Rated 4 out of 5 by ActiveRetiree09 Why not available in classic fit?
These shorts would be great in a classic fit with regular (not comfort) waist. Please offer this option! I have a very old pair of LL Bean's shorts, super comfortable and stylish, and they were twill, classic waist, 6" inseam, regular (not comfort) waist. Please bring those back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Telliab Good shorts
These shorts fit me well and the fabric is durable and comfortable. I wish there were an option for a regular waistband in the original fit style, not the "comfort" waist, as I don't need the elastic and it makes the waist just a bit more bulky than the shorts used to be with the regular waist.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Synthia Very SMALL
I normally wear a 14 in everything. I actually ordered a 16 so these would be large and lounge.... NOT ! They were so small , as was every item I purchased this time from LLB..... The quality was fine but the sizing way off from anything I've bought in retail stores in my area. Very disappointed. They used to run true to size but not any more. Hope they will correct this. I can see one item running small but every pair of shorts is a little suspicious.

I've had them before and just bought a new pair of these shorts. They are a great length, fit well, and last for years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by pajpaj Classic style... good fit for me
I wanted shorts that were comfortable,that had a classic look and were at the waist. These fit the bill. The new adjustable waist elastic hidden craftily in the waist band is great for me because I have a small waist. The last LLBean style did not have the adjustable waist and I had to move the button to make it tighter. So that is good. I'd like to see LLBean make the pant legs a pinch narrower for a more modern look. This style pant may not be good for women with wider waists... the expandable waist band does expand but it has a snug feeling fit.
Thanks LLBean for making good quality shorts that are at the waist. I really don't like the lower waist styles. They are not comfortable or flattering on most women. Would also love to see some bermuda shorts with a side zipper for a smooth front.

Rated 2 out of 5 by tcsmom52 Bayside shorts w/ comfort waist.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring back the Bayside Twill shorts with the regular, non elastic waist.
Also PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make the shorts in, at least the "sit at waist" style BUT preferably "sits low on the waist" (low isn't all that low!)
Hidden comfort waist pulls the inside of the pockets out as it did on the bayside twill pants I had.
Don't understand why LL Bean changes what previously has been a very successful product
am commenting because I can no longer purchase the shorts like I have now.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Nicknamechoiceislimited Way too tight in the waist
LL Bean is starting to lose it's consistency of sizes. This is the second item I've bought in the past 2 months that has been too tight in the waist. It's going back. I'm disappointed since the color is perfect for what I wanted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ThisbesMom Great fit.
I love these shorts. I am 5'1"and about 105 lbs, and they are the first shorts I have found in ages that actually fit me and have the waist in the right place. Like all LLBean clothing, they are excellent quality, and the only complaint I have is that they don't have them in white - why not?? I would buy 2-3 pairs in white if they were available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Greatvet Very nice, but run quite big!
I ordered these shorts and purchased the size according to the size guide. When I received them, I was disappointed. The waist was at least 1 1/2 inches too big. I have a 28" waist, and I ordered a size 8 (according to the size guide). The shorts are very nice. They run a little long as well. If you purchase them, size down by 1 size. I am exchanging these for a size 6.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SusieQM I want Comfort Waist Back for the Bayside shorts
I purchased the Bayside twill shorts with the comfort waist like you have in the pants and I like them sooooooo much better than the hidden comfort waist.
I tried the hidden comfort waist and when they give you the little stretch you need it makes the pockets on the front all bunchy and it it does not lay correctly. The comfort waist is sooooo much nicer with the just the back of the shorts with elastic cover waist band.
Please, Please, Please bring back comfort waist Bayside Twill SHORTS. They are perfect for Golf.
