I love these shorts. I have them in gray and tan and the Bermuda's in navy--ALL in a size 2. I'm 5'5" and 110 pounds. The fabric gives and always looks nice. I wear them hiking as well as out and about in town. The gray and navy fit perfectly; the tan are a bit big around the waist and feel best with a belt. The new 7" navy I just received are bit small. Enough so that I will have to return them. I plan to exchange them at the store so I can try them on and know the fit will be right. Disappointing since the store is 2 hours away.

I love these shorts. I bought one pair of the Bermuda length then ordered another in a different color. They are incredible comfortable due to the bit os stretch and look very nice too. They are very flattering and the fabric is nice, as is the workmanship. My hips are very small in relation to my waist, so I don't think this style would fit on women with bigger hips - they would probably gap at the waist.
Love these shorts
I have a pair of these shorts that I bought 3 years ago and just love, so I wanted to get another pair in a different color. It's winter, so I just tried them on briefly but they seem to fit the same as my old ones so they should be great. I'm short and stocky, so on me these shorts hit right at the knee. I usually wear a size 12 or 14 pant and find the size 14 fits me better (I don't like tight shorts, especially when it's hot outside!) These are so cool and comfortable so I always reach for them first and am always disappointed if they are already in the wash. I also own several pairs of Horizon pants and love them all.
Great Shorts - Sizing Off
I wear to the same size in all EB clothes and LOVE that consistency ... these shorts were waaay too small in that size. When I took them back to the store, I was told that this color (gray) in this short in consistently small by one size. Apparently all the other colors fits true to size. I changed for a size up, and they fit perfectly! I LOVE the shorts. Material is great, shorts are comfortable, and they feel awesome and look good.
Get your sizing straight, Eddie Bauer!
I already owned a pair of these in an 8 and wanted another color. The 8 arrived and was horribly tight. I wanted them for a trip I was going on, so I ordered another pair and wasted my money on rush shipping so they would arrive in time for my trip. The 10 arrived on time but was just as tight fitting as the 8 had been. I returned these, of course, but wasted my money on the shipping on the original pair and even more money on the second pair. This is not the first time EB clothes have been inconsistent in their sizing and it is infuriating. If you are not going to fix this problem, STOP CHARGING FOR SHIPPING. Now that you've closed all your local stores, it also costs to complete returns. NOT A GOOD OR SUSTAINABLE business model.
Wanted to love but...
I have had several pairs of these shorts - all black, and still wear them. I was excited to get them in navy and could hardly wait to try them on. The fit is AWFUL! The shorts were great in the back - went up to my waist and covered well. The front waist hit my bikini area. They should be sized to fit a real woman - I think the zipper was all of 3 inches long and that was in Tall sizing. They were mailed back last week.

Ruined a great thing!
Eddie Bauer, what are you doing?! You took a perfectly wonderful short and made it not so wonderful! What wa once a perfectly fitting size 10 is now designed so that I can barely get them on! PLEASE go back to the previous fit! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
