Rated 2 out of 5 by InHisGrip Trim is too trim; too long.
Very disappointed. I purchased a size 12 straight-leg jeans a couple of years ago for my daughter and she is starting to grow out of them. I purchased these knowing that LL Bean usually is dependable with good all-around working/playing jeans. Not this time. These size 14s are smaller and trimmer than her old size 12s. Plus, they are a couple of inches too long. They are are going back, and I'm pretty sure the size 16s won't be much of an improvement and will be longer still, so I'm not bothering. My daughter has never been a plus size in anything, ever, either. My family has shopped at LL Bean for decades. Beginning to think there's no place dependable to shop for tween girls anymore.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CasualClothesHorse The usual.....
I've been trying to find jeans for my granddaughter that aren't 'skinny'. From the jean description and other reviews, it sure sounded like they would work. I'm very disappointed to find the fit is as skinny as all the other jeans on the market nowadays. I returned them and my search is still ongoing.

These are the perfect jeans for my practical, non-trendy teen daughter. They are very flattering without looking baggy or boyish. Thank you Bean for selling jeans without sparkles! My daughter is 5'4"/120lbs....size 16 is perfect with even a bit of growing room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 6xsamom Girls' Dbl L Jeans, Straight-leg
These jeans are excellent quality and launder well. The adjustable waist is a good idea but on these the elastic does not tighten enough to make them fit well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by olnavarro Size 10 was way too big for my 10.5 year old!
I have a horrible time finding pants for my daughter. They are either just right in the length and too big at the waist or just right at the waist but too short for her height. She's a little on the small side for her age but I had high hopes that buying LL Bean jeans would solve our shopping problems. Unfortunately, when the size 10 arrived, they were HUGE in the waist (and pretty long as well). I had to send both pairs back and we are trying a size 8 in the skinny jeans with the hopes that by design, this style will be smaller overall. They should arrive today so I will come back and update my post when she tries them on. They still seem like very good quality and we've never had any issues with LL Bean clothing before. I just wish I knew what 10 year old actually has a waist that would fit the jeans that the clothing industry puts out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mariasmom Best fit!!
I have tried EVERYWHERE to purchase a pair of basic fitting jeans for my daughter. Every store and online store is filled with "pencil" leg and "skinny" jeans with a low rise. They do not fit my daughter. As a final attempt to find her some comfortable ones, I purchased these jeans. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! They are perfect! Higher rise, comfortable in the leg and an overall great fit!! Purchased 4 pairs!! Please continue making and offering these jeans! We love them!

Rated 2 out of 5 by MKdancer L.L.Bean's Girls' Double L Jeans, Straight Leg
My Mom and I have struggled forever with finding jeans for girls that are not too tight fitting. L.L.Bean's Girls' Double L Jeans, Straight Leg were not as tight as most, but still too snug. I kept the jeans because they were better than others, however, I would love to have a L.L.Bean pair of jeans for girls that are more relaxed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EskerDude These are the jeans for your daughter
My 11-year old has not worn jeans since she was 6...until she selected these from your catalog. They're not skin-tight, too revealing, or binding like other kids' "style" pants, yet are just roomy enough for an active kid. Tastefully styled, she likes wearing them with a tall cuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3Divas Great jeans!
We're so impressed with these jeans! The quality and attention to detail is so much better than we find in the retail stores around us, that it makes it worth it to order them online. The fabric is a good weight and seems to be durable, which is great for hand-me-downs. We're ordering another pair soon since these were such a hit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beanthereshoppedthat Comfortable, fit great, durable
I love these jeans for my daughter, and will be ordering more. They are just great jeans that stand up to wear, washings, and are comfortable. She has become a jean convert after wearing other brands and fining them not as comfy as these. And at this price, when she does rip a hole in the knee, or have a sudden growth spurt, I won't even think twice about replacing them.
