Thank goodness J. Jill offered a black jean this year, because I needed a pair and J. Jill sells the only jeans that fit me. I first bought my normal petite size, but the length looked awful on me, so I returned them and bought a regular size. The length is now perfect, and I am a very happy camper--as usual, I love them. They look great and are all-day comfortable. Who could ask for more?

I bought a size 9, which I generally wear in a sandal, and they were too big, so I sent them back. When they went on sale, I thought maybe an 8-1/2 would fit, but they were too narrow, so I sent them back. A shame, because these sandals are very cute and classic, but what good are they if they don't fit?
No, I do not recommend this product.

I was not expecting these shoes to be comfortable, but they are so attractive I had to try them. Not only are they completely comfortable, they are well made of quality leather and stylish as well. Shoes don't get much better than these :)

I thought I'd try this, but feared this slinky rayon fabric would show every little blob of cellulite. Not this shirt, though! I also wasn't sure I'd be crazy about the neckline, but it looks great. I love the green color and will wear this a lot into winter, so it turns out I'm pleased with it. Wasn't expecting to be.
This weight is about all we can stand down here in South Texas until after Christmas. I am very happy J. Jill makes lightweight clothing in their fall and winter collections. Used to be you had to buy summer clothes in dark colors for fall, if you could find them. This is great! Something not black or navy blue...
Yes, I recommend this product.

Can't Get Over These Shoes :)

I got the silver ones. These are so soft inside and a perfect fit. I can't get over it! I like the hidden wedge for a little extra height, too, though I was afraid it would be funny looking. I went ahead and tried them, because I find a little heel more comfortable than a flat shoe. Besides the comfort walking in them, they look just great!
I am funny about shoes--my old feet hurt almost all the time--but these are very comfy and also adorable. I am very happy with them. I hope J. Jill makes some more in many colors. I would definitely buy black, red and navy.

I love the curved hem on this tee, but this tee runs small. It looks kind of dowdy on me, too. It was a bargain, so I am keeping it to wear for gardening, housework, etc. It does wash up nicely.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Although a light sweater, this does not show a single bulge! It is enormously flattering to my figure. So flattering, in fact, that I came back and bought a black one in addition to the teal one. Well worth the hand wash instructions, which I generally hate. This one is worth it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Having heeded the warning that these run very small, I went 2 full sizes up--perfect fit, so I have no complaints whatsoever about these little mocs. Love the color (blue), love how soft, love the updated classic look, love the great look with jeans. Love, love, love.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Love these

I replaced my elderly, identical white summer crops with a few new pairs while they were on sale. These crops fit perfectly, are a nice substantial fabric that you can't see through, and last a few years--well worth the price even when they are not on sale.
Hopefully the new batch's waistband elastic won't bunch up like most of the last ones did. However, I like these so well that I'm gambling that flaw has been corrected in the intervening years. I also would like to see more pockets in J. Jill pants, but I'm not sure that would work well in this particular fabric.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Is this shirt see through (specifically the blue/white one)?

Topic:Fabric
No, and I did buy the blue/white one. It runs a little small, though, compared to other XL's I've bought from J. Jill.

Sheerness

Purchasing as a gift for relative who will not wear if fabric is see-through and also will not wear cami under it. So is this as thick as wearever tankIwhich she does wear) or similar or sheerer?
Topic:Fabric
I do not find a cami necessary with this garment. This is a little flatter, less textured knit than Wearever and pretty similar in weight. BTW, no see-through is also a big deal to me, and I am very pleased with this item. You can buy it for your friend with confidence.

A warm-weather favorite in soft, relaxed linen. Full leg, elastic waist, on-seam pockets and slit at hem. 25" inseam, 23" petite, 28" tall, 25" women’s. Machine wash. Imported.
 

Petite M?

I'm looking for advice on the right fit.
I have one pair of forever wear crop pants, love them! Size regular M.
I've tried that size in the linen crop pant, too high on my waist.
Didn't like the fit.

On the advice of a sales clerk, tried the petite L, as there were no petite M. PL, too big. But I like that they sit lower on my hips, not up on waist.

Anyone else have this situation?
Would love some linen crops for the fall.
Sizing is getting tricky.
Petite vs regular?
Topic:Size, Fit
I have the same problem with Misses sizes, so I have gone to my same size in a Petite for pants. Perfect solution! Voila!!

what size should I get? wearever I can fit into xl in pants but i dont like items tight

and how wrinkled to they get
Topic:Size, Fabric, Quality, Fit
I wear a PXL pant, and they are a perfect fit--they are well cut and tailored, but they stand out from the body a bit like in the picture. Very comfortable.

After the second wash, they got soft and just slightly rumpled-looking but not messy or creased. I only ever ironed them after the first wash, and I'm on my 3rd to 4th season wearing them. I have them in 4 colors--these are my go-to crops in summer. I just love them--highly recommend.

Would it be possible to design these without pockets ? Most clients do not need "extra upholstery" or bulk in this area.

Pocket items can easily be carried separately.
Less bulk looks better.
Thank you
Topic:Fit, smooth silhouette
These fit fairly loosely, so the pockets don't "show." They *are* convenient. I miss pockets in so many of my crops and pants!

How well does this cardigan hold up after laundering?

This cardigan got picks in it before I ever even washed it. To be on the safe side, I'll have it dry cleaned if I ever wear it enough to get it dirty enough to take to the cleaners.

Soft leather with a braided center strap. Ultrapadded footbed. Rubber sole.
 

Do these"slap" when walking?

Since these do not have an ankle strap, do they make a "slapping" noise while walking...you know, people hearing you coming from a ways off?!
Topic:Fit
They aren't slappy on me at all. In fact, they fit like a glove.
