Maybe some of the ladies who loved the 80s will have insight here... I ordered a couple of 100% cotton jeans off Yoox. My size up fits perfectly out of the box, but I know my cotton TRs softened and stretched with time.

My regular size was a struggle to get on. I used a spray bottle of water to soften them up a bit, and now they button. Still not super comfy for sitting, but my inclination is to go with these so they stay a skinny jean as they soften up... don't need another BF pair.

Am I on the right track here?

ETA: photos. 1 is size 27, 2 is size 28.

I'm pretty sure I'm keeping one of them. Super in love with the wash and the 100% cotton and the fit. The 27s relaxed significantly just sitting here. DH said they look the same.
