Rated 5 out of 5 by MissMist Great fabric and fit
Finally, someone has pants that sit at traditional waistline! I've bought several pants and shorts since re-discovering LLBean. On Bayside styles, rise just fits--I would prefer a bit more room, but that's the only bad thing I can say about them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NancyGK Comfy shorts
Comfortable is an understatement! I am short and high-waisted and never thought I'd wear shorts with an elastic waste for good fit. The hidden "comfort waist" in the Bayside Twill Shorts makes for a comfortable fit without looking too old fashioned.
These shorts are good for gardening but look good enough for the golf course, too.
I have an older pair that has two back pockets which I prefer. My new pair only has one back pocket (plus the two front pockets.)
I would recommend the Comfort Waist shorts to everyone.

In the past have had problems with the waist in L L Bean pants. Don't have a little waist (sad) and they didn't fit me. Love the new original fit hidden confort waist.

As a Floridian ,I spend much of my time in shorts. These are similar to a pair I had years ago that I still wear .These are even better because of the hidden comfort waist. They wash and dry so beautifully I bought another pair in navy. These shorts are great for a carefree lifestyle!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigSkyMama Perfect twills for the "bayside" or golf course!
I just received my navy Bayside Twill Shorts with the 7" inseam, and I couldn't be more pleased. They are snappy looking, fit well, and the navy is exactly as I wanted, not an "off color". I ordered my usual Reg. Size 8; I'm 5'3", 120#s. When I wash new clothing, I always use cold water and hang the garment to dry on the drying rack. I haven't washed them yet, but I don't think there will be an issue. I'm not one to worry whether or not I need to iron; I don't mind touching them up a bit! I'm looking forward to wearing them as soon as we get our Montana Spring or Summer!

The width of the leg opening much too wide, did not provide a neat and attractive appearance; snug waist with no give; fabric was very nice and colors are great

Rated 3 out of 5 by Suzidvt Too much waist
For me, the comfort waist on shorts is overkill. Too much material around my waist for summer.
Albeit frayed, I'm still wearing the best LLBean shorts I've had (O GTA3 100% cotton, plain front, 7" inseam). They are simple and sit slightly below the waist. Please bring them back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by snowgirrl Lovely shorts, great quality and cut
I purchased (and returned) 3 pairs: 1 khaki, 2 black. They were terrific and I would've kept them, but the 7" inseam looked really dorky on me. I need a 5" inseam, which at age 56 I shouldn't be able to wear anymore. The longer lengths just don't look right, however. I could've kept them as the fit was excellent and the fabric quality is great, but I didn't want to pay to have them all altered. It's too bad, really. I desperately need shorts and LL Bean's quality is always superb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GreenMtnLady comfortable, perfect fit
I was thrilled to find a woman's short with a normal waistline! For me, comfort is a waistband that sits at my waistline, not somewhere below, and the expandable insert in the waistband adds to the comfort. Holds its size in washing and fabric is very easy care. I ordered a second pair immediately after wearing just twice.
