    Yep, sizing down was good. APC stretches like crazy. They start of tight as a mo-fo and later end up being too loose IME.

    I think that they fit fine.

    The back looks great but the front duz appear to have a little extra room, so I see your point. Taking the strech factor into consideration, I would perhaps size down 1. But I really think that they look ok as they are. Good luck with that.

    Curious how tight rescues should fit around the waist (when you first get them). I ordered a pair, and while the legs were somewhat tight, the waist was close to where I would eventually want it. Do I need to size down one of two sizes? Do the legs get slimmer as I do so?

    Fit looks good right now. How long have you worn them? Ive had 2 pairs of rescues in different sizes and found that they end up 4-5" larger than tagged size after stretching. (My 34s measure 38-39 right now).

    4 - 5" larger?! That's wild. I have been wearing my NS for 6 months now and I can't say they stretched more than 2 inches at most. Although, admittedly I have yet to actually take any measurements of my own.

    Thats from tagged size. They are already about 2 inches larger than tagged right off the bat.

    Ahhh, makes sense then.
