The Peony Shorts are a boxy, lounge style short, made out of a crisp Cotton Poplin.

It features cherry red coloured embroidery of our 'Bows' print on a butter base cloth. These shorts are half lined for extra coverage.

The Peony shorts have a 5cm, fully elasticated waist and are designed to be worn high waisted. The length of these shorts finish mid-thigh.

Most importantly, they have pockets!

Designed in Melbourne and made ethically in China.


Fit Notes

Fit is the same as our Lounge or Patchwork Shorts, so you can take the same size.

Designed to be a relaxed fit, take your regular VH pant size. You can go up a size if you want a super loose 'PJ' look.

Gemma wears a S. She is 179cm tall with a waist of 62cm and hip of 89cm. She wears an AU 8 in most brands.

The S was the sample on the day, we would recommend she wears an XS.
