"These shorts are TO. DIE. FOR. Perfect for summer, very lightweight, very airy, a great length, and a fantastic fit! LOOK/FIT: The fit is most like the first picture of the model wearing the black shorts. The leg holes aren't quite as slender as the other pictures make them appear. The colors are accurate, as is the length. No risk of showing any cheek! Note that the material is thin, but not see through. Even in the light blue, the material wasn't see through. Part of this is that the shorts are a bit loose. SIZE: Generally true to size, but if you have a particularly small waist - for your size - or a particularly flat rear - again, for your size - then you might consider sizing down. Also, if you want a more tailored look in the legs, I'd size down. The waist is fairly stretchy, so sizing down is okay. OVERALL: I thought these were quite slimming because of how flat they lay, they're great under some of the billowy tunics because the shorts don't stick out anywhere, so it helps in the "figure retention" department! Great product, even at full price! I love these!!!!"
