I have a pair of 27 jeans that I love, but not going to lie...the waist has gotten a little tighter this summer! I decided to order a 28 in these shorts and they are so cute! They fit perfectly and the color makes my tan luscious. I wore them to dinner last night and my boyfriend IMMEDIATELY told me how much he loved my shorts "are they new?" he asked, "I would have definitely noticed those if you wore them before!"
Highly recommend and I will be getting pair, for sure.
I have two pairs of the full length jeans in size 29, but they are a bit loose, so I decided to try the shorts in a size 28. Pulling them out of the package, I thought there is no way they are going to fit. I laid them on top of my long jeans, and there was at least an inch on each side of the waistband, meaning the waist is about 4 inches smaller! I was shocked there was such a huge size difference between a 28 and a 29. They did pull on (amazingly), and I could button and zip them. They fit like a glove and actually look really cute, even they are a little uncomfortable until they stretch out, and they are tighter in the crotch than I would normally wear. But, they do look so cute that I decided to keep them, because I figured that if I got a size 29 they would be way too big like my long jeans. I'm 5' 10.5" tall and weigh 159 lbs. My waist is 31" and my hips are 42.5".
