These trunks are so cute BUT my son's, um, "man bits" fall out when he's sitting. If only Boden still made the long trunks! Or even if these were a little longer in the legs....

      I have purchased these shorter swim trunks for several years for my boys. I love how trim and stylish they are, and this year's design is an improvement in terms of the fabric -- it is a much more durable swimsuit like fabric, where the older models were more of a heavier fabric that was not as durable or fast-drying.
      There is one problem with these trunks, however. Because they flare out a bit from my skinny boys' legs, and because they are so short, there is a risk at certain times that they can be, um, a bit too revealing. I wish they hugged the legs a little more, which would solve this problem.

        My son has a 20 inch waist and is 5 years old so I can only buy pants with adjusters inside them so when it comes to swim shorts I only found that these fit him (he can still wear the 2-3 year size and I now have the 3-4 size... and they fit great -- they are so adorable and he gets lots of complements on them too.

          I got 7-8 for my tall 5 years old. Fit is good. Check the sizing for your kid before you get. My son loves these trunks.

              These are the best swim trunks. My son gets rashes and chafing from the long board shorts, and these have totally eliminated that. I will be getting another for next year...highly recommend!!

                Best Uses

                  I buy these adorable European style swim trunks for my boys every year. I just love the fit and fun prints. This year Boden made these trunks out of nylon, which I liked better than previous years' trunks made of knit. However, the nylon has a lining, and after about 3 weeks of wear, that lining separated from the outer layer of nylon. This happened in both my boys' trunks. I ended up putting the boys in last year's knit suits, even though they were completely faded because at least they fit and weren't misshapen. I really love the nylon for color fade resistance, but please revisit the design so the lining doesn't separate from the outer layer. (For reference, my boys were in the pool 1-2 hours a day 4-5 days a week, and I washed the trunks by hand every night and let them line dry.)

                      • Casual Wear

                      This swim trunk is attractive, but best of all, very comfortable. My grandson has been wearing them since 3 years of age and he is now almost 7. He won't wear any other swim suit. He also likes to wear them as shorts. They run a little small and I can never find them (online or otherwise) from July on. Otherwise they are perfect.
