Got these in the black, and ordered a large, even though I usually wear about a size 4-6. I'm glad that I did, as they are perfectly snug like leggings should be, and although the waist seemed a tiny bit on the big side, it snugged up just right when I tied the drawstring. They are darling and sexy at the same time!!! A must-have for wearing underneath skirts or tunics this winter!!
