I tried on the 32 and they were very loose. My guess would be that I should get a 29 with it, especially if it will stretch out. I found Mauro's thread and might order the SJDJ. How much do they stretch in width? Also, how much would the length shrink after the first wash.
if a 31 in nudies were tight. thats the size you should go with, which would make you a size 30 in NS.

you don't have to wait 6 months. just wash or soak them when they are dirty. don't know how well those will fade. it depends on how often/hard you wear them before they start to soften up

you would probably need a size 32 in the bsp's. and honestly you might not even need to hem them. i would see what they look lie after an initial really hot soak. you have some really long legs
