    Feels true to size

    These are mid-weight neoprene shorts with a knit waistband with a sturdy drawstring.  I ordered them in two sizes for comparison.  There is not much difference between the two, though.  The larger of the two is looser in the backside/upper thigh area, but the waist and leg fit pretty much the same in both.  The shorts are designed for a more hourglass-shaped figure than mine (I am an apple-shaped person), so the waist on both pairs causes a depressing bulge.  However, the piecing of the shorts, with no central seam, avoids the dreaded camel-toe and the seams are flat and completely chafeless.  Other than the waist issue, they are comfortable for swimming and paddling and DO NOT ride up or roll on me.  I will say that neoprene has *some* give but not a lot, and if you have large thighs I don''t think these will make you happy.  I decided to keep both pairs, since they are exactly the length I want, are pretty much tugless and are comfortable worn for long periods.  I would recommend these to anyone looking for a reasonable-length, comfortable, durable, snug short that doesn''t show everything you''ve got or bag or cling or bunch when wet, and doesn''t creep into places it shouldn''t when you bend over.  Great for swimming, surfing, paddling and walking on the beach.  I only wish it came in other colors.

    Feels too small

    I like how these shorts help keep water out (most of the time). They''re short but just short enough for my liking. What I don''t like about them is that they''re a bit tight so consider buying one size larger.

    Feels too small

    I love this short, I need a lot of coverage because I''m allergic to the sun so I ordered this paddle short. Perfect in every way with the exception that the sizing is off. Way smaller than I expected, I ordered a large according to the sizing charts and it feels like a small/medium. Other than that I love them so much I would get another pair in a bigger size.

    Exactly what I was looking for as we prep for our 1st stand up paddle session (anticipating that I may spend more time in the water than I really want, so the extra warmth will be appreciated!)
