These Royal Robbins Back County women’s shorts have a very useful waist adjuster to fine-tune the fit. The nylon fabric may cling a little, but the flattering cut promises to give you a snug, shapely fit. These will keep you cool and wash/dry with no problems – you don’t really need to iron them. Perhaps too many angled pockets?
