          • Swimming

          I looked all over for new swim trunks for my six year old little boy. He's thin and tall therefore, most either are too small lengthwise or too loose in the waist and swimwear doesn't come with an adjustable waist. I found these and they fit PERFECTLY! The sizing is great both in length & waist. Thank you Boden for making such a great product!

          Good quality, but hard to fit

          Pros

          • Comfortable

          Cons

          • Bad Design
          • Drawstring Does Not Help
          • Needs adjustable waist
          • Poor Fit

          Best Uses

            My almost 4 year old son can hardly fit in to size 3 shorts right now, but the 3/4 surf shorts hang off of him, and the drawstring at the front doesn't not help. Really wish they would make the drawstring around the entire waist to help, especially when the sizing covers two sizes.

                Love these swim trunks. Made with great quality. My 8 year old son is very picky about his clothes and he loves them. I did have them taken in a little bit as the waist was big, but he is a very slender boy.

                      I bought these for my 4 year old. He has really starting picking out his own style so I had to guess if he would like the fit and pattern of these shorts...he loves them! They fit true to size (I ordered the 4-5y) I hope he will be able to wear them for 2 summers since they are a tad long on him now. Seems like good quality too

                          I ordered my son the red and navy stripe and turtle camo print. The are really nice in person. I love the look of them. They seem very well made. They come just below his knee. I got him the 5/6. He wears a 5 in most other brands if that helps for sizing.

                              These are great, and just about the only swim trunks that fit my son in the waist! I also got the bathers, and they fit in the waist too, but are much shorter! These trunks are really long, though, be aware that you could size down. My son is 9, but tiny for his age. He is about 58 pounds and 51 inches, and I got him the 7-8 size. They are way past his knee, he could easily wear the 6-7. But we'll keep these, he can wear them for two years!
