  • 9/12/2013 sizing off

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • 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.
