Pull-On Tryout Shorts

Pull-On Tryout Shorts is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish there were more colours to purchase! These were a no thought add on to my cart because I saw them in the sale section, and have ended up one of my favourite things purchased from Madewell. They're a thicker material than I expected, so there's no chance of them being see-through, but aren't so much that you'll overheat in the summer. The pockets make them super practical as well. Love, love, LOVE these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and versatile! I am 5'2 and 110 for size reference and the shorts fit me TTS for madewell. Comfy throw on for going to the beach or you can dress em up with heeled sandals and a silk top. Can be worn low on the hips or high waisted; the drawstring is functional. Happy with this purchase and also happy with fact that I got them at 30% off!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy summer shorts Love the textured fabric of these shorts. I ordered both colors and opted for the blue ones. The XS (my usual Madewell bottom size) run a bit big but I am pretty sure they will shrink some after I wash and dry them due to cotton/linen fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful woven fabric! I ordered these shorts in both colors and was not disappointed with either upon opening them. One concern I had was the size. Before washing and drying I was really considering doing an exchange for a smaller size because the shorts seemed a bit baggy in the bum area. I bit the bullet and decided to wash and dry one pair in hopes that they might shrink a little due to the linen/cotton fabric blend. To my surprise, they shrunk down to exactly the fit I was hoping for. And the texture of the fabric is even more interesting now too. Beautiful, actually. These remind me of another high end brand which creates clothing with gorgeous woven fabrics. Definitely would not recommend sizing down. Get your normal size according to Madewell's size chart, wash and dry the shorts following the directions on the tag and fall in love with these as much as I have!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice fit Perfect length-- not too short and not too long. I have larger thighs and butt, smaller waist. Definitely accommodates well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Closet Must-Have I absolutely love these shorts!! The only reason why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because based on the size chart I ordered what should be my size and they were too big. I took the risk and wash and dried them and now they fit perfectly! I ended up getting them in indigo & black! Very comfortable. I love them!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute shorts just not for me I found these to run slightly large and they bunch up funny when you sit down. They wrinkle quite a bit. I didn't find the material to be anything special but they're not see through and that's a plus. They're priced decently but I didn't care for the fit.
