I am 5’ 1”. I weigh 155 pounds. My waist is 37”. My hips are 43”. I have a short torso. I’m in between a size medium & large. I ordered these shorts in a size medium. It’s a good fit. Not too tight. And not too small. LOVE that there is elastic incorporated in the waist band. It has pockets & is lined. I’m a fan of bright colors as well. Ive been on a linen kick lately. Great for hotter weather. I’m going through the change of life 😆 & love how light weight Egi’s pieces are. The shorts are comfy too.
