Many shoppers have noted that they did find the shorts run large, so if you’re looking for a more form-fitting silhouette, definitely size down before ordering.

As one reviewer wrote, “These shorts are super comfortable! I love wearing them around the house and to workout. The only drawback is that they are a bit large, so I would definitely size down.”
