Rated 5 out of 5 by love these shorts! Fit great and great color - bright red! not too tight, not to skimpy, but not baggy either. I have worn them 3 times before a wash and they have not stretched out at all! May 20, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Love these shorts. Super comfortable. Some reviews have said they are too short, but they were a really good length on me...although i am pretty short myself! May 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Flattering shorts I am typically wary about the fit of the few shorts I ever buy. Mainly because it's sometimes tricky finding a pair that is a little on the short side (for shorts) and doesn't make my thighs look big. My legs aren't thick or overly muscular-looking, but they're not stick thin either. I bought these shorts in the red and love both the color and the fit. I like to wear them with untucked, loose button down shirts. Looks great with shirt tucked as well. I'm 5'8" and the length is great. I am normally a 27 in jeans and the shorts fit the same, true to size. I recommend! April 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by great color! this was officially the first item i ever ordered from madewell and i'm very pleased. the color is lovely and the material is soft. i'm super anxious for it to finally be warmer so i can wear them often. they are definitely short, in fact i don't think the way they hang on the model really indicates how short they are, but i don't mind! i typically wear a 28 at j. crew, but got a 27 in these shorts and it's a nice fit - a little snug, but i bet they will stretch some.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cute Shorts These shorts were a bit 'shorter' than I expected. But they are not booty shorts by any means and the red color is really nice a bright. These will be a big feature in the summer wardrobe! I ordered a 26 and I am 5.7" and 120lbs. March 24, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great color! Love the color and style, however, they are a good bit shorter than they appear on the model. March 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by nice shorts I really like these shorts because they fit well, are comfy and I loved the Scarborough Red colour. However, the shorts were way shorter than I expected! Judging from what the model was wearing in the picture when I ordered them, the shorts looked like they had a 4 inch inseam. The product description on the website actually states a 2 inch inseam so my fault but there should have been a better picture that reflected the actual shorts. June 6, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Be Cautious of the colour running/tranferring. I have these and the scarborough red skinnies, and be warned, the colour transfers, and will run in the wash, even on cold! I did a vinegar soak for my skinnies, and should have done the same for the shorts. I got a small spot of food on them, and wiped them with a damp cloth and the red transfered on the cloth with a small wipe (didn't rub excessively). As long are aware of this you'll be fine. I do really like the colour, look and fit. June 5, 2013
