Just what I wanted

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

These swim shorts look great, they are very comfortable, and they dry fast. They are just what I was looking for...modest two-piece swim suit!

Love the board shorts

    Love these! Nice fit!

    Cute shorts but WAY big

    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: xs

    These are such cute board shorts! Great pattern and quality. BUT, typical of Prana bottoms, they run HUGE! I ordered the XS (sadly, the smallest size) and they fell off of me. I have a 26" waist & 34" hips, which should have made an XS fit fine. Prana needs to adjust their sizing on their pants & shorts to fit their athletic customer base! Unfortunately, I have to return these shorts.

    Great

    • Size Bought: Medium

    I use them as my swim bottoms. Works great for swimming and for in and out of the water.

    Cute and Fun

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    I love these shorts. I use them primarily when doing water activities or as a beach cover up, but they are super cute to wear anywhere. It's a great length that isn't too short, yet short enough to show off some leg. Great quick drying fabric and fit with adjustable waistband.

    My wife really likes it

    These shorts are great! Very comfortable! I got a medium as I wanted them to fit loose over my bathing suit. They are quick drying on the river.

    Great shorts!

    I got these to wear over my swimming suit. Love the design and the fit is great! I found them to be true to size and an ideal length for me.

    I'm a size 4 to 6 depending on the article of clothing. I ordered the medium instead of a small after reading one of the reviews. Glad I did. Perfect Fit!

    Does it have a key loop in the pocket?

    Hello lauren,



    No, there is no key loop in the pocket.

    Great for water sports.

    I wore these kayaking down the Provo River. Worked perfectly. Super comfortable. No riding up or anything. Plus they are super cute.

    Serious comfort

    Prana 4 evah!

    So I love these shorts. I use them to Golf, Hike, Climb and work. they are super light weight. Water just beads right off them and they are breathable. You don't feel like you are wearing a board short because they don't cling or suffocated the skin. They dry fast and keep you dry and the length is stellar I don't mind showing off leg but not too much. On me it hits about 5" above the knee when standing. I love prana and this short is no exception either! I highly recommend them to any active lady. I have the Black Flora color and it is adorable. I am 5'4" with a 25 waist and the XS fits perfectly!

    Nice review, Jane~!

    Love these! Very lightweight.

    I've just worn these around so far (no swimming yet), but I love them. They are pretty and fit great. I have a straight body and wear about a size 10 usually. Size L is perfect for me. These are a very light weight supplex type of fabric. They are lighter than others I have had, but they are really nice in this hot weather.
