swimsuitsforall is dedicated to helping women love their curves. We know that it can be difficult to feel confident at the beach or pool, especially when you have to settle for plus size swimwear that doesn't fit properly or suit your sense of style. That's why we've created an unbeatable selection of swimwear fashions for sizes 8 to 32. Our mission is to provide the perfect swimsuit for every woman, so that trips to the pool and beach vacations can be events that you look forward to and enjoy to the fullest.

Cover ups play an important role in any swimwear ensemble, as they allow you to look fashionable on your way to the water and when you're sunning yourself on the shore or the pool deck. Board shorts are one of the most popular cover up options and add a fun, sporty look to a swimwear outfit. Women's board shorts can be worn with one piece and two piece bathing suits, and if you wish, you can slip on a swim tee or a tunic with board shorts for more coverage.

All women's board shorts tend to have a loose, comfortable fit through the legs and an adjustable drawstring waistline, but there are differences between board shorts. You can find plus size board shorts that are hemmed to fall to the mid-thigh and looks that conceal more of the legs by traveling to the knee. Some board shorts have elastic bands that run all the way along the waist, while others only have elastic in the back for a flat effect in the front.

Your options for plus size board shorts range from solid color styles to board shorts with graphics, contrast stitching and other fashionable features. Board shorts are even available with pockets for stashing your valuables.

Finding it hard to decide which plus sized board shorts will work best for you? Let one of our plus size swimwear experts help you decide! A member of our customer service team can recommend board shorts to match specific swimsuits from our one piece, bikini and tankini swimwear collection or to coordinate with swimsuits that you already own. An expert can also provide you with advice regarding which size to try and which women's board shorts are most likely to give you a perfect fit.

    PERFECT for my legs!

    I had to purchase and return a few times over to find the best fit, and I chose these board shorts for a few reasons: • The stretch. I hate feeling confined in a non-flexible fabric. As a fitness instructor and personal trainer, I love stretch fabric as my thighs are strong and 100% cotton or linen anything refuses to fit comfortably. • The side pocket. Many women's shorts don't come with a Velcro pocket. Well I keep Chapstick in my pocket every day and if I can't have it handy, I'm not buying the item. NOPE. • Longevity & durability. You can't beat the quality of the fabric for the price! I'm not a trendy shopper and will almost always buy well and buy once. All my trainer gear lasts for at least 10 years and I put my clothing through a LOT! I like simple. I like durable. These shorts fit the bill 110%.

    Nice Shorts for cover-up

    The size selection for the curvy ladies. Shorts are a Nice fit, but I will be wearing these as cover-ups. There is no inner lining.

  5. 3 out of 5 stars.

    Very nice

    The material is awesome, dries quickly. Fits true to size, good length and has a little stretch to it. Just enough. The only drawback is the weird closing. I'd rather keep it smooth, without adding a bump on my belly because of the closing. I will be sewing it and removing the tie closure. Other than that, defiantly a winner.

BEST ANSWER: Yes you can wear them over a swimsuit. I recommend you go up one size though to allow for the extra material and bunching the suit might do. The board shorts have no liner in them as they are just shorts but can be worn in water and do really well. I wear mine as a suit bottom with a pair of underwear underneath and they have worked out really well as a suit bottom. I'm an amputee and prefer board short length bottoms which is why I've gone this direction. They also are very comfortable and dry really fast. Been very happy with purchase.
