  • This is a swimsuit bottom and does not include a top for a full set.  Shop separate tops to make a complete set.
  • Front poly/mesh lining
  • 3" inseam
  • Boy short swim bottom fits true to size
  • 82% Nylon / 18% Spandex
  • Hand wash.
  • Flat dry.
  • After every use, the garment must be hand washed. Harmful elements such as suntan lotions, salt, chlorine, and body perspiration can cause discoloration and spandex breakdown. Since laundry detergents are too harsh on the spandex and the color, use mild hand soap made without added moisturizers. Do not wring the swimsuit to remove excess water. Lay it flat on a towel and roll the towel up and squeeze gently. Remove it from the towel and lay it flat to dry. Do not hang it to dry as that will stretch out the fibers in the fabric. Avoid using washers and dryers as damage can occur due to agitation and excessive heat. It is also important to let your suit "rest" between uses. This allows the spandex to bounce back (called recovery) to its original size and maintain its fit longer. If you wear a suit without letting it recover, it will lose its shape and fit more quickly. It's recommended to let the suit rest for 24-36 hours between uses. Always remove excess moisture with a towel and lay flat to dry indoors or in the shade. Also note, direct sunlight will fade your suit. It is always a great idea to have more than one suit.

Shore Club strikes the balance between sexy and sweet, designed for women who want an everyday suit that sizzles. The line is full of fun-meets-fashionable tankinis, shortinis, skirtinis and swimdresses in vibrant, head-turning colors and patterns. Beneath all the flattering necklines and slimming cuts, however, is some seriously well-constructed swimwear: underwire or soft molded cups provide comfortable, sag-free chest support, while built-in, powernet tummy control panels whittle and smooth the waist.

Black Boy Short is rated 4.5741 out of 5 by 54.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied, these are flattering As can be seen in the photo, these do not hit "mid-thigh" as stated in the description. They hit me about one inch below the top of leg/bottom of butt, same as in photo. Initial try-on at home is very positive and my husband loves the way they look. Good coverage and I will be very comfortable enjoying water slides knowing that these are not creeping up. Will wear them on cruise next week so will see how they hold up. I am an 8 in pants and these are a 10 (smallest size offered) but they feel like perhaps a "9" (if there was such a size) so I think they run a bit small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good coverage, but not frumpy. I read the reviews that said they run a little big and so I ordered a 10. In pants, I wear an 8-10, but swimwear, I wear a 12. I am very happy with my purchase! I am 61, but not into total coverage, just something that looks nice and youngish, but covers without looking like I'm hiding from the world. I highly recommend these shorts. I have not tried them in water or washed yet, just opened and tried on. If these continue to please, I would order again! I hope to find a suitable tankini top, now. That's the real challenge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice fit! I bought these to go with some different tankini tops. After reading the reviews where some people said they were tight or see through, I ordered a size bigger than I thought I needed. I figured they were stretchy so they would just not be SO tight and I was right. They fit well and are not loose at all but aren't so tight around the thigh as to make it bulge below the leg of the shorts. Flattering too! I am 52 and wanted something I could be comfortable in to take my grandkids to the beach and this will definitely work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! I bought these to go with another swim top I had and am so glad I did! I was a little skeptical how flattering the boy shorts would be and how they'd feel, but they were very flattering. The absolute best part is being able to swim without getting the dreaded wedgie!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality, As Usual As with my other purchases from S4A, I found this purchase to be exactly what I was expecting. I haven't actually put it to the water test yet, but if it's quality is in line with my other tops and bottoms, I will be very happy. One thing I was disappointed in was that ordering a size 12 put me into the PLUS category. I know a 12 is getting up there, but it's my understanding that a 12 is relatively average for this day and age. I would say 14 is a better place to start. The previous comments may have excluded me from the $5 coupon promised, but that's OK. Just telling it like it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are very flattering! I love these! They provide enough coverage for that upper thigh area that tends to look like fat rolls, without looking frumpy! They look sporty and feel great. I'm going to use them for snorkeling in Mexico, since you don't have to constantly tug on them to keep them comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks good on/can be worn with any top Only worn twice so far but love it. I have a stocky figure (sz 22) and bottom was more modest but flattering than many other styles I've tried. AND it can be worn with your choice of tops as well as in other activities, not just swimming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Black boy shorts make you feel all that. These shorts feel like a million bucks. The fit is great and the design is comfortable and flattering.

Is it chlorine resistant?
A shopper on Mar 7, 2015
Best Answer: My swimsuits last about 6 to 8 hour-long hydrotherapy sessions in warm, heavily chlorinated water. They don't last as long if they're too stretched, so buy the right size.
