Too big and too small at the same time

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:Runs large
  • Size Bought: Medium

These are cute and dry relatively quickly, but they're all at once too baggy and yet too small. This is due to the use of snaps instead of a drawstring. There's no way to cinch them up for ladies like me who have small waists and big hips. So they hang low. But if I bend, even slightly, the snaps burst like the shorts are too small. Pretty annoying. I would call the use of snaps a straight-up design flaw. Too bad.

They're fine, I guess

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit:Runs small

In contrast to the only other review here, I actually found these shorts to run a little small. I'd have needed to size up if I'd kept them. (I returned mine after trying them on.) And this isn't the fault of these shorts, but it's really hard to find women's board shorts that are long enough, especially for tall women. I'm 5'11", and these shorts just weren't long enough for me. I want more coverage over my thighs for sitting on a raft all day. Other than that, the material, cut, and assembly all looked and felt fine.
