Love C/E, but not this style
Wanted to love these and didn't balk at the price tag because I thought they would be comfortable, attractive and perfect. I have a pair of C/E denim shorts that I love and look similar in style these, but it turns out the cut is very different. I found these to be too big in the waist, ballooning out oddly, and then too snug in the leg to achieve the relaxed boyfriend effect. Also, the wash looked borderline trashy/streaky. Returned.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Beautiful but not right for me
I wanted to love this dress. Read all the reviews and considered carefully before buying. It fits quite large. I sized down one size and it was still a bit roomy. The jersey fabric is soft and hangs nicely. I'm small chested so cutouts weren't a problem when standing still, but if you have a larger bust, you might find the coverage lacking.It's VERY long, but an unfinished hem, so not a problem to take up. Overall I felt too exposed and worried that in the course of every day movement my chest would pop out from the dress. Returned.

OK, needs improvement for taller frames
Love the idea of this. The lightness is perfect in summer, and it has the perfect amount of light compression so you can wear it under anything and not really feel it. However, it is too short for my tall frame, so the bottom rode up uncomfortably with any movement and the clasp at the gusset sometimes poked and was uncomfortable. I got the large and wear a size 31 jean.

Decent jeans
Tried these because I love my other J Brand Marias. These have a LOT of stretch and I found they stretched out and bunched a little more than I like, but mostly comfortable. A lot of bleeding of the dye even after several washes. Thin material and tore after just a month of wearing, something I haven't had happen with my heavier denim Marias.

Very sexy
Fits smaller than expected and lace is slightly scratchy, but overall sexy and comfortable.

Gorgeous
I'm normally a size 11 in footwear and worried the 41 would be too small based on many other reviews. Happily though, they fit well. Definitely a narrow style, but ok for my slightly wide feet. Stiff sandals at first, but break in nicely with wear. Will buy more styles I think.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Love this style - plain and elegant
I ordered this in the blue, in two different sizes this fall. The smaller size ended up fitting better. Very comfortable and flattering dress. My only complain is that the second one I ordered has a sewing glitch and bubbles out weirdly at one side. The first one I ordered doesn't have this problem, so it must have been a one off.

Ok
These are a nice basic - I found that the top was in danger of rolling and looking odd underneath my dresses. Looks great when you're standing still, but while walking, sitting etc, you could see Spanx lines. I prefer the Super Higher Power style.

My favourite
I bought these in the lighter denim wash. Fits a bit large- you may want to size down. The cut is very flattering but you may have to get them taken up - I'm 5'10" and the hem drags on the floor even with 3" heels. The high waist is amazing - comfortable and slimming. Strongly recommend!
