Rated 3 out of 5 by runner7 not as good as before
i had purchased these in past years and the quality is not the same as before. i read reviews and agreed with most. sizing is not right. the quality of the silk is not as before. silk is very thin. the waist on size small had to be folded down several times. bring back the old stuff and maybe have it made in america.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bluemoon222 What happened to the quality?
Having worn L.L. Bean silk long johns for many years, I expected my selection of this winter to be as nice, durable, and warm as always-- however I was very disappointed to find the quality was very poor, the silk knit was as flimsy as a pair of panty hose-- certainly not worth the expense so all was returned and I purchased my supply from another company...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vibvilcca fabulous
I ordered an XL, and they are a bit bigger than I had anticipated, but they are fabulous. This is not my first pair of these, and I will continue to order them in the future.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Marianna53 Not high quality
These silk pants run large, I ordered my usual size of Large, but could have worn a Medium with no problem. The fabric is extraordinarily thin and snags easily. I did not return them because they do offer a bit of extra weight without bulk. I have worn them only 3 times and there are snags in the fabric. I should not have been expecting high quality (like the LLB silk underwear pants from the '90s).

Only two winters (and not a lot of wear or washing) and they are totally ripping around waist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by silkreviewer Comfortable, easy care
I have an rare medical condition that makes one allergic to the cold. These silk underclothes make cold weather much more bearable. I had looked high and low for affordable, durable silk and have found it in your product.
I found that the items run a little large, so would recommend a size smaller than you would normally consider, especially if you take an X sized garment.

Rated 1 out of 5 by beraksmom Ammend my previous review
I still love the fit and warmth, but very dissapointed in the quality. I am now returning my 3rd pair because of runs and tears in the fabric. I wear these every day. Warm? YES! Durable? NO! I wash them exactly as labeled and still am sending back another set of pants that are falling apart. They fit great, I am 5'6" and 140 pounds, I work in size 10 MT Bayside Twills every day so I cannot believe the my body proportions are damaging the seams of these pants. They fit loose/comfortable on me. The first pair that failed? Well, no one is perfect. The second? Hmmmm. The 3rd? Well, LL, I do expect better quality than that. Using these pants for 2 months and very, very sad to be writing a negative review. No trouble at all with returns, your satisfaction guarantee is perfect, but I would much rather pay a fair price for a good, DURABLE product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 1dog2cats haven't worn well
At first I really liked this silk long underwear. It is very light, very thin and added a bit of warmth under other pants. However, they have not worn well. After wearing them at most 30 times, they have developed runs and holes in the fabric. I expect longer wear for this price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by kengar over priced
I have bought the silk underwear(pants) before and am disappointed in the quality. They run and stretch very quicky. I had better luck with the turtle neck shirt. Perhaps another manufacturer should be considered for the future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by chillyinthemidwest Should have listened to sizing reviews
Well, lets see....what I like about this item is.......the color surf blue.
Spent $44.95 to much. I was afraid to go down a size due to; I havent been a large in 15 years. They ARE Oversized. They are also thin, see through, sheer as hoisery. Baggy in fit, baggy in calves, baggy in crotch, and thin. The waistband goes up under my bra so the perk..... it warms my stomach.
To end on a good note......the longjohns provided laughter with my husband and I love ll beans shoes.
