Love these shorts. The detailing along the pockets is so cute in person. They are short with out being "too short" and they run true to size. No complaints here. They aren't stiff like some denim shorts are, they are a very stretchy denim- so they don't wrinkle every time you sit down. (a problem I've had with a lot of shorts)
I am 5'8 and athletic- the 7 fits me perfect.
