Rated 5 out of 5 by Lauren My new favorite pair of shorts
This is the most perfect pair of high-waisted shorts! I've always had trouble finding a pair that were an appropriate length and not too big in the waist and these are a dream! The waist fits completely true to size, and the length is not too long, and not too short. I also love that they aren't too tight through the thighs and there is just a little kick at the bottom that is very flattering and slimming.
These are the best thing I've purchased all year and if there were more denim washes or patterns I would buy every pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 23yo perfect fit for athletic legs
I usually have much difficulty finding shorts due to my athletic legs and smaller waist. I usually wear a size 29 jeans, and could fit in both the 27 and the 28, but chose the 28. 5'6" 150lbs. I tend to have to buy shorts in multiples sizes bigger in order to accommodate my legs and have the waist taken in. These fit me perfectly in the waist and NOT tight in the legs! Yay! I would have liked the length to be slightly longer, but otherwise perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SOShh Sleek, flattering, retro-style high waisted shorts
If you have a small waist relative to your hips, or a curvy shape, these will be good for you! I'm usually a size 25 in jeans and a 0 or 00 in some shorts. These are true to size and remind me of a vintage style high waisted short.
Like another reviewer mentioned, I feel some shorts are too straight/tight in the upper thigh but these flare out slightly enough to be flattering and comfortable.
You can wear them with a shirt tucked in or out. I love wearing belts but think these could do without the belt loops.
For me the length is a tiny bit long in the front but perfect in the back. (Cuffing them once makes them too short in the back.)
The high rise and side zip creates a sleeker front that accentuates a small waist/curvy shape.
I bought the white too but would prefer they came in black.
These replace most of my old denim cut-off style and chino shorts. They're just that much more attractive. (Please make them in black!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by DancingLeaf flat waist chic shorts, finally!
These shorts were love at first try! Finally I found a pair of shorts that lay flat at the waist and don't give me a fake bulging belly! I have tried almost all the shorts offered by J Crew over the years. I own a 3 pairs of the chino shorts (3", 5", 7") and the Harbor shorts, all size 00 or 000, they all stick out at the tummy because of the thick stiff waist band even though my waist is only 23". These denim shorts do not have that issue. They come up high in the waist and they lay flat at the tummy while standing up and sitting down. The length is perfect - not too short and not too long. The slight flare at the opening helps to make the legs look longer and leaner. For reference, I am 5'4" 100lbs. Size 24 fits well with a little room. I could probably go down to 23 if I wanted a more fitted look. I have not washed them yet but plan to wash and dry in hot hoping they will shrink a little.
