Gabriella H.wrote a review of Patagonia Baggies Board Short - Women's on August 12, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
I love these shorts, but I can absolutely see certain body types having issues with the fit. I am 5'7.5" 175-180 lbs, apple shape, solidly a US size 12 in pants, and I am very happy with the size large. The waist is perfect for me at my current size, but if I gained 5 pounds they would likely give me a muffin top. The waist is high (above the belly button), which I personally like for hiking/exercise. They are more or less straight through the hips and get wider at the leg. If you tend to gain weight in your hips/legs you may need to size up for them to fit comfortably through the hip. If you, like me, are fairly straight through the hips with thin to average legs you will probably find the cut of these shorts both flattering and comfortable!
