Rated 5 out of 5 by from My absolute favorite! Wore these every day this summer, they fit like a glove. I totally recommend them, I hope they bring them back next summer too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shorts! I am forever searching for a cute pair of shorts, but never find much that fit me without making me look horrible. These are exactly what I have been looking for. They are casual and comfortable. I'm 5'9" 145 lbs., and ordered the large based on the reviews of liking a larger fit, but they were way too big. I exchanged for a medium and they are a perfect fit. Just wanted something cute to throw on when it's 95 degrees outside with a cute tank top or t-shirt and flip flops, yet not look sloppy, and these are it. Extremely happy with my purchase, and worth every dime in my opinion, as I'll wear them all summer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them These are just so cute. Period. Fit great, flatter the thigh. Casual but a bit more structure than most track shorts since they're linen - so they work with t-shirts or structured tops as pictured, and I looked forward to cooler weather so I can wear them with sweaters or sweatshirts. Lots of ways to play with these! The only thing that stinks is the price. Gimme a break. Then again, I did buy them anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Summer Short I have difficulty finding flattering shorts due to my booty but these fit like a dream. They are unlined but that is not an issue with sheerness, just a fact I think I would have liked to have known. They are perfect for walking around summer street fests, sitting on the roof, or even just running errands. I also appreciate the length of these as many shorts are made too short for someone w a butt and thighs. At Madewell I am a 30 in shorts, small in dresses, and medium in tops. I was unsure what size to buy these in and I went with a large for extra room and the added bonus of being able to tuck in. A medium would have fit just as well though, but without the loose fit I enjoy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfy casual I've been on the hunt for some comfortable casual shorts that are the kind you can just throw on with a comfy tee. These are great! I tried them on in store today and loved them. They are a linen-cotton but totally look like denim. I'm 5' 6", usually a 25-26 in jeans, 0-2, XS-S, I ended up buying the S. I liked the looser fit of the S.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from love at first sight I love these shorts and ended up getting them in both colors. I am generally not a fan of shorts but I love the cut of these. The way the sides come up at the bottom is really flattering. If you are in between sizes, I suggest sizing down. I am 5'10", 135 pounds and got a small and they fit perfect. They do get "wrinkled" when you sit down, but it doesn't really bother me. On my blue pair, the tag on the back was itching, so I just cut it out. I would have given this 4.5 stars if I could.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Longer and baggier than expected but very comfy These are much bigger in the legs than I expected but they are very comfortable. I haven't worn them out of the house yet but I think they look more like running shorts and I'm not sure how they'll look in a non-athletic fit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Strange fit These shorts look great on the models (as most things do), but I found them to fit strangely. I think the rise is too high for a pair of pull on shorts that you're supposed to tuck things into. I am on the petite, high-waisted side, though, so perhaps if you've got a longer torso, these would work out for you. I do think they are adorable, just not on me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great fit & first I absolutely loved these the second I tried them on.....and then I wore them for a 1/2 day and found the fit and look to change immensely :( They stretched out so much that it ended up looking like I was wearing a diaper in them....NOT CUTE! If you don't have a butt and don't sit down or move much at all, they might not stretch out. So unfortunately, these will be going back. Both bummed.
