  • This is a swimsuit bottom and does not include a top for a full set.  Shop separate tops to make a complete set.
  • Aquabelle's exclusive nylon fabric is made with Xtra Life Lycra spandex which resist chlorine 5-10 times longer than ordinary suits. Chlorine resistant & colorfast, retains fit, shape and looks new longer.
  • Front poly/mesh lining
  • 2 1/4" inseam
  • Boy short swim bottom fits true to size
  • 82% Nylon / 18% Xtra Life Lycra 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.

Aquabelle is our revolutionary chlorine resistant swimwear collection available in sizes 8 to 26. Both our Xtra Life Lycra fabric or exclusive Poly/Spandex fabric blend swimsuits are constructed to endure repeated chlorine exposure and will still look brand new, swim after swim! All Aquabelle swimsuits are designed to resist chlorine longer than ordinary swimwear, and they won’t weigh you down in the water. Our sporty-chic one piece suits are created with tummy-control Power Mesh lining to keep your midsection feeling firm and smooth. Lightweight molded wire-free cups shape without sacrificing comfort for a secure fit. Dive in!

Xtra Life Lycra Black Boy Short is rated 4.3906 out of 5 by 64.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Only lined in front It does say in the description, front lining, but it makes the back feel like there is not enough material. I wanted a sturdy boy short and I don't feel like this does the job. I am disappointed because I really like the top I bought to wear with them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for those bulging thighs! I'm really pleased with the fit of these bottoms. The boy leg isn't so tight that I look poured into them. I'm typically a size 8 but got a 10 because I wanted the relaxed comfort. I got it and they look great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a comfortable swim short I bought this swimshort because I take an aerobics class before water aerobics and wanted something I could wear under longer capris in the winter. This fits the bill and I still feel covered in the pool. I usually wear swim shorts for both activities when it is not cold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit glad I've found swimsuits for all now I can mix & match my swimmers

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Back seam This short has a seam running up the back which is uncomfortable. The front seam is partly protected. I wish the seams were on the sides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these bottoms! This is the second pair I have ordered. I ordered one size up...fit perfect! Love the selection on this site!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just shorts.... I was expecting inner pantie webbing, but it's just the shorts! Not very comfortable and rides up your leg.
Date published: 2015-08-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice looking! Just a little larger than I hoped. They stretch well so I think I will order one size smaller. Flattering fit!

how long are they in inches?
A shopper on Apr 28, 2014
what is the inseam length?
A shopper on Aug 20, 2014
What size should I buy if I have a natural waist of 37" and hip 42"?
esther on Sep 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Due to your measurements, I would recommend a size 16 for you.

This item has plenty of stretch, so i believe this size would be the most comfortable for you.
is there an attached panty?
Robin K on Jul 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Nope, just the shorts. And these only lasted one summer for me before some of the stitching started to come undone, and I would say they run a bit large also, mine were a bit baggy. :(
does it have a drawstring at the waist?
A shopper on Feb 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No they do not have a drawstring but they fit nicely I dont think you will need a drawstring.
should I wear anything under?
A shopper on Jul 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I've been wearing the Xtra Life® Lycra® Aquabelle Black Extra Life Lycra Plus Size Boy Short in a water aerobics class 3 times a week since Jan 2014, and never needed to wear underwear under the shorts. They fit snugly, but not too tight, and there is no gap in the legs of the shorts. In fact they fit like bike shorts.and give me the extra coverage I like, but are still comfortable enough when performing jumping jacks, crunches, and high knee exercises. I love my boy shorts!
Is there an attached panty?
A shopper on Jan 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No panty but the material is thick enough that you won't miss it.
Do they have full rear coverage? I don't mind shorts, but I want to be able to wear them without being concerned that they are going to ride up and show something.
Cana K on Jun 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: no they don't ride up and they are very comfortable I love them
how long are they? what is the inseam?
A shopper on Feb 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: These have about a 2-3 inch inseam. When i had to replace them, I opted for a longer bike-short style. If you are wearing them alot, like me(4-5 days/week), get at least 2 pair! Do NOT put any of these into a bathing suit dryer! It will tear the spandex apart, & wear them out in no time.
Does it have an inner panty liner?
Willima B on Aug 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No these bottoms do not have n inner panty liner. I do like them and would recommend them.
Doe this have a velcro closure in the front?
Bobbie P on Jul 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No Velcro closure.
how long is the leg of the bike shorts?
grace b on Dec 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I can't tell you how long the legs of the bike shorts are, they were so tight that I couldn't even get them on even in my normal size and a size larger. But I bought boy shorts and loose shorts 2 sizes smaller and they fit great so it must be the design of the bike shorts.
How long are boy shorts?
A shopper on Dec 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: They go to the very top of your thigh. They fit nice with the longer tops.
Does this sit at waist?
A shopper on Nov 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It will depend on sizing and measurements of your waist. Be sure to go by the measurement chart for this item for better sizing.
Do you carry a size 6 in Lycra black boy shorts?
I have a small bottom, big top
Sherri F on Jun 28, 2015

Sorry, we cureently do not have any white bottoms.
