Rated 5 out of 5Â by eclecticgypsy Obsessed!!! (but could be tricky for some...)
I have these jeans in the Cobain and they are my fav pair of jeans. I actually love them so much I own the same pair in two sizes, my true size and one size up. For reference I am petite but curvy, a size 28 and 125lbs. I wanted to review these so I could help others with the sizing cause they are a tricky fit. Since I have a more athletic thigh, I sized up to a 29 with my first pair because I was worried about my thigh bulging through the holes. I was very pleased when I tried them on, and loved the way they fit in the thigh. I did notice they were a bit big in the back of the legs and in the waist. Still I was crazy about them. I am in the process of trying to shed some weight I gained from pregnancy and decided I would be devastated if I lost too much weight and they no longer fit. So I bought a pair in size 28, my regular size. They fit as well. A bit tighter in the thigh but not to the point where my leg were bulging badly. On a thin day, these fit better. Back of the leg fits and the waist is a lot closer to what I am used to with denim. The fit is odd in the sense that they could be too small, true to size, or too big depending on your frame/build. If you are a skinny slender, thin thighs/waist/hips, you are likely safe to size down. If you are average build with slender thigh stick with you true size. If you are curvy in the butt/thigh regions or fall between sizes, go up one size but note the waist will be large and require a belt. Someone small in the waist and large of thigh may be uncomfortable with the fit. These have no stretch but are 100% cotton and will give a bit while wearing. Due to the destroyed fabric, I hand wash cold and lay flat to dry. If you are going to throw these in the washing machine, wash in cold in a laundry bag to avoid tearing larger holes:) I can't wait to buy these in the London. I have read that since the Cobain's the thigh has relaxed a bit, and will be buying these in my true size. Hope this can be helpful to someone because I fretted and struggled while deciding to purchase!

i love these jeans and finally decided to spend my money on them. Although they are accurately depicted in the pictures, they didn't look normal on me because my thighs were bulging out of the holes (I feared this would happen). I ordered a size 28 like I normally would; the waist is actually a little too big and my butt alllmooosttt looks good in them. Overall, since the jeans are not stretchy, I would recommend sizing up to women with fuller thighs and settling for a belt if the waist ends up being too big. Oh, and I'm 5"5, athletic and 135 pounds on a skinnier day :)

I pulled them out and held them up to me and thought they looked big. Once I tried them on, I was CONVINCED they shipped me the wrong size because there was NO way this was the right size! I ordered a 24 and by the gaping hole in the front, I swear they sent me a 28. But after checking every single tag, sure enough it was a 24. I would reccommend going 2-3 sizes down.

Im sooooooooooo glad they came out with the diff colors of these....im a HUGE ONE teaspoon fan, esp their jeans. so when i saw these....originally, the wash- check, the distressing-check, the short inseam- check....everything seemed too good to b true.....of course it was! when fp had the one teaspoon iggy jeans, i bought both colors, and they fit PERFECTLY!!.....i heard these may run a bit big, as i did my research.....
Now, MY STYLE, in and of itself, consists of distressed EVERYTHING, tees, jeans, tanks, etc.....
i was soooooooooooooo disappointed when i got these! cuz i was looking sooooo forward to getting them and wearing them! they have not even seen the light of day! they were (now mind u, all cotton, so i ordered 25, not usual 24).....the fit was unexplainable for this price point......i shouldnt even have to explain it at this price point!
All in all.....im glad that others have expressed similar concerns..,..and if any more iggys come back....im snatching them.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by pig_something Pretty. Button is super annoying.
Okay. The jeans are not stretchy, you've been warned. I am 5'6", 115, and I ordered a size 26. The waist is a bit loose, but the thighs and legs fit perfectly. Great quality. But what in the WORLD is going on with the closure button? Also, there are zippers at the bottom of the jean, which may not bother some, but I did not realize/see this in the photographs. I had to unzip the zippers a bit to get my feet through lol. So, the button to "button" the jeans = way difficult, and the zippers at the bottom = unnecessary. I love the jeans, though. I love the Melrose color. Seem to fit true to size, but One Teaspoon can be kinda weird with sizing.
