    Some pros - These shorts are durable, very pretty, and well made. The only issue I too had was like other reviews is it does run small which is a con. However regardless of the size chart in all honesty is tough ordering clothes especially dance clothes online. I’ve had many years of experience with Discount Dance & purchasing different Dance Wear. Just some advice it depends on the material. Some of the durability of material such as nylon & spandex usually feel tight when first wearing them. However for that reason continue use of this will eventually mold & stretch into the shape of your body. It also depends on ones size. Two people can wear a small , however 1 may have more curves then the other. We are all different even if we wear the same size. So Regardless in my own opinion & experience it’s best to up a size always. Especially if purchasing for a growing child. That way you get your money worth. Always measure a couple inches higher then the size you would usually wear for street clothes. These shorts in particular actually do run a bit smaller then most. If you ordered & it’s too small try to stretch it by tugging, not hard though, or place it on something all night that will allow it to stretch. Something wide enough to give it a good stretch without ripping it. Like I said it will mold eventually into your shape which is what happened to mine. Now they fit wonderfully. Just a few quick tips. Hope this helps anyone who is hesitant on getting these! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•

    The shorts are very cute and stylish if wearing just for looks. Howeve,r they need stronger elastic around the legs as they ride up significantly and unable to dance in them.

    I was looking to order a pair of high-waisted shorts for a performance and these are fantastic. Luckily after reading other reviews I knew that the size ran small. I would typically order a medium, so I ordered a large which fit perfectly. They are high, but also allow for folding down. Very form fitting which looks great. Has a nice sheen to them.

    I bought these so I could have a good pair of high waisted dance shorts. The only thing is, is that I can barely wear them because they always end up being very cheeky after a little bit of movement and I have to keep pulling them down. If that wasn't a problem they would be perfect, I love the fabric and they are very flattering.

    I wore the shorts in both black and red for different costumes. In the red, I wore an adult S and in black I wore an adult XS. The S fit me a little bit better, which is saying a lot considering that I almost always need an XS. For reference, I'm about 5'4", but very thin with a little butt. Also, some of the curvier girls in my group were saying that their normal size was WAY too small. The top of the shorts has a tendency to roll down or crease, so for these shorts to look good, you really have to keep your tummy pulled in. Though I didn't have a problem with this, some girls complained about feeling like their butt cheeks were falling out the bottom. However, in contrast, they are super slimming and cute, and look adorable with a crop top or bra top for either class or a performance. I will defiantly be ordering a pair to wear, as the ones I wore in the show belonged to my studio. In general, they are a great pick if you want super high-waisted shorts. Just order up a size for slimmer girls, and maybe even 2 sizes for curvier, big booty girls! :)

    I ordered a medium adult in these and I'm 5'6" and about average, but they were a little tight. They were cute and great quality, but I would love to see them change the sizes to fit usual Dancewear sizing if possible! Overall, I loved them and I love the Natalie brand!

    If you need white shorts, these are a great option. They are fully lined and as opaque as white fabric is going to get. The fit seems pretty true to size in my daughter's case.

    I usually find that most shorts are either too short, or too long. These shorts however are a perfect length! I enjoy wearing the high-waisted part rolled down, which might I add is very flattering. These shorts are comfortable and I definitely will be purchasing more of these in the future.

    For years my girls have been part of the school dance team. Each year they needed black spandex for performances. Each year we would go to the local sports store and get a new pair and by December, if not sooner, they were needing a new pair. This year my daughter and I read every review online of spandex dance shorts available and tried to choose the pair that would work best for her. These arrived today and she is so thrilled with mom's purchase. The leg bands keep them from riding up and the waist is high which keeps her hip bones from coming out the top and looking awkward. She loves how thick they are and knows that they will last!

    I'm usually a medium or a large but after seeing so many review saying it was small I got an extra large. I'm really happy I did because they fit perfectly the only problem I had was they are super high waisted on me. They go up to right under my chest. I don't really like wearing bra tops with regular shorts because I feel so exposed but these make me feel comfortable.

    I have become addicted to these shorts. I have owned them for about a year and I wear them to teach/take dance, under leggings and skirts, and even as swimwear! (They make an adorable retro bikini paired with a bikini top.) I love the coverage and comfort of the very high waist. Major pro: the waistline does not pinch like so many things so you get a smooth center line. I am 5'4, 125 pounds, with a booty. I usually wear a medium but ordered these in large because of other reviews. My dance students are wearing them in a metallic color for a competition piece and many of them needed to order up as well. Once you get them in the right size, they are quite comfortable (in spite of the front center seam which pinched me a little once upon a time) and they are not sheer. They do stretch out a little with time... I probably could have gotten away with mediums.... but they otherwise have held up quite nicely. I want them in every color!

    My twelve year old daughter bought these in black medium and they fit perfect - she usually wears a size 0/1 in junior clothing. She absolutely loves them! The fabric is comfy and seems durable. She loves the high waist look with a bra top for class. Would defintely recommend!

    I originally ordered these in a medium based on the size chart. However when they arrived, they were much too small. I ordered a large with the attitude that they would work for sure, and the size ended up working. But again, I had to send the larges back because the pink fabric was completely see through. In the future, I will hesitate to buy shorts from here because of my experience, as well as friends who have had this problem.

    I bought these for a show last december so comfortable and cute only thing is if your curvy it will rise in the butt area so try going a size up if your usually a small. But definitely would recommend this to anyone seeking stylish dance shorts

    I wear a med/large but had to return for an xlarge in these shorts. I am very pleased with the way they slim me down. I usually have the waist part covered and that extra high waist almost acts a slimmer. Will purchase again!

    I am 5"0 100lbs and since the other reviews said they run large, I ordered a Medium. They fit at first, but stretched out quite a bit around the top and bottom. I sewed the bottoms in and they are great now. I am ordering a small in a different color, hopefully they fit better. They look great.

    the size chart looked at though they should fit perfectly, so i was so upset when i got them. the aren't elastic at all and therefore there was no give, in addition to causing the waist to roll down constantly. by the way i have a muscular build 5'5 and 120lbs

    As a reference, I am 5'4" and 140. I ordered an XL because the other reviews said that the shorts run small. Usually, I would order a L. Unfortunately, the waist was far too large for me and the bottom was a little loose, but bearable. If you have a smaller waist, I would go with the size that you'd normally get. In my case, I would have ordered a L. On the bright side, I wore this under a spandex shirt and it helped create a nice, smooth line without creases.

    I ordered these shorts for a dance convention I'm going to. i wanted to stand out and look better when i danced. I usually wear dance clothes that range from child large to adult small. i read the sizing chart and measured myself and they were supposed to fit great! but when i went to put them on i could barley get them past my thighs. I'm soo upset and by the way I'm 4'9 and 105lbs.

    My daughter is 8 and wears a child medium/large. I ordered an adult xs which usually works w/some room to grow. These are so tiny she could barely get them on. I would say adult xs = child small.

    I'm a size 2-4 and so I figured the size small in these shorts would be fine since the size chart says small= 4-6. I was really excited to get these in the mail but I couldn't even get them on over my legs they were so tiny! I don't know how they'll hold up once I order some that actually fit but if I do decide to exchange them I'll have to get a large. Just for reference, I'm 5'5" 120 lbs.

    What size should I order?

    I am 5"6 and weigh 115lb. most comments say it runs small so what would be appropriate sizing?

    Unfortunately shorts are not sized by height and weight, like tights are. These shorts do run on the petite side and I would recommend comparing your measurements to the size chart listed on the item. Most importantly, you want to make sure you size off of the most accurate girth measurement, to make sure the shorts are proportionate.
