I love my Bengajean shorts. I just live in the white so much that I have also ordered in black. The fit is perfect for me and is the only short I have worn now for a few years. Thanks Blue Illusion!

Love this style of short. Suits my body really well. Very flattering to wear with a longer top or shorter top. Very versatile. Hope this style never disappears. I bought the black and white ones and would love to see the denim ones come back into stock.

I love these shorts and have 4 pairs now. They are so comfortable especially for a more mature figure e.g. a little bit more padding around the middle!!! They wash and iron so easily. Please keep this style.

Cannot live without! I have been buying these for the last couple of years and have a pair in every colour! They are always an amazing fit, can be dressed up and down, look slimming and match most of my wardrobe. They also wash well. As they wear out I just replace with more. Hopefully these will always be in the Blue Illusion collection as I would be lost without them. Would love if Blue Illusion made a pair of beach shorts in this design as well! The icing on the cake!!

(Posted on 10 Dec 2016)

Love theses shorts, great fit and lovely colours; got excellent sale price and will be ordering white pair.

I purchased a black and a white pair for travelling overseas. They are very comfortable to wear, however, the black pair have faded along the edges and look quite well worn after only a couple of washes which is disappointing for the price.

(Posted on 1 Apr 2016)

Reply: Bonjour Barbara, Thank you for your review. The dyes used in the benga fabric are natural and come from the Indigo plant and do not contain preservatives like other dyes do to help it stick to the fabric. This is why you will notice fading more quickly. The transfer of colour will eventually subside however our Production team recommends half a cup of salt or vinegar in the final rinse which will help set the dye. Should you feel that your pair has faded too much, please feel free return them to any Blue Illusion store, excluding Myer concessions, to swap them for another pair or a refund. If you are in our Lifestyle Club we will have your transaction on record and you will not need your receipt. For any further information, please contact Customer Service on 1800 208 205 or Merci!

Love the ease of wearing these shorts and only gave it a 4 because I am not a fan of cotton/elastane. It's okay but I don't like to buy too much of it.

Fabulous shorts - I bought three pair!

(Posted on 7 Feb 2016)

Bought a white pair of these yesterday. Going straight back to the shop this morning to get a denim pair. Love them.

(Posted on 13 Nov 2015)

Great comfortable shorts. Perfect length and slim cut. Took these away to tropical holiday they were cool and stylish in evening with sandals and dressy top!

- Townsville

The most comfortable and versatile pair of shorts I've ever had. They've solved all the fitting problems I've had with other brands. No gaping, no muffin top, no baggy backside. I'll be back to buy the denim colour. If you put them out in other colours, I'll happily buy a pair of each.

Please bring back the dark denim shorts in this style, White is good, but not slimming for bigger people.
