Rated 3 out of 5 by Ningu Good-looking shorts with a problem
They look great and would fit well without the elastic.but that elastic doesn't stretch. It puts a constant squeeze on the waist.

These fit perfectly! I couldn't be more pleased. I have a hard to fit body - waist small in proportion to hips/seat. Most items I purchase have to be altered, especially if purchased from a web site or catalog, and even when I pay close attention to the sizing charts. So imagine my delight when I tried these on and they fit perfectly! No alterations needed. And the quality of the fabric and workmanship is excellent.

Have been looking for a pair of "go to" shorts and I found them. I am 5'9" 154 lbs and a 12 fits perfectly. Comfortable fabric, no see through. Good length, doesn't reveal too much leg when sitting down. Deep pockets plus cargo so you can get by without carrying a bag. I'd say if you are debating between two sizes, go bigger. You will love these.

I received them today. The Stone color is beautiful and size 14 (my normal size) fit perfect. I plan to buy another pair.

Rated 1 out of 5 by TKDTigers Shorts Run Small
I have always been pleased with any LL Bean items I have ordered in the past but not with this pair of shorts!!!! I pretty much wear a size 10 in everything but these were too tight in the waist even in the 12 that I ordered. I will never wear them again yet I can't return them because I have worn and washed them. :-(

Rated 4 out of 5 by lewistonshopper567 A little too tight and too short
The jacket was perfect. Have worn it many times already but the shorts unfortunately I didn't try on as I had purchased the identical shorts in a tan color on a previous visit and they were a perfect fit. When I tried on the navy shorts at home I found they were a bit snug and slightly shorter in length. I guess its best to try on every item as they can vary in fit even though they are marked as the same size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JD7374 Cargo Shorts with hidden comfort waist
Finally shorts designed with usable side pockets that when you sit down items don't fall out! Cargo pockets sufficient and don't bag out. Comfort waist is truly comfortable for all day wear. Length is ideal for the mature women who knows when a longer length is more flattering. Shorts feel and look great. These shorts are the best I've found in ages. I have now bought several others in other colors. Highly recommended!

Rated 3 out of 5 by KatyAnn Returned Them
I did not remove the tags but returned these even tho they fit well. The main reason I started buying from LLBean is that clothing and even suitcases are produced with less chemical use and that is important to me. These shorts smelled like formaldehyde was used in their production, probably the wrinkle resistance chemical. I hope that this is not a new trend with Bean's clothing. I love other clothing and suitcases I've purchased from LL Bean. I gave them 3 star and would recommend them to friends that do not mind chemicals in their clothing.
