Sea to shore without skipping a beat.
The Patagonia Women's Colorblock Stretch Wavefarer Short effortlessly transitions from sea to shore with its lightweight, quick-drying fabric. Since it's meant for beach days and casual pursuits, the short features a DWR finish that limits water absorption. This means you'll be dry in a couple minutes, instead of dripping all over your car and home after hitting the beach. Another beach-friendly feature is the zippered rear pocket, which secures your cash and keys when you're playing in the surf and searching for coral remnants washed ashore.
Vibrant stripes bring an upbeat vibe to your summertime itinerary, with the contoured waistband wrapping your body with a flattering fit. Its scalloped hemline promotes full range of motion, especially considering the short's stretchy characteristics. The elasticized drawcord keeps it secure, so it's never slipping off when you're swimming or walking around town. Also, the side pockets provide everyday functionality for small necessities.

I like this short because the cloth is very light, and it has useful pockets. Perfect for daily use or hiking. The size runs a little small, I tried both the size 2 and the size 4. I kept the size 2, but it was a little tight. I believe Patagonia's short is designed for less curve women's, I have more curves so I decide for a more tight fit, because the size 4 was big in my waist.
Good materials, runs very small
- Fit: Runs small
The materials and features of this board short are nice. Unfortunately the sizing is pretty off and the shorts run very small. I checked the size chart before ordering and it was consistent with my usual size but when I got the shorts they were about two sizes too small. bummer
