Emily P.wrote a review of Lolë Sandstorm Board Short - Women's on July 1, 2010
I loved the way these looked online and was looking forward to ordering a pair of shorts from a women's manufacturer. To help you in terms of fit, I ordered a size 10 because I prefer my shorts baggy, and I'd usually wear an 8ish in pants. However when I tried these on, the waist was literally falling off - I have a huge butt and small waist but its okay to wear boardshorts riding low - these fell far below my butt line unless they were cinched in with the string, which was only in a tube instead of threaded through a flat waistband and gave unattractive bunching. Oddly, though the waist must have been at least 40 inches wide, the thighs were uncomfortably tight, which I is why I gave it a pass on ordering a size down. The thighs were tight and then flared out again at the knee. To top it off, the fabric was extremely thin and I can't see scrambling around on beach rocks and boats without tearing it.
