Rated 5 out of 5 by kidstone27 My Go-To Pants for Everything!
These pants are truly the best thing I have ever added to my wardrobe. They can be dressed up, easily worn to the office or thrown on for running errands. They look great but for my height they are best worn with heels so the bottom doesn't drag. Comfortable, easy to take care of and wonderful if you don't tuck in your tops! I folded them in a way they didn't wrinkle and they were the best thing I had for long days, bus rides and walking in Europe! I am ordering more since 3 of the 4 pair I own are over 2 years old and I am afraid they might be discontinued.

These pants run very, very big and are very cheaply made. The waistband is just a wide piece of elastic with the pant fabric wrapped around it and tacked in a few places, not even sewn in or sewn down. I really do not understand what is happening with Bean's quality, it's a shame to sell something like this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 50somethingmom Sizing chart is off but pants are great
I measured my waist and hips and came up with 33 and 43, respectively. So I fell into the "large" category. I ordered two pairs of the pants, one large and one medium, since an old pair I had was a size 8, and that would be a small, so I thought I would at least try the medium. The medium fits easily - not at all snug - and I am pretty sure I could wear a small if I lost as few as 5 pounds. I was swimming in the large, which I am returning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nightgale Eureka!
I "discovered" LLB Perfect Fit pants about a year ago, and I now wear no other pants. (I am phasing out the few other brands/types I've worn the past several years.)
I have an odd figure and I can find almost no pants that both fit and look good. I'm on the borderline between Petite and Regular. My hips are slender compared to my large tummy, disproportionate due to surgery. Also I'm about a large overall, but due to non-standard measurements, I need an elastic style waistband.
I bought all 4 "perfect fit" pant styles to try on at home. I was surprised the looser style was voluminous on me. Finally I chose the "slim" style and was really surprised how well the waist smooths over my mid-section, and how non-binding it feels. The cut a bit "above" the natural waist helps.
I was afraid they would be too tight or too revealing in the hips, but these are NOT leggings. Just a clean, narrow, streamlined cut. The absence of pockets is another plus for the appearance.
It's odd that usually I wear Regular and those are about 3 inches too long. The Petite is not too short, but might look nicer just 1/2 inch longer, but as I say, I'm in between. The Petite does work, as it seems the pants don't shrink.
So this incredible, comfortable fit on a fairly chubby body is the best part. They look sleek and this makes me feel I'm not frumpy.
There are many other benefits of these "perfect fit" pants covered by reviewers. So I will just affirm yes, the fabric is divine. Like a more expensive quality, and yet quite durable. Yes, they wear well, and I have a dog jumping on them rather frequently. Yes they wash easily. Yes, they are lightweight, but not flimsy. Yes, they stretch and don't cling, yet never get baggy.
There are similar types of pants, this general idea, out there, but LLB really got it right. I have compared, believe me. These are classy yet practical, and rightly called "perfect".

Purchased as a workout pant, love them. So does my daughter. She is now wearing them. Came back to purchase more. They did seem to run big, I started with a medium, exchanged to a small, and then exchanged to XS. Now, a wonderful fit. They are a little high in the waist, but for the gym, that could be a good thing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by yokiebeanshopper Long
I had surgery recently and wanted some pants with a gentle waist and forgiving tummy area. These fit the bill under that criteria, but they seemed pretty long. I am 5' 5" tall, 140 lbs. I do have shorter legs and longer torso. I ordered a medium petite. They are comfy, but still plenty long. I have to wear them pretty high, but aren't tucking in shirts so it's fine. Others have mentioned the waist band. It is not stitched closed around the elastic. Not sure why they left it unstitched, but it's not a problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MDgirl4 Nice look
These pants look and feel great! They are very flattering! Best of all, as promised, they do NOT bag out, but keep their shape all day. I have had several people tell me I looked good & asked if I'd lost weight when wearing these pants due to the flattering long, slim fit of the legs. I LOVE the fact that they come in tall sizes, but I have one major complaint. The inseam length was perfect, but the length of the pants from the crotch to the waist was REDICULOUS! They were so long the waistband almost reached the bottom of my bra. Tall women have longer legs, but our torsos are not longer than regular misses sizes. I had to pay $10 per pair to get the waistband lowered at the tailors. I have several tall friends and they always have the same problem when buying tall pants. It's time manufacturers realize this!!!! I will be buying more of these pants however & unless you make a change, will just have to pay to get them altered. I do love them and thank you for a great pair of pants with a great fit!

Rated 1 out of 5 by ATallWoman Unfortunate Design Change
I purchased two pairs of Slim Perfect Fit pants - black, Tall in 2012. I was delighted with the fit. Finally comfortable pants that look good, too. Over time I ordered other colors, Tan and Loden Green. Strange, they seemed a little shorter. Maybe a batch processing error? Or did I wash them and somehow shrink them?
Finally I checked the website and saw that the inseam had changed to 32" from 34".
What an unfortunate design change to make.
I hope enough tall women complain that LLBean reverses it.
Remember, it is always possible to hem pants that are a little too long, but you can never add fabric that isn't there in the first place!
Tall women of America #and elsewhere# unite!
Ask LLBean to reinstate the longer inseam.
Their marketability will automatically expand to a greater number of people.

Rated 5 out of 5 by husbear I LOVE THESE PANTS
I originally ordered two, one in black and one in khaki, and just ordered another one of each as backup because I ended up wearing them so often. I have a 33 1/2 in. inseam and Bean's medium tall size is a perfect fit for me. I use them as an alternative to leggings to wear with tunics and short dresses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by monabalogna Nice for yoga
I bought these pants specifically for yoga since I do not like low rise yoga pants. These are great because I wear a long shirt over them anyway and I can move freely in them. I thought they ran a little big as I normally wear an 8 petite but I bought the XS petite and they fit perfectly! Would recommend them as yoga pants.
