Rated 4 out of 5┬áby Designer Crisscross Shorts
Sizing is bizarre. Love the look. Had to try 3 sizes and am a consistent easy fit normally, 0 with a 25" waist. The 0 felt two sixes too small. Ended up with a 2 as the 4 was gigantic so the sizing is just nuts. The look is fun but it's inconvenient to have to order so many sizes. Love the pattern. There are "hidden" pockets on the front and back, which is great. Easy to pair with almost any color. Very lightweight which will feel great in summer. Very short. Will be a lot of fun to wear going out in the summer. The threads may come loose with wear, as I can see some threatening to do that already.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby ColorMeGreen Runs VERY VERY EXCESSIVELY small
Just want to reiterate that these shorts run EXTREMELY small. I ALWAYS wear a 2 - I could barely get the 2 over my legs/ butt! And then there were SERIOUS muffin top issues - the only reason I buttoned them was to see just how small they were (thinking I might be able to wear them in the summer when I tend to lose a bit of weight). Nope. Not even close. I ordered a 4 & a 6 to be safe b/c these shorts are really, really beautiful. Very high quality - the embroidering is beautiful & the cut/ pockets are very flattering for curvy body types (although I had to do a bit of imagining since the fit was so small)... To give an idea, I am 5'3", 120 - my body is pretty curvy (big butt, muscular legs, narrow hips/ waist). Definitely grab ahold of these beauties but if you're between sizes, go to your larger size, and if you're consistently a size, go up 1 size. Also keep in mind that b/c these aren't linen pants, they're not going to stretch much if at all.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby BKchick Comfortable and stylish
I don't agree with the previous reviewer at all that they 'run big'. I think there's a lot of difference between sizes but I wear a 6-10 on the bottom because of my big booty and the 8 fits great. The 10 was HUGE. So there's that. Length-wise they hit right at the fingertips and don't cling at the thighs which is always a worry with shorts. They're nicely cut and the straight horizontal pockets are very flattering. My only worry is that the embroidery will come undone since there are already spots where it is a bit.
