I originally purchased these jeans in a petite. They fit well, but a little short for the winter. Regardless, my daughter liked them so I didn't send them back. I reordered the same pants in the regular length and they are a little longer than expected, but again, she liked them and they fit the need for a longer pant during the cold winter that is expected, so we kept them. Sheesh! Isn't there something in-between. Oh well, my daughter is happy, so I guess I am too.
