Westside Jean Shorts

Westside Jean Shorts is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from zipped pockets are very handy I liked this shorts enough to buy a second pair. I find it very convenient to have good size zipper pocket that can fit my cell phone securely. While I wear madewell jeans size 27, this shorts fit me best in size 26.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! Love these shorts. Great fit, and just long enough that I don't have to worry about thigh rub. As someone with a pear shape body, the high cut means that the shorts cut in after the butt, so I don't get the loose waist/waist gap that I do with other styles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shorty shorts Nice shorts, but I'm not too sure about the super high rise if you're not really skinny (I wear a 26). They are so high and kind of tight around the waist that it kind of makes a front pooch that I don't love. Probably won't be able to do the cool girl front tuck that Madewell models like so much. Other than that the shorts look good (my boo loves them) and hold up well. I took them on a 5 day trip and they looked just as good at the end as the first day.
