Rated 5 out of 5 by CRTGrammie Very versatile!
Love these shorts. I use them as a bathing suit, paddling shorts and working around the house. They fit well & I love the pockets as well as their easy care. I wish they came in other colors.

With my old lady legs, these are terrific. Even sort of cute. And they have pockets!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Grateful65 Stiff fabric, shorts fit
I bought these shorts to pair with an LL Bean tankini top, in a 12 (my usual size) and 14 in case they ran small. The 12 fit, but I really didn't care for the stiff nylon type fabric, and the leg openings were wider than I wanted for a bathing suit bottom. They really are a "shorts" fit as opposed to a tighter "boy shorts" bathing suit bottom fit, and didn't look nice with the more form-fitting tankini top. Returned both.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Shelby1 short
I bought a size small. The length was too short, but the waist was too large. It looked bulky around the waist and was shorter than I hoped. Unflattering, I returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by popupcamper Love these
This is the third pair I have bought. The first 2 lasted 10 years, I am comfortable stopping at the grocery or sandwich shop on the way to the beach in them without a cover up.

Love these shorts. I can walk around and not feel like I'm only wearing a swimsuit. Very comfortable too!!!! I would higher recommend these to everyone. :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by pattypom22 Needs spandex
As I wear this riding my bicycle to the pool, I feel that it has no give for any activity, including gentle bike riding. It needs some spandex like most bathing suits have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DiehardLLBeanFan Comfortable!
I haven't worn these in water yet as they are for a trip in January so my review is just based on trying them on at home. I love the fit because of the length, which is not the short-short you find in stores, nor are they down to your knees. They are a more flattering length at around mid to upper thigh. I also appreciate that they are waist high and don't sit way down on the hips. I suspect that when getting in and out of the water this feature will keep them from having to be pulled up all of the time. I have a pair in another brand which sit on the hip and that is a problem with them. The elastic waist combined with the adjustable tie is a nice additional feature. I like the pretty colors which I think will be easy to coordinate with many different swimsuit tops.

Rated 4 out of 5 by pattypom22 Baggie Legs
I bought the large. It's a little big, but it fits on my butt. The legs are very baggie, so if you have a big butt but skinnier legs, order two sizes. I'm returning the large and wanna try the medium in exchange.

Rated 4 out of 5 Excellent fit and very comfortable.
This pair is a replacement for the a pair I bought two years ago that faded badly in the chlorine saturated pools. They are very nice, but I wish they would have maintained their color as nicely as the striped top.
