Petite Turn Up Hem Denim Shorts
Nice fitting for me, but not as long as shown
I loved these, and bought in my usual M&S jeans size of 10. I had specifically wanted some slightly longer shorts, rather than shorter cuffed ones, as when I ride my bike, the nose of the saddle can rub on the upper inner thigh. The ones I have, from another brand, have stitched turn ups which I haven't attempted to take down and not a lot of fabric to play with anyway.
When I took these out of the packet, with the turn ups, they looked exactly as short as my previous ones. On the bike I have rolled the legs down, since they are not stitched, and they seem to be just long enough to prevent the saddle rub. They are slightly flared to the hem when unrolled.
Whilst a nice, comfy pair of shorts, they are definitely not as long as the picture.

I had high hopes but knew as soon as they came out of the packaging. Vast around the waist (or was it hips as the waist was lower than in the picture) - size 6 and measured 32inches! I took them off without undoing them. Also inside leg is only 3 inches so much shorter than the picture. Maybe I had a rogue pair?

I ordered these in both a size 10 and 12, the button on the waistband of size 12 was very stiff to undo, however, the button on the size 10 was impossible for me to open, my daughter broke her fingernail trying and my husband finally managed with a bit of brute force! Had I had a problem with one pair I would have thought it unlucky but as it was on both I feel that the buttonholes are too small. I have decided to keep the size 10 now my husband has worked the buttonhole to make it larger.My only comment fit wise is that the shorts sit more on the hip and both tended to be overly generous on the waistband which isn't particularly flattering.
