    Catalina Short

    Cute At First...

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    These shorts are suuuuuuper cute when you first put them on, but as the day goes, and your body temp heats the material, they stretch out bad. So, I would say they do not hold their same shape and become baggy after wearing them for a bit. Wish that wasn't the case, because they nailed the cut so it's flattering on every part of the short.

    Love them

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 2
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 117lbs

    I've been looking for shorts that fit my body shape. I'm 5'5, 117lbs, short waisted, long legs, no butt/hips. These are a perfect shorts. They do give a bit so, if you're in between sized go down.

    Color fades in the wash :-(

    I got the paprika in a size 2, I have a 25-26 inch waist, and they fit perfectly! The color is beautiful... until the first wash. Now they look like old shorts. I still love them and will be wearing them all summer. I'm just bummed that they can't dress up like they would have if the color held.

    Lifes too SHORT..

    to live without these shorts.
    Honestly, I don't know how I navigated hot weather and cute outfits prior to this pair of shorts. My summer wardrobe revolves around the khaki short and summery tanks and blouses. Afternoon bike rides? These shorts are versatile enough to sweat in too. I no-longer have the consistent need to pull these shorts down, they are loose enough around my thighs that I'm able to move comfortably and avoid "sticky" situations. Plus, Kavu has gotten the "waist to rear" ratio down. The shorts are fitted, but not tight in the rear without the waist appearing too large or too tight. (They may have been created for Goldielocks because they fit juuuussstttt right)


      Love these shorts! The size was right on and the shorts are long enough that my butt doesn't hang out! Which is always a plus! I've worn them hiking, biking and for every day use! Shorts good in any condition! My kind of shorts!

      My wife loves these shorts and wears them nearly everyday. They are soft, stretchy and comfortable. They transition from trail to bar, and are comfortable all day. Some reviews said that the shorts ran small, but she found them to run true to size.

      I love these shorts! The material is great. I like that they are super comfortable and I can imagine hiking in them as well as wearing them in town. I will say that because the material is somewhat stretchy they do feel a little bit baggy after a couple of hours. I'm between a 4 and a 6. I went with a 6 and I wish I had gotten a 4 because they do stretch out. I will be ordering another pair in a size 4 because I do love them other than that.

      I want these in a size 2 in yellow! Are...

      I want these in a size 2 in yellow! Are you guys going to be getting more in that size/color? Or should I stop waiting?
