"Jeans fit like a glove and feel like butter." — chey2enne
"These are comfortable stretchy skinny jeans that aren't so thin (or excessively stretchy) that they look like jeggings. The wash is great and they fit nicely." — RomanticLily
"Love these jeans! I have a major struggle with skinny jeans because my typical waist size (25) doesn’t match up with my legs/thighs size (probably a 27) in this style. I have athletic legs, so anyone else with this issue should love that these stretch and don’t make you feel squished in. I even wore these to Thanksgiving and never felt uncomfortable! Love the high waist too." — CAtoSC
"I love these jeans! High-quality material, nice fit. I have a small waist and wide hips and finding the right fit isn’t always easy, these stay in place and will definitely purchase this brand again." — LupeG
"Perfect everyday jeans! Just enough stretch to make them comfortable all day long. Great fit and the high waist is ideal for keeping lines long and lean!" — Amanda722

"These jeans have the perfect amount of stretch. I like the color, it's appropriate to wear to work. I also like the ankle length. I am 5'3" ~117 lb, and these jeans fit perfectly around the waist. They have enough stretch to fit over my thighs. I just roll up the ends one time to wear with ankle booties." — JaneLaB
"Great fit for curvy girls and love the coated 'leather look.' I wear a 12, 5'8" and size 12 fit great! Very flattering and fantastic high rise." — MTworkinMama

"Finally, skinny jeans I don't have to constantly tug on to get to stay up. I can't believe these haven't sold out yet. They're true to size, too. I got these in my usual size 27. I'm 5'2" 120 pounds with measurements of 36-31-37." — AddictedToQuality
