I overall am pleased with my Carhartt Bib Overalls. I will mainly be using them for work in the extreme cold. The shoulder straps are much too long even after pulling them all the way tight and I had to alter them on my sewing machine. Other than that I am happy with my purchase. The person that I talked to ask a question was very nice and was able to help me answer my question.

I work outside in Colorado. Finally had enough of wearing 2 pairs of long johns and 2 pairs of jeans when it gets cold and bought these. Now I can wear just my work pants under these and be warmer than ever.
They do run a little long, so I had to exchange for a shorter inseam.
I am short waisted, many petites fit best due to this, and while I should wear a 10, purchased a 12 to allow for layering for cold. In the 12, the waist hit me in exactly the right place. I do not think you would be able to alter the upper, but you could shorten the overall straps easily even beyond where they currently allow, to adjust for your upper body length. The upper was surprisingly comfortable.

This exact reason is why they could be seconds. Often times companies tend to make the same style in a different way or different material and that is when they get passed on to us. It's just a cosmetic flaw that most people wouldn't notice unless compared to the others. The material is the same in these, the straps just come in a little closer, if were to look at the picture think of the browns being stretched out from the sides and they would look similar.|Since we have various stock you should only get that design in the black versus the other colors.

Those sizes refer to traditional U.S. women's sizing. Please visit our size chart for bust, waist and hips measurements:|http://www.sierratradingpost.com/lp2/SizeChart.html.

These are women's/ladies dress sizes. My daughter usually wears a size 6 in ladies clothes, so that's the size I bought her in these. Just be advised, the other size (30, 32, 34, etc.) is for the length of the legs. These run REALLY long (in my opinion), so just error on the side of short rather than long. :)||Hope this helps.

If its for cold weather, order a 12 or so, so that there is room for extra layers, sweatshirt, etc to fit undernear-you want some room.

I wooldn't. In fact, these are big. I wear a Carhartt work jean in size 2, and ordered a 4 that was available in the Sandstone bibs. They are huge in the butt and legs..and plenty long..the 32 inseam is longer than the 34 in the jean or about the same. The top and waist is smallish, but still allows room for at least one whole layer of clothes. If you want to wear these as true coveralls, then be assured, you can wear a 10 over top of 10 jeans, with plenty of room left over.
