Laura Byrnes California High Waisted Shorts in Black

Availability: In stock

$62.00
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!

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. (Posted on 7/18/2016)

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! (Posted on 5/19/2016)

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)
