Beware of sizing. Sizing info is not sufficient for getting correct size. I also went by the reviews and figured that if a 135 lb person wore a 28, I at 115 lbs, size 4 , could wear a 26. Not even close! Way too small and I must return them.

This is my third pair of Carhards (others of different styles) and am now a devotee of this (misunderstood?) brand. I've always thought of it as a trade brand, i.e. utilitarian and indestructible but little concern for fashion. Boy, do I feel stupid now. I'm 5'10", high waist/short torso, 34L about 135-140lbs. I discovered that I fit the size 6 in the other styles and ordered 28/36L and 27/34L since that's all that was available. Perfectly fitted 28 look like they were made for me and just a little long and 27 were barely buttoned snug (but will keep in case of some crazy weight loss). I paired my now new skinny jeans with the Carhardt removable buckle belt in S and it fit perfectly on the last hole and already got a ton of complements on the combo. (Wore to work on a casual Friday and paired with Sierra Trading Co's Twisted X Top Hand cowboy boots and a suede blazer. Very Ralph Lauren looking. This is not a great fit for someone who has bigger or more muscular thighs compared to the waist size (which is really more like hip size in these), does not like jeans which sit right on the hip (but if light muffin top? no problem!), likes more than 2% stretch or is super curvy. They feel fitted without choking off circulation when sitting, denim is beautifully smooth and are designed better than most designer/couture brands which cost 2-4 times. Well worth ordering a longer pair and shortening, particularly at the price. Just ordered another pair. Thank you STC!

Low rise that finally doesn't gap at the back. Definitely for "slim" people and little to no stretch in the fabric. Bought for teen daughter and these are her new favorite jeans. Eventhough had to get 32 length, which we were afraid would be too long, it's not a problem since legs are tight and don't drag.

Finally, Carhartts for women that are truly stylish. I love the brand, but always felt like I was wearing my boyfriend's jeans (even though they fit a woman). The dark color is beautiful, and the topstitching is a pale neutral -- but not bright yellow. The fit is very slim, but forgiving in the hips and thighs. As a curvy woman, I struggle to find fitted jeans that fit *everywhere*. As other reviewers have stated, these jeans are cut low. They would work well with tunics and longer sweaters on me. I like having jeans with different waistlines in my wardrobe. I am buying a second pair!

These are very well-made,quality jeans. I loved the pockets on the back, and thought they were very slenderizing. They do sit very low on the hips, and I found that this was not comfortable for me. I did return them, but would recommend them for younger people who like low-rise jeans.

I had bought some other Carhartt modern fit straight leg jeans, and thought the skinny version may work just as well. But the waist and hips were too big and the legs too tight for my body, a smaller size up top wouldn't have fit my legs. I am an athletic build, not very curvy and probably have thighs that are bigger. So this cut didn't fit or flatter.
