I ordered these jeans after buying the same style in white. While the 14 in white was a perfect fit, this pair is about 11/2-2 inches smaller in the waist. It would be great if all 14's were the same size from the same company. I will be sending these back.
these are my favorite jeans. I had 3 pair in size 12 that I have worn for the past 4 years and they are still in great shape. I gained about 15lbs. and they were getting snug so thought I should get a size bigger . Ordered the size 14 and they are perfect. I hope these will be my stand by jeans until I lose these unwanted pounds and get back to my old jeans. They are so soft and feel like old friends. I like the 512 jean because they come up to my waist but don't bind and they do slim my tummy down and don't give me a muffin top. The boot leg is also easy to get off without removing my shoes if I don't want to and I do wear boots sometimes and they come down over the boot top real nice.
I have been wearing 512 boot cut jeans for years and they always looked great for my body shape. I was told by a rep at levi's that they had to upgrade the style and now the fit is terrible ... can't understand why they changed the fit and fabric. Never will buy again !
I ordered a size smaller based on a couple of the reviews. Overall I think that was the right decision but it seems a bit tight around the tummy area. Not tight enough to return them but it's not as comfortable as the other jeans I ordered (515, 505).
I find the denim is thin and too stretchy!. Cheap looking. Love the rise but after a couple of months look a little shabby. Not my favorite. Would like to see more options in 'at the waist' styles with 99% cotton.
I have always loved the fit of the 512 jeans. It appears that the size has changed. The size 4 is big on me now. I wish you would make the 512 in a size 2S in all the colors. I miss being able to wear these jeans. They were always my favorite. I love the higher waist line and the slim fit.
I had perfectly slimming jeans in the past that fit great so I ordered these online. They were NOT the same. These newer versions have polyester in them so they don't shrink. I actually count on the shrinkage to give me a more fitted look. These just hang. I will not buy these ever again.
