Usually I'm a size 8-10 in jeans but for all OR bottoms I'm a medium or 6. (I'm 5'9" and athletic build with a butt so I'm used to having to wear large bottoms in all other brands except OR). Just exchanged my 8's for a 6 and they're perfect. I have long legs and the length is great. Still sits lose on my larger thighs and has a draw string to bring in the waist. They sit on my hips rather than my waist. Great cut for long legs!
