How Does it Fit?
Rated 4 out of 5
casual, but still chic
These are really cute shorts. I was looking for shorts that were casual but still chic, and these are it! I agree with the other reviewers in that the ruffle part doesn't really show up the same as the model, like you have to make extra adjustments yourself to make that ruffle part that way at a certain placement. Other than that, these shorts are really cute.

Not true to size
Usually i’m an xs in shorts and skirts from Babaton, however when I ordered these they were way to big. They fit more like a large.

How Does it Fit?
On the Fence
I like these shorts but I agree with another reviewer that it's difficult to get that ruffle gathering at the waist effect like the model. My measurements are 32C, 27.5inch waist, 37inch hips (I ordered a size S). On me the band stretches out at the waist, flattening the gathering and generating less ruffles. It feels like the elastic band isn't sewn down or secured under the fabric.

I believe you need to have a figure closer to an hourglass to achieve the model's styling, but the shorts are none the less airy and comfy. Nice enough for daily activities or the club. The floating wide elastic band may eventually get twisted around in the laundry though, so keep that in mind.

Good service and product always comes in good condition and packed very nicely.
Happy with the product but haven’t received my other order and it is been more than a month and still waiting!

Comfortable and cute with some issues
Comfortable and cute, maybe a little too short. I am not a fan of the waist as I have to adjust it often to get the gathered effect, the fabric tends to shift to one side. Stitching around the waistline instead of just the sides would solve the issue.

Super cute style. Are true to size. I got the modern taupe colour and the colour is harder to style in my opinion - it’s a weird colour. But I kept it because black was my only other option and I have a gazillion in black. The style was worth keeping!

Cutest summery shorts!
Absolutely love these shorts! The material is impeccable and the waist band is nice and thick. I am usually a size 25-26 in jeans, small in sweatpants and summer shorts and these fit perfect! I ordered a size S; a size M would've also fit nicely around the legs but the size S is very comfortable around the waist and I still have room around the thighs. I would describe my body type as small-medium average curvy! Hope this helps.

Love the shorts, I am usually a size 2-4 and lately having to size down the a 2 for shorts. Still quite roomy with the size down. Love these, definitely wearing them all summer

Everyday shorts
The elastic turns a lot in the shorts but the length and everything else about it is perfect!
