    Women's L.L.Bean Stretch UPF Shorts, 9" is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 145.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from No inner panty Board shorts have big leg holes. They need to so you can maneuver in them. But when you sit on the beach or anywhere, you can see up those legs. This is the first pair of board shorts I have ever owned that did not have an inner panty of the same material. Oddly, all the L.L. Bean men's swim shorts and Suplex shorts have that built in. And for just $34.95 women can buy a bottom to wear inside these shorts so people can't see all the way to your navel if you sit with your arms crossed on the top of your knees. I like a lot of things about these shorts but women are getting shortchanged without some kind of inner protection when they are worn as swimwear. I hoped to wear these with a tankini top.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from New but NOT improved Was happy to finally receive my swim shorts...until I tried them on! I have a pair of swim shorts from LL Bean from a few years ago that are great. These current swim shorts are a good fit through the waist and hips, but the leg area is extremely baggy. Not a very flattering look when dry, can't imagine what they will look like after getting out of the water! Very disappointed they are not more of a tapered fit. I can't understand why they would change a product design if the old ones were good. Unhappy customer:(

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, a great pair of board shorts! Love these! Bought two. Blue and navy. For sizing I went with what fits me in Vista pants - size 4. My waist is not a 4 as measured (muscles in back fill me out more) but these fit a tad lower plus they have elastic sides that yield to such discrepancy. The elastic waist on sides does not bind! Yes, the legs are fuller as one wrote but the loose legs allow for effortless movement while surfing, chasing kids in the surf, and just general beach play. They dry fast like they were never wet!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Labels What is going on at Bean? Why have you slapped your name label on the front of these shorts? As a long time Bean shopper the labeling is just getting out of control. Trust me and others who have mentioned it, that no one runs to buy your products because our thigh or chest has your name on it. Please respect the fashion you have created and let us tell others how much we like your products.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best water shorts I've had! I hate buying bathing suit bottoms because they are never long enough! These "bathing suit" shorts are long enough to hide what i don't want people seeing! They come to about 2" above my knees. They are super lightweight, and dry amazingly fast! Great for swimming, boating, kayaking, even working around the yard! I want to get more in other colors but they are sold out everywhere! i'll keep trying because they are definitely worth the price! A great product- the best I've ever had!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable but but VERY loose in the waist These are really comfortable for walking along the beach, but as soon as I put my phone in my pocket the shorts started to slip down and look (and feel!) like they were about to slide down to my ankles. I didn't dare wear them into the surf because they were so loose I thought a strong wave my pull them right off of me! I ordered a size 12, and all my LL Bean shorts and pants are size 12 (and some of them feel almost too tight). So I was quite surprised at how loose these shorts are. A drawstring in the waistband would be helpful but alas you are at the mercy of elastic. If I ordered these again, I would order a size down.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too Big I love these shorts! According to the size chart my measurements best fit a size 10. After reading customer reviews, many recommended to order a size down so I decided to order size 8. They fell down to my hips. I returned them for a size 6 and they fit perfectly!
