These shorts are cut to fit around your hips, not your waist. So if you care about not revealing your butt crack when you bend over, they probably aren't for you. They are also pretty small - I wear a size 20 in jeans and shorts of all kinds, but these barely go on.
This is a great basic pair of bermuda shorts that fit well at the waist. Much better than the shorts that come up to below the waist, which keep sagging on me. I ended up buying the shorts in navy, beige, and black and have spent a happy summer in them.
