High-Rise Denim Boyshorts in Faded Black: Button-Through Edition

High-Rise Denim Boyshorts in Faded Black: Button-Through Edition is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my big butt and thighs. I am 5'7 and 165 lbs. These shorts are a must have if you have a big butt and thighs. My waist is smaller and the shorts hug my waist and give me moving room in the leg. The slits on the side are great, especially when sitting down. I think some people could size down. I got a 30 because I really wanted them to fit, but I think I could have gotten a 29 or even a 28. I feel more comfortable in looser shorts so I am fine that they are not as snug as expected. I will be buying more of these high waisted shorts for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FINALLY the hunt for stylish, not-super-short shorts is over. i wanna cry i'm so happy! finally a pair that properly covers my butt and feels comfy while still being super cute. i'm typically a 26 in jeans, but sized up to a 27 for these since i have a booty, and they fit great! can't wait to wear these every single day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Length I’m a 35 yo mom and I’ve been searching for jean shorts that don’t go up my booty. These are a perfect length w/o being too long AND they stay put on the hips! Get them. You won’t regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back in high school in the 90's again! The buttons are so retro but back in the day they were called button-fly not button-through lol. I already own Madewell's button Cali and skinny jeans in a similar wash and couldn't resist adding a pair of shorts. I think I'm supposed to wear 23 to get the same fit as the model but I prefer my denim shorts loose. The 24 is comfortable on with more relaxed leg openings (5ft & 95lbs) and since I'm short they look better rolled up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The shorts I never knew I needed I'm not sure how I've gone my whole life without a pair of high waisted black denim shorts! These shorts are extremely comfortable, are a great length and have such a good looking wash. They are so versatile - they look great dressed up with a cute top or dressed down with just a tshirt and sneakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect rise and perfect length I absolutely love these shorts. I am normally a 25 in madewell shorts and stuck with my normal size in these. I found them true to size (5'2" 108 pounds) and the inseam is most comfortable when left unfolded. If you want more of a cheeky look then of course you can roll them. I love the washed black look of these and the button fly. Gives them a vintage feel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit I love the fit and style of these shorts. The denim is soft and with enough stretch that they are comfortable, but they also hold you in. Fit TTS, I usually take a 28 and the 28 fit perfectly. The side slit is a cute detail. The ones on the model must be longer, because I was not able to cuff them without turning them into booty shorts, but I like them just as well uncuffed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect high rise and length! I bought these shorts in white last summer and was obsessed, so had to get them in black. They're the perfect high rise height and also not to short that your butt is falling out. I'm 5'7" and have them in a 25. Fit perfectly and love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shorts!!! Perfect length and so comfy! I had no issues with the side slits since I prefer to wear them unfolded. I wear a 28 in the 10" high rise jeans from Madewell, but went with 27 for these and found the fit to be perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! For curvy figures, size down These shorts are great!! The denim is thick and feels sturdy. I have a really hard time finding shorts that don't gape in the waist but aren't sausage-tight on my large thighs. I'm normally a dress size 2, and denim 25-26 at Madewell. I sized down to a 24 to get the waist to fit, and the rest still fits great. The pictures here don't show the side slits well, but I love that feature, I think it's very flattering for my larger legs. If you are a little more rectangular in shape and you like a looser fit around the waist, then your normal size or maybe even 1 size down still is good. For reference, I tried on a pair of the "perfect summer" shorts last year, but those were just way too big in the waist no matter how many sizes I went down. I would also LOVE to see Madewell make their other shorts in a curvy fit just like they have done with their jeans!
