    Oh, and your keys in the other back pocket. Good thing you chose the Tess this morning.

    Sure, you wore the prAna Women's Tess Shorts yesterday, and the day before, and the day before that. The soft, slightly stretchy organic cotton is so comfy, yup, you're going to pull them on again today. Hmm, they seem a bit tighter than you remember. Oh, you seem to have left half a banana in one of the back pockets, your wallet in the front right pocket, and laundry quarters in the left pocket.

    Happy

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 2

    I bought the grey pair on Backcountry after my denim pair have become my favorite pair of shorts. At first, I thought they were going to be a little tight, but a friend told me to just wear them and they did indeed stretch out and were very comfortable after maybe 10 minutes. I'm very happy with them! They are long enough to wear to work (I'm a high school PE teacher), and comfortable enough for me to go from the classroom to the gym.

    Great Shorts!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Size 10

    Very comfortable shorts for around town or for light to medium hiking! Lightly stretchy and great length on the thigh. Fit runs true to size.

    Great for Gettin' Stuff Done.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 0

    They fit true to size and are just the right length, not too long and matronly, but not too short. They are comfortable and eco-friendly. These shorts are wonderful. They are sturdy but also stretch with you.
    The red are great..... I think I may need those next.

    Perfect for me

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 12

    Love the modesty and fit of these comfortable shorts. I thought they ran a little small so I went up a size

    Comfy and Great Fit

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    These shorts are super comfy. I've worn them for casual use and also on several long hikes and they stay in place and don't ride up. I have a hard time finding a good fit around the waist since I have some curves but these shorts don't gap around the waist and are a nice length (not too short, not too long/maternal-looking).

    great short but prana sizing saddens me

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have quite a bit of prana in my closet. My bottoms range from size 4-10, though my body has not changed. Thinking I'd learned a lesson from many experiences with their shorts, I bought these in an 8 because I wanted them to be a bit loose. When I tried them on, they were perfect. Then, I washed them. Now they are very tight in the waist, and tighter through the hips. Once they stretch, they will likely be "okay", but never as perfect as when I first received them. Strongly considering buying a 10 now and giving the 8's to my sister. Other than sizing, the shorts are a fantastic medium weight, soft fabric and fun stripes.

    perfect summer short

      these shorts are great! comfortable, versatile, true to size. i have athletic legs and some shorts are often a bit too tight around my thigh. these shorts are fitted but have a bit of stretch so that they move and are comfortable as i garden, bike around town, or lounge in them.

      Size Down!

        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!
