The only pair of APCs I've got is a size 28 NS. I am 130lbs/60kg.

Crosswound, I'm wearing a size 28 NC and I'm 6'0 and between 130 and 135lbs.  I have these and a pair of 28 NS.  If want pictures of either/both of them on me lmk.

 

On an unrelated note: I've had my NCs for about a week and I wear them for probably an average of 8 hours a day and they have just started to soften up and break in a little.  They are a lot more comfortable now than they were when they were brand new.

You obviously have very slim hips paired with an athletic chest and broad shoulders, lucky you. wink.gif
But as I am still breaking my NS in and haven't had them hemmed to a final length I just have to see whether they fit the way I like them or not.
I had a pair of size 26 ones a year ago and they were definitely way too tight, especially in the upper block, I could barely move.

When you say tight in the thigh, how tight are we talking? Are you able to sit and bend with ease? Or are they painted on and rather painful?

And can context (if anyone knows) lower their 2 day shipment cost? It's pretty high at 35 dollars where lagarconne charges 17 and ssense charges 25 from Canada.

I'm interested in knowing the waist measurements of the new PS 26. This Vanity-TTS shift is pretty annoying to figure out.

they're still vanity sized as normal. I think if they had changed the sizing for real, we would have heard more than just context saying something by now.

hey guys, planning to purchase some new cures soon. i'm waist size 28 and have a pair of nudies with waist 28, im assuming based on what ive read here it would be ok to go with 26 in new cures?

From what I heard the ps is now tts when I called context, need supply and lagarconne. Not too happy but I'll post measurements Friday or Monday when I get the jean

from my experience nothing has changed with sizing. bought both ns and ps in the last few months, nothing different to the ones i owned a couple of years back.

Woke up, found my delivery from TBS at the door. 

 

 

Sizing 2 down was perfect for the PS, I was able to get the last button on with only a little struggle. I imagine they will stretch the most at the waist when you're sitting down, so I threw a belt on it to prevent it from getting out of control.

 

Need to get them hemmed, I am 6'0 but they are probably 1' too long for my taste.

There's a seller on here that says he had to size down 1 instead of 2 for the new NS's. 32s measure 33, 33s measure 34. Too lazy to find the post, just search the classifieds.

I think it depends on which stock you're getting...

yeah im confused too based on context clothing's site. i called customer service and they told me that its still vanity sized and had no clue what i was talking about when i told him that the size had changed on their website. gonna call them tmrw and verify everything and repost here what the response i have is going to be.

Sitting they were skin tight to the knee. Not painful really, just a bit snug. I spent too much time sittin flexing my legs and obsessing about them trying to stretch them out - then went and bought a pair of NS because I thought they wouldn't work. Then a few days later the thighs had stretched out and now they are pretty comfortable for kicking around the house.
