These are the best boyshorts that I have found! I also tried on pairs from Seafolly, Hurley, Roxy, and Nautica, and these are the only ones that I have ever been completely satisfied with. They offer a lot of coverage and support while still looking super cute, and being versatile/wearable/movable. I like the length of the inseam, not too long and not too short. They do not ride up in the back, and they do not have an awkward seam stitching up the center front like other boyshorts which can cause wedgies or just strange fit/looks. They are ultra comfortable. The inner lining and outer materials both seem high quality. They make me feel very comfortable and secure to move around freely and actively. I usually wear a size 4/6 or S/M; I am small and have a curvy butt, and I do not like very tight/clingy clothes - I ordered a medium in these and they fit perfect. The top elastic band can create a slight muffin top effect, but this does not bother me, since overall they fit and feel great. The most comparable pair of boyshorts to these which I tried on was the Seafolly Godess Roll Top Boyleg, which was more expensive and felt less quality and well made, and were more fashiony than functional (the roll top looked cute but was very impractical in my opinion for wearability and active moving and quick-drying). The quality and fit of these boyshorts made me really interested in the Prana brand, it seems like they have great fitting and high quality items.

The photo indicates there is no seam down the middle, but there is. I purchased this because I thought there was no seam, so am returning it.

This bottom was exactly what I was hoping for. It does run small, I am typically a medium but got the large and they fit great. Perfect coverage without looking frumpy. I haven't worn them out yet, but I'm very pleased with the look and fit.

What can I say? This is such a great item. It covers me without looking matronly, it doesn't dig in, it doesn't ride up, it's just a perfect swim bottom! High quality item and fabulous.

These are not for the hippy girls. They have a true to size fit and have held up well for the active swimmer. The seam in the crotch are is a little strange to begin with but not bothersome. It's just different from normal bikini swimwear bottoms. We are very satisfied with the quality of the brand.

I am 5'5 and weigh 128 lbs and the suit fits well. I wish they were slightly longer though. The suit is made with good quality fabric.

Although I had to return these, they are cute but I found them to run small which is typical of swimwear. For reference I wear a size 24 jean, 00 or XS & ordered the XS (0-2) in these but found them much too snug & could tell they would be riding up on me. I have not purchased the small yet but believe it will offer the full coverage I was looking for in this type of bottom. I would recommend sizing up unless you want that cheek peek look.

Cute, but runs small. I usually take an XS and this was too tight. Also, did not cover half my butt- if I wanted that effect, I would have bought a regular bottom.

Oh wow...these have a strange fit. I had gotten these in exchange for a SM Rena bottom that ran way too small. I was hoping a larger size and more coverage would be the trick but these looked so strange on. The legs are tight and there's this square-ish panel in the crotch area that kind of...well....opens up that triangle space between your crotch and upper thighs. With the legs being tight from the material your very upper thigh is squished out of the pant giving the whole thing a weird squishy triangle look. I'm not even going to try another size. But I will try (again) a different style. The tops are great! I even got the board short in SM and they are darling! Now if I can only figure out the darn bathing suit bottoms!
