Better than a fairytale.

Volcom designers read the classic tale of the girl and the bears, and applied that logic to the Frochickie series of flat-front shorts. The Women's Frochickie 5in Short hits the sweet spot in the middle: not too short or too long.

  • Cotton-elastane blend
  • Flat front
  • 5-inch inseam
  • Zip fly with hook and button closures
  • 2 hand pockets, 2 rear pockets

Looking good

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:Runs large
  • Height: 5'6"
    Weight: 170 lbs
    Size Purchased: 11

Love the length! I wear these to work at least once a week, they are really a good length to have shorts but not look inappropriate. I don't feel like my legs are too exposed, I can move without exposing anything. Real great.
Will be purchasing at least 1 or 2 more pairs

The only Negative is.. the material stretches!
if you are between sizes go down for sure. I will wear these for about 2 hours before they start to get stretched out in the waist, the legs aren't too bad as far as stretching goes.


Arguable the most comfortable short

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size
  • Height: 5'4"

    Size Purchased: 5

This is what i like to call the official women's shorts of summer. The frochickie comes in various lengths to accommodate any ladies style and comfort level. I have bought several of these for the wife and she loves them. 4 pairs to be exact. They have been making this short for almost a decade and just keep carrying it over into the next season. If it ain't broke don't fix it. You will love the frochickie.


Go Shortie!

These shorts are perfect! They are comfortable and just the right length. I've worn these shorts for so many different activities, they are very durable and great quality.


Good looking shorts!!

  • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it

The are great looking shorts in the front, unfortunately when you sit in them the back puffs out so far you can see the entire top half of my butt... Not made for my shape I guess.


Great shorts

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

These shorts are awesome- they're confortable and fit nicely, accurate to typical sizing. The material is super smooth and the color rich. I wear them everyday as a part of my yacht crew uniform. Would recommend highly.
