Help me understand my pants

Short waisted? Long waisted? How do you find out? I *think* I'm short waisted, since the crotch on most of my pants and tights hangs down to my knees. How do you measure? Where oh where could I find pants that don't either show my posterior or make me feel like M. C. Hammer? Please help me settle this once and for all.

I have a huge problem with pants (and tights, but that will never be fixed I think). I don't understand this long and short waisted thing. I do know that I have a better relationship with jeans now that lower waists have become common. I think I might be VERY short waisted, but I have long legs. So I'm confused.
Can you get jeans tailored to fix the rise or is that impossible?
Do you have any suggestions for best places to shop? Best styles to try? Perhaps styles that don't expose all my callipygian charms?
Perhaps just return to wearing skirts all the time?
