  • Board short does not include white swimsuit
  • Wear board short over your favorite swim bottom
  • Velcro fly with drawstring closure
  • 4.5" inseam
  • Flat front waistband with elastic back
  • Boardshort fits true to size
  • 100% Polyester
  • 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. Use mild hand soap made without added moisturizers. Do not wring the garment 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.

Nylon Board Short is rated 4.12 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Baggy in the rear and legs too big I bought these to cover my upper thighs. Everyone says these shorts run small, so I sized up one size. They are baggy in the rear, and the legs are huge! Yes, I bought boy shorts/bathing suit bottoms to wear underneath as recommended--but still feel like people can don't have to work hard to look up these shorts...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Should have listened to the reviews All the reviews said these ran WAY small - should have listened, purchased one size up - had to go up 2 sizes, then the waist fit and the rest of the shorts were WAY to big. I even tried the longer short and it was much worse. Conceptually, they are a great idea and very lightweight - really wanted these to work.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No Stretch I bought these last summer, they do look cute and dry fast but make sure you order at least 1-2 sizes bigger. I ordered a 22 and the fit is nice but the material has absolutely no stretch to it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from perfect for me! I am so happy to have something that fits. I find it very difficult to find something for size 12.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for plus size I just got these and love them. I am normally wear 18/20. I have a smaller waist, very large hips and thighs. I ordered a 22 just to be safe and glad I did. 22 fits good on my hips and thighs I have a little room on the waist but that's easy to stich the sides. these are perfect for a little extra coverage. The waist is elastic if I was thin I probably wouldn't go for elastic waist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit perfectly! The shorts fit perfectly and are stretchy which is convenient! Love them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very light material, tends to ride up the waist I got a few sizes up in this short, but the very light nylon material felt really unsubstantial. Also, the waistband was such that it wanted to really ride up my waist and give me a near wedgie. Not a fun thing to fuss with on the beach. I'm returning mine, but it's a shame since the shorts were a nice length!

I thought I would like a looser fit for pool classes - but I don't. I did use them for a trip to Jamaica to walk on the beach.

I already own a pair of these. I swim almost every day. These seem to really hold up in the chlorine water.
