Somewhat Overrated
Ok maybe it's just me, but I find the rise horrifically low on these and the waist to be huge. That being said I agree with the other reviewers that there is nice "give" in the legs which are super fitted without being overly tight. Agree with the first reviewer that they are not particularly flattering. especially if you have shorter legs and the ankles are hitting too low. These are depicted as crops in the photo and showing the thinnest part of the ankle is more flattering than having the pant leg rumpling at the top of your shoe. Again the fabric is lovely and the legs are comfy but the low, large waist problem is beyond solving with a belt or alteration for me with a slightly longer than average torso. Considering sending them back. If the rise was one inch higher I would probably consider keeping them.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Most bizarre fit ever!
Bought these with great hopes of a slouchy jean that offered a long, lean look but was disappointed. If you are even slightly pear shaped these are most unflattering. The waist is HUGE and taper to a very snug fit over the calves. These remind me of the reverse fit jeans that the Gap sold at one time : fail. If you have long thin legs and a slightly wider waist, however, these might be a good option for you. ..For me though... back they are going.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Great Quality but Best for Taller Girls
I really wanted to love this top. The quality of the fabric and design was spot on but the XS was just too long and baggy for my 5'4" slightly pear shaped, athletic frame. It hit my legs at an unflattering low angle and made them look even shorter. Probably a five star buy if you've got longer, super thin legs.

Bizarre fit and not like model.
I wanted to love this sweater and when I took it out of the package I really thought I would but its much longer and narrower than it appears. The model is of course much taller than I am since I'm only 5'4". I'm usually an XS with room to spare . The body of the sweater fit ok but its a very close streamlined, not for layering fit. The arms are crazy tight and the entire thing itches so wearing it sans layers is not an option. Back it goes.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

FAB all around but size down a bit.
I just can't say enough about how perfect these J Brands are. I am 5/4" 115 lbs slightly athletic build and sized down to a 26 from my normal J Brand 27. Even though the rise on these is "low" I found them to be on the higher end of that description and super comfy and flattering with just about every fun top in my closet. Dress em up or down..travel with them..they don't wrinkle and always look correct whatever the occasion. Looking forward to wearing these when the Cali fog rolls in with tall boots and a chunky sweater. Please make more of these J Brand! How 'bout some in cords?

Great Value and Versatility!
I was waffling between purchasing this and the pricier NIXON or a Michelle and decided to check this one out first. What also attracted me to the watch was the fact that you can wear it with both silver and gold jewelry unlike just about every other watch of this type which tend to be either one or the other. I have a small wrist and it doesn't overwhelm my look at all and is perfectly "oversized" even for someone with a petite frame. I do have to have 2-3 links taken out at the jeweler but I think that's typical for these types of watches. A great investment!

Classy but big arm holes.
This sweater does not disappoint in terms of quality and design but it runs extremely large under the arms and sticks out. Debating on whether to keep it and have arm holes tacked down or return.

Not great for even small pear shapes
I had high hopes for these jeans especially after purchasing the J Brand skinny cargos that were the rage last summer. However I found these jeans extremely unforgiving even though I am 5/4" 117 and a 26/27 jean in just about every brand. I found the legs a bit tight, the length not as expected since the fabric "bunched" at the ankle, and the waist extremely large in the 27. I also would not consider these jeans "stretchy" They gave a bit in the waist and remained stretched out in that area as I was trying them on. Simply not flattering unless you have a very thin, straight, curve free build. Sadly back they go .
