Very cute, run very small
Love these shorts! Perfect length for a professional environment during the summer, comfortable and drape nicely. As others suggested, order up 2 sizes! I am typically a 0, sometimes a 2, and a 4 fit perfectly. Will be ordering in other colors.

Nice but run small
I’m typically a 4 in the effortless pant. I sized up to a 6 to get a slightly slouchy fit for summer…nope! They actually fit tighter than my pants in the 4! I will return and size up to an 8.

Worth the hype
I'm 5'3" and love the look of the 7" effortless shorts. They are super versatile and can be dressed up or down. The crepette fabric is hangs so nicely.

Love these shorts!
I love these shorts, especially for work in the warmer months!
However they fit very small - I wear a size 4 in the effortless pants and had to size up to an 8 for a similar fit in the shorts.

Cute shorts
These are cute but run small. Also they were just tossed in shipping envelope so the $98 shorts arrived all wrinkled

Not made for bigger butts!
If you have a smaller waist and larger behind, this isn't going to work.

An unhappy buying experience
When I bought these shorts, I went to the store to try them on, and I chose size 2 according to the size I tried on in the store, but the store didn't have the color online. When I received the shorts, the size was very small, completely different from the ones I tried on in the store. So I can't return it now, and I can't wear it.

Fave shorts!
I absolutely love these shorts, please bring them back in black!! I have a hard time finding shorts that fit my body and I love the longer length for coverage. Like other reviewers I sized up (I normally do in shorts), they are a bit loose in the waist but fit great everywhere else. I have done it all in these shorts (brunch, impromptu hikes, teaching, etc.) And they have held up beautifully. They wash very well too, and stains come out easily with stain remover. My one teeny complaint is that they like to ride up after sitting so I'm having to pick wedgies when I stand up or pull the legs down before sitting.
