Rated 5 out of 5 by NationalParkVolunteer They fit - but order the longer length!
I've washed these a few times now, and the Medium Tall inseam is at 31". An inch shorter than I like. If these become available in my size in the future, I'd order the "Tall". (Easier to take an inch off than to add an inch!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by NationalParkVolunteer They fit !!!
I'm 5'9", size 6. Long legs. I bought the Medium Tall, and they fit like a dream. I like the higher waist - it doesn't cut across my hips at the widest point, making them impossible to wear without a belt. These fit like they were customized to my body.

Found myself in a mall with a LL Bean store last weekend - I was pleased, as I've had horrible luck buying jeans that fit from LL Bean via mail order. Went inside, and tried on these jeans - seemed to fit perfectly in the store, so I bought two pairs. Have now had them a week - worn and washed a couple of times - and find that they have shrunk just enough to be too short in length (I bought regular length, I usually wear medium tall, but thought these were ok when I tried them on); also - when I wear these jeans, they stretch out to the point I am constantly pulling them up after sitting down, moving around, etc. Extremely disappointed to have the waist, hips, etc., bag out to the point that I have to keep pulling at them. Make this 5 pairs of different LL Bean jeans I now have that I can't wear. I really like LL Bean's denim fabric, which is why I keep trying their jeans. However, these aren't it. (I usually wear a size 10, for reference; medium tall, slim leg - not straight leg - too wide, but I don't want a skinny pipe jean or jegging; 5'6", 145)

These jeans run small and short. Go up at least one size if you are maximum 5' 6" in height. I am 5' 7" and they were so short I don't think even going up a size will give me enough length.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cora55 Fantastic jeans update
I wrote a review about these jeans a few weeks ago and would like to update it. I still love the jeans but have exchanged my 3 pairs for medium tall length from my original regular length. I found the regular length was just a little shorter than I prefer my pants and jeans to be. I still find them extremely comfortable and flattering. Ordering one size up has solved the problem other reviewers have complained about that the jeans fit like leggings and are too tight. I am, also, monitoring the fading of the black jeans. Some has occurred. If it gets too bad, I will send them back to LLBean for an replacement. But overall, these are my go-to pants!

As most of us know, finding the right pair of jeans is no easy task, but for me, these are perfect! I have five pair and will likely buy more. I never buy pants online as I'm hard to fit -- I'm only 5ft 4in and 110 lbs, but have a longer inseam than most petites. That said, I took a chance and LLB didn't let me down. I bought a size 8 with a regular inseam and they are great. I almost bought a size 6, but didn't want them too fitted. The result is jeans with a slim look without being skin tight. Even after numerous washings, there is minimal shrinkage which is a real plus. If I have any complaint, it would be that the black pair hasn't "matured" as well as the denim colors. Not only are they not as soft, but the color is far more weathered than I anticipated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SoCalPreppyGirl One of two go to jeans from LLB
As a 100% cotton jeans woman, I hesitated on getting these jeans because they have some stretch, in addition to being higher cut than I'm accustomed to. As I ease through my early 40s, though, these jeans helped me discover that stretch is my new best friend! These jeans are flattering, give in all the right places, and the wash looks good considering they are not 100% cotton. The higher waist is comfortable and I'm finding that I prefer it. So far no bagging/sagging - time will tell with that. I love there are a variety of good washes to choose from AND in petite sizing. These are now another pair of go to jeans from LLB!

Rated 5 out of 5 by donotlikeshopping fit is perfect
I hesitated to order jeans online since the fit can be tricky. These are perfect! The waist is just right on my petite frame and the legs are slim but not too tight. After wearing this pair for a few months, I ordered two more in different colors.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DrLT Great fit from the thigh up
These jeans are very comfortable. I love the stretch and the rise is just right. The fabric is very nice, color good. So far it's five stars. But the slim legs are SO slim it is not flattering. If I want to see the lines of my socks through my pants, I'll buy leggings! These pants fit much slimmer than the photo shows, at least on me. I wore them a few times and really tried to like them but they are going back. I'm not looking for bell bottoms here, folks. I know the difference between "wide" legs and "straight." But seriously, these are almost as tight as leggings below the knee.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CasualStyleConscious Very Long Waisted
The proportions on these jeans are way off. Too long in the crotch and I consider myself to be long waisted. Too bad. The jeans themselves are nice.
Also, I (along with many others) would like to see the regular jeans at 31" inseam.
