Thanks to Una I was able to try a pair of the AT slouchy trousers in my size but petite instead of regular. To my (big) surprise I'm liking the petite fit better!
The regular pair would certainly need to be hemmed before I could wear them out, but after looking at the petite I'm wondering if the regular pair is too baggy (both pairs are baggy/slouchy; the regular is just baggiER/slouchiER.). As I said in my other thread I will be back to my normal size in the next month or two, which will put me about 0.5-0.75 pant sizes smaller.
The tan pair in #1/3 is the regular, the orange pair in #2/4 is the petite. Ignoring color and keeping my upcoming shrinkage in mind, which fit do you ladies prefer? Angie I hope you can weigh in on this, too. Again, I'm thick skinned :) Thanks!
