    shouldn't have listened to the reviews.

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 10
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    I should not have listened to the reviews. I am 5'6" 135 lbs. My hips are a good 39" and waist 29". I followed the reviews and ordered a size 10. on Steap and Cheap. They were way too big. I could slip the shorts on without undoing the laces. They also are shorter than they appear on the pictures. I am already out $14 because of shipping and returning. Not even bothering ordering the size 8 to exchange now and paying another $7 in shipping cost. It's a shame because my husband has that model of shorts in men and they are perfect for wakesurfing/wakeboarding. They dry super fast. I really liked the pattern and the length otherwise.

    Disappointed

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 6
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    Runs very small. I'm 5'5", 130 lbs and wear a size 4. I ordered a 6 but need to send it back and order an 8. Lastly, there was no packing slip or return label in my package. It was very inconvenient to have to go online to print one out.

    perfect boardshort

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 8
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 127lbs

    but size 8 and 10 is big for me. so I have to order again..

    So Cute! Runs Small!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small

    These are great quality. I would say order 2 sizes up vs what you typically wear if you like a fitted but not tight look.

    Love these shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'3"
    • Weight: 115lbs

    I purchased these to wear on the river and they are awesome. Perfect for the river, great for every day wear as well. They are light, dry quickly, and fit true to size. Additionally, they are just the right length. I am on the lookout for another pair now.

    Cute but not the fit I was hoping for

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: xs
    • Height: 5'2"
    • Weight: 110lbs

    I'm 5'2" 110# and got the XS. Shorts are a boxy cut and cut up the rear for me. Fabric has no give even when wet- really wanted to like these but they were uncomfortable when sitting in a kayak all day.
