Pearl Izumi Women's Escape Quest Short (Black) (XS)
They're tight, that's true, but IMO that's a good thing. That means if you order an XS you're actually getting an XS. Most times, an XS is too big. (I'm 57, 5' 2", 97lbs.) I'm keeping mine. DO note that they are *low rise,* regardless of the size you order. The only reason I'm taking off a star is because the fit isn't consistent to the hemline. The hemline is ever-so-slightly flared out. I would almost consider sizing up to a S but I'm afraid the hemline issue would be worse.

Pearl Izumi Women's Escape Quest Short (Black) (M)
I agree with the other reviews. They run small and the quality isn't as good as they used to be. I have another PI size medium and they fit well. I would size up if you buy them.

Pearl Izumi Women's Escape Quest Short (Black) (XS)
I don't know what PI is doing but these fit like an XS and I ordered a medium. They've redesigned these shorts or done something that they no longer work for me.

Pearl Izumi Women's Escape Quest Short (Black) (M)
I have to agree with the other review. These are much smaller than the pair I purchased a few years back. I am returning these.

Measurement Guide:

  1. Bust- Measure circumference around fullest part, across bust points, keeping the tape horizontal
  2. Waist- Measure circumference around the narrowest part (typically the small of the back where the body bends to the side), keeping tape horizontal
  3. Hips- Measure circumference around fullest part of hips keeping the tape measure horizontal

Measurement Guide Notes:

  • Use the chart to determine size
  • If measurements are between two sizes, sizing down will provide a tighter fit while sizing up will provide a looser fit
  • If the measurements for the chest and waist correspond to two different suggested sizes, choose the size indicated by the chest measurement
  • If measurements for hips and waist correspond to two different suggested sizes, choose the size indicated by the hip measurement
