These are very cute and comfortable. They have pretty good coverage. I first ordered these in a small as that is the size underwear I wear, but they were a bit snug in the waist so I got a medium instead.

I personally have figured out that if you have any flaws or extra weight boy shorts make the flaws more apparent and this short is no different. I ordered a large, normally I would wear a 9\/10 in regular short. I sent this back.

These bottoms look amazing on, but are completely and totally see through when wet! Also, the drawstring does not go all the way around the waistband, so it doesn't actually tighten for water sports, etc.

I would say the sizing on these leans more toward juniors than misses. I'm a size 4 and got a medium - they fit great. Not completely full coverage for the rear, but I'm "gifted" in that area so I wasn't surprised. Super comfy, nice lining, didn't ride up badly in the ocean. One thing to note: the drawstring is strictly decorative; it doesn't go all the way around the waist. Definitely a good investment.

It's exactly as described. Very cute. Wish it were a little longer for more coverage, but it's better than swim suits for cheek coverage, which was my goal.

These swim shorts are perfect. Very comfy, and fit well. The elastic waistband is nice and wide, so there isn't any hangover even though I have a lot of high hip (unlike the model shown!) :) Also not too loose that they didn't stay on great while in the pool. Based on the reviews, i ordered the large, which was the perfect size. I am about 5'7'' and 135 lbs, with a lot of roundness in my hips, which these shorts complement very nicely! :)

The problem here is this is a low, really low riding pant. How the heck is that supposed to stay on? Hips are made to hold things up and if the item's waist is lower than your hip bone, it doesn't fit well and won't stay up. I am so sick of low riding merchandise! Have to return. It is very cheeky in the rear, too.

Loved the style and material. Runs small in the waist. The band is pretty tight causing a little muffin top on me. I normally wear a 10 and the XL was too small.

Super comfortable and flattering swim bottoms. They're a little boring in black. I wish I'd gotten red or another fun color, but they fit well and are flattering even for those of us with a bit of a tummy. I'm a size 10, sometimes an 8, and got a large based on other reviewers. I've been working out a lot and I think they'll be too big when they get wet pretty soon. They do seem to get a little bit droopy when wet.

These were cute, but they kinda ended up making my shape weird looking. I'm on the curvier side, but these made me look more square. Also, I would order these one size up from what you normally where if you don't want camel toe.

I have thick thighs and a torso that is as long as my legs. This cut does not look good on my body. I prefer a regular bikini bottom.

My daughter plays in a san volleyball league. I bought these for her to pactice and compete in. They were such a big hit, I bought a pair for her parther as well. You do need to wearsone type of undie, as the sand creeps in, if you are doing sand sports. If it's just for swimimng, no issue. She's a size 5, we bought a small, perfect fit.

They look good, but are uncomfortable in the back and I wore them for only 1 week and now they have tiny black mold spots all over then. Yes, I did dry them out after every use.

Just got these and loved them so much I had to get a second pair! I'm a size 8 and was a little afraid they wouldn't look good based on the other reviews here. I got a large (I usually wear medium in everything) and they are the most flattering swim bottom I have ever worn! Plenty of coverage without feeling "old."

Nice for those days when you feel like you might want a little extra coverage than you can achieve with a string tied bottom. Super cute!

This is actually an update on the review I wrote in June under the same name, Jess. I wore these in a lake and to a water park, and what I noticed both times was that in the water they got a bit loose. In fact, on one ride at the water park I felt like if anyone had goggles underwater they could... you get the point. But out of the water they look great and fit perfectly. So perhaps people say they run small but I kind of wish I went with an XS like I normally wear.

Very flattering. I'm small -- 5'2", 102 lb, but bikinis are never flattering. I ordered a small bottom, and it was perfect. (I also tried the xsmall, which was too tight to be flattering.) If you're in between sizes, I would recommend sizing up, so it just skims your curves rather than squeezing them. Overall, a perfect swim suit bottom.

I have had these bottoms for less than 2 years and they are falling apart. The fabric is pulling away from the seam. Not my favorite bottoms.

I bought these for my fiancee for our honeymoon. They looked great on her. The only problem was the waistband. The material isn't that elastic and tended to feel/look loose and unflattering at the waistline. They made for better walking around the beach shorts than actual swim trunks.

I am 5'4 weigh 110 and I normally wear size XS in Victoria's Secret underwear. So because other reviews said these run small, I got a Small... and it fits perfect. I love the quality and the color is so vibrant. I got Azur because it was on sale with free 1 day shipping...and, Wow, Zappos does not disappoint! The only thing is, I haven't worn them in water yet or anything but I got them with the idea of water parks, boogie boarding or running on the beach in mind and so after moving around in my house I noticed that they scrunch up a bit, but I suppose that is to be expected? Oh well, still A+.

Brands I'd also recommend: Roxy, Pacsun

These shorts are well made but do run small. I'm a 0/2 ordered a small. Be aware that they have a low rise like a swim suit bottom, not like shorts.
