Nice but Doesn't Live Up to the Hype
on October 3, 2012
I bought these after reading rave reviews for NYDJ jeans. I like these at the Amazon price of $24, which was about how much I spent on the grey Target jeggings that these were replacing (the Target ones stretched out completely). I would be disappointed if I bought at the usual NYDJ price.
First, the good. They are nice and thick so as not to show every lump and bump. The waist is also nice and high, unlike the awful low rise jeans that give you a muffin top and give you plumber's crack in the back. They are substantial enough to be worn in a business casual office environment.
Now the bad. The material can be a bit scratchy if you have dry or sensitive skin. It doesn't stop me from wearing them but at times it is a bit itchy.
As for sizing, I am 5'4" and weigh about 135 with small legs and a larger waist. A size 4P worked for me--they were a bit tight at first but stretched out with a couple of wears.
