These shorts are great, big, but great!!
I was able to snag a size 2 in Cinnamon while traveling Colorado only to realize they are just too baggie for my liking. I was grateful Backcountry had 1 pair of size 0 left. I couldn't find another 0 on the net either! These shorts are comfy, that beachy kind of comfy. They have a laid back feeling with perfect amount stretch. Please size down if you can get your hands on a pair, you won't regret it.

Shorts for adults!
Alright, I'm guilty. I already own two pairs of this short. They're soft, cute, and actually feature a nice inseam that doesn't make it look like I'm wearing booty shorts. The raw hem is stitched, so it won't come undone throughout the life of the short. I bought the mojito and the opal. The mojito is less of a mint and more of a sherbert green, which is fine but not great. The opal is more of a light pink than the faded off-white I see on my screen. Bonus points for that! I usually wear a 4 in the average pant. I wear a 2 in Prana. I ordered the mojito in a 4 and it fits great, but a belt makes a huge difference. I ordered the opal in a 2, originally to test for size, and found it a better fit. I'm keeping both. And as soon as pebble comes back in stock, I'm nabbing those as well.

These fit exactly as shown in the picture if you buy the correct size. They are meant to be loose fitting and comfy. They are a great length, in my opinion. Not too long, not too short!! The material is so comfortable that I can hike, climb, work, and lounge in them. Definitely gonna wear these all summer long, and might just buy another pair!

I will wear these all summer...
20 years ago I found a pair of men's corduroy pants at the thrift store, cut them off, and wore them almost every day for at least two summers. I haven't loved a pair of shorts since then until now. The are soft, low-rise without being too low and comfortable. Sizing is a little flexible... I ordered the cinnamon in my normal size (4) for my first pair. They fit similar to the model - a little baggy but super comfortable and perfect length. I decided to get the Azul and ordered in size 2 and 4 to see if the 2s fit better, and they are both good - just different. The size 2 are a little shorter on me because they aren't down on my hips, but have a more tailored look. Husband likes those better. I personally think the 4s are a little more comfortable, but not as flattering. I'm going to keep them both.

Comfortable but not perfect
These shorts are comfortable and colors are pretty, however there is some weird bunching up of fabric in the crotch., almost like there is just too much material there. I bought 2 pair and I'm returning them both because of that issue.

Love Comfy shorts
Bought three pair of shorts, one worked. Two the same in different sizes and colors. Aqua in sz 6 ran way smaller than the olive in sz 4. Keeping the olive. Enough stretch for comfort and not too much so that they feel like bike shorts.

I have them in both colors and have been wearing them all summer so far. The material is quite nice and comfortable however they are not the most flattering pair of shorts I own. They tend to bunch in the crotch some though a smaller size may not.

cute not flattering
These are super cute and comfortable however I am returning them. They do some weird puckering on the backside and I don't need anything to accentuate my rear in a bad way! I tried a pair on in the store and they did the same thing. I was hopeful that maybe it was just that pair hence, ordering a pair here. Bummer!

Very comfy but not cute
These shorts are very basic and great if you're looking for comfortable, but they aren't particularly cute or flattering. If you have an old pair of cords, you could just cut them and have the same thing.

Comfy and flattering
Really like these shorts - have them in both goldenrod and fig! They have a flattering fit, but still comfy with just the right amount of stretch for mobility. These will definitely be one of my go-to pairs this summer.

These are on the short side, but are a nice accessory to tanned toned legs. Gave these as a gift. Size 2 was perfect.

Love love love these!
These are fantastic. The fit is perfect, I wanted something a bit longer since most of my shorts are short shorts, and these are super cute and stylish but a bit more modest. I haven't wanted to take them off. The corduroy is super soft. I got the rust and I love it. The color is very true to the picture.

My new favorite shorts. Perfect boyfriend fit without being too baggy. Love these!

These are some of the most flattering and functional shorts a woman could buy herself. All shapes and sizes would fit into these. They have a great stretch with the cord material, but not so much so that I feel like they need a wash to shrink them after use. They are an excellent length in the crotch area so you can comfortably cross your legs, hike, sit, lounge around, etc. I have a very athletic lower half, and my bum usually has a difficult time finding fitting shorts, with a waist that is tapered in enough. They are a wider leg, which is what I like. I purchased a size 4, which is pretty true to size. The colors are also lovely. I purchased the dark blue, which looks like a cobalt blue. 10/10 would buy these again.

Great overall fit, and sweet color way! I wore these all summer and they held up to months of abuse. A definite favorite.

Comfortable and surfy cute.
I've tried a couple of different cord cutoff shorts and found them too stiff, or too short. These are neither! They are really comfortable and just the right length-- good coverage without feeling granny-ish. Love them!

CORD SHORTS are the best
I have the outfit Luisa posted below. I love it! The shorts are super cute, they have a little bit of stretch in them to make them easy to move in on a hot summer day. I love the frayed edges, they feel young and fresh. i highly recommend them to anyone looking for an updated short this year!

Comfy, stretchy and adorable
From the moment I put these on I knew they would be my go to short of the season. Denim styling but in a lightweight stretch organic cotton cord. Good coverage in the leg and rear, so they are fun but not at all too revealing. The spandex makes them comfy, flattering and keep their shape.
