Sizing/Fit for Little Beetle soaker shorts

I want to order a pair, but am waffling on the size. It says that Medium fits up to 11" thighs... DS's thighs are 11" at the thickest part, but the shorts look like they hit closer to the knee.. and in that case he could probably still fit in the medium.... but I'm wondering if I should size up to large instead... Any thoughts? Can anyone tell me what the waist/rise measurements are on the med and larges? How generous are the fits on these?

Re: Sizing/Fit for Little Beetle soaker shorts

I just e-mailed them this question. They told me that the rise on the Med is 16.5 and rise on large is 20. Too bad as we need an 18 inch rise! We had some smalls last year and loved them.

Re: Sizing/Fit for Little Beetle soaker shorts

My DS has an 18in rise and I went with the L because his thighs where 12in now are 11in. The soaker shorts fit great!! They hang nicely so the bigger rise isn’t an issue and they don’t go all the way down to his knees. Most shorts go past his knees so these are our new favorites! I wish they had a dark blue. We got the blue and I think I’ll be getting the purple and natural as soon as I can.
DH left his camera at work or I'd take a pic of DS in them for you.

Ds's rise is an 18 and the L fits perfectly.

Is their blue soaker shorts a light blue? It looks like it's a dark blue in their photo

My DS's rise and waist are both 17" so do you think the L would still fit ok? It would be great if someone can post a pic of their babe modeling a pair of these. Oh and where did you order the blue ones from???

Re: Sizing/Fit for Little Beetle soaker shorts

Here is a photo of a size L from last summer when DS was 2+, around 29lbs with 19" waist and 11" thighs:





At the time DS's diapers typically had 16 or 17" rises.
