I seldom shop at the Gap, but occasionally they come up with a killer item and I’m all over it. Right now I’m totally smitten with their hot off the press legging jeans. They are super soft, comfortable and a pretty good fit. The rise measurements are not available online, but the rises on the pair I bought are 8.5 inches in front and 13 inches at the back. A decent length of rise. Remember that you can have the waist adjusted if that part is too roomy.
They are available from sizes 00 to 20 in regular, petite and tall in both blue and black denim washes. That’s an incredibly deep assortment of size and colour! They are $69.50 full price but with a 45% off coupon I managed to get them for about 39 bucks.
Don’t let the super tapered detail of these legging jeans or “jeggings” scare you. I plan to wear mine tucked into all sorts of boots (from over-the-knee to mid calf lengths) which makes the tapering ideal (no bunching!) I shan’t be wearing them with ballet plats, pumps, sandals or booties because I prefer a bit of hem scrunching volume on my skinnies when they aren’t tucked into boots. And these leggings jeans clearly don’t scrunch.
I sized down because I wanted them extra snug. They are quite stretchy so nothing is cutting off my circulation yet.
