Rated 5 out of 5 by CRTGrammie Very versatile!
Love these shorts. I use them as a bathing suit, paddling shorts and working around the house. They fit well & I love the pockets as well as their easy care. I wish they came in other colors.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lindstromlassie Well made but not flattering on me.
I was looking for a swim suit bottom that would give me a little more coverage, yet still be attractive. These shorts are well made but pretty boxy looking - when paired with the tankini top it was ok but not great. I'd like them to be a little more form fitting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by frostygoth Very comfortable
I decided to try these shorts as the bottom for a swimsuit instead of a skirt because I didn't like how skirts flew up while doing water aerobics, in the hot tub, etc. These shorts are extremely comfortable to wear, they are not heavy when wet, and they're just the right length. The panty lining, though, is mesh, not swimsuit material, so I wish it was a thicker material, but because the shorts fit well, I'm not concerned about anyone seeing anything, unlike the skirts that always fly up (note I have not tried an LLBean skirt).

Rated 5 out of 5 by 4pen7 Just the right length and fit for comfort
Oh my, finally a pair of swim shorts that are a great length, dry quickly, and fit comfortably. I have wished for this style for many years. Have owned a pair and used them for three years. Just bought a second. Looking forward to using them for many years. I have both blue colors. Love!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lucerne12345 Nice, but not for my body type
The fabric is nice and smooth. The shorts are lightweight and comfortable...IF they fit properly. For a narrow-hipped figure, they would work best. The rise is higher on the waist and I normally wear low rise, so the pockets pulled open and they didn't work for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MmeDesLapins Sport Shorts are Spontaneous Swimwear
I rarely have time for the beach (or pool), but I do walk regularly. These shorts are great for walks around the pond or neighborhood, and they can take the water, too! (I used them on vacation instead of a bathing suit bottom and they worked out just fine.)
They're comfortable, secure, lightweight, quick-drying, street-appropriate, and they have POCKETS! The pockets are not recommended for swimming, of course, but for everyday or even fitness walking, they're extremely handy and hard to find!

Rated 5 out of 5 by time2swim Perfect Length
these are the perfect length for the person who is wanting to be more conservative and not show the world off :)
Can be worn for any casual outing!

Rated 2 out of 5 by nancy4g bloomers
The fabric, construction, and length are great (though some elastic in the front waistband would make them more comfortable). However, the legs are cut so wide that they looked like bloomers on me, and I do not have slim legs. I am not as vain as when I was younger, but I just couldn't bring myself to wear these, so I returned them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by coolbean not my style
I wanted these shorts to wear on the boat and at the beach - something I could wear in the water but also feel comfortable walking about. I have bought short-type bathing suit bottoms in the past and have been pleased with the look. These just didn't have the same appeal. The inside lining fit snug and I liked that, but the outer short was baggy all over and was too short. They will go back and I will look for something else.
