amazing jeans!
These MIH jeans are amazing. They are very flattering on my tall, curvy figure. I'm 6' and weigh 140 lbs. and ended up with the 29. The length is perfect with a 3" heeled boot or shoe. I got many compliments on them wearing them out last weekend. I was torn between the size 29 or 30, so I ordered both to try them. They both fit well, but I went with the 29 given that other jeans I have stretch and give quite a bit. After washing them, they shrank a small bit, but not enough to no longer be comfortable. They do give a tiny bit after wearing, but not as much as other jeans that I own! If you're between sizes and the smaller size has a bit of give, then go with that one, but if it's tight, then go a size up as they do not stretch out as much as other designer jeans like Citizens. Having the slit pockets in the front helps keep a smooth base underneath longer tops or tunics, which is nice as these jeans are very fitted up top and in the thighs and then flare out from the knees.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Stretched out
When I got these at first, they fit great, I washed them in cold and let them air dry, and I'm wearing them today for the first time. 2 hours in and they're stretched out and do not look or feel that flattering any longer. I'm REALLY let down as I got the same size (30) that I got in my other Maria (dark blue) High Rise jeans and they don't stretch out at all! Now I'm stuck with $180 jeans that I most likely won't wear that often! I've never had an issue like this with any of my JBrand jeans - and I have 5 pair! I don't know if a smaller size would help the bagging at the knees and the backs of the legs or not? I would definitely recommend sizing down though as a starting point.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

super cute and comfy
I never thought that skinny jeans could be so comfortable until J Brand. These are really fun and cute. The royal blue color is to die for. The twill material is thin, so they're wearable in the summer. I actually wore them to the USOpen last weekend with a black tank and ballet flats and felt comfortable AND fashionable at the same time. Sometimes a tough combo to get. I'm pretty tall (6 feet) and these hit my ankle at the perfect location for flats or ankle high gladiators. The mid-rise is nice too, as I'm not a size 0 and have curves. I'm hoping to wear them through the Fall with Chelsea style booties or tucked into taller boots. Definitely worth the purchase! I wanted to order the red ones too but they were sold out. :-( The color will bleed though, even after a washing. They rubbed off on my taupe leather bag and it won't come out of the leather.
