I tried on tons of base layers and work out tights at REI last weekend (Patagonia, North Face, etc.), but nothing was as comfortable and well-fitting as Hot Chillys. I am 5'1, and the small fits great -- they bunch a bit at the ankle, but of course I'm used to that from regular-sized garments since I'm so short. The sizing chart on the label for these is true to size -- my waist measurement is 26.5" and hip is 36", putting me right in the middle of the range for their "small."
The relaxed fit on these is nice -- there's plenty of room for movement, without too much bagginess. The rise is pretty low, a couple inches below bellybutton on me.
Looking forward to wearing these on the slopes this ski season!
