Where are the sizes?

For your most flattering fit, we ditched standard sizes. We make your tailor-made short to your unique measurements, and ship it straight to your door. No hassle, no fittings, and no extra tailoring cost. Here's how it works:

  • Customize your style
  • Checkout and place order
  • After checkout, we'll text your secure link. Just wear tight fit clothing, click the link, and prop your phone to take 2 photos. The photos auto-generate your measurements and are then auto-deleted.
  • No into photos? No problem. You can email us your measurements, and we'll send you a measuring tape if you need one.
  • Our Lifetime Fit Guarantee + Returns

    We 100% guarantee every piece we make for life.

    • Don’t love your fit? We’ll alter it or remake it for free, and pay for shipping both ways. If you prefer to tailor it locally, we’ll give you a $30 refund on your order.
    • If your body changes over time, we’ll alter your piece or create a new one for free. You just cover the shipping.
    • Still not in love? You can send your piece back for a full refund within 30 days, less $8.99 return shipping. Then we’ll wash, alter, and donate it to a woman in need with the help of Dress for Success who just landed a job.

    Perfection!

    I don’t like wearing shorts, but the increasing hot summers in the Pacific NW convinced me to give in and start wearing shorts.
    Most shorts fit me funny, too short, baggy in the butt and legs, and just ugly.
    I decided to try RedThread shorts. I figured if I had to wear shorts at least I could wear ones that fit and are comfortable.
    These far surpassed my expectations! They fit perfectly, look great and are extremely comfortable.
    Thank you RedThread, you truly live up to your reputation.
