This time, I’ve decided to examine the fit of Gap jeans. Armed with a camera and measuring tape, I went to Gap to take a look at jeans. The brand focuses on making jeans. They have a wide range of models and washes, and I tried on various types to have a complete picture. I’m sharing with you guys the results of my “fashion investigation.” If you wish, you can read similar reviews about Abercrombie and Fitch jeansHollister jeans, and H&M.

Ladies, please know that I’m providing you with the measurements for a specific pair of jeans. I’m giving the links and name of each pair. Different models may have different measurements.

For a reference, my waist is 25.75 inch (65 cm), my hips are 36 inch (91 cm), and I am 5.5 ft (168 cm).

I tried on size 26. The jeans are a little baggy, but they are supposed to have this fit. They are big for me in the waist. I don’t like it because it makes me look bigger and less curvy. In my opinion, good girlfriend or boyfriend jeans are supposed to be baggy in hips, but the waist has to fit you perfectly.

The material of the jeans is thick, and it stretches just a tiny bit. I really like the wash.

Waist: 14 inch

I tried on size 26 R. Again, the jeans are little bit big for me in the waist. They are less big compared to the first pair; it’s not so critical. The material is similar to the previous pair – thick with a tiny bit of stretch.

One thing I didn’t like is that they are baggy in the crotch. You can see it on my photo. It’s also noticeable if you watch the video on the Gap website.

I tried on the jeans in sizes 26 R and 27 R. Even though I was able to button 26, I felt like the jeans were too small for me. It was uncomfortable. Size 27 felt better. If you like very tight jeans, you may go with your size; otherwise, I’d recommend sizing up. If you compare the measurements of two sizes, the difference is not big. The material of the jeans is thin compared to girlfriend jeans, and it stretches really well.

For some reason, Gap doesn’t have these jeans on their website. So I’m not able to provide you with a link. The price of the jeans is $79.95 if you want to find them in the store. Size 26 R was good for me but a little bit big in the waist (not critical). The material of the jeans is thin and stretches well.

Real Straight Jeans

I tried on real straight jeans in size 26 R. They fit me perfectly. The material is thick with a bit of stretch. The wash of the jeans is beautiful.

One thing to notice about the jeans is the inseam. I’m 5.5 ft (168 cm), and to me it seems that the jeans were a bit short. I suppose it depends on your preferences, but I like straight jeans to be longer.

Waist: 14 inch

Overall, Gap jeans are of good quality with careful stitching. The buttons, zips, and other small details are done professionally. Unfortunately, many Gap jeans are a little big for me in the waist. I guess they are made for other body types.

Usually, size 26 R is good for me, but with skinny jeans I prefer sizing up. I just don’t like super tight jeans.
