Rated 3 out of 5 by NorthernBean Smaller cut
I have at least 7 pairs of this line, various lengths and materials.
These are by far the smallest cut. I have others in 18, 20 and 18W. These in the 18W cannot be done at the waist, though the stretch allows them to zip but be snug.
I like the shorts otherwise and will keep them believing I will fit them soon. Order up if you have other years' that fit as you like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LizzieT My new favorite shorts!
These shorts fit like a dream from the first time I tried them on.
The fabric has a good hand and the cut flatters the female shape without clinging too closely to those figure flaws better left unmentioned. The waistband provides a nice, snug fit without that awful bulge that usually accompanies a comfort waist.
I was so pleased with my first pair, I bought more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by StarCityLabLover Wish the Chinese would use a LADY's zipper!
I have ordered some shorts that the zipper for lady's shorts zips up on the opposite side like men's pants do. I still buy them bec I like the fit but the zipper does get on my nerves. Great fit for these shorts. They are a little longer than expected but that has its purpose also. Not a huge problem. Just the ZIPPER!

These shorts are just straight, plain, no details, like men's shorts. I wanted something more feminine.

I HAVE A THREE PAIRS OF THESE SHORTS AND LOVE THEM. I HAVE THEM IN NAVY AND BEIGE AND THEY ARE SO COMFORTABLE I WEAR THEM OVER AND OVER INSTEAD OF THE OTHERS. THEY FIT ME BEAUTIFULLY AND I FIND THE WAIST HITS ME WHERE I FEEL THE MOST COMFORTABLE AND THE HIPS AND LENGTH ARE PERFECT. I WEAR A SIZE 14 AND WEIGHT 140 POUNDS. THEY MAKE ME LOOK TRIM AND FIT INSPITE OF MY OVERWEIGHT A BIT. I LOVE THEM AND I WOULD BUY SEVERAL MORE PAIRS...BUT I DIDN'T LIKE THE SHADE OF GREEN OR RED THEY CAME IN BUT MAY PURCHASE MORE IN THE NAVY BLUE IF THEY ARE DENIUM BLUE. I LOVE THE FIT AND STYLE AND COMFORT. WISH THEY WERE SLIGHTLY CHEAPER TOO.

Rated 4 out of 5 by walkteacher Comfortable, quality fabric
Substantial fabric & a comfortable fit. These shorts are a tiny bit long for me but the leg openings are generous. These shorts remind me of shorts you would see as part of a uniform. Think: ups delivery person or mail person. Modest length & fit with a comfortable, yet sturdy fabric.

These shorts are very comfortable given the stretch feature. The denim version is great however the twill ones get significantly wrinkled in a very short period of time (after sitting down one time).This was very disappointing since they were purchased for traveling. A pro is they can be dressed up or worn more casually.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by practicaloutdoorperson easy stretch shorts
I just received this pair of shorts and tried them on. They have a perfect fit, the stretch makes them very comfortable. I have several cropped pants in this easy strech material and those have also a great fit and give. I bought this pair of shorts in coral, and they look well coordinated with the v-neck all-cotton tee-shirt in light apricot heather I also bought. The fact that they can be ordered and delivered to the house, without shipping or even return charges makes it altogether easier to Shop at LLBean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by June234 Great fabric, length and cut except for the waist!
These are really comfortable except for the waist. Not sure if it's because they have stretch to them, which you can't tell by the way, but my regular size was really uncomfortable in the waist. So have returned them for the next size up which hopefully won't be too large everywhere else. The waist really starts to go during menopause so it's tricky and good shorts are really hard to find! These are really close but LL Bean needs to fix the waist sizing.
