  • Wear board short over your favorite swim bottom
  • Board short does not include white swimsuit
  • 4.5" inseam
  • Comfortable, covered elastic waistband
  • Boardshort fits true to size.
  • 58% Nylon / 42% 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.

Elastic Waist Board Short is rated 4.375 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable shorts These shorts are great for the price. I was looking for shorts to wear with a one piece suit. It's versatile, you can use them for every day wear. It has elastic and a string for comfort fit. I only wished that it had panties attached. It's fine if you have a swimsuit underneath, but there are some excersises that I would not feel comfortable doing because they are wide in the thigh area. You can see everything underneath. Overall, I like them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable! Just got these and was first impressed with how light weight and sort they are. So, I tried them on and they are extremely comfortable. I love the elastic waist and the fact that they have pockets. I had planned on wearing them as the "bottoms" to some tops I also got, but the loose fitting nature, coupled with the fact that there isn't a "lining" would leave me revealing a bit more than I need to while sitting at the pool. :). No worris, though - a short pair of compression/bike shorts, or a bikini bottom and I am good to go! IF they had these shorts with a liner, I would call them absolutely perfect and order several pair to make sure I always had one. They do seems to run close to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect choice These shorts are really great! They are unlined which had me concerned that I would be having to wear underwear to retain modesty in the water, but the cut is such that it is not necessary. They are true to size waist wise, but are actually slightly shorter than pictured. These hit me slightly above mid thigh. I would say these shorts are roughly 3 inches from the inseam. I really like these so much that I've already ordered another pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE LOVE LOVE I love these shorts, the fit was very comfortable for sitting at the pool. I bought a size bigger for a looser fit and it was perfect. The drawstring/elastic waist i love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'd buy this product again. ...nice for workouts, beach, and pool wear. I'm chubby and it does nothing for my size, however; but during work-outs I'm really not concerned with that so much.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Shorts are very short My idea was to buy as a light weight pair of shorts. I'm only 5ft. so short shorts have really never been a problem. These shorts are SHORT. Gathers around the waist. Nicely made. Material very nice. I'll use them over top of my bathing suit...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect Extra Coverage I liked them on. They are about 5 inches long, but please note they do not have a built in panty which was fine for my needs for a trip to Mexico, where I needed a little more coverage & quick drying for day trips that include swimming along the way. Perfect for going over swim bottoms as a cover up or as swim bottoms as long as you didn't order a size too big. Was true to size for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts I bought these to be used as shorts, not swimsuit bottoms and I love them. They fit great, they look great and you can wear them anywhere with a T-shirt or casual top.

what is the inseam length?
A shopper on Feb 18, 2015
does this have a built in swimsuit bottom?
kathy h on Jan 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No. The board shorts don't have the built in bottom.
Is this a short that goes over an existing one piece suit? Or is this actually a bathing suit bottom and your buy a top for it?
Martha E on Feb 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: These are worn over an existing bathing suit (one or two piece suit). There is not a liner inside the short.
Note: The shorts do not stretch like swim suits do. I recommend buying a size up if you want to avoid leg restriction while swimming.
Do they have a drawstring in them?
A shopper on Jul 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: On me, the waist of the shorts is low, more on my hips. It is larger that I expected and it helps to hold them up by using the drawstring.
Is there an inner panty inside?
A shopper on Jun 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There's no panty liner inside. These are meant to be worn over a bathing suit. They're also great when you're being active...like riding a jet ski.

A shopper on Feb 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: yes I do and they do great ... but no they do not have panty but I put them over a suit bottom
Does it have a panty?
A shopper on Aug 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No. But most comfortable "bottoms" I own.
Can I swim in these shorts?
A shopper on Sep 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: These board shorts are great to swim in. They dry fast. The only thing that keeps them from being perfect is they do not have a liner in them. If you are wearing them as a bottom to a tankini, you need to wear a swimsuit bottom under them. If you're wearing them over a one piece suit, you are all set.
Can I wear as a swim bottom?
A shopper on Jun 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes they can.
Hi.Do u ship to Australia?
A shopper on Feb 2, 2015
