I ordered the size 6, which is my normal size in pants. I found they were a bit tight, I guess it is recommended that you order a size up. I liked the style of the pant and the fit was good. Why I sent them back and did not exchange them for the next size, is because they were a bit too constructive for my taste. The fabric is stretchy but still holds you in firmly. That is a good thing, but can also feel restrictive. The biggest issue I had was down in the calf area, my calves are skinny and the fabric was very tight here's much so that you would have to manually pull them down every time you sit down and then stand up. It would be great to have pants that are form fitting but also hang down the leg so you don't have to shimmy the legs down when you stand up. For this reason I am not recommending them.
