I have a hard time finding shorts/pants to fit me. Regular Lee shorts/jeans don't fit as well as the Riders. I was thrilled to find these shorts online. My store only carries a few styles of the Riders shorts. I bought one pair and they fit so well, i went back and bought 4 more! I am smaller through the waist, larger through the hips and thighs and the size 6 fits me perfectly. I think there is size inflation here, since I'm 5'8" and 145lbs and have never been a size 6 in my life, but that seems to be the trend and what I'm fitting in now in other brands as well. The quality is good. They are the same quality, fit, style as the Riders jeans. They have a higher rise, just below the navel, above the hipbones. I hadn't realized there was a belt. I won't be wearing that with the shorts. But the shorts are awesome!
About This Item
Country of Origin: Imported
Fabric Care Instructions: Machine wash cold inside out with like colors, Tumble dry low, medium iron.
The only reason I didn't give these a 5 is because the size labeling was messed up and I had to order them three times before I finally got the right size. I ordered a 16 and the first time, I received a pair that were size 16 according to the tags, but the inside label said 14 and they fit like a 14. On my next order, I got a pair that were labeled 16 inside and out but fit exactly like the 14. On my third try, I got an actual 16. They fit perfectly! I really like these shorts a lot and Riders fit my shape very well. The quality and style are excellent. The belt is ugly and useless, but I don't want a belt anyway. I like the length as well - a few inches above the knee. I like the color variety. It would be nice if they sold them in black.
Material not as advertised......
I purchased this item after reading it contained 98%coton and 2% spandex. Upon receiving it I realized it is 100% cotton. I like my shorts and capri pants to contain some spandex for comfort and ease of movement since I am wide in the seat and hip area. To my surprise, the shorts were not as advertised. And I ordered two of them!
Why is it made in Meduim?
Don't waste your money on it, it is only made for ppl that can fit petite clothes or is skinny. I am not big, but if you feel bloated that day then it WILL NOT fit you unless you let go of button and wear big /tall shirt pretending it is buttoned.It is okay but I doubted it gotta be with me all years because it might shrink in wash-machine. It should be Regular size instead of Meduim, that is why I give one rate. It has poor quality. I would not reccomde to anyone. I am surprised it can fit me. I bet if I lose more pounds I probably can fit them much better. Of course you have to go up to one or 2 size. BECAUSE it is not true to size. I am 16 size in petite, but I go up to 18. It fit me okay (not perfectly) it makes me feel fat when I feel like I need lose 10 pounds to fit better . Somebody told me it aint true, it is just a quality they used sometimes the poor quality runs bigger or smaller.
