Rated 5 out of 5 by Glissando Easy Care and Comfy Fit
I will not be able to wear these for some weeks down the road but I must comment on the wonderful fit. The comfort fit waist is a feature I look for in shorts or pants. It is especially nice in the warmer months. Another nice feature is a wrinkle free fabric. When they arrived there was hardly a wrinkle from the trip from LL Bean to my home. Another thing I must comment on: I am still wearing my Bean clothing from years and years ago. Thanks for good and thoughtful products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FreeportVoyager Super Shorts with Real Pockets
These shorts are great. The material has a nice weight and real pockets you can use. I just came back from a long trip and the pockets were a great help. I could put my digital camera and sunglasses in their case in one pocket and my e-reader in the other with no worry of their falling out and it left me hands free to go to/from the boat. The shorts are very comfortable. I do agree with the comment that the pocket can pouch out but can live with this to have the capacity of the pockets.

Rated 1 out of 5 by sabaka want classic fit instead
Why on earth don't you make shorts with a classic (i.e., at waist) fit? These originals just don't fit a lot of us, but we like the LL Bean quality. PLEASE give us some shorts to go along with the crops, etc., in your classic line.

I am going on a trip and need shorts. I ordered 18 Womens and they were too tight at the bottom of the pockets. I then ordered 20 Womens-same problem. They get bigger at the waist but are at least two inches narrower at the bottom of the pocket. I guess I will have to buy long pants and cut them off into shorts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Notahappywalker sizes changing
I bought the adjustable waist and found them to be tighter than the other styles which fit much better. Buying LLBean products for many years and find that the older, and past smaller sizes, fit better! I do check the size chart and that does not help.

I ordered a size 14 as I have always worn. I love the feel and weight of these shorts BUT they were way to large in the waist and all over...I was going to send them back but my husband who is 4 inches taller and 30 pounds heavier is wearing them for his golf shorts! The tag definitely says size 14! Must be mislabeled. Would love to have these shorts but afraid to reorder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by purplechatty Very comfortable and excellent fit
I ordered these shorts in a size 12, black, and I was very pleased with them. They fit me perfectly and after I washed them there was no shrinkage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by janeiniowa My favorite shorts
I bought a pair of these shorts a couple of years ago and I LOVE them! They are stylish and comfortable, and the original fit suits my figure.
Just this summer, I took them on a 10-day vacation and wore them almost every day. They held up well--the comfort waist was easy to wear, and any wrinkles they got from sitting in the car hung out overnight. The longer length made them appropriate for hiking as well as walking around in cities.
I am just hoping that LL Bean will offer more subtle colors--maybe dark gray, olive drab, sage green, brown, denim. And maybe they could also offer this style--with the hidden comfort waist--in long pants, too--I'd buy them!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jan1029 Horrible Fit
The style of these shorts were the worst fitting shorts I have ever tried on. Do not buy these shorts if you have a protruding tummy because the pockets pull out big time. Sorry to say, but had to return these shorts. I guess I cannot order clothes on line.

These shorts use to be the Classic Curvy style that fit me perfectly in my normal size. I ordered my normal size, exchanged them for a larger size, then just asked for a refund. Everything was fine; you didn't need the expandable waistband. I can definitely notice a difference from wearing my older shorts. I don't understand why LLB changed a good thing. Not everyone has the same figure. I'll give your shorts another shot, I just hope you don't mind all the exchanges (refunds) I'll be doing. I hope you didn't change the cut of your Bayside Twill Pants. Please bring back the Classic Curvy!!
