Now, this specific item is probably best for an average height and and some curves too. I got Size 28 which is what I normally buy and expected AU size 8. But the jeans were way too big, so Iâ??d say definitely get one or even 2 sizes smaller, as the jeans do have stretch in them as well.Im 5â??9 and the jeans were a bit too short. I know they are â??ankle: cut but they didn't reach my ankles. Anyway - very nice pattern and color, the bum pockets a big too big. Deffinetely probably not for tall and skinny girl. Im a but upset cos I would love for them to sit better on me. returning now, hope for better luck next time.
