Laura Byrnes California High Waisted Shorts in Black

Availability: In stock

$72.00
Want to own the best pair of shorts ever? You’ve clicked on the right product. These amazing high waist shorts feature an empire waistline (with a subtle curve at the top) and an elastic back waistband. The elastic is not only built for comfort and flexibility, but this means you won’t get sloppy bagging like most shorts do with wear. You’ll want to thank their designer, Laura Byrnes, for this amazing design fix, because baggy pants are what inspired her to design these perfect shorts in the first place.

Complete with side slit pockets, a stitched inseam and back zip, you’ll never want to take these off.

Made in the USA of imported goods!

When I first ordered these shorts, I followed the size guide and ordered an XL, which were FAR too big. I have a very hourglass shape and my waist is much smaller than my hips. The L fits better, but because of my ample bottom, the pockets don't lay flat. The fabric was also a bit thinner than I expected for the price. Overall though, I've received many compliments on these shorts and they are very comfortable. If you're curvy and between sizes, size down, the elastic back will accommodate you.

I was a bit weary of purchasing this online as I wanted to make sure I had full coverage at back. I am 167cm and purchased my usual size of small. I was not disappointed and happy with my purchase.

These shorts are fantastic! I wear between a 2 and 4 in pants and have about and 10" different between my waist and hips. A size small fits like a dream. Despite other reviews, I love the elastic. It's not noticeable and it makes the shorts for perfect on yor waist. Perfect for a BBQ or night out.

So these were the first "bottoms" I've purchased from PUG, and I should've ordered a smaller size. Most of my dresses are 2X (because I'm larger busted: 38DDD) and so I made the mistake of ordering my shorts in the same size. While they were bigger than I should of ordered, the tailoring/shape of these shorts, still make them attractive even when they are baggy. Since they looked okay, I decided to keep them anyway, and a few days later I purchased the denim ones I had on my waitlist. I love these shorts! The XL's fit perfect! They were fitted enough to show off my curves, but still comfy enough to move around and not worry about popping the zipper! Length is not too short, or too modest and can be dressed up or down. My only issue is I'm short (and short-waisted), so I do get a little bit of fold at the top. Not a big deal, I love these shorts. Got a lot of compliments too..

My favorite Shorts! They certainly accentuate your curves. The stretch waist will define your mid section perfectly but still allow you to breath!. They cover my thighs the appropriate amount, and I have a lot of thigh! They are very flattering. I'm a size 36-30-40 and I purchased a Large, as usual for me in PUG. Excellent Quality, but DO NOT use your washer/dryer to clean, i've ruined the sateen from mine.. Get them dry cleaned. The nice finish will be removed if you do it in the wash at home, and the structure to the shorts will become softer. I still wear them and they look good, but I'll order another black pair since the material is not the same as it was. I hope one day PUG's High Waisted Shorts will be redesigned in black denim!

I will admit, I was skeptical of the elastic. I love that the zipper goes down far enough in the back that I can get the shorts over my hips, but they're a bit shorter than I was expecting! Still love them, just won't be wearing them as often as I had originally hoped. Keep it up!

This is my second time purchasing these. THE BEST PAIR OF SHORTS EVER!!!!!!! I've always been extremely self conscious about wearing shorts because of my body shape, but these brought me back all my confidence! I can wear them with stockings for the cold Chicago weather! For reference my measurements are waist 28 hips 47 and I got a size Large and they fit aaaaaamazingly!!! Just get them!

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!

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!
