• I usually wear a 0-2 and I bought Small, which they say is 2-4. The Small fits me loosely - which I like for hiking. If you like your shorts a little loose, go for a medium. if you like your shorts tighter, get the Small.

    Hope this helps!

  • Hmmm...well they have an elastic waist yet the cut is sort of close." I really cannot say. I usually wear a size 12 and ordered an XL and I love the fit. I think the XL is listed as size 14 so maybe they run a little small?

  • According to our fit models this item is running true to size. You would probably be comfortable in either, in which case I would recommend choosing based on whether you prefer to have them fit a little tighter or a little looser.

  • I am 5'6", 145 lbs. and short waisted (read - plump in the middle). I usually wear a size 12 or 14 and the size large fits perfectly.

  • I would recommend small. They have a relaxed fit. I am 5'1" and weigh 120. I first ordered a medium and it was a little large in the waist but I can still wear them. Then I orderd 2 more pair in a small and like the fit better. Love these shorts.

  • I don't know if this helps but I'm 5'6" and weigh 160 and the XL was just right. Not too tight. I wish I weighed 130 lbs!

  • I am 5'7", 127lbs, and the small fit great, and I carry more weight in my hips than torso.
