I am 4"11" & teach kickboxing & cycling classes. I was going to buy the woman's size, but I fit into girls large or XL. I often wear capri's to teach these classes & coming home from the gym, I'm wet & cold. These are so easy to throw on over my capri's, even with my sneakers on. I wore them to teach the kickboxing class over my capri's as a warm-up pant & easily took them off when I was warmed up. I loved that they fit me perfectly right above my sneakers. Nice and roomy, but not too baggy. Love the drawstring pockets. Able to keep my cell phone secure while training my clients.
I already recommended the women's version to my students. I will definitely get another pair.
