  • 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
  • 3 1/4" inseam
  • Comfortable, covered elastic waistband
  • Full, built-in mesh panty
  • 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.

Our iconic Beach Belle swimsuits are all about classic style, smart coverage and ideal comfort. Whether you’re looking for traditional floral or attention-getting prints, the collection includes contemporary designs and colors that works regardless of shape and body type. Available in skirtinis, shortinis, swimdresses, sarong-front suits and side-tie tankinis—Beach Belle swimwear flatters all figures and is guaranteed to be a forever favorite.

Black Loose Short is rated 4.5158 out of 5 by 95.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Found 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good swim short I 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering to large hips & thighs. Fits very well, have large hips & thighs, looks gr8 and inner pants are comfortable & I don't have to worry if "shorts legs" float up in water. Best shortinni ever purchased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really like the shorts style Needed 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Competitive price, especially to buy anything remotely similar in New Zealand. Also, it is lovely and haven't seen anything comparable here.
Jenne C on Nov 17, 2015

recommended by a friend
Fiona N on Nov 7, 2015
Would have chosen the cargo but all reviews stated the seams rip easily and the fly doesn't lay flat as pictured. I've learned to listen to reviews, especially if they all say the same thing. These shorts received better reviews. We constantly dock our boat at restaurants to eat and I wanted a pair of shorts to throw on over my suits for a different look than my usual coverups.
Clarissa B on Nov 7, 2015

Linda D on Oct 27, 2015

evelyn B on Aug 27, 2014

Is there a built in tummy control brief?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2014
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.
A shopper on Sep 7, 2014
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.
what color is the built in mesh panty?
A shopper on Mar 9, 2015
Looking for regular fit, not these come in both regular and plus?
A shopper on Apr 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: sizing 18-32 is woman's anything below that would be standard sizing.

debbie l on Feb 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Mine did not BUT I think it would detract from the style.
do these shorts have pockets?
debbie l on Feb 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately these shorts do not have pockets
Are these shorts stretchy? I bought the board shorts and didn't like them.
A D on Jul 31, 2014
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.
does it have pull strings?
A shopper on Jul 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No pull strings just elastic all around. Too long especially when wet.
does this include a drawstring?
A shopper on Sep 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No. Elastic waist.

A shopper on Aug 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If you have larger hips an 18.
