A few of our favorite things...
I am 5'3 and waist is between 34 and 32 depending on the day. Hips are 41.5. I have longer legs and a short torso, they hit at my natural waist and a few inches above the knee. I purchased a medium.
First of all, the fit is excellent. The waist goes all the way up to my ribcage, so when paired with either the Dani or Becky bra there's actually overlap. I kinda wanted a small sliver of skin to show when wearing as a set, but no big deal. The waistband doesn't roll and is double layered so feels nice and secure, doesn't ride down. The leg hem does not dig into my skin like some bike shorts do and I find they hit at a good spot about an 1 or 2 above the knee. They are super comfy and nicely fitted.
There are two cons however, which is the reason for 3-4 stars. Because there is a middle seam I found sometimes there was a camel toe effect. The second is that they are not squat proof. However, I think both of these can be mitigated with underwear choice and personally I do not find this a deterrant to keeping the article.
I’m a bit perplexed by the size chart. I have a 46” hip and 35” waist, which is an L according to the chart. That seemed wrong to me, since I normally wear a 16, so I got an XL. I think I’d need to size up again for a proper fit, as the fabric has that overstretched sheen to it. I also found the fabric a bit thin for my liking. It’s a nice colour, though!
Wowwwww these shorts are SO COMFY!!! They're a perfect weight - heavier than Lulu's Align, but softer and more comfortable than Girlfriend Collective. I love the bamboo fabric, it's my favorite that FL offers. The inseam is a touch long for me, but I'm 5'3 with shorter legs so that's not a surprise. I love how comfortable the waist is and I can't wait to wear these all summer!
The fabric is so soft and looks great with my honey Andie bra. I love the length as they go just above the knee on me and don't cut off the circulation on my thighs anywhere. Great high waist, form fitting shorts!
Measurements: 38 bust, 32 waist, 43 hips, 5'7" and I bought a M
I adore these shorts. I plan to wear them as my chub rub preventers in the summer under dresses, but I plan to rock them solo as well. They’re perfectly compressive and the fit is perfect for those of us with a large waist-hip ratio & thicker thighs. No pinching, no waist gap, they’re perfect. I’m a pretty standard 2X, but I like a more compressive fit in my FL bamboo, so I went with XL & they are just right. Already plotting my order for the restock!
