Love. Fit similar to the elevate shorts. Took me a day or two to realize the pocket is on the compression short under the top layer. Just a heads up!
Love these shorts! I’m a true medium but I probably could have sized down in these. Overall so comfy and cute! Great quality! The hidden pocket in the shorts underneath is a great bonus!
I had purchased Swift shorts in like the very first model, and didn't love them, but decided to try the redesigned version since the Surf color was on sale/being discontinued. The color is such a pretty teal, love it. I'm usually a size S in all leggings but thighs are my problem area and that had been my issue with my original Swifts, so I sized up to a M instead. I'd say depending on where you carry your weight, if you're close to being in between sizes, or you like your shorts looser/not tight, you might think about going a size up. The spandex waistband/lining make the shorts still feel secure, but the outer layer is looser how I prefer my shorts.
I ended up having to size up just because what I had ordered was actually sold out, but with the drawstring they still fit okay. The inner lining shorts do ride up a lot, but it's a little better if you put your phone in one of the hidden pockets. The surf color is super pretty! I hope y'all will make more stuff in that color. I probably won't ever run in these (because of the inner part riding up so much), but they're perfect for long walks or hiking!
Such a pretty color. True to size
