Rated 5 out of 5 by reader256 just in time for summer!
So glad the comfort fit cropped pants are now available in petite! The fit is great and they are very comfortable! The bottoms do bell out a little as other reviewers have stated, but if you don't mind that these are a great pair of pants for summer. They will look great with maine flip flops or the boothbay sandals!

Rated 3 out of 5 by BeansRegular Not As I Expected
I was excited to receive these crops and tried them on immediately. I like the fabric of the knit jeans and the soft feel and thought these would fit the same. I was a bit confused as one of the reviewers did rate the jeans 3 different times and gave them confusing ratings, but I decided to go ahead and order them. As others have mentioned, the fabric is great, but there were 2 major issues. My usual size 4 did fit well in the hips and legs, but the thick waist (lots of material) was several inches too large for my waist--too much for a belt to be able to draw in without leaving lots of bulk. The hems of the pants do also flare out as mentioned since the legs are wide and straight--there is no narrowing of the leg at the hem to prevent the pants from belling out. I would not feel comfortable wearing these out and will be returning these unfortunately.

Rated 4 out of 5 by twinstar2 Did not fit like knit jeans
I loved the pair of midnight blue knit jeans that I ordered, so decided to try a pair of the capris. The fit is completely different. The waist is larger and they just seem to sit differently on my hips. Also, as some of the other reviewers mentioned, they "bell" out at the bottom and are longer than I would like. I keep looking and hoping that the knit jeans will be offered in a tan or brown--and the capris too, if the problems can be fixed. If you order them and can live with these problems, then I would recommend them--they may fit you differently. The material is great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by craftylady Nice capris but
These capris are nice - they sit at the waist which is nice to find since most slacks etc. today are low riders. The only problem I would say is that they flare out at the bottom of the leg kind of like sailor pants or bell bottoms and don't look very attractive. I was really disappointed in that as I really like them otherwise. Unfortunately I'm going to be sending them back.

I am a big fan of LL bean, most of my wardrobe is LLbean. These pants really miss it for me, I can not believe the original price, just not worth it. The sizing was fine and they fit fine, they just look horrible. To me they look like sweats, a look I try and avoid unless I am working out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Reviewer721 Frustration with LLBean sizing
Is it unreasonable to think the identical size in the comfort cropped jeans would fit the same across the dark blue, black and white/sea sand colors? All three were purchased within weeks of each other - less a month from start to finish. I have not changed size during that time. The white are skin tight, the black a bit snug, and the dark blue fits just right. Also, the dark blue is an inch longer than the others. Come on, LLBean. A company heavily driven by the online shopping component needs to have more consistent, reliable sizing. It is not fair to customers. Please consider improving this aspect of your business.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Reviewer721 Different sizing for different colors
Ordered the midnight wash and the black cropped pants in the same size, took them out of the package and tried them on. The black fits a fill size smaller. LLBean's variety in sizing is frustrating for those of us who order on-line.
The jeans themselves are heavenly comfortable. Love the fact they are the comfort of sweat pants with the more tailored, pulled together look of a jean. Please consider other colours - pure white, sand, rich chocolate brown perhaps?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Reviewer721 Love love love these jeans -
All the reviewers who said these "jeans" are as comfortable as sweat pants are 100% correct. The ease of "sweats" in a more tailored pant. Bought the dark midnight blue wash #adore the dark colour# crop pants, and am now going back and ordering the black crop pants and dark blue midnight blue wash straight leg jeans. Would order the white/sand colour but they're sold out in my size!
Sizing is very generous - suggest ordered a size down from your usual.
Wish they jeans were a bit more low rise, but for this comfort level, I'll take 'em!
Would LLBean consider making a straight jean skirt in the dark midnight blue wash #not gored or flared#? Please?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovethesummer Love, love, love these capris
I originally ordered these in a size 10. Loved them. I lost 25 pounds and ordered them in a size 6 and are going to order more. They are perfect! They do stretch so go with a smaller size if you are inbetween. I have long legs so the length was perfect. They wash well, don't need ironing and can be dressed up or down with what accessories you decide to wear with them. Would love to see them in more summer colors next year!
Thank you for a great fit!

Rated 3 out of 5 by SomeWhereOverTheRainbow Didn't like the fit
I really looked forward in getting these in the mail, but was very disappointed when I tried them on. I do like the bit of stretch and give the material has, but they were loose in the waist and tight on the upper thighs. I wish they fit better. I returned them.
