If you're a regular reader of my blog you know I'm not much of a shorts gal. It's not that I have a lot of hang ups about showing my "over-fifty scarred, bruised legs from years of gardening", I just have never felt shorts to be as comfortable to wear as a summer dress or skirt. But these shorts changed my mind; THEY ARE SO COMFORTABLE! They are made of a spandex material that stretches but doesn't cling. There are no buttons or zippers. I would say they have an elastic waist, but they don't, because the entire pair of shorts is elastic. They seem to have some type of elastic stomach panel. They fit like a glove, and I never felt the need that I had to tug them back up because all they had was elastic around the waist.
The main reason I never liked wearing shorts was because they tend to crawl up my butt making them so uncomfortable to wear. I rarely have that problem with pants, but for some reason I always have that problem with shorts. These do not do that. Again, I think it's the Spandex material which stretches where you need more stretch, but pulls in where you don't, allowing a perfect fit for your own unique body type.
The length of the shorts is also quite nice; not to short at all. The leg is on the wider side, but that's OK with me because I think it provides a dressier look. Some time's I think it looks like I'm wearing a skirt or skort and not shorts.
I styled my outfit with all white everything with a pop of red in the handbag.
Here is a close up of the shorts so you can see the print and the elastic waistline/tummy panel. I love how streamlined the waist line is. Most common elastic waist shorts/pants look like they have an elastic waist because the material gathers. You'd never know these shorts had an elastic waist had I not told you!
For those of you who'd like to request these shorts from your stylist or look for them on line, they are called "Lea Printed Short" by Margaret M. I am wearing a size Medium.
The shorts are considered a "slimming pant" so there are no pockets. I've read reviews of other women who received these shorts and everyone says they are amazing, so flattering, and comfortable.
I'll be back on Monday with a review of the entire box letting you know what I kept and what I sent back, as well as the results of my Instagram Poll.

I've been wearing more shorts lately and I like them when they are wider. To me they almost look like a skirt at times.ReplyDelete
Thanks, I so agree with the wider leg.Delete
I love those elastic waists that don't look like they are! So cute.ReplyDelete
I know, isn't it awesome? We get the comfort with the polished look.Delete
Really cute shorts, love the print! I only have solid colors but have been thinking about getting a pair of printed shorts. They look so pretty and dressy!ReplyDelete
Thanks Ellie, usually I only own solids too, but I've venturing into prints the last few years.Delete
Un post muy interesante! Gracias por la información! Feliz fin de semana! ♡♡♡ReplyDelete
Lovely outfit! I like this red purse, it looks very cool together :):**ReplyDelete
I don't wear shorts (other than Bermuda) for the same reason, Amy, but these are really cute and I love the way they look on you! Someday I'm going to try StitchFix because it looks like you always get pieces that are just perfect for you!ReplyDelete
Thanks Ruth, I hope you try it some time!Delete
Super cute and the perfect length. I received a pair of pull-on denim shorts with faux pockets in my Fashom box and have loved them. Would never have guessed how often I would wear them. Had almost given up shorts all together. Yours are dressier and look so cute with the white top and cardi.ReplyDelete
Thank you. Why is it so hard to find amazing shorts like these or yours in stores? Everything is always the traditional style, with the usual material, very uncomfortable and bad fits.Delete
You look so cool in these shorts and I love how you've styled it! Lovely earrings!ReplyDelete
I really like your shorts! The print is great and would work back to so many colors!ReplyDelete
Thank you! So far I've only tried white, red, or blue, but I want to try it with yellow. Any other suggestions?Delete
