High-Rise Denim Boyshorts in Maloney Wash

High-Rise Denim Boyshorts in Maloney Wash is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go-to denim shorts I hesitated about buying these shorts because of the one negative review, but decided to buy them anyway -- and I am so glad I did. The second I put them on, I didn't want to take them off! The denim is stretchy enough that they are super comfortable, and the inseam is just right (the butt stays in, but it shows just enough leg). The high rise is perfect and comfortable as well. For reference, I am 5'5, 125 pounds, wear a size 26 in madewell jeans and found these to be true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally found them! I’ve been keeping a look out for a pair of denim shorts and I finally found the right pair in these. I remember trying a different style last summer that hugged my butt and thighs in a way that was boyish and unflattering. I think they even made my legs look short. This pair is fitted without being a tight fit. They don’t completely hug my thighs which I find to be a better look on me (bought a size 25 and I’m 5’2”/105 lbs with a butt). The color is really nice too for a light denim (I’m very particular since I’ve always been a dark denim person) and the material provides a very comfortable stretch. My only concern is the bottom of the shorts could loosen over time as they are not sewn, but rather just folded over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth, soft, perfect I am so happy I got a pair of these shorts! They are soft to the touch and the perfect length. Can't wait to wear them all summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shorts This shorts are super comfortable and super cute. I haven't gotten a chance to wear them out yet, since they were an impulsive buy when I was on vacation to a very warm place. I've since been back in a very cold place but cannot wait to wear these out once it's warm enough!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shorts! I ordered these and I was pleasantly surprised. I was afraid that they would be too short, but they were just right. Also, I was concerned that boy shorts would run large, because I have to size down in boy jeans. Not the case. I ordered my skinny jeans size and they are perfect. They are darker than the ones pictured on the model, and more like the picture of just the shorts. They are a little stretchy and I would have preferred them to be that thick, rigid denim, like the Rivet & Thread denim, but still nice. Great price on sale!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality and sizing disappointment Highly disappointed by these shorts. Am height 5'4'' and normally a size. We're extremely tight against waist and thighs. They pinch the thighs in a highly unflattering and uncomfortable manner. I would recommend sizing up; however, the waistline may be large. Would not recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from would be cute, but fit too loosely! These shorts would be so cute to tuck a shirt into the high-waist, but they fit rather loosely in the butt and legs! They aren’t as flattering as I had hoped.
