These are probably my favorite board shorts I've ever bought. Most board shorts I have had in the past were fairly tight, especially in the crotch. When you first put them on they might feel like they'll be too tight but the material used is so elastic I forgot I was wearing them most of the time. The shorts are also exceptionally lightweight and when you get out they are not heavy even when fully soaked. The review above said he was worried about the transparency of the shorts when wet but I am at the beach and have worn both of the pairs I bought now and this has not been an issue at all. To sum it up these shorts are so comfortable I'm seriously considering wearing them all the time for any occasion.
Feels true to size
Feels true to length
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Purchased these board shorts in a hurry just before a trip so never tried on in store. Fit was tight and there's no elastic in the waist like may other swim suits so there was no give. I could deal with the close fit if not for the effect it has on my waistline. If you have even an extra pound or two around the waist, I'd pass on these. In addition, there's no liner and the material is pretty close to the body. I would imagine, once wet, you'll be putting on a show for everybody.
