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.

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.

Great wash and cut! Very comfortable, but run a bit big through the legs. Perfectly true to size in the waist, seat and length, but were too loose through the thighs. Nothing that couldn't be fixed with an easy alteration. Possibly could have gone a size smaller. I'll definitely buy them again!
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.
