High-Rise Twill Shorts

High-Rise Twill Shorts is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really great comfortable shorts I ended up getting my normal Madewell skinny jean size of 25, and they were plenty tight (but I wear my skinny jeans quite skinny). I have 36.5" hips and a 27-28" waist (real talk: depending on where I am in my cycle). They accommodated my hips and bum (in a form-fitting way, without much room to spare), and the waist isn't gappy. Super comfortable because of the lighter stretchy twill. Love them. The pockets do splay very slightly on me, but not as much as on the model. Probably depends on where/how they fit on your lady curves and how tight you're wearing them. I was prepared to sew them closed to prevent that, and it's not really needed, and I'm pretty picky about that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUMMER MUST HAVE The quality and texture of these shorts was on point! The color is a super rich blush which can go with anything! I am going to rock these with stilettos , tall gladiators , and my new tretorn.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute and versatile The olive green shorts are so flattering, especially from the back :-). My thighs are a bit bigger than most people of my size, and these are not too tight st all. I did size down to a 25 from at 26 to get a good waist fit. I'm 5'5", 120lbs, but at age 60, do NOT want super short shorts. These are perfect length. I gave 4/5 stars because there was a pocket gap with the side pockets but I wora a longer shirt that hid them. By the second wear, they flattened out. Get these!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great color for summer I think these shorts are cute and perfectly lightweight for summer. Slightly high waisted, and I like to roll up the short hems. I wear a 26 in Madewell jeans and the size 26 in these shorts fit me perfectly. Will be wearing these all summer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pockets are a bit odd Love the color of the shorts.. Like the prior review stated, they do run a bit large specifically in the waist. My one complaint is that the pockets on these shorts flare out a bit which makes them slightly unflattering if you have wider hips like I do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but run large I really wish I had gone with a smaller size in these. I got a 26 and I think I needed a 25 or even 24 to get them to fit my waist the way I would like. I should have known because most Madewell denim shorts run large in my experience. I am thin but curvy and usually have the waist gap problem in most shorts, but I think that even for most normally shaped people you might consider going at least one size down in these. I really like the pink color though and the style is modest, versatile and comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple staple I bought these shorts in my regular size 25 and they fit perfectly, not too tight and not too loose. The material is on the thinner side but it will be nice for when summer comes. The only issue I have is that the pockets are placed very far on the outside of the shorts making a slight bulge on either sides.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from VERY comfortable, but run large. I have these in green. They're very comfortable and not too short like a lot of shorts are these days. But I ordered these in my usual size and they were quite big. I for sure would have like to get a smaller size! But this is the first pair of bottoms I've gotten from Madewell, so I'm not sure if their sizing is just different.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Own both colors I own this short in both colors. They are comfortable, and very flattering. High waisted shorts and pants can be hit or miss, but these are definitely a hit for me. I usually prefer denim shorts, but decided to change it up this year-and am happy with these.
