Rated4out of5bykasualfromRun big and stretch out with wearI'm 5'2" 122 lbs., normally wear a size 27-28 or 5/6, after trying on several sizes I ended up buying these in a size 4 for a casually form fitting fit. Within an hour of wear they were sagging off of me and no longer formfitting. I had to exchange them for a size 2 which were a tad bit too snug when I tried them on but once they stretch out (which happens very quickly with these particular pants) the size 2 becomes my perfect size.
Basically I had to drop down 2 sizes in these pants compared to my normal size.

Rated5out of5byhappymommyfromLove these flattering cords!!I love these cords for working or going out. They have a flattering, feminine fit. Size seemed normal to me - I'm 5'4" and 115 lbs, with an athletic build and size 2 fits perfectly. Keep eyeing the blue pair!

Rated4out of5bysoleildouxfromon my 2nd pair, & ordering a 3rd!I love these cords so much that after I wore a whole in my first pair and then ripped the crotch, I immediately ordered a replacement, in the exact same color. I've used them extensively on long camping/climbing trips and love to say I've had them on for days at a time, even sleeping in them, and they are totally comfortable. I've done long multi-pitch days in them and found them to be great. The only issue I've had is the material wore down really quickly and ended up ripping, less than a year after purchase. I got them on sale so didn't mind but if you reserve them for casual days at the cafe or work days in the office, they will last a LOT longer. Also, some stats: I'm 5'7" and 135; fit with a bit of latin curve and I found they run big. I usually wear 6 or 8 (10 in TNF) and got these in a 4. The length is perfect. I don't have any gapping issues that others have mentioned but I prefer to wear a belt with them if I'm not wearing my harness because of all the stretch.

Rated5out of5byGeology NadinefromYou can't be sneaky in theseTo be fair with the "fits too long" ranking, I am very short, and have even shorter than normal legs. After getting these hemmed though, I'm very happy with them. They are fairly noisy, as any cords would be, I assume, but other than that, I have no complaints. They are extremely comfortable and have fair sized pockets for women's pants.

Rated5out of5byDMatsufromNice cords!I had been eyeing these for ages in the Prana catalog, and when I found a pair--in MY SIZE--on the sale rack at REI, well, it was a done deal! They fit great, and they are a nice length, so I can make a cuff on them or not. Very comfortable, too! I will wear these to work, and just for casual hiking. They could be dressed up a bit as well. They are very good looking pants!

Rated2out of5byMe4mtnsfromNoisy!These pants are really cute and I like the fit. Got all ready for work the other day, then started walking in them and the inner thighs make so much noise I had to change my clothes. I'm not large or super big-thighed or anything (5'6", 130 lbs, got a size 6 and they fit great). I'm surprised no other review has mentioned this. I can't believe I'm the only one. I'm taking them back.

Rated4out of5byjenDfromgood rear viewGreat pants! Love the low rise. Nice fabric, feel great to wear & make me look good from behind :). I second the other reviewer that there is a bit of a gap at the back, but a belt solves the problem. Also agree with the other comments that the pants run a bit small. I got the brown, and the green are looking tempting...
