  • 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST BOARDSHORT EVER!! Just received these and I*LUV*LUV*LUV*THEM!!!! Fit like a dream, are super cute, and fashionable. I'm 60 yrs. young, 5ft. 4in. and 150 lbs. I consider myself to be reasonably fit,somewhat muscular. I ordered the 14 and they are perfect. I ordered two pair, since they were on sale, and I'm glad I did. I have many tankini tops that these will look great with. I just wish MORE COLORS!! If you are on the fence, jump off and get these. You won't be sorry!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Water Activities Purchased this for a recent trip to climb the Falls in Jamacia - provided great coverage and were very comfortable. I did follow suggestions from other reviewers and ordered up two sizes so they would fit a little lower on the waist and they did just that. They were a little baggy in the legs but since I am a hippy chick, I was ok with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affordable and attractive! I followed the advice of reviewers, to purchase a couple of sizes bigger, and I'm glad I did. I'm a size 8 but purchased a 12, and although it's a teeny bit big, I am glad I didn't go any smaller. Although I clicked the "feels too small" option in the "Fit" section, the larger size I bought is perfect. The fit is very comfortable and the design is excellent for camouflaging my thighs. They move well and are comfortable for sitting or moving around. I love them, and you can't beat the price!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute but not true to size Bought my size but board shorts were way to small. Customer service rep suggested 2 sizes larger so i exchanged.. Fine if standing but when you sit down there is no give. Description doesn't mention velcro closure, which opens up when you sit down. Lacing helps but isn't completely sufficient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOOK NO FURTHER!!! I ordered these because they were on sale, and I needed a pair of board shorts for an upcoming vacation. I wasn't totally sure I would like them, but new that swimsuitesforall is great with returns, and I read another reviewers rave. She was spot on. I was pleasantly surprised to find the elastic waist in the back. I hadn't noticed it in the pictures. They are also ultra lightweight and not stiff at all like you find in other board shorts. You can't go wrong with these. My mom and I both purchased a pair and both are different shapes. They fit us both nicely. Comfy, yet stylish. Not too short, but short enough if you wear in the water you don't feel like they'll drag you down. (They also have a little Velcro in the front under the tie. It can catch on your suit, so just be careful there.) You can't go wrong with these! I'm back for another pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good just is what it says it is I'm 5'3 and the shorts are perfect length! As most plus size are for the tall. Nice lightweight you don't even notice they are there. Also the inner leg side seams are nice and smoothed flatten out so I don't get skin burn when I"m swimming or walking and my thighs brush together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So cute! I agree,order up 2 sizes larger 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!

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.
