This is a swimsuit bottom and does not include a top for a full set. Shop separate tops to make a complete set.
Loose fitting, full leg short
Full, built-in mesh panty
82% Nylon / 18% Spandex
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.

PerfectFound my first swim shorts about five years ago on another plus sized web site. I paid about $50 for them and immediately tried to purchase another pair, but so did everyone else! These shorts are just like the ones I paid so much for. So far I have bought 4 pair in blue or black with matching print tops. They are so much more comfortable, modest, and practical than skirts. I use a pool for rehab therapy five days a week and these shorts get used a lot. They rinse out and dry quickly. My only advice would be about size; If you are on the line between sizes, go down a size. These shorts are generously cut and can droop when they get wet.

Comfort begins in these shorts!These shorts are simple, comfortable, and look great with the Blouson Tankini top. Just enough "flare" to attractively cover bottom and portion of thighs, without being too long! I thought I would like the skirt bottoms, more, so I was skeptical about ordering these shorts, but they really do look great on me (at least that was the opinion of my daughter and husband)! I tried on several other short or skirt/skort styies in stores, and many of them were just "wrong!" A lot of the shorts were too long, causing an unattractive, "dumpy" look, but these shorts do the trick!!

Finally! A loose bottom that won't float up!I am 50 years old and 5'3". I have been looking long and hard for a bottom to wear with tankinis. I hate the way my current skirt floats up in the water. It is so hard to find something that isn't too "young and flouncy" or skin-hugging, bulge-showing tight isn't it? I just got my order today and the shorts fit great and look so nice! From the side they still look like a skirt, but from the front and back they look like shorts. I usually wear a size 16 in pants and jeans. I ordered both the size 14 and 16 in these swim shorts and the size 14 was perfect. The inside "underwear" part fits perfect and the outer shorts part is very loose. I do not carry weight in my outer hips or thighs so they are just a little roomier there than I need, but still look OK. I'm sending the size 16 back for another 14!

Good swim shortI bought these 2 mths ago & would recommend them for hiding imperfections & making you look good. They are very comfortable, over time they do get saggy in the water, but snap back to their shape when dry. I have a long torso so they fit excellent at the waist. I initially bought them w/ a tank, but am the Silver-boomer group and the tank was difficult to get off when wet, also w/my long torso & apple figure the tank wasn't as long on me as showed on the models (tank came down to just below my belly button) - SO! I am now using them w/a Longitude 1 pc and love it! Hides the imperfections of the fleshy upper leg & loose enough to hide the tummy! Inner lining keeps the tummy in w/o any pinching. Glad I read the reviews!! As I am an apple w/a smaller bottom, so went with a size smaller - Perfect fit!

Really like the shorts styleNeeded a new suit for vacation, but one pieces don't appeal to me. Ordered the shorts and a top. They work great together. Would order the shorts a size smaller than indicated they are loose in the waist but still provide coverage for casual swimming. If I go to a water park will need to get something with a closer fit. Overall, it's a great piece that makes me feel comfortable to be out by the pool.

Love them!I had previously purchased a pair of these swim shorts and loved them. However, when I purchased them again they were a bit too big. They felt a tad bit too long. Other than the lenght they were perfect for our weekend at the beach.

good for the price-I use 2x week for water aerobics -runs large and legs have a tendency to hang too low. -make sure to rinse well if swimming in chlorinated water.
I have bought these before. Lost some weight and needed to order a smaller size. I have a short torso, and they come up over my belly button. I don't particularly like that they come so high, but it's not a problem under a swim top.
DO these hold air and balloon out in the pool? I have a pair that bubble up whenever I go in the water. It's weird and embarrassing to always be squeezing the trapped air out of the shorts.

Best Answer:These shorts have been very comfortable and provided just the right amount of modesty for me. They didn't bubble out with air pockets like you described. I've had other suits do that before and it is frustrating.
Best Answer:Almost too stretchy. I purchased a size I thought would fit but they were too tight across the belly. I returned them for the next size up but when I got in the water with them they almost came off. Get the size you would normally wear, they may seem too small but won't fall off.
