Women's Fit 3 7-Day 10" Shorts
I ordered these in a size 16 and the fit is just perfect. I'm 5'10", 175 lbs for reference. Can't wait to wear these on vacation this year.

Good for "pear" shaped figures
I have a "pear" shaped figure (smaller waist, bigger hips), so most Lands End pants are way too big in the waist for me. These elastic-waist pants solve that problem. Unfortunately, the elastic bunches up so much, it's not an attractive fit in the back. Also, the back sits lower than the front, so it's not a flattering profile. If you tend to wear your shirts untucked, this wouldn't be a problem, but I tuck mine in, so it's not as nice looking as I had hoped. I wish Lands End would make pants with a smaller waist without the elastic.

The fit was very small and now I will have to lose some weight for them to fit correctly.
I thought Fit 3 would be OK. I was wrong.

I really wanted these shorts but as with most of my pants and shorts purchases had to return because in my size the waist is much too small and when I go up a size the shorts look huge around the leg area too bad they are really nice shorts

comfortable and fit true to size
These shorts have a higher waist which keeps the pants from slipping down when I am active. I have trouble with the lower waisted shorts doing this! I used the size chart to make sure I was ordering the right size and it worked well. The shorts aren't tight but not too loose either. I don't like tight fitting clothes. The elastic waist band in the back is a bit bulky but I tend to wear my shirts untucked so that isn't a problem for me. This is the first time I have ordered shorts/pants with this elastic waist band feature and it is definitely comfortable. The length is also fine coming above my knees be a few inches. I am 5'9" tall.

These shorts are ALMOST perfect.
It's very hard to find shorts that aren't mid-rise so I bought two of these.They're a good length and the legs are tapered without being snug. However, I wish Lands End would make these shorts without the elastic in the back so that they would not bunch up. It seems that all of the 7 day shorts and pants no longer have the traditional waist with belt loops which is the style I prefer. I wear a sixe 4 and don't need an elastic waist! It would be great if Lands End would offer a choice, as you used to.

Great Shorts . . . but
I own several pair of these shorts, and just ordered another pair in stone as my existing pair is now relegated to the work-&-gardening category. I'm disappointed not to be able to also get a new pair in white, which I also have. Two details I like better on my earlier shorts: NOT having the longer tab at the waist, and the very nice double line stitching at the hem, which is a great finished look. I'd be perfectly happy if you'd go back to those finish details!

Love everything about these shorts
These shorts are so perfect for me that I ordered a second pair and wear both constantly. They come to the waist (which is so much more comfortable for me than low riders, have pockets (an absolute necessity), and are at the knee. Will order another pair next summer if they are offered in some fun colors (like yellow, red, green, hot pink, etc.).

Sizing for shorts has changed
I have worn these longer length shorts for several years & love them. Have always worn a size 14 as the fit is perfect, however, this summer I ordered two new pairs in a size 14 but sizing had changed. One pair fit too tight and the other pair seemed to be almost a size smaller so both pairs had to be returned. Love these shorts so reordered in size 16.

These Shorts are the only ones on the market that fit me perfectly.
I am and have always been narrow in the waist and fuller in the hips. These shorts fit perfectly and give a dressier appearance especially when going to an outdoor activity/function when one needs a bit of a "business casual" look.
