Nylon Board Short is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering and Comfortable! I love these board shorts- they provide the casual coverage you want over a one piece. They hit at the right spot on the hips and the perfect length. These are probably my 12th purchase from SSFA, I have every combination of top and bottom- the quality is always good and the prices are amazing. I've referred several friends as well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Runs Way Small I read the reviews and ordered a size larger than I normally wear. Still too small. I didn't feel like putting the effort in to exchange, so I gave them to my sister. She is a size smaller than me, and they were almost too small for her too. Maybe +2 sizes up is the trick. I was really hoping to love these.

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 very comfortable very comfortable, looking forward to water activities this summer

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.

Picked for inseam length.
Angela G on Nov 21, 2016
Board shorts are too long, this 4.5 inseam might be the best of both worlds. Board shorts to mid thigh instead of the knee.

JANET D on Aug 16, 2016
A cute beach short that hopefully will work out ... the reviews on these are all over the place ... but the main thing seems to be that they run small.
Jan K on Aug 15, 2016
available in my size (plus size); velcro & drawstring closure for back up support of making sure they stay on even in waves; short length 4.5 to 5 inch inseam is ideal for free movement of body (bends & stretches)
