Women's Piped Athletic Shorts
Are these men's or ladies?
When I first opened the package, I thought you accidently send me a pair of men's shorts. I have ordered lands End ladies active wear shorts before and loved them. I gasped when I held them up. The size Medium is huge. The item number was correct. Get rid of this item immediately. It makes me lose faith in Lands End sizing. Too bad I will be stuck with the return charge.

My daughter LOVES these shorts!
I can't believe all the bad reviews on these shorts. My daughter is sixth grade, 5'4" and she LOVES THESE shorts. She has all the colors now and wishing Lands End would make them in additional colors. They are long enough to wear to school without being sent home for wearing short-shorts, but not so long that they look like those silly basketball shorts. Her school has P.E. everyday, but no locker room until the kids are in seventh grade, so these truly are the perfect solution for her. She says they are incredibly comfortable. I'm glad Land's End also makes them in girls' sizes, because her little sister loves them now too.

A little hemming for best shorts ever.
As others noted, these shorts are long and clunky as is; I took them to a seamstress and had them hemmed. The bottom stripe was cut off and hemmed to 4 inch inseam. Now they are attractive and indestructable. I'm buying a smaller set as I lose weight. I love them.

I am 5'6" and normally wear Lands' End size 10 or medium. I ordered medium in these shorts, and they look and feel like bloomers - definitely too puffy to be flattering. I'd love to return them, but I already wore them once to see if I'd change my mind. I ended up disliking them more as the day went along. It's too bad, because the fabric is typical Lands' End - very nice and high-quality.

What Happened Lands End????
I've bought many items including shorts from Lands End over the years. These, by far, have the worst fit ever. I don't think it's the sizing, but it's the the way they are cut. The shorts are very bulky, heavy, puffy looking. I wish they'd come back with some of the sport shorts from the past!!!!

I am sure Land's End gave me a very good description of these shorts - complete with inseam length, etc. My complete lack of attention to detail, however, prohibited me from reading it. I take responsibility. :) They are HUGE! I ordered a large - I normally wear a 10 in LE garments....but like my sport shorts roomy. The first issue came when I opened the package - and they had sent me an XL. As I unfurled them - I realized I could wrap them around me twice! Then I held them up to me. I admit, I am on the shorter side of things (5'4") - but these shorts came down to my knees! Being in my 40s, I do like my shorts to cover more than my rump. But these take modesty to a whole new level. They seem very well made - but completely unwearable for me. If you do like longer casual shorts, order down.
