These shorts are incredibly cute and flattering, they feel buttery soft and I would imagine them to be super comfortable. Unfortunately, these were too small for me :( I had ordered a medium, but they are definitely on the small side. The material does stretch, and I technically could fit into these, but I would feel like an elephant in them. I'll probably order another in the future, I just don't know what to do with the ones I have now. Order a size up and you should be good to go!
Im not small nor am I very plus size but I do carry most of my weight in my stomach. With that being said my only complaint is how tight the waistband is but if I would have gone up from a L to an XL they would fit more relaxed and the band would be looser. I wanted them to be more fitted in the legs though so overall just buy the pants lady. They are soft like butter and my legs are long so usually pants are short on me but these are perfect in length. I have on dark panties under them and you cant see them. They are high waisted so they hit right at my ribs which makes the band being snug more comfortable because I can chase my kids around the house and nothave to pull my pants up a million times. I will be getting more pairs for sure. I'm 5ft 5in and 180lbs wearing a L in the picture.
Black and white plaid with green and black side stripe (S103 I think) in XL. I’m 5’5.5” 158 lbs. pear shape 32-33” waist and 43-44” hips. The XL fits just loose enough... The waist, butt, and tummy have just enough cling (I have a bit of a mom-belly) to not look too big and baggy, but also not fit like yoga tights. Most of the time in letter-sizes I wear a large and sometimes XL. I agonized over what size to get after reading reviews that went both ways. I knew I didn’t want the second-skin fit so I went up a little. My only issue is the length. I wanted a length more like what is pictured where the cuff is just above the ankle, but they sit around my ankles instead. I guess I can’t be mad... I’m sure the model in the picture has 4 or 5 inches on me. These are very soft and super stretchy. My husband kept petting my leg after I put them on. So far I haven’t found any issues with seams like some have posted.
These shorts are suuuper soft (I was very surprised), quite short, definitely more like yoga-short style pajama bottoms than anything for athletics or for shapewear.
They’re a little loose on me and I’m on the larger end of medium (10 in us size pants) so I personally would’ve ordered a small if I had known but am satisfied enough to keep them as is. The sizing issue could be due to the fabric though as it’s super stretchy and soft jersey-like material.
Bottom line, I feel like they will be fine for the purpose I bought them for (extra coverage under short skirts and dresses) but again, keep in mind that there’s zero structure if you’re looking for a tummy tuck type garment for that purpose.
