Not true to size
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
I am a 5'3 and 115 lbs petit by all standars.
Ordered a size 4 cause this is within my size range.
Alas, the shorts got stuck at my mid thighs.
I guess being a latina might have something to do with it.
Anyway, the fabric is so soft and the cut is so chick that I reordered the same one in a larger size. I hope I get to wear them soon.
Perfect summer shorts
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Sizing : 5'9" 140 lbs -- fit very well; not tight, nor too loose. After several wears and no washing, they still retain their size and remain wrinkle-free.
Fabric: beautiful lightweight, thin material that is comfortable to wear in the heat AND these shorts dry so quickly! Perfect if you might be getting wet.
The color I purchased is a deep wine color and while I don't usually buy things this color, I will be now - the color stands out in pictures and looks just awesome. Also goes well with most tops.
Bought these on sale and the value is really great.
I ordered a wine shorts.
I live in Korea.
I wore Arc'teryx shirt and short when I go to Gwanak mountain in Seoul.
They're very comfortable, light and pretty.
I LOVE these shorts! They are so comfortable and flattering...wore them this past weekend while camping...they aren't too short and aren't too long. I wish the site showed detailed/back side photos of them, because the back pockets are really cute! I will be buying both other colors and wearing them practically every day this summer.
