I'm 5'3, 100lbs. Was worried that the pants would be too long but the XS is the perfect length with my Dansko clogs. The rise also works for me, coming up right at the waist. The fit is very loose, but that's how I prefer it. The combination of elastic back and drawstring front makes a small but noticeable difference in comfort level compared to drawstring alone. Can't say much on wear since I've only had them less than a month, but no fading so far after a couple of washings on cold. As for pricing, hard to beat less than $10 a pop on sale.
