I'm 5'7, which is not that tall, but usually like my trousers in a 32 inseam, but sometimes, 30 is ok. With these, they only reach my ankle, which will complicated a bit the type of shoes to wear (like sneakers without socks will be ok, or would be a sockettes and a slim sneakers, or sport sandals). Very light material, so would be great for summer, but won't be good for hiking, as the material is way too thin, and the pants are too short (ticks could get in there). Found the sizing accurate. I am pear-shaped (post-partum body) and the cut is flattering on bigger bottom, and the waist band is very confortable (after a baby, do you have a bit of extra skin on your belly, and no muffin top with those trousers!).
