I have been on the hunt for the perfect red jeans for a long time, and I'm really happy I I found these. I'm 5'2", 31-26-33, 108lbs and I bought both the 24P and the 25P to try (I'm most often a 24, borderline 25 in premium denim brands). The 24P's fit snugly in the legs but were a little too tight in the waist (always my problem area, I had to struggle to get them buttoned), while the 25P's were comfy right out of the package. After much deliberation, I finally settled on the 25P's and returned the 24P's. Well, now I'm wishing I had done the opposite. After a full day's wear, the 25P's have stretched out to a "relaxed" fit, which is fine if that's what you're going for, but I'm not thrilled about it (I knocked a star off for the stretch factor). I'll make do with them, but I'm so wishing I had kept the 24P's, especially now that they're sold out. Hindsight is always 20/20.
Here are measurements for both sizes, unworn and unstretched (there's definitely some give to these measurements). 24P: waist 26-27" (waistband with dip and aligned), hip 31.5", rise 7.5", thigh 18.5", inseam 29", leg opening 5". 25P: waist 26.5-27.5", hip 32", rise 7.75", thigh 19", inseam 29", leg opening 5". After a day's wear, here is what the 25P's are now measuring: waist 28-29", hip 34.5", thigh 20".
If you're after a comfortably snug fit, my advice is to go with a size that feels tight at first. They will loosen up!

These jeans are FANTASTIC! I'm typically a size 10/12 and I bought these in a size 32. After wearing them for a day the waist did stretch out a little bit but continued to fit well everywhere else. I'd be a bit concerned that in the thigh area they'd be too tight if I sized down to the 31. The color of these is just as depicted. These will be great to wear with heels or flats. I'm going to try tucking them into boots once it gets cold enough but I think they might scrunch up a bit too much around the knees for my liking... overall I HIGHLY recommend these! They are so comfortable and very versatile!

I am pretty happy with these jeans! I tried similar styles at J. Crew, Loft and Gap, but these ones were my favorite. The color is perfect! The color in person is a deep primary red. Not too much brown, not too bright. The skinny leg is also perfect--they do not narrow too much like jeggings. My calves are 13" around for reference (I wear a lot of boots--only reason I know that number!) The rise is also just right--not too high and not too low. And the fabric is just right--not too much stretch but not too stiff :) I typically wear a size 28 and that's what I got. My only complaint is that the hips are a touch tight and pull a bit at the crotch on me. I think that it gets better as they a stretch a bit throughout the day. Also-maybe not terribly flattering to my butt because of that?
