Denim Cross-Back Overalls

Denim Cross-Back Overalls is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from flattering, but rides high These are definitely chic overalls, and like many one-pieces, they ride high in the crotch. If you know you have a long torso, I would size up. And they are most definitely slim - don't size down!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too tight in the waist I loved the look of these overalls, with the black color and high waist. I ordered my standard XXS, and when they arrived I was so excited. The legs were a bit long for my height (5'1") but nothing a cuff couldn't fix. My problem was where the waist hit. The side buttons hit at my natural waist, and they were so so so tight, i could barely move. I had to suck in just to give some slight relief. I definitely had trouble bending over to cuff the legs, I thought the buttons might snap! I'm hesitant to go up to an XS because I like how skinny the legs fit in the XXS, so if I went to an XS for the better waist, the legs might be a big slouchier. Not sure how I feel about that without going to a store and trying them on. I was disappointed that the waist was so tight even though XXS is my standard size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super adorable! I adore these overalls, they make me feel so stinking cute!! I wish the inseam was a bit longer because I'm 5'8" but I think highwater pants are still pretty in so it's all good. The overall fit is great, and super flattering. I want to wear them everyday!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Overalls You've Been Dreaming Of! I've been dying for a pair of overalls. The baggier styles just make me look large. These are comfortable, easy to put on, so sleek & LOVE the high waist. So flattering. I'm 5'6", 155lbs, I usually wear a 28/29, and the medium fits great, but I have the straps on the longest possible, might not work for taller girls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Versatile! I love love love these overalls! Using the size chart, I thought I needed an XS. After receiving them and trying them on, I realized with the slim cut and and slightly dropped crotch a S would be best. As other reviewers have mentioned, they do stretch with some wear but overall they've held their shape beautifully. They look cute with a tshirt or a button up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Wait is Over I'd been eyeing these for months, but was weary spending full-price on a pair of overalls I wasn't sure I'd wear often. Ended up buying them on sale & would wear them daily if I could get away with it. Very comfortable and well-made. Has a bit of a stretch to them. I'm 5'4", size 26, 34C and usually wear a small/x-small in tops at Madewell. The size small fits perfectly aside from needing to roll the legs a bit. Would recommend. Full-price or not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from funky and flattering I am obsessed with overalls, and there is something a little unique about the fit of these. The fit is slender and attractive, so I feel a little more put together when I wear these vs. my slouchier overalls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it! I don't know why I've been so into one pieces lately, but I LOVE these overalls. I've been getting complements them all the time. It's great for the winter because while they are a tighter leg fit, it is absolutely roomy enough to wear tights or leggings underneath for extra warmth. Looks cute with a tank or cami and also long sleeves and button ups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from adorable, even for the short and curvy Really like these overalls. I'm 5'2", about 135 pounds, with an hourglass shape, so I was concerned about the fit on me. I tried on the small in the store, but it was too tight (usually I wear about a 30 or 6-8 in pants) and the large was about 2 sizes too big. I ordered the medium and was happy with it. It was still a little tight on the bottom half on first wear, but broke in easily. Thumbs up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So cute and flattering! I went out on a limb with these overalls and was really pleasantly surprised! They fit really comfortably, they're slimming and shapely at the same time, and have a cute and classic look. I was unsure what size to order (5'11 140 lbs) but I ended up with a small and they fit great! The only real complaint I have with these is they could be just a little bit longer.
