Cheap material
I really dislike the crepette material. It is so thin and cheap looking, and you can see the back pocket outline. Please release white/birch colour shorts with the ReEssential material!

Super cute but not like the older ones
I think these are sooo cute! Perfect length for me since I’m 5ft. But I find this material wayyyy smaller than the other effortless pants/ shorts I own. Definitely size up if you want it to be more comfy!

Fits small
These shorts are great and I love the length. However, they are a bit snug so I will have to exchange them for a bigger size.

How Does it Fit?
Much smaller than previous Effortless Short
I purchased these with the intent of going up a size (2) from a previous pair of Effortless 3” shorts I bought a year ago that were in a size 0. For some reason, these shorts are much smaller in the waist - I could barely connect the clasps which is strange, because I’m a true 2 in my effortless pants. They are also much shorter in inseam by half an inch, maybe? They just feel a tad bit shorter which feels as though my cheeks are about to pop out any moment. I took out my size 0s and they fit perfectly with the inseam coming at 3.5-4 inches. The quality feels different as well. I would prefer my old effortless shorts over the new one. I plan to return these shorts and am sad I didn’t just return them for a size up when I initially purchased them in 2021. For reference, I am 5’3 - 25 - petite. Mostly a size 2 in Wilfred and Babaton pants and shorts.
