If you have hips, unlike a 14 yr old girl, you'll appreciate these jeans. Not everyone can wear the low rise, show your backside, ultra skinny jeans when they ride. I like having extra coverage in the back and the over the boot design on these. They run slightly tight though. If you're on the cusp of a 12-14, go with the 14. I have a 35" inseam and these longs are great!
