Question
What is the difference between sizes 16 and 16W?
I have gone to 3 Kohl's stores and only found 1 pair of 16W Amanda jeans that fit.

I ordered 16 (regular) from the kiosk thinking they should fit similar to the 16W which I purchased last month. They did not fit!

Would you recommend that I buy an 18 (regular)? Are those measurements similar to the 16W?

Are the Gloria Vanderbilt Amanda jeans being discontinued?

With women's sizes, a "W" after a size number indicates that it is a Women's Plus size.

For your convenience, Kohls.com offers product guides to help find items that are better-tailored for our customers.

Below is a link. You can find the info under the "Women's Plus" section at the bottom.

I find that the jeans-pants sized with the W are shorter and have extra material along the upper legs for those who have the "Saddlebag" figure. Don't know nobody is mentioning this.

Usually the 16W has a larger waist then regular size 16. Since i've gotten "older", ( 63 years old) the 16 W fit better, not as tight on the waist and the rest of the jean still fits good. Hope this helps.

The size 16W are wider in the hip area/waist. I have found 95% of the time there is no problem with kolh's Amanda jeans. I have been told that when the jeans are made, there are several layers of fabric they cut thru, because of this sometimes the bottom layer may be cut smaller. Love these jeans.

Size 16 is based on regular sizing and 16w is for plus sized. Best idea is to check corresponding measurements on a size in each case per brand.

The SHORT are for those of us who are SHORT, but not petite. The SHORT is longer in length than PETITE and a little more ROOMIER in the right places than petite.

I bought 2 pair of Amanda jeans - both in the same size - but one "short" and the other "average" length. The short ones fit perfect in the waist, hips and legs - altho I still have to hem them. But the average length jeans are big everywhere! I couldn't believe it. So clearly there's a big difference other than the length. Would be nice if a size chart was provided. I'll have to return the average length jeans.

If you have an average body length, but shorter legs, this is the way to go. If you're short both in body and leg length, order a petite in your size. I have worn G.V. jeans for years and I fall into the "short" category. I order a 10 or 12 short and it almost always works.

As I've said in other answers on the Amanda jeans, the fit is fantastic. The spandex allows for varieties of shapes to benefit from the straight-leg style. These are straight leg jeans, not skinny legs jeans. However (as I have also said on other reviews) beware of the overdyed color selections in the Amanda style. The dyes run.

They have a very comfortable fit through the hips and thighs. Not baggy if you buy your correct size! The pockets on the rear are well placed and flattering! I love thse jeans! They fit very nicely---not like tights and not like you were poured into them! I hate jeans that look like they are spray painted on!!

Question
what is the difference in regular and classic fit?
I bought a pair of Amanda jeans at Kohl's and they said classic fit on them. Is that the same as regular fit? I love them because they come to my waist. I want to know this, because if I order them, I want this same product. I can't wear below the waist pants.

All of the Gloria Vanderbilt® Amanda are classic fit, which means that it sits at your waist (as opposed to a regular fit which sits slightly lower), and it has a tapered leg opening.

I think Classic and Reguar fit are just about the same. It comes to your natural waist. I've tried Levi's (way too small) and Lee jeans, both size 12. the Lee jeans were at waist, which I must have to avoid mufin top. The Levis...had to go up to sizes to a 16 M.

The GV Amanda line is the only classic jean that actually comes up to the belly button. The "regular" jeans never fit quite as high, so just remember A for Amanda :-) I have not tried other brands since I found these. And I am not getting paid by Kohl's or the GV factory!

Depends on how you wash them. If you wash them in hot water water and dry them on high heat they WILL shrink, but if you use warm water and medium heat, they won't shrink that much and they will last for a very long time! I've had some for a couple years and they look almost brand new because I wash them very carefully.

The peron 'alittedisappointed' said they didn't like how dark the 'get reddy' red was when she got it. True, it is a darker red. Perhaps the 'fruit punch' is more of the red that she is looking for, cuz the colors are darker in person than the pictured colors online. The 'fruit punch' is pictured as an orange, but in person perhaps it' a nice bright red.....just a thought.

It's more of a scarlet. Kind of dark red - really pretty. I was at first a little disappointed that they weren't bright red, but the darker color goes with more things, and is a little less flashy. I love mine.
