I absolutely love these shorts. I am very petite (5'4" and 96 lbs) and have been finding it difficult to find a pair of shorts that aren't so wide and slouchy that they make me look bigger than actually am. With usual jeans if I can find it, I order a size 23, but usually have to settle with a 24. Since these are 100% cotton, these shorts in a size 23 fit snug on me- which is a good thing because I like for jeans to stretch out to fit. The waist is fitted but the legs of the short are somewhat flared so they are comfy and don't squeeze your thighs. The back pockets paired with the mid rise give the butt a nice shapely lift. If you want a pair of shorts that fit and are casual but not slouchy, size down and get these! The way these shorts fit (sizing down) remind me a lot of the broken-in levi shorts that Jennifer Aniston wears in movies.

J Brand has a great line of denim, so I thought I could find a pair of shorts for my upcoming trip to HI. After trying a few I feel that they all fit the same - at least a half to full size larger than the jeans. The waist gaps a lot so that the shorts hang strangely and way too low on my hips. I have never been able to pull off the slouchy, boyfriend style as I am quite petite. The color and material of these particular shorts are gorgeous. I love the fading and distressing, but the fit is all wrong on my figure. Sadly, the search continues. . .
