I just can't win. You see, I need shorts. It's part of my go-to uniform and it has been plenty warm enough here to start wearing them. So I have begun my quest but you see, nothing at all fits at all. I'm the same size and weight as last year. If anything I am slimmer. But shorts this year seem to not work at all.
Boden's Bistro Short. I loved the navy floral print. I followed the size chart and ordered what I thought would be my size plus one size up, because one can never be sure and Iif I am going to wait two weeks for something to arrive I might as well order a plethora of sizes. Anyway. Both sizes were huge in the waist. The smaller size fir okay across my hips but was comically large everywhere else. Back they went, as even a size smaller would not have worked because ether it would have been too tight across my hips.
Next up were some shorts from The Limited. The nautical print seemed nice. Same story: too big in the waist, just right in the hips, embarrassingly bulky across my legs.
Now, Lands' End, I bit during the F&F event (and bought these shoes I had coveted, which turned out to be wary too tight across the toe). I also thought I'd try these cute citrus print shorts. Oh how deluded I was. Too big! Too bulky! A smaller size would have once again fit my hips but been too july everywhere else. Sigh.
other print they come in.
So now I await Gap and Banana Republic. I was successful at both chains last year; Gap Tall in particular seemed to work well. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
