I am 5'5", 155 lbs, 29' waist, 37.5" hip and went with a Spinach colored size 10 the first time around. But, after wearing the shorts casually a few times, they stretched a good full size and ended up baggy and unflattering. So, I ordered the size 8 just to see how it fit and it ended up fitting perfectly! A little tight at first but stretched out to be a perfect size..
When rolled up 3x they are perfect for getting a tan on your legs with climbing and the rolled cuff acts as a elastic to keep the shorts from exposing your goods!. I definitely recommend these shorts!
