Rated 1 out of 5 by IndianaFan Too short, tight waist, huge legs
These jeans are just a mess. I was excited to see 100% denim jeans with a high rise. However, I have ordered three pairs in three different sizes--12 petite, 14 regular, and 14 relaxed-- and have had to send them all back. The waist is tight, while the legs are huge, like clown pants as another reviewer said. The waist seems way out of proportion to the legs in all of the sizes I tried. And the petites were very short, much shorter than the length stated on the web site. I always wear petite pants and jeans but these were terribly short. I would love to buy several pairs of these jeans, but LL Bean needs to whip its supplier in shape so that they will fit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DebraL Thighs are not "slightly fitted"
I have to send these two pairs back. The price was great. I liked the medium weight cotton denim fabric. The size 12 regular was good for my 5'3" height, but tight on my 31" waist, and so huge on my thighs that they looked wide-leg style.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Countrydogwalker Straight Leg Jeans
These jeans fit fairly well except the length is too short and the rise is too short. I ordered petite but then reordered a regular. The regular was a better fit and only about an inch too long but better than too short. The waist is loose on me but I have a small waist and bigger hips. I think they need to lengthen the leg and rise in the petite and probably all lengths need to be adjusted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CottonJeansFTW Love them!
Thank you, finally found 100% cotton jeans that come up to my waist and do not look too much like mom jeans. So nice to have found an antidote to the then, low-rise, spandex "jeans" offered by most stores today. Please do not discontinue!

Rated 4 out of 5 by scottsmomtoo waist tight, rise perfect
Love these jeans, they usually fit great and wear well.
Own three pair, all same size, bought new pair last week and the waist is tight. I wear only Original fit (slightly above the waist,) and these used to fit perfectly in waist, hips and thigh. What changed?
Also wish LL Bean would offer colors besides stonewashed, need to update colors, something darker and maybe a black would be nice.
Four stars because of the too tight waist and I have not gained weight.(going up one size is too big everywhere else.)

Rated 3 out of 5 by USACDN Size is off, runs small
I currently wear other jeans in size ranges generally from 8-10 that I take. The 12 petite fits best from the 10 and 12 choices in the LLBeans, but run a bit short. I never can tell any more which size to order in your jeans - they used to be consistent. They still stand up well however.
I wish LLBean would go back to making their clothes in the USA. Your sizing is no longer consistent, nor is the length in various styles. It would be worth the extra $. More and more I have to keep sending items back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hello7 Real Jeans
These are good thick jeans with character. I love the thick denim with no Lycra. One reviewer who also liked this mentioned how she tailored them by taking out material from the sides, which I would love to do if I could sew and had a machine. Apparently this retailoring worked to good effect.
I like good materials and classic styling when I can find it, which is getting more difficult. LL' s price is also good compared to formerly modestly priced competitors. Their own higher priced jeans are made of thin, scratchy awful denim blend that can't hold a candle to these jeans. Skinny jeans look silly on me anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by slower Great fit for me with waist just right
Great I have these in black and in blue and yes I would buy again.
The fit is just right for me. Waist is not so low as some pants.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DPicMeyer Not what they used to be.
Looking for classic denim jean - without spandex. Used to buy my jeans from LL Bean. Still wearing some from many years ago. Seems the style has changed. I have a curvy rear and these jeans no longer fit my figure. Too tight in the hip and thigh and rear. Quite disappointed.
