In short, this is one of the best and most comfortable casual flared jeans that I have tried on in recent memory. I'm 5'5'' (130 lbs) and normally wear a size 27/28 in J Brand, Citizens, Joe's and Paige Premium. I took these in a size 28, and though I've recently lost a bit of weight, these still fit fine. After a day of wear, they only get a little loose in the tush for me since I have virtually no junk yet athletic thighs, but I think it wouldn't be a dealbreaker for most. The fabric is nice and thick compared to other styles, which is a plus for a casual jean because I don't have to worry so much about crotch wear and tear, which mostly kills all other jeans for me within a year of frequent wear. The wash is great and the fading placement is flattering, but not really anything to write home about. But very lovely jeans!

I absolutely love the fit, quality, and style of these jeans; however, I'm SO disappointed because they run so big. I am a size 4-6 (5'6", 123 lbs) and normally take a 27/28, but I need these jeans in a size 26. The waist gaps in the front and back and the butt is a little loose for being a brand new pair of jeans. I know that they will not fit after just a few hours of wear. I will be returning for a size 26 since these are one AMAZING pair of jeans. Soft lightweight material, stretchy, comfortable, dark wash ... the perfect jean!

These jeans are good for balancing out thicker legs, as another person wrote. I find this fit more flattering than the Kelly, which I also have owned. I own two pairs of these jeans, one in good shape and the other destroyed for weekend wear. They are a good fit but I will say, they do stretch out quite a bit with a whole day of wear. The wash on these is slightly lighter than the Kellys, definitely a medium wash.
