I am usually a small in everything, and these bottoms were too small for me. I'll probably need to alter them myself and add maybe some ties or something to the sides since there doesn't appear to be any mediums left anymore. Just something to note when you're buying the bottoms, definitely size up. Also the "gold" is a not as yellow-gold as it looks in the pictures, it's more of a pale gold. so if you're very pale it might look kind of strange on you. The color would probably look better on darker skin tones.
