My modest 9 year old LOVES these! She has always been uncomfortable showing her tummy, but loves crop/bra top looks...these allow her to wear the cute tops without feeling over-exposed....Read complete review

I like these but be careful! They have a bad fit. They don't ride up, but the waist band is to big. it goes up like my entire torso onto my bust....Read complete review
I like these but be careful! They have a bad fit. They don't ride up, but the waist band is to big. it goes up like my entire torso onto my bust. But I fold them over slightly and then im good to go. I ordered them in black and a size medium. I am 5'0" and 110 lbs. I dont really have a butt though. They are just a little tight, so definitely order the bigger size if your debating between two sizes. They're tight but loose at the same time. anyways, I wear them for dance class and am wearing them with the fringe crop top for competitions for my solo and I can't wait! ...Happy shopping! (:

Comments about Balera High-Waisted Dance Shorts:
My daughter wore this shorts to practice for a contemporary dance that lasts 3 min and afterwards noticed a whole on the back seam of the shorts. The bad quality is very disappointing. I'm glad she only wore it to a practice how horrible would it be to have it happened on stage!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought these shorts for my Dance Team and they fit really well. Because of the high waist, they are super flattering on the stomach. While they do cut in a little on the thigh, it's worth it because they do not ride up at all. Love them!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
These shorts are great, fit true to size and can be used in class or on stage great quality I bought them in black.
Great shorts -- Short but not revealing

See all my reviews
These shorts are a trendy cut of the classic dance short. The photo is hard to see, but there is a seam cutting low around the hips (so you can fold the top over if you want) and fairly tight bands around the legs. At first I didn't like the styling, but once my daughter tried them, we realized that it's actually really flattering. The band helps the shorts avoid riding up and showing fanny cheek. That's always been a problem before with such short shorts. These are great.

So upset they ripped first time I tried on, would return but they aren't big holes and did not want to go through shipping and waiting weeks to get them back, be extra careful with the fabric.

Best high waist shorts EVER! Stay in place. Tried others but they would ride up or down. NOT these- they are as perfect as you could get!
To measure girth, place tape measure on center of right shoulder, run through crotch and back to right shoulder loosely (as shown in diagram).
Remember, the girth is the most important measurement.
When in doubt, let the girth measurement determine size.
