These jeans are soft and comfy and they fit great. I love that they're fair trade and I'm happy to support that. However, this is the second pair of Target's new fair trade jeans that I've purchased and both of them smell AWFUL. Multiple washes, airing out, spraying them with things to try and mask the smell....nothing works. I'm afraid I won't be purchasing more of these until they no longer carry that odor. I don't know if there's a real correlation between the smell and the fair trade jeans or if it's just a coincidence. Maybe the factory they come from has something to do with it. Whatever it is, PLEASE do something about it and I'll happily purchase more of this line of jeans!
I received these jeans yesterday, and I like them so far! My comments on things others have written, as well as things I was looking for but didn't find when I was reading through reviews:
Material: Super soft and stretchy! Not super thick at all like one review suggests. They're almost like jeggings.
Smell: Mine do have a smell, but it's not bad or chemical-y, more like... perfume-y? Again, it's not bad, but it's a little potent. I haven't washed them yet but I'm hoping the smell will subside once I do.
Pockets: These have front pockets!!! They're not as deep as some I've bought by Universal Thread, but I'll take what I can get. They're a little less than 3 inches deep.
Stretch: They're super stretchy but don't seem to get baggy around the knees or anything.
Sizing: I'm 5'4" and 200lbs and I usually wear a size 12 in Universal Thread, so that's what I bought. I have a bit of a tummy, but these cover your stomach nicely. When I'm standing, they come up just to the top of my belly button. The legs fit perfectly on me, but the waist is a little too tight and squeezes uncomfortably when sitting. I may have bought them in a 14 had I known that.
The wash and style of them is super cute. Unfortunately, I had to return them because they fit strangely due to the thickness and texture of the material. It's very thick and super soft it's also extremely stretchy... which isn't really a complaint but it makes them look a but unflattering on. They also seem to run a bit large which I guess also doesn't help. They create strange creases that highlight details nobody wants accentuated. They also weigh a surprising amount and smell kind of terrible... like formaldehyde. It's a shame I couldn't just keep them for comfy jeans days, but they are just so unflattering I didn't even want to wear them at home.
These are my favorite jeans!!!! I’ve ordered a second pair. VERY comfortable. Stay put and don’t have to pull up. Super soft and flexible. High rise and hold stomach in. I had surgery and they are the only jeans that didn’t bother my stiches on my stomach.
I’m very sensitive to smell. I noticed others saying they returned due to a bad smell. These had no smell. I’ve never ordered anything from target that when I opened, it had an odor. (And I’ve been ordering from target for over 9 years)
Highly recommended these.
love these jeans and you will too! Soft and they feel like high end jeans! Ladies, get them, get two of them. My sister recommended, she says size down but Im in between a 16W and an 18 and both the 16 fit (more snug) and the 18 fit with no sag so I say true to size or size down, just get them, you'll e sorry you missed them.
