Thank you for your feedback.
The quality and fit were as expected and they work great for every day practice shorts.
They were a little thinner that I hoped for, but they work well and fit my son great.
These fit as expected and were made nicely.

    It would be great if they could post the numerical size equivalents to S, M, L. I thought M would be the right size for my 5 year old who wears size 7 pants, but the M is like a tent! My guess is that M will fit sizes 8-10.

    shorts are soft, light weight and perfect for warm summers. Good shorts, low price. My only issue is that the size chart provided led me to buy and subsequently exchange the wrong size. Please use this one off the Soffe website instead. [...]

    By the photo, these look like the normal "mesh" sport type of shorts, right? I ordered the Medium, which SHOULD be a size 10/12 according to the size chart. These arrived, sealed in a bag inside the package. Once I opened it and saw the item, it LOOKED tiny! Well, I could not return/exchange since now it was an open package. I'd also just bought a few pairs of MED (10/12) shorts similar to these at the largest chain retailer for $2 less per pair, held these up next to them and yes, these seem to be more like size 8, a LOT smaller, not just a fraction, and I did order from the "Big Boys" sizes (preteens to teen sizes, which is likely why the other customer commented that she'd bought them for her 5 yr old and they looked like a tent). Upon holding them up to compare the sizes, I noticed that even WITH the "lining", these were completely see-through. I mean COMPLETELY see through. I held the other shorts up I'd bought somewhere else thinking that maybe it was just the nature of these shorts, but no, they weren't see through at all, even though they seemed to have the same type of mesh lining.

    I wrote that the fit was smaller than expected, but when I read reviews that said thus, I ordered what I thought would work based on running small. My 6 year old wears size 5 normally, I ordered an XS, and it fit fine. I felt for the price, these are perfect.
    I can agree than if you hold the shorts up to the light, you can see light through them, however, I was not able to see legs or underwear while my child was wearing them. The material is lightweight and breathable. The waistband elastic is stretchy enough to hold up to a kid running around playing sports. I like the lack of a visible logo for young team sports, as well. There are no pockets, but I'd prefer not to have them for my kiddo to put toy cars into and forget about (or worse, remember and play with instead of paying attention to the coach) while out on the ball field.
    Overall good product for our intended use.

    Size: LargeSpecial Size Type: Big BoysColor: Black Verified Purchase
    My daughter needed knee length, black shorts for gym, so I ordered a pair of these in medium and in large. First off, believe it when people say they are see through. I pulled them out of the bag and was surprised to see my blue wall right through them! The white drawstring was hanging inside the shorts, and it, too, was very clearly seen through the shorts. Yes, the shorts are lined, but heck if it does a lot of good.

    My daughter only tried on the Large, as it fit. She's about 4'7", I'd guess and 85 lbs. She just started wearing a size 12 in girl's jeans. She has a bit of a gut, and these shorts fit comfortably going across her waist or pulled down on her hips. As far as length, they came down to her kneecaps. The shorts feel like those cheap drawstring bags you get at conventions or summer camp, but they're only for her to wear to gym. I really wish these shorts weren't see through. I do not think she'll be able to wear them for gym unless I can figure out a way to hide her panties while wearing them.

    Size: X-LargeSpecial Size Type: Big BoysColor: Maroon Verified Purchase
    I'm a 5'1" guy (Too heavy for my height) and get many big boys clothes as some fit better. I don't like the crotch just above my knees. These fit great and are very comfortable. As summer sleep or lounge shorts, these are great and very breathable. While the material is thin, I do not experience the "see thru" effect that others have complained about. If there were no lining, yes, these would be a bit embarrassing. I got maroon, maybe it's color dependent. Plan on getting more in different colors and will let you know.

    I ordered several pairs of these shorts for my 13 year old. He wears them almost everyday. They fit him perfectly around his small waist and hang down to his knees which seems to be a requirement of his. They are thin but not see-through.

    We love these shorts. I buy these for my son AND daughter. For the price, you can't beat them. The size is spot on, the color is identical to what you see in the picture, the fit is very comfy. No issues or complaints.
