Rated 3 out of 5 by EllasMum Comfy, but should have ordered a size down.
My only disappointment with these knit jeans is that they kind of "grow" and get a bit baggy in some places--specifically the waist. I recommend ordering a size down, as I'll do in future. Unfortunately, I already went ahead and washed them so can't return at this point.
Other than the sizing, these jeans are super comfy, and I'd love to own another pair in the right size.

Love these pants! I have the indigo, but plan on getting the black soon! Wish they were offered in khaki or sand.

Rated 2 out of 5 by eshopper99 Comfy, but made for skinny women
I?m returning these stretch jeans to you because of the way they fit around the tummy. When I received them I tried one pair on and they felt so comfortable I was sure I?d be keeping them. The instructions on the darker colours said to wash them before wearing them so there are 3 pair enclosed that do not have the bags they came in.
It was only after wearing one of the pairs for a few hours that I noticed how much more prominent my tummy looked, and how the flap over the fly tended to stick out. I don?t wear my shirts tucked in but even with a tunic top on, my stomach became my most prominent feature. There isn?t a woman in the world that wants her stomach to stick out worse than it is, but that?s what these jeans do. At 140 lbs I'm slightly overweight, so I can imagine what these would look like on a woman of larger proportions.
It is unfortunate because these are the most comfortable jeans I?ve ever worn. If the manufacturer who makes these for you changed one little thing in the design, you?d have the perfect jeans. A lot of jeans manufacturers now make sure the front pockets come all the way over to the fly and are sewn in to the fly itself. This gives a bit of tummy control and would probably prevent the tendency of these jeans to stick out in front.

Comfort Knit Jeans. I am disappointed in the style of these straight leg knit jeans. The length is great (I am 5-4", the fit is good, plus size 18, but the lower leg of theses jeans are wide and floppy - seriously - my ankles are not as wide as my thighs!! They are going back, love knit jeans from other manufacturers, hope LL Bean will improve these.

Rated 5 out of 5 Wear them ALL the time!
I love these knit jeans. I have all the colors offered except white and I really wish LL Bean would add a tan or camel color. I would buy two pair right away. I live in these pants!

Rated 5 out of 5 by dogmom4 Best-fitting jeans I've found
I have a hard time finding pants that fit well through the hips but don't gap at the waist (I'm small-waisted with somewhat wide hips). These are the best I've found. They've become my favorite pants: they look good, fit well, and wash well. The stretch in the fabric keeps them nice-looking all day.

Received my new pants today, tried it on before washing as suggested on label. Am still debating whether to return it. When will
LL Bean return to making pants,skirts with useable pockets? I do
not carry a purse when working/walking my dog and need pockets
deep enough to carry keys, cellphone and some tissue.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Audriina So close to being the best jeans ever!
I am (almost) in love! These jeans are a dream in so many ways. The positive--fabric as soft as can be, looks exactly like denim, feels like you are wearing sweatpants they are so incredibly comfortable. I also love the fit. Though they do stretch out a bit the fit overall is close in the hips and thighs. Love that, I don't like billowing jeans. The problems--way, way too short. I am only 5'5" and I could use another 1-2 inches. I hesitate to wear these as I am a bit embarrassed of their length. They also do stretch out quickly after first putting them on. The size 12 I wear go on and fit beautifully but soon after look more like a size 13. The waist and placket are a bit thick and those two areas are not where you want "thick". I wear my shirts over my waist, not tucked in, so that I can ignore. The placket is more of a problem because it adds inches to your tummy giving me pooch where I don't have pooch--not good. These would be great year round jeans but because of the need to cover up the hip area (waist/abdomen) I will likely not wear them in warmer weather as I wouldn't be able to easily cover up the problem areas. Please LL Bean, these are as near to dream jeans as I've ever seen. Please make a few changes and keep them coming.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JeanJunky Good but not perfect.
I'm 5'4 and usually get petite but these came to just above the ankle after washing. So just a tad short as to not look cool. Also a tad thin and can get a small hole by back pocket tip (from previous order). Have ordered reg length and will see if a better fit. Hope that helps someone.

Love these jeans and now have 4 pairs. They do look like denim and are hands-down the most comfortable jeans I've ever worn. As others have noted, they run large and stretch considerably as you wear them; I bought a size smaller than I usually wear--YMMV.
Would definitely buy these in other colors or styles, such as a cropped pant.
