Firstly, i'll say that these run 2 sizes larger than the label. I usually wear a 10 on bottom, though this usually translates to a S in Killstar, so I ordered the S and M. The mediums were huge, at least a size uk14 I would say. The small were still too large, at least a UK 12. I had to place another order for the XS, hoping these would fit. They were perfect! Certainly not a 6 by any stretch of the imagination! I would say the XS is a size 10. I was pleasantly surprised by the fit (shape) of these trousers. I have an hourglass figure with a slightly short wide waist (though still proportionately narrow if that makes sense). Having a slim waist and a shapely bum, I find 99% of trousers and jeans gape at the back and dig in on the tummy. This is not solved by a belt, so it is incredibly difficult to find bottoms that fit and I am usually restricted to leggings only. These trousers actually don't gape at the back or dig in at the front, but fit my shape like a glove! An absolute 1 in a million find for me! Perhaps due to the stretchy material, but even then I've tried other trousers in the past that are stretchy that have still had the same issue! Wonderful find! The only minor gripe is that they slip down a little on my waist rather than sitting at the point I would like them too (I guess even the XS still has a little bit of room!), which then creates a slight bit of bulging lower down - something I am very fussy and self-concious about. For me, it just means I will stick to tops I can tuck in rather than sporting a cropped top. The Killstar Xara Keyhole top works very well tucked in to these trousers. The Restyle Goddess jacket also looks killer worn over the top. The jacket splits open just over the skull zip pull on the trousers, showing it off nicely. The combo makes a very nice smart, corp-goth look! The trousers are described as "capri". I take capri to mean that they are cropped at the calf. I find these go down to just above the ankle bone. They kinda look like they're just a bit too short for me rather than capri length haha, but I am 5'4" with short legs - absolutely everything is too long for me. I usually have a gathering of excess material at the bottom of my leg. As finding trousers that actually fit me is darn near impossible, I don't mind that these are a tad short (or long for capris!) on me. This will be hidden by boots! As you have the nice zip pull and ring details, these trousers are best worn with crop tops, tops that can be tucked in or bodysuits. Note that there is not material to cover the back of the zip on the inside, so you may be more comfortable with tops tucked in rather than something cropped to avoid any scratchiness from the back of the zip - I did notice a bit of discomfort from the zip when trying them on. This seems like a strange oversight. I haven't worn these yet, just tried them on, so I can't comment on how they hold up after washing etc, but I wanted to write a review so that others could find out about the sizing and know to order 2 sizes smaller than your standard trouser size. So far they seem like they will be comfortable to wear and the zip seems like it will stay in place even though there is no button above it.
