Patagonia Wavefarer Board Shorts - Women'sis rated3.0out of5by2.
Rated2out of5byfromrun super smallThese run really small, but oitherwise are fine. I'm a size 4 in normal clothes, XS or S. I wear 4 in my lemon workout gear, a small in other athletic clothes. 5'6" 128 lbs, athletic build but curvy. I could not even get the sz 4 on, went up 2 sizes to an 8 and are still tighter than I want.

Rated4out of5byfromThese run small this year!!I purchased a pair of the Wavefarer Board Shorts last year in a size 2 and they were a bit big. I heard they are running small this year so I went in to try them on. Wow! They are much smaller. I had to go up a size and they are a bit on the snug side. I tried my 2 on again from last year to make sure it wasn't me that changed. These shorts are easily 1 1/2 sizes smaller than last years models/colors. I tried them on in each color and had the same problem with each. Beware if ordering on line, size up one to two sizes.
