Silvana Board Short

The Women's Silvana Board Shorts from Prana are exactly what you need to take advantage of each and every sunny day this summer. Four-way stretch fabric ensures a comfortable fit, and a hook-and-loop fly closure with an internal drawcord at the waist helps you dial things in perfectly. A back zippered welt pocket lets you store a car key for the ride home or a couple dollars to grab some snacks during the day.

  • Board shorts for sunny days from beach to mountain streams
  • Recycled materials are eco-friendly
  • Stretch fit moves with you through active days
  • Dries fast to prevent a chill on spring days
  • Rear zippered welt pocket secures personal effects
  • Secure fit courtesy draw cord and hook-and-loop fly

Not for slim figured girls

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: small

I'm 5'5 116lbs, 25" waist, short waisted, long legs, slim in the waist, hips and butt. I ordered the small which was just hanging on me. Although the shorts can be tightened with the waist cord, it resulted in bunching in the front. Not for me. The shorts are super lightweight, well made and came about mid thigh. Girls who are more curvy would like great in these.

Great shorts!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

From Wife: These were a go to item when on our honeymoon. They were great for excursions that needed shorts, but also required a swimsuit. I could wear these all days. They are long enough so my legs don't rub, but they are not as long to cover all the way to the knee!
Looking into getting another pair for the summer!

Great shorts!

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

💯 pleased with these! Great stretch, perfect length for an athletic adventure, and fabric feels great! Due to the Velcro, I’d suggest washing separately from delicate items. Sometimes Prana sizing can vary but this one is spot on! (I like my clothes slightly loose).

Comfortable fabric, secure closure, nice fit, good length. For me, these were true to size. Solid choice.

These board shorts are great.. I would say the large for like a size 30. They’re a great length.. not too long, not too short. The only downfall is that the Velcro isn’t the strongest and will occasionally pop open.. it helps that they have a tie to keep them closed. They dry quickly and the patterns are really cute.

Prana for the win!

I purchased these to replace a pair of Patagonia Baggies I was using as boardshorts. They were too short and super tight on my legs, which made them uncomfortable for long days out in the water. I have a Prana swimsuit and I was kicking myself for not keeping with Prana on the boardshorts. I love the fit and color of these (I got the Cargo Green color) They are super soft and stretch in the hips and legs (super helpful if you are a little curvy) and my favorite part is that they come down further on the legs to give you more coverage. I love to SUP and after hours in the sun my legs take a beating so its nice to have a short that can protect my skin. Stick to Prana!!

Comfortable not baggy. Fits the curves while leaving room in the legs

Attractive though potentially precarious

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I like the style and fit of this short though wonder if the velcro closure might not be very secure.

great, quick-dry, shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: medium

Prana shorts rarely disappoint. I am confused by some of the fit comments in previous reviews. I am typically size 8, and the medium is perfect. They might run big for people with small butts and small hips.

Thanks for your sizing information. It's so helpful!!

Great shorts!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: X-small

These are easy to wear. Very light and cool in the Summer heat! I love the color choices and the feel!

Board Shorts for Curvy Girls

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

Finally, board shorts that are long enough and large enough for ladies with a bigger booty. Just because I'm a mom doesn't mean I'm ready to look like a slob. These shorts are flattering and stylish, all while being modest enough to cover my not so toned post kids hips, buns, and thighs. They worked great for a day at the beach and paddling the lake with my kids.

Great fabric

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I got these for my girlfriend who went to Costa Rica for a few weeks. She was really stoked when she got them because of how soft and stretchy the fabric felt. It dries quickly and is really light. I'd recommend these to anyone who is looking for cute board shorts for the beach or a SUP.

Good price Vibrant Colors

  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: small

I forgot Prana runs BIG BaBoom. Gotta eat more. The shorts are awesome for the price, just what I was hoping for. I am short and the shorts are not a nice midi for someone of my stature. I am going to keep em even if they are BIG but I am thinking I will look more rock and roll with them sagging off of my hips. I hope they dont come down midst action. Suspenders will help. But really, these shorts are a great length and I like the Fabric super-soft and the color is electric. I purchased the Purp. and me likey a lot:)
Ps. I have only tried these on so far.
