So cute!
I loveee the babaton pants in this style, so wanted to try the shorts! I personally sized up and glad that I did. I am also 5”9 and was worried about them being too short but they were a great length!

Inconsistent sizing and fabric.
The sizing and fabric for this shorts are very inconsistent. I bought Kasha Tuape in size 8, Espace in size 10, and Halo pink in size 10. Kasha Tuape and Halo pink's use the same fabric, and Espace a different fabric. The fabric for Espace is much thicker in a good way, it feels much nicer than the other two. Halo pink size 10 is way too big, but Espace size 10 and Tasha Tuape size 8 feels the same and both fit well. I am so confused with Aritzia's sizing lately. In addition, I bought Babaton pleated shorts 3" in Poetic Pink 1~2 years ago, and really liked the fabric. Apparently they don't use the same fabric anymore. The Poetic pink pair I bought before was way nicer. That being said, I'm still keeping the Espace and Kasha Tuape, because I think they still look nicer than shorts from most other brands in similar price range.

Extremely small and inconsistent sizing
I bought the exact shorts in mocha brown in April in size 4 for a friend and I am typically a size 6. I read the reviews and decided to size up and got the cement blue in a size 8. When I got then in the mail they were extremely small and when measured against the size 4 they were around the same size, if not smaller than the size 4. Extremely inconsistent sizing and disappointing.

Inconsistent sizing
I listened to all the other reviews and sized up (I'm usually a 2) but the size 4 was way too big for me! I suggest buying these shorts in person so you know what size to get or order both sizes and just return one of them. Aritzia sizing has been super inconsistent lately. These shorts also felt very stiff compared to the Wilfred effortless shorts. Had to return them.

Runs small
Waist runs small. Usually a 2 but would go up to a 4 in these shorts. Would also do the 5 in. if I were to purchase again since they’re really short in length even for someone petite.

These have a bad fit!! Go for Effortless shorts
I loved the look of these shorts, but if anyone is like me who wants to compare the Pleated 3" shorts vs Effortless 3", I would go for Effortless. I am returning my Pleated shorts.

Pleated shorts fit too big on me. I bought both 3" shorts in 00 and Effortless fit perfect, the Pleated shorts falls down a bit and when I put two shorts together, the waistband for Pleated shorts is wider. Why??? Aritzia you guys should be more consistent about sizing. How can two pairs of shorts in the same size have different waist band width??

Tight fit
Size up!!! I am a size 2 in a the pant but the waistband fits much tighter on the short which was very disappointing since I cannot return :( otherwise the colour and length is perfect.

Love these flowy shorts
I ordered two pairs from the sale a year or two ago and loved them so had to order another pair in a different color. I went one size up from my normal size and they fit nicely with some room. Love the crepe material and flow of these shorts.
