I really don't like to leave a 1-star review, because I love the brand and was excited to receive these shorts. However, I feel like it's important to communicate that the sizes run very, very small. My dress size is 6, but I bought a size L of these shorts (advertised as 12-14), because I really hate wearing tight underwear! However when I got the shorts I was a little disappointed to find out that size L was extremely tight, and climbed up after walking like 3 steps (creating a disturbing wedgie effect). If you get these, definitely get a few sizes up.
