Easy, lounge-y, comfy shorts. Shorts that are spring- and summer-ready. That bring together Classic Lux with sharp piping, and two big pockets (of course). Relaxed fit meets all the rest day needs.
- classic lux (polyester / spandex)
- two large hand pockets
- interior drawcord
- 3" inseam (all sizes)
I gotta admit: I am quite perplexed by the number of reviewers who commented on these shorts having a tight waistband. I ordered my normal size and noticed there was a slight pinch but then removed the drawstring and voila! Instant give! I would go so far to say that the waistband relaxed up to 1.5" after removing the drawstring. Regarding everything else about the shorts: it's Lux. What more is there to say? This fabric will always feel so soft and luxurious against the skin and still remains my rest day outfit of choice.
I wanted lounge-y but still cute shorts with pockets for all the staying at home we do now. The rogas are my favorite, and the flat waistband in the pic seemed similar. Sadly, the fit and function fall far short of the rogas. The elastic in the band is about 1/3 of the waistband, and it pinches. This waistband does not lay flat at all, unless, I suppose, one actually has a flat belly. For me, it squeezed and emphasized the fact that I do not.
LOVE these shorts. Have them in red and black and hoping the blue is restocked in my size. I have lived in these all summer. Very soft and wash great. I have not had issues with the waistband but do get the occasional wedgie. I’m 5’9” 130lbs and the S fits great.
These shorts are soft and comfy. I have a smaller waist, but I agree with the other reviewers who note that the waistband is on the tight side.
I wear a 6 in Rogas and have to tighten the drawstring a little bit to keep them up. I originally ordered these in a Small and they fit ok in the butt/thighs but as everyone else has mentioned, the top of the waistband is really weirdly tight. I love how soft the fabric is, and the inseam is just right. I returned them and was able to snag a pair in Medium and they fit better, but even then I can tell there is this strangely inelastic band inside the waistband.
Was so excited for these. I live in lux pants all winter and was really looking forward to some lux to enjoy in the summer. I wear a 10 in O bottoms and ordered an XL to have some extra room. Unfortunately the top of the waistband was way too tight for relaxing in and I returned them.
I also expected them to be the lighter weight lux and they're definitely more heavy weight. They may have been too hot for warm days and for sleeping in.
I love these shorts - lux fabric is always awesome, and they are perfect for wearing this summer. One unexpected thing is that I needed to size up a whole size because my normal size was much too snug, especially in the waist. They have become my go to work from home shorts!
Love these shorts! Alright, they just arrived but I fell in love as soon as I put them on. The first thing I did was to check to see what other colors it came in and I will be purchasing at least one more pair. In terms of fit, I wear a 4 in Oiselle bottoms. The 4 in Rogas are a bit loose on me. I got the S in these and the waist is definitely tighter. It's also generally more fitted than the Rogas, but not uncomfortably so. I will be rocking these quite often I think (like all of my Lux gear)! Perfect for a casual weekend or lounging around. Fun retro style.
