Women's Cool Coast™ II Short is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Women's shorts Shorts run a little small. Very short length. Would be nice if these could come in different lengths.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for my body I was bummed when I tried them on and they didn't for right. Maybe my torsos too long but they just don't have enough room top to bottom and they look odd wearing them low on my waist. Cute color and soft material though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these These shorts are true to size. I love them because they are so comfortable. The only downfall is no pocket for phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute beachy shorts in fun prints! I was looking for some cute, easy shorts to be able to go to the beach in, kayak, etc. and be able to get a little wet. The fabric seems like it will dry quickly. I ordered an XS at first, but it was way too small. Got a S and it's a perfect fit! (5'4", 118-122) I'd say these run a little small, so err on the larger size that you tend to fit. I got two pairs and paired them with the tidal hoodie for extra sun protection. So cute!
