Rated 5 out of 5 by halcyondaze Great for a straighter shape!
I have ALWAYS had an aversion to LL Bean jeans, because every pair in every style that I tried were consistently too small in the waist while too roomy in the thighs. These jeans, in my opinion, are probably not for the hourglass shape. They seem more suited to the straght shape, like mine-YEA and FINALLY.
In fact I only took a chance on them because of the other reviews saying the same.
The fabric is a little thin, but very comfortable.
I am 5'7" 145lbs 31" inseam. I would have to order a 10L, in other LL Bean styles, just to accomodate for waist. In this style the 8R fits great and is long enogh, so far(hopefully no shrinkage in length with washing).

Rated 5 out of 5 Signature Straight Leg
I LOVE these jeans! They are a little thin, I'm waiting to see how they hold up. I usually dislike jeans because they are uncomfortable to me but these are awesome, very comfortable! Cute fit, they do stretch a little. These are my favorite jeans and would recommend them to anyone : )

Best jeans I've ever had. Lightweight and fit through hips and thighs where other jeans are often baggy on my size 8 frame. Friends have asked where I got them, which is unusual when wearing jeans. The only downside is that I'm in Canada and have to pay exchange rates and import duties, which puts them close to $100 per pair. Would love for L.L. Bean to expand to Canada.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SB23985 Love These Jeans!
I got these jeans about two months ago and have worn them nearly every day since then. My biggest complaint against most jeans I've ever owned is that they stretch out after the first wear and become saggy in the seat and look horrible. I'm pleased to say that after nearly constant wear for two months these jeans have held up great. They fit just as well as when I first tried them on. They are on the thin side but the denim doesn't feel low quality. The wash is great (I got the indigo). A note on the size: I am 5' 4" and weigh 124. I like my jeans to be form fitting (tight but not obscenely so). To get that fit with these jeans I ended up buying a 0. I'm usually a 2 or 4 at other stores. The 0s just fit right even though it sounds crazy to me to have size 0 jeans. All in all they just fit awesome--I love them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Peartree Big waist
These jeans are low in the rise as I was expecting but too big in the waist and narrow in the thighs. I'm normally a size 8 but got these in a 10. The hips/thighs were fine but waist big by four inches. The fabric also was not to my liking as it was quite thin and the colour a rather muted light blue that looked dated to me. If you have any shape to your waist these will gap open in the back on you.

I always have trouble finding jeans to fit my boxy shape. I have a waist of 29" and hips of 32" so I never line up with the charts. I ordered a size 4 and it fits perfectly. The lower waist band seems to solve my particular problem. The fit is yummy! Not too tight that I have no room to expand after a good meal yet not too roomy that I'm always tugging at them. The Signature line offers a better fit than Bean's regular line. Congrats Beanie!

Rated 2 out of 5 by mtbjane Back pockets are too big!
I ordered a petite size 6 in white. I am 5'2" and about 125 lbs. I normally wear a 6 in llbean. I find that with Signature items, you need to go up a size. I should have ordered an 8.
The issue with these pants is that the back pockets are too big and look unflattering from behind. They are not only unflattering, but make the jeans look unstylish and frumpy. I returned the size 6 back, but did not reorder because of the pocket issue.

Love the cut of these jeans. They are rather slim in the hips which are just fine for me. I have them in indigo and white. I wish the fabric of the whites had the same feel as the indigo. By comparison the whites are heavier and a stiffer fabric. Hope the same styling will be available in a corduroy or twill for fall. Also would like to see them available in a short length. Tried the petites but they were too short in the rise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by yourmajesty A true straight fit FINALLY!
First note - the colour of the light wash jeans are more greyish than they appear in the picture (not so much a white washed look), and they are a lighter weight jean, making them excellent for spring/summer.
The fit is a true straight. I have a hard time finding properly fitting jeans, as they generally are too big in the hips and inner thigh, and at the back of the waist. The length was perfect (my legs are ~33" long), and the size 0 is true to size.
If you are built long and lean like a tom-boy, consider these jeans, and any other Signature pant. I have purchased now three pairs from the Signature line and am very happy with them.
