To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Fit is great. Stretches in just the right places. Update: I removed two stars because the stretches are in more places than the right ones. After wearing a few hours, the waist will slide right over your hips so you never have to unbutton or unzip them. Sounds great if a quick bathroom trip is needed but it isn’t great when your cell phone in your pocket causes them to sag and be uncomfortable. So if you buy these shorts, plan on wearing a belt or continually be pulling them. Size down!
They are ok. Not much in the way of spandex. After the second wearing they were down around the middle of my butt. They aren’t flattering even though they are two sizes smaller the last year. They are comfortable but so I’ll fitting. I’d never buy them again.
I ordered a size 6 because the size 8 I had originally ordered was large through the waist and hips. I kept the 8 in case the 6 was too small. This pair turned out to have the exact same dimensions as the size 8 pair in Oxford color. So two different pairs (color and size) were exactly the same size-wise. Now I am returning both. So, a word of caution, the sizing is not uniform, at least across colors (Oxford and Verona). The style and fabric were fine.
These fit well, look good. I prefer my shorts a big shorter but these will have to suffice. UPDATE: I ordered a 2nd pair of these in one size smaller, but they fit the same. My original pair is a 16 relaxed, I bought the 14 relaxed hoping they would fit a bit tighter. Even after washing they remain essentially the same fit as the 16. Having said that, I'll keep them because I need shorts and they aren't bad.
