Rated 2 out of 5 by PirateLady Sizing has changed
I've been wearing these jeans for years but the last pair I ordered was sized differently from the others....the waist is too small and the hips too baggy. Face it LLBean. The women who are ordering these jeans are more mature and their hips are not as perky as the young girls. Their waists have stretched out to have babies and you have ruined a good fitting pair of jeans by trying to make the size more like a young girl. Go back to your old sizing...the one that actually fits mature women.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FoundSomeGreatJeans Perfect for Small Waisted Women
When I find jeans that fit my hips & butt, the waist is usually GIGANTIC with a Grand Canyon gap at the back,even those claiming "curvy fit". Thank goodness someone still makes jeans for smaller waisted yet hippy women! Thank you! Thank you! For all the people who are complaining about the tight waist, there are millions of other styles for you. LL Bean, please don't change or discontinue these. I will be a customer for life.

Rated 3 out of 5 by OldFran Nice color...
I was looking for ultrawash color jeans in the winter and found these. As I have lost weight recently, I decided to follow the size chart for a change, and it told me that size 20 petite was me. The good news is that they fit perfectly around the waist. The bad news is that although I am not exactly thin in the butt or leg department, these jeans have volumes of extra fabric. The fabric is heavy. I live in Florida. Although most folks would really like this fabric, I would have preferred to have something lighter. The petite size doesn't seem to be particularly short i the rise, so I have some extra there as well. On the plus side, they are comfortable and just the right color. Next time I'll try for something slightly smaller, perhaps with a "comfort" waist.

I've ordered jeans from LL Bean before but this pair is by far the tightest waist. I normally wear a size 10 and a recently ordered pair that lists"favorite fit" on the label was perfect. This one which lists "original fit - relaxed", however, is definitely not and is headed back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JEA123 Comfortable
I have been buying these jeans for years and loved them. They are comfortable.
The complaint I have with these jeans is that even after washing several times the dye has come off on my white winter coat. I have to wash my coat to see if it comes out. Thankfully it is on the inside of the coat. This has never happened before!!!
I have to have my jeans shortened but I have to do that for all my pants. But with the increase in the price I may have to reconsider this purchase. Usually I buy 4 pair at a time.
With the increase in the price of the jeans they are getting to expensive to buy and have hemmed. SO I MAY BE LOOKNG ELSEWHERE FOR MY JEANS.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ChevEq Disappointed
I have been buying items from LL Bean for about 10 years now. I have noticed lately that the sizing is not what it use to be. I could depend on LL Bean for true sizing before, but not now. I like to buy the Double L jeans in the tall because I need the length in the rise. You no longer sell them. Also I would buy the relaxed long sleeve shirts for women in a large, now I need to buy XL. and the way it looks I may need to buy the 1XL. I guess it's time to look elsewhere for my jeans and shirts. Too bad!

Rated 2 out of 5 by LynneTW Faded in wash
Great fit; horrible result after washing. My old black jeans were very faded so I was thrilled to open these jeans and try them on to a perfect fit. However, after one washing the black became streaked. I don't use bleach so I knew that could not be the problem, but I thought perhaps some of the detergent did not rinse out. But no, after two more washings they are still streaked. This is my second recent purchase from LL Bean in which I am horribly disappointed. I have disposed of the return packing or they would be coming back pronto. Starting to wonder if LL Bean has lost its quality. I need black jeans, but I'm afraid to order another pair.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Pandra Sized like clown pants
I measured myself and according to the size chart, I should order a size 14. I like to go a size bigger in jeans, so I ordered a size 16. They fit perfectly, except in the waist which was far too tight. Looking at other reviews, I see a lot of ladies have this problem. I don't trip about what the size of my jeans are, so I ordered these jeans in size 20. The waist fit perfectly and below the waist they're like clown pants. Huge, baggy, fluttering on me clown pants. What a disappointment-the material is substantial, the workmanship is good, sturdy zipper, rivets, everything I want in jeans, except for the huge size of them. Why doesn't LL Bean do something about these weird pants? They used to make such good jeans.

100 % cotton jeans I've been looking for for ages, Fit great except for waist which was way too tight. Returned them. Got relaxed fit which was huge. Also returned. Still looking for 100% cotton jeans that fit well.
