I broke the golden rule with these; purchased a relatively expensive item with international shipping that had not been reviewed. I couldn't wait any longer so I researched these jeans online and saw they were in floral. Most reviewers on other sites said they were TTS so I took the plunge. I nearly died when I opened the box-they were so small. My husband said they looked like they were bought for a 10 year old boy, which incidently I am physically nothing like. For reference I am tall and a size 4 bottoms, 27 in most jeans (AG Stevie are a 27). I like the higher waisted jeans as I have a long torso. I tried them on thinking there was no way they would get pulled up but low and behold they slid on like a soft glove. I still thought they looked too small and very skinny rather than straight but wore them all day and they have stretched. I would say that they are TTS but you probably won't get that straight, slightly relaxed look on the model first try if you get your usual size.
I think the grey is a bit lighter (mist?) in person than online so they are a very summery looking jean. I do think the colour is great if you want lighter jeans that aren't white (no way with 2 kids) or light blue (too 80's for me). They are soft and will be very versatile with all types of summer tops. I think they are flattering but the higher waist does suit me and I know some find it restrictive around the middle-again, they stretch!
Two gripes; First is the stated length. They are 29 inches not 30.5 as I think the description says. The over 30 inch length was a seller for me (tall) so this is a bit disappointing. I really don't like the combination of tight, high waisted and cropped but these seem to work as they aren't totally skinny and aren't too cropped with the top 2 inches below my belly button (long torso, though). The second gripe is that the dark zipper shows. I'm hoping that they will loosen up a little and sit flatter across my hips but am not sure this will help as the zip seems a little misaligned.
BTW they arrived rolled up at the hem which was not an issue - I unrolled them for more length. No mark where the fold was.
I am loving Citizens of Humanity but have had to go down 2 sizes for a skirt, up a size for the wide leg jeans and these seem TTS so there is a fair variation. If you are international with extraordinary return shipping costs, I would wait for more reviews from local gals just to make sure the size is likely to fit with the CoH size variations.
I personally also think Anthro should give a star rating for an accurate description.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by JCizzle great for thinner legs (aka not mine)
these are a great cut - I have the snakeprint Mandy's that they sold earlier this year. the problem I had with these: the wash. they aren't as well done as they could be - the whiskering isn't flattering for curvier figures. the snakeprint pair I have are darker and infinitely more slimming. the other problem I had was the SMELL. seems a lot of 'grey' washes have this odd plastic smell to them. they even smelled this way in the store (albeit fainter as they had aired out). unfortunately I ended up returning...I don't need to pay to look bigger and smell bad. i'm 5'4" and 115, size 26.

I love these jeans so much it's hard to put something else on. Seriously, the fit is great, the fabric very comfortable.
