I bought these shorts and was surprised to find the zipper is literally in one of the hand pockets. They really are a VERY cute and stylin short, but will take some getting used to with the functional miss of the zipper in the pocket. Also, I did end up returning them, because within 5 minutes of putting on these shorts, the weird zipper in the pocket split (for no reason, nothing to do with squeezing in too much booty in a small size :) and was not fixable. Thank to this site for having a killer return program, because they took these back with no problem AT ALL! OVERALL THOUGH, very cute shorts!
