I purchased these AE jeggings a while back during a sale for $32, and was initially excited about how they fit and felt. After some thorough nitpicking, I decided to send them back and instead bought the Gap Legging Jeans in 00P, which I now love love love. Since these photos were already taken, I figured I’d share my thoughts anyways:
Verdict: Return. However, for someone who doesn’t mind a low rise plus contrast stitching on the back pockets, these are not bad. The fit was very decent plus the material was sturdy and comfy…not at all flimsy like leggings.
More funky fit…note the itty bitty gap above by my crotch. Probably means the thighs are too tight. I know a reader (Bella) mentioned she was going to order the AE jeggings in sz 14 – if so I’d be interested in hearing how they fit. If anyone else ended up getting these, I’d love to hear your thoughts as well.
The Gap Legging Jeans I ended up ordering in 00P, “faded dark wash” provided a solution to all of the above complaints. I paid about $50 for them which is pretty expensive, but I think they are worth the premium over the pictured AE’s. *However* the color of the Gap’s are a little more medium blue than true dark. Keep an eye out for those later : )
