I sized up 2 sizes for these jeans, mostly because I had read that they fit a bit small and they were on sale so I couldn't resist! Turns out that they are a bit loose in the waist, but they still fit well. Hopefully they don't stretch out in the waist with time. I like that they aren't necessarily super-tight - the extra size up gives them a bit of a low-slung 70s look. The leg is extremely flattering and quite long, I have a 33" inseam and if I don't hem these, I will likely wear them with heels. This brand is also incredibly flattering in the butt. I have a teeny tiny flat backside, but these jeans make my butt look like it has some curves! Definitely recommend them, would size up one for a perfect fit.
