I was super excited to get these but found myself disappointed. Three main issues were problems for me (though might not be problems for everyone) 1) When I bought them I was looking at a generic image of the 525s and just changed the color assuming they were the same just a different color. They aren't. Though the Sapphire color does not have pocket flaps, the denim defense does. Maybe it's my mistake, but it seems like a really easy one to make. 2) They fit just fine at the hips and waist, but hugged too tight at the thighs. They ended up fitting more like skinny jeans than straight leg jeans, so if you have larger thighs or are bothered by tight fits from hip to knee, these aren't for you. 3) Though mostly cotton, they feel stretchy and somewhat thin. Not necessarily a problem for everyone, but if you're looking for a nice rugged everyday jean, these might not be for you.
Love all but the back pocket flap of 525™ Perfect Waist Straight jeans in Denim Defense

I have 525™ Perfect Waist Straight jeans in Denim Defense (the darkest Blue and they fit great. I have a curvy rear and smaller waist. However, I would much prefer that the back pockets not be 'flap design'. Instead, be the same design as the sapphire and sky. When a woman has a 'ample' rear,the flap pockets are a bit much.
This is a great pair of jeans...they do run a smidge on the small side but after a few hours they fit okay...I say okay because Iike a bit looser feeling to my jeans but they did look great! Not sure if I would order the next size up....
Fairly straight down the hip, finding jeans can be difficult, most look like jodhpurs. These fit fantastic. Hidden elasticized waist prevents any back gap. Subtle belt loops. No crotch fabric bunching up. Awesome.
I wanted a higher waisted jean that I could wear while chasing after a little one and would also not show any panties when I bent over. These do exactly that and I love how I look in them.
I will say these are very much vanity sized. My sizing is 28" natural waist, 36" lower waist, 39" hips (measured around widest part of butt) and bought these in a size 4. I know that levi's sizing would put me in a 10 but I was swimming in those.
I have been a Levi's jeans purchaser since 1974. They have always fit my body style perfectly. These even beat out the very trendy expensive jeans out there. The only thing I have noticed, is that I normally wear a 14 in most other jeans, but I order a 12 in Levi's. that's ok with me, makes me feel thinner!
I have looked all over for a great fitting Jean in the dark blue thank you levis for making this Jean. Please do not discontinue. I was an advit levi Jean wearer in my teens to 20's and though I'm a 4, I could not find the perfect fit now that I'm 51 you have regained me as a customer.....great fit, very comfortable, never binding. Love the stretch and color can dress up or dress down. I had young ladies in their 20's compleminting me and asking about the jeans. Thank you levis!!!!,
I am not blessed with a round tush, and these are the ONLY jeans I've found in a LONG TIME that actually are flattering on my No-Butt Chassis. I am a size 4, so I could only find ONE in the store -- but I am here to pick up a couple more! Slim through the legs, but not the "bouquet of flowers" skinny ankles cut! Fits over my boots. Medium rise. Zipper has enough teeth to feel useful. Rear Pockets have a flap and button. Front Pockets are very shallow... I was disappointed, my phone doesn't fit. Slightly stretchy, and in looking at the composition; it appears to be 1% elastic in the weave.
I bought these jeans due to the color and style. I was very impress with the fit and how they look on. I could easily dress them up or make casual. Levi's need more styles like this for women with fuller figures.
I love 525's. I have all 3 colors. The length is great and not too tight on the ol'muffin. The lightest color seems to run just a little bigger than the other 2, and have a softer feel to them- more casual. I am 5'6, about 160 lbs and carry all my weight in my stomach due to a shorter torso. I wear a 12 medium. I wish I knew what other Levi's fix like the 525's to more of a variety in colors! I really need a black pair of jeans that fit like these!
I recommend this product!

I feel so dumb not knowing but can someone please tell me what the vote number is all about and how does one vote? Everyone seems to love these jeans and I think I'm gonna order a pair or two but I'm really perplexed about the vote number, lol. I am 5'1" and weigh 146, is there anyone out there that loves these w/ my body frame. I lost 45 pounds so I'm downsizing like crazy and I'm just not sure if these are good for someone like me.
