What reviewers say:

Everybody is talking about how awesome these slim, straight-leg jeans fit and feel — over 16,000 Amazon shoppers have given them a perfect five-star rating.

"I am very impressed by these Lee jeans," one happy shopper said. "They are very soft and comfortable and the fit is perfect. ... Being middle-aged, I didn't want low riders, I wanted something that would enhance an older woman's figure. These jeans actually make me look slim and sleek. ... The straight legs are not tight at all, which is nice if you wear boots or Uggs — it does not outline their shape and look silly and also looks good tucked in! The jeans also look nice with heels! Lees are reliable when it comes to sizing."

A wise customer wrote, "I don’t feel as if my pants need to be hiked up constantly. Also, I am way past the age of wearing everything skin-tight. There has to be some clothes for the older woman and these are it."

"I like that the waist doesn’t form a bucket when I squat," said another five-star fan. "I like that the pant legs are small enough that they don’t bunch up inside my tall boots but aren’t so skinny that they cut off my circulation ..."

"Yay! No more muffin top!!!" said a grateful shopper. "I love the fit of these jeans. I have three pairs now and wear them all the time. No more tugging my pants up, so I don’t flash trouser cleavage! I am a tall gal of 6 feet and low-waisted jeans never worked for me. My torso is too long to safely wear low-waisted pants without showing too much skin that bubbles over the waistband. These jeans fit perfectly, above the hips so they don’t slide down, they are long enough in the inseam with is a rare find for me. The fabric has a little stretch for comfort but is not clingy ... Thank goodness there is a higher waist option for us tall girls."

Though this final shopper titled their review, "Perfect fit," they advised: "They fit good. Are very comfortable and look nice. I’m 5’7" the only complaint is I would like them to be a couple inches longer. But they still look good and don’t look like they are way too short. So that being said, very happy with them."

Not your mom's mom jeans. And definitely not dad jeans.
