These shorts worked out perfectly. I am short 5'1" and cannot ware shorts that come just above my knees or cover my knees because, they make me look shorter and boxy. The Aviva are the perfect length. The fit in the rear and waist is very comfortable and flattering.I tried NYDJ Teresa and had to send them back because they were just to long. I purchased a size 10 fits perfectly, I weigh 149.
The shorts are a perfect fit acknowledging "mom physique". However the brand name is a big middle age reminder. Alas, the fabric is nice quality and the cut of the shorts is perfect so I will get over the bad brand name....not let the tag show and be happy with my shorts!
