Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a jean that FITS! I have SO much trouble finding jeans that fit. I hate wearing jeans because they never fit me right. For reference I am 5'6" tall and weigh about 115lbs and I got these in the size 4 in Moody Blue (great color).. I have a waist so most the time jeans gap in the back horribly and I have to alter the waistband in order for them to fit. I also have issues with jeans being too short, I need a 32 inch inseam or they are just awkwardly short. I also don't like my jeans super tight on my legs, These are GREAT! I was SO shocked when I put them on and they didn't gap at the waist, they fit perfectly, they sit under the belly button in the front and the back is high enough that I don't have to worry about my backside not being covered. The fabric is comfortable and they are long enough too. So excited to finally have jeans I actually like. I am ordering more and getting rid of all my ill fitting jeans. Please JCP keep these around. And hopefully Levi's won't change the style or sizing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Levi's fitting. I love my 525's, they fit perfect and can always find my size at JCPenney's... Noticed some were complaining the inconsistency of the sizes. FYI, the darker the jean the higher the cotton count which means less stretch and the lighter the jean the less cotton and more elastane which means more stretch and looser fit. I personally wear the darker color to keep their shape to hold it all in LOL. I got the info on the Levi's website before purchasing from here.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not original 525 jeans Ordered these because my 7 year old 525 perfect waist straight jeans are getting frayed. Very disappointed. This is not the same at all! I have been buying and wearing Levi's for 40 years and it used to be the number jean always remained the same. Not so anymore. Returned and purchased 1969 Gap jeans which fit the way the 525 jeans should have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FINALLY! Perfect jeans Ever since the low/mid rise waist came into fashion I have struggled to find jeans that fit. I have bought many compromise jeans and gradually over the years the fits have gotten better as manufacturers realized not everyone wants their waist around their buttocks and that having hips doesn't mean you don't have a waist (from 6-7 different brands I have been able to wear). Levis were my favorites for 20 years and this is the first time in about 15 years I have been able to find some that fit right. I LOVE THESE JEANS! They are the most comfortable, best fitting jeans I have had in years. I am wearing them right now. Straight leg jeans are my favorites and these are perfect in the waist but a bit relaxed in the hip and thighs without being baggy. I just feel good wearing them. As someone else said, though, I would love them even more if the material were a bit heavier, like jeans used to be (I live in the North so light weight jeans are not the best for this climate).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product compliments the figure I have owned several 525s over the years and have tried many other types by Levis and other brands. This is the only one that does not accentuate that I am short with wide thighs like the others, especially the newer types of styles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 525 I love the fit. I don't like the low waist pants that create a muffin top. these are perfect. I wish they came in more colors!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Inconsistent Sizing Bought one pair 525 in the store that fit really well. Bought two more 525 online in the same size but different washes and they were a full size smaller than the one I had bought in the store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These jeans are so comfortable Purchased 2 pair of these jeans several years ago and just love them. They do run small and shrink a bit with washing but with the little stretch in the material, hasn't been a problem. Hope they don't stop making them!
