Rated 1 out of 5 by sarakay Really high waistband!
I wish I could have loved these...the silk was soft and seemed strong, but the waistband reached way over my waistline, even though I am a long-waisted person. I know the trend is toward low- or mid-rise pants and not everyone likes those, but these were even higher than high waisted pants! Please re-style, or offer them in various rises, LLBean. :(

I'm a petite which mean an inseam of 29 inches or less. These fit well but the rise (distance between the crotch and waist was not Petite. I could pull them all the way up to my breasts. So perhaps the rise needs to be adjusted for those of us that have a 7" rise versus a 16" rise.
All I can hope is that these last longer than my last pair which was about one year before the crotch area shreds. My previous pair of these I had lasted from 1995 until about 2014/2015 before they were replaced by what I consider substandard for LL Bean .
Just being truthful here because I believe LL Bean has good products but some have seem to have been of less quality in recent years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DMLH silk underware are the best
These pants offer great warmth with very little bulk. My only complaint is that the sizing run big. I 'm 5'3" 128lbs so I ordered a Petite Medium. They were huge, had to return them for a Petite Small which is okay, I kept them , but wonder if if may have been able to fit into an X Small.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CityWalks Cozy and sleek, but very high waist
I like these and have bought several pairs. They are warm and don't add bulk under clothes. I just wish the cut were a bit more modern/youthful. The rise is so high I can almost pull them up to my bust. I end up turning the waist down twice, which can be awkward due to the large tag. They run large like most LL Bean items--I wear a medium in most brands (for a 26" waist and 38" hips) but in these the small fits me fine. I am short (5'3") but bought the normal length--it's not excessively long.

The medium petite for this product is absurdly large. I reordered it in petite small and it is still roomy. I bought these bottoms to wear under clothes to which I am allergic, and it doesn't seem very effective. Absolutely must wash before first wearing.

I have several pair of these silk pointelle pants. If the temp is below freezing I put them on. They are lightweight and don't spoil the line of my clothes, but they keep me warm. Would recommend them to anyone who gets cold easily. They are true to size, which is not always the case with mail order items these days. Petites fit well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by RU4Real There was a time I raved about my LLBean Silks...
...unfortunately, that time is no longer.
Note to Quality Control:
Factory VN# 04588 n factory VN# 20004 produce a silk product FAR superior to factory VN# 06771
My silks from factories 20004/04588 are ripped in multiple places from use, but the silk is soft and hasn't pilled anywhere from 10+ years of washings, when tumble drying was still recommended.
My silks from 06771 are horrible! I have cared for them as instructed, but the pilling after less than a handful of washes is UNBELIEVABLE! The poor quality can only lead me to believe, as another reviewer has stated, that the factory is not shipping goods of 100% silk.

On chilly days these silky, comfortable pants are the perfect
underwear. They do not stick to outer clothes and give an extra layer of warmth. I like the banded bottoms, which can be tucked into socks and the easy elastic waist..

Rated 5 out of 5 by UnluckyLindy Exactly What I Hoped For
Ordered these to keep me from freezing while waiting for commuter rail in Massachusetts (which can be delayed a lot in the winter). They are SO COMFORTABLE, So LIGHT and SOFT on the skin, and SO WARM. I wear them all day at work and never know I have them on except I'm not cold (my workplace is freezing too, so these help there while I'm sitting at a computer all day).
I ordered the Small which supposedly fit 6-8. Just letting you know that I'm a size 2/4 normally, and these are not too big for me. A true 6-8 might find them snug in the waist or legs.
I wash them on the hand-wash cycle of the washing machine, in a lingerie bag, hang them to dry and they are ready to wear the next day. Got two pairs and I'm all set and very pleased with them. Thank you L.L. Bean for the QUALITY!
