It's hard for me to find jeans that fit... I have a proportionately small waist, big butt and I'm tall, 5' 10" so, they either gap at the waist, they are too tight in the hips and thighs or they are too short... these jeans fit me in all three problem areas! And at a great price... hallelujah!
I searched the entire Internet for plus size slim jeans. Atleast that was in the description. But of course I got a pair of curve jeans that were hanging off my hips and swallowing my thighs. If you have a straight body type with normal size thighs these jeans are definitely not for you.
I ordered these jeans in December, and Love them - perfect fit for everyday, comfortable denim, not too stretchy - I had to go a size up, but otherwise, 5 stars.
In fact, I love them so much that I ordered another pair in the same size and wash last week, but they arrived today and I am so very disappointed. The waist on the second pair is distinctly smaller and the leg opening is over an inch wider, taking them from boot cut to bellbottom. When compared to pair #1, I'd give these zero stars. They will have to go back.
So I guess the solution is to order multiple pairs? As the plus size jeans are not available for in store purchase, I really wish there was more consistency in the cut and fit.
I really like the detailing on these jeans...pockets are so cute...on plus size jeans you don't usually get such a cute choice of pockets...however if I recommended them to a friend I would tell them to order the next size up because they do not have much stretch, especially in the thigh and knee area.
I bought a pair of 525s in addition to these, both in the same size. The 525s fit just fine. These were WAY too small in the waist. Like I couldn't even button them laying down (not that I'd want to). Go up a size (possibly two).
I purchased two of these pair and one of the other color. They are very comfortable. A bit smaller than my other levis in the same size, but the product description does mention they are a slim fit and they do stretch a bit. I usually purchase loser fitting jeans but being a larger person that tends to look sloppy. These jeans are perfect! Love the details on the pockets too!
Jeans are well-made, of course. I have loved Levi-Strauss jeans since I got my first used pair (button fly) in Woodstock (the town. Part of upstate NY). I can tell they are going to last a really long time. Plus, the company has a conscience!
I order the 16M plus which is what I normally wear. I could not get them up over my thighs so I returned them. Took my measurements according to the Levi chart I needed a 20M which I ordered. Got them they were extremely long for someone 5'5" like me but the fit was great until I wore them for about 5 hours and they stretched to a whole additional size. I guess I could have gotten an 18M if I knew they would stretch out so much. Very disappointed for the price and the Levi name expected better.
