First of all, I love these shorts. They're really versatile and comfortable. The photos on here make it seem like they're a more thick fabric, but really the linen is lightweight. I tried them on in the store and decided to get a medium. The small did actually fit around my waist and even over my huge hips, but I liked how the medium hung instead of clung, you know. Also note that the label requires you to dry clean them! I purchased the "pewter" color and will probably get the darker gray also. Definitely recommend.

classy and lightweight shorts
June 1, 2014
i love these shorts! I got the banana cream, and they are very lightweight and perfect for summer. Since they are linen, they are not the thickest material. With that said, for the banana cream at least, I need to wear light colored/nude underwear because the linen cloth is kinda see through. If i tuck in a longer-ish shirt though, the underwear doesn't end up being a problem. I'm a 26 inch waist, and the small fits perfectly on my waist. the length is also ideal, not too long and not too short. One more thing-- for pleated shorts, you HAVE to wear a belt. if you don't, it doesn't look classy. It just looks kinda awkward.

Too Long
April 17, 2014
Looking at these shorts online, I imagined the material being thicker and sturdier but its actually pretty flimsy material. Also they were incredibly long compared to the ones shown in the picture. The shorts came close to my knee and it was pretty baggy even though I tried an xs - not very flattering.

Seriously Worth the Cost
April 17, 2014
So, I've always encountered a problem with shorts because they somehow always come out loose at the waist but tight at the thighs. This, however, was not a problem with these shorts. I got a small and it was perfectly loose at the thighs and I could ADJUST where I wanted the shorts to be, because I could make it seem as if it were high waisted (personal preference/choice). If you want it to be tight fitting, then of course you can get a smaller size like the girl in the picture. I absolutely love how it looks and feels (soft). I am not affiliated with American Apparel in any way, I just wanted to give an honest review. I got the light yellow shorts, size S, and my figure is pear shaped. For all you pear-shaped girls, THESE are the shorts to buy! A loose fit at the thighs creates an allusion that you have skinnier legs. I'll stop ranting now :)
