Rated 5 out of 5 by Gunta These are perfect!!!
I was afraid these would be too small in the waist because I have a large waist (40") but surprisingly, they fit in the waist & perfectly in the hips & legs. I usually wear 34" inseam & the Tall were long enough to roll up a cuff at the bottom & looked good if I didn't want a cuff.

I was sooo looking forward to receiving these jeans! I ordered an 8 petite deciding to "take a shot" and see if they would fit. Just like a lot of the reviewers the waist was way too tight. Even if I had ordered a 10 the hips would have been way too big, because the pair I got were too loose! These must be designed for the small waisted, large hip women from the 40's and 50's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2LoveBeans Great Jeans and warm!
I only wear jeans when it is bitterly cold. These are flannel lined wonders! Really break the wind and cold, keeping you warm and ready.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Curlieq20 Don't like the way they fit... they're too tight.
I wanted to get these jeans for working outside, and for sports/recreation outside during the fall/winter. About ten years ago I had purchased a flannel lined pair (not from LL Bean), and was expecting them to be similar. This was my first time ordering jeans from LL Bean (probably the last). I had ordered a size up from my normal size thinking that I would have some wiggle room in the waist. This was not the case, it was way too tight. I returned that pair and had to order two sizes up from my normal waist size. The legs are really baggy. And the waist goes up really high (hides my belly button). Every time I sit I have to roll the waist band down, otherwise I can't breath. Length is pretty good, and depending on the shoes I wear with them, I will roll up the bottoms. I don't really notice a difference in being warmer. I think the flannel is pretty thin. I really don't care for the way they fit, and I am debating about returning them. I personally would not recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by augrsdl Warm and comfortable
I have both the flannel and fleece lined versions of these well made jeans. The fleece ones are warmer, softer against my skin and dry faster. Because the size 4 is the smallest size offered, this is the size I buy. Although they are baggy all over, that suits me just fine for both outside and inside work and play on cold New England days. If Bean's made these in a size 2, I 'd buy that size. When I want to be a fashionista I'll wear my size 0 skinny jeans but when I want comfort and warmth these are my go to jeans.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ClemintineM Order one or two sizes bigger.
I was super excited to get these pants because it's cold in our office. My normal size is a 6 or 8, depending on the company I buy from. These would have been my first pair of jeans from LL Bean and I never read the reviews for this one purchase, as I ALWAYS read the reviews. My loss :( , they are very small in the waist and I even got the size 8. Even if I had read the reviews, I still would have bought the size 8 thinking they would fit perfect since they run small.
Other then the small waist, that is pretty tight, the fit is fine in the legs and the length. I'm still keeping them thought. I'll just need to run a few extra miles if I want to feel comfortable in them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NorthsoundWalker Comfortable jeans that fit me
I love these lined jeans.
I usually wear size 8 or 10 petite or regular but since my
Choice was sold out I ordered 10 med.tall.
These jeans have a waist that fits me-- no more gaping- hooray!
The hip / thighs are relaxed as described but that makes them very comfortable for winter, especially with the warm flannel
lining. The length was long for me , however, I turn them up to
Show the red plaid lining.
I can understand they might not work for all figures but they are
just what I wanted.

Love the jeans, but I always have to buy one size bigger which makes the legs loose because the waist is too tight on my normal size and also a little snug on one size up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Vanessa51 Fit perfect - except the waist
These fit perfectly, except the waist is way too small. I am pear shaped, so I thought from other comments that these would fit me fine, but not so. I have other size 8 lined pants from LL Bean that fit perfectly on the waist. There needs to be some quality control.

Alas, these pants, which I ordered a size smaller than usual, had to be returned due to the unusually large/baggy fit of the legs. The waist fit comfortably, neither tight nor loose, with room for tucking in a flannel shirt.
However, the legs were very very baggy. I am 5 ft 2 in, 105 lbs, with minimal hips. I ordered size 6. I suspect the 4 will be too small for my waist.
I realize that denim lined with flannel will result in a thicker product, but am not clear why there cannot be a narrower width on the legs.
