I already have the yellow pair and wanted extras, so when I saw the offer on these seconds, I jumped at the chance. They said they would be a little more loose round the knee area, which they are, but not to any degree that I even really notice when wearing them. I did notice they seemed tighter around the top, but have since read the suggestion to perhaps size up, as the lovely material makes them a bit more snug. They actually fit fine, it's just a pull over the hips and a tug to tuck my top in :) I just LOVE everything that I buy from HH - it's always such great quality, extremely comfortable, doesn't ride down at all and a great choice. Oh and a great service and lovely staff too! Thanks as always!
