Rated 4 out of 5Â by BayCityChica Love these jeans!
I am 5' 5" 135# and bought a size 28. I wish I had gotten the 27 for a perfect fit but since its my first Free People purchase, I cant complain. They are SO LONG, I had to cut the whole bottom hem off, wear boots with heels and they were still dragging the ground... but I knew that too so again no complaint really ;) Lastly, as mentioned, these are high waisted which takes some getting used to! But... nothing I couldnt deal with. Overall, I LOVE these jeans and got tons of compliments. Ill definately be back for more Free People!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by joeyivy66 size down big time if your petite or slender
Great but I could have used a much smaller size as I am all legs and a small butte....bought size 28 but could have used a 26 or smaller and my normal size in other jeans is a 29
Rated 5 out of 5Â by EraEra I love these jeans!
I'm not sure why so many people don't like these jeans. I'm 5'9 size 26-27 and I think they fit great. Free People, please don't start making jeans shorter. I like a 35" inseam myself so I do have to pull these down a hair to get that length but other than that they're perfect.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by pistols Cute, but huge.
I love these jeans and get a lot of compliments on them, but they are humongous. Based on the measurements and other reviewers, I bought a size 27 and definitely should have gone with a 25. However, being that they have that casual hippie look to them, they work being baggy just as well (with a belt). That said, I do wish I would have exchanged them for the correct size, but I ripped the tag off in my excitement and am stuck with huge jeans.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by bcdesign Just need to work with these a little
I agree with what other reviewers said about the fit being weird, but they are workable for me. I might need to wear a belt to keep them from slipping down and I will probably where a longer shirt to cover the weird waist but the legs are the best part and they are ADORABLE! The thighs do fit slim but I think it makes my legs look skinny so I like that! If you are willing to work with them they are adorbs!

Fabulous looking flares!!! Really really wanted to love these-...my regular size, 25 fit tight on the thighs big in the waist and did not flatter me butt while 26 looked better but landed low on the hip and had a funky fit in the crotch area. hiking the 26 up did not help either, they are very high wasted and this was clearly grandpa fit. The FP crew said these jeans fit totally awkward on most people that tried them on, but i agree with other reviewers, if you want them, you gotta work on the look. Its probably better to stay with your regular size and wear them until the fabric around the thighs stretch out. Did not think they were too long, though I'm petite at 5"4' and the 26", even riding low on the hip barely brushed the carpet with 2,5" platforms
Rated 4 out of 5Â by MothFood Deal with it
I love these jeans, the fit requires getting use to. I was uncomfortable in my regular size 25, as the thigh is snug, so I ordered up & had a 26 shipped~ the problem is if you up size the waist is way to big so the jeans slide down & you get a long bunchy crotch area which is not at all comfortable. Get your regular size, deal with the tight thigh, it's meant to be tight to balance the extreme flare bottoms & they do stretch out as you wear them & break them in. They are insanely long, even with Campbell extreme platforms, unless you're pushing 6 foot plan to cut off bottom or take to seamstress to alter & re-attatch the hem. Finally they are high waist. So if you can deal with a tighter thigh, high waist & the extra expense of having the hem altered these are FANTASTIC statement jeans.

I tried these on at a local Free People store where they are on sale for $37.50. Even at that price I didn't want them. The thighs were so tiny and they were long enough that I could have cut off the entire bottom above where they are seamed and they still would have been long (I'm 5'7"). The rise is really high, so they kind of fit like they were made for a guy. I have a friend who is almost 6' tall and about 110 pounds... these would be awsome on her...or Barbie...For the rest of us...eh.
