Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Distressed look for Shorts Smaller fit than other jean shorts but great distressed look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable Shorts Just go with your regular size that you wear for the skinny skinny jeans; it will be too small or too large if you don't! I found that it was a tad large at the waistline, but the smaller size will be too tight at the waist and at the thighs. Otherwise, fits great, should get softer over time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent purchase These are cute, fashionable, true to size, and feel soft and cozy. I hate buying bottoms online because I have a big rear and it is always a risk, but these fit to perfection. I do have a gap in the waistband, but that is par for the course with my pear shape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect distressed jean shorts These are distressed in the best way - just light fading and the rips. No whiskering. Nice length even rolled up. Fit great in the waist, no gaping in the back. One of the best pairs of shorts I've bought in a while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shorts I've never been a girl for shorts-- esp. since I have a curvy figure, so shorts are always a fickle concept. However not only are these shorts comfy, but the length and fit make your legs look great-- always a plus! These have become my everyday summer shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boyfriend fit I just got these shorts yesterday and I love them! I was on the fence about sizing since some reviews said to size down. I went with my normal size 26 anyway because I hate when shorts are too tight in the leg area. They fit just as on the model. I could have most definitely sized down to a 25 but I do not think they would be as comfortable. They are loose enough to be a boyfriend fit but not so loose they look sloppy. Out of the bag I was a bit scared because they looked huge! However once I put them on they were perfect. I am 5'6 around 120 lbs for reference. If you want a more snug fit go down a size, if you want them like the model go with your normal size.
