Great Alternative to Skinnies.
I have a super active lifestyle and jeans are my staple garment. My closet is dominated with skinnies. These felt like I was putting on skinnies as they are so comfortable and move well with the body. I have athletic thighs and although they felt snug on my thighs, they were not constrictive, nor did they do the migration towards the floor. They hug your hips and thighs and then relax out just below the knee. Fabric is very comfortable and soft, lending to more of a trouser feel. I will have to have them hemmed, but the cut will not lose the silhouette. They are so comfortable I considered sizing down, but reconsidered, as after wearing them around the house for a couple hours they had not relaxed out at all.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Great Go To Shorts
These shorts have a great drape on your hips, giving them a casual relaxed vibe, while still feeling pulled together. You can dress them up or down, the slits at the sides, give them that extra edge I like. The wash is a true black with no fading after several washes. Only down side is that they stretch out quite fast and laundering after two wears required. Would suggest sizing down in the Sharkbite cut.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Mile Long Legs! Shorter inseams beware!
Another beautiful pair from Mother! However!! If you have shorter, muscular legs like I do, this may be a challenging pair to pull off. I am 5'7" 130lbs. My inseam is 31". These fit my upper legs like a skinny then expanded midcalf as a flare. Because of my short inseam I would have to hem, even to wear with heals, losing a considerable amount of the flare. The wash is really rich, the fabric is super comfortable and the waist and hips fit very well, but the rest looked awkward on my muscular legs, especially when I experimented with a heal and folded over the excess length. I definitely did not look like the model:) I order my usual size of 28, but may try the 29, and see if a more relaxed size will give a better silhouette.

Great Silhouette
COH never disappoints me! An ease to the fabric without feeling like a jegging. The wash is rich and does not fade with washing. This style balances out my muscular thighs, however, I do not have a long inseam( 31"), so had to hem and did lose some of the nice lines with the narrower leg. So, if you have shorter legs and are not inclined to want to wear heals, this may not be your best choice.

Not Quite for my Athletic Build
Love Mother denim, but somehow these did not meet my expectations from this label. The fit was not at all flattering or comfortable on my athletic physique. The rise was somewhat awkward for me, and it seemed to feel binding on my thighs instead of hugging them as my other pairs of Mother do. The wash was great, but I felt the material was not to par with what my other pairs of Mothers have provided.

Relaxed Alternative to Highwaisted Short
These are a fun pair of cut offs! Button hole closure gives a loose drape to waist, and although the sides have small slits up the seam, they give good coverage without a high waist, which is not flattering on my athletic build. I could have gone down a size, but happy with the relaxed feel of the size I ordered. The wash is a true black and after multiple washes there are no signs of fading. However, they do relax/stretch after one wear. Happy with purchase, always pleased with Shopbop's service.

A Little on The Awkward Side.
I love James Jeans!!! The pockets area always flattering for my ample behind and the legs are usually very accommodating for my athletic legs. The biggest problem is that the leg remains wide all the way down, loosing its effect of a flattering silhouette. Being a coated denim, It seems more logical that the piece would want to hug your entire leg, and not have a tiny flare at the ankle or bulk at the knees. This is the first time a pair of James that won't be staying in my closet.

J Brand Not for my Athletic Body.
This is my third failed attempt at trying J Brand. These are a really great styled jean. Well made as all J Brand, but for me personally they do nothing to compliment my body. I have an athletic build,so if you happen to have robust thighs these may not be the jeans for you. If not, these are a super fun pair and the zipper placement is quite flattering, big thighs or not.

Great Price Point Jean.
Cant go wrong with Blank Denim's price point. Still feel and style like good quality jeans. I have an athletic build and must be cautious of pocket size and placement. The back pockets are a little small for my preference, but still overall a very good weight of denim and nice styling.

Fun, Well Fitting Casual Jean.
First pair of Mother jeans, and I am not disappointed. Very comfortable fit, with nice pocket placement and size. Fabric borders on a jegging weight, but is still a jean. Very well placed stressing marks. They do stretch out a little sooner than I prefer, within second wearing, so will need more laundering, not sure how they will hold out as of yet. Overall, happy with the purchase.
