Rated 4 out of 5 by Robbybird Everything is great, but the backside is ok
I bought these jeans in this color, but destroyed. I am 5'6.5 and the hem hits slightly above my foot. I like that length. The material is great, thick and sketchy. I literally wore then over 20 times before washing them. They bounce back so easily. I never had a pair of jeans do that. And, they are super comfy, like wearing leggings (but not). I wear them with clogs, flip flops and inside boots. They would be the perfect jeans, except for one thing. They don't do much for ones backside. I have a pretty ample backside that I appreciate and looks great in Joe's booty jeans and awesome in James Jeans. I think it is the placement of the pockets on the Stet's that don't do much for the backside. But, I love them anyway and wear them more than any other jean I have right now. For reference, I have an athletic build, with very muscular legs and backside. I have the 28, which is my normal size (except for James jeans where I am a 27). They are more form fitting than what you see on the model.
I am planning on getting another pair of the Stets....hopefully in White.

Rated 5 out of 5 by charmcitygal Light jeans + curves = flattering? Believe it!
I love love love these jeans! Between the soft, thicker denim and the really great cut, they manage to be flattering even on a girl with fuller curves like I have. Dark denim is usually my friend, but these are a happy exception. And I wanted some light denim for spring/summer, darn it! I really like that the rise is a little higher than usual, falling just about an inch below my belly button, so I can avoid the dreaded muffin top. They stretch just enough to hug the body but don't lose their shape, even if they're not washed after every wear. Rolled or unrolled, they're perfect. And hubby said my butt looks amazing. That's all the reason I needed to keep these jeans!

Rated 4 out of 5 by pjaalt great quality, but...
I liked these jeans. Great material, very comfortable, and unlike the previous reviewer, they made my flat booty look fabulous. They also hit at the perfect spot on my hips - not so low that I get a muffin top, but not so high that they're mom jeans. However, they made my legs look thick and stumpy. I'm very petite but have thick, muscular legs, especially my thighs. These highlighted how thick my thighs are, then were baggy around the knee which made the lower leg portion bunch up in a strange way. It wasn't too bad if I rolled the hems up, but for this kind of money I need my jeans to be more versatile. Too bad I don't have nice, straight legs like the model. I guess I'll stick to my Silver and Big Star jeans. 5'2", 106 pounds, 32A-26-33, tried on the 25.
