Rated 4 out of 5 by Cyann Double L jeans
It is such a pleasure to have pants that don't hang on my hips. There are so few out there that are made for older women who want pants with a natural waist (ie, above the belly button). I only wish there was a light weight denim available too -- I won't be able to wear these in the summer, as the fabric is way to heavy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HeatherBW Really good jeans!
It was great to find a pair of 100% cotton jeans. The fit was as expected based on the fit chart (which, as is most often the case with pants, does not entirely suit by body shape). I would be thrilled if you started making these in a size 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FirstQuality Good jeans!
All cotton! These are real jeans, and I really like them. I ordered a 12 (one size up from my usual 10) and washed them and they fit great. I also ordered MT when in *most* other Bean pants I wear a regular length, but I've found that all cotton jeans shrink in length, and so it was with these, which was fine because I expected it. You know, I get it, that younger women don't mind the spandex squeeze, anything to be in style at that age. I understand completely, and were I younger, I'd probably do the same. But I've reached the enviable Age of Reason (65) which allows me to confidently wear whatever I want whenever I want, and when it comes to jeans, my Reason tells me that good jeans, for me, should be comfortable, they should be useful and durable (I'm a photographer, outside a lot, climbing a lot) and still attractive. With my boots and a turtleneck or tee, and a canvas vest, these jeans make a great outdoors outfit for adventures with my cameras. Good sense, good jeans. Good job, LLBean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by momster042 Always comfortable
This is the fifth pair I have purchased in the past few years. One pair from three years ago was too snug in the waist, but the problem has been corrected. This new pair is great!

Rated 1 out of 5 by ubercat black jeans get white streaks after washing
Had to go a size up, but was fine with that. However, after washing in cold water the black jeans had white streaks everywhere. (No, I did not use bleach, but it looked like it.)

Rated 1 out of 5 by IndianaFan Too short, tight waist, huge legs
These jeans are just a mess. I was excited to see 100% denim jeans with a high rise. However, I have ordered three pairs in three different sizes--12 petite, 14 regular, and 14 relaxed-- and have had to send them all back. The waist is tight, while the legs are huge, like clown pants as another reviewer said. The waist seems way out of proportion to the legs in all of the sizes I tried. And the petites were very short, much shorter than the length stated on the web site. I always wear petite pants and jeans but these were terribly short. I would love to buy several pairs of these jeans, but LL Bean needs to whip its supplier in shape so that they will fit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DebraL Thighs are not "slightly fitted"
I have to send these two pairs back. The price was great. I liked the medium weight cotton denim fabric. The size 12 regular was good for my 5'3" height, but tight on my 31" waist, and so huge on my thighs that they looked wide-leg style.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Countrydogwalker Straight Leg Jeans
These jeans fit fairly well except the length is too short and the rise is too short. I ordered petite but then reordered a regular. The regular was a better fit and only about an inch too long but better than too short. The waist is loose on me but I have a small waist and bigger hips. I think they need to lengthen the leg and rise in the petite and probably all lengths need to be adjusted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CottonJeansFTW Love them!
Thank you, finally found 100% cotton jeans that come up to my waist and do not look too much like mom jeans. So nice to have found an antidote to the then, low-rise, spandex "jeans" offered by most stores today. Please do not discontinue!

Rated 4 out of 5 by scottsmomtoo waist tight, rise perfect
Love these jeans, they usually fit great and wear well.
Own three pair, all same size, bought new pair last week and the waist is tight. I wear only Original fit (slightly above the waist,) and these used to fit perfectly in waist, hips and thigh. What changed?
Also wish LL Bean would offer colors besides stonewashed, need to update colors, something darker and maybe a black would be nice.
Four stars because of the too tight waist and I have not gained weight.(going up one size is too big everywhere else.)
