5.0 So cute! I agree,order up 2 sizes larger

PROS

  • Lightweight

CONS

BEST USES

  • Surface Snorkeling

I listened to other reviewers and ordered a size larger with the intent that these shorts would rest a little lower and around my hips and not at the waist. Like they said, Go up 2 sizes! I only went up one size and they are riding up just a little. I'm keeping them because the 10 pounds weight loss I'll have before Kauai will make them perfect. The cut is meant to sit around the hips and if you buy them 2 sizes larger you'll love them. I also bought one pair of the longer shorts, but in my usual size and they fit perfect- but a little baggier than I like. I'll use the shorter shorts for surface snorkeling over my Badgley Mischka Draped Swimsuit,(purchased here and much loved!) and the longer shorts for some beach hiking. I'm seriously thinking about getting another pair of these little shorts because they are such great board shorts. Thrilled to see board shorts made for females!

4.0 IF you like them longer-yes

PROS

  • Lightweight

CONS

BEST USES

  • At The Beach

I purchased this longer short and one pair of the shorter board shorts. I like these for casual beach strolling, and the shorter ones for surface snorkeling worn over the Badgley Mischka draped one-piece suit(purchased here with no skirt). It's a great look. Longer shorts are true to size, yet looser than I would like around the hips and legs. Shorter shorts- must order 2 sizes up! Then you'll love them, and their modern style- rests at hips.

3.0 this is not a "swimsuit"

PROS

  • Lightweight
  • Dries Quickly

CONS

  • Doesn't Have Swimsuit

BEST USES

surprised that it was just shorts and not a swuimsuit - i guess that is what board shorts means. Only get these if your plan is to wear over existing swimsuit. not true to size - get 2 sizes larger other than that i can't say because i haven't worn them yet
