Love these jeans..my only complaint is the length. The deion says they are 30.5 inches, but I received two pairs and they were both about 32 inches. Otherwise they are very comfortable, however, they are a thin material. Great for summer. I ordered my normal size of 27, so I'd say they are true to size.
I got these because the wash is amazing - it's kind of a subdued grayish, blackish blue. There was another wash in the Dita petite out at the same time called the Salinas that was similar, but with more fading and abrasion and I liked these better because they looked casual, but not over-the-top like the Salinas did. However, likely due to the very soft, thin fabric, the legs were a bit too wide for me (wider than the Pacific wash, which is a nice thick, tight fabric) so I attempted to shrink them by drying them repeatedly. This caused the nice gray cast on the dye to fade and my pair is now a jarring bright dark bluish-purplish color. The legs now fit me but the color is awful, lol. Also, these tend to stretch out a lot during the day so I find I have to launder them frequently. These aren't like the Big Sur fabric, which is thin but not treated and thus retains its shape nicely throughout wears. I wouldn't recommend these because for $189, I expect jeans that make my backside look fantastic, and I think that these just have too thin of a fabric to take as stark of contouring as say, the Pacific wash. They might work for you however if you have wider thighs in relation to hips, won't put them in the dryer ever, and don't necessarily want amazing butt contouring.
COH are the most comfortable of the "premium" jeans I own. The fabric is supr soft and with the spandex,the extra give is very forgiving :) Shop carefully online as the price for the jeans varies all over the place. And look online for coupons as many of the sites often offer promotions. And least I forgot, these jeans make your bottom look great. I've had male and female friends tell me this and I'm a 35 yr old mother with 2 kids!! :)
This is my first pair of COH jeans and they are fabulous. The colour is gorgeous and will be perfect to dress up with heels or dress down with ballet flats. I'm quite short at only 5" so will still need to get these taken up a couple of inches. The size is great - normally I'm a 6 US and 28 fits perfectly. They are so soft and feels like I'm wearing sweat pants not jeans so I will definitely be purchasing more denim from this brand.
