These are thicker material than a normal Dolphin short. Almost like sweats, but not anything you couldn’t wear in summertime. I am 5’8, 155 pounds. I fit comfortably in a size 10 but I can also wear a size 8 if I want to look cute. I got a large and they cover my hiney and ride low which I am so grateful is coming back into style! I love the print of these shorts, it’s so unique. I am happy I ordered these. I’d say don’t screw around and let them sell out.
