Great Shorts!
September 27, 2010

Love the length & comfort of these shorts. I wear them over my swimsuit bottoms, so far they've been great & the fabric dries super quick too. :o)

Love them! Fit great, feels good just not crazy about the velcro
August 12, 2010

Everything about them is great except the velcro. If you don't tie them tight and you have to do something strenuous the velcro pulls open. That is the only thing I would change.

Very Nice!

Great swim short! I don't like showing off my "problem area" (thighs), and these were great! I paired them with a swim tank and worked wonderfully. Have worn to the beach, pool, waterpark, so they hold up well also. Mine are black, and through all of that, have not faded significantly. Recommended!

Great short
July 06, 2010

I loved the smooth material and the style, very slimming fit and not bulky/flare like other board shorts. I am usually between 4 and 6 and the 6 fits perfectly. I am planning to wear it on our upcoming vacation to the beach. Great customer service and item arrived quickly.

Too small, but nice material and cut
July 22, 2010

I ordered a size 10 (up from my regular 8) because I wanted them to be a little loose. However, they run pretty small, because even the 10 was unattractively snug. I will be sending them back, unfortunately. I love the soft material, and the trim and cut are very nice. But if you have an actual "bit-o-backside" I suggest ordering 2 sizes up. Also, the "Seminole" color appears brown in the photo, but it is more of a clay color, with a touch of red. Pretty, but not the brown I was expecting.
