These shorts are UH-mazing. I wear them camping/backpacking/hiking because they are comfortable and VERY fast drying. I also wear them around town, because the back pockets make your rump look great (or so my husband says). I love that they aren't daisy dukes but they aren't something my grandma would wear either. I am somewhere between 5'1 and 5'2. Last summer I was 120-125 lbs and needed a size 4. This summer I am 110-112 lbs and need a size two. Hope that helps when choosing a size. Careful trying to get wrinkles out--even with an iron on low, it will easily scorch the fabric. Put them in the dryer on medium and remove promptly- I found they don't shrink much.
I recently went backpacking in the Canadian Rockies and came back knowing I had to get new hiking shorts.. mine were ill-fitted, to loose, and honestly not very flattering. Purchased these and they fit wonderfully, are stylish, and I like that I can easily flip up the hem line to make them a little shorter when it's hot. I love the back pockets and the slim fit. I'm 5'9", 130lbs so don't want something baggy, as hiking pants/shorts often are. Very flattering and I won't just be wearing them hiking!
