These are great looking, slim fit jeans that hold their shape. I would say they are not quite as slim as leggings, as one reviewer said, but they are definitely slim. Also only ankle length if you are tall (I am 5ft 9in). I would normally buy an 8 in Eddie Bauer, but I absolutely needed the 10 in these. Go up a size for sure because of the slim fit. They look great with a blazer or long sweater (that covers the tummy and bum).
