Great fit! Super soft material. I’m 5'6 and the petites fit perfectly, no need to hem and not too short.

Love these pants! I want to get a pair in every color. They are true to size (remembering that you have to order a size down in NYDJ). I love them and hope Zappos gets more colors.

Great! I’m 5’1” and wear with a Chelsea boot. I bought 2 sizes - a 10 to fit loose and boyfriend-y and an 8 for a more fitted look but still a cool trendy straight leg style.

These jeans run very small. I usually wear a 2 in nydj (because they normally run large) and 4p was too tight. I think even if I went up one more size they would’ve still been tight! Also, they are not high rise, just regular below the waist fit. I’m 5’3” 123lbs.

Re-ordered down one size after finding my regular size was too large. Nice shade of dark blue, very comfortable and excellent quality. Never bought this brand before but will look for other styles.

These run shockingly small compared to other NYDJ Marilyn Straights. I'm not going to try again, but, if I did, I think I would try 2 or 3 sizes up.

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

These fit perfectly and are a great color. My last pair of petite NYDJ jeans were 4 inches too long, and I'm 5.4. These are brushing the tops of my shoes. However, they smell like mothballs. I've washed them three times, and they still smell like mothballs. I can't wear them because they smell so bad.

I guess the other person is right they are more mid rise but I’m short waisted so that was fine. These are SO comfortable, exactly the right length for me (5’3”), and not see through. I love them.

I'm 5'2 1/2", and the petite length is perfect, just below the ankle bone, so I can wear not only 2" heels and boot but also sneakers. The waist and hips are a snug, nice fit. Although they give, they don't stretch out. They hug my calves, which I love, and are straight from there on down. The Marilyn straight petite is a great length and shape. I love that they are 98% cotton; this material gives them substance and body. I bought them in black, on sale, but I'll be watching for more colors. These are awesome.

You can hardly go wrong with NYDJ pants. They are true to size and very comfortable. The morning joy thing I wish is that they come in 27 inseam so I wouldn’t have to shorten them.

I liked the style and the fabric was thick so it didn't look like I was wearing yoga pants, but the waistband was a bit loose. I wear a 27 in jeans, but the 4P was too big for me. Unfortunately, the 2P wasn't available.

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.

So this technically did fit perfectly however, that was not the look I was going for, i AM 134 pounds and 5'2 and I got the 6p. It looked like jeggings on me, I wanted it to fit just tiny bit loose especially around my calfs, it's my way of looking a little slimmer. So if this is the look your going for I'd say get a size bigger, if not, the sizing is just right I would say. The material and length though was perfect it came directly on my ankles like I wanted it to.

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.
