I have had these for 2 weeks now. I cannot find the words to express how much I love them. They are so comfy, and are incredibly flattering. I am 5'6 and weigh 160 (ugh...still working on getting rid of baby belly). Anyway, I went to NYDJ website, and they suggest you order 1 size smaller, so I did that and got a 10 instead of a 12. They fit like they were made for me. I love the overdye tonal dark wash, looks really classy. Yes, the length is a bit long. I bought some style snaps because I don't want a permanent hem, so I can use those to raise or lower if I am wearing heels or flats. I am looking through my closet at all of my other jeans, and thinking if I sell them, and some other stuff I don't need I can afford to buy another pair. I would get the exact same ones. I have washed them and dried 2 times, inside out cold water and delicate low heat in the dryer. No visible fading yet, did not shrink in the dryer. I have never spent this much money on a pair of jeans in my life, worth every penny. Ordered mid day EDT, received the next business day. After wearing all day for a few days they did not sag or stretch out to much or bag anywhere. I am officially in love with these jeans, and as always incredibly pleased with Zappos!

I love NYDJ but this cut and style did not do it for me. They say they are high rise, I would describe them as low rise. The are at least 2-3 inches below my natural waist and that does nothing to flatter the body of a more mature woman who has had a couple of kids (ladies, you know what I mean).

Heard about this brand from an employee at a Jeans store in the mall. Decided to give them a try. Visited some local stores to try on different styles to get an idea of size/fit. There is variations in size/fit of the various styles of NYDJ. Found a style/fit wife liked and ordered from Zappos. Wife absolutely loves them. Not the last pair she'll buy I'm sure.

I've been wanting to try a pair of NYDJ's for quite a while but have been hesitant because they're kind of pricey for my budget. I finally broke down and ordered these, and they're well worth the higher price. I really appreciate the uniform dark wash with no whiskering or streaks. I can dress them up with a cute top and a pair of heels or boots for an evening out or I can wear them to work (a very casual office) with a simple top and a pair of flats. I love the fit of the Marilyn Straight Leg; they are sleeker than a boot cut, but they aren't "skinny jeans" which always look awful on me because my lower legs are quite skinny but my hips/butt/belly are a bit bigger. (I look like an ice cream cone in skinny jeans!) These also have a slightly higher waist, which helps create a more hourglass shape, and controls my belly without creating muffin-top. I got so many compliments when I wore them to work yesterday! My only concern is that I wish they were maybe 1/2" longer. They fit me LIKE A GLOVE when they arrived...but I'm worried that if I put them in the dryer, they might shrink a little (in length). I'm 5'8" and I usually wear a 32" or 33" inseam--these seem to be EXACTLY 32", without any length to spare. However, this is a common problem for me; I usually have to buy long/tall jeans and have them tailored to fit. With these, I'm just going to make sure I always wash them in cold and hang them to dry. Oh, and it really IS true that you should order a size down with NYDJ. I'm almost always a 12, sometimes even a 14 (I'm 31"x32"), but I took a leap of faith and ordered a size 10, and like I said, they fit like a GLOVE. Bottom line, highly recommended, and I will definitely order another pair or two when I can afford it.

Marilyn Straightleg Prem. Tonal jeans are great. Very dark denim, which was what I wanted. Fit is nice and stretchy, tho about a half size snugger than other NYDJ Marilyn's that I have. Who knows? They shrunk about an inch in length in the first wash and dry, which is good for me -- I prefer 32" length and now they are closer to that. Excellent jeans, like all NYDJ. Only brand I buy.

Brands I'd also recommend: I only buy NYDJ

I ordered these in my usual size even though several reviewers stated to order a size down. I am happy with the ones I received as they fit very well in the waist/hip/leg area without looking like skin tight skinny jeans. They are extremely comfortable; however, at 5'4" I did have to have them hemmed several inches as they seemed longer than the 32" they were supposed to be. I think they are a little overpriced for what you get, plus I had to pay an additional $15.00 to get them hemmed, but they are very comfortable.

Brands I'd also recommend: MiracleBody and Cookie Johnson

These are, without a doubt, the best jeans I have ever owned. They are comfortable, stylish and make you look about 10 pounds thinner. Every time I wear them I get compliments and am asked if I have lost weight. I got my first pair a couple years ago and while I hesitated over the price, I'm glad I bought them. I have bootcut and straight leg styles. NYDJ, I'm your biggest fan!

Nice jeans, very flattering. Holy cow, this is more than vanity sizing, it's more like delusional sizing. I bought one size down from my normal size, but could have gone done two sizes with no problem. So, plan accordingly!

Love these NYDJ jeans! I wear them all the time. Thanks to Zappos free returns policy, I tried different styles & sizes. The boot-cut style in the same size wasn't curvy enough for me. So if you're curvy, I recommend the straight leg. Love the "Tonal in Blue/Black." Again, I love these jeans.

Simply perfect! Have been looking for such a long time for THE Jeans. The "bootcut" in other jeans are really more of a bellbottom. These jeans have a slight flare (not dorky!) at bottom and tonal color is great for dressy times with a jackets and heels or casual. 32" inseam was great!

I was introduced to NYDJ about a year ago. They have been around for some time, I didn't like the price when other denim has been just fine, but I love this brand once I tried it. Great fit, comfort, many styles...I now have about 15 pair including a Ponte knit. They are very comfortable and they are quality!

Love, love, love these jeans. They fit like a glove and are perfect. I like jeans that come a little higher on the waist. Otherwise, I'm always pulling them up. Best jean purchase I've made in a while. Great material that gives, excellent tailoring, perfect fit and the best thing is they are MADE IN AMERICA! You won't regret this purchase.

I absolutely love these jeans! They are sexy and flattering, while managing to be as comfortable as yoga pants. I saw reviews saying get a size smaller and am glad I did. I'm 5'7" and 135 lbs. and the size 4 fits me perfectly. I'm not normally one to splurge on jeans, but this was worth it. I'm ordering at least two more pairs.

Love these jeans. I was on the bubble when I ordered because I am just getting to where I need the higher waist jeans (for obvious reasons). They are very comfortable and the back pockets are not so high up that they look "high" waisted. I just turned 50 and it is hard to find that age clothing that mend with today's styles. Try them, you won't be disappointed.

These are my first pair of NYDJ and will not be my last. They are the most comfortable jeans I've ever worn. I am 5 ft 7 in, 155 lb, and very much a pear with a narrow waist and wide hips/thighs. Based on other comments here I went down a size (8 instead of 10) and it was the right choice. Length was good, comfy through my widest parts, no gaping at the waist or sliding down my hips, and so so flattering. Worth the extra cost.

Love these jeans! Fit, style, comfort, and the feel of this denim is fantastic. The blue/black stripe is very subtle on the front side seam and on the waist, but very flattering and gives you an even more slimming look. I get compliments every time I wear these.

These jeans were great, a staple for me. I have several pairs of NYD jeans and these fit the same as the others with the higher waist that tucks you in and hides any love handle. For me, they are the perfect length for flats, I am 5'7. As with almost all the NYDJ, I am about 2 sizes smaller than any other brand of pant. I am normally a 10 and I am always a size 6 in NYDJ. You want to go tighter at first because they do stretch just a bit.

These are the most amazing jeans. I don't think I will ever buy another brand again. I've always hated to wear jeans before because they felt too uncomfortable and never fitted right. I'm currently loosing the baby weight after my 3rd baby and these made me feel human again. They are slimming but not too tight - and stylish too! I got a size 4 in the Nightfall (loved this color!) I'm 5ft 6 and currently 143lbs. I would recommend buying a size down in this style.

Love these jeans. They were long so I did have to have them hemmed but the fit is great! While more than I want to pay for a pair of jeans, it was worth the price.

I bought these after a friend recommended the brand name. I'm a slim 48 year old but I have big calves and am desperately searching for a pair of straight leg jeans that don't fit like sausage casing. These jeans are great for that, but there's something off about how they're cut around the waist and hips. They're cut just a little too high and I think that's making them look kind of frumpy. Also, even though I did not put them in the dryer, they shrunk in the length after a few washes and now they're a tad too short. The quest continues.

For the price? I was not all that happy. They are well-made, but...bought a pair of Levi's (higher-waisted, stretch) at Goodwill for $9.00 and I look slimmer in those, than these. Too bad! I'll keep these, but, not all that happy.
