I followed the size chart guidelines on Levi's website and they are PERFECT. Fit like a glove and are very flattering! And they don't have the ridiculous holes and abrasions that have been in style lately! (The whiskering on the "Rocking Blue" wash isn't very noticeable, either.)
When I first put them on they dug into my waist a little when I sat, but they soon molded to my shape. Today is the fourth day in a row I've worn them, and they haven't sagged out of shape at all. The material feels like good, sturdy jeans material with a bit of stretch. The inseam is 31.5", which is a little shorter than I usually wear, but they're fine with flats, tennies, and of course tucked into boots, which all I really wear anyway.
In short, I am extremely pleased and plan on buying more and making these the only jeans I wear.
The only drawback is that the pockets are shallow, almost too shallow to fit my cell phone... but that's the case in almost all women's pants these days, unfortunately.
*****EDIT: I ordered a pair in the "Raindrop" wash and there are small "fashion" abrasions--so heads up if you're avoiding those. They are quite small and not very noticeable. Also, the labels apparently have the inseams wrong: so far I've ordered 3 pairs of these jeans and (according to the labels) they've come in 30", 31" and 32" inseams, but in reality they're all the same length. I used an actual measuring tape to get the 31.5" measurement I mentioned above.
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.
Just a note--currently the size drop down box lists the Short and Long as Small and Large. I did alert Amazon so hopefully they'll fix it. I bought the Rocking Blue because I didn't like the fancy pockets on the darker wash and the others didn't come in Short. I added two pictures to demonstrate the fit from front and back. I forgot to mention that while there are pockets in the front, they're only capable of holding a horizontal tube of chapstick.
I did order a size up. Normally I wear a size 12, so I got a 14. I am 5'9" tall and in the healthy BMI range. In other words, I'm not a stick, but I am also not technically overweight. I was so excited when these jeans finally arrived (they took a while), and immediately put them on. Or rather, TRIED to put them on. I could barely get them up. They are cut very small, not just on the hips but the whole things. They were also tight on my calves, and there was no way I could zip them up. I also found the rise very short.
VERY disappointing; not even close!
I had stopped wearing Levi's years ago because the fit was so weird. If I could get them to fit my hips, then I had a huge gap at the waist, but skin-tight on my thighs.
I wonder where they are getting their fitting models? I notice the pants are made in sri lanka, maybe they use Asian fitting models who tend to be very small and then just stretch the measurements vertically for the larger (taller) sizes without also changing proportions?
In order to fit comfortably I would have to go up to a 16 or even 18, and sorry, yes, I DO have an ego and just not willing to do that when I can wear jeans from Eddie Bauer, LL Bean, Lee's or the Gap and wear a size 12.
Levi's- if you are wondering why you have been on the verge of bankruptcy- maybe paying attention to little details like SIZING and women's egos would help you market your product.
