how long are they in inches?
A shopper on Apr 28, 2014
what is the inseam length?
A shopper on Aug 20, 2014
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. :(
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.
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.
I just bought these boy shorts but have a question. They are a tiny bit loose at the leg. Should these be tight on the leg? There also seems to just a tad roomy in the butt. I'm not sure how these should be fitting. Can anyone help me with this?
Margaret S on Jul 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't think the boy shorts are meant to fit super tight like bike shorts, but not loose either.
Do you carry a size 6 in Lycra black boy shorts?
I have a small bottom, big top
Sherri F on Jun 28, 2015
