Garment-Dyed Cutoff Shorts

Garment-Dyed Cutoff Shorts is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fab Absolutely love. As an adult woman, I need shorts that come to mid thigh and these do it for me. Runs a bit large. Order one size down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So big! I wasn't sure I believed the previous reviewer, but these do indeed run quite large! I typically wear a 27 in Madewell denim and bought a 26, but could imagine a 25 would fit as well. They're super lightweight and soft and the green is a lovely color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shorts Perfect shorts for me. I am quite curvy and have a butt so it is hard to find shorts that I love. These are amazing!! I usually go between a 27 and 28 in madewell and these were a 27 and still a bit loose (in a good way).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfy summer shorts Bought these for a summer trip and now wear them every day. Very soft and comfortable. They run large which I like for a more low on the hip fit, but I would buy a size down if you want them to fit your waist like your jeans. (I normally wear a 29 in jeans, I bought these in a 28 and they are still pretty big!) Buying another pair!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Size down! I tried these on in the store in my usual size 26 and they were enormous. They did not have the 25 in stock but they ordered them for me. They are perfect. I probably could have worn a 24 but I hate shorts that are at all tight. Cute, comfy -I only wish they were not so high waisted, but I still really like them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute and comfy Tried these on and found that they run two sizes large (!). Once you find the right fit, these are super comfy and lightweight. I think they'll be great in the summer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shorts but runs large Would agree with the other reviewers that these run large, I'm normally a size 26 in their jeans and got these in a 24. They aren't overly baggy or clingy when you size down, there's enough room for your legs to breathe which I like. The fabric is soft and comfy, and the green is a pretty light moss color. I didn't see the pink in store, but I'll definitely keep my eye out for them next time I drop by, would love to see these in a dark beige/golden color as well!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Weird fit These shorts had so much potential, with the great style and green color and a little pinch of stretch. But I have to agree with other reviewers that they fit oddly. Usually wearing either a size 26 or 25 in Madewell jeans, I opted for the 25. The rear fit nicely, but the waist and thigh openings were loose and the crotch was very baggy. The 24 fit better -- wow! -- but the fit was still off. The leg openings would ride up as I walked, and the shorts were short enough already. Maybe the 25 was my true fit, but who wants a super baggy crotch? Sadly, I had to return them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Adorable cut off shorts I was so bummed when I tried them on and they were way too big :( super cute, great quality but big. I ordered my reg size ... not sure what happen!
