Rated 5 out of 5 by jpminpgh Elegant fabric, great fit
I picked up two pairs of these in-store. I probably wouldn't have given them a second glance on the website, so I am glad that I spotted them in person. The fabric is so elegant and high quality -- a hefty cotton with a pretty finish. Plus, they are so comfortable and the elastic waistband is done in such a way that you have a smooth finish. I sized down in these. I am 5'2 1/2 and wear a 26 in J.Crew jeans, but I bought an XXS in these. My usual XS had too much fabric, and the XXS was still fine around the waist.

Rated 4 out of 5 by namund1 love the style - fit is a little off
The style of these is absolutely perfect. Being able to slip shorts on and off in the summer is so much better than worrying about buttons and zippers. I love the style, the fabric, the colors. In my opinion these are the perfect summer short.
I wear a 29 in jcrew jeans, so I assumed I would be a large in these shorts. I tried the large on and they were enormous - the waist was loose and the actual leg opening on the shorts was huge (which has never happened to me at jcrew before. I'm a very curvy 29). I then tried the medium on and it was much more snug. I think if there was something in between the medium and large it would be a perfect fit on me. I did buy the medium and would buy every color in these if the fit was better.
Definitely try these on and likely size down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SJohnston Essential Summer Short
This is an effortless short! It's perfect to dress up or down and all the colors are beautiful!
I'm usually a 2/4/S in J.Crew sizes but the S was baggy and falling off me! I definitely had to downsize to the XS if that helps!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Amanda Great Quality, Not Sure About Fit, Give Them a Try
The quality of these shorts is great, the fabric and waistband are very comfortable, the colors are as pretty as pictured, and they are a perfect length; however, the fit is odd (for me at least). First, they run a little bit large. I ordered my usual SM, but the XS probably would have been a better fit. Second, these shorts poof out a little in the front and all around the waistband, creating a bit of a weird "poofy box" look; however, I think these shorts could look great on certain body types. Definitely give them a try if you are thinking about buying them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dominique A great pair of shorts!
I purchased these in 3 different colors (ivory, faded lilac & sea mist) and I am so glad that I did. They are cute and comfy. With a shirt or sweater on the outside, no one ever has to know that they have elastic at the waist. It's a great material, a good length, and they have slit pockets. I'm a happy camper : )
