The best shorts
I absolutely adore these shorts. High wasted and not to short, I'm 5'1 and they are a perfect length. Bought size 0 fit excellent, usually a size small in lower body. Please re stock the black and beige, I'd like one in every color!

Stunning and Comfy
These shorts are amazing. I have a fairly square build with no hips and I’m smaller on the bottom than the top. Shorts and pants tend to be challenges as if they fit my waist, they look like wearing garbage bags on my legs. These shorts are just the opposite. Very flattering fit, comfortable and elevated enough to be truly stylish shorts. Love! Just wish I didn’t wait so long and more colours were still available.

Love these!!
These shorts are my favourite, bought a pair of paperbag shorts from another brand and these ones are so much better. The material is light-weight and I love that these shorts can be dressed up or down. The shorter length is so flattering and they fit as expected, true to size. Love the Basalt Grey colour!

How Does it Fit?
At least one inch shorter in length than prior version
I love the old paper bag shorts from prior seasons, Gelas and have it in multiple colors. Since 2022, these shorts have been cut way shorter, if you look at the picture closely you can tell it's missing the exterior hem and hence at least 1-2 inches of length. What made the old cut so flattering was the optimal mid length, really elongated the legs, please bring back the length on these shorts!

Poor quality!
After I wear it once, I washed them and surprise: they came out the washing machine with the unstitched edge on both side. Very unhappy for a pair of short at that price!
Otherwise, the shape was good and true to size!
