" These socks are brilliant. I have never worn winter socks before, just booties. My feet have been so toasty to the point where with a bootie they get hot (on 6 degree mornings).
Will get another pair. They also have size clearly labeled on the sole of the sock so they can't get mixed up.

 Assos Women's H FI.Lady S5 Waist Shorts
Assos Women's H FI.Lady S5 Waist Shorts
ASSOS performance in a lady’s cut and style. ASSOS H FI.Lady_S5 shorts have a shaped waistband, which is flat at the front and elasticated at the back, for comfort and gentle support.
 

Assos vs Sugoi sizing

Sorry to ask yet another sizing question. I have been wearing small Sugoi shorts, great fit. Pearl mediums are too big. Does that still equate to a small Assos? I am right in the middle for hips on the size chart between small and medium, but a small on the height.
