Cigarette Pants vs. Capri Pants Sizing/Fit/Stretch/Everything? Help!

Hi all, 

okay, tons of questions about the cigarette pants/deadly dames capri pants 

I want both but I'm not sure I can get them because of the measurements, the XS say that the legs are minimum 19" at the top of the thigh. Do any of you lovely ladies know if they go smaller around the thigh?? (as in 2 inches smaller?) I have a terrible time finding pants that fit LOL, 

If not, do any of you know an awesome alternative or older version that might be a bit smaller (I need 23.5-33.5-17) so if you have a pair that came smaller than measured, know that they will fit smaller/shrunk any in the wash or whatever I would be super happy to buy them from you hopefully in black <3

On the fit, I've read from the reviews that the capris fit a bit better than the cigarette,. is this true? 

Finally, stretch twill denim vs. stretch bengaline?

Ok, I can help you with stretch twill denim vs. stretch bengaline question.  The stretch bengaline, I believe, is a better fit simply because of the amount of stretch that the material provides.  You are able to successfully do any and all bending, stretching, and movement in general.  The bengaline is extremely flattering as well.  Now, the stretch twill denim is not as stretchy and is heavier, in my opinion. You can definitely tell the differences between the two materials. For me, the bengaline is better because it has much more give to it. I hope this explanation is helpful for you. ;o)
