I wrote to Decade to ask about my fit problem -- my hips are on the smaller side compared to the rest of me, and the higher-waisted women's jeans I like bag out in the hips in an unflattering way. The suggestion was that I try the Alex in one of two sizes and since I was thinking of the baggy hips, I ordered the smaller of the two. They look amazing -- but my weight is down almost ten pounds after an illness (hoping it'll stay there, but who knows?), so when everything went on sale, I ordered the larger of the two suggested sizes to have on hand just in case. As of now, I'd say I like and will wear both -- the smaller size is so flattering, and the larger a bit more relaxed. The denim is such high quality! Now my hope is that you'll bring back the Alex in black again . . . . I haven't had good black jeans in awhile.
