I have been looking for a pair of these for a while and based on the reviews, I decided to buy a pair of these, even though I’m not a petite. I am 5’8” with a 30” inseam without shoes on. I weigh 220 pounds. My waist and hips are both 43.5 inches. The Petite Large size fits loosely, and is a little bit large at my waist. That’s great for me, but probably not for anyone who is actually a petite large. They are really well made and just what I was looking for, though. On sale, they are a good value for the price.
