5' 3" Size 32 waist. Took me a long, long time to find reasonably priced jeans that fit in the right places and is good quality. This is it. Material good - not flimsy, colour rich indigo. Only slight snag, which is why I put it under moderately small, is that it isn't as high in the waist as I would like and could be an inch longer. Maybe should have gone for long and turn up to my taste. Love it though.
I am very pleased with the fit and style of these jeans. Being only 5'2" and a little large in the butt and thighs, it's hard to find a good fitting pair of pants. I ordered the 10 short and the length was perfect. The high rise helped tuck in the belly even! Not too tight or snug and the little bit of spandex made them a little stretchy and move with ease. Not stiff at all.
I read reviews that stated these run small so I purchased a 10 rather than an 8. My main complaint is that the legs are cut very full, much more so than past Lee straight legs. THESE LOOK NOTHING LIKE THE MONROE JEANS ILLUSTRATED ON SITE!!! Be aware of that, please. Even my husband noticed. Fabric is quite thin but I expected that. I'm hopeful that they might shrink a bit when washed but doubt it because of high content of polyester. They seem a bit longer than 29" inseam (short). I will keep them because of price. But if you really want a great fit I suggest purchasing at a store with a fitting room.
Finding a jean that has the perfect inseam length as well as a great fit overall is close to impossible but this is it for me. The fit is snug but not tight, and the subtle stretch is comfortable and slimming. The waist is exactly where it should be for a flattering look whether sitting or standing. 10P is the perfect size now but I'm aspiring to get into an 8P. I may order this style in other colors or washes.
I liked the pants but when I ordered 10short, I really didn't think I would get pants 6 inches longer than my legs. Yes I do have problems when it comes to height but when I ordered "short", I did expect shorter pants.
In order for these jeans to fit me properly through out the day, I have to buy them in a size that is very difficult to button & zip when I first wear them (new or out of the dryer). After about an hour, they are a perfect fit. If I buy the size that fits just right when I try them on, by the end of the day they are kind of baggy. It took me a while to figure this out, but now I love these jeans.
