serendipity, i think it depends on your body type, like clutch says. I know the first time,I sized up to 27 and though they fit at first, they stretched and got a 26 instead. those were snug, but I wiggled in and now they fit so perfect.
I personally don't like when it's loose in any area. I am more of a small pear too and I think because my waist is smaller is why the smaller worked for me.
i think it depends on the style and how you like them to fit.
also, like clutch said, body shape.
I think if you have a smaller waist compared to hips, it's true to size?
let us know what style.
for the shorts, for sure, true to size or even bigger if you like it baggy.
I have a pair of camillas in size 29- and in 26 and I am normally a 26.
i got the 25's in jet--they fit great, and i'm usually a 24. a tad loose around the hips but i really think the 24 would have been too small and painful to squeeze into. plus if i wash them and dry them, i think they will shrink and fit just right.
I love the look of siwys and have wanted to get some for a long time now... right now I'm looking at the Arden shorts (so cute!), the cropped Hannahs and the Rose drainpipes. I especially love these ones on Sienna Miller
I'm not sure what size I should get, though. I'm 5'9.5'' and a size 2, sometimes a 4... so like a 26-27... I have a slim waist with a bigger butt... a small pear. I plugged my measurements into truejeans, which is like this online denim finder thing and for the Kat style, the only Siwy jean they had, they said I should order a 26. But Kat is a bootcut and looser than the Hannah or the Rose... so should I get a 27 in the styles I want?
I think you should get a size 27.
My best friend is a 27 and she is 5-8
A lot of people think she would be a smaller size, but because she is so tall, I think her hip bones, are just slightly pushed out more.
What wash are you going to get?
I'm due for a new pair and going to get the new styles on shopbop.com
Either Tie Dye or the Dark Gray one's they have.
Which should I get. I already have, rain, black, wonder, etc.
OH and please anyone, if you find the black sequins one by siwy, please let me know where to get them on line. A store I preordered on totally sold my pair to someone else and Im so beyond pissed, because I emailed siwy and they are totally sold out! Argh!
Thanks for the help. Yah, I have the same shape as your friend, I look very thin but I'm tall and have slightly wider hips so I ordered a size 27. I got the exact pair Sienna is wearing in the picture, the purity wash.
