Rated 5 out of 5 by Chicstyleplus 'My First Pair'
My first pair and they arrived today..I am 5'2" and slim,I have whatever height I have in my legs.Sometimes a Regular will work for me as I require the length for shoes with heels...I bought a Pet. small and the fit is almost perfect..perhaps an xs would have been just right..?? The waistband is not sewn down,just here and there along the band, and I don't know why??..this is no bother to me as long as it stays firm and together..The material is very soft and I checked to see how much cotton was in the fabric..quite a lot.90% cotton and 10% Lycra.. the fabric feels thin and there are no pockets which I like to have in my pants mostly and skirts as well....I chose the different colour deep water blue,very different shade..I would like grey or a different indigo blue..I do not understand all the negative comments, really???So,please do not bother me with a negative comment as I have been clear and honest with my review..Thank you L.L.Bean...I like my new,well-fitted pants..

Rated 5 out of 5 by rnelissen These are the Perfect Fit Pants
I love these pants! I am 5'11" and wear a size 18 or 20 depending on the garment. It is very difficult for me to find pants that are long enough but not so long that they drag on the ground. the length of these pants is perfect for me. Even if I wear heels (not high heels) the pants are still perfect for me. The rise is perfect and the waist fits where my waist is. The only drawback is no pockets. Since I wear mostly jeans I miss the pockets, but these pants are so comfortable I am willing to make that concession. I will definitely be buying more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LargerSizeShopper Great pants!
These are indeed "perfect fit," in the plus sizes at least--big enough in the waist/hips, but do not flap or bag around the legs, as ALL others have. And (pleasant surprise!) the waist is actually high enough for the average-to-long bodied woman. No tummy bulge over the waist line! I've ordered twice already, and plan on more for summer. Keep them coming!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Savonniere Interesting Waistband
Have just received these pants so haven't washed them yet to see what will happen to the waistband that isn't sewn down, only tacked at the seam lines. You can literally flip up the waistband and see the elastic. I've never seen this type of construction before but I guess it is fast to make and cheap. Much easier than making a separate waistband.

Rated 2 out of 5 by housewife50 petite
I ordered these pants in the petite, because to me petite means shorter in the body as well as the leg. Obviously it doesn't mean the same to LLBean though, because these pants came up to my bra in front. They fit like maternity pants. I had to send them back.
They are a nice fabric and I like the design of the waistband, but please, make petites for short-waisted people!

Rated 1 out of 5 by BUTLER LL Bean should pull this from their product line
I'm deeply disappointed that LL Bean would even think of selling this product since the pants were very poorly made. The gray pants (I appreciated the color & style) were never completely nor properly finished. For shame on the LL Bean buyers who approved of this item to be included in their clothing collection.
Though purchased on-line I am going to be returning them to the Dedham store for a refund since they were shoddily made. The material looked & felt like something you would wear to a gym to exercise in.

Rated 3 out of 5 by OMCAJoan Ouch! No Pockets!
I can't LIVE without pockets! I love the fit, the fabric, the length of these pants--but will be grumpy every time I put them on. I thought I'd wear them for travel but pockets are essential then, for my room key/card. Now I'll wear them only for walking or housework. Maybe we all look better without pockets, but we're happier with them.(And I do wonder why you didn't tack down the waistband.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by jackiemyboy Black Pants for Work
I was very disappointed with the fit on these so called "slim fit" pants. The pants were very baggy through the hips and thighs. Rise felt a bit short so sizing down a size might not work for me.
I used the excellent L L Bean return policy to send the pants back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CrazyGardener Perfect fit pants slim
This pant runs larger than expected for petite large size and somewhat short or shrunk after I washed it. As I washed it and wore twice, I did not return it. I am using it as a sleepwear. Disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by southerntierny too long
I ordered XL Petite in both the Perfect Fit Bootcut Misses and
Perfect Fit Slim Misses - the Bootcut in Indigo was the
right length - the Slim in Gray Heather was 3 inches too long.
Soft material and nice color in both.
Don't know why the diff in length. Sending back the Slim.&
ordering another color in Bootcut.
