I was nervous buying jeans online because they are almost always too tight in my thighs, so I was really happy to get these and have them fit perfectly. I wear a 14 or 16 depending on the brand of pants and I bought a 16 in these and they fit nicely. Also, usually if I find jeans that fit my thighs they are huge in the waist. These were not! So, if you are looking for jeans that are fuller in the butt and thigh but not huge in the waist, give these a try. They fit a bit snug at first but they have stretch so, they are still comfortable and stretched a nice amount within a short amount of time.

OMG! I can’t believe I finally found black jeans that fit me perfectly with long legs!!! I’m just super happy, over the moon! They fit like my Silver Suki jeans but are much cheaper! I have spent years dyeing my blue jeans black, but now I can just buy these! 🙂 Fits me perfectly, long legs, and affordable! I will be buying more!
I am 5’4 and usually wear a size 16. I got these in a 16 short and am very pleased. They are the perfect length and fit comfortably. I have wider hips than my waist, so I always have to wear a belt with other jeans. These are cinched in slightly ad the waist so I dont have to wear a belt! I will buy again in more colors.
I bought a pair of classic straight at a store and liked them so much I wanted another pair in a different color. Too lazy to drive to the store I ordered from Amazon. I scanned the tag of the first pair to make sure I was getting the same pair. The jeans I got from Amazon are slightly different from the first pair. They fit snugger, especially around the calf. It makes it so they fit more like a slim boyfriend style. I wanted a true straight style that didn’t hug my calves. I wanted them to fit like the first pair, not too loose, not too tight. I don’t know if it because it’s a different color (different denim). Amazon pair are thicker and not as soft. The waist fits well though, doesn’t stretch out too much or fall down. Unfortunately, I had already removed tags and washed, so I’m stuck with them. Not horrible but not the same as first pair. Why is it so hard to find perfect jeans.
Some great things about these jeans: the knees are neither tight, nor baggy. The ankles are a true straight cut that is not flaired, so comfy and easy to get into, but with a nice long straight line from hip to ankle that flatters the figure, and way more appropriate for grown up women to wear than all those spray-painted-on looking jeans that are miserable to get on and off. The waist is fairly high in a way that shapes the back view beautifully. Grateful to find these flattering, comfortable jeans that are stylish and can be dressed up or casual. I bought one size smaller than normal, after having tried them on and purchasing my first pair at Macy’s in a size 4, which is comfy and great on me but not as flattering as the snugger size 2 here. I am 5’5″ and 129lbs (this week, ha!) The “Island” rinse dark color is so nice, with no fake wear-spots on the thighs and rear, and a crisp, neat look. I did try on the kind one shade lighter with a washed look, and they were actually quite nice too but I’d prefer to use up my own clothes rather than to buy them already worn-looking.
These jeans are great. I am 5-10″ and have a long inseam and normally wear a 22 or 24. I ordered a 24, and the inseam is a little high, but that is what is currently trendy, so it’s fine. I am also much larger in the hips and behind than in the waist, and they do not have a waist gap. They are stretchy so they do lose a little of their shape after a couple wears, but so far they seem to recover well with a wash and machine dry. The pockets are small, but they are attached to the fly, so they don’t pop out and make a weird flap at your hip. I just ordered a second pair so clearly I like them A LOT. If you have a big hip to waist ratio- these are a good bet!

I’m a big girl. So I ordered the largest size option (40 US) aka 20W L. I also ordered 3 other pairs because I was hoping to have 3 nice pairs of black jeans that I can pair with boots and mutliple cowl-neck sweaters for my easy, no-nonsense approach to fashion.
For the Levi’s Women’s Plus-Size 414 Classic Straight Jean:
I can get these on – but every bump and lump on my thighs – visible.
And while they rest in the appropriate place on my tummy – they are dangerously low in the back. As in – even hiking them up – with a belt cinched up like Ellie Mae Clampett – you will be risking showing ‘whale-tail’ or whatever the cool kids are calling it. I wear big loose tops when I’m wearing jeans – my attempt to hide the butt – so that’s not the issue – but I would never wear these because they are too thigh hugging / fabric too thin for said thigh hugging. The back is low enough to feel uncomfortable against the coccyx .
Full disclosure – I am pear shaped – closer to eggplant shaped. Lol. In my early teens – at my smallest – my waist was 24 inches and my hips were over 40 inches. And this was LONG before big butts were ‘fashionable’ – but I digress.
I struggle to find jeans that will fit my thighs and my waist. I’m posting this review because – in the past – I’ve posted reviews where I share struggles finding a specific item – and other Amazonians with a comparable struggle will post a comment – ahem – a helpful comment about an item they found that worked for them. I am looking for ‘old-school’ jeans – true denim – thick – with no stretchy fibers added – no shaping – no skinny legs or tapering – straight / boot cut. I cannot believe that I might have to go to bespoke / specialty company true, unadulterated denim.
I returned these jeans because in my opinion, they’re not jeans. They have those ‘faux’ pockets. You know the ones, you only get your finger tips in before you’ve hit the bottom of the pocket. Do these designers think that women don’t need pockets? Where are we suppose to put our stuff if we don’t want to carry a purse or clutch? Women like/want pockets too!
I ordered two pairs of this pants. One in black and one in dark blue. I only wear Levi’s and love them but have not tried this style before. It said they were long and they were far from that. One measured a 30 inseam and the other measured 32. 2 inches is a lot of difference from the same pants style. The long is 34 inches inseam so this product was missed marked and clearly inconsistent length

Ordered this model of colour Island Rinse. As ”pluss” I can mention really nice dark blue colour and good quality thick yeans material, quite stretchy. As well very good production quality.
But I have to return these jeans because of too large fit. Ordered size W26, as I already have good fitting Levis model No. 714 of this size (also straight fit and the same % of elastane). But these model is too big both in waist and in hips as well…
Also I would like to mention, that the jeans are more close to high rise than mid rise, but this also could depend of individual body shape, of course.
So, I advise to order one or even two sizes below, if You like fitting look.
