WIT & WISDOM PETITE JEANS REVIEW

WIT & WISDOM PETITE JEANS REVIEW

 

A few months back, one of my readers reached out to me and recommend that I try out Wit & Wisdom jeans. Prior to this I’d never heard of the brand, but I’m always down to give a new pair of jeans a try. Happy to report that this brand makes super comfortable, pear-friendly jeans that won’t break the bank! Keep reading for the full reviews of the styles I tried.

Waist = 28’’

Wit & Wisdom Ab-Solution High Waist Skinny Jeans - Size 6 Petite 

What I loved…

  • Super comfortable - The fabric of these jeans was so incredibly soft!

What could have been better…

  • Slightly too long - These jeans were a bit long on me. In the picture, you can see how they are kind of bunching up around the ankles. 

  • Slightly big in the waist - I have to admit these pants were a bit to loose in the waist on me. However, they had elastic sewn into the waistband, which helped to hold them up. I probably needed a smaller size. 



Denim ratings:

Length: 4

Fit: 5

Waist gap: 4

Price: $$

Garment measurements:

Waist = 30

Front rise = 10

High Hip = 35.5’’

Low Hip = 36.5’’

Inseam = 28.75’’

Back rise = 15.5’’

Thigh = 23.25’’

Calf = 13’’

Verdict: Buy, but size down. 

 

Wit & Wisdom Ab-solution Stretch Skinny Jeans - Size 6 Petite

What I loved…

  • Fit - Compared to the straight leg version for the Ab-solution jeans (above), the skinny version fit my waist much better. No gapping! This was super impressive because they are a mid-rise jean and I’m never able to find mid-rise jeans that fit me. 

  • Length - Once again compared to the straight leg jeans, I found the length of the skinny leg jeans were better suited for me. (Inseam measurement = 27.75’’) 


Denim ratings:

Length: 5

Fit: 5

Waist gap: 5

Price: $$


Garment measurements:

Waist = 30.5’’

Front rise = 8.5’’

High Hip = 34’’

Low Hip = 35’’

Inseam = 27.75’’

Back rise = 13.5

Thigh = 21.25’’

Calf = 13’’

Verdict: Buy!

 

Wit & Wisdom Super Smooth Stretch Denim Skinny Jeans - Size 4 Petite

What I loved…

  • Fit well in waist - Wow! I was super shocked when I put these jeans on because they *actually* fit me in the waist, which is a rarity with mid rise jeans. If you’ve been looking a mid-rise pair, I definitely recommend try this brand.

  • Super comfy - Really loved how comfortable and soft the denim fabric is!
