Rated 5 out of 5 by SwedishKate I love these
Great for a workout, they have a little pocket for my Fitbit or iPod - they wash and dry fast. They fit me a little loose in the waist, which I prefer. Length is long enough not to be embarassed going into the grocery store in them. I just bought my 2nd pair.

I have been looking for running shorts for quite some time and I thought these might work, although they are not "running shorts." Almost, but not quite. They are nice shorts, nice length, mid-rise. But, I have a small waist (compared to hips/thighs) and these were just too loose in the waist. There was no drawstring to modify the fit at all. Sadly, they did not work for me.

I love these shorts! They fit very well and cover me w/o overdoing it (I am 5'3", 110 and the 4P).

Rated 4 out of 5 by Walker529 Nice .. Suggest a drawstring..
These are very nice shorts. Super fit and length for a female over 50. Wash nicely, dry great. However, I have narrow hips and note (like I believe I saw in an earlier review) that the shorts will eventually start to slide down. A drawstring would make a great addition to how nice these shorts are. I love the pair I have but would hesitate to buy another pair unless LL Bean adds a drawstring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hallihunt Best running/walking shorts ever!
Although these shorts tend to run a little large (I normally wear a medium but buy these in a small), if you get the right size, you will be extremely satisfied. The liner is the only one I've found in recent years that fits without riding up or cutting - and the ones I bought four years ago fit as well as the ones I bought this year after much wear and many washes. I just ran a 10K in the pouring rain and these shorts didn't get waterlogged - they stayed comfortable the whole way. They do not have strings, buttons, or bunching elastic around the waist and are very flattering for many shapes. I have recommended to several other women and they all love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Valere LOVE these shorts!
I originally bought 2 pair, loved them and ordered 2 more pair in different colors. The fit is great, they're comfortable, and look really good. They're great for the gym, walking, just wearing around the house and are long enough to wear out for everyday.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JZom Good purchase
I got these to go kayaking in, and they were perfect. They are a good fit - I am usually a size 8 and ordered a small - and are lined on the inside. They also have a cute little pocket so you can put something in there when you are on the water.

Rated 1 out of 5 by softballmomof3 huge waist
Loved everything about the shorts except the waist. There is no drawstring. I am 5'3" 130 lbs, ordered a small and the waist was HUGE! Had to return them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by llberkeley Absolutely love these shorts!
I bought these shorts because I was looking for something comfortable for exercise as well as for casual wear around the house. I also was looking for maximal coverage! I loved these the second I opened the package. The fabric is soft and silky yet looks crisp and fresh when wearing (not "droopy'). I am thrilled to report that the fit definitely runs a little large. I am about 5'5" and 160 lbs with a generous tummy and these are comfortable in a Medium! The waist band is wide and goes up at least a half inch above my belly button. The fit in the leg is roomy, not quite our Mom's gym bloomers but headed more toward that type of fit. I still find them well-fitting for exercise, and frankly I appreciate the full coverage for the fanny region. Built-in panty is also a plus! A definite two thumbs-up!
