excellent length, but runs large

I have been going to great lengths in finding flannel pajama pants that are not short for me (5'8.5" height, 25" waist). I ordered the XS. First off, the flannel is very soft and the spruce color a calming combination of greens. The waistband wouldn't need cinching if I could keep it at my hip-bone, but the crotch hangs seriously low, even if I pull them up above bellybutton (in which case they do need cinching). The waistband ribbon is fully functional, so you can cinch them if needed. I found a solution by rolling the waistband down, because I really wanted to keep them (one can't size down from XS, and they're such a perfect length for me, and in fact I like that they're so roomy at hips and throughout the length). Bottom line: great find for tall girls, but be warned that they run large. Crotch to pant leg bottom: 31.5", waistband to crotch (front side): 13".
