Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Adorable I have nothing but love for these shorts! I wear them uncuffed and they're cute as a button. I always get compliments. A size 32 fits me perfectly and I'm a solid 14 in other bottoms from other stores. You can bet I ordered a second pair! ~~> Madewell excellence rides again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love ittt For once, a pair of jeans that don't make you look like a sausage. I have legs, I do a lot of sports. So I have toned legs. All madewell shorts are usually tight on me (perfect at the waist), too tight around my quadriceps. So these were a godsend. True to size! I'm 5'6'' and use size 26.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Summer Shorts! These shorts are exactly what I was looking for!! I was tired of my butt hanging out of all the shorts I had in my closet but wanted something that was still fitting and fashionable. Full disclosure they run BIG I tried them on in the store in a 25 which is my typical size and they were HUGE unfortunately they didn't have anything smaller in the store so I ordered them online. I was debating between the 24 and 23 but went with my gut and got the 23 and I'm glad I did they are perfect!! Fitted and a little bit longer but not too long. They are worth every penny. I'm 5'4 and 115 pounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 stars I returned these shorts and got a size down and I am looking forward to receiving them in the mail. They were too big in the waist for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from super cute, runs very big These are exactly what I was looking for- the length, the fraying, the faded blue for summer, the high waist. I like the relaxed feel of them, they fit on my muscular legs. But beware they run very large. I bought a size 24, but the number does not correspond to your actual waist size (if you were to measure around the smallest part of your waist with a tape measure), even though they're high waisted. Probably the waist is closer to 27 inches, no joke. So order down, considerably.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too high rise :( I wish the rise was specified in the description - it would have saved yet another trip to UPS. I prefer medium rise, and these unfortunately are high. The wash, fabric and destruction is excellent though; oh well, the search continues....

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs large These shorts run extremely large, which I guess was to be expected sine they are boyfriend style. For reference, I am 5'3", 95 lbs. and ordered a size 23. I thought going down for my normal size 24 would be sufficient but these shorts were big nonetheless. They were really cute though, I wish they worked out!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stretches a LOT I love the look of these shorts; the first time I wore them they were a little tight in the crotch area but overall fine. After that the shorts stretched a ridiculous amount, at least two inches in the hips. The stretch changed the shape of the shorts and now they just look odd and ill-fitting on me.
