Rated 1 out of 5 by DesignGal Not made for petite women, even in petite sizes
I normally wear a J.Crew size 4. Sometimes, but not often, a size 6. I ordered a size 6P thinking that would be a good fit. The waist was tiny, probably more like a size 2, and the inseam was easily a 32+. I believe the description said 32, but I was hoping they would fit elsewhere and I could have them taken in. The fit was just ridiculous for petite. I would have to get a size 8 or 10 to fit me properly, which would mean the width of the pants would be even more ridiculous and the length would have been easily 8 inches too long. I love you, J.Crew, but what are you doing with your petite sizing? I am a solid size 4, 5'1"/128 lbs, athletic build and there is no reason for me to have to size up to an 8P or 10P to get a pair of pants to fit me and still have to take in the inseam.
Petite ladies, these pants are adorable on the model but good luck getting them to work on your smaller frame. These need to be scaled down all the way around. J.Crew, you're missing the mark on this one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Meme For a petite these pants were so long
I ordered a 2P and they fit fine except the length was at least 3 inches too long. So disappointed and I'm sure they had to be marked wrong. And now they are unavailable. Jcrew sizing is so,erratic and I may no longer shop here. I cannot tell you how disappointed I was because I so,wanted these pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sassysue Awesome wide leg pants
I read the other reviews and expected the pants to be oddly proportioned or somehow strange. They aren't. They're straight up awesome! Yes, they are long, but they are meant to be worn all the way to the floor with high heels. That's the point. I got my regular size and these fit me exactly like they should. They are a cool, contemporary pant and I recommend them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Freckles Great pants for work or social outing
These pants are incredibly cute paired with high heel sandals and a slim fit Oxford shirt. I love that they transition well from work to evening social attire. While the overall fit of the pants was excellent (I ordered the 000P), they were extremely long. I am 5'4" and the pants skimmed the ground, even with 4" heels. This makes me question whether the fit model for this style was truly petite.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Marsha Great Wide-Leg Pants
I purchased these in both the black and the gray. The pants are very comfortable, and the fabric and drape are everything I hoped for. I'm short so I ordered the petite size, which is still a little long for me but a perfect length with low heels. The petite sizing does run quite small (I ordered one and two sizes up based on other reviews), and my only other complaint is that the inverted pleats should be a little deeper, so as not to look open or ill fitting. To address the pleating issue I tried the pants in regular sizing. This only helped a little but the overall garment was much too long and sloppy looking on my small frame, so I'll return the regular size and keep the petite sizes. FYI, I noticed that the regular size seems to fit more true to size. Overall these are still a high-quality, great pair of pants.
