Pros: Great Green Pattern. Great Material.

Cons: The legs flare-out instead of tapering in or just straight. The waist is good. I thought about altering it because I love the material but decided to send it back.

Lovely, but a touch too short!

Pros

  • Comfortable

Cons

  • Short

Best Uses

    The product fits as advertised, and the fabric is beautiful. However, the short is quite short,and the longer version is too long. I wish Boden -- and others! -- would remember that "fingertip" length is often the most flattering. I'm going to have to have these lengthened a touch.

      Nice shorts, good quality, the pockets at the front can get opened rather than stay flat, but it is not too bad. It runs a little short if you are hourglass. I am normally a 6, but with curves, so got an 8 for better fit.

        These shorts are so cute I cannot wait to get to wear them this summer. They are so cute that I bought the pencil skirt in the same fabric.

          I'm 5'6" and a typical Boden size 16. These shorts fit true to size, but not much wiggle room. I have a straight waist and these shorts fit great. As a 38 year old, I went with the long inseam for a bit more thigh coverage. The floral fabric has a touch of stretch.

                    Love these. The colors will let it go with lots of different tops. Love the length - not too short or long. Feels like they are made well, too.
