9 INCH HORIZONTAL STRIPE PHOTOGRAPHER SHORTS
Cool Patterned Short, Wrong Sizing
I was looking for a pair of patterned shorts for the Spring, and when I saw that Express had these I knew I had to get them!
I ordered them online right when I saw them in my usual size of 30. I get size 30 for the other Photographer shorts (solid colors and belted vertical striped), jeans, and dress pants; so I figured the sizing wouldn't be an issue. When they arrived, though, I tried them on and they felt like 32s or even 34s! I'm not sure if it's the softer material in these compared to the stiffer material in the other Photographers, but the sizing is way off. I even tried on another size 30 in store to validate the sizing issue, and it was the same problem. It wasn't a huge deal, just even exchanged the 30s for 28s. But my waist is not a 28.
Helpful tip: Order a size down from your usual size in these shorts!
