Some fun things I noticed: The pants come with a side zip, which I imagine would be costly to alter (if needed). There is a hot-pink piping along the inside of the waistband, which the girly side of me loved. The material is quite stretchy, but I wonder if it will have the same stretched-out problem after a few hours of wear similar to Gap's premium pants.
The regular size felt big all around. There's not much I need to say about it -- pictures are worth a thousand words.
The petite inseam is about 2" shorter, but the fit is noticeably tighter everywhere else. I look like I'm wearing cropped leggings heading off to yoga class! Not attractive to say the least. The waist is the roomiest, but even that is probably doable. I briefly considered getting tall booties so I can wear them with these pants a la BEE @ Atlantic-Pacific (seriously love her style, one of my favorite style bloggers ever), but I don't think I can pull it off.
I think the perfect fit would be somewhere in between these two sizes, both in length and overall fit. What are your thoughts? Have you tried on these pants?
