Do treggings tend to size the same as leggings?

I'm online shopping at Dorothy Perkins. Was in the shop the other day and in leggings I take a size 14 but in skinny jeans took an 18 shock although the waist gaps hugely and requires a belt, I couldnt quite do the button up on the 16's. So online, I'm looking at the reduced stuff and there are some grey treggings and I dont know if I should try a 16 or 14 or what?

I'm terrified they wont fit and I hate returns so much. I know that's the hassle of online shopping so I am silly to moan.

i've got a pair of dp leggings which i ordered to get free postage. they are flappy and i left it too late to return them.

yeah my 14s feel roomy but my 18 skinny jeans feel they fit on the legs but gap at the waist. Very confusing!

I have jeggings from Tesco in size ten, they are huge on the waist, but v skinny on the calf. I think they are way more generous than a pair of skinny jeans - my round about way of saying get the 14 - dp pretty generously cut too, imo.
