Compared to the previous design these fit a tad shorter and closer to the leg, though I wouldn't consider them tight at all. I am 5'3", wear a 4-6 usually and purchased a medium. I really liked the fit as they are basically right on my ankles (more like full length), but I think some people who are taller may find it a bit short. the material is still substantial and super smooth, and the seams look well done. While I think I prefer the older version for being at-home comfy, the updated design looks a little sleeker for if you want to wear them out while still being comfortable. Really pleased with them.
