These are great pants. The regulars actually run a little longer than most and are the perfect length for me at 5'6 1/2. Most of the time regular length is an inch too short. Plus the material is light and stretchy and feel like yoga pants or performance material. Also, the size fits bigger than the stated size chart. I have 39 inch hips and the mediums are almost too big, but beware, you will want these a little baggy if your rear is not in great shape. The material will show cellulite if it's a problem and you try to wear the pants too tight.
