Beautiful but...
Amazing shorts but while I would normally be an 8 or 10 in Aritzia, I needed a 12 in these. For reference, I am 5'8 and 160lbs.

Great shorts but
I tried on a size 10 in store and it fit well but when I ordered it online it felt more snug. I thought I'd wear it to maybe loosen it but so far, still quite snug. I love the color and the length, just disappointed in the size.

Comfy pair of shorts
I like the fabric, it’s perfect for the summer. Looking at the comments from other others, I ordered 2 sizes up, I am a usually a size 2 but I ordered a 6, it is somewhat loose but it allows me to tuck in my shirt for work.

Too small!
Runs too small... Small meaning I fit a 6 in Conan and other pants and smalls in others but these, like the other linen shorts are 2 sizes too small. So as the other reviewers noted, go up. TRUST them... I should have listened and not bothered! :)

Waist is too tight
I ordered my usual size 8, which I have in the effortless pants and they fit perfect. I was able to ge the shorts to button up but the waist is just too tight. The shorts first perfectly otherwise, but I wouldn’t be able to sit or be comfortable because of the waist

Very disappointed
I recommend sizing up 2-3 sizes up (if you are not a skinny female aka have NORMAL curves).

I am normally a size 2 or 4 in my effortless pants, in other clothing I am a small. I ordered the effortless shorts (linen) at first the 4 did not fit me (now I’m stuck keeping them because their return policy sucks - tags are still on them. Then ordered a size 6, thinking these will be fine - NOPE. I’ve just given up at this point because it feels that artizia can not get their sizing right. Truly makes me never want to shop here again. Your sizing should be the same across the board, and true to size.

If I could give the rating a zero I would.
