To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I used to by this same style and brand from a retail store that does not sale this brand anymore so I bought these Jeans here and it fits perfect. Only difference is the price, I used to buy it for $30 CAD and here is more expensive and has the shipping fee.
Literally the BEST jeans I have put on in years. I worry that Lee will discontinue or change this product. Lee Jeans, if by some whim of fate you are actually reading this please don't change this product! I am a cheapskate and I would pay double for these jeans if I had to. Shopko carries a lower quality version for Lee simply called "smoothers". Those are okay, but this "Indigo" line is much nicer.
Before I got these jeans, I would not have thought I would ever wear a pull-on jean.
OK, the review - Yes, these are pull-on jeans. No, they do not look like "mom jeans". No button to catch your tops or make your tummy look poochier than it is. These pants are perfection. No, I am not a paid reviewer and I did not receive a discount.
Fit: For reference, I am in my late 40's, 5'7", in the neighborhood of 143 lbs. I tend toward a smallish waist as compared to my bottom and thighs, but getting a bit fluffy around the middle with a little bit of a pooch. I bought a size 10A. These fit like a dream! They sit just below the natural waist. Therefore, smoothing away my pooch without causing muffin top. They fit smoothly over hips, bottom and thighs without the baggy gap that makes jeans look like mom jeans. But, no creeping up the crack or other unsightly close fit issues. Being someone who is tall-ish, but not tall I often have difficulty with pant length. Very often for me, Average is too short and Tall is way too long. These are perfect length. When I stand barefoot, they cover my entire heel just touching the floor. Also, these do not creep up or down. I'm not constantly pulling them up, nor tugging them down. That is practically unheard of for me.
Quality: Denim weight is just right, not too light or too heavy and stiff, fabric is soft. Overall construction is sound, pockets and seams lay nicely.
I do love the style of the jeans. Soft and very comfortable. I feel they run a bit small, so I ordered a 10, I usually wear an 8. The 10 fits good. The waist is right below my belly button. The slim fit can be worn with knee or ankle boots. Length is perfect, below my ankle, as shown in the picture. I am 5'2. I really love the jeans. Can also be worn with a belt, has belt loops. You really can't tell they are pull on jeans.
I'm still not sure that I'll keep these jeans. They fit nicely and look good but the rise is shorter than I expected and would like. They don't come up to your waist so don't smooth your tummy all the way up. They seem comfortable upon trying on but I keep wanting to pull the waist up higher. I do like the width of the legs as I am tired of skinny jeans and these are straight without being floppy or baggy. They fit comfortably snug through the thighs and have enough give to allow you to move freely. The color is nice (Indigo) and the fabric is soft and comfortable. The length is good as long as they don't shrink (but again, I may not keep them so might not wash them.) I do wish there was a long or tall length so I can cuff them but that rise issue might prevent me from ordering these again. If you stoop down or sit, you would probably expose some butt cleavage if you had a shorter top on. I am 5'6" and 155 lbs. with some extra belly business going on (but not really a muffin top on the sides) and ordered a Size 10 regular which fits well. If only the rise was long enough for the waistband to come up to just under my belly button, I'd be very pleased and would definitely keep them. The jury is still out...
