These jeans fit like a glove. Not too tight & not too loose. The slight curve style is perfect for my shape. I recommend these jeans to any woman who has a post pregnancy belly. When your old jeans fit you everywhere else but the waist, this is the style for you.
I love these jeans. I looked for jeans for a long time to fit my plus-size shape. If you carry more weight in your stomach; but your legs are not that heavy, these are the perfect jeans. The rise is slightly lower than some other jeans I own; but once I got used to it, I actually prefer it ... not too low -- just hits right under the belly button. Nice dark wash. My only complaint is that the front pockets are not deep enough; but it's a minor issue.
Just got these jeans and I would have to say they fit just as described. I have slim legs, not much bottom and my waist is too big, I love the way these fit through my hips and thighs. They even fit at the waistband. I just wish they would come to my actual waist rather than 2 inches lower in front. With this rise, the jeans cut straight across the biggest part of my belly which just empahsizes the problem area. Also, with the stretch I will definitely need to wear a belt which will add even more emphasis to my big old belly. I checked out Levi's 512 perfect shape jeans that "fit at the waist" but they have the exact same rise! 10 3/4". Please Levi's - make jeans for us that come up to our actual waist where we can cinch in and make it look like we have some shape! If rise isn't a concern for you, I would recommend these jeans. They fit just as described and the color is nice and dark. But with where they hit on my stomach I will be pulling them up all day long. I would return them if I hadn't gotten them on a great sale. I'm kind of tall 5'7" so maybe if they were offered in a tall the rise would be a little better? I don't know.
