Not All Catherine Boyfriend Jeans Fit the Same
on October 3, 2013
I kind of have a like/dislike relationship with these jeans. Here's what I mean...I am having trouble finding the right size but...I like their look. I have so far ordered 4 pairs of the Catherine Boyfriend jeans! Here's my experience:
I started out buying the distressed version in a size 12, based on the sizing chart. They were way too large in the waist and became even more so after wearing them for a few hours. However, I liked the fabric. So, I ordered another distressed pair in a size 10. They too loosened up in the waist after a few hours of wear but were still wearable. Not ready to give up because truly I have such a darned difficult time finding jeans that fit...doesn't every woman?...I ordered a pair in a size 8. The size 8 fit well in the waist but were now snug in the legs but with the stretch in the fabric, after a couple of hours were fine. Okay, size 8 it is.
When I decided I wanted a pair of these Catherine Boyfriend jeans without the distressing I ordered a size 8. They were smaller than the size 8 in the distressed! Apparently, not all Catherine Boyfriend jeans fit the same. Sigh. I continue to wear the distressed jeans and they're okay for around the house.
Good luck to you. If you can't stand this kind of hassle or better yet you live in an area that offers a great shopping selection, then I say skip this. Go and try on some jeans.
