Rated 3 out of 5 by frannie Disappointed - Legs fit OK, waist is too LARGE
I bought size 22 petite. I like the feel of the soft slightly stretchy fabric, but have 2 major issues with these jeans.
1 - Don't know if the size runs large or just weird. The waist gaps so much I couldn't keep a shirt tucked in. (and I do NOT have a tiny tummy!) <grin> I would have to pair these jeans with a long shirt that hangs well below the waist to cover the gapping waistband.
2 - If you have a pet with fur, forget it. These jeans are a fur magnet. The cat jumped on my lap and, well, lets just say I had to change into another pair of jeans before I went shopping. I guess it's the stretchy fabric that makes the hair/fur stick like glue. Doesn't happen with my regular denim fabric Lee jeans. If you buy these, keep a WIDE roll of sticky tape handy.
Maybe if I had purchased a smaller size, they would fit me in the waist. But I suspect that the legs would be skin tight. With my age and shape, that paints a scary picture! <grimace>
I have been wearing Lee Relaxed Fit jeans for many years, but with waist side elastic. I will go back to wearing those. They fit me well, waist, legs, everywhere.
These may work for some women, but not for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rduckling Not Impressed with "Premium" Fabric
Fabric is soft, but it feels thin... like it will wear out quickly. The length is just perfect, but they don't fit property in the seat, and they feel like they will stretch out quickly. I like the classic fit much better, which surprised me because I am larger through the hips and thighs and smaller in the waist. Relaxed fit jeans usually work better for me. The only problem with the classic fit was that they are too long. I like them so much better, though. I think I will see if I can get them shortened and return the relaxed fit. The quality of the relaxed fit jeans is really disappointing.

I love these jeans! They are very comfortable! I ordered 2 pair initially and I loved them so much that I ordered another 2 pairs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ME31 Bad buy.
The pants were ordered online and delivered to my home. They had a horrible chemical smell when the package was opened. Maybe the dye? I washed the two pair of pants alone with water and All Free and Clear detergent in my washing machine. Nothing else was added. They were dried in my dryer without fabric softener sheets. They came out with white streaks on the legs of the pants. I washed one pair alone again. The streaks did not come out, but faded slightly. Because I had washed them, I knew they could not be returned. I ordered the same pants last winter, and they were wonderful. I will not be ordering them again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by FrustratedShopper "Adequate" Jeans
I am no longer able to find jeans - of any real, lasting Quality - that fit me in a retail store, believe me I have looked! Thus, I must gamble on an online order which may or may not have to be sent back because of the "allowed variations" in the measurements which make up a particular size. The two pairs I ordered this time, actually fit well enough for me to keep them. I was happily surprised by this because the last two times I've ordered, I had to exchange once each time before finding what I could keep.
However, for the first time in my experience with Lee Jeans, the Quality of the FABRIC is questionable. I have worn one pair TWICE and the fabric has already begun to pill and soften significantly where my thighs rub together and where they rub against my chair. So, instead of being a Quality Jean, they are only Adequate, at best. I'm just not sure how "lasting" they will be; if the fabric doesn't hold up to actual wear - what's the point?

Rated 4 out of 5 by themomster These jeans are the best available @ this time in this price range
I personally still have them altered a bit to make the legs a bit slimmer. If I could have them altered to cover my belly button I would dance a jig! Big girls DO NOT look good w/fat hanging over their jeans and that's what jeans do during this decade. BUMMER!. But I'll still buy'em unless the waist gets lower!
