How Does it Fit?
Not made for curvy women:(
Loved the design and fabric and fit perfectly at the waist, but the pleating was too tight around my thighs and didn’t sit right. If a version of these shorts was made for women with more curves and longer waists, it’d be perfect. 5’10 at 160, with a 29” waist and 40” hips, for reference.

cute shorts
Love these shorts. Great for the office and casually. I'm turning 30 soon and don't like wearing 3" inseams anymore as it feels too young for me, so I love the length of these. I kept 1 pair in my true size, and bought another 2 in a size 6 so they fit like more of a high mid-rise. I found the rise to be slightly too short to wear as a high-rise (but I'm 5'7" and have a long torso), so sizing up helped with that.

I want these in every color. Absolute perfection. Perfect length, the fabric is so structured but soft, and very comfortable. I got my regular effortless pant size (size 4) and they fit exactly the same. Obsessed is an understatement

Chic and comfortable shorts.
Very well cut shorts, details are special - from logo stiching to a hidden card pocket inside the main right side pocket. Go well both with high heels and sneakers. Got them in Navy and Medium heather grey and love both. Recommend size was 4, I got 2 and they are perfect (I always get size down from recommend even though my profile reflects my true size)

My go-to shorts!
Really love these shorts! Great quality and material and true to size. They also machine wash very nicely (I wash mine on delicate). The length is very comfortable and the colour is true to the picture.
