they are 100% cotton, yeah.  they stretch about a size, sometimes more if they're really tight.
it depends on how much you plan to grow.  I was a true 29 when I first got my diors and I ordered a 27.  wish I ordered a 28, because they were really snug when I first got them, and I have since gained weight and had to sell them.  supposedly the nostalgy (mii) stretches more than the brut (mij), but that shouldn't really affect your sizing choice. honestly, if I was you, I would order the 27.  that way they'll be comfortable right when you get them, they'll stretch a little but not too much, and you'll have room if you end up gaining weight, etc.  you could always exchange if you really needed to, but in my experience I found that sizing down 2 (a 26 for you) ends up being too tight, and you don't have much room for growth, if any.
hope this helped.

Thank you so much for your reply nick! Just like to ask, do you wear your jeans skin tight or slim fit? My jeans are all skin tight fit and i usually size down so that it would stretch out to my actual and still stay skin tight. I've also heard that Diors run 2 sizes bigger than the actual waist size, is this true? I just got the exact measurements from LVR for the size 27 and it seems much bigger from waist down to the hem compared to my current pairs of nudies. Its weird that they couldn't provide me with the measurements for size 26 but stated it is about 1-2 cm difference between sizes. Even if i minus the 1 - 2 cm it still is bigger than my current nudies. May be i should get the 26? Geez im stuck in this dilemma, if only i could try them out.

I prefer mine to be a slim fit. if you're looking for a skin tight fit, a 26 would be better, then. honestly though, 19cm diors aren't really skin-tight. when mine were at their tightest, they were skin-tight in the thighs, but I still had plenty of room in the calf area. the waist was also very uncomfortable. like I said, LVR offers exchanges as long as the tags are still attached, so if you don't like the fit you can always return them. and diors run 2 sizes bigger in the waist because they are a low rise and meant to be worn around the hips, which are generally around 2 sizes bigger than the true waist.

tl;dr: if you want more of a skin-tight fit, go for the 26 and hope the waist fits. the jeans will be tight in the thighs and a bit looser in the calves, and may be too tight in the waist depending. a 27 would be a more slim-tapered fit.

Worn ~2months, ~32 inseam, never soaked/washed
I'm 5'8" so the length is fine for me.

I bought it a few hours ago, and wearing them now.
Fit's well at waist (size down 2), but thighs are a tad tight. Hoping they'll stretch slightly.

Only complaint is that they were hemmed. Won't have that classic Dior silhouette with insane stacking, but thats ok.

glad they fit well at the waist. the thighs will stretch a bit, but if they're snug now they won't by any means be loose. and even without the stacking I'm sure they look good. nice come up.

^^ I don't see any problems with those. back pocket pleat is usually a good indicator and that looks legit. dior tag too, and that looks fine. would help if there was a pic of the was tag/size tag, but so far they look legit.

Lookin pretty legit to me. Word to the back pocket stitching, leather dior tag inside & other misc details.

Thanks man, yes this definitely helped.. But what about the 17.5cm I was recently informed that  those were the "skinny fit" and hat the 19cm was the "slim fit".. Does that sizing method apply with the 17.5cm also? Sizing down 2 sizes because of stretching?
the 17.5cm cut is a skinnier cut, yes.  they don't come in raw form; they always have a bit of stretch material.  you're going to want to size down one less than you would for the 19cm cut.  so if you were going to get a 30 in the 19cm cut, a 31 in the 17.5cm cut should be a good fit.  I personally have never tried on a pair, but this is the general consensus.
17.5cm's DO come in raw form. I own a pair of MIJ 17.5cm raws which I purchased at the Beverly Hills DH boutique.

^^ are they 100% cotton? I've always read 17.5cm "raws" are something like 97% cotton 3% elastic. but I could be wrong, if I am, my bad.

Yupp. 100% cotton, MIJ. 
I've had this pari for well over a year too. They're pretty beat up lol.
I'll have to get some photos up.

These look pretty legit, but would have to be a few years old to feature that style of clasp. I know the Hedi-era denim all featured that style clasp... Anything newer (that still has the clasp; I know KVA used buttons too) has a DH-branded clasp. They look legit though... I've def seen this wash before. You can also tell by the type of leather used on the Dior tag. Soft, pliable indicates authentic... While stiff shiny "plastic-y" usually indicates fake. Also take a look in the pockets for an ID number (on older Hedi-era releases). Any newer release will the updated interior tag, which is like 2, 3.5" x 1.5" "shiny" fabric tags, layered on top of each other, with sizing, serial code, and care information.

out of curiosity why MII? i personally find the MIJ cuts much better
Aug 15, 2013 @ 00:58
^^ 
had a pair of MIJ before, wouldn't mind something with a little less taper/smaller back pockets/bit more stretch if I can spend a bit less.
