Embodying the true spirit of the iconic Levi's 505 jean from the 1960s, these vintage-inspired cutoffs are featured in a true high rise fit and a rigid fabrication. Back pockets have a slight inward tilt to help achieve the perfect backside. Button fly closure.
First off, I am 5'7'' with long legs & a short torso, so it's super hard for me to find shorts that aren't too short. When I saw the length of the Havana Affair wash, I knew I had to get them, because they were short enough to still be youthful and flattering (I'm only 21) but wouldn't show my butt. I just received them and they are PERFECT! As per the other reviews, I had to order two sizes up (usually a 27, ordered a 29) and they are perfect on my legs, a bit roomy on my waist (but I figure that'll be good for half-tucking in shirts), and SO FLATTERING on the booty! I totally understand the hype of wedgie-fit jeans/shorts now! I'm not sure if all the washes are the same length as these (all the other model photos show them cuffed), but I loooove the length of the Havana Affair wash, as they're still short, just not butt-showing short. Will DEFINITELY be ordering another pair!
cute but run small!
So for reference I'm 140 lbs hourglass figure, almost always a 6/27/ small or medium, XS. In FP's loose stuff. I waited to see these in the store first because their descriptions have been way off lately. No exception with these. I sized up from my usual 27 to the 29 and I bought the Blue Cheer color. They are actually 99% cotton 1% spandex which I was thrilled about because I hate the confined feel of sitting in 100% cotton jeans/shorts. The inseam is long enough to cover my butt completely and still be tastefully sexy. I hate those cheeky shorts. I also love that the button closure is hidden behold the denim flap which gives it the appearance of a zipper. It's important to note that each color is different though. The Gray color they call Beat Remix was just like mine and the white are true cheeky frayed cut offs. I can't say about the others because they weren't in store. My advice, go up at least one size, they are great quality.
great shorts but size up!
I own the wedgie jeans in full length but in these I had to go two sizes up! I own the white. Normally wear a 27 and got the 29. Great quality and perfect fit once you go up in size! Fits great in waist and through the hip. No weird gaps. I also like that going up in size added just a bit of extra length!
I love them, but...
They definitely run small and you have to try them on before purchasing. I tried a pair on when they first came to stores and it was perfect! But now trying them on they seem different: longer and tighter. I suggest trying them on or purchasing two online to compare!
Levi's High Rise Wedgie Cutoff
I love these so much! They are definitely the cutest and look so well for the summer! They do run quite snug, so i would go up a size or perhaps two if you have bigger hips or a bigger stomach. I found them to be a good length and good around the legs, but a bit tight around the hips and even tighter around the stomach. I'm just so in love with them and they are worth it to at least try. They have that really cool vintage look to them.
Really wanted to love but...
I ordered these shorts 3 times because I wanted them so badly. But they just didn't work on me. I'm normally a 27, but I have a booty and thighs, so theses shorts did not work on me. The first pair i ordered (the 27s), I couldn't even button, the next pair I ordered (a 29), I could barely get buttoned, and when i did, they were unbearably tight and my butt cheeks were hanging out. The next pair (a 31) were too big, and then i decided to give up. I really wanted to love these, but they did't work well on me. :(
Cute shorts but size up
Wouldn't recommend these shorts for curvier athletic girls with a booty. I'm usually a 25/26 and decided to go with a 26 oh boy was I wrong! The shorts were super tight on my hips and butt. Not so sure I will reorder for a larger size because the cut doesn't seem to work well for athletic shapes with a small waist and larger hip size. Otherwise, the shorts are great quality and the color is beautiful!
