I got these in a 26, which is what I normally wear. They are a little longer, but I thought it looked slimming and the overall cut was great. Unfortunately, I had to return these. While the waistband was accurate, the thighs were WAY too tight. I am pretty athletic and have toned legs, but these jeans weren't made for people with quadriceps! Too bad, they are super cute and I am bummed I had to send them back.
