Mosey knit pants and what is average height for women?

One of my favourite new designs - the knit Mosey pant - is now available for sale.  I live in these pants!  They are incredibly comfortable and feel like leggings or trackpants when you are wearing them but they still look cool and you can dress them up when you go out.  

And as in most Minnie + Ree designs they come in two sizes which fit most women: Small is Aus/NZ 8-10-12 and Average is Aus/NZ 14-16-18.  Here are some pics:

Now the reason why this post is also about average height is because our gorgeous model above is wearing size Small and she is 5 foot 10 inches (177 cm).

The average height for women in Australia and New Zealand is now about 5 foot 5 inches which is 165 cm.  For women over 45 years the average height is 5 foot 4 inches so we have got taller over the years. The average size is now about a 14-16.  So I've sacrificed myself and here are pics of the size Average pants on an average height woman!

Want some of your own?  We have three colours in our online store at the moment - black, grey with a purple undertone, and a camel colour. They are in a medium weight knit fabric which is a cotton and polyester blend. Check them out here
