Very happy with these jeans and they are stretchy and so comfortable! I would say chose your smaller size with these because they loosen up! Love the wash of these! The only thing I do differently with these jeans is I don't dry them because I don't want the initial tight waist! I'm 5'2 126lbs with a 27-28in waist and got the 3's. The 5's were too loose. Also!! Don't sleep on the regular length. Even though I'm a petite height, I got the regular and I'm super happy I did! I love the look of a slight cuff better than I would the raw edge on me with the shorter length. Even if you do want the shorter length, I feel you could easily cut them with the already raw edge! GET EM!!!!
This was such an amazing review, Christina! Thank you for giving so much detail and insight for other women to refer to in order to get the best fit. That was such a helpful tip for the petite gals! :)
These are great jeans! I get compliments from strangers. I do think they run a.little big. I'm a normal 29/typically 9 in jeans. These fit great and are stretchy but by the end of the day they slouch. I should have got a 7. Love to wear this with CJ basics, or even a Rocker band tee for more of a 90s vibe.
Thank you so much for taking the extra time to leave a review, Tyler! It's a great tip for others to know they may run a bit big and may prefer sizing down. These are so easy to dress up or down in many different ways! :)
So I normally hate how I look in skinny jeans. I'm curvy and not skinny so skinny jeans normally make me feel extra not skinny; however, I've gotten several compliments on these jeans. They fit true to size. They are the perfect high waisted height so my mom stomach doesn't show, but super stylish and don't look like the jeans my mother wore. These are also so comfortable, I even went for a short run in them.
We're so happy to hear the Monroe were a perfect addition to your capsule wardrobe, Kim! :) So glad that you're getting compliments on them, you should! Definitely take a look at the Millers too!
I was not sure at all what size to get on these because I’ve never ordered CJLA jeans before, but I DMed them and got some help with it, and they fit great. Just stretchy enough to be comfortable, but not so much that they’ll fall down. I like the wash- just a little different but will still go with everything. They make my butt look great, and I like the rise as well. I am 5’8” 170lbs, usually a size 6-8 in jeans. I am an athletic build. I went with size 7 on these, and they’re perfect.
This is amazing, Alyssa! The Monroe are so crazy comfortable and add a fun new flair on your typical blue skinny jeans. We're so glad to hear the dm team were so helpful in finding the right sizing! :)
I love absolutely everything about the Monroes! I got a 5, which is my normal size. I’m 5’4 (118 lbs) but have longer legs than a petite. They make me so happy every time I put them on! They have enough stretch to be comfy and hold their shape like the older Baileys. (The Baileys, of course, are a darker wash and not cropped.) I do think, if they restock the “talls” I’d probably order a pair of those, just to have a little longer pair.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this sweet review, Barbara! It sounds like the Monroe's are exactly what you were hoping to get! :) You'd also like the Miller jeans since you're loving these.
