if you can't try them on irl, try purchasing from revolveclothing.com since they give free post if you buy over $100, there's heaps of coupons around and they stock a big range of j brands.

omg, you're hardly big at all. i wear a whopping 29!

I would also recommend sizing down. I regret that I didn't and now my two pairs have stretched out so much they they sag down on the butt. It's really annoying. I wish the SA at Henri Bendell had told me about it. When I tried them on first they were ok so I didn't think that they would stretch that much.

mine was 24 and stretched out a lot, too. I think that the material is on the flimsy side

Hmm...I have the gray 12" ones and the black 10". The gray ones have stretched a LOT, but the black ones still fit me perfectly even though I wear them a lot more. Generally, though, I'd agree that it might be a good idea to size down.

I think if I buy any more, I'll definitely have to try them on in a store first.

I also have the grey 12" and the 14" black ones and think that the grey pair stretched much more than the black although both got bigger. I really wish somebody at Henri Bendell (where I bought them) had told me before so that I could have sized down. The grey pair is almost unwearable.

I'm contemplating purchasing their super skinny 10" in jet black, however I was wondering, how high is the waist? Also, are they really tight around the calf area?

Thanks.

^ I just got a pair. The rise is listed as 7.5, but they feel lower. More 7". Maybe it depends on the size you get. Here's me wearing them.

It's not skin tight at the calf for me. But definitely tight on the lower leg.

are the lovestory 22" the same as the bell 22"? revolve clothing has them listed separately and it IS confusing!

there's a slight difference.

Loverstory
• 33" Inseam
• 7.5" Rise
• 15" in the knee breaks to 22" at the leg opening

Bell
• 34" Inseam
• 8" Rise
• 14" in the knee breaks to 22" at the leg opening

They are HUGE! I can only fit into their 23's, which are very hard to find but once in a while I can get them at Ron Herman.

If they fit you perfectly you should probably size down because they do stretch a lot.
