These shorts are nice and light and very cool. The material is ok, but I think it might wrinkle a bit. I had to go up a size, as my normal size was kind of too tight in the hip. If you are curvy you will probably have to go up a size too as there is no stretch in the material. I want them for a winter vacation we are planning. It's nice to have pockets on the side. If on sale worth the price.
