I just love these shorts. I generally wear between a size 2 and 4. Columbia products usually run big on me, so I went with the 2 and they fit perfect. I love that they sit on my hips and are not too baggy. Color is bright.

I haven't worn these shorts yet, but I ordered the size 10 and they fit well. I am usually a 10. And they are long enuff- I am thinking for paddling and canoeing. My guess is they will dry fast and the UPF is a plus. Sure beats hanging out, literally, in a swimsuit bottom. Nice fabric and color in the green-very cool looking!

I wanted something with a longer inseam to wear when snorkeling, this pair of shorts is perfect! My other Columbia products I usually order up a size so I usually wear a size 8 but I ordered the size 10 and I am happy that I did.

These are low cut like some reviews have mentioned. However I'm not one for low cut bikini type styles, and these satisfy my taste. They don't feel at all like they'll slip down too far in the back when I squat down, or fall off for that matter. However there isn't much ability to tighten or loosen the waist since the laces don't encircle the whole waist; they're just up front like in the photo. There is also a line of Velcro beneath the laces that really only fits one circumference. For me they're almost perfect, though the waist could be slightly smaller. Overall though I'm very happy with the fit. For a size reference I have a 27" waist and 35" hips. I ordered size 2. One thing the picture doesn't quite capture is how bright (at least in the orange color) these shorts are. There almost iridescent at first glance. You'll be easy to spot while wearing these! These beach shorts were a great deal for the high quality, and I'm looking forward to wearing them on my up coming vacation.
