I absolutely adore these shorts. I’ve wore them at least twice a week for the last 5-6 weeks even though they’ve been sitting in my closet since mid July 2021. Boy do I regret not wearing them sooner.
I bought a few ByEgreis denim shorts back in late 2019 all in size Large and they did not look nearly as good on me as these do; they gaped a whole lot more at the waist. I have a couple pairs of medium denim shorts as well and although they’re wearable and make my butt look fantastic, I find the waist uncomfortably snug (even though it’s stretchy) for my liking. Recently purchased the medium Vilma in hopes that perhaps it will feel more comfortable than the other medium ByEgreis shorts I have and not have that little gape at the waist. Otherwise I will sadly continue living in no woman’s land between medium and large.
I do believe Egi sold her soul for the denim fabrication “recipe” because it doesn’t even feel like I’m wearing denim. I go for a lot of walks around Sydney and there are times I completely forget I’m wearing denim shorts even though it’s sickly humid and the rest of me has sweat rolling down.
Now, I’m not normally a shorts type of woman and tend to stick primarily to Zimmermann dresses as my day to day go to; but dear sweet baby cheeses, these shorts are phenomenal. I think I may soon be converted from soft and feminine dresses to denim shorts and tshirts. I love styling my Vilma shorts with a crop top and my pearl Gucci sneakers; casually chic.
My measurements, (I’ve retaken them just now just to be sure) according to the size chart throw me into the large category which is why I purchased a large. As you can see in the picture the waist gapes slightly but because of the relaxed fit and distressed look, I feel that it works. I love them regardless.
For the record, I’m 5’11 and my measurements are bust of 95cm, waist of 76cm and hips of 109cm. I weigh 76kg
