I'm 5ft3 with waist 28" hip 38". Bought size Small (usually wears size 8-10) - it was waist and hip hugging but wouldn't recommend to buy these leggings in 28inches. Falls below the bony bump on the outside of my ankle with loose fabric gathered at the bottom. The high-waisted waistband covers above my belly button. Sweat proof but didn't like the swimsuit material, gives a sheen to the leggings.
