I agree with previous reviews. These pants are fabulous. The style is fresh and new, the fit is comfortable and soft, and, as jeans tend to do, they go with everything. They also add style to what might be a casual outfit due to their design. The high waist makes them just a little bit dressier as well. I got the darker wash version and find the wash very "I've had these dark jeans for years," rather than looking like they came that way. Natural, comfortable, stylish.
My only "complaint" is the length. Though I am only 5'5", I normally can wear regular length jeans, only occasionally getting pairs I wear with heels or wedges hemmed for length. With these, I HAD to go with petite and there is still quite a bit of fabric bunching at the bottom. To wear with 3-4 inch heels/wedges, I still need to do about a 1 inch hem to keep them from dragging. This is not at all a deal breaker, but they run LONG.
Overall, a great stretchy, fun and chic style and fabulous fit! Love these.

Love these jeans!
I have a long torso, so high-rise jeans aren't always THAT high-rise on me. These, however, were perfect. Very flattering cut. There is just the right amount of stretch so that they are neither too stiff nor too "jegging-like". The wash looks exactly like the picture online. They are quite long so they will definitely need to be worn with wedges/heels. I feel like this is the aesthetic they were designed for, though, so I do not see this as a con. As the 70's inspiration enters this spring/summer, these will be right on-trend, but will also remain a staple in my closet long after the "trend" has ended for all the reasons above.

These will make your legs looks GREAT
I tried these at my sister's recommendation. She's actually in LOVE with this style. I wasn't disappointed. They make my legs look like they go on for miles. Also, can I say I am so happy that there is a style other than skinny jeans coming around? They're a bit stretchy with makes them very comfy. Hopefully, they don't stretch out too much with wear.
My only complaint is the length. I'll probably need to have them altered if they don't shrink up a bit in the dryer. I 5'8" and even with a four inch heel they still bunch up at the bottom due to the long length. Great for really tall girls though!
I can't usually fit in designer jeans, even the largest size 32, being a size 14 curvy girl. Boyfriend jeans are usually not good at all on me because they are still tight in the waist/hip area (when they shouldn't be), but loose in the leg, which isn't flattering. These are the first designer boyfriend jeans I have ever tried on that I like on my curvy borderline plus-sized figure. They aren't too tight in the waist, they don't give me muffin-top, and the legs are slender and more fitted, and actually flattering! I am 5'6" tall, for reference. I tried them in a 32 without much hope but was pleasantly surprised! At last, a pair of boyfriend jeans I can actually wear and not look ridiculous or gigantic. I tried them with simple soft flat shoes, rolled them into one big cuff (instead of the little rolled cuff as shown in the photos online here), and wore a messy-tucked top and a long cardigan. Really nice slouchy spring look! Very happy! If you're a curvy girl, give these a try! I would also say these would work on shorter gals because the leg is more fitted than most boyfriends. Since they fit me, I would say that perhaps they run a little large...? I always thought the term "skinny boyfriend jean" was ridiculous, but now I understand!

Perfect for Athletic Build
I tried these jeans on because I am a HUGE fan of Paige Denim. I tried in my usual size of 28 but they were way too big around the waist, so I went down a size to 27. (I am 5-6, usually wear a size 4 or 6) My legs are very muscular and it is pretty hard for me to find jeans, as they are usually too tight around the thighs and too big around the waist.
These fit so well- though they are more snug on my legs than intended (not true "boyfriend" fit) they are in between a skinny and boyfriend jean for me.
I would highly recommend for anyone with an athletic build!

Flaunts your assets!
Very soft and has a nice slim fit with some bagginess in the legs. The back pockets are perfectly placed to make your derrière look like a juicy pear!
I purchased these jeans today in my local store. Although I have never owned a pair of the Lily crops, I have owned several pairs of level 99s in the same stretch fabric. The fit is a great stretch skinny. Super flattering and trendy and the length make them a great choice to pair with ankle boots. I recommend trying them on in the store or ordering a size down. I say this because once you actually get the pair, they will be snug, but Level 99s made in this fabric stretch out an entire size over time. I have 27s from a few years ago that I am sure would measure 28 or 29 now. The sales girl also suggested that you size down and she said wear them 4-5 times before washing if possible. The other helpful info she offered up, was that the black ones are not made of the same super stretchy material, so they are more true to size.
Overall, love my new pair of jeans and I think they will look great with boots now and flip flops later. You can definitely dress these up or down!

These work perfectly for my more hourglass figure. I stuck to my usual size 28, and I'm very happy with the fit. The tag says they are "contoured" meaning they really go in at the waist. Whenever jeans fit in the waist, they are often too small in the thighs. And when they fit in the thigh area, they are way too big in the waist. Not so with these! I'm smitten! The only reason I didn't give them five stars for quality is because I find them to be the teensiest bit scratchy on the inside. Otherwise, they are perfection. I love the little flare at the bottom. That really balances the silhouette in my opinion.
I love these jeans but unlike the previous reviewer I did not find them true to size. I am ALWAYS a 26 in Pilcro- I have several pairs of different styles and washes, and I could barely pull these over my thighs in the 26. I sized up to a 27 and they fit like a glove, but still more snug than I would have expected. Luckily the Pilcro jeans always relax to your shape after the first wear, but be careful on sizing! Btw, I am 5'7" and 130lbs. Other than that the color is gorgeous in person- dark with some nice grayish fading. They look more expensive than they are because of the wash I think.

new favorite in my closet!
I am really enjoying these jeans! The fit is just right and the denim is very soft. The dark wash is very nice. I am 5'8 and usually a size 10/12. The rise is high which is wonderful for me as I carry extra weight in the stomach area. I recommend this style of Pilcro jeans. I have a different pair of Pilcro that do not fit as well as these. Go ahead and buy them already!!!

Perfect Fitting Jeans
Just bought these today and I LOVE the fit. They're high waisted, yet don't bind at the waist, fits the legs snuggly (I've got skinny legs so hard to find jeans that don't bag there) and super comfortable. I wish they made these in white. Pilcro brand has high quality as the other name brand jeans, yet less in price. Winner!
These jeans are adorable. I saw them while shopping and couldn't resist trying them on. Once in the dressing room they did not disappoint. With Ankle jeans I can usually do a regular or a petite size since I have really long legs for only being 5'0", but went with the 24P in this this case. I like the shorter inseam on the printed version and thought they looked extremely cute with the gladiator sandals that I happened to have on that day. The print is subtle enough that these match quite a few items in my closet, but different enough that they are not just a regular pair of jeans. I also love the classic cut so I can wear them on casual Friday to my corporate job. As with all AG jeans, the fabric is super soft and the fit is great.

When I saw these online I was dying to try them on. In person they did not disappoint. They are just different enough without making it so you could only wear them with a limited amount of things. Blew my birthday budget because I had to have them.
I usually float between a 26P and a 27P. Opted for the 27 just for comfort. I could have squeezed into the 26 but I don't think they would have hung right. I am 5'1" and 115 lbs. They do stretch out a bit during the day. Haven't washed them yet so don't know how they will hold up after that. But I love these jeans!!!!

These pants are just too cute! The fit is great and they are super comfortable. The little dots all over give them a fun and subtle twist. I'm 5'0 and these are more like regular length pants on me....which I like! I'm 105 and the 26 fit perfect.
Amazing pants, stretch and a bit of distressing. I like my pants to fit tight, I don't love the baggy look so I ordered down a size and they are perfect. I wear a size 27 in AG jeans but I ordered a 26 and I couldn't be happier.

I splurged on these and I'm glad I did. These jeans are comfortable, stretchy enough for comfort but not overly elastic to show all the flaws of your bottom. The rise is high enough to flatten the stomach with comfort. I usually size 27 for Hei Hei pants but bought the 28 Pilcro. I'm 120# 5'5, curvy at bottom. Really cute stripes, great comfort, perfect length. Love it.

The cutest jeans!
The online photos don't do these jeans justice. They are a blue-and-white vertical stripe, with the typical soft Pilcro stretchy fabric, and super flattering. These are mid-rise and nice and snug, good elasticity. I wear a 26 in most jeans sizes and wear a 26 here too. The inseam was perfect on me, and I'm 5'4". Wish they had more colors!
First off, it is extremely hard for me to find jeans that fit me without requiring some tailoring, so I was skeptical about trying these. But I have been looking for this style of jean for about a year now, and haven't found anything that fit right & was the right length, They are normally out of my price range, but I had a 15% b-day coupon so I decided I'd try them on.
They fit perfectly the second I put them on! They are extremely soft, and really comfortable! There is a little bit of stretch to them so they keep their shape all day, and length is exactly what I wanted. I have short legs considering my height, and these come to about 1 inch above my ankle like they do on the model in the picture which was surprising (usually ankle jeans touch the floor on me). I ended up getting them, and I have been wearing them every second I get! I highly recommend them!
Usually, I wear a size 26 or 27, and I went with the 27. I like my jeans slightly roomy, instead of tighter. But these really do run true-to-size, so whatever size you are they will fit perfectly and you can tell they are great quality jeans so it's well worth the money!
*Note-If you are slender and flat-butted like I am, these jeans will make you look like you have a great backside which is an added bonus!

I hate shopping for jeans! It's hard to find jeans that fit- for the opposite reason of the review before me- I have a smaller waist in proportion to my legs and bum. These jeans fit so well! No gaping space in the waist, and super flattering in the butt! I'm 5'3'' and they are appropriately cropped. They are soft and comfy, but still have that 'sturdy' jean feel. I also like the rise- just below my belly button so my butt isn't hanging out when I sit, but not so high that my tight shirts don't sit well over my stomach. I can't speak to how much they stretch out, but I'm hoping they keep their shape well like my other C of H jeans do. Perfect for summer!

Best jeans ever!
These are my favorite pair of jeans! I have never paid this much for a pair of jeans but they are worth every penny! They are so soft and comfortable and the material is not too heavy. Great for spring/summer.
