Fits good, I used them for a Cheryl Blossom & they were perfect, however if you don’t like to be ‘cheeky’ I would recommend going up once size. Their not super short, just a tiny bit cheeky. (Instagram: Queenofarkhamcity)
Luckily I planned on being hoochie with these shorts anyways. So no complaints.
These are cute and do not shrink. The three stars is because after wearing them they stretch out a lot and the legs are higher on the sides than I like, The seams are not straight cut as the side rise up higher than pictured, not to mention they crawl up and with almost every moment and I am having to pull them down and out as they do not stay in place very well. So they have been designated sleep shorts and sleeping I do not notice them in my crack. Maybe I should have gotten a smaller size but going from the size chart I went with the XL. I am 5'6 and weigh in about 150, give or take either way and have almost no waist line so to speak as my hips and waist are pretty much perpendicular, like a boy my mom always told me as I was growing up. Maybe I am not built right for these shorts in particular. If they bug me too much I am sure one of my peeps will take them off my hands,
The pros: super cute retro design, high quality fabric that was much thicker than I expected, comfy, and a slightly longer inseam than the fit in the picture- I’m in favor of this because I like my sweat shorts to cover my booty and not get bunched up when moving around. Really, the only con is that they gave me the dreaded “V” which I refuse to subject upon my friends and neighbors. I ended up returning these shorts because they weren’t flattering on my body, but they may look great on someone else. I’m 5’4” and 110 lbs and got the small if that helps anyone. I think they’re quite affordable for the quality and are worth trying.
These fit strangely. I have a 24" waist, 36" low hip, and muscular runner's legs. I bought a size small. The waist was too big and the front hip/pelvic area formed an odd loose bunchy pouch, yet the butt and legs were quite fitted. At first I thought I had them on backwards, but nope. Definitely the kind of fit that would've worked its way into a camel toe once I started walking around. Maybe I'm the one who's shaped strangely and not the shorts, but either way these didn't work for me. They are cute though, and not as scandalously short as I was worried they might be. The leg opening is narrow enough that it keeps them from being too cheeky.
I forgot AA was bought by Gildan. They aren't made like they used to be. The tags are slightly different than my other size m AA shorts I bought from the official website a long while ago, one leg is about 1 cm shorter than the other, and the waist band is much smaller than I expected it to be. Also they are made in China. Dissapointed they couldn't keep their sizing and quality control the same, but I guess if I wanted to try again I'd just need to size up.
It may be partially my fault for forgetting that American apparel has always run small but these are way too small and tight. They’re basically like underwear rather than shorts but I find them uncomfortable so I’m not going to be sleeping in them. The elastic band at waist really digs in. Overall I don’t think the quality is bad but they’re not really good for working out in unless you have really narrow hips and a small butt because it rides up a lot.. I would never wear these outdoors. For reference I bought a size small and I had 36 inch hips and a 25 inch waist when I tried these on and I think the size small would probably work better for someone with 33-34 inch hips
I love these shorts because they fit so well. They're very short but the fabric curves nicely over the buttocks so there is complete coverage and the total result is a very attractive short short ! I bought the solid black and then liked them so much that I bought four more of the same. I machine wash them and line dry to maintain their perfect shape and fit.
Love these, highly recommend. Perfect for summer, running or just lounging about.
Nice and snug
Just the tiniest bit big, they're probably the equivalent to a size 6
Very stylish and comfortable, will definitely be buying more
If ever you wore American Apparel shorts in the past you would know they are pretty much "booty-shorts". Expect them to fit very snug and basically be right under your bum cheeks. They are great for working out and doing things around the house especially if you're more conservative. Good cotton quality. The end!
Bellissimi! Morbidi e comodi! Come non indossare niente!! Ottimo per stare a casa o fare qualsiasi altra attività sportiva!
Habe diese Short im Angebot erworben und bin voll zufrieden.
item received looked nothing like the photo or fit the description of what was sent. The bottom edges aren't even finished, the jersey knit material was just cut so it rolls up and there sides do not look the same
