Very snug!
These run surprisingly tight. I'm usually a 25 or 26 in Paige. I purchased a 26 as I prefer lighter wash jeans slightly less tight. However, they're VERY tight-fitting all the way down, even on the calf (and I have very small calves). Very flattering and comfortable because there's lots of stretch, but if you're looking for a bit more of a relaxed fit like I was, I'd advise sizing up. I'm going to purchase the 27 (the only pair of 27s I've ever had!).

A Tight Squeeze!
Who said these run large?! They're TINY! I ordered my usual 25 and as soon as I took them out of the packaging, I knew it would be a struggle to get into them. Eventually, I did, with a muffin top to prove it. They're VERY tight on the hips/butt area (and believe me, I have NO hips and a flat butt!). In other words, they completely squashed any hint of a butt....... They're adequately roomy on the thighs though, even for my 'womanly' ones. I have to say that apart from the tight fit, they're gorgeous - the quality, the lovely rich brown colour and the leather-effect coating is super-soft. The length is just right. I have long legs for my average height of 5' 7", and they fall perfectly. I'm going to return them and try the 26.

Agree with first reviewer!
I agree totally with the first reviewer - I'm of similar proportions - 5' 7" and US size 4/UK 8. The dress (Size S) did nothing for me except highlight my bad points - flat bottom and boyish hips. There was NO room in the bust area at all. I have several similar style maxi dresses (mostly by VELVET) that have the opposite effect completely - make me feel great about my figure (the curvy bits - bust - and the lack of curvy bits - as above!). Needless to say, this dress will be returned for a refund.
