My new favorite shorts
These shorts are simply amazing! They fit really nicely. I almost bought the longer version because I don’t normally wear short shorts but I’m glad I didn’t because this length is perfect. I often have trouble finding jeans and shorts that are foamy enough in the hip/thigh area but these are perfectly baggy. The 5 years bleu colour looks good with everything. I went up a size (normally a size 25) and they fit perfectly but I could also have gone with my usual size for a tighter fit.

Perfect jean short
These fit like the perfect short. High waisted, but not too high. Loose enough to feel relaxed and cool but snug enough to be cute. Wide opening at the bottom so not to pinch the thighs, especially when sitting these don’t pinch. I have found the fit is a bit different from colour to colour when trying on in store.

How Does it Fit?
Runs big
I ordered the yoko short in a 25 and the thigh area is SO tight, and I'm pretty tiny.
I ordered these in the same size and they're a bit big on me! They are cute though and I'm hoping they'll shrink a bit.

How Does it Fit?
Not for anyone with curves
I have bigger hips and thighs and these were just not made for me. I ordered my normal size and the legs fit nicely but the waist was HUGE. There is no curve at all, just a straight cut. For the price, the quality was fine but nothing special.

A little short, but very cute and comfortable
Bought these shorts last summer and they've held up very well. They've stretched out a smidge after a year of use, but not too much. I find them to be a liiiittle short, but my butt is always covered. Will be ordering another colour. I'm usually a size 25 (5.6'', 120lbs) and a 25 fit well.
