Vintage Light High Waisted Shorts
Vintage from the 1990s
Inseam: 3.5 in
Thank you for supporting our small business during COVID-19. You may notice that there are some sizes out of stock due to this as well. We will restock as soon as we can, and in the mean time be sure to "favorite" our shop for any sizing/listing updates.
These will not be Levi's brand specific, they come in various brands, but will be the same wash as the photos. If you have any requests, just simply add it to the comment on your order!
Vintage tag sizes are often inconsistent between styles, brands, and time periods, which is why it is better to go off of the exact measurements. It is also hard to assign waist measurements to modern sizes like "0, 1, 2, 3, 4" etc., because these may not be consistent between all brands, age groups (women's vs. juniors) and countries. However, if you are completely lost or have no way of measuring your waist, below are some measurement-size conversion charts you may want to consider.

Keep in mind, the vintage denim tends to run a bit smaller than today's sizing, and the material is a bit thick. Due to this, depending on how snug you want them to fit, most people move up one or two sizes from their regular fit.
I like to breathe a bit more in mine, and have thicker legs, so I move from a US size 6-8 to a size 10-12 when I where these.
SIZE NOT AVAILABLE?
I only list the sizes that I currently have available, to guarantee quick shipping to your doorstep. If you do not see your size in stock, keep in mind that I restock once or twice a week. If you "follow" my shop it will keep you updated on any additional listings.
These shorts are made to fully cover your bottom. However, If you want them longer or shorter, just add that to the comment of your order. I'd be happy to accommodate that.
Since these are not Levi specific brand, my shop has many high waisted shorts and vintage items.

I know it's difficult to order online, not knowing if they will fit or not. Please be mindful of my sizing suggestions listed above before ordering, as you're responsible to knowing your measurements and how snug you want the material. I will do my best to assist you with any questions before ordering!
- REFUND - I accept returns if they do not fit. You can get a Refund of the item (excluding shipping costs) if you mail it back.
- OR 50% DISCOUNT - If you prefer to not mail it back, I can give you a 50% Discount on a new order of the size that would better suit you.
These are high-waited vintage items, meaning they may have been previously worn in the 70s-90s, but they are hand selected for quality.
If you have any further questions, I am just one message away! I would love to help you in anyway possible.

Ok so I was nervous about these when I pulled them out of the package and saw how big they were. But when I tried them on, ugh, the vintage Gods were upon me. These are Eddie Bauer (a brand my mom and dad love) and they are so comfy, and super flattering! They made my booty look so nice! And the waist was juuuust high enough and fit perfectly. Not to mention, they came out of the package smelling like the love we all dream about. I’ll be back to this shop! Thank y’all so much!
I really loved how fast these shipped! They’re a little tighter than I hoped, but nothing I can’t work with. I normally wear a size 10/12 in pants and I ordered the 14. The shorts are shorter on one leg vs the other, one side doesn’t cuff completely like the other side if I decide to roll the bottom, but I still think they are very cute and I am happy with them! Plus the shop owner included a personalized note, which I think is awesome!
Pros: They fit perfectly! Sized up per previous reviews and ordered the vintage size 28W is about a 22 in today's sizin. They arrived super fast thanks to priority shipping *Upgraded by the seller* and smelled really good! Con: While I expected the vintage light pair to arrive, a more vintage darker medium rinse arrived. Totally OK with the medium rinse as I've been wanting this rinse anyway, but just something to keep in mind for next time. Hopefully can get my hands on a vintage lighter rinse soon though (if more 28W come through!).
I loved it! The item fit perfectly! I actually followed the size chart and took her Suggestion of going up a size ( I suggest others do the same). Reading and following directions will get you very far lol. I really appreciated the 2- day priority shipping. As an obsessive package tracker ...it really warmed my heart. Communication between the seller and I was great also. She quickly replied to any issue I had and was more than eager to help! Would definitely buy from her again!!!
