These shorts are perfect. True to size and not crazy elastic like the basic black jeans skirt and the basic black jean shorts are. From what I have seen from my other items these shorts size smaller than the rest. the length is nice it's not too short compared to Primark H&M Zara and so on. The brodery is really nice quality (we'll see how it resists the wash tho). Pockets are real. High waisted up to belly button. Love it I would 100% recommend.
