This time I'm asking about how bloomers fit..

I bought these bloomers off the comms but I'm abit confused about bloomer sizing. Basically I didn't check the sellers post properly so I got the size too big than I normally would if getting any other clothes. I was thinking about reselling them and rebuying new ones because I think they're a little big around the leg/bum for me, but I don't know how tight or loose bloomers are meant to be around the legs and the bum, and I imagine that if I got a lower size than the 12 I got it would fit better. Also doesn't help that when I try to recreate the same effect with the main stock photo, there's too much extra fabric. BUT If I was going to buy some brand new ones from their site (doubt I would find another pair on comms XD), I wouldn't know if it would be worth ordering the size 8 because my waist is 57.5cm, so wouldn't the waistband be really uncomfortable? I guess it may because I'm new to wearing waistbands but I found it felt weird when wearing the minimum of 56cm. o_o

Basically what I'm asking is, how are lolita bloomers meant to look around the legs? Like tight shorts or slightly less? Baggy? Really baggy? And also how do you make waistbands uncomfortable? When you're right near the minimum or when you stretch it a little more? I sound so stupid asking this. D:  (Btw I was trying out the bloomers around the waist area)

Thanks for your help. :D (Example pics may help me here ._.)
