I am usually a 24- 25 in shorts/ jeans. I weigh 108 lbs and I am 5'3" and had to return both the size 24 and 25 as they run unusually small. I will now be ordering the shorts in a size 27. Hopefully this will be large enough as there wasn't much of a difference between size 24 and 25. But otherwise love the style, and material of the shorts, a perfect summery white high waisted short.
