Dainese Women's D19 Jeans
Great looking pant but buy a size down
These pants look and feel great however be aware of the following when buying online. They are a little on the large sizing. I am a size 10 with a larger than average backside so I usually find that a 10 is quite snug across the rear.
However when these arrived was disappointed that they were quite loose around the waist and behind the thighs, essentially I could have gotten away with a smaller size, particularly given the fabric has a stretch element.
They also sit a little low at the lower back area and if you are of a fuller bottom (as I am) you can feel a little exposed once you're in the riding position.
Despite all this, they do look great on and are very comfortable to ride in.. I just wished I'd purchases a smaller size.

Thin denim, kevlar is only in the knees
This denim is the same weight as my regular jeans. 98.5% cotton, 1.5% lycra. The kevlar jersey is soft and ONLY at the knee. Hips and butt are unprotected.
They are cute so I may look at some other Dainese's. I ordered 32 to go over hip and knee armor. I'm usually a 6, rarely 8. 32 fit OK, waist 2" below belly button. I measured the inseam on these 32 x 32's, and it is actually 31.
Revzilla shipped these the same day I ordered and I had them in 2 days. There's a return sticker in the box, so hopefully the return is easy.

I purchased a size 27 in these jeans. My normal size is a 0 or 2 in pants. They sit low on me so I wear a longer shirt so it stays tucked in. They are comfortable and cute!

Not made for everyone
The style is not made for women with any sort of curves. I'm 5'8" w/ 28" waist but more curves in the hips/rear, and these pants just couldn't cut it. Wouldn't recommend if you have anything more than a pancake in back. Very stylish and excellent quality otherwise. Definitely a good fit for those who love extra skinny jeans. I should have known better before purchasing these.

True to size, I think...
I love the way these jeans look. I am usually a 27, but I ordered a size larger (28) because I figured my regular jeans stretch and these likely do not. Also if they were a little bigger, that meant I could put tights or long johns underneath during winter. I should have gotten the 27 bc the 28 are slightly baggy. So, if you are worried you will not be your regular pant size in these jeans, just order your regular size. They run true.
I think I still look prett bada$$ in them, even with a baggier fit! The "boyfriend" fit is in, right? The back pockets are roomy and have a durable zipper, so I can put things in my pockets if I feel like riding without a jacket or bag. The protection looks pretty light, as its only kevlar reinforced and not entirely kevlar. I would buy these in blue too when they have my size, and I will get a size smaller next time!

They fit well, they are stretch but I would had take a size smaller. You have to wear it with a bell. Also, I would have take (but it wasn't possible) a longer size. We see the ankles when we are sit on the bike.

Feel & looks great, no complaints
The pants fit really well to my shape, and it felt "amazing". The stretch felt better than those regular jeans with extra peace of mind knowing it will protect you better than regular jeans. I love the texture and styling too, it subtle but stylish.

Great looking/fit women's kevlar jeans
These are the best looking, most flattering fit, women's kevlar jeans that I've had. Sharp & sleek design. They have a low waist, under the belly button which I prefer. The jeans are thick fabric which might be hot in summer and have kevlar, but that is why I bought them. The durable jeans/fabric moves around easily, not stiff. They are comfortable. Since they are a lower waist jean I recommend wearing a tight belt to avoid showing crack in a sporty position. They fit true to size. I measured my waist which is 30', got a size 30 and they fit great. I'm 5'6" and my weight fluctuates lately between 134-138 lbs. The legs seem to be fitted down towards the ankle. So they tuck into boots nicely, you wouldn't be able to wear them outside boots. I love these jeans. I bought the blue since that was the only color available and when the black arrives, I'll buy those too. I didn't give excellent to all categories since these aren't really for air flow and the protection isn't full on because they are jeans. But for kevlar jeans they are the best. They rock! Highly recommend.
