Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Even though it did not have my size, I still bought the only size left. Good quality material and nice design. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute slouchy shorts Cool, comfortable, a bright white, with a soft denim feel. True to the description, not too baggy, and not too tight, a nice balance. The distressing is masterfully done, and modest enough that I've worn it to work with a tailored shirt and jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WHITE SHORTS!~ I would never wear white SHORTS but these are fabulous only because of the distressed look. You still appear summery, crisp and clean with the rest of your outfit. If you want to look as though you came off a boat, these shorts are perfect with any top. My favorites are colorful tanks or oversized blouse with flats or sneakers. Super surprised by how flattering they appear and don't make you look BIGGER.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BUY A SIZE DOWN I always wear a 28 and I ordered a 27. They still fit a little big but it looks like how they are intended to be worn. Buy these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect shorts! I love these shorts - everything in the description is true. They are neither too baggy, too tight, nor too short! and I found the fit true to size. I am a curvy shape with solid thighs so I am conscious that nothing fits too tightly on my bottom half! I love the distressing and I've also purchased these shorts in the blue denim. They have already been worn numerous times so I know they will get a lot of use over summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the high-waisted fit! These boyshorts were a great Madewell find! Like the high-waisted skinny skinny jeans, they have a sexy high-waisted fit that look flattering on most anyone. I also like the ripped look of these shorts. I only wish they were slightly more comfortable, but you can't have everything!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Curvy figure go up at least one size I like these shorts. I ordered in 28 which is my size in the skinny high riser jeans. They were tight. There is no stretch in these. The waist was okay it was the hip and leg that was tight. To get the look of the model I might have even had to go up 2 sizes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bit too big I really like these shorts, but it looks like I'm going to have to do some exchanging for a smaller size. I'm 5'4 and 110 pounds. I'm a size 25, and these shorts are super big on me. I'm hoping a 24 will do the trick.
