I am 5'2 and pretty curvy on bottom but my waist is very small, so I have a really hard time finding denim shorts that fit my thighs without massive gapping at the waist. I ordered these and the same pair in the lighter Swapmeet wash, both in my true size 26. This wash fit perfect in the waist and thighs (though I agree with another reviewer that the inseam is definitely shorter than advertised), while the Swapmeet wash gave me a huge waist gap. How could this be, when they're both 26?? I think the key is the rise. These are 10.75", while the Swapmeet wash is 11.5". The 26 measurement refers to the waist part of the shorts, so depending on where the rise hits on your torso, there may or may not be a waist gap. The Swapmeet wash had a higher rise, so it went up to the smallest part of my waist, which is probably closer to 24/25. This pair hit just below the smallest part of my waist (where the "hourglass" starts to widen) so they fit perfect. I hope this helps the sizing woes!!
