I've had slightly mixed experiences with the sizing on these style shorts (it's that cursed elastic), but THESE were awesome. I have been wearing these shorts all the live long day now, through work, evening commitments, and now I'm finally home. I can safely say that these shorts stayed comfortable and held their shape quite well throughout the day. I have a 29 inch waist and 38 inch hips, and the large fits, but could handle being a touch smaller in the hips. I have these in the white Harlequn in the same size though, and they're too big. Honestly, the only thing that prevents these from being a perfect 10 for me is the elastic in the back. Ugh. It changes the line in the back when your shirt is tucked in, and I'm not a fan. But otherwise I adore these. Please please please ditch the elastic??? I'd but every colorway if it wasn't there! (Posted on 4/29/2015)

Bought a size large and extra large. I am between a size 8 and 10, 5'4'', 140 pounds. The extra large was a little more flattering for a pear shaped figure. Awesome because you can dress them up or down. Very comfortable. Hard to find some decent high waisted shorts and these definitely hit the mark! (Posted on 4/18/2015)

This is the first time I have ever bought pants online. I'm 5'4" with a 30" waist and 45" hips, so it's difficult to find pants that don't gap horribly at the waist, or bind at the hips. I got an XL and while there is a tiny gap at the waist, it's nothing I would have noticed if I wasn't looking for it, certainly not enough to get a plumbers crack when I sit down :)
It fits over my hips well and is the right length to cover my booty while still being pretty short, and is overall very flattering. (Posted on 3/19/2015)

I bought these shorts at the Burbank store. I love these shorts they are snug but sexy. I bought a medium and usually wear a size eight. I bought these shorts to wear with a vamp top. They are very slimming and flattering These shorts are not short on me but I am only 5ft 2in. I am hoping other solid colors will come out soon to purchase. Great buy and the material is great.

These shorts are amazing! Perfect for an hourglass figure. Normally shorts are a nightmare for me - either they fit in the booty but are huge in the waist, or fit in the waist but I can't get get my booty in! These shorts embrace the booty! I ordered the XL - they're actually a little big in the waist but that's easily fixed with a few stitches. I wouldn't want them any smaller in the legs (they're far from tight though, just comfy - these were a special purchase for a music festival so I want to be able to move around a lot!) They're so pretty and flattering. I want the parrot print next (maybe when the exchange rate is a bit better for us Aussie girls!)

My measurements:

Height: 5'4"
Bust: 38"
Waist: 31"
Hips: 43"

I am not one to write reviews but these shorts are AMAZING! High waisted and very slimming!!! They are short but not vulgar, its the perfect proportion. I am 5'7 Purchased the size XL and I have a big booty so I was a little nervous about the purchase thinking they were not going to fit or my cheeks were going to hang out. Like I said as soon as I tried them on I was amazed at the fit. Totally worth it and will be one of your favorites! (Posted on 10/15/2014)

I am kind of in love with these shorts. I didn't realise they would be quite so short on the leg but they definitely cover my bum and they are super flattering. I have an extreme difference of over 10 inches between my hips and waist so I'm a small waist but a medium hips - I bought the medium and they are pretty comfortable. I just might try and get them altered to hold them in a little more around my waist - they bulge out a little around my waist when I sit down in them (only noticeable to me apparently!).
Overall I am looking forward to this summer in Australia - I will be living in these shorts! (Posted on 9/24/2014)

I am normally not a person who likes shorts, they usually make me feel self conscious. But, these shorts cover enough of my booty and thighs and still manage to smooth me out and feel comfortable. Never thought I would be a shorts enthusiast but I have change my mind! (Posted on 9/16/2014)

I bought these in a large- (measurements are 29.5 waist/ 40 hips). These fit REALLY well, and are fantastically constructed. I have bought high-waisted black shorts from Bettie Page and Steady and a few other places - but these are so far the absolute best. (I also have a short waist, so I'm very picky with shorts).

INVEST IN THESE. :) (Posted on 12/4/2013)

My waist is 32 and my hips are 41. I purchased a X-Large because I wanted to be able to move around with out showing my butt cheeks or pulling my shorts down after taking a few steps. You ladies know what I mean...the kind of shorts that look cute as long as you don't move around too much...but if you do start moving around they go up your butt and look trashy. Well ladies, these short will stay in place as you walk or bent down. The material is stretchy but still hugs your curves. The high waist is the best...it hides your belly and gives you a nice clean waist line. I was worried about the elastic in the back...I thought it would look like my grandmothers pants but it does not it looks very fashionable and super comfortable. Ladies not think that you will not get noticed in these short because they look very conservative...these shorts are classy sexy, because it hugs your curves with out showing a thing.....leaving everything to the imagination.

I bought these in red and white last summer, right after having my second child. I wore an XL then since I was still carrying the baby weight, but they were super flattering and I loved them. Fast forward to this year and I've lost 20 lbs! I wanted these shorts in black and now I'm a size M. (Waist 29 hips 39) These are a snug but perfectly flattering fit! Love them! (Posted on 12/4/2013)

These shorts are fantastic, I have a slender body type- small34B, 27, 36 and I ordered a small which fit really good. I love the back zipper and the elastic band and the pipping which make the shorts look good as well. I am very pleased with my order. (Posted on 12/4/2013)

This shorts are a wonderful clothing item to have in your closet. I have a bit of a mommy pooch but with this shorts it doesnt show at all. My waist is 33.4 hips 39 and I got an XL. It fits me wonderfully and not tight on my booty which I like and because of the elastic ruched panels I could probably have sized down to a Large if I want to show off my booty. Amazing quality and wonderful service. I will be buying the other colors as well :) (Posted on 12/4/2013)
