Bottom Line: The jeans are comfy and look as sleek and sophisticated as pricier brands. They’re well tailored in the hips and butt and fit snugly from thigh to ankle. The inseam is an extra-long 33 inches -- a smidge too long for petite women.


Good for: taller women; boot and heel-lovers; budget conscious; moms who want a tailored pant.

About Our Parent Tester: 5’9”, long and lean

What Our Parent Tester Thought:
“The jeans fit me very well, in comparison with other jeans I would normally wear. They didn't stretch out and get baggy by the end of the day. The demi panel around the belly was snug and became somewhat uncomfortable by the end of the day.” 

“I think these jeans are a great choice for the first and second trimester. I'm about to enter my third trimester, and I think I would need to get a size up for them to be comfortable around my belly."

“The length of the jeans was very long. I am tall (5’9”) and often order a long length when I buy jeans. These would not need a special order, as they were plenty long. I was able to roll them up almost three inches for a more casual look.”

“The jeans are adorable and a great fit. I’ve worn them with flats and with boots. I receive many compliments on them.” 

“A trendy woman with a chic and casual style would like these jeans. They are nice enough to wear for a casual day at work and can be dressed up with a nice top for a dinner at night.”
