I measured according to the guide and ended up with a perfect fit. I'm thrilled to finally have pants with no waist gap. They look great and also feel great.
Amazing jeans and amazing customer service. Will definitely be ordering again.
I'm so pleased with these jeans. I've sworn by DL1961 jeans for a while; but postpartum, my waist to hip/booty ratio became less friendly to standard-cut pants. I decided to give these a shot and was delighted the second I pulled them on. The material is soft and stretchy but still feels very high quality and durable. No stiff "new denim" feel that you need to work out with a few deep squats. They fit perfectly without feeling like I'm squishing my quads in and with zero waist gap. I am confident they will stand up to the wear and tear from chasing after a toddler, too!
These jeans fit so well from the first time I tried them on to now (several washes later). There are no gaps at the waist and they fit perfectly over my muscular lower body.
