There wasn't any prior reviews when I ordered this and I had to rely solely on the pictures and description for my purchase. I was expecting a pair of distressed denim jeans but this is clearly a thin, cottony dress pants with clever distressing. I'm always 27 in CE and ordered 27 in this. It looks tiny when I first took it out of the bag but it very stretchy and will soon mould very nicely to fit your form. It is also not as shimmery and reflective as what the picture showed, which is good, because then it gives you the unique look without being loud or in your face. I would have returned it if not for the discount given to justify this buy, as otherwise, it is fairly expensive for its thin material. I so wish this is denim.
