        These shorts are among my twin boys' favorites! They adored the shorter version of toweling shorts Boden carried a few years ago; but, this design lends itself to a wider range of sizing (meaning, they'll fit well for more than one season). The toweling fabric is thick, durable, and easy-care. Love these!

          • Some Bleeding To Color

          Best Uses

          • Casual Wear

          We absolutely adore our nautical anchors shorts. We did experience some bleeding to the terry on our dark colors, and have to use a color catcher in the wash. Aside from the bleeding (Boden replaced my first pair promptly), I ordered again and used the color catchers. We do love these Terry shorts!

                • Casual Wear

                My boys swim on a summer swim team and wear these daily over their jammers to get to and from the pool. They are comfy and dry nicely (except for the waist band, which I do wish wasn't so heavy). All the moms have asked where I got them! They do run a bit big...I got them a size smaller than my boys usually wear in Boden and they will probably still be able to wear them next year. They got left in a swim bag too long and smelled a bit mildewy (part of life in the south), so I had to wash them with a splash of bleach and they still look and feel fabulous!
