To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I was pleasantly surprised how comfy and how soft the material was. I also bought the regular solid but much prefer the feel of the stretch. If anything I thought they were a bit big and was tempted to order the next pair in a different colour in a size smaller. Considering I am headed on a cruise for 2 weeks I opted to stick with the larger size. With the drawstring they can be tightened. I am short, 5'1" and they sit at the top of my knee which is where I wanted them to be. I won't be using them until January so can't say how they are in the water as I bought them for snorkeling. Excited to wear them.
Thank you Kanu Surf for making practical water wear for women who like to participate in very active water sports. It is hard to windsail when you are constantly worried about what is falling out or has pulled up or whatever. These board shorts are exactly what I've been looking to wear for kayaking, wind sailing, boating in general. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I'm a customer for life. I should say that I am pear shaped and buy pants that are generally too big in the waist to cover my stomach and my butt adequately. I generally wear 22 or 24 pants with a 34" inseam. I wore these over a one piece bathing suit, and throught they fit perfectly. Adequate room and the waist actually fit well enough to drag in the water without worrying about losing the shorts. Have I told you how ecstatic I am to have board shorts that fit a 6', 250 pound women who loves the water?
I'm short, fat and round and in need of stretchy shorts that can go from water to beach to walking to lounging and these are perfect. They sit just above the knee and are not too baggy and don't constrict when sitting, I like the blueish color too. I had some other Kanu surf shorts last year but they did not stretch at all and I threw them out but these are amazing. It has elastic and a pull string. I wear about a 24W in bottoms and ordered a 3x. Perfect fit.
Love these shorts! I have been looking for 3+ years for womens board shorts of this length. These are lightweight, dry quickly, and provide good coverage. They are a bit bigger than I would have liked, but not so much that I felt confident going down a size.
I’ve purchased these short in almost every color available in my size and I love them. I am 5’4” and they come right above the knee. I live in Florida so the lightweight material is great for humid weather. It dries quickly. I wear them when I shoot sporting clays, and sometimes in the summer we get caught in the rain. Within a few minutes my shorts are dry again. The fit is perfect and the elastic waist is very comfy. I highly recommend these shorts!
