I love these jeans, I'm 5 feet tall and a size 18 with an hourglass figure - obviously, it's pretty hard to find a jean to fit me, and the 512 straight leg is perfect. It has nice rise length, I hate low rise jeans, and it doesn't even gap at the waist when I sit). I've bought it in every color it's available in and love them all. This is a very nice dark wash, I just wish it did not have the fake white creases on the upper thighs, but a longer shirt fixes that!

So disappointed in fabric! So cheap/tacky. Yuck! The old Levi's I got many many years ago were made of good quality material. I will not buy another pair of Levi's again. Sticking to my Bill Blass, Lee, Eddie's, L.L. Bean and a few other brands I have had great success with. The decorative stitching on back pocket was horrible, cheap, and ugly beyond belief. I didn't like one single thing about the 16W jeans! Still losing wt., and can't wait to get my 100% cotton size ladies 16 back! Then it will be PTL!

I love these pants, they fit perfectly, being a bigger girl it's hard to get jeans that fit nice in the hips and butt as well as the waist. They have a little stretch but even with the stretch they keep their shape all day long!

I love these jeans. I wanted a nice pair of black jeans and these fit the bill. They fit well, but may run small for some. I ordered an 18W because a blue denim came in that size and was a little loose. The 18W was a little too snug so I ordered the 20W. More room and not as tight, but I do wear a belt. Nice material and comfortable.

As flattering as could be expected at 5'5" and 240 lbs. Tight at size 20, but I'm keeping them. Docking a star for the thin fabric.

Yum! These are awesome. After ordering the style with the pocket flap that is kind of annoying, I was so glad to see my size come in this. These are way flattering and figure hugging while not being obnoxiously tight or tapered/skinny, good stretch in them, and they make your booty look great (yay, well placed pockets!). Love these. Want 10 more of 'em!

I'm a full figured woman, meaning a lot of junk in my trunk with thighs to match, so I needed a jean that will stretch a little and hug me at the same time. These levi's did just that. I'm tall too so the medium length was perfect. I got my daughter a pair as well because her thighs are big, she's very comfortable in these jeans. The color is perfect to match a Levi Jacket I purchased yrs ago.

Amazingly comfortable jeans! I like how they don't have to be constantly pulled up. The waist sits correctly, on my figure, at least. They are a tiny bit long on my 5'5" frame, but they still look great with my shoes, whatever they might be.

These are great jeans. No gaping at the waist. The cut is not too matronly. I've been wearing them for a couple of months now & they wash/dry great! I will be purchasing more of these.

I haven't worn Levi's for years so I was a bit skeptical about trying these. I wondered if they would still be of the same high quality that I remembered. It turns out there was no need for worry, they were exactly as expected - straight legs with a bit of give were necessary. I am very satisfied with these jeans.

These are nice jeans, I would buy this style again. I am retired and look ridiculous in the super tight skinny jeans. They complement my body type and are comfortable.

I am a size 18 to 20 and these jeans fit nice, but I do need to wear a belt. Nice fitting for curvy bottoms. Good long leg length too. To feel, they are a thin material stretch type jean, but they don't look like a thin material.

I love these jeans - I first found them on another website and then I found the milky nights on here. I recently discovered that the hammered dark were available here too, those were the original ones I found at a different site...less expensive here for sure. I've bought shoes, blouses, and jeans from here and will continue to do so. True to size except the shirt. I bought a roper sleeveless and it was a bit fitted but I love it anyways. Will keep shopping and recommending to friends. By the way, I am 5'4" and a 3xl and I usually have a hard time finding clothes.

I ordered these in straight leg, and the color is Milky Night. It's a really nice shade of blue and the fabric feels nice and soft. It also has a good deal of stretch to it. Typically, I am between a size 18 and 20. Depending on the cut of the jean, a size 18 can give me a muffin top. I ordered a size 20 in these and they are a really good fit. In fact, I'm thinking that I probably should have ordered an 18 so that the tummy slimming would be a little more effective. They still fit great though, so I'm keeping them and maybe I'll order a smaller size soon, just so that I have both options. These don't look too big and with the stretch, they are just super comfortable for being active and almost feel like I'm wearing a legging (even though these are not jeggings).

Love the way these fit - comfortable but they also hug the body. One of the best pairs of jeans I've bought online without trying on. I would say they run a little small to size.

I bought these as a gift along with another pair of different jeans. My friend loved this pair, and they fit her beautifully, without being too tight or awkward looking. She's a curvy lady, so finding pants that don't give her the dreaded double-belly can be trying. The second pair did just that, which is why I returned them. As always, Zappos makes shopping for others so easy!

These are really great jeans, especially for tall people (I am 5'10"). I ordered them in every color available. They came lightning fast and I saved a considerable amount of money over Macys, which is where I bought my first pair.

I love the way these jeans look but for some reason this color runs smaller/tighter than the same style Levi's in the lighter blue which means I can't rely on my sizing experience. That said, I think they are nice looking jeans but I cannot fit into the pair I got since they fit too tight.

Well being 5 feet tall and a size 16/18 with an hourglass shape, it's hard to find jeans that fit and look great..these are pretty good, my only issue was they were too long as usual..they will need hemmed, but are comfortable and the waist does NOT gap. :) I also recommend the Levi 525 straight leg in size 16 short..they fit like a glove and also do not gap at the waist...if I could find the 512 in an 18 short they may be the perfect jean for me, alas the search continues.

My go to everyday jean. I love the dark wash and slimmer fit that's not too tight. These are cut a little smaller than most plus size brands and the rise is a little low so beware if you have a long inseam. They do stretch out after a day of wear but hold up better than other brands I've had.

"Fluffilyfabu"

from "Fabulah-city", DC

These jeans are a plus any fluffy woman's wardrobe. They appear to slenderize and elongate a bit. The darker wash is complimentary to the fluffy figured. I did not give them all fives because they take a little work getting into and sit a "smidge" low for the front. But once on you will be so glad that you did it! I Recommend getting your size or maybe even a size up as Levi's were not originated for fluff. Bottom line, they make some effort for us. For that, I am grateful. You will not go wrong with these. Go ahead and give them a try.

Brands I'd also recommend: Calvin Klein (+size), Joe Brown's, Angel Ribbons, SourceofWisdom (THE BEST!)

I needed a new pair of jeans and I really wanted a pair of Levi's. I haven't had a pair in years and these seemed to be what I needed at a good price. The hips and thighs fit great, but the waist is not properly sized. If you're thick in the middle, size up. I'm a size 18 pretty universally and this is the first 18 I've ever bought that is tight in the waist. A 20 might have fit better in the waist but been too loose in the hips and thighs. I supposed what I'm interpreting as too tight is just their "Higher waist with a specially cut, slimming tummy panel that shapes and smooths your curves", but it's just a recipe for unsightly muffin-top. I wanted a dark wash without 'faded' or 'whiskered' details, but this style does have manufaturer 'fading' on the thighs and seat, which is not described or apparent in the product images. It also has gaudy gold thread in the rear pocket detail. At a size 18, my ass is big enough without calling attention to it.
