HUGE, and very thin and stretchy.
These look great online, but not so in real life. The corduroy is very soft, but thin, and extremely stretchy, so these pants don't suck you in at all, and reveal every lump and bump. Im a tall, curvy US 8/10, and bought these in a 31. Way too big. The waist also gaped a lot, although being high-waisted it wouldn't actually reveal anything. I just have a rule about not buying pants that gape so much you could stash a basketball in the back of the waistband. The waist is extremely high, and while this can look great on well-tailored pants, in these I just looked sort of chunky, which I'm not. They made my legs look thick and truncated, rather than long and curvy. For slimmer, well-toned women these might be ideal, but they're not for me. Thanks goodness for Shopbop's free international shipping and easy returns!
Sizing: Larger than Expected

I had high hopes, but was disappointed!
These are lovely jeans, but not for me. I'm a tall, curvy US size 8/10, and reviews on other website suggested these would be ideal for my shape. Unfortunately, they're fitted right to mid-thigh (ie. the widest part of your leg) and then a relaxed fit from there down. They don't come in much at the knee. My legs looked like tree trunks! I'm usually a 30/31 in jeans, and after the excesses of Christmas and the new year I thought 31 would be ideal, but I probably could have sized down. The denim is very soft, floppy and stretchy, so they don't actually suck you in much. The dark denim is chic, although it did seem to attract fluff in the five minutes I tried them on (I often have this problem with J Brand fabrics), so I had to be careful before repackaging for return. The waist is high, but flattering - if only the shape of the legs was more flattering! Back to bootcut jeans for now, or at least slightly slimmer-fitting flares/wide legs.
