Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection Love these Lee pants, been wearing them for yrs. Because of the elastic at the waist there is no stopping to hike them up like other pants. Little more room in the upper leg than other styles. As a yo yo dieter, I have went from 18 to 10's. I do have a problem with the sizing. According to the chart I should be wearing a size 14 since my waist is 32 and hips 42. But I just ordered size 8 because my 10's were too loose. Also the dark blue color is larger than the black color. Go figure ! Try these pants out and I hope you will be as happy with them as I have been.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pants that actually sit at the waist! These Lee's pants with the side-elastic waistband have been my favorite for years. These pants actually sit at the waist and fit comfortably, without the gap of those annoying "mid-rise" pants. However, I now wear a Misses size 4/6 and the smallest size offered in these pants is a size 8. I hope that Lee will soon expand the size range in this style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for work or play! I started a new job as a bank teller and needed some dressier pants. These are a little on the business casual side, but I can dress them up with a nice blouse, dress flats and some jewelry and look quite nice. I also wear a belt to dress them up, even though I don't need one as far as fit is concerned. These pants are very comfortable, even for a nine hour day. The twill fabric is a wee bit on the heavy side for summer, but luckily I work in an air conditioned office. I bought these online, which is usually a no-no for me, as I can be hard to fit. These pants fit extremely well, however, and I'm very happy with my purchase. My main problem is that my waist is small compared to my hips, and usually I end up with a huge gap at my waist. The elastic sides help with that and they fit perfectly at both the waist and the hips. I have a shorter inseam as well, and the length on these is perfect. SO, if you are taller at all, check the measurements on the inseam and take it into account. You may very well need a long. But for me they work great, and fit well in the hips, waist and length, and I like the tapered legs. I purchased these in black, navy and khaki, so I have a pair to go with every blouse in my wardrobe. Since I don't wear jackets or blazers I don't feel the need to buy dressier (and more uncomfortable!) pants. I'm thinking about buying the one other color that Lee offers, and I just wish that they offered more colors. An offering in gray might be nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fit !! I ordered these Lee Jeans in all three colors in Misses 18 short (29") ! The fit seems to be true to size, although a little bit big in waist, and hips . If they slightly shrink, they should be about perfect !

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed I have lost 80 pounds and was so excited to buy my first pair of jeans in 25 years! I had always worn Lee jeans before and loved them. I read some of the reviews about the white lines running down the pants and how much they stretched out after just wearing them for a few minutes. Also mentioned was the fraying at the seams but I was so used to the quality of the old Lee jeans that I thought those were just flukes but boy was I shocked when I received my jeans and tried them on and ALL 3 things happened. They were frayed at the seams and stretched out almost immediately after wearing for a few minutes and I mean really stretched out and after I washed them just once there comes the white lines and worse fraying. Needless to say, they went straight back to the store. What has happened to the quality of Lee jeans? Totally disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even the "short" runs long I really like these jeans, they feel good and fit good. My only comment is that the "short" size also runs a bit long. I am 5'4" and the short is sitting on the top of my foot. I hope the jeans will draw up a bit when they are washed and dried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would like these sold in store I have worn these jeans for 15+ years. They are getting hard to find. I hope you will continue to carry them. It seems with over 2,200 positive reviews JCPenny would carry more sizes and color options especially lighter jean color. Please consider putting these style of jeans (side elastic Jeans by lee)back in your stores. I would highly recommend these jeans especially, if you like waist jeans that do not show... ..when you bend over or squatting, they are a comfortable fit, and relaxing jeans, no matter your size.

what is side seam measurement

The description shows inseam measurement. I'd like to know the side seam measurement of misses 10 short and petite 10-not short. I'd like to order, but not sure which would be the better fit for me. Hate having to pay return postage to make exchange. Thank you
Asked by: mnlady
I don't know the measurements. What I found is that when I and my daughter got the short instead of average, they were too short in the crotch--made them very low waisted. I am 5'3" and my daughter is 5'2"

Do these pants run true to size?

For example if you normally wear a size 14; would it be advisable to order a size 14 even though these pants have an elastic waste?
