To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Great little swim shorts fit well over my one piece for a little more coverage in the upper thigh/hip and pubic areas They would also work fine alone with a bikini or tankini top, as they have a full (not high cut) panty under a looser fitting short. I think they are cute, and I am more comfortable if I don't have to worry about modesty. They fit true to size. if you're looking for a snug fit in a short, these are probably not what you're looking for.
For us big hipped thick thigh women, board shorts are hard to find but I am sick of wearing those dumb skirt tankinis to the beach (im only 51, not 91). These fit so perfectly and can even be worn when your out an about.
If you are short, or have short legs these shorts will be long on you. They are the length of my regular shorts, which I didn't want when I am swimming. If you like longer shorts as part of your bathing suit, you will like them. I ended up sending them back, because there was another set of bottoms from the same brand that fit better.
These shorts are very nice and they fit well - they were just a bit large, but the drawstring at the front can be tightened a bit, and with that they fit great. Note that the drawstring doesn't go all the way around - it's just at the front. There's also a snap and zipper closure.
Well I am very disappointed I had the same shorts in a medium and needed to order the next larger size which was a large due to scar tissue from my surgery on my belly..... clearly in the picture it shows the shorts with the tie strings on the shorts HOWEVER, the shorts I received have no tie strings whatsoever and also are quite a bit longer down my thighs almost to my knees! The main reason I wanted the shorts was because of the ability to tie them.
