This pants are so soft, and fit true to size! I wear a Women's dress size 8/10 (and am 5'7") and bought a Medium Regular Length in this pant. I plan to buy the Tall length in the future, so they'll look and feel better with my shoes of that have higher heels. These pants are mid-rise and are good for those of us who want to be modest in that area of the body. My only complain is that they attract dust, lint, hair, etc. like crazy. They do fine in my washer and dryer, but if I sit down on a fabric covered seat -they bceome covered in little fuzzies! Not pants I'll wear every day, for that reason, but otherwise, they're soft, and flattering.
