2 Pack Boys' Adaptive School Shorts is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Amazing idea, executed badly. When I first heard M&S was doing this range I was very excited. I waited nearly 6 weeks to get what I thought would be the right size but I ordered the size above to just to incase. The fit is the worst we’ve tried they have very wide and long legs. But the biggest issue is the elasticated back gives hardly any in fact less then an inch stretch which will make them hard to pull up independently or with support. My son normally wears age 12 pull up shorts (not school shorts) but your age 13-14 would not go up over his thighs. M&S please rethink your sizes and cut of the clothes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing fit I purchased ( online) age 3-4 shorts for a five year old as the long trousers in this size had been a good fit and had an adjustable waist elastic. However, the shorts had a larger waist size (with no adjustment) and are very long. I had to use one pair for the start of term. However I took the second pair back to the store to see if any of the other 3-4 shorts were smaller. In fact they were larger. These shorts would have been usable if there was a waist adjustment. In the end I purchased age 2-3. These are still very long but the waist is adjustable. Perhaps M&S should review their sizing if age 2-3 fits an average 5 year old 105cm tall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from School shorts I bought these shorts on-line for my young grandson because they were billed as 'easy dressing' and as such seemed perfect for an infant.Unfortunately, they were too large for this slightly-built child and had to be returned.Selecting from the range in-store it became evident that M&S stock many other styles of a 'pull-on' variety ( perhaps this fact could be made clearer in the on-line description?) The original shorts were exchanged for a double-pack of 'slim leg shorts' which are excellent. A lovely neat fit but also with sufficient ' room for manoeuvre'

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but could be better! I bought these for our older son who can find some clothing uncomfortable. These shorts have a soft waistband without buttons or internal gathering to irritate, no buttons/elastic to adjust to press against skin, labels positioned in such a way as to not cause sensory issues. However, usually shorts will do our older son over two academic years, as long as he doesn't grow to much, but on both pairs he's worn through some of the seams and I've had to repair them! Some people may also not like the fact these don't have an adjustable waist, but in my experience you can't have an adjustable waist that also suits those who don't like the feel of the buttons and extra elastic around the waistband.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from need an adjustable waist I saw these and thought brilliant!! Just what I needed for my 7 year old. Got them home and put them on him- they fell right down! A good idea in concept but need to have adjustable waists or do the smaller sizes in longer lengths.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Don’t see the advantage of the “easy dress” style. Bought these in age 3-4 for my just-turned 4-yr-old starting school. It wasn’t until I had named them that I realised that the waist isn’t adjustable and, of course, they just fall down on my little one. So I made a trip to M&S to buy some standard shorts only to find that these don’t have buttons or zips anyway (or certainly not in the smaller sizes) so the only difference I can see is that the easy dressing version doesn’t have the adjustable waist. My attemp to be organised and take advantage of the early summer 20% off school uniform has ended up costing me double! Lesson learnt.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The waist is not adjustable I completely agree with the other reviews. My son also has severe autism and has a pair of the easy dressing trousers, which are great. He is tall and slim, yet these shorts are much too big around the waist and useless. I truly believe these are not easy dressing at all - it’s counter productive to produce an item that will irritate a child with sensory issues in another way (ie with shorts that keep falling down). Not all children with autism need plus style clothes. Not impressed - what do I do now?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Large waist The waist size on these shorts is very big and had no adjuster. I had to go down a size for my son. But good quality, wash and wear well.
