For me, jeans are everyday attire so they need to be comfortable, durable and fit well. They can't be to low on my hips or too high( got forbid) ..... These jeans are just right . Although they are light weight they feel quite durable. Love them...these were my test pair and now I will order more. They wash well but bleed a fair amount of color so it you want your white panties to be a pale shade of blue go for it :). I'm 5'2.5 and weigh just under 100lbs so the size 2 fit perfectly. Definitely recommend.
