Rated 3 out of 5 by Peartree Big waist
These jeans are low in the rise as I was expecting but too big in the waist and narrow in the thighs. I'm normally a size 8 but got these in a 10. The hips/thighs were fine but waist big by four inches. The fabric also was not to my liking as it was quite thin and the colour a rather muted light blue that looked dated to me. If you have any shape to your waist these will gap open in the back on you.

I always have trouble finding jeans to fit my boxy shape. I have a waist of 29" and hips of 32" so I never line up with the charts. I ordered a size 4 and it fits perfectly. The lower waist band seems to solve my particular problem. The fit is yummy! Not too tight that I have no room to expand after a good meal yet not too roomy that I'm always tugging at them. The Signature line offers a better fit than Bean's regular line. Congrats Beanie!

Rated 2 out of 5 by mtbjane Back pockets are too big!
I ordered a petite size 6 in white. I am 5'2" and about 125 lbs. I normally wear a 6 in llbean. I find that with Signature items, you need to go up a size. I should have ordered an 8.
The issue with these pants is that the back pockets are too big and look unflattering from behind. They are not only unflattering, but make the jeans look unstylish and frumpy. I returned the size 6 back, but did not reorder because of the pocket issue.

Love the cut of these jeans. They are rather slim in the hips which are just fine for me. I have them in indigo and white. I wish the fabric of the whites had the same feel as the indigo. By comparison the whites are heavier and a stiffer fabric. Hope the same styling will be available in a corduroy or twill for fall. Also would like to see them available in a short length. Tried the petites but they were too short in the rise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by yourmajesty A true straight fit FINALLY!
First note - the colour of the light wash jeans are more greyish than they appear in the picture (not so much a white washed look), and they are a lighter weight jean, making them excellent for spring/summer.
The fit is a true straight. I have a hard time finding properly fitting jeans, as they generally are too big in the hips and inner thigh, and at the back of the waist. The length was perfect (my legs are ~33" long), and the size 0 is true to size.
If you are built long and lean like a tom-boy, consider these jeans, and any other Signature pant. I have purchased now three pairs from the Signature line and am very happy with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnimalPoet I usually like only skinnies, but I like these!!!!
I bought these months ago, but forgot to review 'em. I am 5'3" -- weight fluctuates between 99 and 104 libs. I wear 0 or 2 jeans, petite or reg, depending on manufacturer and style. Size 2P is perfect in the Bean Signature skinned - In the Signature straight, however, I wear O. They inseam worked out for me because I am right in the petite-regular cutoff point. Bottom line: I love the fit. Straight jeans are usually too loose through hips and thigh and calf for my liking: these fit just right. I bought the lightest rinse: washed. This was precisely what I was looking for. I am happy with these. I was not precisely sizing down, since both 0 and 2 are my sizes, but if you take 2 in the skinnies here, you might like 0 in the straights. Just my experience! I love the Signatures jeans! I hope there will be more and more bleached and medium washes to come!

These jeans are slim fit and flattering. I have purchased this jean in two other colors and this is the best wash.

The design makes the thin fabric wrinkle between the waist band and the rear pockets. The thin single layer of fabric can't hold up the double layer of fabric above it. The look is cheap.

Rated 2 out of 5 by beenaweena at first happy, but...
When my order arrived, I tried on the petite-sized (I'm 5'5", 120#, 34-26-34) jeans and my thoughts were at first happy, but, (behold the underlying truth) I noticed that within an hour, the dye had transferred to my hands. The jeans began to look stretched-out as well as droopy in the rear. As expected, once off, the jean's dye bled onto all areas they were in contact with. Bummer.
