Women's Essential High-Waist Leggings is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfortable but a little baggy in legs I'm still working on losing my Covid-15 and not always sure of sizes with LL Bean. I'm more of an apple shape, skinnier legs and wider waist. Like 'maplescone' said, the waist band fits away from the body and I haven't worn them long enough to say if it will roll or not. Like "Coloradolover' said, the legs are baggy, but also somewhat form fitting so they look wrinkley, like you can see by the knees of the model in the first picture, only all the way down the legs on me. I have a weird body but I still need clothes to wear back to work this fall (teacher) and I liked them enough to buy 2 different colors. I hope the navy returns to stock soon.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bloopy The fabric on these leggings is thick and soft. The form of them is bloopy. Instead of doing what leggings usually do--use the stretch of the fabric to conform to the body--these presume that if you are an extra large, you must have big thighs and calves. The seams curve out to accommodate this presumption and the pants bulge in the thigh area and the calf area. They are very unflattering. They will probably be good to sleep in on cold winter nights, but I would not wear these in public.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fit on top but loose on legs. I'm hard to fit because I carry my weight all in my torso. My legs are shapely and muscular and are my best feature. I ordered XL for my big belly which worked out fine but then the legs were not fitting my body close, like a want them to. If I went down a size, the legs might fit closer but then the top part would be uncomfortable. They don't work for me but the fabric is substantial and soft enough, and would have been great in colder weather, although not in summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft, substantial fabric, nice shape! I am generally not a leggings person. But I decided to give cotton-rich leggings with a high waist a try, hoping for something very comfortable. I am 5' 4" and 139 lbs. with a small-ish waist (28"?). I usually wear size 8/10 in pants, and medium in knit pants (sometimes size small). Regular Medium in these new leggings fit me perfectly everywhere--hips, legs, length--EXCEPT the waist, which stands out away from my waist all the way around. It does not touch my skin at all, which surprised me. I would like the waistband smaller and tapered in more to be comfortable, but I can live with it. Being over 50, I plan to wear a long tunic with them, and I can tuck a baselayer/cotton top into the waist. Fabric is definitely soft/substantial/quality, which is what I was really needing. These will not bind at all. Have not washed them, but I wanted to share this for others who will be wondering about sizing. Happy with the comfortable fit and will update in a few months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! I'm ancient (83) and vigorously traipse around the countryside every day in jeans. I've been avoiding tights for a long time because the ones I've tried have been too short and so tight I felt naked. These are perfect. Now I know why other women like tights so well. Think I'll get a couple more colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Find I have been searching for leggings that does not have the slippy material that bunches everywhere and is the right length. I found that these legging were I believe I am looking for. The material is the right weight for fall and winter in the south. I wanted a longer length as I didn’t want ankle pants, so I choose medium tall for the 30” length. I liked the wider waistband. They wash very nicely with no shrinking.
