Rated 4 out of 5Â by MillieMe Old 515's
Levi discontinued the old 515's which had a higher waistband and the normal levi logo. Plus size women do not want to draw attention to their butts, so they do not want pocket with a top button or fancy designs on the back pocket. I had 3 pairs of the the 515's when I discovered that they discontinued the style. I was down to my last pair (after 6 years) so was worried. I have 3 of the levis with the stretch fabric but I don't like the lower waistband. Finally they came back out with the same jean but with a different name.
My only complaint is that they are a bit long for short women.
It is too bad that they can not make plus sized jeans like the do with mean with different inseam lengths. I am 5'2 and could probably use an inseam of 28 or 29.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by JGAO Much different sizing than other colors of 580's
I ordered these in the Deep Melody color first and absolutely loved the fit. I ordered the same size in this color only to discover that they are a whole size larger and the "defined waist" styling I'd loved isn't the same. I was disappointed to find that Levi's sizing and styling is so inconsistent.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Erica22 Not Like The Old Ones
I ordered 4 pairs of 580s after waiting for more than a season. I had 2 pairs of cotton denim that felt like "real" jeans and LOVED EVERYTHING about them. The following year, I ordered them but they had buttons on the pockets which scratched wood chairs and just were unflattering so I sent them back. I was SO happy to see them this year with no buttons on the pockets. I tried them on and noticed they had a stretch to them. I like to call it "faux" denim. The hip/stomach area is very unflattering in this material and I have to wear a shirt untucked. The length on me is OK. I agree with someone else's' review - they seem cheap and less authentic than the originals. Designers... Sometimes it's best to leave things alone. Bring back regular cotton blend with no buttons. I would like an authentic, well fitting product. Would I recommend? It's based on an individual's fit. For me...thumbs down.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Dakotagr8 Love the fit
I ordered this on line and the fit was perfect right out of the box. They hug in all the right places. I have bigger calves and most jeans, even though they are boot cut, still hug my calves but these do not and I love it. As a matter of fact I am going to order several more pairs.
