where can I find women's bathing suit bottoms that look like boy-shorts?

Asked by sfgal (280points) June 19th, 2007

I've noticed some stores, like Old Navy, have bottoms that aren't itsy-bitsy but they're still more like granny-pants underwear than shorts. I"m looking for something a little bit longer, for some "strategic coverage"... someplace that's not mail-order, so I can try 'em on first. Any ideas?

I'd try looking online first. That'll give you a quick idea of what style of boy-shorts you want.

You could always buy male surf shorts and wear a normal bathing suit bottom under em.

Or get Roxy or O'neil surf shorts. They do them quite short too if you're looking for shorter ones.

How much coverage do you want? Are you average-size or plus-size?
