This is my 1st pair of Siwy Jeans and I have to decide between 26 and 27 . I am usually a 27 on designer denim but from my experience with Siwy shorts (that runs 1/2 half big) and reading comments from other Hannah buyers, I took the chance and ordered 26. I was quite worried when I first unwrapped it as it looks relatively small. Thanks to the stretchy material, the fit was snug and perfect. - the wrinkles at the folds were ironed out and it has a legging like fit. However, if you like some room and don't mind the folds behind the kness and crotch area, go for your regular size. Having chosen 1 size down, it ends slightly above my ankle on my 1.73m frame but I don't mind it this way. Color is cheerful for spring and warmer weather. Like it as alternative to ususal indigo denim.
