Rated 2 out of 5 by klairev Lower Rise than Expected. Super Short.
I really loved the style of these pants and JCP didn't have them in a tall size, so I thought I'd try a regular inseam. They are super short ... I need just a 33.5-34" inseam and I think these were closer to barely 30".
I'm built straight up and down, with not much of a waist and narrow hips and thighs and a normal/regular belly. These pants were big in the waist and tight in the thighs, which is normally a good fit for my body type, but not with these. There is no string at the waist to adjust them, and the rise is so low, (maybe an 8" rise??) that there would be no way they would stay up. I couldn't go up a size to have a bigger thigh bc then the waist and butt would be huge.
Still, they are very nicely made and the seaming on them made them really flattering. Had they been available in a tall length I would have repurchased them and taken them to a tailor to take them in at the waist, bc I really did like them that much.
Bummer! JCP -- you say you sell Talls, but they're rarely ever available!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LinOR True to size and comfortable
These pants are very comfortable. I am no longer able to wear tight pants or jeans due to an illness so I began the search for something looser fitting. I was a bit unsure of what to get but when I saw these I decided to give them a try. I wear them when we are out running errands and for doctor appts, etc. As for size I am 5'3" & 160 lbs and I wear the "XL Short" but can also wear size "L Short" if I want the legs to be a bit tighter (but the tummy and waist are also more snug in the size "Large", ha!). Hope this helps, I always wish people would give their size and weight so I could know if I would be able to wear things.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Miranda What the heck? Where are my pants?!
I have 10 pairs of these pants. I wear them every day to work, gym, everywhere. That being said, I just purchased 2 blacks and 2 grays to keep my stock up (they're saved in my favorites so I know I ordered the same ones as always). I was just going to hang them in the closet but decided to try them on just to make sure of the fit, etc. Imagine my surprise when I had to shimmy into them. If I wanted a girdle, I would have bought one.
So here's my scathing review of these miserable pants:
I am 5'4" with an inseam of 30". The average length is not.
NEW inseam=33-1/4". ORIGINAL=32".
NEW rise=11". ORIGINAL=10".
The NEW Slim-Fit cut is 1/2" more narrow than the ORIGINAL (N=8-1/4" at knee vs O=8-3/4" at the knee).
The fabric content has not changed so I do not understand the difference in the feel of the fabric but it does feel thinner, cheaper. The country of origin has not changed either. The only thing that has changed is the pattern shape.
Finally analysis: The new pattern sits higher on the waist, is longer on the length, and slimmer on the leg.
If this is how the pants are going to continue I will be taking them off my favorites list because nobody should have to shimmy into their clothes-ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Daisy2who no pain but much gain for easy fit no binding pants
My new Xersion slim-fit pants are true to size which means I do not feel like an encased sausage while I am working out at the local gym nor do I look like one. I wish that the pocket was bigger but that is really of no consequence. These pants launder beautifully and do not draw up neither do they get baggy during wear. I really like that they come in petites so that I did not have to do any alterations. All in all they are a good wearing experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bookery Nice looking pants
I don't care for leggings. I don't like the close feel of them, but sometimes want the comfort of stretchy pants. I bought these online as I liked the look of them - more like pants with the boot cut. They are comfortable and sit at a good spot on the belly. The gray is a nice color. The styling is nice. I purchased these in xs and they fit perfectly. They are the slightest bit too long. I may shorten them an inch.

These pants are fantastic for exercise or dance. True to size in my opinion, look great, quality stitching, and I can move my legs freely. Good buy
