Jimmy Jimmy Shorts in Tiger Lily

So I've been stalking these shorts for a while. I've never owned a pair of Paige shorts before....but own probably close to 15 pairs of jeans. It's about time to branch out! I normally wear a 29/30 in Paige... how do these shorts run? I've heard "HUGE" to one size down. Nordstrom's has them on sale now, so I think it might be time to pull the trigger!

TIA!!!!!!!

I'd size down one at least (maybe even 2), but I don't like my shorts loose (not tight, but not baggy either). If you want them looser, I'd go with a 29, otherwise get a 28.

I accidentally sized down in my pair of Jimmy Jimmy shorts (thought I was buying a 29 and got 27) and I am actually very happy with the fit. I then bought a pair of regular length jeans in a 27 and love them. I went ahead and bought another pair in my TTS 29 and while I'll probably keep them, I do not love the super baggy fit as much. So, after my longwinded reply, I completely agree with what Christina has said. LOL

Also, how much is Nordstrom selling them for? Tiger Lily is

they are selling them for $89 (excl. tax and shipping though)...that's what's making the decision hard. add that on and you're at $100.

thanks for your replies!!

sorry this is a pet peeve of mine. they're boyfriend shorts, so they're supposed to be loose. that's the intended fit. size down 1-2 sizes if you want them fitted.

^ That's the issue I have with my 29s. I have aboslutely no problem wearing looser jeans; in fact, most of my Paige jeans fit looser but these just seem sooooooo loose on my waist that I'd be afraid to wear them anywhere outside the house. My 27s aren't super tight either so I'd probably be more likely to get 28s to get the best fit, for me.

I sized down 1 for mine and they are BF fit, not tight. To get a more traditional fit (not BF), I would need to size down 2. I normally wear a 30, mine are a 29.

just letting you guys know that cusp.com has these on sale for $52!! for some reason though i couldn't get to them by searching through the cusp site. but if you search for them w/in Google's shopping section and sort by price, you can click on them there and it'll take you to where they are at cusp. happy shopping!!!
