Cute and Comfy but Run Big
I bought these to use as a swim short with the bandeau swim top. Measured myself and went by the size guide listed with the shorts and ordered the 3x as the measurements indicated (which was big according to the size I normally wear, but I went with it). Was really disappointed when they arrived and they were huge on me. Either I'm terrible at measuring myself or the sizing is off. They are very cute and lightweight, and I really liked the look of them, but they were unflatteringly big. I would have returned them, but I needed them for a trip and didn't have time, so I wore them on the trip, and they did their job, but I never felt cute in them. If I had the time before the trip I would have returned for a size smaller. I think they would have been a really great swim short sized down one size.
