Women's AquaTerra Supplex Board Shorts
Very cool board short
I ordered @ $500 worth of swim stuff from LE a size down after following their measurement instructions. Don't ask me why, instincts, but I'm glad I did. As with the tankinis and swim minis, these shorts would have been unattractively billowy at the measured size. These are a little tight around the behind but the legs are not baggy and the length is perfect. The quality is the usual outstanding LE. The combination lace, Velcro, zipper front is a tad awkward but looks so snazzy, I care not. You shouldn't either.

I love the idea of the board shorts, loved the length and loved the color and material, but the were way to big. I normally wear a size 12, but had to reorder a 10 and am hoping that they will fit. They were not too bad in the hips but were about 2 inches to big in the waist. I'll update when the new pair arrives.

Love these shorts but.............
Think they would be a much better fit with some elastic in waist area. Anytime you offer things in plus sizes, you might want to consider how they may feel sitting, standing and swimming. These are great fit for standing and swimming but when sitting, need a little give to them for all day wearability comfort. Otherwise these work wonderfully well for that extra "coverup" we "full figured but still fashion conscious" women look for each bathing season. I have worn these shorts with either a "blouson" top over or a well fitted one piece under them and felt quite stylish, for years now. This year however I will have to return shorts while looking for same style but with elastic at waist, something I can comfortably sit around in all day. Otherwise you cannot miss with these shorts.

There is no 'give' or stretch.
Happy they 'fit' but couldn't bend or squat down since the fabric is rigid. It is so bad, the seam popped when I knelt. Had to return these. LE should use a fabric that stretches for true comfort. Too bad, because I liked the overall design, just not the material.

Very Flimsy material, but I liked the coverage
It would be better with out the rip zipper, no need for the decorative pullstring (just sticks out under the rash guard, the fabric is way TOO lightweight and flimsy. They need to review some of the Billabongs (especially the ones for boys) - the Billabongs fit brilliantly and the fabric weight is perfect - but difficult to find in the states!!

Nice board shorts; dry quickly
These run larger than stated size; recommend ordering one size down.

Length and leg fit is good, too big at waist.do not need velcro, do not like front tie feature
I am using this as a bathing suit. This product is good for older women who enjoy the beach but feel uncomfortable in conventional bathing suits. The length and fit in the leg is just right . I have been looking for this type of product for a long time and am thrilled to have it. I do not like the faux fly feature. I would rather have a hidden elastic waist. The waist is too big

These are the perfect board shorts, but run large. I am usually a 6. I reordered in size 4.

velcro closure is frustrating
Loved the styling and the material. Elasticized waist with a draw sting might work better. When you try and zip them shut the draw string gets stuck on the Velcro and impedes getting the zipper up and the Velcro fastened. I returned them.
