Rated 5 out of 5 by KSDoglover Love them
Okay, I should have bought the Petite size (I'm 5'3") but I don't really mind that they're a bit long. The cuff holds them up anyway, and besides, that allows for ease of movement to help prevent stretching them out at the knees. This is the 2nd pair I've bought - the other pair was about 4 years old and getting worn (I wore them a lot!)
I don't have any problem with the waist being too high, myself, and as I said, I'm 5'3".
It's amazing how they can keep me warm on a cold, winter walk yet not make me too warm inside (when I don't have time - or fortet - to take them off).

Rated 3 out of 5 by FunMarie LONG Long Underwear
The fabric is nice and comfortable, but the legs are long enough for someone much taller than my 5'2", and I bought a size "Small."

Rated 2 out of 5 by Megsandhercats Comfy, but strange fitting and material tears easy
The pants almost fit like they should be for men. Very long in the crotch area and legs are a little short. But I'm 5'8" and I bought an extra large, which were much too big. But my real problem is with the fabric, it tears VERY easily. I would go with the double layer thermal pants next time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymiss Conditional recommendation
I wish reviews offered a "maybe" choice for "would you recommend this item...." I'd say this item is ok. I am almost 5'3" and 114 lbs, but I have a bit of a gut, and the petite x-small fits me fine. The fabric is quite thin, but there's enough room to bend without worrying about them ripping. I wish they had more stretch, just for sleekness, but they'll be fine as a light, extra layer under jeans, etc.

There is nothing like silk underwear to keep you warm and comfortable. So soft and no bunching under clothes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BigRed100 Waistband stitching is a problem - love otherwise
Elastic waistbands must be stitched with elastic thread!!! Unfortunately, ALL of the LLB silk pants waistbands are stitched with cotton thread, which of course breaks when stretched. These I wore 2days when it started coming apart already; usually I can get to mid-winter before they get bad! Otherwise, these are a great light weight & I love them (and all of the weights). The construction flaw really must be fixed, though! Hope you read this, LLB!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Boblover Just what I hoped for
This is a Christmas present for my daughter who works in a chlly environment. I tried it and it fits under my slacks without making them any tighter. I think and hope
the fit will be good for her.
The quality seems excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by localworldtraveler Light weight, silky--great
Deep enough inseam, thank Goodness! Super soft-n-silky pointelle fabric that does not add major bulk under slacks. Nice. Breathable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beenbeaned warmth without bulk
I wear these under jeans and dress pants. They keep me warm without the bulk of ordinary long underwear. This is my second pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dskRN Silk long john pants
The silk pointelle pants are a comfortable lightweight layer for chilly weather. They are perfect for sleeping and pack small for travel. I launder at home in cold water in a zipper lingerie bag. They can be briefly line dried or I lay them flat on a towel. I wear size 8 pants and ordered the medium, which are a loose fit. Small would have been better to wear under tighter pants, but for my purposes, they are perfect. There is a big scratchy tag on the back of the waist, which I cut off with scissors.
