Rated 5 out of 5 by PoochyPal I love them
I was put off ordering these after reading the sizing issues. I then saw the tv presentation where the presenter had them on, I decided to risk it. I'm between a 12/14 and ordered a 14 they are just right, maybe even a touch lose if you like snug. I'm not big round the middle. The denim is lovely, compares well with denims four times this price. So glad I ordered. I love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JackiefromKent my favourite jeans
When these came on as a OTO I bought them in pale blue but before doing so checked the reviews and seeing they came up small bought a 12 (usually a 10). I love them!! They are low waisted but these are the style I prefer, they are lovely sort denim with plenty of stretch and the polka dots make them different. Also the turn-up isn't sewn up and as I am only about 5ft 1 I straightened the bottom of them and they are the perfect length to wear as regular jeans!! Really wanted dark ones as well but quite expensive at full price, now they have been reduced have nipped in quick and ordered them. So in short, if you are short with a short body I think these are perfect!

Rated 2 out of 5 by keepmeposted 10,12 16?
I am a 10/12 the waist measurement given on these jeans has nothing to do with the size. The 10 I could not even get on. The 12 I got into, but would not fasten by about 3 inches. I have now ordered the 16, I'll cut the label out if they fit!!
The jeans are lovely, great color and fabric. What I think has happened is that some one has measured the wait band not realizing that they are a low cut and the band is somwhere between the wait and the hips.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Drawingthefuture Completely wrong sizing
Watched the presentation and thought the OTO was a superb price so ordered two. But although I ordered my normal size and did not hear that they come up small when I went on the web site the next day I read that they were not true to size for the majority of customers. And so they proved for me. In order to fit I would have needed at least two sizes larger and the rise in the tummy area was so short that it would have been uncomfortable even if the fit had been correct. There was very little stretch to it. I feel that all this should have been highlighted by the presentation but both will now have to be returned with p&p considerations. I feel strongly that if a size is given it should reflect the true size preferably based on standard high street sizes which most ladies are familiar with.

Rated 4 out of 5 by avalon56 Good Quality
I saw all the reviews on these, but as a OTO, thought I would order them. I ordered a size 12, because I already have a pair of Rennie's jeans, and they are a good fit, being size 14 high street size. They arrived today. They are a good quality, but they don't sit on my waist, they sit below, showing the top of my underwear, so I would need a belt to keep them up. They are baggy around by bottom, but fine on the hips, which a pity because they are really lovely jeans, and unusual because of the polka dots, but will be returning them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by yak19e Great jeans
Received my women with control jeans today and after reading the reviews I was not sure whether they would fit. I am a 16 to 18 and 5'2 in height so ordered the 18 and they fit like a dream. Good quality material and unusual with the dots. Enough elastane for comfort all day wear. Thankyou Renee

I am a size 14/16 and ordered the 14. I could just about get them on but they are incredibly low rise which causes a massive muffin top. Not pleasant. The fabric is nice to look at but has very little stretch. I have other trousers in this brand that have been great. Sorry but these didn't live up to the advert.

Rated 3 out of 5 by skyeskye So so small
I am writing this review after I am having to send back the second pair of these jeans. I take a standard size 16 and after reading the reviews I ordered one size up. Still far too small and short in the rise so very much a more hipster style. I liked the quality and fabric and design so paid to send them back and as the next size up was not available I waited till they came back in stock and reordered, paying another lot of postage. Still too small in fact they felt smaller than the size I had already sent back. Although the presentation does not help with the sizing issue, which is slightly irresponsible, please take note of all the reviews and size up. Of course we really don't want to have to order a size bigger than our usual size!
