These jeans are pretty comfortable and made well. The front pockets could be a little deeper and the back pockets alittle bit bigger especially for someone who has a fuller rear like myself. it would make your the bottom feel smaller.
I am not a fan of the below the waist jeans. I have a tummy and the style just gives me the "muffin" look. The jeans do fit well every other way and do give you a flat tummy where they cover. I also do not like the flaps on the back pocket. They do not lay flat after you wash them unless you give them a press. I like the dark color but be sure to wash with dark only. They do bleed a lot. I'm sure this will be better the more you wash them. Be sure to wash. them if you are going to be shorting them. mine shrunk about an inch in length. The rest to the fit didn't seem to be affected much. I'm sure it's not noticeable because of the stretch fabric.
Love these jeans - fit is great and the stretch fabric makes them super comfortable. BUT come on Levi's we are not all Short or Medium lengths - I am 5' 7" and they are just long enough but have to wear flats for sure. There are a lot of women taller than me! Need to make these in a long!
I buy a size 12 they fit my body type perfect they are so comfortable I bought 2 pair the first time, I tried them on. The waistband fits with comfort . like most women during my monthly cycle my size goes up to 13-14 so I bought a pair to wear durning that time Love Love Love these Jeans!
I have a figure that is nearly impossible to find jeans that fit. I have a medium sized rump and an extra small waist. These are the only jeans I have ever found that fit me well! The way the waist tapers in on the backside makes them a perfect fit for us curvy girls! Usually I get a large flap in the back that picks up my shirts and makes me look larger then I really am. I will buy these jeans again and again.
I love Perfect Waist Jeans! I am in my 40s. These jeans look great, not too young, not too old and they fit great. No gaping waist, and my rear doesn't show when I bend over! The denim has just enough stretch to move with you, and they do not grow as the day progresses. Nothing better than a great fitting pair of Levis!
These jeans have the interior elastic at the waist which is undetectible from the outside. It makes them fit my curves a little better while giving me a little more "give" while getting them on and off and during wear. They really look great with my platform clogs.
I love the fit of the jeans, I have recently gained a little wait and have had trouble finding the right size. These fit great, the only thing I didn;t like was my own fault. They had the button flap back pockets, and I would not have ordered them if I had noticed, However, they fit well enough that I will keep and wear them
I wish they came in Long, but of all the jeans Levi's sells, they fit the absolute best through the waist and hips without being too low of a rise. I only hope they continue to sell them when I wear these pairs out.
These are well constructed jeans with a slightly elasticized waistband. I like how the waistband looks just like the denim in the rest of the jeans, and that there is no hint that it is somehow elasticized (like the ruching so often seen in elastic-waisted jeans). Nobody will know that your jeans have an elasticized waistband. The dreaded gap in the back is mostly eliminated, and I don't have to be afraid of flashing too much skin if I need to crouch down or stoop over to pick something up.
The fit is not totally relaxed, but it's not anything like wearing skinny jeans. The jeans will stick fairly close to your body, but there will be some extra space for comfort. I think these should suit people with both thicker and thinner thighs, as the cut is quite forgiving.
The wash I got, Midnight Moon was a nice, uniform dark color with minimum sanding. I prefer to see more "grain" in my jeans, but that is a matter of personal taste. This is a general dark, Prussian Blue denim that can either be dressed up or down.
My problem is that for my tastes, the front rise is way too high at 10.5"! This makes me feel constricted, especially when I sit, and the jeans go way up past my belly button. Those of you who prefer a higher rise, but not a "true" high-waisted jean might be happy with this.
Also, if you are used to low- or mid-rise jeans, I would suggest sizing up from your normal Levi's size, as these are "at waist" jeans, and run slightly smaller than the other Levi's jeans I've tried. I tried both my normal size and one size up, and while I could fit into my normal size, it felt kind of tight and pretty uncomfortable on my stomach. The larger size is slightly looser on my legs, but it's more comfortable for my stomach.
Overall, these jeans are not to my tastes, but they are well-constructed, and I would recommend them to somebody else who prefers jeans like these.
Thanks for reading my review, and I hope it was helpful to you!
