Rated 5 out of 5 by rudac Nice Fit
The swim pants fit nicely. The first pair sent was defective and LLBean sent a replacement within 2 days in time for my trip. Appreciated the customer service and the overall quality of the shorts. Looks like LLBean is paying more attention to quality again. I would rather pay more and get quality!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ann5000 Good fit
The fit was good but the horizontal stripes are so far apart from front to back it looked strange. I expected for this price that some effort would have been made to at least get them close. The solid color might be okay.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mbh1 Cobalt blue swim trucks
The cobalt blue swim trucks I bought from LL Bean were of good quality and fit perfectly. My only complaint is that I swim at least once a week at the local gym pool which has a high content of chlorine. The trucks have faded horribly. I am on my second pair and have decided I will not wear this pair in anything but ocean water and hope they hold up better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by edumom12 Practical but not beautiful
I'll keep these water shorts for covering up and water fit just because I don't want to pay for a return and because this is a hard to find item in the Canadian winter. However, they do not fit as shown. It looks like the shorts in the photo have 6" inseams.The inseams are 3 and a half inches on the size large, not 4 inches as stated. Other reviewers noted this but I thought if I ordered the large they would be OK and they are, just. Good fabric, appreciate the pockets, long enough in the rise, but this is the closest fit I can get and these shorts are short and wide. Not pretty! I'm 5'9" and 160 lbs, so I am hard to fit. Would love it if LL Beam offered water shorts with a 6" inseam. Better still would be a medium tall option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SportyWoman Exactly what I was looking for!
This product delivered a pair of lined swim shorts which were not too short and not too long (dare I say they made my clunky aged legs reasonably graceful looking, or does the mirror in the locker room lie?). The shorts fit my torso well, are a happy aqua color and have two deep pockets, no less, a near miracle in a woman's product! I have teamed these shorts up with a black rash guard. I am so pleased with this outfit, I intend to order another pair of these shorts in a different color. Thank you, LLBean, for getting it right.

I bought a large of these in the unlined version of early in the summer. I liked them but they got baggy when I wore them swimming in the lake. This time I ordered the medium (fits fine dry) and we'll see if they stretch when wet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WestofDownEast Perfect Short After Sizing
Before I'd ordered the lined sport short, I had ordered the unlined version in a size small which fit perfectly and served all those near the water activities quite well. When I realized that I wanted to also use the short for swimming, I ordered a size small in the lined short which felt a little large, but I thought it would be okay. However as soon as I got in the water and needed to swim one-handed while the other hand held the short on, I realized that I needed a smaller size. The extra small arrived and it's great. I'm not sure why the sizing for the lined short is so different than for the unlined, but if you're purchasing the lined short, go smaller if you like to keep your shorts on when you swim.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CanuckGal Faded In Record Time!
I purchased these swim shorts, along with a matching tankini, specifically for a family vacation. It is the first item I have purchased from LL Bean that I have been completely and utterly disappointed in. After wearing the swim shorts for two days, they faded out so much that I can no longer wear them with the tankini as they are now completely different colours. It is disappointing because I did like the style and fit. I had no problems with the tankini.
