Didn't work for me
I'm usually a size 12. I ordered a 14 to have a more relaxed fit. These were so tight on my thighs and the crotch area...3 inches is really shorter than I thought. I definitively will order the effortless in 5 inches.

Anthem Short
I immediately noticed these on a sales associate in Tysons and opted to order/ship due to the long fitting room wait time. I'm 140-145#, 5'3", 29/30 denim, d cup and typically wear a size 8 and ordered an 8 after the suggested size chart recommendation. The size 8 was a bit snug (due to high waist) and with the longer zipper, the lower torso was highlighted. I reordered a size 10 which I prefer a bit of wiggle room. The fabric is luxe (no wrinkling, thick silk texture). I hope to add more to my wardrobe collection!

Perfect fit
Runs true to size, I got a size 0. Perfect for someone like me who has a small waist and slightly. curvier hips. Most shorts with more shapely hips tend to have large waistlines. Not these, they're just right!

The Best Shorts!
This is the best pair of shorts I have ever purchased. The fabric is light but doesn't wrinkle easily and has great sized pockets. They also fit like a dream! I took my measurements before choosing my size and I've never had shorts that fit me better.

Flattering on all levels
Have multiple pairs of anthem shorts and love how they flare just enough between the waist and leg to flatter your figure. The length also elongates your legs! As for sizing I am a 0/2 in effortless but can do 2 or 4 in anthem depending on how tight you want it)

A Size 10 is the New Size 4?
Honestly i was so excited for these shorts but i don't know if these shorts were mislabelled or what? Because i am usually, these days, a size 8 and i ordered a 10 for a bit more room. I couldn't even do them up which was very disheartening. My roommate tried them on and she's a size 4 and they just fit her... a size 10 fit a size 4. Sadly, this isn't the first time this has happened with Aritzia bottoms. Anyway, I will be returning but this seems to be a continued theme with Aritzia clothing lately. I ended up ordering different shorts in a bigger size because they were sold out in my size and this way i can get them taken in to fit me perfectly. still sad though.

Beautiful but very low quality material
I ordered these in brown and instantly fell in love. However, after the first wash the material started coming apart. I was so obsessed with these shorts I even air dried it. It started developing those bumps your clothing usually gets after years of washing. I could not believe it!! I heard a lot of great things about the Aritzia brand and never spent this much on shorts before. I was going to buy a bunch of other colors but definitely won’t anymore. I have the black Babaton wool shorts and those are amazing. These are extremely poor quality.

These just did not fit me well. The zipper is very long, and in order to wear the shorts high enough so that the zipper lays flat means my butt is hanging out the bottom of the shorts. Just not flattering. The Babaton Agency shorts are way better. Nicer material too (the machine washable ones).
