Lee Jeans Shorts for Women

I don’t typically think of Lee Jeans when it comes to shorts or capri’s.  While I do own a pair of Lee Jeans (I received them for a review last fall) and they are comfortable and fit well I hadn’t considered them for warm weather wear.  Then the company sent me a pair of their Natural Fit Belted Dorsey Bermudas ($52, now $27.90) and I revised my thoughts about Lee Jeans once again.

The Natural Fit Belted Dorsey Bermudas are pretty stylish and very comfortable. I wore them to travel to the Mom 2.0 Summit in Miami earlier this month. I paired them with a white cotton tank that had an embellished neckline and it went perfectly with my silver sandals.  These shorts come with a silver belt that closes into a bow.  It’s quite cute!  The stretch sateen of these shorts is made up of 98% cotton and 2% spandex.  They have the same slims you technology as the jeans I own and they hit me at the knee.  These shorts come in four colors ballet pink (my color), black , indigo rinse and shark.  Sizes range from 4-16.  The shorts have a tummy panel that instantly slims you and can go from casual to a bit dressed up.  That’s how I worked them last time.  Like my other Lee Jeans I can see the benefit of the slims you technology. However, the slight bulkiness of the closing flap and belt that sit just below my waist makes me look a bit bigger the more baby weight I lose.  Right now I’m wearing an 8 and it fits perfectly with some room to wiggle, but I wonder what a size 6 would look like with this panel.  It does hold you in comfortably but the smaller sizes might have that front button bulk that makes the waistline less than smooth.  From a side view I feel that adds a bit of thickness to my waistline that I don’t adore.  Perhaps the Midrise Belted Tomgirl Bermuda would look slightly slimmer on me with it’s lower rise waist.  I am thinking of purchasing the Slender Secret Belted Grace Capris in Poolside today! Those things are darling!

Lee Jeans has many styles of shorts with varying waistlines and fun colors to choose.  Many of them are on sale right now too!  I think that the shorts are comfortable and wear well.  They slim my legs more than my waist and I love the ballet pink color.  They also wash and wear very well.  I will keep them in my summer rotation and try another size down in the future.  Next, I will try the capri’s and this winter look into another pair of jeans.  The ones from last fall still look new and have had no fading!  That’s another great reason to check out Lee Jeans.

You can purchase Lee Jeans shorts, capri’s, pants and jeans and other items online and at stores like Kohl’s, Peebles, JCPenney and more.
