This is very nice and great coverage. I ordered a large b/c I am 5'8" and 145. Recently, I got a large in the same brand compression shorts and they fit perfectly so I thought the same size (L) would work, but I definitely need a medium in this skort as it does run bigger than the shorts (maybe thats because it's not "compression"). It's very feminine though and you don't see the shorts underneath as the skirt part is longer. A great basic!
