Pull-On Shorts

Pull-On Shorts is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 89.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and Comfortable Size Purchased - Small Body - 5'4", 120 lbs, Curvy on the bottom Can't express how much I love these shorts. The fit is great. They're lightweight, cool and comfortable for Texas summers. Very versatile and can easily dress up or down. Pockets are icing on the cake! After buying my first pair in Autumn Berry, I'm already on the hunt to buy all the colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect "run-around with kids" shorts I ordered these in M and L in the black and berry colors. I ended up with the Med in both colors. I usually wear a 30 in Madewell jeans, occasionally a 29, and a 10 in other brands. They are so soft and comfy. They aren't too short, so I don't worry about flashing anyone when I'm running after my twin toddlers. They also do not accentuate the mom tummy. For the price point, the style and quality is there. I don't worry about getting them messed up with sticky toddler hands, since they are easily washed. I also like how lightweight they are, since they'll pack easily for tropical vacations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute casual short! Love these shorts, I got them in the black and light denim. Perfect basic for a casual summer day. Just the right length, on the shorter side, but not too short. Cute and comfy and... they still flatter your bum. : )

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Why oh why did I not find these when they still had the dark gray in stock in my size?? I love these!! I’m usually all dresses during the summer but now I’m Mom of two boys and shorts have become a little more necessary. Love a good pair of denim shorts but was looking for some alternatives when I found these. The material is great - soft but substantial. It also lends itself to being easily dressed up or down. I’ve worn them with a whisper tee and also with one of my central shirts front-tucked. I love the pull-on style (postpartum helpful!) and the pockets! I’m 5’6”, 140lbs and got the small. Fit well and length is nice, not too long not too short. Definitely going back for more colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfy So comfortable for Summer. I have a hard time with shorts having a curvy rear and thighs and these are the perfect alternative to denim shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great shorts; they will shrink to become true to size I ordered my second pair of these shorts this summer-- I lived in the army green ones last year. They're great for dressing up or down because they're so nondescript and cool. This year I got the navy blue (Baltic blue) color and when they arrived they seemed to be running large-- a little longer and looser than my first pair. After washing with cold water and line drying, they shrank a bit to become true to size. I'm a 29 in most Madewell, 5'10 160 lbs, and I am comfortably wearing a size medium in these shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stellar comfort short These have become my go to shorts. 5'5", 125 lb, usually 25 in madewell skinny jeans, and the x-small fit perfectly. Super comfy but still look nice. I'd definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will be back to buy every color I am 5'11,around 165 pounds and I have never found this style of short that 1) fits my bottom heavy figure 2) not too short around your bum. I bought a size medium and they are the most flattering shorts I've ever purchased, I will be back to buy more of the colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best. Shorts. Ever. I have a hard time with shorts since I am in my early 50's and go back and forth about whether or not I should even be wearing shorts. They are usually too short, and I'm not a fan of the bermuda/longer shorts. These are literally PERFECT. The picture does not do them justice. The material is wonderful, the length is perfect and they are so comfortable. I am definitely going to order them in every color. They run pretty true to size, maybe a little on the big side. BUY THESE - you won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Pull Ons! These shorts are the perfect pull ons I’ve been looking for. They are not baggy in the butt like others I’ve tried but instead have a nice shape while still being a pair of comfortable shorts. I plan to buy other colors!
