La Blanca 'Boardwalk' Shorts
These shorts are just what I have been looking for. Much better than skirted bottoms or cover ups. These can be used for water activities, but look good just as a pair of shorts. I ordered size medium and thought the fit is just right, I wear size 8-10. The shorts are not meant to be tight, and they have a somewhat adjustable waistband. I like the look of the grommets; they add style to the shorts. I bought the La Blanca "Glamour" tankini in seaglass to wear with these-what a perfect outfit! I was not familiar with this brand-but I will remember it now. And now, for the best part, the shorts made me look good-better than I am! They are very flattering.
Great swim shorts
I wear these whenever I get out of the water over my swimsuit or even with my tankini--they dry quickly and are very comfortable. The earlier version ran large but I think this newer style fits more true to size. I'm a size 8 in a swimsuit and a small fits just right.
I bought these to wear when I paddleboard and for when I visit Hawaii and we take our morning walks on the strand, to be able to hop into the water right after the walk. I am 5' 5 1/2 and weigh between 125 and 130. I wear Mediums in almost all shorts and swim shorts I've ever bought, and these are swimming on me - no pun intended (but you have to admit that was pretty good!) I will return them for a small and hope they fit better, because I think they have potential for what I want them for.
Just the right length, rise, and fit for comfortable beach shorts. I am usually and 8 to 10 in pants with a "curvy booty." Based on other reviews, I ordered a small, but it was just a tad too small - the crotch and rise were sitting too high. Expect medium will be better. Material has no stretch, and fit is relaxed.
