Rated 5 out of 5 by oldsoul65 Great Fit
In jeans, I prefer heavy-weight denim and the straight-legged style. I need legs that are long enough without looking sloppy. These are perfect and I now have 2 pair!

Rated 1 out of 5 by LovesSnow One wash = 2" less
I was so happy to find a pair of jeans that fit well. I immediately washed and dried them before I wore them the first time. I was so disappointed to notice how short they were after I put them on. I measured them and my 30" pants were now 28" in length. I returned them and was reluctant to buy another pair in fear that the same thing would happen again. :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by leananlong ALMOST, but not quite
These jeans are the best fabric in the world--actual, real cotton denim. Those of us who live in the real world appreciate how hard it is to find (ever try to ride a horse or do real work in 21st century so-called denim??). But, hey, Bean -- not all of us have ample butts, and we'd love these jeans even more if they were less baggy in the rear. Couldn't you PLEASE make them in a size 2? We have had enough of trying to fit into men's jeans--with no waistline and no hips. Bean's double-L jeans DO allow us to tuck in a shirt, to wear a belt, to keep our navels and our fannies covered--but they also bag at the seat, as you would know if you had been reading our reviews the last several years. We want an attractive cut in a jean that is not stretchy, flimsy fabric, and we want it at Bean's still-decent price. Please, please make double-Ls small enough for grown-up girls who are in good shape and want to look good in what we used to call our Levis. Thanks!

Please, please bring back the slightly fitted, tapered leg ladies jeans. Nothing fits as well on me. I like these straight legs because they are slightly fitted and the only L L Bean jeans I can wear, but they look like mom jeans with the big legs. I watch every year for you to bring them back. Please!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by agnesnutter too small, no give in the fabric
I normally wear a 14/16, so I ordered these in a 16. Too small. LL Bean pants (in any style) used to reliably fit me, but it seems like this season they've re-sized things. This is probably the fourth pair of pants I've ordered recently that I will return for being too small. And I'm not one to underestimate my weight and I have plenty of Bean and other brand pants in 14s and 16s that fit just fine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by WBGCRUISER Fabric thinner than past purchases
I love the fit of the LLBean jeans - except this time - the fabric was definately thinner than the prior ones I had purchased. I thought it could be the color - but I am disappointed. I will keep the jeans, but will probably not purchase them again from LLBean.

Rated 3 out of 5 by lin115 substantial fabric, good fit
I like them except for the waistband, it is serged with a heavy synthetic thread, and feels like a saw against my skin, even through a camisole. I used the size chart and waist is not too tight, just abrasive, especially in the course of a day's wear.

Ordered two pairs in dark wash. Were very long out of package, but shrank to size when washed. Sized a bit larger in waist than previous orders. Denim somewhat coarser and lighter than in previous orders, but still a very nice pair of jeans. Enjoy wearing them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JungatHeart Wish they came in corduroy too!
First of all, I agree with some other reviewers about these feeling good to wear because they are 100% cotton. It is hard to find all-cotton pants these days. Other than 2 pairs of pants that I bought from LL Bean specifically for winter, these are the only pants I've ordered and kept from LLB in quite awhile.
I bought the black ones; I like the leg width, not wide-legged and not tapered. I like the fact that I don't have to tug at them all day to keep them on my waist. I don't ever tuck things in so I would rather have pants that sit comfortably near the waist. I don't think I would wear the blue denim versions but I think it's because I don't like the colors of denim they are offered in. I would probably like a rinsed denim color, but more than anything, I wish these came in corduroy. I wish they came in rust, and camel, and plum, and gray, and green, and on and on.
I usually wear 6 or 8 in LL Bean pants and 6 fits fine. I usually do better with pants that are marked as "curvy." I don't have trim hips or thighs and these fit comfortably but are flattering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MsHT My favorite jeans
After trying various types of jeans, I made the genius move of calling LL Bean's customer service people and describing my problems with fit. They recommended these jeans, which are perfect for my body type. I love the cotton. I love how they show off my legs even when my hips and waist are more to be pitied than admired. But would I recommend them to a friend? I'd recommend my friend call LL Bean if she were having trouble finding the right fit. I have no talent in this department. Thank you, Bean!
