To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I'm a size 8 and a medium most of the time, and the medium fits in these. However, I needed the petite length, and as with many other pants the petite runs a little smaller all around versus the regular length (which I find a bit annoying... 5'5" isn't terribly short and a medium should stay a medium just with a shorter inseam). That said, the petite inseam is right on (likely around a 30' since that normally works for me in flats), and the pants are very comfortable. The fit is flattering, but I wish it offered a little more thigh room. The material is thin and works well in warm/humid climates, but as other reviewers mentioned, they don't feel rugged. So far so good, I liked them enough to keep them.
I technically can wear the small (5’4”, 126lbs., size 4/6), but have enjoyed having a medium - they are comfortably loose (though need to be tied at waist), without looking to baggy in the legs because of the flattering way the legs are stitched on the sides. There is a drawstring on the bottom that lets you since them in to turn them into capris or to keep bugs from getting in during a hike. Very similar to pants I bought at Lululemon, though much cheaper and made just as well. These are my go-to pants for summer or vacation: especially flying.
Is it possible to be in love with a pair of pants? They fit perfectly, they’re super flattering even with my bodacious curves that a lot of brands don’t sit well on, they’re incredibly comfortable, they breathe, they dry quickly, they are very lightweight, they travel very well, and the pockets are a game changer.
