I think these run a full 1.5 size small. I have many J brand jeans in a 26 and can barely get in to the 27. For me they are too tight in the thigh area - hope that with wear it will get better. If you have athletic thighs size up 2 sizes - if you have thinner legs just size up one size.
These pants are so wonky in sizing, I can't deal. They definitely fit about a size and a half small. Other gripes? Teh waistband is really narrow (unfortunate when it could be exposed in a sharp change of silhouette from the skinny-jeans-and-giant-top look) and the crotch fits strangely (its neither too saggy, nor too tight, nor in an appropriate mid-way position). That being said, the back is extremely flatteringdue to the higher-than-usual placement of pockets. I'm a very proportionally-figured person, and on me the flare was much more obvious than as its pictured on the site. Also, the "Doll" I think is made for someone with a more mature, classic style than mineI bought these pants before the big comeback of the highwaist jean and it took a lot of doing to make them look sufficiently edgy. And heels are extremely necessaryI'm 5'5" and in 4.5" wedges there was still 1-2" extra......
I love this jean! It honestly makes me look so long and lean; and really compliments my butt as well! I normally wear a 27 or 28 in J Brand, in these jeans I had to size up to a 29 because the 28 was so incredibly tiny. The 29 in the Doll was a little big at first but then I shrunk it and they are so perfect! I love them! everyone should own a pair. I high pockets on the rear are very complimenting also.
