Despite the ubiquity of jean shorts, finding the perfect pair can take a Herculean effort. With so many variables to consider – texture, fit, comfort, length, color, price, potential camel toe – it seems borderline impossible to find a style that checks all the boxes. And when you factor in a sizable butt and small waist (the two-ingredient recipe for the dreaded gape), it veers into hopeless territory. As someone who’s endeavored to go on this uber-specific jorts treasure hunt for years, I’m thrilled beyond belief to report that my search is finally over. Behold: Madewell’s
A riff on the brand’s vintage-inspired
Just like the name implies, The Curvy Perfect Jean Short is truly perfect. And a number of customers seem to agree with me. Some review highlights include: “Fits like a dream,” “Obsessed,” and “YOU NEED THESE.” I’d like to add that the high-waist cut is super flattering as it makes your legs look really long, and they’re comfy enough that you can wear them while working from home – a blessing now that sweatpants season is ending. Keep scrolling to see how I styled them (with a T-shirt, natch) and shop them for yourself.
