Can anyone tell me if Paige Melrose in Midnight Rocker runs large, small or TTS?

I have heard that many Paige cuts run small, and so have searched for a size up. However, I've learned to shop by measurements, and look for a 27"- 28" waistband, and a 7" rise in any size from 23 to 26. I'm frustrated by Paiges though, since the measurements of most 24's seem too small, and on the 25's, too large. I can't squash into a 26" waist, and a 29" waist will fall off. I'm petite, slender and have no booty.

I found a pair I want in size 24, and the measurements are perfect; but I'm worried that there is some other feature that is going to mean they'll be too small for me. I don't live near a B&M store that sells Paiges, so I can't try them on. Please help!

Hmm though I don't own any midnight rockers, I have tried them on. I'm slim and slender and have no butt either. I tried Laurel Canyons in midnight rocker in 24 and they were tight! I could easily size up. I'm not sure if the Melroses fit different in midnight rocker, sorry but keep in mind that they're straight leg.

Thank you both so much! Based on your remarks, I decided to go with a size 25, altho for some reason the waist on the 25's is listed as smaller than the waist on the 24's (27" vs. 28"). I know I'm not as tiny as you, Dojoqueen, and I remember reading that Paige 24's usually fit you well, so they would probably be too tight on me. Too-tight straight jeans = :rant

I love these and surely hope they fit me! I'm kind of a sucker for blingy pockets and these have the medallion pocket.

^You'll love them. Those are one of my favorites. :) They run a little small, but I think a lot of it depends on the size of one's hips since the rise is low (mine are a hair under 6.5").

Midnight Rocker also has a lot of recovery so you don't get saggy butt when you are wearing them. I think it has the most recovery of any Paige wash. Mine are slightly tight when I put them on, they stretch out perfect and they shrink right back up when I sit down to pee :jumping No other Paige wash recovers quite that quickly.

They're here, they're here! And they fit perfectly and are super comfy. I went by measurements rather than size and I did all right. Now I want more! If these are considered to run small, I'm wondering if I should size down on the next ones? Probably will just go by measurements since that seems to work.

I'll post pix after I fix the hem, needs to be 32" not 35" unfortunately.
