I bought the size 44 though I actually needed the 42. I was scared because it was my 1st time buying from this company but was desperate for a super high rise since I have a pretty large bottom and a very short waist.
They were too big but after 1 cycle in the washer on extra hot and 1 cycle on extra high heat in the dryer they now fit quite well. From now on I will only air dry them. They arrived fast to my home in Los Angeles, I love my new jeans.
