Great jeans, bad sizing!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: NYDJ Women's Marilyn Straight Leg Jean (Apparel)
I love NYDJ but my biggest beef is the inconsistent sizing! Not only does it vary from style to style but from color to color!! Black invariably is larger than any other color.
Once you know this, however, you can compensate. I only tolerate this because once you figure out your size the jeans look and feel terrific!

Thanks for the review. so, how do you know what size to get? Can these be found in a department store? I am a size 8 and would love to try them but don't want to have to send back over and over due to the sizing problems. thanks.

You really must try them on. Macys carries them. Supposedly you should order 1 size smaller than usual but since each pair. and each style, seems to be different, who knows? Try them on!

the comment was made that fit varied from colour to colour: I did notice that the description included measurement differences. For instance the straight-leg marilyn in brown is an 11" rise but in the black and blue versions listed a 9.75" rise. This could make the difference in fit that is mentioned. I also noted that some have 1% spandex, some as much as 4%. The fabric itself varies from colour to colour. There is a 'hayden' style listed in twill which I assume one would find the most unforgiving as far as stretch. When unable to try things on read the reviews, consider the variables. My experience was true-to-size, found the 1% and the 4% spandex blend equally as comfortable.
