  • Wear board short over your favorite swim bottom
  • Board short does not include white swimsuit
  • Single functional cargo flap pocket
  • Velcro fly with drawstring closure
  • 9" 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.

Black Long Board Short is rated 4.2842 out of 5 by 95.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Womens beach shorts I 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a swim separate These 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I needed These will be great to wear from the hotel to the beach and in the water. It's way too uncomfortable not to wear shorts with a suit at my size and all the others I've found are too short , these are a good length. I've worn regular shorts before but then I have to take them off before going in the water since they aren't meant for that, these I can swim with them on with no worries. I always envied that men had board shorts available while women had to deal with tiny suits, now they finally have board shorts for us and in plus size!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My first time with Board Shorts I wear an 18w normally on the bottom and I went with other peoples opinions on these longer board shorts and went one size up to a 20. I am glad I did. 18s would of not fit me. I could of done a 22. If I gain 5 lbs I'm done for. I was worried the legs would of been to big around but they would of been fine I suggest going 2 up. they are nice though. No lining so they may stick in water but I will give them a try. They are nicer for blocking sun due to the length,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Shorts These 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for beach excursions I 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Length! Order true to size! I followed previous recommendations to order a size bigger and now I am exchanging them for my size. They are a great length - I am 5'7'' and they fit a few inches above my knee. Much more flattering than wearing mens board shorts that are way too long and womens board shorts that are way too short! The legs are wide, which is good because thats what I am trying to cover.

Can these be worn by themselves or do they need bottoms under?
Lacey G on Jul 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: There is no liner, by they are long enough that they could be worn alone. I'd say it would be a matter of whether or not they feel comfortable with nothing underneath.
Do these stretch after you're in the water?
A shopper on Jul 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The shorts don't stretch and don't fly up in the water. I don't even know I have them on. I usually wear a 16 but the 18's fit perfect.

Barbm on Feb 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No there is no panty inside. I wish there was. I wear a pair underneath and it works really well for a swimsuit bottom. Love them. It's nice to have something longer. I'm an amputee and like that it covers up my scar better than the typical suit bottom. Very comfy.
