For reference I am 5.2 ft, 175 lb, 38 c, with broad shoulder and short torso. Most of my weight is in lower half of my body.z I normally wear xl in Reitmans shirt and dress and 14 petite in pants and large in shorts. Got xl on clearance. It is very flattering and the length comes to mid thigh which I appreciate since the other ones I have from Another brand was pretty short. There is room for my thigh. I also love the colour and cargo pockets. For a fitted look I suggest sizing down. I don't mind the looseness since it is easier to pull off to go to the bathroom. The cinched waist is flattering.
