Based on reading reviews online I got one size down. I am glad I did since at first it is a bit snug but after couple hours it stretches and becomes very comfortable and fit perfectly. The back pockets look a bit long on my hip though...visually takes up some leg length since I am only 5 feet 3. ??
I am obsessed with the Hudson Nico and own them in several different colors. Although I absolutely LOVE the clean, dark wash of the Chelsea, I found they stretch out far more than my other Nicos. Sadly, these will need to be returned. I highly recommend sizing down a size for these!
Super soft although it looks structured. Wash is gorgeous! With a slight sheen to it. I was initially reluctant to buy these as the rise seemed a bit too high at 9" for my short-waisted 5'3" self buuuuut after reading reviews online, I had to give it a shot and I am happy to say that I am NOT at all disappointed! Love them! I did size down though, I have Collins in size 28 so I got these in size 27. It fit beautifully! Can't wait to wear them out!
