Rated 5 out of 5Â by mitch5119 Should have stuck with my size
I made the mistake of sizing up (I think a couple reviews suggested so) and they ride up my waist and thighs like crazy. Other than that, they are comfortable and cute. The smocked material grants you some space in the shorts, which is why they fit a bit looser.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by LilyOfTheValley AWESOME layering piece
Got these shorts in size S, 2 different colours and I am so glad I got both. The shorts are gorgeous, so great for layering, high quality, just wonderful. Fit true to size.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by caterinaisland Very easy
A lot of the Free People aesthetic is easily pulling together versatile, unique, and comfortable pieces and this is definitely one of them. I love wearing the rust colored pair in contrast with a striped sweater and boots/flats when I'm just at home and doing errands/walking the dog. You can easily wear tights underneath them and it won't look bulky or strange if you were to wear the shorts under slips and dresses like the voile trapeze slip. They also look great with slightly oversized tee shirts or high-low tees. Just beware that the ivory and lighter shaded ones can be see through, so that's why I got the rust. You can always wear jean/cord shorts over them if you do get the lighter ones if the shirt is too short to cover your butt!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by deerheart loveee great for layering, too
Got these in palace natural and will order in multi, too. The petite fits amazing, i am 24'' in FP shorts 25'' in FP jeans 5'4'' 105 lbs. Perfect for sleeepwear, too with the smocked printed crop top
Rated 5 out of 5Â by tesshall23 LOVED so much, I bought it twice
Yes, I bought the exact same outfit (these bottoms in ivory with the matching top) twice. Let's just say they were not kidding about the lay flat to dry bit; I accidentally put mine in the dryer, and they are now tiny. But I love the outfit so much that I have reordered both pieces in both the ivory as well as the red.
As for fit, I am 5'3" 108, and I bought both in a small. XS fit as well, but the small adds a couple of inches in length and this gave me the option to wear them as shorts as well as under dresses.

Â by ciliaviktoria Sporty russian doll.
Me: 5.1 tall. Petite and curvy.
- The red ones look so cute, like a russian doll.
- Comfortable and cool. Perfect for festivals!
Not so good:
-If you have juicy thighs and a curvy body these might make you look bigger. This might not be a bad thing though.
I did not purchase these just because of this, but they will for sure look great on a skinny body longing for some more curves.
- I really liked the pattern, but the fact that they look sporty was not really my thing. I would probably have purchased these if the model was a bit more chic.
Picture of me wearing it is to be found at my blog, if you're interested. Search for Cecilia rosell blog + free people.
Hope that helps!
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Beachinchick Multi Shorts
I got these shorts in the multi and the colors are very nice, but I'm not crazy about the fit. They were tight in some places and baggy in others, and I couldn't really find a top to go with them that looked right with the pattern and material, plus they kept riding up on me when I walked. All in all just not a piece that works for me.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by anniej great summer piece!!
love these shorts! Not even sure yet what the heck i'm gonna wear them with(probably lots of things), but i have to keep them b/c they are so different than anything i've seen in a while! I'm 5'7 112 lbs, and am usually a size 25 in pants and I got the XS, they fit perfect. They have ALOT of stretch, i'm assuming that I could have gotten the small and they would have just fit a little more relaxed and longer b/c they are that stretchy. More maroon than red. If you like this style, you will love them!
