        I love the fabric, the prints and was swayed by the great reviews, but sadly these didn't work for me. At 5'4" and 115 lbs I seem to fall between 2 stools size-wise as the 4 was too loose and the 2 too tight. So sorry to send these back.

          These are great little basic shorts with a great fit, flattering flat front. I ordered the long for just a bit more coverage at my age, but they are still short enough to be cool for the pool or boat. I ordered the Brown Riviera and Navy Bloom which are great patterns and a step up from basic solids! Love them!

            My summer wardrobe was overdue for a serious refresh so I ordered 4 pair of these shorts (solid black, solid blue, blue paisley and the multi-stripe). Absolutely love them. They're quite comfortable, can be dressed up or down and I particularly like the deep back pockets for holding cash/cards, mobile, etc. I'm at the tail-end of losing some post-pregnancy weight and these shorts have only fit better as the lbs have come off. Really glad I took a chance on these.

              LOVE these shorts! Love them so much I bought 3 other pairs in different fabrics! They are great. The length is perfect. There is a little give in the fabric. And they don't cut in at the waist (causing that unsightly roll that other shorts do). Highly recommend!

                      These are nice enough shorts. The fit in size 4 is true to size. But I don't like the mid-thigh length. I have to roll them up, otherwise I don't like how they look on me. Still, well-made shorts, I can roll them up, so I'm keeping them.

                        I am glad that I bought these. They are very comfortable and the design is pretty. The fabric is soft and durable. You can dress them up or wear them to your child's swim meet of track and field event.

                          I love the bright colors of the stripes and received many compliments when I wore these. They run a bit big. I ordered the 8 and kept them because I wasn't sure and didn't want to wait any longer. I thought that they might shrink when I washed them but I ended up following the instructions and washed them in cold and then line dried them so they didn't shrink at all. I still love them!

                          So bummed that these didn't work on me. With my apple-body shape (upper hips/belly are bigger than my butt), getting a waist band that was big enough to work with me (14L in my case) meant that the legs kind of flared out and the slash pockets (never a good thing for curvy ladies) gapped pretty bad. They were stretchy and seemed comfortable, but they looked awful on me and didn't work at all. Plus, they only had Navy in my size and I should have known that they'd look like a kid's school uniform. Oh well. The hunt for good shorts continues.
