    Do u guys think I should wear Levis 511's cuz I'm 5' 5" and weigh 130 lbs? Currently wear 514's. I don't know if I should wear 511's cuz I have large thighs.

    What is your reason for wanting to wear 511? Are you going for the skinny jean look?

    511 on your weight will look skinny not slim.

    The 511 is a slim fit.

    But if you have thick thighs they will appear skinny fit. Unless you size up 1 or two sizes.

    You should visit a Macy's or JCPenny near you and try some 511's.

    Macy's also carries the 513 which is a slim fit like 511.

    There is also the 508 which is roomy on the top (like 514) but tapered on the bottom (511 leg opening).

    Does anyone know if Canada gets the same selection as the U.S? I notice the Canadian site has a smaller selection of jeans and other clothing.

    Does anyone know if the 511's are similar in size in the waist/thighs? I like the 514s up top but I find that the bottom of the leg opening is a bit big for my summer footwear.

    If anyone has any other ideas on how to address this, I'm all ears.

    How's the sizing in 501's compared to the one in 511's?

    I usually get a size 28 on 511's and i always end up moaning that i should've gotten one and even two sizes bigger. I'm pretty slim but i have girly curvy hip and slightly muscled legs from my swimming days. They end up loosing up with wear, but the first day i end up with stomachache huh, too damn tight.

    Should i order one size bigger or more on 501's? I usually wear size 28 on regular fit jeans from sites such as Zara, H&M etc and they're quite baggy on me, have to push hard a belt for them to stop dancing on my waist.

    I wear at 36*32 in the 501's original. I am thinking about getting a slimmer jean, what size should I get for the 511 and 514? The waist is perfect on the 501.
