Rated 2 out of 5 by DevotedLLBeanShopper Disappointed
Once again, the shipping was lightning fast, which I love! The color and material were very nice, but the legs are ridiculously wide. Unfortunately, I am sending back. : (

Rated 5 out of 5 by jeffsdate Run smaller than Baysides, but I love them
Until now, Bean's Bayside Twill shorts have always been the best fit for me, though they tend to be a little snug in the waist even when hips are fine. The Easy Stretch Shorts have more give in the waist, the fabric is softer, and they seem more flattering. Also, I love the soft green color. But I did have to go up a size in these. No problem; I just bought my 4th pair!

I have several pairs of LL Bean shorts which I enjoy. However, I wish they would either print or use another method of attaching the tags in the back. I have had several skin irritations caused by the tags rubbing. The tags are securely stitched in and are frustrating to remove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dixietoo Love these shorts!
First time I've tried LL Bean ladies shorts and I absolutely love them. Perfect length and a natural waist that isn't too tight. I've had it with low rise shorts and pants that constantly have to be pulled up. That doesn't happen with these. I will be buying additional pairs of these. I highly recommend for anyone wanting an ultra comfortable pair of shorts that are a great length.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DebinMaine Best Shorts I've Ever Owned!
My title says it all. I have 6 pairs of these shorts (am losing weight so have purchased smaller sizes this year) and would buy more if they came in different colors, like white (it IS summer), maybe that faded red, navy, faded green and the old color: stone. They fit very well and I love the stretch waist and the stretch twill. They are my go to shorts. Please never phase them out! I love this waist - don't know why it isn't offered in more items. I have jeans, capris, and long twills with this waist. Would love it in a faded denim.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KonaLynn Super comfortable shorts!
These shorts are exceptionally comfortable, and the longer length is ideal for those of us who prefer that! My only recommendation is that LLBean offer colors that are suitable for summer, like WHITE.

Rated 4 out of 5 by pwm68 Good fit for curves
These will become my go to shorts. I am curvy, smallish waist, the side pockets lay flat but, the back pockets need to go, they bring nothing to pocket party, just add bulk where is it not wanted or needed. Hits me just a tad above the knee with a nice bit of stretch. Brought a couple more, a good wardrobe staple. Paired with a nice white shirt for a dressier look. No "creeping up" on the inside of thighs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by FloridasHome4Us Hate the zipper
This is the first time I've purchased pants from LL Bean and I was shocked when I put these shorts on and found the zipper on the "wrong" side - who makes them like that any more?? Even if they had fit well, which they didn't, I would not have kept them. I've loved the ts and shirts I've purchased but I'll be passing on the pants, sadly. Sorry, very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by AT135 Going back to LLBean
I was debating on size in these shorts (twill, not denim) so got the garment measurements from LLBean. I ordered a skirt in the same line. The shorts *should* have fit well. The waist was a little loose but workable when I first put these shorts on. Halfway through the day, they had stretched out so much that they had dropped well below my waist and ended up hanging just below my knees. Same thing happened with the skirt.
I'm 5'7" and have worn an 18 in the Bayside back elastic style for years; they fit extremely well but are no longer available, as these too have gone to this "hidden comfort" waist. I thought I'd try this this new waistband and stretch fabric style, but between the fabric and the stretchy waistband, these pieces looked frumpy and baggy after just a couple hours of wear. Very disappointed, but my husband had a good laugh.

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.
