Too Small
Too Large even higher rise pant!
There are many of us somewhat older consumers out there who aren't heavy (I'm 5'3" and 116 lbs and work-out daily), but muffin-top nonetheless. We want to think we're younger, we have disposable income, and we've been to several of the places featured in your catalogue shoots (e.g., the Greek isles, Tulum, etc.). We want to buy your clothes, but the pants, work-out tights, and more hit us at the absolute wrong spot! We don't want to have to 'tuck' when we sit.

New favorite jeans! Sizing 4 or 6
I own 4 pairs of Kara jeans from the past several years. The only issue I've had with them is keeping them up, even with the right size and a belt. They always managed to slide down and I would have to hitch up repeatedly. And then there's the muffin-top and modesty issues when bending down. This Kayla jean has solved these issues! They fit way better having a slightly higher waist. I still wear a belt as most stretchy jeans end up looser throughout the day. Sizing - I fit into both the 4 and the 6. It was a hard decision. The 4 fit perfectly but a little tight in the legs. The 6 also fit perfectly, little looser in the legs and waist and waistband little lower. I opted for the 6 in one pair, 4 in another. I'm 5'5", 126lbs, somewhat rectangular shaped (small hips, not much of a waist & some extra padding). I have both the short length and regular length and both are great.

I was so happy when these came out because I wanted so badly to love the Kara jeans like everyone else does, but the length and the low rise just didn't do it for me. So I am happy to report that I LOVE MY KAYLA JEANS!! They fit so well, they're comfortable and have good stretch to them.
HIGHLY recommend giving these babies a try if you're looking for a higher rise, with the same soft stretch denim as the Kara's.

So, acknowledging the inherent difficulties in finding the perfect fitting jean via mail order, I have to say that prAna strikes again, with the perfect fit. I have been wanting a mid-rise slim jean, and the Kayla is it! I have numerous pairs of the Kara jean, and it remains a favorite, but the Kayla meets my current criteria: mid rise, slim, not rolled at the hem, and not a super-constrictive ankle. I bought a size 0, short. (108 lbs., 5'3) and it is perfect. Now, just make this jean in a heavyweight old-school denim, and I have the jean that will last me the rest of my life! Meanwhile, the soft Kara denim will last a few years before stretching out...

The best the WORLD!
I loved the Kara jeans, but prAna stepped it up a notch with these. I cannot get enough... They're perfectly stretchy and hold their shape even on the third wear without washing. I can walk for miles in these, wear them to work, and take them out on a night of dancing and fun. The other evening, I was even doing some mild yoga with deep forward lunges, and these jeans felt just as good as my Prana Contour knickers.

In short...Thank You prAna...I've found my jean soul mate.
I'm 5'5" / 130lbs, kara size 4, and the size 4 fits perfectly.

Love the mid-rise
I have the Kara jean but have always been more comfortable in mid-rise pants. So I jumped on the Kayla when it came out. It is essentially the Kara Jean with a higher waist. The sizing is a bit surprising. According to the size chart, I should wear a 6 or 8. But size 4 fits me the best. With the stretch, anything larger than a 4 becomes too loose in the waist very quickly. For reference, I'm 5'7", 145lbs, athletically built.

Love these jeans!
Have several pairs of the Kara jean which I loved until these came out. As a 65 year old very athletic woman, the Kara was a little low waisted for my lifestyle. Love that the Kayla is a little higher and I don't have to wear a belt.
Just wish there were more color choices.

Kara, but better!
I've been wishing for a mid rise version of the kara jean, and here it is! Just as comfortable and soft (and therefore, just as subject to wearing out from thigh rubbing, hence the missing star), but no butt crack showing when I sit! Wahoo!!!

The fit depends on the color your choose
I would give these pants a 5-star rating if I only had the orange pair -- comfortable and they fit great!! However, I also have the khaki green color and the indigo. The green fits ok, but the indigo stretches and after an hour of wear I am constantly hiking them up. Also, if you are used to the Kara jean you may need to size down on these - I did.
