These fit true to size (I wear a medium, size 8-10, purchased a medium). The elastic in the very top of the waist band makes these shorts uncomfortable and unflattering. The top of the shorts cuts into my stomach. These shorts also don’t provide much compression, so being squeezed by the elastic band at the top of the shorts is doubly un-flattering while creating a puffy look at the front of the shorts.
The pockets are the best part but don’t make up for everything else.
Functionally these work as expected but there are more flattering and comfortable shorts out there.
