Rated 1 out of 5 by MilfordBandMom from Disappointed I love, love the bayside twill shorts, but I hate, hate the hidden comfort waist. I wear an 8 and need a belt, even with this the "hidden" comfort fabric shows so it isn't really hidden, and they just did not lay right. Sending all 3 pair back. I'm a mom and it's hard to find shorts that fit and aren't low rise #so inappropriate for someone of 40#, and I am in desperate need of replacement shorts for my other bayside twills that have lasted at least 5 years, but are now worn. I'm begging you to please, please, please bring back these shorts without the hidden comfort as well for those of us who prefer them that way.

Rated 1 out of 5 by gardenjean from Extremely disappointed in hidden comfort waist I hope you are listening L.L. Bean! I have a total of 20 pair of your Bayside "comfort" waist pants, crops and shorts in size 14. This year you only offered the 9" short in the "hidden comfort" waist. I ordered one pair in my size 14. The "hidden comfort" waist band pulled out to show the lining in the pockets, and, I found the cut much tighter than in previous years. I notice other reviews said the exact same thing. Please, Please, go back to the drawing board and offer the Bayside pants, crops and shorts in the comfort waist that you have carried for years. I need new summer shorts for golf and will have to look elsewhere this year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FreeportVoyager from Super Shorts... These are well made shorts, great fabric with wide legs that help keep cool me in Florida summers. Pockets are marvelous, can carry phone, e-reader, keys and sunglasses in a case. I just wish there were more colors as there have been other years. I was waiting to see what new color would be out for this summer and there is none. What happened to at least having one new color for summer? Light blue, red, mallard green, as you have done previous years. Please bring out at least one new color for summer. I was so looking forward to buying a new color this year.

Rated 1 out of 5 by theblonde from Don't buy these shorts I bought a pair of LLBean shorts about 6 months ago that were perfect. I loved them so much I decided to buy them in every color I could find, so I ordered 3 more pairs. When the new shorts arrived I was dismayed to find that the shorts had been re-engineered. The waistband, instead of having a very subtle band of elastic sewn inside, has been changed to a tab-type elastic. When you wear the shorts, and the tab pulls, it also pulls out the pockets so that the lining of the pockets shows on the outside of the shorts. The lining is a different color from the shorts and looks quite odd from the side. I would not buy these again and returned my 3 shorts to LL Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DocCG from Made Like They Used To! I got these for my wife. She has had a hard time in recent years finding shorts that are made, for lack of a better term, "like they used to make 'em." Meaning: not too tight, or straight leg, or short, or low waist; but with a longer inseam, a bit of flair in the leg, and a waist at the waist. In addition, these are made of a good, soft, medium weight cotton fabric. And the "comfort waist" means they don't bind even when she has to kneel or bend. And they look really good on her. So, she is pleased, and so am I. Why don't they make women's shorts like they used to?

Rated 5 out of 5 by janeiniowa from My favorite shorts I bought a pair of these shorts a couple of years ago and I LOVE them! They are stylish and comfortable, and the original fit suits my figure. Just this summer, I took them on a 10-day vacation and wore them almost every day. They held up well--the comfort waist was easy to wear, and any wrinkles they got from sitting in the car hung out overnight. The longer length made them appropriate for hiking as well as walking around in cities. I am just hoping that LL Bean will offer more subtle colors--maybe dark gray, olive drab, sage green, brown, denim. And maybe they could also offer this style--with the hidden comfort waist--in long pants, too--I'd buy them!

Rated 1 out of 5 by BSWN from These used to be my favorite shorts Oh my! I have loved the Bayside twill shorts for many years and own numersous pairs. They are my go to shorts for relaxing. Unfortunately, I gained a few pounds this year and when I got ready to order a size up I noticed that the waist has changed. You can no longer get the plain waist. I ordered the next size up and was very upset when they came in. The comfort waist gaps on the sides and is not only unattractive, it is also uncomfortable. In fact when layed next to my shorts with the original waist that are a size smaller, they are actually smaller in the waist. PLEASE bring back the plain waistband for those of us that don't want any elastic in the waist.

Rated 2 out of 5 by golfinggammy from Bring back the curvey sizes Please bring back the curvey size clothes (bayside shorts and slacks) you had two years ago. This new sizing is not a true curvey size. In order to fit my hips, I have to order a larger size and thern pay ($20.00) to have the waist taken up. The real curvey size shorts fit well in ther hips ad waist. Also, the quality of ther dye has also changed. I've had to send back shorts in navy blue and black several times because they fade (never us to fade). What have you changed...material, dye, where they are made?? These shorts are not of the same quality I am use to getting my L.L. Bean. I'm very disappointerd in L.L. Bean.
