Rated 5 out of 5 by from MY GO TO SHORTS! I love these shorts. I live in southern Florida so most of my days are spent in high temperatures, humidity and often on the water. I wasn’t sure what size to get, knowing that Columbia is normally generous with their sizing I read the reviews which helped me order one size up. The material is very light weight and breathable. The length 4” is perfect. I am a larger woman who normallys wears a 14/16 but ordered a 16W on advice of other reviewers. They fit with a little room to spare:) I love these!! In fact I logged in immediately after reviewing them and ordered three more pairs!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts I have not really worn shorts in years - I stick mostly with skorts or dresses, but these shorts and another pair of PFG shorts I bought have changed my mind. Fit great, feel great. Plan to wear them boating and hanging out at the bay. I always expect great quality from Columbia and these don't disappoint. I got the 6 inch length, which still hit mid thigh.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from WOMEN'S PFG SOLAR FADE™ SHORT - PLUS SIZE These shorts run just a little smaller than advertised. The material pattern is very attractive but after laundry the color had faded considerably.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Size matters I normally 18/20. I had to go up to a size 24. There is no give to them and so the leg hole is super tight when you sit down, Love the cotton feel and design

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Was so excited I purchased the short and the feel of them was amazing. However, could not even get them buttoned. I'm going to return them and try another pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love PFG Solar Fade Love how these shorts are not so long, and very lightweight and cool for hot days! Fits a little small but still was able to order normal size. Wish there were more colors and that they didn't sell out so quickly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the ideal short This product doesn't fit at all. It is cut all wrong for a person who is curvy. It seems like they are made for an ectomorph only cut in a larger size. I am not sure about many of the plus size clothes you have and you the product design team comes up with their cut and function. It would be great if these shorts were quite a bit longer too. I looked at the sizing guide and in reality they should be about a size too big, however when received they are seeming to run about 2 sizes too small.
