I purchased the darker wash with holes in the knees in a size 29- tag says 100% cotton. I love the look and wash of these jeans, but the cut seems very strange. All of my other Levi's (of different styles) are 29; I am always a size 8/29. I am 154lbs, 5'9" with a 30 waist and 39.5 hips. According to the size chart, I am a 29. The jeans fit in the waist, thighs, legs, and bottom, but across the hips and top of the butt the jeans feel two sizes too tight. I even tried to stretch them out for quite some time. It is as if they used a junior's pattern for women's jeans. I honestly do not have a big backside and my hips aren't that big either. I read all the reviews about people sizing down two sizes, but I had to size up a size. Did they change the cut or material since the last reviews that said these were super baggy? I don't care about having to wear a bigger size but the bigger size fits awkwardly. When I sized up to 30, the band seemed to fit like a 31, but it finally fit across the hips. I don't mind the baggy look; however, I will echo other reviews that said the pants in one size up now have an odd baggy spot in the area right under the butt, which is very unflattering. I know it says these are mid-rise, but they are closer to a high-rise and right below my belly button. I actually love the higher rise! People said they run long, and they do- but I don't mind because I have long legs. Levi's, please make these a tiny bit larger across the hips and top of the butt, or at least add some spandex. They are a beautiful jean and have a very fun vibe to them, just the sizing and the cut across the hips is so odd.
