I am 5’ 1”. I weigh 155 pounds. My waist is 37”. My hips are 43”. I am in between a size medium and large (8-10). I ordered these shorts in a size medium. Initially, when I pulled them out of the packaging, I felt that the waist part of the shorts was WAY too small. And I was scared they wouldn’t fit me. I usually order a lot of my items from ByEgreis in a size medium. Unless specified not to in the description. Around the hips/leg portion these shorts fit great❣️Very stretchy in that area. However, the waist part, I barely was able to button close. Not much stretch in the waist. But I know if I would’ve ordered a size large, the waist may have fit better. But overall, the sizing from the waist down would’ve been to loose for my liking. I do pull them up as high as possible, to be able to button them. I am on a diet, so hopefully my waist gets smaller.
