Rated 5 out of 5áby JCTNYC Perfect Fit for Me
At 5'7 3/4" tall, 124 lbs., waist 26 1/4", hips 37 1/2', inseam 32", Size 8T fit me perfectly. However, the recommended measurements for Size 8 are 28 1/2" waist, 38 1/2" hips. Although my measurements are smaller than recommended, I wouldn't be comfortable in a smaller size. I washed these jeans in cold water and, as I do with all my clothes, hung them up to dry. They didn't shrink with line drying. I don't know if they will shrink when machine dried.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MidAtlanticMomma Perfect Fit for Fall...and winter
Since my weight runs between 100# and109#, I ordered this item in a Pet 6 and Pet 4. At this time, the Pet 6 fit so comfortably! With a pair of tights underneath, I was comfy and cozy. No "biting" waist or rise. P6 was a little loose in the thigh, but, hey, it's fall/winter and who cares...I was warm!

Rated 4 out of 5áby Ilikefunction PS - shrinkage after washing/drying
After washing/drying, these do shrink some overall and I found shrinkage in the length esp noticeable. I ordered the tallest inseam available (I'm only in the 5'8-5'9 range - not super tall by any stretch) and will not be able to wear these rolled-up at all as I had hoped. I didn't mention specific sizing in my other review - I had ordered a 10 and a 12, guessing that the 12 would be the best fit, but it was indeed the 10, which is my usual size for this and other vendors. I could've worn the 12 - they felt more "pajama-ish", but they looked slouchy on me. I can also wear a 10 in the straight version, so - if the waist on the relaxed fit doesn't work for you, you might try the straight version. I am a hip/thigh gal and didn't find the straight ones to be restricting in that area but they do seem a tad looser in the waist. The "relaxed" part of these pants is the thigh, not the waist, for which I am grateful.

Rated 1 out of 5áby LLforAZ button problem
I love these jeans and was very happy with the fit BUT when I went to wear them, I could not fasten the button. It is too close to a seam so there is not enough space for all of the material to get around the button. I need to return these. sigh

Rated 4 out of 5áby GFCFMamma nice & warm
So I got these for Christmas last year, but had to exchange them due to the size of the waist. I have what would be called an hourglass shape or curvy (small waist, larger in hips/butt/thigh/bust areas). But in my regular size- the waist was so tight I couldn't button them if I wanted to breath. Everything else fit great. I ended up going up a size because I really wanted a warm flannel lined jean for the winter. Now the waist fits fine, but everywhere else is really baggy- very strange. But I still recommend these for warmth. They are great when we go get our tree, when I'm outside with the kids or just going for a slow paced walk. Maybe LL Bean will make some changes to these jeans soon and I'll definitely order another pair!

Rated 4 out of 5áby Ilikefunction For pear/hourglass gals
Most every jean on the planet is made for an apple or rectangle-shaped body - let the pears and hourglasses or curvy gals of the world have some jeans that fit us!!! Plus, I assume most folks buy these for warmth, and a low rise may not be particularly warm. Yes, the rise is high and the waist kinda comes up to my ribs when I sit back. I would be just fine if the front rise was a little bit lower but these won't be sliding down my bum and the waist does not need to be readjusted - some people are shaped this way and appreciate a waist that does not gap open for a change! I will need to wear these with a longer top since esp when I sit down, there is a lot of fabric around the tummy area (not the waist - the tummy), but that is just fine for how I'll be using these. And I can't complain about pant legs that are roomy, esp if the fabric isn't stretchy..... In my repertoire, these are for warmth and function - not fashion. If you are an apple or a rectangle, these may not work for you, but I know other vendors who have similar items in a boyfriend shape but no curvy shape, so let us have this one.

Rated 3 out of 5áby ILGirl90 Horrible Sizing
After reading the reviews, I ordered a size 10 (since I usually wear an 8. Even when trying to wear them on my natural waist (the smallest part), I couldn't get them buttoned. I will be returning them for yet another size larger. They seemed comfy, and I don't care what size my tag says. I just can't believe how untrue to fit these jeans truly are! Hopefully the 12's will fit like an 8 should!

Rated 2 out of 5áby Kansasn Waist is too small
I am a petite person with a small waist. I ordered my first pair of flannel lined jeans and could not even zip them up. I reordered a size up and felt squeezed. I sent them back too. I was so looking forward to some comfy warm jeans for the winter but was very disappointed. LL Bean needs to readjust the waist on these!

Rated 5 out of 5áby OBXBeachGirl Warm jeans
Finally a pair of jeans that keep me warm. Both my daughter and I sized up to get the waist to fit which leaves a bit of room in the seat and thighs. Length worked for both of us as well. With this long cold winter and cool spring, I'm reaching for these more than I thought.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Whisperbird Real Cold Weather Jeans but Ran Small
I ordered a pair of these in a size 4 Petite (5', 107 lbs) but had to return them. The waist and rear were way too tight and uncomfortable. The length was perfect as was the overall quality. I returned for a size 6 Petite in the Straight Fit Double L Flannel Lined Jeans and they fit perfectly!! I have experienced no shrinkage in length but right out of the dryer the waist is a titch snug for a very short time. Would love to see these in Black and Dark Brown!!
