With NYDJ pants, it is either a hit or miss with its fit. This Marilyn crop pant was a hit for me. I didn't size down and the 0P I ordered fit perfectly in the waist, hips, and length!

Love these! I’m 5’1” 140lbs. I purchased these in 10P and I look fabulous! Soft, comfy, slimming and stylish. They end just at my ankle and look great with my wingtips and white tee.

When I first put these on I was thrilled with the fit and comfort. But after wearing them a couple of hours they were so stretched and baggy I couldn't wait to get them off. Terrible!

decided to keep when tried on. When I wore them for a while after washing, the fit changed. They slip down. If I use a belt, need to tighten so much to keep them up, they are uncomfortable.

I really liked the style of this pant but unfortunately I had to return them. I am just under 5' and I ordered a 0P. The fit was perfect in the hips and in the length of the pant, considering these are ankle pant, but the waist was too big and the back rise could have been a little higher. I wonder if these were available in 00P if that would have made the fit better for me.

Runs small even for skinny jeand, would suggest ordering one size up. Nice design and color. Wasn't familiar with release hem, so was surprised they are not hemmed, will need to return, cannot wear to work.

I am puzzled by these pants. I have ordered the Marilyn model before, size 8 petite and they were my favorites...good fit, comfy, minimal sagging (spandex factor). I ordered these in 8P, 10P. I couldn't get them on! If they had fit, it looks like they'd be skin tight, not what I was looking for. NYDJ has deviated from what they started out being...an alternative to jeans for a younger population. Too bad. I am over 60 and want jeans that I don't feel ridiculous in, and comfort, of course.

These were cute, but I don’t agree with other reviewers to size down. I went one size down and these were not close to fitting. The color is awesome though, I may reorder in a bigger size.

I have not yet figured out the sizing system of NYJD. I have sizes three styles of their jeans in three sizes: 8, 10 and 12 and they all fit. I wish they would design them so that no matter what the style, the size will be the same across the board. Its very annoying and confusing. So I normally wear an 8 in the surestretch, but the 8P, which should fit the same in the waist as an 8, is like two sizes smaller, so I will reorder a 10P and a 12P because I have no idea which will fit. There is no consistency!

After a lengthy, frustrating search for some jeans I could actually spend more than a few hours in, I settled on these Ami Skinny Leggings in Lark. I’ve had them a couple of months now and can confirm they are as good as I’d hoped. The fabric is extremely comfortable: soft, stretchy, smooth, not too hot during cooler days in summer, but also warm enough that I’ve been wearing them on chilly days this fall with boots and they’ve done fine. They’re just a tad long for my 5’1” frame,(all petites are longer these days), but not so long that I needed to have them hemmed. I like how they look with sandals as well as my ankle boots. The lark color worked well for me. Dark but also with subtle shading. I’m concerned that they’re going to stretch out in the knees, because the material is thin, but I hope not. NYDJ is all over the place on fit, fabric, and color. I find that the exact same size and style in one color fits differently than in another color. This style in the Mabel color, for me, was uncomfortable and stiff. I’ve found the same to be true across the board on NYDJ jeans, no consistency. Just makes it so much harder to find the right fit. Glad Zappos makes it possible to try on enough pairs to find a fit. I keep buying NYDJ jeans, frustrating though it is, because they still come the closest to that pair of jeans I can live with. But holy moly they’re expensive.

I agree with the previous review. I too, ordered a replacement for my favorite jeans in the same size. The sizing has changed, or the material is not as forgiving as it once was.

I bought two other NYDJ pants in the same order in the same size which fit fine, these in a 12P were far too small and also absolutely not a petite pant. Not for those under 5"5 or 5"6 and run small in the waist/thighs. Also they were kind of shiny, which wasn't appealing to me. Returned.

I have four pairs of NYDJ jeans in size 4 petite and ordered this pair in 4 petite to replace one of them that is too worn to keep wearing. I was surprised when I put the new pair I ordered on and they are too small. Has NYDJ changed their sizing or was I just unlucky with this pair?

cute pants typical NYDJ fit and quality. But they have a seam down the back and front of the pant leg, I needed a really comfy pant for a 9 hour plane ride and that seam would irritate me. If not for that I would have kept them

Comfortable and great fit for people with curves. The back pocket stitching is indeed high contrast as the name implies...so much that the eye focuses on your rear end. If you're looking for jeans to highlight your rump, buy these. If you're looking for jeans that minimize the size of your rump, do not buy this style.
