After lurking for a while I decided to get some petit standards sized down around 3-4 sizes. Need opinions on them, though I've only got the one photo, for now.
They're a 27, and my true waist is 30.5-31 inches. I've had no trouble buttoning them up particularly, but they're quite tight around the thigh and calves. Will they loosen up enough, and look less like girl jeans or should I get a 27/26 New standards instead?
