Not to confuse the issue here, but I find that for the most part, Paiges run tts for me, according to my natural waist measurement. My natural waist is a 26, and I wear a 26 in most Paige styles. I also think fit depends on your body type too.. My proportions are rather long for my height (torso and legs), and my hips are slim. Occasionally I do size up one for the skinnier styles: I recently bought a pair of Roxburys with the rose vine pockets, and I found them way too snug in my normal size. Anyway.. . I do think that Paiges should feel quite snug when you first try them on, as they will stretch a bit to conform to your shape. Also, it depends on how you like to wear your jeans--I like a snug fit. Maybe you should first try buying from an eBay seller with well listed jeans (and great feedback of course), as they will typically post measurements. Also, sometimes customer service (if it's really good) for boutique websites will give you some measurements if you call them. But you might want to try to purchase on eBay first, and figure out how Paige fits your body type, before you invest in paying full price (if you ever do.. . I try not to
). There is also a fit guide on the Paige website that might help you determine which style will best suit your body type. I think maybe the Benedict Canyons translate best for different body shapes--they have a bit more room in the hips and thighs than the Laurel Canyons. If you have a luscious tummy and/or an hourglass shape, you might want to try Hidden Hills or some of the higher rise jeans.. . Personally, I love Hollywood Hills, as they are similar in cut to the Laurel Canyons, but the rise is a bit higher. Anyway, if you are going to get them on eBay, just be sure to get advice on authenticating them from the forum before buying. Good luck!!
