Thanks to the previous review, I ordered an extra large for myself (I have a 25" waist and don't like my clothes terribly tight# and an extra small for my nine year old. They both fit perfectly! These are super cute and long enough to scrunch or pulll over the heel of your ballroom shoes # although I am nly 5'5"#. I get tons of compliments everytime I wear them, and they are very soft. Only two little sparkles have fallen off in the past 4 wearings, which isn't terrible for this type of item.
I was very disappointed when I got these today. I ordered a medium because the size chart said that a medium would be about a 28. I have several pairs of pants in a 27 and one of them is just a little snug so I got the 28 medium. I can barely button them. They fit alright in my legs because of the stretch but I wish I would have ordered the XL for the waist. Compared to my size 4/27 they are about 4 inches smaller in the waist. Unfortunately because they are a closeout I cannot exchange them. They would be cute otherwise. Very sad.
