Just short of perfect
Sometimes with 4-way stretch boardshorts it feels like you're wearing nothing because the fabric is so sheer. Personally I'm not a fan of that. These boardshorts are pigment printed, which gives the fabric some substance. You still get the stretch and comfort from the Diamond-Dobby tech, but feels more like wearing men's shorts than girl panties. (not that I know what that feels like! XD). Awesome back pocket and a true to fit waist.
