Rated 1 out of 5 by Begunter Poor quality fabric
I've read other reviews with similar thoughts. I purchased these slacks a few years ago.My favorites!! The fabric Now is cheap and really flimsey(purchased 3 recently) I can hardly iron them to look good as they are flimsy, stretchy pajama material. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fanny Really a Perfect Fit!
I love these pants. I am 5' 1" and 112#. Size XS Petite fits great. They are plenty long for my short legs, but I did not have to alter them. The fit is very flattering. They are slender looking, but not tight. I ordered the same style pants from other sites, and these were by far the nicest. I did not want a legging look, but more of a form fitting pant. The waist is too high to tuck in a shirt, but with the shirt on the outside, you have no bumpy, lumpy zipper, belt, or fastener to show. The front looks very smooth.

Especially for our tending-to-warmer climate these will be very good pants indeed. On really cold days I can add tights. I do think that in colder places they would be more a three-season pant. I have skinny legs, so finding a pant that actually fits me is difficult, with baggy seats and thighs common. A "slim fit" is my normal, and for the body type these are great. Thank you, LLB.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBinKS LOVE THESE! Even with my peculiar shape!
So I ordered these expecting to be disappointed, as I usually am with anything labeled "slim fit". WOW - what a surprise! I am 5'7" and usually wear a large (size 14)...the size large in these pants are perfect!
I have a peculiar shape, very big hip bones (but without a lot of padding in the back) - almost every single pair of pants I purchase to fit my larger hips and thick thighs GAPE inches in the waist...or creep up to my natural waist making them inches short in the leg length. These are absolutely perfect, just ordered a 2nd pair.
THANK YOU LLB for making clothing that is flexible enough to fit us ladies without a pencil-thin model figure!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Genevra Odd fit
Very unattractive, and uncomfortable.I am usually very satisfied with LL Bean's products, but these pants were really odd. The waistband in these pants is not stitched in, but open at the bottom, allowing it to "float", twisting and shifting on your waist as you move. I was constantly adjusting it, which was particularly problematic due to the enormously high rise on these pants. The waist literally came up to the base of my rib cage! My daughter called them my "Steve Urkel Pants", and I'm sorry to say that was pretty accurate. It is expensive to return LL Bean merchandise from Canada, so I just kept them for about a year hoping that I would find some use for them. Finally, I just gave them away. I do not recommend them to anyone, of any shape or size. Believe me, despite their highly ironic name they are anything but a Perfect Fit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mathladyshopper Nice quality, but too much like sweat pants.
I received a black and a navy pair yesterday. They seem to be high quality but fit me like sweat pants. I am 5'8'' and weigh 133, but I carry more of my weight in my thighs. I wear a 6 in dress size but often larger in pants. I ordered small, but they are baggy all over and sag at the butt. I had hoped to wear them outside the house. I am not sure yet whether to keep them just to wear to the gym or for yard work, or to return them, or to exchange them for an XS (I am definitely not XS in general!). I may call to ask for advice from a representative, and if I have success, I may write an update, if that is allowed.

These are more like straight leg pants. If you're looking for slim pants, go elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BirdLady Great Pants!!
I love these pants! I have four pair in x-small petite and they are perfect. They wash and dry beautifully and keep their shape no matter what I am doing. These pants are so versatile that I wear them for everything from working out to church to going out to dinner. I did not find any of the problems mentioned by some of the other reviewers. I'm especially happy with the waistband, which is nice and smooth and flat. An LLBean competitor makes a pant like this but I find the elastic waist on theirs to be bunchy and bulky. These do not look like pull-on pants at all. Thanks LLBean!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Fiffle Very disappointing
After seeing a friend wearing an older pair of these pants, I bought 4 pair in black/size small (I am 5'5", 117#), hoping they would prove to be my "dream pants". Instead, I found them to be very inconsistent in sizing, with only one pair that even came close to fitting. They were oddly loose in the thighs, hips and lower legs (despite being described as slim fit) and were somewhat long and dumpy looking. The fabric was quite thin and while the label stated 90% cotton/10% lycra, they felt like fairly cheap polyester. After wearing a pair for just a few minutes, they sagged and looked even worse. I returned the pants and will probably avoid ordering from this company in the future as a result.

Rated 4 out of 5 by maryla Great pants, but fit uneven
I ordered the perfect fit, slim, misses extra small in brown, muted blue, and black. I have ordered these before. I find that only the black is consistent in its sizing. The extra small slim in brown and blue are too big and look baggy in the seat. The black fits perfectly. Sounds crazy, but it's been my experience twice.
