How Does it Fit?
What Size Did You Order?

Love these shorts. They really are flattering with a slight flair on the legs. I bought a size up and I'm glad I did as they don't have much give. Best shorts I've owned in a long time!

cute but intresting fit
ordered two sizes up from my normal, and glad I did. the shorts fit interestingly. I would say they fit small but also large and here’s why.. so getting them up and over my butt they just made it but yet I have a massive gap once I do have them pulled right up and buttoned up. which fyi they have a button front closure no zipper which I didn’t realize. I do and don’t hope they stretch out because I wouldn’t want the gap over my butt to get any bigger but I wouldn’t mind having a bit more room to get them over my butt

New Go-To
I love these shorts! I'm usually a 30 waist (6 ft, 165 lbs) and I always size up in jean shorts for a not too snug fit. I didn't have to with these shorts! They are a great length for my long legs and hit right below my belly button for a great rise. They're comfy, not super stiff. I bought them in white also! Summer staple for sure.

How Does it Fit?
What Size Did You Order?
A great basic
I was looking for a high waisted white denim short that was casual but looked nice and had more of a relaxed fit; these were exactly that.

What's Your Height?:
5ft 8in
What's Your Usual Size?:
These shorts are comfortable, flattering and cute! My only qualm is that they gape at the waist.

LOVED them
Perfect shorts to dress up or down! What’s great about the denim forum is that once you find your size in one pair, you know your size in every pair! I bought the Yoko’s in store in my size but ordered these shorts online in the same size and they are a perfect fit.
