Sizes can vary wildly from brand to brand. For example, a size "M" pair of shorts for one brand may be suitable for waists up to 32", but for another brand up to 34". Further, where sizes by measure are given, there are still differences – a size 33" waist pair of jeans from one brand may actually measure 35", and for another brand actually measure 37"!
Therefore, we strongly recommend you measure yourself accurately (as described at the bottom of this page) using a (tailoring) fabric tape measure and then make the appropriate size selection for your swimwear using the tables below – and for boardshorts especially, focus on the HIP measurements. For example, where your waist measurement suggests a certain (smaller) size to your hip measurement, you should choose the (larger) size that meets your hip measurement according to our size guide. This ensures you will be able to easily pull up the boardshort waist band past your hips when putting them on.
Should you still remain uncertain regarding sizing, please email us your measurements at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to assist in the appropriate size selection prior to you placing an order.
