Hello dear Fab’ers! I bought two pair of NYDJ jeggings on a huge sale: $44 a pair! I’ve never tried the brand before and I have a dilemma. I sized down as stated on the website and ordered a size 16. I love how they fit my curves. But I think they’re maybe too snug. See photos.

You can see a very weird lower stomach roll/pooch. I have some lower tummy, but my stomach never looks like this even in leggings. I think it’s the jeans. I bought them in black and blue denim and they both do the strange stomach compression roll. Overall, I feel pretty compressed in them, though the elastic waist makes breathing easy.

I’m worried to size up as I’ve been working to lose some weight. I’m also worried the jeans will loosen up with wear and be sloppy. But I love the style! Very 50s/early 60s.

Is it worth trying size 18?
Send them back?
Keep current size and wear them?

What do you think?
