I have the CE stilletto in 27 and it's stretched out too much in the legs and waist. so I sized down to 26 with this one and it fits great. It's super comfortable and as always the C/E waistband is amazing and will never give you a muffin top.. The print is subtle and very wearable and the fabric is extremely soft. It needs to be hemmed a couple inches bc I'm only 5'3 but overall these jeans are a win.
