I am 5’4” with massive runners calves, so its hard for me to find jeans that will be able to 1) make it up my leg, and 2) also not be too long. I’m also short waisted, so most regular jeans over the most trending seasons, wont work for me (need a low rise short). Mossimo were my fav and I still have and wear them. I’m also a late 30s librarian, so I like jeans that can be dressed up or down. So no strange fading, no major rips or shreds...I’m picky. I look for certain dye looks on jeans or certain colors. I grabbed these in fade Dreamlover, my regular size, after scouring through every possible jean display at my local T. I almost didnt try them on because the color is very 80s, and the rise says ‘high rise’. I normally know the minute I slide my leg in a jean, if Im going to love or hate them, and I knew the second I pulled these on. I would say they are more of a true mid-rise, being that Im short waisted and these hit just under my belly button, which was awesome. The cutoff length hit me right above my ankle, another plus, and the waist sits nicely and doesnt gap. Dreamlover has a different fabric content than the other color offered, and doesnt have much stretch and feels like an authentic, heavy Levi jean, almost stiff like someone else mentioned, and I also really like it. They run true to size, only snug spot was my calves and thats typical! Only downside is I wish the color was more blue and not so 80s faded, and the waist could be made in a lower rise option. The high rise can dig a bit at the waist when sitting, not because of being tight but the extra rise and material bunching up when you sit. But I do like these jeans and happy to have in my rotation!
