Style: 24701005 Color Code:
Stretchy seamless boy shorts with vertical ruched detailing all around with ruffles around bottom opening.
Despite the mixed reviews, I took a leap and purchased these in the charcoal grey. As other reviewers have mentioned, there were no cute frills at the bottom. I'm so disappointed, especially considering the price. Come on Free People! You are known for quality and style, but so many things you sell are so inconsistent! I'm losing faith in you...
Where are the ruffles?
These arrived today and fit me well. I am 5.7, fairly slim 34,28,36 and I ordered a xs. but where are the ruffles? I ordered black and ivory, they are not the same as the pictures. Looking at the ones that arrived, they are not sew the same at the hem. In the picture there is enough fabric sew in a way to make a lovely ruffle on the hem. These ones are like biker shorts. What a shame!
So cute!! but...
I ordered these shorts in black and grey in xs/s and the black pair fit perfect and look so cute, so I was excited to try on the grey pair and expected the same but they didn't have the flared ruche at the bottom like in the pictures or like the black ones I received. The grey ones were tight to my legs like bicycle shorts and they just didn't have the same effect so I will be sending the grey ones back. I'm not sure if this is how they are supposed to be or if there is something wrong with them but i'm super disappointed. I would like another color as long as they like the black ones and as are pictured.
Comf and Cute
these shorts fit true to size and are extremely comfortable and equally adorable. If you are in-between sizes i would recommend sizing down as they are extremely stretchy. The top waist band and the thighs are not too tight at all and have plenty of room. I ordered the army green color and didn't have any problems with the ruffles on the bottom as some other reviews mentioned. Overall loving these shorts
I bought the ivory colour for my home practice yoga. I can confirm that my boyfriend likes to sit in on my practice if I have these on. Sexy yet adorable and oh so sweet! They are high waisted too which lends itself well with the rouchin and ruffles, they almost look kinda victoran! Love love love <3
Perfect for any occasion
After reading the many mixed reviews for these shorts, I decided to take a chance and purchase them in both the navy and wisteria colors. I'm SO glad I did! The fabric is soft and stretchy, the ruching makes for a gorgeous silhouette. They're so versatile, not only can I wear them to yoga/dance, but casually as well. I'd also like to applaud Free People on their shipment time, to which these arrived in only 2 days! To contrast the negative reviews, my shorts have the perfect amount of ruffles, are extremely stretchy, and certainly do not resemble bike shorts. (Also, they are not see-through what-so-ever!) The navy and wisteria colors are even better in person, and a bit different than the pictures. Both are more cool-toned, or "dimmer" in color, which is exactly what I was hoping for. The model pictures are great, but they do not do these shorts justice when worn (there are no bumps/ too-tight areas on these shorts,like some pictures may portray.) For size reference, I'm 5"2, size 2-3 or 26-27" waist, 34" hips. The XS/S fit perfectly.
Cute and comfy but doesn't stay put
I had suuuch high hopes for these shorts and, to an extend, I am happy with them. I got the XS/S and man are they stretchy!! They didn't feel tight at all and that made them comfortable. That said, because they are not tight, they ride up a lot. I have a big butt and and a small waist. If I'm lounging and what not, the hems will ride up up my butt cheeks and will even get a wedgie. The frilly material at the hems make the wedgie even worse. This also makes me very self conscious about wearing them in public as they'll also ride up a bit as I walk. Aside from all of that, I love doing yoga in these and all the above are just minor annoyances. They're still really cute and comfy. I guess just beware! For reference, I'm 5'2", waist 26", hips 36"
