So 2 pairs of shorts from ASOS arrived this morning (ASOS | ASOS Chino Shorts at ASOS) one in navy and one in beige/stone, and I'm contemplating whether to send them back.
Since I'm a very inconvenient 33" waist, I had to get the 34" ones. (most brands do waists in steps of 2") Thing is, they're kinda a bit too baggy for my liking, and they can't hold up at all without wearing a belt. (It sucks that some fabric has to bunch up at the sides because of the belt tho)
For comparison, I do own an older pair of shorts that's 32", but they fit a little bit too snugly, and make sitting a bit uncomfortable. (nothing too pain inducing, but after a couple of pints of beer, I would be regretting the 32")
So do I take a chance and send them back in favour of the 32" ones or do I suck it up and keep wearing the baggy-ish 34" with a belt? Cheers!
Go for the 32, you can always send those back too if they're too small. If so, try looking elsewhere - H&M does 33" waist shorts.
Honestly...I'd say drench them with water and throw them in the dryer. It'll shrink them a bit!
That's what I do if I can't find the right size haha. But if not, then yeah...go for the 32 :)
Ok I'm gonna go ahead and send them back to get the 32". Not too sure if they'll end up being wearable at all, but it's worth a shot. I'll update you guys once they arrive :)
