Rated 5 out of 5 by wannaBhomesteader FANTASTIC tights! Lasted 2 yrs & still look great!
I bought 3 pairs of these tights for school. My daughter wore them for 2 years, each pair were worn at least once a week and they are in great condition. Through all the rain, snow, mud and dirt, they washed clean without stains or holes. She is outgrowing them! She might be able to still wear them this fall as the weather turns cool - it depends on how much more she grows this summer. I am ordering 3 larger pair for her and another smaller set for her little sister who is starting school. These are hand-me-down worthy!

These tights are excellent. My daughter wears them every day as a part of her school uniform. Durable and comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MontanaSailor Warm and comfy
Our little girl (age 7, 47 lbs. tall and slim) loves to wear dresses to church, even in winter. It is hard to get tights that are comfortable because she is slim and tall. These tights are long enough and just right in the waist. The are heavy and very warm. She has both the cream and the navy and wears each without complaint. If there were more solid colors, she would have those too.

We really love these tights. They are so durable, I can pass them down to the second daughter. L.L. Bean- PLEASE, PLEASE make them in a few more solid colors - in particular, we would love a bright white option for school uniforms. The children are not allowed to wear cream with their uniform, only white and navy blue. PLEASE make them in white! The navy blue L.L. Bean tights hold up so much better than our pairs of white in a different brand.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nata1980 Large!
I bought 2 tights for my daughter (4 years old): 4T and 4S sizes. 4T (toddler) is OK and 4S (little kids) is very large, I think it can fit even 10-year old. Why is there such a big difference between 4T and 4S???

Rated 4 out of 5 by adkny sturdy but gigantic
These are VERY well made tights....they may even survive to be passed down from one daughter to the next! They run VERY large, though.....I bought the 10/12 for my 11 year old, and she needed to hand them UP to her 16 year old sister (who is five feet tall, 125 pounds!). The polka dot pattern does not go the whole way down to the feet, so the tights will only look right with boots....

Rated 4 out of 5 by NovaScotiaLLBeanFan Super cute and thick - problem with waistband
We've had a pair of these before to go with an LL Bean dress, so purchased another set this year in the lilac. Adorable, love them, super thick, comfy tights for my little girl. I love them and that they match the dresses so well - makes for very cute, easy outfits.
Unfortunately, we washed these tights once on the gentle cycle, and the waistband elastic has folded over and got a bit mangled. I can't straighten it out - it's not a huge problem, but disappointing, because it doesn't look very comfortable for my daughter (kind of bunches on her tummy#.
I washed our other pair countless times #she wore them for 2 years, and they still looked new!#. So not sure if this pair was a dud, but something wasn't stitched in place properly.
I do recommend these tights though - they are super cute, and we buy from other top name stores, and these tights are far superior. They don't pill, they don't wear out, they keep their colour, and don't fade - I love them. They are cut more for a child's body I find than most tights - I know they are super comfortable.
I live in Canada, otherwise I would exchange the tights #I know LL Bean has a great return/exchange policy) but would cost me more to mail back than it's worth so won't bother. Hopefully it was just this pair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ophie68 Great Tights
These are by far the best tights around. My daughter needs navy for her school uniform and I tried other brands before trying LLBean. They wash well and are durable. Just checked my records and the last pair I ordered were almost a year ago. That's how long they've lasted and she wears them everyday starting in Oct till about beginning of May. They are well worth the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Canadienne Navy tights
Best tights for school-uniform. We've been buying these tights in navy for the last four years for my daughter's school uniform. They are truly the best tights - rugged, well-made, stay put on the waist all through the day, don't fade, very comfortable to wear and last through the whole school year. If LLB goes back to making girls knee-highs and socks using the same knit material, we will buy them all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OntLLBeanShopper Thick, good size, EASIER to put on, good buy.
Pleasantly surprised by how much better these are than other tights we've bought from other name-brand stores of similar price-point. These are thicker, and better sized (large enough without being bunchy), but it means my young daughter can put them on herself...priceless! (Other tights are a struggle, these seem easier to put on. Bought up a size just to be sure, but lots and lots of room to grow.
