I usually wear a size 14 but got these in a 16 and am happy I did. One size up makes these look really trendy, totally comfy, a bit above knee length for walking around a resort or resort town. These are part of my first purchase from S4A and I am very happy with them. Will wear them this month on vacation and can see throwing them on over the tankini top and bike shorts and hanging around all day in them. Probably will buy another pair in another color.

I purchased these shorts for my mother and she was ecstatic about the ability to cover her and still allow her to wade comfortably in the water. She has lost weight and didn't want loose skin to show. She really liked the design on the side.

3.0 Sizing is terrible - order 2 sizes up!

PROS

  • Dries Quickly
  • Lightweight

CONS

  • Poor Fit

BEST USES

  • Pool
  • At The Beach
  • Casual Swimming
  • Surfing

I had to order 2 sizes up from my normal size. The velcro closure is annoying especially when you bend or sit and hear that ripping noise! A zip would have made them great. I've worn them about 4 times since I purchased them and they wear great, very comfy and they dry fast. They will do until I can find a pair with a zip closure and better sizing.

  • Fit:
  • Feels too small

3.0 Buy Larger and Skip the Pain.

PROS

CONS

BEST USES

The screen print design on the side stuck to itself. I don't imagine it will last very long. These shorts worked well for me until I came out of the water. Having resorted to men's board shorts for so long, I appreciated the extra room for my hips and butt w/ the gathered rear waist. However, once I got out of the water, the inside seam of these shorts rubbed my inner thigh raw nearly instantly. We left the beach as soon as I got out of the ocean so I'm amazed how quickly the seams dug into my skin. A week later, I still have a nasty wound. I carry a lot of weight in my thighs and I wish shorts might be made for people like me in mind (looser leg circumference or covered seams, perhaps). I like these shorts in theory and maybe a higher size wouldn't have hurt me but I'm afraid to wear them again until I lose weight - which pretty much puts me back where I started before I even bought these shorts. If we are talking body types, I'd say these shorts work best for apples and not pears. I'd recommend these if you buy larger than your usual size and/or you don't go into the water.
