River Island Etta high-waisted skinny jeans

has anyone had these? I've just bought 2 pairs, 12 and 14, and can't decide between the two. The 14 is much more comfy around the waist but the legs are a bit baggy, and after wandering around my bedroom in them for 10 minutes yesterday, I felt that the bum was sagging a bit and I would definitely need a belt (which is fine).

The 12 were nice and fitted round the bum and legs but absolutely clamped my tummy in (which is larger than it should be, that's for sure) which gave me a nice flat tummy but were really pretty tight.

My question is - are these jeans that stretch after a couple of wears? I feel kind of loathe to go for the 14 (these are not super-skinny jeans, whatever RI call them) which really do look a bit baggy, but don't want to subject myself to hours of torture in the 12.

Sigh. I am always between sizes, it's getting a bit old.
