Women's East Ridge™ Short - Plus Size is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleased I absolutely love these shorts I have two colors and plan to order the third. The fabric is so lite weight , they dry quickly. We travel a lot. They roll up to almost nothing and lite weight. The side pockets could be a little longer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These were just ok Purchased these for hiking. Active clothes made by manufacturers like Columbia always run small - I sized up but they were still snug and I like to wear my clothes a little loose. An 18w should have had an elastic waist but it didn't. Not sure why the manufacturers only think skinny women hike!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts I love these shorts. They're the only shorts I ever wear. Order new ones every summer. Length is great and the cargo pockets are big enough for my cell phone, etc. The zippered side pockets are great to keep keys, etc. safe and secure. Can't say enough wonderful remarks about these shorts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Order at least two sizes bigger Arrived today, going back tomorrow. Saying that they run small is an understatement. Ordered them for travel, if they fit, they would have been great. Really, these should have been re-sized.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very small fit While I am accustomed to Columbia clothes running small these were exceptionally off & I would recommend ordering 2-3 sizes up from norm

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Hiking Shorts Shorts run a little tight through the seat area so you should order a size larger than what you usually wear. Also the side pockets are zippered which is good for securing items.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not run true to size I ordered a larger size, thinking they would fit after reading the reviews- it did not fit. I would need to order 2 sizes larger than I normally wear and alter them. I returned this item.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great shorts I usually wear an 18 but went up to a 20 due to the review of running small. They are still a bit tight but wearable

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Trail shorts Excellent t quality. Comfortable fit. Runs quite small. But I think that hiking shorts across brands run small. I tried another brand before I purchased Columbia's brand. And I knew to order larger. In spite of being women's cut and two sizes larger, they are still a bit tight. Would recommend with a caveat to order larger than needed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from order size larger Kind of upset because I went to the Columbia store so I could try on pants so I would have an idea of what size I needed if I ordered on line. Very limited offerings for plus sizes in the store. Tried on pants and the 18 W fit in store, but the shorts (which were not carried in store) do not fit well. They are tight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great summer/travel shorts Just got these a few days ago, and really like them a lot. They fit very true to size, comfortable, plenty of pockets. I am a shorter person, but the longer length is perfect. Would definitely buy again, but would like them in black if possible.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poorly shaped I wanted to like these, but they really just look like silly swimming trunks... I like the fabric, but they are not at all tapered so the bottom of the short is very blocky with excess fabric. Returned immediately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and look great I love these shorts, but the sizing is messed up. I initially bought the 16W and when I tried them on they were a tad snug. Since nylon doesn't normally stretch much, I figured the 18W would be nearly dead on. The 18W were a perfect fit, until a few hours passed. The shorts had stretched out so much that they were falling off of me. I will be calling customer service to see about exchanging them for a 16W. I hope they will, I've worn them and no longer have the tags. :(

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unusual Fit I read the other reviews and understood that this pant runs small. I ordered up a size but that did not help. The fit is unusual in that it is quite "square" and does not conform to the curves of a woman's body. The size larger was still tight through the upper thigh and gapped out at the waist. I think that this pant would fit someone with a straight up and down shape (traditionally called a "boy" cut). At any rate I think this is a pant to be tried on in a store. Ordering on line will continue to be a problem. Sorry...I wanted to love them!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Order a size up. These run small, order a size up. The material is thin but nice. The legs are too wide which I do not like. I returned these.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for me The colors, construction and features are all great but these shorts don't taper like the picture shows. If they did i would have kept them. I don't care for the flare at the knee. Cypress is a great color in person.
