Rated 1 out of 5 by from The sizing doesn't seem accurate A size 20 is more like a size 16...but the quality of the fabric and construction looked very good and I'm sorry I couldn't get a bigger was the largest available

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice shorts, but run small These are nice lightweight shorts for hot weather. I am a sold size 6P in Orvis pants, and I'm glad I read reviews. I got the 8 and they are fine, could not have worn a 6.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will live in these shorts all summer These are a really nice style and weight for summer adventures. Smooth silky feeling quick dry fabric, plenty of pockets, and hidden elastic in the back for comfort and fit without the bulky elastic waist “look”.had to order up 2 sizes for a comfortable fit. Length is perfect, not too short like many other 5’2, 108# and size 6 was perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great summer shorts I've already worn these almost daily since they arrived. I had originally purchased a size 4 thinking they would be too big but they were too tight everywhere. Normally wear size 2 or XS Orvis. Returned them to the store wanting to give up on them but the nice gentleman encouraged me to reorder a 6. I was skeptical but when they arrived I was thrilled, they are perfect. So you my need to go up 2 sizes. they are so comfortable and lightweight, yet have good coverage. Especially like the length, an inch longer would have been good too. Hard to find nice functional outdoor shorts that aren't short- shorts. Pockets are all great, to front and 2 zippered back trimmed in the cute orange accent. Will order another color soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Order a size up Nice light fabric which is what i wanted. I had to send back the size 6 for a size 8 as they are very trim with a low rise. Otherwise I am happy with them.
