Rated 3 out of 5áby vidalia traditional fit is correct
These shorts aren't cut to fit anyone carrying any extra weight around their middle. They are cut to fit a young person's figure or a very trim middle aged person's body. These are the shorts I would have worn 25 years ago...

Rated 5 out of 5áby HawaiianHulaGirl Great Pair of Denim Shorts!
I absolutely LOVE, yes LOVE, these shorts! I generally take a size 16 in bottoms. However, for these shorts I went a size up and ordered an 18 misses using the size chart. The waistband is soooo comfortable, the denim stretch forgiving and complimentary to my fuller backside, and the cut and dark denim wash are wonderfully slimming to my figure. Thank you L.L. Bean, for making clothes for "real-shaped" people. You've gained another promoter and lifelong customer!

Rated 3 out of 5áby sjw912 And they used to be SO good...
Easy Stretch Twill pants, crops and shorts have been my go to choice for several years. I ordered the same items this year as in the past and they are definitely smaller than previous years (no I haven't gained weight). I got out my 2013 version of the crops and they are significantly less tight than the 2014 versions. Yes, I can order a size up...but that's disappointing. Back they go and I am now on a quest for a new fav...bummed!

Rated 5 out of 5áby CindyFromMA great style and fit
I have this pair of shorts and 2 in the chino fabric along with 2 pairs of the jeans. I love the fit. Just wish now that LLBean offered this jean shorts in a different color.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Prairie1 Nice Shorts
I really like the fabric and style of these shorts. The length is perfect, and the stretch is just right. They retain their shape nicely. My only con is that the rise is too high for me. Otherwise they are comfortable. I like the dark wash, and the pocket style and placement is flattering.

Rated 4 out of 5áby shortsgirl Professional, comfortable shorts
These shorts are great--they fit well and allow me to move (I commute to work by bicycle and I have no trouble riding in these). The cut is loose enough in the front to have some forgiveness there, and the cut in the back is flattering.
One criticism is that the material starts to pill quickly around the crotch area, but it mercifully only pills in quite small units and this may also be from my frequently riding my bike in them.
The waist in these is good as well. The give in the elastic is just enough to feel comfortable all day and it avoids having the actual elastic band in the side.
Please, more colors soon so I can expand my work appropriate collection of shorts!

Rated 3 out of 5áby Pozzi Too short
I love the fit of these pants, shorts and cropped pants. The touch of stretch make them very comfortable. And, the waistband does not gape in the back. I am 5'4". The shorts are not long enough, and after washing they are a bit shorter. I think they would be more flattering in 9-10" length.

Rated 4 out of 5áby ktoe Twill Easy Stretch Short
I enjoyed wearing these comfortable Bermuda style shorts. I even got a compliment on them. The waist is a little tight and the legs a bit wide. The elastic waistband gave me the slack I needed to fit, but pills somewhat. I bought the black pair and they are a versatile wardrobe basic. With the waist being higher, shorter blouses stayed tucked in and slight "muffin top" fat was covered while still looking fashionable.

Rated 2 out of 5áby daydreambeliever Shorts too small
I ordered these shorts thinking they would be a great fit as I have purchased the pants and absolutely love them. The shorts were extremely tight and uncomfortable. I compared them to a pair of the pants and found them to be cut a size smaller. I returned them.

Rated 5 out of 5áby prazHim great shorts
I just love these denim stretch shorts. I was a little hesitant to order my usual size 16 since many LLB items seem to run small on me but I'm glad I ordered my regular size. They fit perfectly, come to my waist where I like my pants to be and are just so comfortable. I'm really amazed. I can bend and stretch and do anything and they don't bind or pull anywhere...I really love them. They look good too.
