Rated 4 out of 5áby joanc Be careful when you wash these
I agree with other reviewers that these are very comfortable, but I mistakenly washed them (once) in warm water, not cold. Though I hung them to dry, the waistband shrunk 1/2 inch and now they aren't as comfortable--so just try to remember: cold water only:)

Rated 4 out of 5áby JMSatGolf Good fit
Good fitting shorts. Not to short, I bought them because of the length. Waist band may be a little unforgiving as far as being a little tight. Overall a very nice pair of shorts for your little one.

Rated 5 out of 5áby pruner Great shorts
These shorts are soft and comfortable. I bought 2 pairs for my daughter, and then I had to buy two more because she liked them so much. Right now my daughter is on crutches, and the shorts do not restrict her range of motion in any way. They are even soft enough to sleep in.

Rated 5 out of 5áby ralgiers Love the Length and Softness
I've had a hard time finding shorts for my 9-yr-old daughter of a modest length and with elastic waist. She won't wear traditional button front type shorts, only those with stretchy waistband. These are soft, comfortable and roomy. Bought size 10, which is a bit on the loose side, but I like the room to grow. Only wish there were more colors and patterns!

Rated 5 out of 5áby casualchicmom So comfortable and not too short!
My daughter loves comfortable, knit shorts, and these are a more modest length than others out there. Wish they came in more solid colors, such as pink and tan. We also have the cropped pants, and love them, too!

Rated 5 out of 5áby mrswh Love!
These shorts are perfect - soft and just the right weight - not too flimsy or too thick. It is hard to find shorts that aren't inappropriately short for young girls, so I am pleased at the length of these. I just wish they had more colors!

Rated 2 out of 5áby Ranunculus Too-short inseam
It's very difficult to find shorts for my 8-year-old daughter that aren't made of flimsy material or too revealing. So I was happy to see these knit shorts on the LL Bean website! When they arrived, I was pleased to see and feel their substantial fabric. But when my daughter tried them on, it was very clear that these are far too short for any active child: the inseam is about 3.5 inches. As soon as she climbs a tree or sits in anything but a demure crossed-leg position, her underpants are flashed to the world. Clearly, not a feature I want for my kid's clothing (or for mine, for that matter!).
When I compare the shorts I received to the ones pictured on the LL Bean website, the website ones look to have an inseam that's about twice as long.
The material is great, the back pocket is nice (though I would love to see these shorts with front pockets?pockets are standard on most boys' clothing but rare on girls' stuff...and girls need pockets, too!), and the seams appear well-stitched. The short inseam is a deal-breaker, though. So these shorts are going back.

Rated 5 out of 5áby shopperbythesea Daughter loves them
If in between sizes, go down. My daughter loves them. Perfect to wear for active lifestyle because it's a modest length.

Rated 5 out of 5áby FamilyKY Good length, Soft fabric
I like these shorts because they are a bit longer than most -- still short enough for play in hot weather, but much more modest than the shorty-shorts most stores carry. The fabric is soft and feels durable.

Rated 4 out of 5áby hello2Freeport Good material, good length
These are soft and are of good weight material. My 10-year-old daughter thought they came up a little high (over her belly button), but this will be covered by her t-shirts. She really likes the fit and feel, and I like that they're more modest in the length.
