High-Rise Denim Boyshorts: Button-Through Edition

High-Rise Denim Boyshorts: Button-Through Edition is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exposed Buttons - I'm Hooked I went into my local Madewell to pick up a few things for an upcoming trip... my plan was to purchase the normal high-rise boyshorts, but I saw these in a photo in the dressing room and I just had to try them on. The fit is more or less the same as the normal high-rise, but the exposed buttons and whiskering just make a bit more interesting and flattering. After comparing, it was an easy decision to go with these. I ended up wearing them 4 out of 7 days in Mexico. They stretched the tiniest bit, but in the best of ways. I'm considering buying another pair to have on rotation this summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whoa I love these shorts Ok so I have the MOST DIFFICULT time finding shorts that I love, that fit well, and don't run up into my crotch. These are perfect. True, super cute vintage style! The only issue is that they run slightly large. I ordered my normal size 30 and I am going to exchange for a 29 and *fingers crossed* I hope they'll fit perfectly then. I seriously have 0 pairs of shorts for summer but this will be a staple for me now!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Material felt cheap The combined thin-with-stretch material and intense whiskering made these look like a very cheap pair of shorts. I find Madewell denim sizing rather inconsistent and I would require a 25 in these, though my usual normal size is 26. Compared with the other "perfect" short available, these appear considerably cheaper.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Comfortable I love the buttons and the high waist. I have a pretty small waist hip ratio. Size 24 has a pretty big gap on the waist but I don't think I can size down any more otherwise other parts wouldn't fit. I do not recommend them because they're not comfortable when sitting down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Summer Staple Love these shorts! The denim is soft and forgiving. I actually sized up for more comfort on my end. I love the details of the button closure. I've already gotten so many compliments and even my sister went out and got a pair after she saw them on me. Definitely must have!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excited for summer Great shorts! Nice quality denim and the button through fly really adds to them. I am a solid 27 in Madewell jeans and ordered these in a 26. The 26's fit me with a little room to spare. I'm 5'6 and when the hem is rolled like in the picture, it comes a good inch or two past my butt, and you can unroll the hem if you want them longer. Really excited to have these as a staple in my summer wardrobe.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good not great I was so excited to get these shorts- love the exposed buttons down the front. However, I was a little disappointed when they arrived. The color is just a little lighter than pictured and I didn't love the way they fit- didn't do much to flatter my back side. I am a solid 24 in madewell denim and ordered these in a 23 as per other reviews. They were a bit snug at the waist, would be interested to see if 24 fits better but I don't love them enough to try. Will be returning these. I wish the wash was darker, I think they'd look more flattering.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from How about more choices? I love the denim shorts with button fly only I'm not 20 something and would value Madewell giving options such as a 7" inseam. I talked to the manager of my local store and she has received the same feedback from multiple customers. I have a wardrobe full of beautiful Madewell clothes only I have to pass on these denim shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable! These shorts fit amazing and are super cute in person. I am 5'5, 130lbs and curvy. I usually wear a 27-28 depending on the brand but a 27 fit perfectly in these! I wish they made them in white!
