Not all the same

I'm 5"3", 133, extreme pear, no tummy. I ordered 3 pair in size 6. I got black, khaki (they use a weird name for the color), and the white (maybe called jet stream). I ordered the 31" inseam because I have relatively long legs. I'm short waisted. The black and khakis are both marked slim, but the jet steam are not. The black and khakis are too small, even in the waist and I'm someone who always has the waist taken in. They strangely pulled in the crotch, which NEVER happens to me because I'm so short waisted. The jet stream are perfect for me. They are cut for someone short waisted with big hips and a little waist who is a fairly standard size 6 (sometimes 4) in women's pants. I take a 28 in Paige jeans, if that helps, but I sometimes have to take in the waist. In terms of appearance, the black and khaki do not look like you can get away with wearing them to work (not my work, where I'd need to dress them up with a suit jacket). The black, for instance, has that slight fade look, where it is a little lighter along the seams, like many hiking pants. The khaki is a little more even in the color, but still has that rougher outdoor wear look. They are all very nice looking and very well made, just not for work imo. I do think I can get away with wearing the jet stream pair (which I'm keeping) to my office this summer. The color is even and of course it will be summer (a little more casual). Jet stream is a pretty true white—no yellow in it. I imagine it is just a little less stark than the true white that was available earlier. BEST THING—I tried these on with black underwear and you could HARDLY see it. This is a huge issue for me with white pants. I hate the see through look, and these are GREAT in that regard. You can wear these with any light colored underwear without telling the world something it doesn't need to know about you.
