Scorpion Women's Savannah II Pants
Was too small, reordering in large
First off, I'm 5'4" and around 150-155lbs. I have very thick hips/thighs compared to my waist and calves.
For reference, I usually wear a size 8 (sometimes a 10 in slim cut/narrow hip things) in women's jeans, and 9 or 11 in juniors, depending on the brand. I tend to wear M shirts, so I'm kind of pear shaped. I believe my measurements are 44-45 hips/butt and 32 natural waist?
I read a TON of reviews for these pants and was not sure if I should get a medium or large. I ended up ordering the medium, and to my disappointment, I could not get them up around my hips to be buttoned. I'm returning them for a large, because from what I could tell they are very flattering, and they do seem to be cute very nicely for those with curvy hips/butt. Mine just are *extra* curvy! If you have a slimmer/less hippy build, definitely consider ordering a size down.
They *may* run a bit long, but I have to wait to confirm that, as I could not get the pants up entirely.

Sizing did not work for me
Bought these pants based on all the reviews I read. My measurements are 27.5 waist, 37.5 hip, and 29 inseam.
I got the XS. They fit well with no pants underneath, slightly snug with yoga pants, and really snug with jeans.
I decided to return it because the pant length did not work for me. It was a little too long and the knee pad was not sitting at the proper position. I was disappointed that this did not workout but overall really like the style and quality of the pants.

Like the fit and style.
Love the pants, did have to return and order 2 sizes smaller than my original choice. I do like them to fit like pants not overpants. I ordered a medium and returned for an X-small. I am 5'3" 123lbs.
I wear them with leggings, but I have worn them with jeans\dress pants as well.

Great, versatile pants
I wore these non-stop on a two week trip through Tasmania and Victoria, Australia. On colder days, I wore them with the liners in (love the removable liner) and leggings underneath. On warm days, I took out the liner and left off the leggings and the air circulation was pretty good. They aren't very water proof, but that's fine. Velcro adjustments around the ankles are really convenient.
I find the corset styling on the side a bit dorky, but they are flattering in black and the belt loops are a huge perk. The loops alone are a good reason to opt for this pant over others. I'm 5'4" and 60kg, medium fit fine and left plenty of space for jeans underneath.
Luckily I havent had a chance to check the protection :) but the armor rests in all the right places.

fit and look great!
I have yet to take a spill in these (hopefully I never do) but they look and fit great. If you have a higher hip to waist ratio the pants will fit like a glove the liner won't but since I'm a summer rider that didn't matter to me.

Comfortable and stylish
These pants are really comfortable. I'm 5'9", size 29 waist and they fit good in length, but are a little loose around the quand and waist areas. I didn't bother returning them for a samller size cuz I don't mind the looser fit so I can wear pants underneath or just for a non restricting fit feeling while riding. I haven't rode through rain yet with them so I don't know how waterproof they are, but so far so good!

Love the Yellow/Black
I bought these in a size medium and wear them religiously. I love they are machine washable given the white gets dirty a lot easier. The fit a little big as I am 5'5" and weigh 135lbs. I am also curveless and buttless so this may lead to the fit as well. Love the belt feature as many of the protective pants do not offer this. Not to mention love the adjustable straps on the legs so that you can wear your layers under for cold weather riding. Got the jacket at the same time!! yellow bike, yellow gear! you can see me a mile away. ALWAYS getting compliments on this gear when I gas up.

Love these pants, but they do fit a lil snug especially if your wearing thicker pants underneath. I'm 5'10 and got the XL for the length also for the wiggle room in the leg. But I do have to wear a belt with them. The remove able rain pant is a bonus with these pants. Overall very happy.
