Have been a long-time fan of the Ferrosi line, so I was excited that they updated the look and added new beautiful colors. In the old Ferrosi's, i was always somewhere between a 6 and 8, depending on the time of year. I felt like a 6 would be good for me now, and in any other brand, style, etc I'm ALWAYS a 6. HOWEVER, the strange sizes that OR chooses to produce once again disappoint. These new shorts were abhorrently too small in a 6. Even with some slight stretching, I would never wear them in public. Should have read the reviews before purchasing! Back they will go, and I am on the fence if I will get an 8. The side zip pocket is so tiny and wouldn't be useful for anything except maybe a key and chapstick. BRING BACK THE CELLPHONE-SIZED POCKETS! The peacock color is just so beautiful, so I am just really bummed.
