These jeans are great. I am 5'4 and a size 6 pre pregnancy. I got the small and they fit great, I like them to fit on the more legging/snug side, which I like. Could see a M working for me too depending on how you like the fit. They aren't too tight at all and fit nicely under the belly...very comfortable. I could easily see myself wearing these post pregnancy.
It’s a tight fit for sure and if anything you should size up. On me the waist band sits ok and I don’t have the dropped crotch as it’s a look I don’t like so I am glad it fits the way it does. Hoping post partum these to fit a bit more relaxed. They are elastic but the look is more on the skinny side. Fabric and feel are amazing, they indeed are of high quality material and they don’t feel as jeans but really soft which is why I am keeping these!
I am not sure how I feel about these. I love how they look, and the colour (I have the sunbleached blue) which I think is perfect for spring/summer. However the fit is strange on me. I am not a super fan of the dropped-crotch. I keep wanting to pull them up! I bought a size medium. Pre-pregnancy I would wear a size small/medium in non-numerical sized clothes. On me they are a rather tight in the legs, but fit well in the waist with room to grow but not too loose. I find it curious how another reviewer who normally wears one-to-two sizes larger size than me would recommend going down one-to-two sizes, and another says to size up. I guess just proves how different our bodies can all be! The fabric is nice and soft and cozy like sweatpants. I like how they look with a half-tuck.
I love these joggers, origanally ordered a large (usually L-XL for pants) and I ended up returning the large and ordering the other colours in medium! They look like jeans and feel very similar but have an insane amount of stretch to them!
I used the size chart and size small was recommended to me. They were too small. If they did fit, they would be comfortable but I would recommend sizing up if you decide to order!
