Rated 3 out of 5 by Springermom1 Nice straight leg, but waist not as advertised
The favorite fit is supposed to be below the waist. These came about an inch above my natural waist....strange. They have a nice, classic, straight leg, however. They work OK with long sweaters, but could not wear them with a top tucked in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by agatha2 charcoal true shape is almost black!
Love the true shape jeans so I was thrilled when the charcoal color was offered. I have had a difficult time finding a gray pant this last year. I ordered it in my size (12) (hips 39") and waited. I was shocked with the color because it was nearly black and my computer showed a more medium color gray...maybe my computer? I left them hanging up so I would look at them numerous times a day and try to decide if they would work. I finally decided that this probably as close as I would come to getting the "gray jean" I wanted. I put them on and left for the day. They once again proved to be a comfortable and flattering jean! Maybe a lighter gray will be offered next year???

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lccnm Not a true fit
I completely agree with the review "Disappointing." Tried my size, 14, and they were like jeggings. Skin tight everywhere. So returned them and ordered up a size. The rise was way off- like mommy jeans in the front. I had to pull them above my waist to get a good fit. The waist dipped lower in the back which felt very uncomfortable. Fit well through the thigh and then were very tight through the knees and calves.
Sigh. Loved the colors and the feel of the material. When you are 68, why is it so darn hard to find jeans that fit as well as the ones I had when I was 16 ;-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by ILoveLLBeanInSC Great fit and very comfortable
These jeans are already my favorite! They fit perfectly and the higher waist and slim legs really have a slimming effect. I plan to purchase another pair in a different color.

Rated 1 out of 5 by pinacolada Disappointing
I wanted to like these jeans but the fit was way off for me. I thought the rise on favorite fit would be below the waist but it's not. The waist was not only too high but gapped in the back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GreenBeanMom True to size
I read the reviews and they steered me toward ordering a size up. This did not work for me since the material has enough give to allow for an initial snug fit post washing, then they relax just enough to be comfortable and good looking. Of course I was able to exchange for my true size using LLBean's outstanding customer service and satisfaction guarantee. Love the fabric, the fit, the look. The capris are great too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PittsburghRN Sleek fit without being restrictive
Love the way these jeans fit. Hug my curves nicely without feeling restrictive. Great "give" in the denim.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NN4CR nice denim
I love this fabric. It looks like real, old-fashioned denim in a soft hue, with a "genuine cotton" feeling to it.
These do not look like stretch jeans or designer jeans or cheap jeans. They look and wear like authentic, well-made, neat, unpretentious, smooth denim.
They are also the only "stretch" I've tried (of many) that really don't feel a size larger by end of day. The fit is excellent and my figure is not perfect (size 16). Only issue is knees, too tight and feel constricting but everywhere else fits great.
