Gap had a 40% off sale on Monday and I decided to stop in and see if they had any legging jeans available after seeing Extra Petite’s blog post with them on and fitting like a glove. Unfortunately for me they were out of the Legging Jeans and the closest thing they had was the Always Skinny style. The size 00R didn’t look too big, so I grabbed a couple pairs and went to try them on. Oh, the misery…
(Disclaimer: I took these pics after the gym, so please excuse the mess of hair I’m sporting.)
- First pair: Always Skinny in Medium Wash – 00R
|Standing on my tiptoes! These jeans were at least 4″ too long.|
|These things were comically long.|
|Hard to tell, but the butt is kinda baggy and the crotch is way too low.|
- Second pair: Always Skinny in Saturated Dark Wash – 00R
|Sizable gap in the waist. (so sorry for the blurry pic)|
|You can see how much I had to roll up. Kinda baggy in the thigh area too!|
|Baggy butt is more obvious. So not hot!!|
These jeans were a definite bust. The legging jean style probably would’ve worked out much better but I’m definitely a petite size and can’t do the regular sizing. I’ll just wait until Gap has an online sale to order some 00P legging jeans next time!
Just for reference, here are my current skinny jeans from Charlotte Russe that I bought last Christmas. I wish they still sold this style in the stores, but I haven’t seen it after January of this year. Similar style here.
|No waist gap|
|Tighter in the butt|
|Perfect length 🙂|
Also for reference, here are my numbers:
Hope that was helpful to the petite girls out there. And I apologize for hurting your eyes with the ill-fitting Gap jeans. If there was a Gap Kids where I went, I would’ve totally stopped in there to check out their kids line, especially after seeing Stylepint’s postings. Next time!
