Oahu Short


  • Fun, easy-going shorts pair well with sunny summer days
  • Stretch cotton corduroy is oh-so soft and comfortable
  • Raw edge hem adds a unique homemade look

Okay shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 2

These are just okay. Four stars because they seem well-made, they're comfortable, and I like the fabric and color (thin-wale corduroy, dark coral), but they're not especially cute or particularly flattering to my athletic shape. I am 5'3" and 117 lbs, muscular legs, and I ordered a size 2. I don't like tight-fitting shorts/jeans, and these are not. When I first tried them on they gapped at the back of my waist, but after I washed and dried them that seemed to resolve. They hang a little low on my waist and I prefer that to more fitted.

I looked at them for a long time online, months, before I pulled the trigger and ordered a pair. For me they don't quite measure up to all the rave reviews, but you never know until you try, and every shape is different. Probably if I were 5'8" they would be more flattering. All in all, happy with the purchase since I waited until they were on sale.

Super comfortable shorts!

I love these shorts! They are mid-rise and do run big but in a way that just makes them more comfortable. I'm normally a 2 or a 4 in pants. I got these in a 2 and though the waist band is a a bit loose they don't look baggy or fall down, it just adds to the comfort!

Wanted to love these, but...

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 10

These are very cute and comfortable shorts. The fit was nearly perfect. My only gripe is the color. I ordered the Coral. The image showed a more muted/toned down coral but when I received them they were definitely flourescent coral! Not the look I want. For reference, I ordered size 10 which worked well for my larger waistline and narrow hips.

Really wanted to like these but.....

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 6

I read the other reviews and ordered up a size as many of them suggested since they runs small and they were too big. I normally wear a 4 (or small) in just about everything (prana, mountain hardware, athleta, gap, patagonia) so I ordered a 6 and now I am returning them. Too bad too, they are super cute shorts. They probably are true to size.

Updated style doesn’t work for me

I have several pairs of the Oahu short that are from 2 or 3 years ago. The new ones that arrived have a much shorter zipper and it looks awkward on me. I returned them.

not for curvy figures

  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 8

These are super cute and comfy, but I have a small waist and bigger hips and the waist on these was just too big. I'm usually size 8-10 and ordered 8 based on reviews that said they run large. The fit around my hips/thighs was perfect, but the waist gaped away from my body 1-2 inches. One size down would definitely have been too tight around my hips.

Love the shorts but they are see through!!!!

These shorts are great, big, but great!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 0 & 2

I was able to snag a size 2 in Cinnamon while traveling Colorado only to realize they are just too baggie for my liking. I was grateful Backcountry had 1 pair of size 0 left. I couldn't find another 0 on the net either!
These shorts are comfy, that beachy kind of comfy. They have a laid back feeling with perfect amount stretch.

Please size down if you can get your hands on a pair, you won't regret it.

Shorts for adults!

  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 4

Alright, I'm guilty. I already own two pairs of this short. They're soft, cute, and actually feature a nice inseam that doesn't make it look like I'm wearing booty shorts. The raw hem is stitched, so it won't come undone throughout the life of the short.

I bought the mojito and the opal. The mojito is less of a mint and more of a sherbert green, which is fine but not great. The opal is more of a light pink than the faded off-white I see on my screen. Bonus points for that! I usually wear a 4 in the average pant. I wear a 2 in Prana. I ordered the mojito in a 4 and it fits great, but a belt makes a huge difference. I ordered the opal in a 2, originally to test for size, and found it a better fit. I'm keeping both.

And as soon as pebble comes back in stock, I'm nabbing those as well.

Woohoo Oahu!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 4

These fit exactly as shown in the picture if you buy the correct size. They are meant to be loose fitting and comfy. They are a great length, in my opinion. Not too long, not too short!! The material is so comfortable that I can hike, climb, work, and lounge in them. Definitely gonna wear these all summer long, and might just buy another pair!

I will wear these all summer...

  • Size Bought: 2 & 4

20 years ago I found a pair of men's corduroy pants at the thrift store, cut them off, and wore them almost every day for at least two summers. I haven't loved a pair of shorts since then until now. The are soft, low-rise without being too low and comfortable.
Sizing is a little flexible... I ordered the cinnamon in my normal size (4) for my first pair. They fit similar to the model - a little baggy but super comfortable and perfect length. I decided to get the Azul and ordered in size 2 and 4 to see if the 2s fit better, and they are both good - just different. The size 2 are a little shorter on me because they aren't down on my hips, but have a more tailored look. Husband likes those better. I personally think the 4s are a little more comfortable, but not as flattering. I'm going to keep them both.

Comfortable but not perfect

  • Size Bought: 8

These shorts are comfortable and colors are pretty, however there is some weird bunching up of fabric in the crotch., almost like there is just too much material there. I bought 2 pair and I'm returning them both because of that issue.

Love Comfy shorts

  • Size Bought: 4

Bought three pair of shorts, one worked. Two the same in different sizes and colors. Aqua in sz 6 ran way smaller than the olive in sz 4. Keeping the olive. Enough stretch for comfort and not too much so that they feel like bike shorts.

Comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 8

I have them in both colors and have been wearing them all summer so far. The material is quite nice and comfortable however they are not the most flattering pair of shorts I own. They tend to bunch in the crotch some though a smaller size may not.

cute not flattering

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

These are super cute and comfortable however I am returning them. They do some weird puckering on the backside and I don't need anything to accentuate my rear in a bad way! I tried a pair on in the store and they did the same thing. I was hopeful that maybe it was just that pair hence, ordering a pair here. Bummer!

Very comfy but not cute

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

These shorts are very basic and great if you're looking for comfortable, but they aren't particularly cute or flattering. If you have an old pair of cords, you could just cut them and have the same thing.

Comfy and flattering

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 6

Really like these shorts - have them in both goldenrod and fig! They have a flattering fit, but still comfy with just the right amount of stretch for mobility. These will definitely be one of my go-to pairs this summer.

nice shorts

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 2

These are on the short side, but are a nice accessory to tanned toned legs. Gave these as a gift. Size 2 was perfect.

Love love love these!

  • Fit: True to size

These are fantastic. The fit is perfect, I wanted something a bit longer since most of my shorts are short shorts, and these are super cute and stylish but a bit more modest. I haven't wanted to take them off. The corduroy is super soft. I got the rust and I love it. The color is very true to the picture.

Favorite!

    My new favorite shorts. Perfect boyfriend fit without being too baggy. Love these!

    How to Measure:
    For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
    Chest:
    Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
    Natural Waist:
    Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
    Hip:
    Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.
    Cup Size:
    1. Around the chest, under the arms and above the bust. If the measurement is an odd number or a half size cup, round up. This is the band size.
    2. Around the fullest point of the bust. This is one of two measurements needed to determine cup size.
    3. Under the bust, around the ribcage. This is the second measurement needed to determine cup size. To determine cup size, subtract the measurement #3 from measurement #2.
