Bought these for my wife. These size wise definitely fit differently then the other pant styles. she loves the stretch - but Have tried 3 different sizes and just can't get it right. The 14 and 12 were to large in waist - third exchange was for a 10. The 10 fits at the waist- but is oddly tight on lower leg area where the waterproof material is - Also the 32" is to long for sure - was hoping she could hem them but not possible with the ventilation zipper. If these were offered in petite or short sizes I think everything would fit better overall.
Thankful for the easy exchange and return process . will return this last pair for something completely different or a store credit. Not sure yet.
If my wife were a bit taller (she is 5'3") I think all would settle into place.
