I thought it was a mistake when I saw that the model was supposedly wearing a size 28. However, I am normally a size 25 in CoH and decided to order a 27 to be safe. Too small! This is very much a high-waisted style and fit too snugly for my taste. And with the zip fly and button front, which all must be undone to take it off, it is very inconvenient. I wanted a more relaxed, casual lookI don't really know who's in the market for a body-conscious shortall.
