ZELDA BARELY BOOT JEAN
The jeans were my favorite pair. I have owned a pair for three months now, averaging one wear per week. They ripped today and I was very disappointed in the short lifespan of the jeans. I will be looking for a better material for my next pair of Express jeans.

Great Fit, but Poor Quality
I've worn Express jeans for the better part of 12 years now. I've been through the Denim Lab, X2, and now the incarnation of Stella and Zelda. Before getting pregnant in late 2011, I wore the Stella Boot Cut in a size 4, at 135 lbs and 5'5" I was the thinnest I had ever been and loved the way Stella showed off my svelte figure. Post baby nothing fit the same and I needed new jeans. Enter Zelda. At 10 lbs above my pre-pregnancy weight I had to go up to a size 6. But, I looked great and these were definitely not "mom jeans." I bought them in May 2013, by December I noticed the material around the inner thigh/crotch was getting thinner. By February there were holes that just continue to grow. So disappointed. $80 for 9 months, and not even really frequent wear. I wear them about 2 days a week, sometimes not even all day, and only wash after several wears and dry on low. Definitely not the quality one would expect for the price. My old Express jeans never developed holes, and definitely not in only a few months. I did end up replacing them this week with another pair, I only hope the new ones last longer, if not, I don't know where I'm going to get my jeans from.

The ONLY jeans I will buy; love them
The are literally the only jeans I can buy and never regret the purchase. I love them so much. I bought my first pair nearly two years ago and I just bought another. The jeans fit the same way my old ones used to, which is SO refreshing because every other brand seems to be altering the sizings.
I'm 5'9' 138 lbs. I run somewhat regularly and the 6 longs fit like a dream.
Express, don't ever stop making these. Please and thank you.

These jeans definitely run big - I usually buy a pair that's a bit tight when tried on in the store, because denim can stretch so much after a wash. These certainly have stretched, and even gap in the back of the waist a bit.
That said, the material is SO comfortable. I love the barely boot leg, and these are a good to for when wearing heels. I do wish Express made more barely boots without the whiskered fade that highlights the thighs.
