love them!
Super cute, a little uncomfortable when sitting but not bad. Definitely order one size down because they are a little looser fitting!

My favorite pair of denim shorts!
I firmly believe that every girl needs at least one pair of ripped denim shorts in her closet, and this is my pair! I wear a 25 in these (and I'm normally a 25 or 26 in denim) so I'd say these run TTS. Every pair of Levi denim is a little bit different, especially if it is a ripped pair, so if you are buying these online I would actually recommend buying 2 shorts in the exact same size. I bought my shorts in store and I brought 2 pairs into the dressing room, ultimately buying the one with the least 'dangly strings' because that's what I felt flattered me best.

Side note: Aritzia says these shorts are mid-rise but I'd consider them high-rise, if you look at the description the rise is 10.75" and I don't know about you, but that seems pretty high up lol!

I bought a size up in these shorts for a slightly looser fit and I am so happy with them! Don’t put them in the dryer though because they will shrink and there is no stretch.

I love these shorts however the rips in the front show your underwear:/

Not a bad buy!
Really cute and fit fairly high waisted, they do stretch out over time so you could potentially size down. Only complaint is I’ve only worn them twice and the distressed part of the shorts is almost gone leaving big holes.

Cute but extremely distressed
I'm not shy about distressed denim, but these are so ripped that you can see the crotch of your underwear through them. I like them and they fit well but a bit disappointing because it limits how much you can wear them out unless you want to safety pin the rip together.
