Don't expect these jeans to hold their shape or support your body in a flattering way. These jeans were made for skinny girls with thigh gap. I've had a couple pairs and each pair pulls at the thighs immediately. The material is soft but grows and stretches upon wash and wear. Very disappointed that these are now the only black skinny jeans reitmans is carrying. I wouldn't call them jeans because the denim material is not existent in the construction of these pants. If your larger than a size 8 save your money and invest in quality.
