, 2017
"So I bought two pairs on these pants about 8 months ago. The price seemed very reasonable and I had no problem with the shipping. The fabric is comfortable and lightweight so its great for kitchen environments. Love the extra pocket. Was a bit tight on me. Very slightly shrink in the wash. I am a size 16 and ordered a large so I would definitely encourage to order a size up. I was hoping these would at least last a year, but after 8 months the inseam is wearing and tearing. Not too bad for the price though. I would probably order these again. "
Budget friendly
