I hate regular denim jeans. Too rough, stiff, heavy for Florida. These slacks are the greatest ever. They come in petite, but they also come in women's short (which I get) in a size 10. There is no other semi-dressy slacks that I would buy. They fit perfectly, have a wee bit of stretch which feels great for movement, and there is no sagging out at the back like most all other slacks. The waist is perfectly sized. I love them for travel with a button down tapered shirt to look dressed up for trips to Europe, which is a more formal atmosphere. And, for walking and sightseeing, they are so comfortable. Just wish they offered winter white.
