I spent hours researching wellies and then welly sizing so I actually ended up buying these at a local retailer because I was so overloaded with contradicting information. Some people said buy a size up, others didn't but then others said if you wanted to wear welly warmers to size up as well!! aaggghhhhh!
So, I am a size 5 and I wanted to wear welly warmers with my wellies. And a size 5 hunter welly fits perfectly with welly warmers!!
When looking online I was also not sure about adjustable, original or huntress style. I was able to try all of these. I am a size 8 dress size and I don't have huge calfs but the reveiews suggested the original style were really slim, they are. Original style hunters would be perfect with leggings but if you want to tuck jeans in would be a bit snug. On the other side though, the huntress wellies, which are wider, would've been fine for tucking in jeans but with leggings looked abit big. This is why I opted for adjustable, best of both worlds, which I suppose is the point!
I was worried about the length of the wellies, I am 5ft 3 and concerned they would come over my knees almost, but the adjustable hunters are quite comfortable in length.
I also love the aubergine colour, which the photo portrays quite accurately. I have couple them with Snow Leopard hunter welly socks which i have to say looks pretty awesome!
I hope this helps.
