I wear this style frequently, I washed them and tried to wear them. They are much wider in the legs than anticipated. Not happy, I'm wondering if these are seconds or knock offs.

I don’t know a petite who would put these on and have as much ankle showing as the picture would lead you to believe. Also, why call these jeans? They are denim tights. No pockets, either. sending back.

The Marilyn is a solid style for NYDJ and these petite straight jeans fit perfectly, as expected. The width of each leg hem, however, is 1" wider than the 15" in the website description. Another pair of the same jeans, different color, does have the 15" leg width, so I'm keeping those and rate them 5 starts overall, comfort and style.

I have numerous pairs of NYDJs jeans and also some ponte pants. These pants are not the quality one would expect from this maker. The fabric is stiff and the inner seam and outer seams do no lie flat. Very poor construction. Back they go.

Very nice pants. Perfect fit except for the length. Way long even though petite. I’ll have to get out the sewing machine.

Not as happy with this pair of NYDJ like I have been in past. The one I received was made in Mexico, older pair was from USA. Fabric a little softer which I don't like in a jean - I like firmness. This pair was not straight leg - looked more like a boot cut. Maybe this was because I needed the extra room (and a larger size) in the hip to be able to fit me so the calf area was larger too? I took in boot cut area with my sewing machine so now looks more like a straight jean. I've bought the Marilyn at least 3 times so I'm familiar with product.

These are advertised as black but they're blue denim so they are not what I expected. The style and comfort are great if you're wanting pull on jeans.

I ordered my regular size and the next size up. The waist fit the same in both sizes. They were soft, thick pants and were comfortable but they seemed to have spots that pooched out. Sent them both back.

I loved the way this fabric felt. Very comfortable where they needed to be. However, they were about two inches too long. I buy this size all the time and also wear NYDJ almost exclusively, but these seemed more like regular length than petite. Sadly, had to return them.

I must agree with other reviewers who express concern over the inconsistency with sizing. I ordered these in a 14P, yet they were significantly smaller than the 12P. Not only were they smaller in the waist and hips, but the legs fit more like a skinny jean. The quality of the jeans is fine, but sizing is an issue.

This is an update to my review above -- couldn't figure out how to edit that review. I sized up to 8P, and the overall fit was much different than in the 6P. It was wayyy too long and slightly too big/stretchy, which was strange. So I had to send the 8P back. Too bad.

Really nice pant, kind of stretchy, perfect length to wear with a short heel, and dresses up or down. I am sizing up however. The 6P was a little too snug for me around the waist, so I'm going up to the 8P.

The fabric has a great feel and stretch to it. The style is typical straight leg. What surprised me is that “Marilyn” jeans are smaller than “Marilyn” crops; I have new pairs of both. Thinking it was just my imagination, I got out my trusty tape measure. Both 4P have the same length zipper. Around the waistband (buttoned and zipped), the 4P crops were 32” and the 4P straight leg jeans were 30 ¾.” Around the “rear” area at the bottom of the back pockets, the crops were 37 ½, the jeans 35 ½. Marilyn crops fit me like a dream! Marilyn straight leg jeans feel like “skinnys” from the hip up.

These ponte pants are a dressier version of the Marilyn jeans. I can easily wear these to work as a teacher. They are supremely comfortable for all day wear, and the higher rise guarantees midriff coverage. The pockets are convenient for carrying my cell phone and keys. The Marilyn fit is a more flattering cut for my figure and age than a skinny jean or pant. A nice "dress casual" pant.

WARNING!! Product Description is WRONG. I already own multiple Ami NYDJ in Mid & High Rise in Size 2P. THESE jeans ARE NOT High or Mid rise!! They are definitely LOW RISE. The zipper is barely 3" long.
