Rated 5 out of 5 by AnimalPoet Got a second color!
I am 5'3" tall. My weight fluctuates between 96 and 100 lbs (In earlier reviews I wrote a slightly higher figure, but I just noticed that I'm fluctuating a few pounds lower, which does not change my size, just makes the fit easier!) I wear 0 petite in Bean signature straight jeans and 2 petite in Bean Signature skinnies. Both 0 and 2 are my sizes, depending on type and manufacturer of jeans. I bought my first pair of these ankle jeans in the denim washed, size 2 - my review is here. Then I ordered mineral red in size 0! Just as I predicted, size 0 is a somewhat slimmer fit but is still very comfy. The lines of both sizes are flattering. The size 2s zip up easily; for the size Os, I have to inhale slightly, but then they "give" so I look and feel fine!!! As for the mineral red color, I was surprised: I did not expect to love it as much as I did. It's wonderful! A just-right "faded" "sunwashed" look! A very jeans-y look. A subtle, washed red. If you love washed colors as I do, you will love this hue, These ankle jeans look fabulous with the Saturday Tees, the polo and the henley versions, too. I am lucky to have them from more than one year, so I have many possibilities. The jeans are great, too, with the Seaspray hoodie over a tank or tee. Again, I have a bunch of Seaspray hoodies, so I am in luck. If you are in between two sizes, the larger size will give you a comfy, slender, but not skinny fit. The smaller of the two sizes will make the fit leaner. Do not size up.. These are true to size. Remember that both of the sizes I ordered are my regular sizes -- each just fits me somewhat differently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnimalPoet Love these! Wish there were more denim-blue washes
5'3" Weight fluctuates between 99 and 104 lbs. I wear 2 petite in the Bean Signature skinnies and 0 in the Bean Signature straight-leg. I got the washed rinse in 2. They are slightly longer on me than a true ankle jean -- but this is good -- just what I wanted. The fit is wonderful -- they are flattering and comfy. The legs are not as slim through the thigh as I expected, but the look is flattering and the all-over line of the jeans is excellent. I could wear them in 0 and obtain a more fitted look. Both would be great. Now, if these magically appear in an additional denim-blue rinse, I will get another pair. I would have to say, since 0 or 2 is my jeans size -- depending on style and manufacturer -- that these are true to size. If you hover between two sizes, as I do, know that the smaller size will give you a slimmer leg, with a bit more stomach suck-in to zip them up -- and the larger size will give you a slim-straightish leg that is easy-peasy to close. I recommend these jeans. I will by size 0 as soon as an additional blue wash appears. Bean?? Anyone out there? Ha!
