I love Paige jeans. for some reason these don't give like their others. Probably the coating. I have found after trying on several different brands in coated jeans that they just behave differently. I ordered these in a size 25 , my usual size, they, fit, buttoned up too but I had to work really hard to get them up. They just clung to my legs. I also noticed lots of lines on the back of my legs which is a pet peeve of mine. Hate that look.
