My summer faves!

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:
5' 3"

I have many pairs of these shorts with the 4-inch inseam (super flattering for petite gals, I’m 5’ 3”). I find these to be super comfortable even when it’s very hot outside. They look cute with tanks, tees, and boho tops. The corduroy material is very lightweight and has some stretch. I consider these true to size, although as mentioned in other reviews, the waistband is generous. I think this just adds to the overall comfort. I throw these in the washer and let them air dry.

Oahu’s are my fav short

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have so many pair of Oahu 4” and 2” shorts! I love them. And this yellow color is great! I can’t wait to wear them. As soon as it stops raining UGH! :)

Waist runs big!!!!!

The waist on these was way too big, which is surprising given the bikini bottoms I bought were the same size. I was disappointed they were a final sale, so I could not return or exchange them.

Short staple!

Love the fit. I accidentally bought a size up from the other pairs I have so they are a little roomy but I’m loving them for days I need extra comfy! Color a little darker than I imagined but it works. Maybe burnt burgundy.

I wanted to love

I love this style and material. However, I am usually a 6 in pants and shorts as I have a muscular behind. When I got the size 6 the waist was HUGE. so I ordered the 4. The 4 was so much tighter, I could barely get them over my bum but the waist was good. So I had to send back both. I wish the waist sizing was more accurate. There was a lot of discrepancy between the two waist sizes.

Cutest shorts!

For reference, I’m 5’7”, 139 lbs, and ordered size 8 in the color fawn. I also ordered the Oahu butter shorts in a size 10. This short material is not as soft or stretchy as the butter short, but it’s still comfortable and very cute on! The sizing was correct for both this short and the butter short (although the butter short is softer and stretchier, it seems to be sized a bit small compared to the regular Oahu short). The fawn color is a dark dusky purple, and this shade goes with more tops than I anticipated. It can be treated as an almost-neutral. Highly recommend!

Great color short, with just enough give.

Fit is great, with just enough give. Interesting color, I got lots of compliments! I am 5 ft 3 in, 125 lb, athletic build. I am short, so I cuffed these as they are a bit longer than I thought, next time I will get the shorter length.
