It's always so hard to order jeans of any kind off of the internet, so my expectations weren't especially high. Imagine my surprise when they arrived and fit! They are a little heavier than I expected, so I'll probably use them more in the winter months, but the are soft and very comfortable. I washed both pairs before I wore them, as suggested, and they washed fine. Just remember, they are PAJAMA jeans, not regular jeans.
