Rated 5 out of 5Â by BWeaves 1. I'm 5'5" tall, 136 lbs, and 36D-31-40 and the size 8's fit but were a bit too tight in the rise. The size 10's fit in the waist but were too big in the hips and stuck out making me look wider.
2. The shorts are very well made and the fabric is thick and stiff.
3. I love this whole look with the sweater, but it's very vintage. It would look cute on a 20 year old. On me, (over 50) it just looked like I dug something out of my mother's closet. It just wasn't flattering on me, but I love it on the model.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by sharkacr special retro bermudas
I wasn't feeling the shorts from the picture but in person they were drawing me to them. That may explain why the store only had two pairs left, while on-line they are all in stock at this great price... In person the print is very eye-catching and special. The quality is truly amazing! very nice fabric, the waistband and pockets are well constructed and the fit is very flattering thanks to the thickness/firmness of the fabric. For me, they ran small, I sized up to a 6 and they fit like a glove, but in a comfortable way. Size 4 i could barely get pass my hips. I have a 27" waist and wear size 2-4 in dresses.
Hope my review helps, i highly recommend these for the retro vibe and tailored fit!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Styleicon Loved these bermudas. Great pattern and great fit. I purchased and returned because I couldn't find anything to go with them. Though the sweater looks great in the photo, I do not have the kind of figure that goes well with a slim button cardi. The major problem with these shorts is that if you tuck anything into them you've got a huge white waist band in your middle. Not flattering. You really need something that goes down over the waist band...as the model in the photo so clearly illustrates.
These fit curvy girls, but think the overall look of slim shorts with a slim cardi is more flattering on Jackie O type figures. Highly recommend you buy the pictured cardi while you can. Though the coral color was around a lot of shops this spring-like Ann Taylor and others-it's hard to find now.
