    At short sizes, which is called stocky sizes as well, it works the other way around. According to the
    waist size, the leg length is shorter at stocky sizes. The value of sizes should be divided by 2. A stocky woman with waist size 38 should take to short size 19. It works on the same principle in case of men. A stocky man with 52 is with short size 26 properly

The bad alternative to short sizes is to cut the trouser leg. That has even several disadvantages:

A huge effort, if it is even possible, is caused by cutting the leg if the material of the leg comprised a zipper, a cord, a snow guard or similar things and materials. Through the cutting, the proportion would be not fitting longer. The relation of the leg length between the waistband till the knee and the knee to the cut is changed. According to the cut this can look quite inappropriate. And with trousers with preformed knee for the improvement of the freedom of movement the desired function gets lost, because the position of the sportsman's knee with the positioning of the knee darts in the trouser leg do not agree.
