I have bought the Kelly fit before and have loved them. I have been buying the Ava cuts for the last year or so and decided I needed another Kelly pair in a 29. I did not read the other reviews and I should have. I definately should have bought a size down, they are definately too big in the waist/bottom/thigh area after 1 wear. I unfortunately altered the hem to wear with flats so am unable to return / exchange. :(
Citizens have changed the quality and sizing of their jeans. I've been wearing this cut and color for many years...and was very disappointed when I received these in the mail. The material is much thinner and they hardly have any distressing. I'm normally a 27...have been a 27 for years...and these were HUGE!!! I also tried the 'Ingrids' at Nordstrom...same thing, way too big and the material thin and plain. So if these have been your favorites for many years like they have for me, beware that they have changed quite a bit and order down.
Great jeans. Long inseam, I'm 5'9'' and even with highest heels the ends still touch the ground - which I love! The ones I have which are brand new seem to have slightly thinner denim which gives a dressier look. I found them a liitle big at the waist on me and maybe should have bought a smaller size ( I have 28 - am normally 28 in J Brand, R&R, paige, 27 in SFAM) but with a belt its fine and I still love them! I would say they fit a half to full size big.
