Boys' Pure Cotton Skin Kind™ Shorts is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cotton Shorts Much better than last years. The colour is better and they seem to hold their shape better (no idea if anything is different about the material). Still the only affordable allergy friendly school shorts on the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy shorts Slightly different type of fabric from traditional school shorts so be prepared for an uncertain response from your child, however, my son loved the material when he tried the shorts on. The material is so smooth and comfortable. A lovely solid grey material, not unlike Summer chino type trousers. I’d size up as the 11-12 fitted my 9 year old.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shorts I bought these shorts for my son who has eczyme. Been looking for pure cotton shorts for a while and these are great at a great price. Haven't washed them yet so don't know what they are like after a wash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts Love these pull on shorts and the fact they are pure cotton. Would definitely recommend and am ordering more in bigger size now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Soft but don’t look like school shorts These are very soft and good for sensitive skin but they are the wrong colour (too light) so I will return.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great cotton shorts - however.... It is so difficult to find cotton school shorts - so when these do finally come back in to stock, I bulk buy! However, as I have bought larger sizes over the years, I’ve found the waist size keeps getting bigger but not really the length. My son is very slim, and if it wasn’t for the adjustable waist, you could easily fit two of him in them! Would love them to be just a bit longer - and in stock more frequently.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good cotton shorts for boy with eczema My little boy had a major eczema flare up when he started school wearing the standard non-cotton school shorts I had bought for him. I ordered these cotton shorts online for him and they have helped his skin. I have bought a couple more pairs. They do fit big though - he's 4 and the age 2-3 is big on him, and I've pulled in the waist band as far as it will go! Recommend for children with sensitive skin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from School shorts My son likes these as he says they’re comfortable without the labels. My only issue with them is they seem to be more like a chino material and not the normal school shorts/ trouser material. So to me they don’t look as smart and they haven’t washed as well as the others that we’ve had. They’ve lost some of the colour & more difficult to iron. But the most important thing is my son is happy!
