Super comfy but stitching and proportions slightly off

I went a little overboard and bought all 4 (tank, pants, long sleeve, shorts) in order to upgrade my pajama game. I love the others but like the shorts much less. The stitching in the inseam is already being pulled apart and wearing out with only 1 month of use. And though the M are a very baggy fit on me, they seem tighter in some areas making the proportions feel off. Wouldn't purchase again for the price but the others I have fully enjoyed.

Comfy but short

I have searched high and low for shorts that aren't just underwear. 4" inseam so I decided to try these. It's closer to 4" than anything else I've found but it would be nice if they were a little longer.

No my fav

Very odd shaped sleep shorts. Tight through hips and bunches up below elastic waist band.

Not the best

These shorts don't quite work for me and unfortunately the seams are already coming apart after less than a month of wear. They're a little too tight and the inseam isn't quite long enough. I got a Large, which is a pretty standard fit for me. I got the tank and pants (size Large, and the pants are almost too big) as well and quite like them! It's just the shorts that don't work for me. I have contacted customer service about the seams so we'll see how that goes. The are relatively comfortable and I love the fabric, the fit is just a little off.

Nice, but shrinks a ton

We really liked the appearance and feel of these shorts, but despite carefully following the care instructions they shrunk a full size in the first wash. Customer service has been completely non-responsive. Best to order a size larger.

Seams Coming Apart

I’m conflicted on this review because I loved these shorts at first, however after wearing them on and off over the last month (washing/line drying twice) they are coming apart at the seams. I didn’t think they were too small but began to question my judgement; to be honest I’m somewhat relieved to read others are having the same issues. Wishing I’d read those reviews before purchasing. I love Parachute’s bedding, but perhaps the linen material does not translate well into clothing? Hopefully it’s a design issue that can be fixed…

Wanted to love these! Poor quality

These shorts were so cute on and I loved the color and length. To me, Parachute is the type of brand where you invest in these pieces and expect them to hold up over time. Unfortunately, that was not the case with these shorts. The seam running down the butt was poorly done and started gaping on my second wear. By my 5th wear, they were ripped completely. I am hoping this is just a fluke and I received a poorly made item of the bunch? I have a ton of other stuff from Parachute (robe, sheets, quilts) and they are all well made. I would love for the customer service team to reach out to me if possible.

Love them but don’t hold up

I got about 1-2 great wears out of these but after that and 1 wash (I let mine air dry not machine dry) the seems are coming apart and fraying. I feel like I can wear them once more before the whole crotch and thigh seems are completely apart. It’s very disappointing because they fit so well and are light and airy and super cute! The quality just didn’t hold up for me.

Was excited to try, but …

These shorts may be the least flattering article of clothing I have ever seen. A canvas bag with a draw string would have more shape.

I loved these, and then the seam frayed

I loved these shorts, and was thinking of buying a second pair until the 6th or 7th time I wore them (maybe 2 washes total) the crotch seam started to fray and now has a quickly growing hole. I bought a fairly loose pair too, so it must be a construction issue (ie the material is not getting stretched or heavy use). It’s sad because they were the perfect summer short.
