Rated 4 out of 5 by crewgirl Runs small - like most high rise
I had to order up a size because the waist was too tight. Otherwise, everything else about the jeans is great. If you have a little belly, size up. You lucky small waisted ladies will be okay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Katie The perfect black jean.
After having a miserable time with J. Crew denim, I am bragging to everyone I know about how perfect the new line is! These are THE black jeans, accept no substitutes -- Especially if you're a curvier girl. My only complaint? Debris (animal hair, fuzzies, lint) clings to the fabric very easily, but keep a mini lint roller on hand and you're set!

Rated 2 out of 5 by NGail Stretch Out Quick
I was happy to find that JCrew is making high waisted skinny jeans, and these were great when I tried them on. But they stretched out within hours of wearing them, looking like comfy hang-around-the-house jeans instead of the killer tight black skinny jeans I was hoping for. And, like other reviewers have mentioned, they collect so much lint!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Meegan Great fit, poor recovery
The fit is amazing, true to size and wonderful that it was available in tall sizes- I would buy in every color! Unfortunately, the fabric stretches at the knee after a few hours of wear- by the end of the day it looked like I needed to head to the tailor to have them taken in. Also, like another reviewer mentioned, the fabric, unlike other black denim I have purchased from J Crew, picks up every light fiber or lint you come into contact with- keep a lint brush in your bag- you will need it!

Smooth. I mean, I just dropped a clean-licked spoon in the empty peanut butter jar, so I can appreciate the supportive hug of a high-waisted stretch jean. My front looks less like my back and my back looks less chunky. That's enough.
