I'm 5'2" with a 27" waist, I purchased these in a size small in the Ash color. These were my first piece clothing purchase from Los Angeles Apparel -they have not been my last- and I was quite pleasantly surprised. The fabric is much sturdier than any sweats I've ever owned, which is great because if I'm $60+ for a pair of sweats they better last, and these definitely feel like they will. I've had them for about a month and I've worn them about 4x a week since buying them -they still look just like they did when I got them in the mail. I'm shorter, so the bottom of the pants is a tiny bit baggier on me than on the model, nbd but good to know. My favorite components of the pants are the thick ankle cuffs, the front pockets (they fit a standard Kindle), and the super cute back pocket (which can fit a large phone). I really like that when I happen to put something heavy in my pockets, it doesn't pull down on my pants (this happens when I put my phone in the pocket some of my other sweatpants), this is likely due to the strong waistband. I'm obsessed with these sweats, to put it mildly, they make me feel stylish and cozy. I'm pretty happy with this purchase.
