Low rise, narrow thigh

I am 5'8 1/2", 39" hip and wear a size 8 or M. Ordered this in the 10, Mystic Green. The fabric isn't a hard shell, but not a soft shell either; it is a soft, thin shell material. The rise is quite low, think low rise jeans; inseam is too short for me with ski boots, and lining is a jersey lining rather than a traditional brushed lining attached to the shell. Since I ordered a size larger than I really am, I would rate these as running small in the hip/leg and true to size in the waist. They would have been fine for me to wear with a belt to be protected from the elements watching a sporting event, but would not work for skiing.
