I'm looking for a friend who I know has trouble with trouser length.

What do you do, always buy from petite range? I've seen some (online) that I think she would like but as they're not petite would it be a waste of time getting them? She doesn't like pink/floral either so that narrows things down.

Where's good for warm winter pjs (or just bottoms iyswim) for shorter women, at the moment?

I would go for some with a cuffed ankle. They may well be ok.

I am a shorter than 5'3 and I like the cuffed ones, but I find the length varies a lot, sometimes they are fine as they are.
I've never bought petite ones I either roll them up or hem them.
If she is slim too she might be able to wears children's?

So is cuffed better? I saw those Next ones and thought they were fun, too Christmassy though do you think? This is for birthday gift coming up very soon.

I am shorter than that and wear M&S pyjamas as they're fine.

I'm only a shortie and the Tesco brushed cotton bottoms have always been ok on me.

I am 5' 2.5". I'm a bit overweight at present, but when I was slim I always wore kids' pjs. Cheaper too. Same goes for trainers & socks as I'm a size 3... I tend to avoid kids' shoes though, half of them come with a toy or silly app these days blushgrin

Cuffed is where it is at for sure!

I had buy all new pjs after losing weight a couple of years ago and then had to spend time in hospital.

Lots are primark-one pair were massively long the other two are ok as they are.
I have cuffed next ones which are fine.
Sainsbury pjs are the right length,but on the small side confused everything else Sainsbury do is huge?!
Asda and gap pjs are always very long too, in my mind because they are American, but I have no idea really.

For a present I think next is a safe bet.

I'm 5'3" and I'm currently living in these from H&M. They come in 3 designs.

Sounds like it varies a lot. I think it's probably best if I head to the shops and measure them up against myself, I'm taller.

Agree on Sainsburys being huge. Will avoid Asda and Gap. Try Primark, Next and M&S. Possibly New Look.

Thanks all
