Large, size down if possible
Purchased a size 6 and too large for me around the waist. It has a tie to tighten slightly but they are quite baggy and make my hips look fatter then what they are when worn high on the waist. The shorts are very casual. Would suit as pjamas shorts with this pattern.
Originally purchased for the beach but just the sizing is too large for me.
Otherwise they are nice length shorts. Light, comfortable. They do crinkle very easily compared to other linen pants I have purchased from assembly label.
