Cali Kisses is one of my favorites by far! Their outfits are all adorable and yet they still have odd sizing. I buy Cali Kisses even though the sizing is risky for each piece and these shorts are just that. I ordered an XL being a thin thirteen year old and they were tiny! I could easily get them on, that wasn't the problem, it's just that the shorts were very short!!! And also, the waistband isn't tight at all. In class I constantly have to keep pulling them up. And even when I pull them up the crotch line inside the shorts is VERY high so it's incredibly uncomfortable at times! These shorts have weird measurements and if you wear the top with them the pair looks just like a bathing suit. They're stylish but I say you have to wear them with a leo when worn because if you where it with the top then it becomes very low cut in the back and it's uncomfortable!
Bought this and the matching top in the turquoise for my 7 year old in a medium. The material is very thick and lined like a bathing suit. This was unlike other dance wear I have purchased. The bottom runs on the small side so order one size up, however the top is a little big but not too big. Will prob get more wear out of the top than the bottom.
These shorts run very small. I ordered a child size XL which says its a size 14. My daughter could barley pull the shorts up. In regular clothes she wears a size 10/12. The shorts have a mesh lining (Like what bathing suits are lined with) it makes them thicker and less stretchy. These shorts arent like typical dance shorts that stretch. The size 14 fit like a size 8/10. Super cute dance outfit, but a waste of money. Upset that I bought these!
