Flowy mid-rise shorts featuring floral applique detailing with mesh insets. Wide smocked elastic waistband.
Runs large, under shorts is a MUST
I'm usually a size 6 in pants/skirts, sometimes 4, but I got this in XS and it fits very comfortably. Before I wore it out I kind of tried it on and noticed how short they are on the sides... I did an experiment by moving around and see if it's possible to wear without under shorts, and the conclusion is that technically it is possible to walk around normally even raise my both of my arms up high without revealing my butt (this is when I pulled it pretty high so it covers my belly button), but it is very risky (definitely dead if it's windy out). I ended up taking the risk and wearing it because that day's activity was mostly indoors. But halfway through I decided that I was too worried all the time and ended up wearing a cardigan that was super long on left and right to cover it up a bit. The shorts are really pretty, not really see through, but wearing under shorts is kind of a MUST.
Cute shorts but...
The sizing is a little weird. The XS is too tight and the small is a little big (i'm 5'6 and 122 pounds). Also unfortunately I have now ordered them TWICE and BOTH times they have sent me the WRONG color.... was hoping to wear them for an event this week... very sad :(

Favorite Fest Shorts
For one, these shorts are very comfortable, with their expandable waist and airy fit. They're also very flattering. They cover your tummy and give you curves in the right places. I bought these in the rust and blue colors and pair them with cute crop tops.
CUTE & COMFY
I love these shorts!!! I got an XS in these because they run large. Very large. The waistband is extremely stretchy and comfy.The side slit is a bit revealing and the length is quite long as the sizes go up. Nonetheless, these shorts are so comfortable and cute with plain tees. I got the Blue color and it is gorgeous. Planning on getting white as well. For the sale price it was a great steal!
These are very cute, very comfy! I got them in a medium, but could have gotten a small. They have an elastic waistband, so the fit is roomy. I think that the small would have fit me better in the length, they are a bit long on me, I'm 5'3". They are a little revealing, but I just wear little, neutral colored boy shorts underneath. I got them on sale, so I'm pretty happy with them. I don't think that I would have paid full price for them, though.
Cute as a cover up - not shorts
I got the orange and the color was lovely and very cute. However, these are extremely revealing and don't hide anything (ie you can fully see everything because of the looseness of the shorts). So while I do think these are cute I would only wear them as a cover-up at the beach or lounging around my house. These are lined which is nice and the fabric quality is also nice but the wideness of the leg openings and the split on the sides does make them entirely too revealing imo for regular wear. I did not find them overly large. For added length size up otherwise your regular size is fine. If you are looking for a cover-up go for it. If you are looking for shorts it depends on how much you like to reveal. If you don't mind everyone easily being able to see your butt completely through the shorts then go for it. If you are a bit more modest then you might want to select a different pair.
