Rated 5 out of 5 by coldlover Perfect fit for me!
I addressed the waist by sewing it down by machine wherever the stitches wouldn't show. Now I have ease of on and off. The slim fit is just what I wanted and it worked on my not-so-slim legs. They wash nicely, no ironing required except at the bottom hem. I'll be back for another color soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AlwaysGoingSomewhere Bring back Perfect Fit Pants Slim in Women's!
These pants have been a staple in my wardrobe for years. The fabric and fit have always been perfect. I see that Slim is now not available in Women's sizes. Please bring them back!

I have bought and worn LLBean pants for over 40 years. This is the first time I received pants without pockets. Also the waistband is not sewn down. They are going back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CynAnn Womens knit pants.
I have several pairs of the fuller legged knit pants. I wanted something more tapered. I'm short, and wearing longer tops with fuller-legged pants makes me look dumpy! These don't do that. I really like the fit of these pants - except....I think they would definitely fit better on someone with a flat stomach! On me, the inseam wants to pucker a bit, but wearing a longer top solves that problem. Overall, they are great pants. I ordered petite - I'm 5'2", and they fit fine. I bought three pairs and took them on a twenty-day tour of Scandinavia. Very comfortable and appropriate in most situations. Only thing that would make them better is to be quick-drying!

When I first tried on these pants, they were so baggy I thought I'd just have to wear them for sleeping in the winter. But I took a chance and washed and dried them on high heat. That did the trick. For once, shrinking my clothes was a good thing. Now they fit well enough to wear to yoga. Very comfortable and stretchy, and so far they have kept their shape. The material feels really soft. I'm usually a size 2 or 4, and I got the x small. They're a little loose, which is how I like my clothes. Checking the LL Bean sales twice a day finally paid off, since I got these at a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NHGlove I am convinced this pants are indestructible!
I wear these pants 3 seasons of the year. I love them. They wash beautifully, go into the dryer without shrinking, don't lose their color with age and are the most comfortable pants I've ever worn.
The slim leg look great with a tunic. Someone my age and size would look ridiculous wearing leggings but these pants are just slim enough to make my tunics look more stylish.
In late February, following one of our snow/ice storms, I went out to start the car to warm it up before I went on my way. Yes, that's wimpy but the windchill factor was very low. As I went around the car, I foolishly forgot that there was black-ice on the ground and I gracefully (not!) fell and badly sprained both the inside and outside of my ankle. I also got one of the deepest gashes in my knee I've ever gotten. It outdid all the gashes I'd gotten during childhood.
Since it was on my knee and was constantly being flexed, the cut was bad enough to become ulcerated. I go into detail not to bore you, since many people fell down hard on hot top this winter, but because I left out the most amazing part of my story. I was wearing a pair of black slim Perfect Fit pants. They didn't get a tear in them, nor did they become discolored. In fact, later, when the dust had settled, I couldn't tell which pair I had on because the knees of all the pants are completely wear-free.
Now if that isn't a tribute to these fine pants, I don't what is!
Thanks, LL Bean!

Rated 2 out of 5 by HamsterLover Perfect fit??? Not for me!
Bring back the fly front! I have a couple of the old version of these with the fly front, and those fit much better. Even the slim leg pants drape in an unflattering way at the crotch. Like other reviewers, I don't like the fact that the waistband isn't completely sewn on, leaving gaps.

Rated 3 out of 5 by yourmajesty Oversized on hips
nice fabric, but these do not fit a typical large unless you have big hips. I normally wear a size 14 Bean pant but this pair of large (14-16) would fit an extra large (16-18). perhaps order down a size. these ones are going back.

dissapointed that the waist line was not completely sewn in, just tacked in spots. Also wish there were pockets. Fit is fine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PSShopper "Fold-over" waistband not for me
Let me first say that I love Perfect Fit pants. I usually buy the straight leg style. They are so comfortable & perfect for traveling. I thought I'd try the Slim Fit even tho I'm a woman of size. When I received my pants, I was surprised to see that the waistband was not sewn down except at the seams. I sent it back, thinking that somehow this flaw had been missed in inspection. My next pair were the same. I called Customer Service - so helpful! - & found out that this was, indeed, the way the pants were supposed to be. I was so disappointed because the pants fit very nicely otherwise. Since I have my own "folds" at my waist, the band continually flipped over & twisted. I was relieved to find out that the Slim Fit is the only style with this kind of waistband.
So, it's back to straight leg for me or if I buy another Slim pair, I'll have to take them to a tailor & have the waistband sewn down. Dear LLBean - don't EVER put the fold-over waistband on the straight leg or the cropped styles - PLEASE!
