I hope you don't stop making theseBest shorts I've ever owned. I bought all the colors, including the pink ones you used to have. Hope you don't stop making these and add more colors. Like others have said, these are great if you have a straighter figure. I'm so tired of women's clothes being made only for hourglass figures. I can't tolerate restrictive waist bands (especially elastic) but if I find shorts that fit my waist, the legs are huge. These are perfect, and I like the drawstring closure! I also like that they are light, because heavy shorts fall down on us straight figured gals due to not having enough hips or booty to hold them up. Please don't stop making these!

Legs are tight[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The material of these shorts is great. It's lightweight and perfect for being outside in the summer. The fit in the waist is completely accurate and the length is as well. However, the holes for your legs is super tight! I am a size 4 and don't do massive workouts where I have large thighs but I am fit. I find myself constantly having to pull these down. Even walking my dog, they ride up to look like swimsuit bottoms. For those with really petite legs or who don't mind having to constantly adjust I'm sure they work fine but I wouldn't have bought them if I had gotten them in a store instead of online.

Disappointed[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I really like the fabric of these shorts and the fact they have the 5 inch inseam. The waist and hips fit well, even a bit roomy. The thighs are skin tight. These are not for anyone who has average or muscular legs. They looked more like biking shorts once I had them on (and I am a biker)! Not a flattering look for casual wear. I wear a size 4 in most other brands, but sized up to a 6 as I find Columbia runs small for me generally, but sadly these did not work out.

Super Comfy, well fitting shortsThese shorts are so comfy, you will consider wearing them as jammies.... but don't because they look too good to waste wearing in bed! If you are a bit curvy, with a smaller waist and a larger rear end, you will love that there is no gap at the waist in these shorts. They are made with a nice, lightweight, stretchy material. Even though the fabric is lightweight, it is substantial, not cheap. They wash up beautifully and are virtually wrinkle free if you pull them hot out of the dryer to hang or fold. A great buy for me, and I think for you too!

These shorts are the perfect length.As a 40 year old mother of three, I wanted some shorts that are sporty and comfortable yet look nice to wear to my kids' ball games, tumbling practice, etc. Most of the athletic shorts available for women have a 4" inseam which I feel are too short. These shorts have a 5" inseam and I find them to be the perfect length for me. The fabric is super soft and comfortable. My pairs of shorts have gone threw multiple washings and still look like the first time I wore them. I wish they were available in a number of other colors, especially black.

Very versatile[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have these "anytime outdoor" bottoms in shorts, capris and pants. Love them all, they're comfortable and nice looking for my casual office and perfect for when work takes me outside in all kinds of weather. I love the drawstring waist, as I have a hard time finding anything that fits my straight figure. The one thing that would make them better would be a little elastic in the drawstring and/or the waist band, if I'm very active I have to tie them very tight to stay up and that's not always comfortable.

Just a little smallNice, but crunches up in the crotch in front. They look nice until you walk, then the front bunches up.
I have two dozen pair of Columbia pants in size 8, but these are just a little smaller.

My Favorite![This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I first purchased these a couple of years ago and fell in love with the comfort. I started with a size 16 and after losing weight last year I was able to buy 12's this year. I can still wear the 16s and 14s since the shorts are so forgiving and have a drawstring. They stand up to use very well. My oldest pair has some pilling between the legs but my suspicion is that happened when I washed them with some fluffy towels. The blue is a great color. I also have them in the black and the green.
