I took a chance and measured myself to figure out my jean size. Pulled them on and they fit perfectly! Love the high rise -very flattering. Petite length hits the ankle on me (I'm 5'2"). Just the right amount of lycra. Takes a belt well. I think I'm done with pull on jeans. I forgot how great the old button and zipper jean looks. Will be buying more of Reitmans high rise jeans. Hoping the size is consistent across different styles! Lost one star for a bit of loss of waist strength & shape after wearing for the day....a belt helps.
