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.

Ripped seam instantly!I went up a size as other reviewers recommended and felt the fit was fine. First time wearing them, dressed for the beach. As I was moving around the house getting ready to leave, I heard the dreaded Velcro ripping noise every time I moved: bend, twist, lift or sit. Or so I thought. Bent down to put food in the cooler and my hubby started cracking up! Apparently, it wasn't just the Velcro, but the seams completely gave way and my butt was fully exposed! These were not tight feeling, just such cheap and poorly constructed garbage, they lasted 15 minutes! Glad it happened while I was still home. I would NOT recommend!

Size 16 fits wellI'm so happy this site carries board shorts for my size. They actually fit well. I am 5' 4" and they come to just above my knee. I never look great in swimwear, but I think these look stylish and make the best of a short size 16 body type. I plan to wear these with a swim top on our snorkeling excursions. They should dry fast enough to let me get back on the tour bus to return to the ship w/o changing clothes. (My Lands End suit stays damp for days. The have a secure pocket for my cruise card and tip money, so I can swim with my ID and not leave it unattended on the beach. I would double the use of these shorts by wearing them as summer board shorts, not just swim shorts.

Not a swim separateThese shorts are great for slipping OVER a swimsuit. However, the site lists them as a swim separate..this is not the case. In order to be a swimsuit separate bottom they should be lined. These are simply shorts. Fortunately I noticed another review that mentioned the lack of lining prior to purchase. Because I was looking for something to wear for Stand Up Paddleboard Pilates and felt that these shorts would work well I decided to get them anyway and simply also purchased a pair of black boyshort swim bottoms (an actual swimsuit separate) to go under them. Still a great short and would recommend purchasing them...if either only want shorts or you also buy something to go under them.

Womens beach shortsI bought these to go surfing in Waikaki, Hawaii but didn't realise at first it was a US company and ordered the size too big as US sizing is two sizes different from New Zealand. I took the shorts in with a seam and they stayed up and worked great. Also used for snorkelling in the ocean. I could have fitted a size 10 I think which is a 14 in New Zealand. A US 14 is like a New Zealand 18.

Nice ShortsThese shorts have great coverage if you are self conscious about your bottom half. They are cut for a woman's body so they don't look odd compared to men's board shorts I have tried. They seem a bit on the small side so if you are a plus sized girl, as I am, you would be best going a size up. I like the elastic in the back but I wish the drawstring ran through the entire waistband for a more personal fit. I don't care for the Velcro fly. The drawstring sticks to the Velcro. I have a pair from Land's End that has a zipper and I much prefer that. Overall good shorts especially for the price

Love these board shorts!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. I clicked on the "Feels Too Small" option in the "Fit" section because my actual size would have indeed been too small, but going up a step or two gives the best fit. The fit is very comfortable and the design is perfect 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!

great for beach excursionsI bought these for a cruise. I like board shorts with tankini tops for more coverage. These shorts were comfortable enough to wear as shorts for a sight seeing bus & walking tour and then walking 1 mile to the beach to swim and hang out. When walking around (both wet and dry) they did NOT bunch or ride up (which surpised me!) They dry quickly. I actually used the side pocket for my Carnival card & drivers license. These are very utilitarian and look nice. I'm so glad I have them. I plan to wear them kayaking as well as hanging out at the pool.

Owie ow ow!I bought these so I could feel comfortable and covered taking my kids to the water park & pool this summer. When I initially tried them on, they fit great. While dry, they're comfy to move around in, modest, and attractive. After about an hour in the pool with the kids, I noticed a burning sensation on my inner theighs. When I got out to check, there were large abrasions on the insides of my legs (about the size of a playing card on each leg). That was yesterday...still walking like a cowboy today. OUCH! I'll be keeping these dry from now on.
I am constantly looking for knee length board shorts and they are almost impossible to find in my size at a fair price. Swimsuits For All seems to have a stylish range in all sizes - now I can just get in and enjoy the water with my modesty intact. Thanks!
