I love these boy shorts! I've only ever bought bottoms from here for the last 10 years. These last ones seemed tighter though and I'm 7 pounds lighter. so I'm not sure if they changed them a little or if it's just my body. I bought the mediums and am 124lbs, 5'5. They lasted about 4 years before they loose there shape and i have to buy new ones, but i really like the coverage.

Good quality - but you are better off just getting a bikini bottom.
Needs some support!

I love all of the Lime Ricki swimwear that I have purchased so far - except this boy short, which I categorize as average. I love the coverage of the band of fabric on the waist and the bands on the lower legs , but there is nothing to them - no elastic, no thicker material inside, and virtually no fabric support at all. They need some stability to really be effective, and to stay in place while swimming. Otherwise, the bottom covers well and is well-made.

I've bought two pairs of shorts, both large. I just bought these and they came just a tad smaller than my other two. The sizing might have changed, but I just wish that they kept it the same for returning customers. That's all.
Snug but Good

I love the boy shorts. They feel a little snug but not so much that I would order a size up. They look good on and they don't look like I am trying to squeeze into anything so that is good. I would rather have them a little snug than too loose. Love the material and the quality is awesome. They hold their shape well too.
Very cute and thick material but size smaller than expected

I love Lime Ricki swimwear. The swimsuits are made with thick, durable material. I got an extra large in these black boy shorts and they are a bit tighter than past extra larges I've gotten in different brands. I'm going to keep them and use them when I lose a few pounds. Motivation. :-) Never disappointed with Lime Ricki! Thanks!
Great boy shorts

I love how these fit, just wished they were a half inch longer. Still looking forward to wearing them all summer though.
Good style, small fit

I normally am a medium size for these, but I had to return them for a large. So, they run on the small size! Their swimwear is exceptional and I love it all!
on the small side

I know it's supposed to be snug it's a swim suit. But I'm a small/ med and I got a medium and they were on the tight side. So if your wondering between sizes I would go up 1. I love their swim wear and have ordered my swim suit from them the last 6 years. They make good quality swimsuits that last a long time.
My favorite swimshorts!

I have several brands of swimshorts and these are by far my favorite. Love the fit, love that I can be active at the pool and feel comfortable in them. Getting them in colors next year, but basic black is a great foundation piece.
