I have proportionately short legs even for my 5' 1" height and have chubby legs and thighs. These were perfect for me in the regular length - not ankle length, but full length which I was hoping for. They are straight legged, don't cling to my legs like so many jeans these days. Love the dark storm blue - dark but slightly worn-looking. Rarely get trousers to fit me. Have actually ordered a second pair!
