I love these shorts!!!! I bought a pair last Summer and after the first time I wore them, I went back to the store and bought 2 more pairs.
Being a stay at home mom, it's all about comfort for me and in the Summer, I live in shorts. Between running errands, cleaning house and activities with the kids, I am always on the go and need clothes that work with me. These Danskin Now shorts breathe and move with you. They have a loose fit and feel so they do not cut into you when you are sitting and they don't ride up on you when you are standing. They have 2 hook closures, a zipper and a drawstring waist so they can be worn loose or pulled in if you like your pants tighter. They are also great for those time we need a little extra breathing room. They are made of 68% cotton, 29% polyester and 3% spandex. They are totally wash and wear and come out of the dryer 98% wrinkle free. From the top of the waistband to the bottom hem they measure in at 13 1/2 inches so they fall mid thigh. My favorite part is that they have great pockets. There is on one each side that sits at thigh level and has a fold over flap that close with Velcro. There is also another smaller pocket that would hold a key or change that closes with a zipper.
I wore these on a recent trip to an amusement park and they were perfect. I had pockets to hold the items I needed like my ID a credit cards, they were light weight and comfortable and they dried quickly when I went on the water rides and got soaked. My husband even tells me I look cute in them and should go back and get a few more pairs so that says something on how they look too. These are great shorts at a great price.
Update On Mar 31, 2010: I really hope Walmart carries this style of Danskin Shorts again this year. They are still my favorites and I can not find any others close to them.
