Cheap, cheerful shorts that exceeded my expectations
on 24 July 2015
Some measurements for the 8-10 size:
Waist to front hem - 31.5 cm // Waist to back hem - 33 cm
Front leg width (seam to seam) - 27.5 cm // Back leg width (seam to seam) - 35.5 cm
Waist unstretched - 70.5 cm // Waist full stretched - 87 cm (approx)
I purchased the black/red/pink shorts to wear at a water park, in the pool and when doing water sports on holiday. I had some initial reservations as a few people had mentioned they were too small or too big, but these exceeded my expectations and fit perfectly. Not too tight but not overly baggy either - so no big bubbles up your shorts everytime you get in the water! ;-)
The back hem reaches my upper thigh so these are great if you want some swimming bottoms that actually cover your entire backside! Sure, they have no lining, but i don't really see the necessity of that. These are cheap and cheerful, but good enough to withstand multiple wears. The pockets and drawstring are functional, but the latter needs a bit of hard tugging to get it going. These are also really light weight so dry quickly, meaning you won't be left with heavy, dripping shorts all day! The design is pretty and looks better in person than the photo suggests, i think.
Would definitely recommend!
