Women's Sandy River™ Color Blocked Short - Plus Size is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for these hot summer days. Recently retired and am moving from a work clothes to “retirement” clothes wardrobe. These shorts are comfortable, wash well and the inseam length is modest for a “mature” woman. Will buy again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Big This short runs a lot bigger than the same sized Sandy River Cargo short. Like it was inches bigger in the waist. Those other shorts were great and had these been true to size, they would have been great too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Get one size down from original Sandy River Shorts I am a Sandy River shorts addict. (The cargo type with belt do not work for me. I have a tummy and stick legs) I can’t remember not wearing them almost daily (I have many, many pairs). They have seen me from a small up to a 2x back to a large... etc. I literally tear off work clothes and sigh with relief to wear these shorts. Year round. I have probably 17 pairs in various sizes, colors, and now color block. COLOR BLOCK: cute, but watch sizing! ANYHOW, I bought these color blocked shorts about a year ago. (2017) YIKES the sizing! At the time I was wearing a 1x. The corresponding color block slid right off me. I knew they were big and tied them tight. Perhaps they would shrink! To my dismay after washing on hot (big no no), I had to do the bow legged waddle to keep them somewhat up after a walk. My 85 pound dog made the situation much much worse. *The size issue may only apply to plus size*. I have seen many reviews stating “true to size”. - If I can do more research and can edit the review, I will. - Now I am in between 1x and 2x, the color block shorts are still big. I would go down a size if you are an Apple. Perhaps two if you are fortunate to have a waist. (Pear or hourglass) Still great product! I have not purchased them in “normal” sizing yet. Inseam changes! ———————————- Note - original Sandy River standard sizes has a 5” inseam. Standard sizes color block style are 4”. All plus sizes for both have a 6” inseam. (Snoopy happy dance) Only at a 4 Star for sizing. P.S. Prior to submitting the review, there is a little button to click to win a gift card. Had no idea until just now. So my review was fully written prior to me clicking said button. Cheers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOMEN'S SANDY RIVER™ COLOR BLOCKED SHORT - PLUS SIZE These shorts are comfortable for sports activities as well as normal wear. The material wicks moisture well and dries quickly. After laundry the color remained unchanged.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big boyish and good The 1x in these shorts sorta hangs off and REALLY needs the drawstring me but for performance gear I am OK w/ the boy short look/fit. The 1x in the sandy river shorts is almost too tight for me so the fit frustrates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable Love these shorts, so much so I ordered 4 more pair. Ordered my normal size and they all fit perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice but too big the Sandy River short fit well in this size, but both the Sandy River print and block ran large. too bad because this was a very nice short
Date published: 2017-08-06
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wish they fit better I was hoping to like these shorts but the waist is just too big and won't cinch up enough with the drawstring. I ordered a 2X and the waist is a good 44 inches. I like the weight and comfort of the fabric but the shorts always feel like they are going to fall off.
