great look, great fit (almost), just size up
on January 21, 2012
I really loved the fit EXCEPT ... the waist was way too small. I'm 5'8, 150 lbs for a bit more reference. I'm always an 8/10 and the 10 fit perfectly in the tush and thighs with no gap in the back (which I LOVE), but it was a bit snug in the waist. The color was also great - I got the lighter wash, but I am exchanging it for a 12.
I can see how someone with a true hour glass shape, someone who is more curvy for example with a lot of definition in the waist, may love the fit of these. But if you're a bit straighter with slight curves, you may want to size up or go with the demi curve levis. I also bought a pair in the demi curve, and the did 10 fit perfectly, it just didn't do the wonders for my tush area quite as well as the bold curve (despite the waist issues).
Also, despite some reviewers saying that the rise was low, I thought it was rather high and closer to the belly button (not to say they were "mom" jean rise necessarily because the straight look was very flattering and the tush was amazing), but I don't think these are low rise. They also weren't too short, I know some reviewers had issues with that. But I think if you're under 5'7'5-8 the length should be okay.
So, in a nutshell, I do like these jeans, they make my butt look fab, I just need to size up.
