I like the high waist....mid rise or curvy fit do not fit me well. I ordered my regular size 18....I find the crotch area is loose...I feel I need to keep pulling them up. A size 16 I think would be too small. I'm used to skinny jeans and jeggings...I might just need to get used to this fit. Worth the sale price...would not pay full price for them though. I find the colour as shown on website.
