I hate shorts. Hate them. UNTIL THESE. I have wider hips and carry most of my weight in my tummy thanks to my (absolutely freaking awesome) daughter. While I'm not in the best shape ever, I have worn these shorts postpartum through chasing after a wild 14 month old. Despite my weight fluctuation, they still look great and have washed really well. The high waist is comfortable and smooths my midsection. They don't stretch funky across my hips like most shorts do. THEY HAVE POCKETS. I REPEAT: THEY HAVE POCKETS! Gah! I just bought a second pair in black a couple weeks ago that's how good they are. I feel like they run true to the size chart. I'm 5'8" and 160 lbs and wear a large.
I love the high waist and fit at the waist; however, the leg opening is too big and flips out too much. If you have bigger thighs these would fit well but mine are smaller so it just looks funny. I would love them if you fixed that issue. For reference, I'm 5'2,115 lbs and got a size XS.
These shorts are amazing, they are the perfect length and my thighs do not look so thick. I am so happy I purchased 2 of these :) I have to say the thing I love most about these shorts are the zippered pockets.
I loved the look of these and thought the high waist in this double layer would be nice, but once I tried them on I instantly noticed how much fabric is all around. The waist band has too much give and so doesn’t fit snuggly enough and just too much loose fabric all around. Not as snug as in the photos. I am 5’2” and 116 pounds. I bought a xsmall so I can’t go a size down. Still they are very comfortable to wear around the house
I really love the think waist band! When I run or hike, they stay up and I don’t constantly have to pull them up like other shorts I’ve had in the past. All of the pockets are a plus too, great for holding my keys, phone and cards when I’m on the go!
