3.0 out of 5 stars Furious. Led astray by reviews..., December 26, 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I usually wear a 16/18, I'm on the fence between sizes, but in jeans and pants a size 18 is perfect. Based on the previous reviews I went up to a 20. I put the pants on, and was furious. I would like to point out that these specifically say they are skinny and tapered and if you don't realize that means they will NOT fit like normal rise, bootcut, or straight leg then don't give them a review to go up a size or 2. Know what you are ordering. These are NOT normal cut jeans. They are NOT normal rise. I read the previous reviews thinking the reviewers had realized the cut/style and STILL recommended going up. I have fat thighs and a wide butt, and they were sagging by the time I walked out of the room, to the point I almost sent them back for 2 sizes smaller (or one size smaller than normal) but I didn't. I am going to wash and dry these to see if they shrink, I am also going to buy my normal 18 in a diff color just to be sure I don't go overboard.

These are very skinny fit.
These are very low rise.
These are very tapered at the bottom, not bootcut, not straight, tapered.
If you *actually* know what the above means in terms of fit, get them in your normal size.
If you are not familiar with what the above means or have never tried this kind of fit on in a store, do not buy these; you will not like them.

I'm glad I based my purchase more off of this comment. I'm 5'4 and vary between an 18/20. I was tempted to get a 22 because of the other comments. Instead, I stuck with my gut and got a 20. I just got them in the mail today and tried them on. Perfect! Sure, they're a little snug in the thighs for me, but I expected that and expect it with most if not all skinny pants on us larger women. They are comfortable though and the size was a good choice. I think now if I had gone with a 22, then they would have been too lose in the waist and would have slid down.
In other words, thank you for your comment. I'm glad I read it before hand. :)

Thanks to you, I ordered my real size. They fit perfectly. This is going to be my go-to brand for "novelty" pants in bright colors.

I got these today and wish I saw your post. I also ordered a size up and they are too big. And they ARE NOT tapered. These fit more like a straight cut jean.
