I am a size 6-8 (5'7" 135lb) so i got the 10 cause reviewers said they run way too small. The size 10 are too big! The elastic waist stretches quite a bit, and the rest have too much room, so these dangle off my hips, and look poofy everywhere else. I think the 8 might have been perfect, but not avail so these are just being returned. I got the 6 and 8 in the longer version (board shorts) cause reviewers said those ran big. The 6 are perfect!

I purchased these as a cover up for the matching swimsuit. I wear a size 8 pants. The size 8 in these shorts was much too small, but it was the only size available. Back they went. When a 12 became available, I ordered them. They fit around (barely), but were super short. They would have been really uncomfortable to wear. I did like the sueded fabric and the great color, but they really were not practical. I don't think I could have worn them in public...beach only.

I bought these shorts and got good use out of them on a sailing/beach vacation. They are quick-drying and very short. I am 5'-10" 145-150 lbs. and usually wear a size 8 in pants. I ordered a size 8, and they worked fine but I think if I had had the size 8 and 10 side-by-side, I might have chosen the 10 instead. So, I'd say they run a little on the small side, but not extremely so. Great print.
