The Perfect Jean Short: Daisy Embroidered Edition

The Perfect Jean Short: Daisy Embroidered Edition is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect is right! I absolutely love these shorts! I am not super into non-stretch denim, as it always seems to flatten my butt. But these don't do that. I am 5'4", 130 lbs. and normally wear a 4/6 or small in MW bottoms. I got these in a 28. They do not fit me snug around the waist - more in between slouchy and snug. Love, love, love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great high-waisted shorts These shorts are adorable, which is why I've gone through a lot of trouble exchanging them for the right size! Many of the reviews here said the shorts were cute but snug and to make sure to size up, so I did. I am 5'2 & 120lbs and normally take a 25-26. I ordered a 27 to size up and they were way too loose, considering how loose they were I decided to now order a 25. Which did fit and I could've worn but definitely a little snugger than I would prefer especially when sitting down. I am now waiting for my exchange to go through for the 26! Hoping they will be just right as these are the perfect length while also being the perfect high rise. I agree with the other reviewer that that daisies would be cuter in all white, but still cute none the less and seem like great quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Style! Bought these a few weeks and cannot wait to wear them this Summer (all Summer!). Shorts fit well, I went a size up, so they would feel more like a boyfriend jean shorts and they fit me perfect! They sit high in the waist, not tight at all, a little forgiving on the legs and they pair perfectly with mules, Birkenstocks (my fav!) and slip on’s. Bonus stars for the cute daisy print! Love these:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long enough to cover your booty! Love these , long enough that I do not have to worry and not to long for my daughter who is 5 ft. 1 inch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE I love these shorts so much, and I have never loved a pair of jean shorts before. The daisies are so sweet and make these shorts stand out. I sized up and they fit great. Aren't tight on my thighs but still hug my butt. 100% recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite Shorts! For reference, I am 5' 9" with very muscular curves. I absolutely love these shorts!! I went with my normal Madewell jeans size, and they fit wonderfully. They are a little bit tight on my butt, (which isn't unusual for me- I have one heck of a booty) but cover it completely and the leg openings have enough room to be comfortable without being baggy. They are definitely high rise- they go above my belly button. However, that is something I like. I look fantastic in these shorts- they are so flattering! I look forward to pairing these shorts with everything this summer- from cute blouses to my rugged Johnny Cash tshirts. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute but didn't work for me Really cute shorts, nice denim. I just felt like they were tight in the wrong places, so I'll be returning them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great length I've been looking for a pair of cut-off shorts that are not too short but also not too boyfriend-y. These are the perfect length and just look/feel like good quality. I ordered my usual size and they are definitely stiff (no stretch). On first wear, I found them to be almost too tight in the waist, even though the legs are nice and roomy. I decided to stick with this size because I don't think they'd fit correctly (they are high-waisted) if the waist was bigger. I'm hoping the waist loosens up as I wear them more, but regardless they are a really cute style and I know I'll wear them a lot! Also, the embroidery looked all white to me in the photo, but the flowers are white AND yellow (not quite as subtle). Not a big deal, but worth noting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So adorable I love the wash and the daisy embroidery on these shorts. My only complaint is that they kind of ride on your behind. I am not sure if they are meant to fit relaxed or fitted, but I bought a 24 and they are kind of loose on my waist, which doesn't help the riding situation. For reference I am about 105lbs athletic build. Either way, still love and received compliments.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun spring/summer print! Very cute high waist shorts with a fun embroidered daisy print to add to my summer collection. They are not stretchy AT All, however, so relative to your usual stretchy jean size, be sure to go up a size!
