  • 9/12/2013 sizing off

    rating star By Dave

    These seem like they would be great shorts but the fitting is off. 34 is usually a relaxed fit for me but these shorts were cutting across my pelvis.

  • 6/17/2013 very big.

    rating star By Grainne S.

    Really nice shorts but be careful when ordering pertaining to size. My son normally wears a 32 in jeans but in swimsuits he always sizes up so I got him a 34. BIG mistake. They do not have an elastic waist so there is no room for error.  They are definitely designed for a lean frame. They are not roomy in the thigh and hip area and are quite big on the waist. My son is lean so they are great for his frame. Just do not size up and they are perfect. A really great buy for the price.

  • 3/9/2013 Ehh. It's was a little too lose for me.

    rating star By David H.

    I don't about everybody at this review say that its too small when I have the problem that its loose. Coming from a fit 150 pound 5 '7 YMCA Lifeguard seems that its loose on the waist. I got a size 30 and sent them back and exchanged them for a 28. Which its weird because I wear size 31 waist jeans. If you are a skinny and fit lifeguard, then you should probably get 1 size smaller due to drag when you have have to make a approach swim to rescue the victim.

  • 7/20/2012 Too small

    rating star By AJ

    Swim trunks were great except they were way too small.  Anyone who has an athletic build needs to order 2 sizes larger.  Return was simple and new trunks were ordered.  Waiting to see how they will fit when they arrive.  All other items ordered fit perfect.  Order process and delivery was great.  Will order again.

  • 7/10/2012 Runs Really Small

    rating star By Lifeguard in Ohio

    My son recently got hired as a lifeguard.  I ordered these shorts for his new job.  He is usually a 29-30 waist so I ordered a size 32. They were too tight and he could barely get the velcro together.  I just ordered a size we'll wait and see if they fit.  He really liked the look of the shorts, just not true to size.

    rating star By Crystal K.

    I ordered two sizes bigger than normal and they fit great.  Great value, but if I would have ordered true to size, I would have been very disappointed.

    rating star By fanfun

    I know these don't cost much. But cheap isn't always good. I have 6 kids. Lifeguards run in my family. I need the suit to hold up well in the chlorine, salt and sun. The fabric needs to be soft and breathable because my kids are in bathing suits all day. They tend to get rashes because of the harshness of the material. Try Original Watermen's lifeguard shorts and the new board short liners. They guarantee no rashes. Cost more but worth it.

  • 7/28/2015 Too small

    rating star By NY

    I'm a size 32 and ordered a 32, but unfortunately it's too small and will need a size 34. With the return and re-shipping cost (approx $10) it's not really worth exchanging. Now I'm stuck with a size 32.

    I suggest buying a size up.

  • 7/8/2015 Boardshorts run large

    rating star By ellen

    In the reviews we read they said these shorts run 2 sizes too small so we ordered a larger size-those were way too big.  We sent those back and ordered the size worn normally-those were still too big.  Since they are needed for a job and its the smallest size we are just going to pin them on the sides to make them fit.  The material is nice-just the sizing is an issue.  Maybe put a better draw string in them to be able to adjust them more.

  • 7/5/2015 sized wrong

    rating star By Amanda

    I ordered these for my son that wears a size 33-34 waist pants in a size 34 and he could not wear them. Too small in every way, so he gave them to his brother that wears a 31-32 and they fit him.

  • 2/23/2015 The perfect lifeguard suit

    rating star By Todd L.

    The suit may be a litter snugger than I'd prefer, but this suit is awesome. It is comfortable to lifeguard in and doesn't have a lot of drag in case you need to get in.

  • 7/4/2014 Nice fabric

    rating star By Heather M.

    It runs a little small.  My son usually takes a 34 but needed a 36.  He likes the fabric though.

  • 6/7/2014 good quality, run small

    rating star By Kelly G.

    These boardshorts run small, even for my son who is slim, order the next size up if concerned. He did get the right size and has worn them for a year, alternating with other swim trunks, for his job as a lifeguard and they have worn well.

    rating star By Gdog

    Nice looking suit.  I read the reviews and ordered larger than I usually wear, first try was way too large.   Ordered one size bigger than I usually wear and it fit well.  They are loose when wet.  I am a lifeguard, am in a suit 5 days a week.   These are fine, but not my favorite
