To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Cons: I'm usually a size medium (size 8 or 10), but because of the reviews here, I purchased a size 12. The shorts fit very large and barely stay on my waist. I have to slouch them down on my hips and they still don't fit well, (and I have large hips). While I cannot say that a size 10 would fit better and not be too snug (I like to wear these loose), the waist is just too large and the drawstring doesn't help. The shorts are very square, wish the waist was more tapered so wearing them lower on my hips didn't gap. They have small velcro pouch pockets. Wish they had real pockets, just because I love that look.
Pros: The material is nice and thin and has a nice stretch. The faux drawstring lace is good quality. Overall a good short. I decided to keep because of the colour and quality, rather than the fit -- which is rare. Hopefully I actually wear them now!
Fit as I expected them too, maybe a bit big, but I also sized up one size from my normal (normally sz 8, went to size 10 from reading reviews) Fairly close to being a high rise short (I have a long torso). Will be great for the beach. The stretch is also nice. I did have to synch them right up as tight as the string could go, but I am not sure if a size down would have fit as well as I like. So I’ll say these are true to size Or maybe a smidge smaller than true to size... which is reason I sized up one. There is no liner but I don’t need it as I wear regular bikini bottoms under it.
I was tempted to keep these shorts because they were cute and the material would have been nice and light for the hot weather. BUT, my butt is too big for them and it fit quite snug over my rear making the front closing a little too risky for my liking. The length was a little higher than mid thigh. I could have gone up a size and reordered, unfortunately I'm leaving for my trip before they'd arrive. I'd say if you got a big bum order 1 size up and then you won't be risking exposure.
These are nice but I’ve purchased these in a 6 (which I usually am). Too big. Then purchased in a 4.. too big. Now I need to order in a 2. Super annoying! Only giving 3 star because this is such a hastle but the shorts do seem really nice.
I love these shorts. They run small. I’m usually around a size 10. I got the 12 and they were snug. But when I bought the 14 some were big and one pair was perfect. I wear them hiking because they’re very light, I can swim in them, and they dry almost instantly. I wish the sizing was consistent or that the drawstring did more to cinch the waist, but I do love them and wear them more than most of my other shorts.
The reviews on here are garbage. These shorts fit very very tight and do not have any stretch to them whatsoever. I am a 12-13 in regular sizing, and after reading the reviews I went to a 14 thinking they would be spacious and stretchy. THEY ARE NOT! Go 2 sizes up at least If you like the circulation in your legs.
These shorts are comfortable and loose fitting and light weight. I haven’t tried them in the water yet but am confident they won’t get heavy. They aren’t too long and they aren’t so short your butt hangs out so if you’re self conscious in bathing suits these are perfect
I'm a regular size 6 in most clothing. I ordered two pairs of these shorts in size 6, the blue ones and the black ones. The black shorts fit perfect in the waist and hips. The blue shorts were slightly big in the hips and very big in the waist. You would think these shorts would fit identical but they don't. The drawstring is just in the front, it does not go all way around so you can't pull the waist tighter. I'm returning the blue shorts and keeping the black ones. The material is on the thin side, good for swimming. Hope this helps someone, its a gamble to pick the right size and there's no size chart except for plus sizes. My waist is 30 inches and my hips are 33 inches, the biggest part of my butt is 36 inches around.
El largo es perfecto, ni tan corto ni tan largo, la tela es ligera y seca rápido. Tiene cordón para ajustarlo solo no me gusta que el velcro se paga con el cordón y salen hilos, pero todo los demás es perfecto.
I bought a bigger size as most reviews said it was too small but I ended up having to Taylor it myself. The proportion are off, it hung down low on my hips but the crotch was sitting so low and baggy it looked like I was wearing men’s shorts.
