Rated 2 out of 5 by RaindropsOnRhodies No longer a "perfect fit"
I ordered the Petite Large in black. They were the right size but the cut was terrible -- uncomfortable and extremely unflattering.
They suck in around all the bulges and even though the rise is perfect in the front, it sits really low and gapes in the back.
I got out the pair I bought a few years ago and compared them. The older pair, which I love, love, love is also a petite large in black. They fit like a dream and I've worn them so much they're starting to wear out. The huge difference between the old pair and the new pair is in the back seam length. The old ones have the back seam a full 5 1/2 inches longer than the front seam. This allows for a lady's butt being a lot fuller than her stomach. The new pair has a back seam that is only 2 inches longer than the front. This just doesn't cut it!!! How can they be a "perfect fit" when they are no longer cut the way they were when they were perfect?
I found the fabric to be fine even though it has also changed from before --- might even be better for shape retention. That's why I gave them 2 stars instead of just 1.
So disappointed! It's hard to find any manufacturers anymore who understand the importance of cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pdanne So comfortable!
Just received these to wear to work and I feel like I'm wearing pajamas today. The description is correct, they do not cling and are very comfortable. I LOVE that they DO NOT have pockets! I wish more styles did not have them. Also wish they had a khaki color but still love the pair I bought. Looks like I'll be ordering more of these!

These are by far the most comfortable, best fit pant I have ever worn or bought from other brands. I immediately ordered a second pair and can't wait for them to arrive. L.L.Bean is tops in quality and I own a lot of their clothing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MTom Best feature - NO POCKETS!!! Yippee!!!
They fit perfectly and lie flat against body due to no pockets. Love them. Will definitely order more! Why add bulk with pockets anyway!

Rated 5 out of 5 by hjwh I love these pants
I buy several pairs of these in black every year and I keep my eye open for other colors that appeal to me. They fit well, feel good, look good for casual or casual-dressy wear. But oh how I miss 'true indigo'. My favorite color. Please bring it back.

I love these pants! They fit well. They are a combination of casual and you can dress them up with a nice shirt and shoes too. Great for everyday wear and travel. I bought one pair to see how I liked it and am now ready to order more. I agree with the other reviews. Need more colors. They wash well also. I don't place mine in the dryer. Just line dry and I don't have to iron them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lexbelle Wide at the Hips
I have a pair of these from several years ago that were perfect (comfortable, durable, flattering) so I ordered another to replace them. I wore the old ones everywhere, even on casual days at the office! But LLBean changed the cut so the hips are now too big. The fabric also feels different (heavier, not as soft). Urgh.

Please don't stop making these wonderful pants. The fit (not baggy, not tight) and the bootcut legs are very flattering for my 63 year-old, short, pear-shaped body. The rise is perfect, right at the waist. Definitely not frumpy.The pants last a long time too.
I'm 5'3", and used to buy the Petite Length. Because the length can shrink just a little over time, I now buy the regular length. They aren't really too long with my cross-training shoes.
I wouldn't add pockets unless they can be made to lie very flat, and not add bulk to the sides of the hips.
Thank you for continuing to sell these pants for those of us who can't wear those form-fitting, low-rise yoga pants!
