The waist is as big as the hips. Relaxed fit seems to mean increase the waist - fine if the cut is meant to sit just below the waist but this cut is just above the waist and does not taper in. Might work for someone pear shaped but does not work for anyone who has a waist that is the same size or slightly smaller than your hips.
I have this exact same Lee Relaxed Fit Bermuda Short in Alloy (Gray) and decided to purchase the dark denim wash Lagoon. When I received it, I noticed it looked rather big. When I compared the gray to the denim one, the waist was at least an inch bigger on the dark denim one, both being a size 8. Returned for obvious reasons.
Denim material doesn't hold shape. I put them on fit ok after wearing a while I could pull them down without unbuttoning. Had to put a belt on. Disappointed I have had other Lee brand clothing didn't have this problem. The price was a bit high for material to get so baggy.
These shorts are a nice fabric. A light denim. They dont wrinkle after washing or wearing them all day. That is the good part. The bad part is that the waist is the same size as the hips, so they gap. A lot. I bought a 16. I will have them fixed.
These shorts would have been just fine except the back seemed lower than the front. They were not high waisted and the back of the waist stuck out when you sit down because of the way the back sits on the waist. I am returning them.
