I went up a size for the bright color, since I had gotten the black 5" cycle shorts in S before. When it's in black, it's very flattering and hides a lot of my rolls, but with the brighter color, I went up a size so it wouldn't be too tight. This looks so cute with a workout shirt but also with an oversize shirt for daily wear. I LOVE these shorts. I'm 5'1", so the 5" length is perfect and hits mid thigh. It is so comfortable to wear for yoga and also walking for an hour long walk by the lake. I love that it doesn't roll up my thigh when I do yoga, but it also doesn't stick so tight to my thigh that it feels like all circulation is being cut off. Highly highly recommend. Hoping that more sizes and colors are available so I can get one in every color!
