Rated 4 out of 5 by SKGD Sized just fine
Argh! I shouldn't have paid attention to the reviews that mentioned how large these shorts are. I ordered a size down and that was a mistake, I should have ordered my usual size. I like the fabric and the style, now just need to wait for the correct size to show up. LL Bean is really speedy with shipping though so I know I won't have long to wait.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BusyBeanShopper1849 Comfortable and practical
Typically a size 8, I ordered the small and medium to compare since I have a narrow waste and larger hips (which can make it hard to find a good fit). The medium was very comfortable and roomy however once they were wet, they grew so big they were falling off. The small, while a tiny bit snug on my hips when dry, was a much better fit when wet. Otherwise very comfortable, dry super-fast, and look nice enough that you could get away with running errands in them. Good bang for the buck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by elicooper great suit
I bought the tankini and the shorts. I am very pleased. The suit (12) and the shorts (m) fit great. I am a 5'6" woman that weighs 150# and have a middle age belly. The top covers nicely and doesn't fit to tight. I actually re ordered in another color.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Feijao A Lot of Exposure
My problem with these swimming tanks is that the neck is low and the straps are wide on the shoulders. I ended up with straps trying to fall off my shoulders and a lot of exposure when I bent down. I could only imagine water weight pulling the neck line down further. I need a little more coverage from a swim tank.
I also wanted the tank to be lower on the waist. The purpose of wearing the tank is to cover the belly, otherwise I would wear a bikini top! I'm not ashamed of my rib cage, it's the belly that needs coverage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nancymac16 BeanSport Lined Shorts
I didn't know what size to get so I ordered a small and a medium. There was no difference. They were exactly the same size. They were too big, too baggy and extremely unflattering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lbutter Not swim shorts??
I need to read the descriptions more closely next time. I thougth these were swim shorts. I tried them on and love them. I like the cut and the length of the shorts. I realized that they are sport shorts after reading the tag. Oh well. No matter what, I am keeping these shorts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MartiniQueen Ginormous!
I should have believed the other reviewers. They are very big and a weird cut/fit. Gave 2 stars because the idea and the fabric was good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sometimeshopper1 swim shorts
I purchased swim shorts that I feel will be comfortable to swim in and will be able to get out of the water without the shorts being drawn down by the water.

I don't know if you're supposed to go swimming in these, but I do and they're great. I wear the lined shorts by themselves with a tankini top and it's a dream come true. Swim wear on my large self that is not spandex/tight/showing everything.
