Fred Nietzsche used a balancing tightrope walker to symbolize the futility of trying to overcome humanity. That being said, the Volcom Women's Balancing Act Short is more worried about balancing its social life than listening to some crazy German's machinations. Slip into these lightweight summer shorts when evening falls and it's time to take the longboard out for a roll. The Balancing Act Short's hem hits right above the knee.

shorts run true to size, so I wear a 5 which is a womens 4. love the length, great for long-boarding in the summer. The only issue I have is the button on the pocket, it makes it flair and is a pain for when I want to slide my keys in. Otherwise very cute. (also the white/cream is not see through)
I want to place order for the Volcom...
I want to place order for the Volcom Balancing Act Short-women.
From slect options, only size 1,3,5 & 7 can be found but at your sizing chart is XS, S, M & L... Please advise me how to choose my right size. My low waist is 33 in & hip is 36-37 in.
I just returned these shorts. They are shorter than they look in the picture, they ended about 2 inches above the knee which I found to be an unflattering length. I ordered the black ones that look like a grey plaid on the site but when they came, they were very black and white, not plaid at all and were actually a strange print of crescent moons that made a sort of warped pattern. Hard to explain but I didn't dig it at all. The size was great, typical Volcom sizing. I always get Volcom in size 7, usually in womens sizing, I'm a 4 or 6 depending on the brand.
I got these in both brown and then the cream color. They are a nice thick fabric and a little closer cut to the thigh (not tight though) so they don't look like you're wearing your boyfriends shorts. I'm 5'5" 125 and a 4 fits well, I have to wear a belt to avoid plumbers crack. My only problem is matching shirts to the cream color, just need to shop more i guess!
these shorts are great for hangin out with friends or to wear to work. nice material too.
I got these shorts in brown and think they are the cutest shorts ever. I wasn't sure what size to get. I am usually a size 4 (26/27 waist). I went with the size 5, and they fit perfect! The material on these pants is also really nice. These are shorts you can wear casually or to work. They also are VERY slimming due to the pinstripes, so you win in every way when getting these shorts.
