Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and flattering. I am Petite. 5'1" and about 112. I ordered these in green, XS. The fit is perfect. They are really comfortable but stylish and structured enough to be dressed up. Very flattering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST SHORTS I wear a size 25 in Madewell jeans and tried on the XS and S. The small are perfect!! These shorts are so comfortable and I love the style. Worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pockets!! I bought these shorts last year in the indigo and I wore them out! This year, I bought them in the olive and was so excited to find that they had added pockets! These are even better than last year!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable Short I always prefer a dress/skirt over shorts but that is usually because I can't find shorts that fit well. They are either too tight or too short until these style of shorts. I love madewell style and this includes these shorts. I will say I think $49 is high for these but if you can grab them on a sale I would!! I don't regret the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute, comfortable, but slightly expensive for what they are Cute, loose, comfortable shorts great for super casual summer day. Kind of expensive for what they are though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not linen, but nice comfy basic shorts As others noted, these shorts were labeled as a linen/cotton fabric at the time of purchase. This is very misleading, and not the first time I've seen such a thing occur (an item's description listing natural fibers and being sent a product with synthetic instead), indicating that it may not be unintentional error. While I prefer natural fibers in my clothes and am disappointed in not receiving the product I expected, I can report that I really like these shorts and will be keeping them. At the sale price I paid, I wouldn't expect high-quality linen regardless, and understand that synthetic fibers are less expensive to use. I got a M and it fits my 40" hips/butt nicely, and the pockets are substantial and structured. However this sort of thing makes me wary of making purchases in the future, as natural fibers (ethically sourced and used!) are important to me as a consumer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from False Advertising! I was so excited about ordering these shorts!! Linen is my all time favorite material for summer. I was so disappointed to check the tag on these LINEN cotton pull on shorts only to find that there is no linen in them at all! The name suggests linen and even the description says that they are linen and cotton. Instead they are cotton and viscose. Talk about false advertising. Like another reviewer i never would have ordered these knowing there was viscose in them. I will be returning these- so disappointed, madewell!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from They Aren't Linen Super excited to get my linen-cotton shorts except for one little detail: THEY AREN'T LINEN. They are 51% Viscose and 49% Cotton. Way to lie because you knew I wouldn't willingly buy rayon shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts I bought these shorts in the rust color and that are great! Very comfy, washes up well, and can be dressed up or down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect summer shorts These shorts are comfortable, easy to throw on, go with everything and my go-to for summer! So easy to look put together without even trying. Not to mention POCKETS. I'm obsessed.
