      Not sure these are shorts...

          I really like these swim suit bottoms, but I am not sure I would call them shorts. They come down a little further on the leg than the bikini bottoms, which is nice for the over 40 crowd at a neighborhood pool. However, I have some actual swim shorts, and these aren't even close to that sort of coverage. That said, I think these are great. They look extremely cute with the tankini top, and will get lots of wear this season.

                  I was disappointed when my original package did not come with my shorts. A quick email to customer service and within an hour I got a speedy response that they would be in the mail immediately. Since I ordered these for a trip, I needed them by a specific deadline. The shorts are well made and provide good coverage. I overestimated my size and while I fit a size 12 on top, the bottoms could have been 1-2 sizes smaller.....this is NO fault of Boden, simply my body shape and size. I can't say enough about their great customer service and their commitment to high quality products. The top portion of this swim suit was well used and I substituted for some old bikini bottoms. But I will be back again for the swimwear, now that I have better sense of sizing. I am not hesitant to order online!

                    The boy short cut provides gerat coverage and looks good too. My only suggestion to Boden is that they offer it lined both front and back . then it would be more durable during swim time at the pool

                      I loved the fabric of this suit, and the top is super, but the boy-cut shorts are not flattering on me. I tried a variety of sizes, but none seemed to work. I hope Boden will offer this suit next year with a more traditional bottom to pair with the great top! Also, I would love it if the top were a bit longer to cover the tummy better! Alas, I am sending it back.

                          Super cute bottoms! I actually sized up and found they still fit fine and were super comfortable. I like lots of coverage on my swim bottoms and these were perfect. Cute print too.

                            I love this suit!! Very comfortable and looks good. I thought it would be to much material on the bottoms but it covers just enough to be flattering. I bought the blue and white and love the color. The band might be the only thing I have trouble with but not enough to make a formal complaint.

                            I wanted to love these but they were a bit too short for my tush. Perhaps a size larger than my usual 6 would have worked, but summer is almost over, and with the twist front top, my husband said I looked frumpy. That's an instant no-go!!

                              I LOVE this swimsuit bottom. I have a curvy body (5'2", size 8) and swimsuit shopping can be a frustrating chore. This bottom fits true to size; it's comfortable and doesn't ride up; AND it's cute! Highly recommended. Fits like my favorite pair of underwear.
