Rated 5 out of 5 by Durhamzoo LOVE the higher waist, eliminates muffin-top! Buy 2 sizes smaller though.
Call me old-school, but I love these jeans that actually sit just a tiny bit above my waistline. They have just enough stretch to move with your body and are long enough to wear with a small (2") heel (I'm 5'10"). They do stretch out just a bit during the day, but that's okay, because you're going to have to buy 2 sizes smaller than your normal off-the-rack jeans. These run very big. I normally wear an 18 in most clothes, but a 14 fits me perfectly in these jeans. One thing I do not especially like about them is the front pockets. They are very shallow. Basically useless except for maybe a few coins or a couple of credit cards. However, if you sew, it would easy to add 2-3" of depth to them. Also, I wish these high-waisted jeans would also come in the boot-cut. Then I would have my "perfect" jeans. All in all, these are great jeans! Thank you JCPenney for having Women's Tall clothes!!

Love the way these pants feel. The fabric is just perfect for the summer. Looks neat with heels, tennis or flip flops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Traveler210 Liz Claiborne original fit jeans
Finally, I have found another pair of jeans that fit right!
I usually order Wrangler slim cowboy cut with a high rise fit - which almost obsolete now - guess I will buy Mens.......
I ordered these jeans in my size and they fit very well. - I probably could go 1 size smaller as they are little more stretchy, easy on and very comfortable. I think they would be a little tight tho.
But with some of my issues. I am/will keep them. They sit at the waist, NOT below it.
High RISE and true to my waist!!
I just tried these on and I have not washed them yet.
I definitely recommend these pants for someone tall, but they are only 34" length. Hope they do an extra long=36" later so I can wear my boots with them.
I just ordered some more!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Teacherqueen The fit is fine, however I would prefer them longer.
JCPenney should be commended for selling tall sizes at a reasonable price point. However, I am unhappy that ultra talls are no longer sold. The fit on these jeans is fine, the color black always looks a bit more dressy. I have to tuck them into my boots because of the length. I am pleased with my purchase, but please bring back ultra talls!

Rated 1 out of 5 by jennbmen Great Fit - Can't get over the SMELL
These pants fit great. But that is the only good thing I can say about them. I purchased a pair online. They arrived and when I opened the package, I was blown away by the horrendous smell. I just assumed it was from manufacture and I washed them. And I washed them times 5. The smell did not go away. I called JCP.com and they were very kind and said they would send out another pair. Second time around was a bit better, but still a very noticeable chemical smell (which intensifies when you wear them!). I am really bummed because finding a pair that fit is hard enough - not being able to wear them is even worse!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ReeRee99 The BEST Jeans if you are tall
My search is over. I just wish these came in other colors.I'm 5'10 and about 140 lbs. I usually wear either a 12 or 14 Long. I ordered the 12 Tall in these and they fit perfectly. Not skin tight but def not baggy either. And here's the best part: When I sit down my backside isn't exposed. I can't tell you how much I hate seeing that on women who have no business wearing low-rise jeans. It looks disgusting. These are a great fit, and with a little bit of stretch yet they don't get baggy in the knees. Thank you JCP and Liz Claiborne. Oh, I washed in warm and tumble dried on low. No shrinkage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trv4eva My NEW, 'go to' jeans!
I love these jeans. The fit is perfect. I'm 5'10", short torso, with love handles! ugh. However, these jeans camouflages that whole area of my mid section without giving me the 'mom jean' look! The best feature for me is the smooth back pockets. I don't want, nor do I need, that extra material adding to my full figure bottom. I'm able to wear them with my heels, which are 3inches, boots and flats equally well! Yes, I've washed them in cold water and dried them on medium heat without shrinkage noted! Buy them!

I am almost 5'11". JC Penny is one of the few stores that carries slacks in tall sizes. These were not a disappointment. They are a nice in between weight. So they work in all seasons. The fit is nice, especially if you don't want a very low cut pair of jeans. Best of all the price is right.
