Always on the hunt for work shorts which fit, are flattering and functional. So far, these are the best I've come across. Being a petite gal, it is even more difficult to find anything to fit the bill. They have plenty of functional, well thought out pockets, but don't go overboard. I also like that they don't have the big, baggy cargo pockets which are mostly useless and generally look sloppy. They don't gap in the back when squatting, are sufficiently stretchy and sturdy enough to not get shredded when a piece of lumber brushes across them! I would say they run slightly smaller than expected when compared to other shorts by many other brands. I am 5'1", 100 lbs and of athletic build. I ordered the size 0 which fits well so far. I haven't washed them yet. Great Job Dovetail ladies!
