I was heading off to St John and wanted some comfortable shorts that I could wear in the water instead of a bathing suit. These boardshorts are great. They are soft and comfortable and dry quickly. I like the fact that they don't have a tight elastic waistband. They are true to size. I bought them in two colors and am very happy with the purchase.

I am so happy with these! I was looking for something to wear to a tropical beach - to snorkel - surf, etc! These are perfect. Great fit - nice and loose in the leg -- great rise on the hip! Can't wait to get them wet! I ordered a size 11 -- I am a 6/8 on "regular" pants/shorts.

These are fantastic. Even though they are in Junior's sizes, they still fit an adult woman's curves. I am fairly pear shaped, and these did a super job of giving just enough extra coverage on the bottom, while still looking sporty and cute. They are very comfortable and quick drying. They are not lined. I typically wear a size 6 or 8 in jeans, but ordered an 11 in these for a bit extra room in the seat. They fit just how I hoped, not tight.

I bought both the black and white shorts for a long vacation. I had hoped that they would perform double duty - to wear hiking and swimming while on day-long trips. I planned to wear them over swimsuit bottoms to save room in my day bag. While the fabric is strong, you can see the pattern of my swimsuit bottoms through the white shorts even when they are dry. The shorts are great - they are super soft, dry quickly and fit true to size. Remember - these are board shorts. They are not designed to fit tight, but allow room for movement when surfing. The black pair is great for the double duty of hiking and swimming, but I will save the white pair for dry activities only.

Great shorts although one seems to be bigger than the other. I bought one in black first, then ordered another in blue. The blue one seems to be larger than the black on and I'm not sure why! Other than that, I love the quality, fit and style. I wish the rise was a bit higher - maybe an inch or so. They sit really low on my hips.

There's a lot to love about these shorts which I wear for running. I especially like the light, airy fabric especially in comparison to the stuff most running shorts are made of. I like that there is no attached panty which prevents air circulation. I love there is a pocket big enough for my iPhone. Only thing wrong with these shorts is the pocket is on the side of the leg which makes me feel unbalanced. Wish shorts were routinely made with back pockets. Front and side pockets impede with forward motion. Hard to be unaware of what you're carrying.
