Pull-On Side-Tie Shorts

Pull-On Side-Tie Shorts is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy but not too frumpy Just got these today and can't take them off! I've been eyeing them for a while and had to get them when they went to sale in the navy. The ties have come undone a couple of times, but nothing a tight knot couldn't fix. I wear these as high-rise shorts and they're still long enough to feel modest and comfortable. I am 5'6", 130 pounds with a curvy downstairs but a small waist (usually a 25/26 in MW jeans) and the XS fits great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect, comfy, cute Denim shorts are cute but uncomfortable on my athletic thighs - these are everything I could want in a pair of shorts! Elastic waist fits great, xs (I usually wear size 0 or 25). Not high waisted but I can fold the waistband down to make them shorter for beach days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I Thought I was Getting! I ordered these in pink and blue, and they're exactly what I thought they would be. They're pretty casual, but the ties dress them up a little bit. The fit is a little loose, because I sized up. I think they should run true to size.I really do wish they had pockets, but these were great for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! These shorts are very cute. Saw them on sale and grabbed a navy pair without thinking much of them. Tried them on at home and had to go back and get the 2 other colors. The pink doesn't look like in the picture. It's darker but mute, more like dusty rose. Easy care. They came out of washer almost wrinkle free. Tips: untie the side ties before wash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All I want to wear Very cute shorts that wash well and I get a ton of compliments on them. I am 5'9" with a short waist and long legs and I love the inseam. Slightly longer in the back helps with modesty. Cute and comfy. No pockets is a bummer, however, the fit of these shorts is less bulky then the regular pull on shorts that have pockets. Love, love, love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Summer Shorts I had my eye on these for a while and when they went on sale I decided to try them. I'm glad I did because they're adorable! They are loose fitting shorts and the side tie does make them slightly tighter around the thighs. They feel very light and airy which will be perfect for the summer when denim shorts can get uncomfortable. The pink color is a bit darker than in the picture, but I like it even more. It's more a neutral pink vs. bright pink which I think I could wear with more. I am 5'4, 115 lbs and I purchased an XS.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy Super comfy shorts I can wear out of the house without looking like I'm wearing PJs. Love the ties on the side as well. I have a toddler so comfort is very important - looking cute is a bonus! The only thing is that they tend to ride up more to my natural waist so I have to readjust them occasionally. Would buy them again though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute and comfy, but no pockets! These are worth the discounted price. I am 5'4, 110 lbs, and usually wear a size 25 in pants. I went with the extra small, which are a tad loose on my waist but sit above my hips. I wanted them to be truly high waisted, so I sized up. They are a little baggy in the legs, like some said, but I am petit with a larger butt and a thinner waist, and they fit well on me as loose shorts. The first time I wore them I realized they don't have any pockets, which is very inconvenient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Alternative to Denim Shorts These shorts are amazing. So soft, adorable detailing with the side ties, comfy waistband...I'm pretty sure I'll be wearing these all summer long. They fit true to size (I grabbed a small and I'm a 25 or 26 in jeans normally!) and the leg openings are large enough to be comfortable AND flattering for more athletic thighs but not overwhelmingly baggy for slimmer gals. The material was a bit wrinkly out of the box and the color isn't quite as bright as the photos online suggest (I'd say it's more dusty mauve than the coral pink the photo shows.) Overall, super cute shorts that can be dressed up with heels or dressed down with sandals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! Based on the other two reviews I was expecting a casual, loose-fitting short and that's exactly what these are. The side ties are perfect and add that bit of styling these shorts need. I'm 5'5" and I think they're the perfect length - not too short, not too long. Like the other reviewer said, the color is a bit muted compared to the picture online and the material was wrinkled coming out of the box.
