Hell bent for leather

I really want some leather shorts. REALLY REALLY want some!  Now my chase is on to find the perfect pair and I’m very torn at the moment.
Firstly, I think I need to try some on.  I’m not the smallest of girls and I don’t really want to to waste money on something that makes me look like an elephant! Secondly, I need to work out how much to spend on them.  From my hunt so far I have found the very cheap-
Faux leather from Boohoo

To be honest I’m leaning towards the more expensive.  The Boohoo ones look way too short for me and there’s not much difference price wise, in the real and faux leather from ASOS, although style-wise I’m actually favouring the ASOS faux leather.  It would be lovely to hear your thoughts.
I am struggling with size though.  Do I buy my normal size or buy them a size too big to eliminate the hoochy risk? I just don’t know!  Are there any leather shorts wearers out there that can help?

Edit: I went for the faux leather asos pair as they were my favourite style. Look out for a post when they arrive.

I like the look of the faux leather ASOS ones, the styles cute- not too tights & they look a good lenth to wear with some pretty tights.
I'm a size 14-16 and went for the 16 in mine and they fit well

I love leather too, i may get leather shorts as well ! I know it is hard to find things that fit, but you have to experiment.

I love the topshop ones. I was debating whether to get some from Primark today and when I saw them, they were horrible. I got some from topshop with zips on the front for 38 and they're really good quality material xxx
