I'm just shy of 5'2" and wear P4 or P6 depending on the brand and the fit. I have a flat butt, small hips, thin thighs and a really short rise. Even though the fit will say that the waist is below the navel, it very rarely is for me! I don't really need anything that is a curvy fit. I don't really want to spend more than $100 for a pair of pants, but I still want them to be of good quality - I usually like lined pants with a blend of wool and some kind of stretch. So far, I really like the Ryan fit at Banana. However, they rarely make pants in this fit for petites. I've tried Ann Taylor and Ann Taylor loft, but again, they don't make many low rise pants. I don't like the quality of Limited or Express pants especially at the prices that they charge. Petite pants are so far and few between, and very rarely are targeted for younger women. What are your favorites?
