Rated 2 out of 5 by SunbeltGirl from The legs are too wide and long for me. I love the fabric in these shorts and the beige color is lovely. BUT, the legs stuck straight out on me. I don't think my legs would be considered skinny but the leg holes on these shorts is huge. I started comparing the leg holes on these shorts with my old ones I wanted to replace, and my old ones were not nearly as big. Plus, on the model they are quite above her knee. On mine they hit me right above the knee and it did not look good from the back especially. I'm 5'7" so I'm shocked the they hit right at the top of my knees. So LLBean please come out with shorts that don't have such big legs. :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by carg from Needs longer zipper, better sewn buttons LLBean's Bayside Twill Original Fit Hidden Comfort Waist 9" Cargo Short Misses have an attractive line. I have within the last year purchased 2 pairs of these shorts,Misses Size 6, and find that the waist fits perfectly. I have given 3 stars, however, since I have two complaints: !) The zipper needs to be at least one inch longer like LLBean use to offer for sits-at-waist shorts and slacks without elastic inserted in waist for easy fit. It is 5 inches with 4 3/4 inches left to the crotch seam. I find this to be a strain on the zipper. The relaxed waist even by definition does not extend to the bottom of the zipper opening. 2) The button comes loose after a few months wear and has to be resewn to waist. Overall, if one doesn't mind the two complaints above, there should be no problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MBeachLover from Runs small So far I have washed them, but have yet to wear them. They washed up nicely, and the fabric remained wrinkle free. Before my purchase, I did read a lot of reviews that stated they ran small, so I did order one size up from my normal jeans size and they fit very well. I usually prefer a relaxed fit in my shorts, and although I did have to order a bigger size, they fit well in the waist, hips and legs/length too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by oldtimer7 from Why change a classic? Bean's have been making the same flannel shirt for 100 years because they are comfortable and people like them. Why then do they not do the same for women's shorts? These have "hidden" elastic in the waist, but it is two pieces of short, 4-5" elastic, and not nearly as forgiving as the shorts they used to carry which had full elastic all around the waist. The next size up would be too large, and these are too tight. Now what kind of sizing is that??!! If you can wear them, they look nice, but you better be a teenager or a runner to be slim enough for the size chart to work for you,

Rated 5 out of 5 by BonnieH from Most convenient pants possible! I have two pair of these and I am in the process of ordering three more. They are perfect for purse-free living! My cell phone fits perfectly in the left thigh pocket, and my keys fit perfectly in the right thigh pocket. Deep hip pockets mean I can carry my credit card and drive license without fear of them dropping out. Besides all that, they are comfortable and always look neat and appropriate in any situation where shorts might be appropriate. My only regret about these pants is that Bean doesn't make them with long legs for colder weather! They would be the only pants I would buy--and again, they would be appropriate anywhere a woman might wear pants. OK. I take that back. I also regret that they don't make them in MORE COLORS!!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by fresh from legs too wide for this 60+ year old Shorts were well constructed and I thought they would wear well. I followed advice here and ordered one side larger. The waist was fine but the legs and thigh area were much too big and very unflattering. I usually wear a 12 and am 142 lbs and 5'5". Am returning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RebeccaLynne from Not Perfect, but close enough I saw the cargo shorts when I visited the website to buy a new pair of 9" shorts to replace my well worn pair. I have four pairs of LLBean 9" shorts all total. Three of my old pairs are without the elastic insert. I don't particularly like the elastic because it squeezes me, but I can live with it. The cargo shorts seem to be cut a bit skimpy through the hips; I bought size 14, and they fit like my previously purchased non-cargo style size 12. I DO like the two extra #cargo# pockets. They are just right for my flip phone and car keys. These shorts aren't perfect, but close enough that I'll order an additional pair, because I love the roomy front pockets as well as the cargo pockets. There is a back pocket as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JD7374 from Cargo Shorts with hidden comfort waist Finally shorts designed with usable side pockets that when you sit down items don't fall out! Cargo pockets sufficient and don't bag out. Comfort waist is truly comfortable for all day wear. Length is ideal for the mature women who knows when a longer length is more flattering. Shorts feel and look great. These shorts are the best I've found in ages. I have now bought several others in other colors. Highly recommended!
