High-Rise Denim Shorts: Button-Front Edition

High-Rise Denim Shorts: Button-Front Edition is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful high waist The color of the shorts with the copper buttons are perfect. These will look great with a crop or shirt tucked in. Favorite shorts for the summer, I love them! For reference I am 5”5 and 110 lbs. I purchased a size 25. They have a classy fit and are not to tight. I would consider them short as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shorts! I love these high rise shorts. They are so comfortable! These are also not tight on my thighs which a lot of jean shorts are for some reason. They are also very soft and worn which makes them perfectly lived in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy! I love these shorts! The exposed buttons are so cute. They are so flattering, especially for girls with some curves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and Stylish I have a love/hate relationship with jean shorts, I never seem to find the perfect pair. These are a big exception. They are stylish (love the exposed button fly and high rise), easy to wear, and comfortable. I like how you can roll the cuff up or down and the wash is great. I bought my normal size, 26. I haven't had a chance to wear them past trying them on b/c it's too cold where I live still, but I'm hoping they keep their shape. For reference I'm 5', 105 lbs, and curvy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The shorts for a curvey girl I have tried every cut-off short this season. These are perfect if you have curves! The little bit of stretch makes them fit both my butt and waist. They are long enough to be appropriate cuffed or not. I couldn't be more happy with these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection It was too late for me to snag a pair of these cuties last year, so, I bought a pair today. I live in Houston, so, they will be perfect for the summer. They are very comfortable and stylish. I'm 5'10", 126 lbs and bought these in 25. The material is great and they look fantastic. Get them before they are gone!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Perfect except... Like the other reviews say...these are perfect and very cute. My only issue is that I take a few strides in them and they bunch up around the crotch! I would have to keep pulling them down all day. Sadly returning these.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost perfect I have a thin waist, big hips and big thighs. Shorts are always tough for me.. to get then to fit everywhere. These fit my thighs great and did for the most part fit my waist... But they're SO high!! Really wish Madewell's shorts weren't all 10" rise!! I'd probably by 100 of them if they could make something other than high rise. One can dream..
