Guide to review: Levi's 505C Slim Fit vs Bedford Ave Skinny Jeans

A denim guide to compare the fit and measurements of our women's skinny jeans vs slim fit, Williamsburg Bedford Ave vs Levi's 505C fit

Our smallest women’s fit is the Bedford Ave, it’s a classic skinny jean fit. Compared to Levi’s 505C slim fit, the look will be different in reviewing the photos and sizing chart, but it’s safe to say you should wear the same size in both styles. The biggest difference appearing at the rise and ease through the legs. Note, the Levi’s jeans measurements show more ease and appear to be slightly looser in fit, but remember, this is a comparison of stretch vs non-stretch in the 505C’s fabric. The snugness is not as dramatic as the measurement differences appear. The bottom opening of the Williamsburg skinny is 1” smaller, so the look will be more form fitting and the waist sits lower on the hips with the shorter rise.
