I love these jeans. If you have the tummy issues (no waist) and are sick of wearing huge jeans to compensate these jeans are perfect!

Ah! I wanted to love these so much! I saw them and was like "Hot dang, I love that wash on those jeans! And yay bootcut!" However, I pulled them out of the Zappos box (which is like Christmas morning when it arrives) and unfortunately I knew. I just knew the bottoms weren't going to make the cut. The wash was awesome as I had seen, and they fit my derriere perfectly and right on through the thighs. This is all important cause sometimes plus sized jeans have the tendency to make you look like you're swimming through the sea of denim, so much material! However when I looked past my knees it was like bell bottom hell. Who at the Levi factory was in charge of labeling these as "boot-cut". Yer fired! These are bell bottoms. No doubt about it. If that's what you dig then groovy cause these should be right up your alley. But if you're looking for true boot-cut jeans these aren't the jeans you're looking for.

Finally jeans that fit my apple shape! If you a plus size female with a classic apple shape, you must buy these. The rise is shorter for those with little to no butt, which means they do not sag, like most plus sized jeans do, and they do not have excess material at the hip seam, for the classic apple. The cut fits beautifully, like a glove. They washed well, shrunk a little, but was hoping they would. I purchased the darker color (Oceania?) which looks great on and for casual day at work. The length and flare of the bootcut are perfect. This is my first pair of these jeans, it will not be my last.

Ok, I am a total apple shape. I have the hardest time with jeans. They are always too tight in the waist and then baggy in the rear and legs. These jeans are super cute with the flap pockets and I bought the dark color but they just don't fit me right. The stretch out in the stomach so I look even bigger around the middle. I must just have an odd shape. For me, the only jeans I can buy are from Lane Bryant but I love Levis so I thought I would try. All that being said they are very cute jeans. Just didn't fit my apple shape.

Well I have a 42 inch waist and 44 inch hips, and finally found my perfect fit in the 16W. These were the light jeans. The size chart did not help at all! Maybe this will give someone a starting point to get the right size the first time.

Okay, I have 3 pairs of these: the light blue, the dark wash with the worn-off parts (both of these styles have the non-traditional back pockets) and the mid-range blue wash with the traditional Levi's pocket. The mid-range with traditional pockets definitely seem a size smaller than the other two pair (but they'll be fine once I lose 5lbs or while wearing Spanx). The two pair with the flap thingy on the pockets are the best jeans ever! And the light-blue ones are THE MOST COMFORTABLE JEANS I'VE EVER HAD. Seriously - they are lightweight denim and are as comfy as flannel pajama pants. I come home from work and put them on INSTEAD of pajamas. If you are APPLE-SHAPED, these are the jeans for you. Other plus-size pants and jeans always fit me weird and too tight in the waist and way too loose in the butt and legs. But these are perfect. Thanks, Levis!

I have been on a years-long quest for the perfect jeans, and had nearly given up. As an apple-shape with very straight hips and a comically short rise, I was always facing the choice between too-tight waists or too-baggy-everywhere-elses, and I was forever hitching at my pants to combat crotch-wrinkle (affectionately known around my house as "polter-wang"). In fact, I was on the verge of just paying someone to make me custom jeans when I stumbled upon these and decided to give them a try (secretly believing I would just have to send them right back). I was delighted to find that these are as close to custom-fit as I've ever found in a pair of jeans. I was concerned that the "fuller-waist" might just mean they were cut smaller in the hips instead of cut larger in the waist and that I might have to go a size up to get a pair that fit, but I was wrong - they fit perfectly in the waist in my normal size. I bought the Oceana with the short inseam, and the legs are the perfect length on a 5'6" long-waisted gal (although the rise is still a bit too long for me, although not enough to be a problem). I just ordered the Blue Dusk and can't wait to get them. I am in love with these jeans!

They fit! my measurements are Waist=38, hips=48, I'm 5' 3" and I bought a 16W Short. my waist is not as full as I thought it was, because these are lose in the back. However, they are perfect in the front, no muffin top! So, I'll be keeping these. The length was perfect for me, just right. I'm going to buy a pair of the defined waist next to see how those fit.

Not thrilled, the boot cut opening is very wide and looks odd with flats. I may have them altered into cropped jeans to wear for the spring.

These are it! Very stylish. I have large waist and these were perfect. I wear 18, but the 18W got too large after wearing for about 1 hour. Could not return it as I had removed tags and washed it already. They stretch a lot after wearing and they were falling down on me. So I ordered the 16W and it was a bit tight at first, but then perfect after an hour. I only wear bootcut and flare jeans and it is hard to find nice ones that are large enough for my waist and not too long. These are it! And of course, I totally LOVE ZAPPOS

I love these jeans; they're the perfect cut for an apple shape. They're comfortable, they look great out and I didn't have the usual giant muffin top boiling over the waistband.

I'm 5'1.5" 245lbs...thick thighs, heavy back side and some stomach, smaller waist...African American woman. I bought a 22. They fit perfectly. Not too tight but not too loose. Due to my height I took them to seamstress and had them hemmed in an hour for the cost. Overall, excellent fit for heel or loafer. Catered for a Friday office look with button down shirt if you are looking for that.

Yes, I would buy these again, but drop down a size and go with regular length. I saw the inseam length, and at 5'5 I'm on the border of short and regular. With 33 inch inseam I went with the short. I was wrong, now I have cold ankles. Also these have enough stretch I suggest buying a size down. I wish the material was softer, but they were as expected at this price.

Bought the dark wash (Oceania/Pickstitch), short inseam -- the denim fabric is more old school (stiffer/bluer) than comparable jeans, with good drape. Definitely not bell-bottoms (trust me, I wore these back in the 70's!), but the boot cut does fall from the knees rather than a more tapered thigh and calf. Excellent length (~31" rather than stated 30") and mid-rise waist. Love the pockets -- the "flap" is faux (sewn to the pocket itself) so the back pockets are usable without unbuttoning. Good fit for straight hipped apple-shapes, and good value for quality of the jeans vs price. Needed to size up (16W vs my usual 14W) in this brand. If Jag Jeans work for you, these are a good comparable fit at a better price point.

I originally ordered my regular size (18W) but they were a little too snug in the waist area, I exchanged them for a 20W and they are a teensy bit big in the waist but easily can be managed with a belt. I love the wash. Also love Levi's for making these jeans as they are the first in awhile that weren't elastic waist. The flare does seem a bit more than boot cut but since I need to hem them, it looks like they will be great with boots.

This is my favorite pair of jeans ever. The only thing I don't like is that the flap pocket in the back is fake, but I can live with that. The fit is fantastic, even after a go in the dryer.

This jean is perfect except it runs very small. I normally wear a 22 or 24 and ordered a 24. I couldn't even button them! They are the perfect color and style but run way too small and unfortunately they don't go up to a size 26W.

These fit me much better then the "Levi's Women's Plus-Size Bold Curve ID Boot Leg Jean" I had been wearing for so long. I have gotten compliments on how well these jeans fit me. Only problem I have is I ordered them in a Short inseam, which I have always done for Levi's. But they drag on the ground. I need to break out the measuring tape, I have never had a short inseam from Levi's drag on the ground. I'm happy that the 590s fit looser than the Bold Curve Plus sizes. They feel perfect for me and I'm not as worried about them shrinking in the wash. I am a little concerned about the 590's stretching out but that can be solved by washing on warm instead of cold, or washing every 1-2 weeks instead of ever 2-3 weeks. Love them and wish I made the switch a long time ago!

I love these jeans. I am an apple shape and these are perfect for that shape. I also like how the pocket flap is actually sewn down on the pocket so no flaps sticking up. Thanks Levi's for making them! Free shipping service from Zappos.com is great too.

I had some trouble figuring out the correct size to order, since I am absolutely apple-shaped. My waist is the widest thing on me, and any plus-size women's pants are super tight in the waist and hang off my nonexistent butt and proportional thighs. I tried sizes 24, 22, and 20 in this style. I normally wear a 24 or 26 in pants, but I wear a 20 in these. They were tightish the first day or two and then stretched out to perfect. The waist fits and the butt and thighs are snug without being tight. I own two pairs and was thrilled to find something that works - first thing that really fits since LB discontinued Right Fit for the second time. I definitely would recommend to anyone apple-shaped.

Jeans are the worst thing to find in a good fit. I took a chance years ago and ordered these jeans and much to my surprise and delight they fit like a glove. These are the only jeans I wear. If you are heavier through your middle, these jeans are for you.

These jeans are amazing. I'm pretty much built like rectangle, very little waist indentation. They don't gap, the rise is good and the length fit me perfectly. The material is a nice heavy weight denim with a little stretch to it. They wash really well. They look great with my black boots & would look nice with heels. I ordered a 2nd pair 2 days after I wore the first one!
