- Q & A
Runs large maybe?
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: Medium
- Height: 5'3"
- Weight: 140lbs
First off, I love these. They're lightweight and I love the length on me. Very flattering. I am in between sizes and I bought a medium, thinking that Patagonia ran on the smaller side. I could have definitely gotten away with a small. Luckily the drawstring is fully functional (not just for looks) so I can tighten the waist up a bit. Love the little zippered pocket on the back, but just as a warning, it is big enough for keys and small things but probably not a cellphone.
Just in case it helps anyone else buying these, my hips at the widest point are 37.5" and my waist is 30"
Light! Don't ride up! Flattering!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: xs
- Height: 5'2"
- Weight: 118lbs
Shockingly awesome, 5'2 118 lbs, XS fits perfect! These hit where my thumbs end (think cheerleading skirt)! Flattering on a curvy bum! Stink-proof, may be because they dry so fast! The inner layer undies, don't ride in, and stay put on long sweaty runs.
