Rated 4 out of 5 by Unexpectedlypleased Not Bad
So due to the relaxed fit, nobody is going to say that these are smart looking dressy jeans because they simply aren?t and they don?t claim to be. They fabric is a lovely soft texture and the fit was surprisingly good for me. I am proportionally speaking small of waist and large of thigh so the more fitted styles that are popular today tend to slide down or simply not fit because of my thighs. For once that wasn?t the problem with this pair. The waist was actually perfect and the thighs we not tourniquet tight. I was also concerned that due to my proportions that a strait leg would look tapered but it didn?t. The problems seem to arise with fit expectation. The rise is not what I would call ?lower.? By other standards I believe they would be considered a? just below? the waist fit as they are not at the waist like ?mom jeans? but they are nowhere near low enough to be considered a low rise. It is my guess that LL Bean doesn?t even make a fit that would be considered genuinely low (the likes of which tend to create muffin tops). Over all a nice pair of jeans that doesn?t punish for having curves.

Rated 2 out of 5 by veganchick These fit high on the waist
They say they sit lower than the waist but they fit high on the waist. Being 5'3" and short waisted, they were way too high. Also they are not straight leged but rather boot cut. Sadly I am sending them back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 63882 Great Color and fabric inaccurate measurements
I loved these soft, summertime light blue wash jeans. I wear a size 4 and they fit perfectly but the inseam measured 29 inches instead of 30 inches and that one inch made a lot of difference. I knew that as soon as they were laundered they would just be too short. I have had to order size 6 to get a longer inseam so I will be returning the size 4 ones that I ordered.

Rated 4 out of 5 by shoppingpro the do stretch and run short
I'm 5'5"- 150lbs w/ long legs so I always order medium tall in pants- oh and size 12. These fit nicely when first put on- but stretch as the day goes on- the medium tall were almost too short. Nice an light weight though...

Rated 3 out of 5 by PenguinBec What's up with the pockets??
I have to grade these jeans down because of the front pocket length.
The jeans are extremely comfortable. The fit is great. BUT the front pockets are so shallow I'm afraid I'm going to lose something. I am going to have to add some length to them before they will be truly functional.
I am a person who carries most of my stuff, (wallet, keys, money) in my pockets and I don't understand why jeans would be built with useless front pockets.
If they had real pockets I'd give them 5 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dg23 add size 2 and small-waist version please
Great soft lightweight denim with slight stretch to it. Colors are nice; I especially like the vintage wash.
I tried a 4 Reg Straight-Leg Stonewashed (sale item TL275428, maybe last year's model?). The proportions (waist-hip-legs) were right, it was just one size too big. It wasn't baggy, as other comments noted; seems like if I had the correct size, it would be a slightly loose fit and great summer jeans. I'm 5'1" 120 lb, pear-shaped (27" waist, 36" hip). If size 2 was available, I would buy it!
I also tried a 4 Reg Bootcut Vintage Wash (regular price item TA292218). The fit is totally different. The size 4 fits perfectly in the hips/butt/legs. But the waist is too big and gaps open in the back. A "curvy" version for smaller waist, bigger hips body-type would be fantastic.
Also, the 'favorite fit' rise is still too high: 1/2" below my belly button. How about a rise that sits 1.5" below the belly button?
It would really be great if the torso of pants came in petite, reg and tall, and you could choose the inseam (pet, reg, med, or tall).

Rated 3 out of 5 by shoppingpro dissapointed with the length
no idea if my jeans were mislabeled but I ordered M/T and they are the length of medium length. I'm 5'5" and have a long inseam. Nice lightweight material because winter is OVER! Will keep them though

Rated 4 out of 5 by Albatross333 Comfortable Jeans
These are my favorite jeans right now. They are not perfect. I find them extremely comfortable due to the low rise, yet perfect fitting waist. However, the pockets ARE shallow, the thighs ARE baggy (and I have big thighs), they shrink in length pretty bad (am ordering a longer inseam next time), and would be perfect if the above were fixed AND they had a gusseted crotch. I've gotten rather sick of that bulky cross in my crotch and had been wearing gusseted jeans for a few years before deciding to try these. They don't look "sexy" per se, due to the baggy thighs. But they are more comfortable than tighter pants which would force that crotch cross right in there. These are very comfortable decent looking jeans.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LuvToWander Not for me
Nice jeans and the waist/hip fit was good on me, but just too baggy in the thighs. I sent them back.
