Choosing the right Men’s lifeguard board shorts for you
When shopping for lifeguard shorts there are 4 factors to look out for: length, fabric, fit, and graphics.
The length of board shorts can vary from short lifeguard shorts that sit around the mid-thigh, to longer styles that sit on the knee. The length you go for should depend on how tall you are, how long your legs are, as well as how much leg you are comfortable showing off while poolside.
The fit of your board shorts will depend on whether they have a drawstring or elastic waist. Some men find elastic waists more comfortable, while others prefer the adjustable nature of a drawstring. Whatever your personal preference, we are certain we have a style for you.
Men’s lifeguard board shorts are available in a plethora of fabrics, ranging from soft jersey materials designed for poolside comfort, to water-ready polyesters and nylons. Lifeguards usually need board shorts that are moisture-wicking, breathable, and comfortable. Before choosing your board shorts, consider whether you want them to be prepared for land-to-water action - in which case, you need to be looking for men's lifeguard swim trunks.
Lastly, lifeguards will also want to consider the graphics on their board shorts. Our selection of shorts include completely plain designs as well as styles that feature certain "lifeguard" graphics. Check with your employer to see if they have any rules about graphics and colors.
