Review: Old Navy "The Rock Star Jeggings"

**Update: I ended up ordering the 0 Short instead and it fits much better! It's less restricting in the waist and throughout the legs.
Waist laying flat is 12" and same inseam**
Sweater: GAP - size XSP (buy here)
Jeggings: Old Navy in ruby - size 0P (buy here)
Shoes: Ann Taylor - size 5 (peep toe slingbacks)

After seeing these jeggings on Wendy and how well they fit her, I had to give them a try. 
Waist laying flat: 11.5" (teeny tiny)
Rise: 6"
Inseam: 27.5"
SIZE/FIT: These run really small and are body hugging. I was shocked to see the waist was as tiny as it was.  See how they compare to the Gap leggings in 00P. It's 1.5" smaller! After a full meal, I may not be able to breathe.
If you are taller than me (5' tall), you may want to get the regular for a longer inseam. My ideal is 28" and I am afraid this may shrink too much and look like capris after several washes. I am curious to see how the 0 regular's fit - please share if you have tried these :) I was in a big rush and forgot pictures of the back- sorry!

MATERIAL: 2% spandex, 21% polyester, 77% cotton. They are very soft and is much thinner compared to the GAP legging jeans. 

COLOR: The color is Ruby. I'm a little perplexed as to why they chose this name but I like the color. They are much darker (no fading/whiskers) than the GAP jeans.

PRICE: Even at full price ($34.94)- not bad for jeggings but since Old Navy always runs promotions, you can score these at a much lower price. I'm sure after Christmas- they will go on sale.  I had some rewards money so these ended up being free!
VERDICT: I like them but I'm afraid that the inseam will be too short after washing them several times. Still debating. I ordered the marshmallow white ones as well for Spring/Summer.

What are your thoughts on these?
