weird tight shape
I was so excited about this hat, love the pattern and thought I would like the shape of it. But once I tried it on I was surprised at how tight it is - and I have a small head! it's like a super tight stocking cap, totally flattened out my hair and was not flattering at all.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Perfect lightweight stretch cord
I love these. The color is amazing (black cherry), the lightweight fabric is stretchy and soft and feels more like velvet, and the fit is perfect! I went with my standard J Brand skinny size (which is smaller than the size I get in their flares) and they are great. The waist doesn't pinch at all. I'm so excited to wear these - once i get them shortened.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Great Color!
I've been watching these jeans for ages and was so happy when they went on sale. I find in JBrand jeans I wear a bigger size in their flares then in their skinnies, so I went with that flare size and it was a good choice. I love the color, and the twill is stretchier than I expected. The twill skinnies looked horrible on me because of the mid-rise, but these are great! Also, the flare at the bottom was not as significant as I was expecting. I think they look more like a bootcut than a bell bottom.

not for me
I was so excited about the colorful jeans, and could not decide between the blue, red and pink. I tried the pink pair and I was so disappointed. I guess I just can't wear the mid-rise - it looks dumpy on me. That's probably because I have a straight boyish frame and in order to get the higher waist big enough to fit, the rest of the jeans are just too big and poof out in the wrong places.The twill isn't stretchy as others have noted so it's not at all forgiving. I would love to try a low-rise version, if only they made it.

cute but not for me
I hate how the sizing of JBrand jeans is so inconsistent. I ordered these in a size that works for me in the lovestory and heartbreaker, which is usually bigger than the size i need in JBrand skinnies, but these were just too tight. I had tried on the gigi in this size in a store and they looked cute but I don't like the little flare at the bottom, so I thought these would be a good alternative but just didn't work because the fabric is very different. The gigi was soft, light and stretchy and these are much more rigid which also wouldn't be great in hot weather. I'm 5'3" and these bunched at the bottom. Sadly they had to go back and my search for white skinnies continues.

great interesting basic
I love the double layer of the skirt, which means it's comfy and light but won't show every line. I also like the loose stretchy waistband. The skirt can be worn longer (almost to my knees) which is ideal because I think I'm a little too old for minis. The one thing about that is the bottom is a little tight so no big strides while wearing it like that. I had a baby recently so I was unsure of what size I am, but I've been wearing size 28 jeans and the small fit in this skirt. I have a pretty straight frame, and the medium was too loose in the hips and back.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

great jeans
I was looking for a legging type jean that didn't look like a legging, and I recently had a baby so I was worried about something creating a muffin top. These are the perfect compromise for me. The stretchy waistband fits and was never too tight. It still fits as my belly shrinks, and they feel like actual jeans rather than leggings while still being stretchy. I did get a size bigger than the other jeans I have been wearing. I love them!
