Sizing Varies Too Much

  • Size Bought: Large

I bought a size medium last year when I weighed 130. This summer at 140 they were too tight so I bought a large. They are WAY too big. I did love them when they fit!!

Sizing is dramatic

    I bought a medium black which I was super happy with. They fit perfectly when I was standing up but when I sit down the leg holes get very tight. I ordered the khaki color in a large hoping to just get one size up, but it was seriously twice as big. I had about 6 inches of room from my skin to the waist band with the large. Can they make a medium and a half where the pant legs are large but the waist band is medium??

    Runs small

    Material seems durable yet light. Would have loved these shorts but were too tight. I usually wear a 10/12 and ordered the large.

    These shorts are so comfortable! They are the perfect material for hiking on a hot summer day or even to throw on while you go get coffee on a summer morning. They are cute enough that you can wear them pretty much every wear which is what I love the most.
