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 4 out of 5┬áby luckykittin Great Style, Runs SMALL!
Great stylish, shorts! Love the unique pattern and shape of these, I only wish they fit. I'm typically a size 0 or xs in almost everything at Anthro (I"m 5'3, 100 lbs) After taking one look st these on the floor, I could tell the 0 would be way too small, so I tried the 2. The 2 was also too small, and unfortunately the store was out of size 4. After special ordering the size 4 and having them sent to my house, I tried them on and they were WAY too big. This label needs to work on their sizes! :-(

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.
