Style Guide

Wearing a great pair of swim trunks makes all the difference in looking your best at the beach. 

Navigating all the choices can be daunting so we provide a few pointers to help you find your perfect match.


Your shorts should never be longer than an inch above your knee.

Over 5' 10"?  Wear an inseam 8.5"

Shorter?  Consider an inseam 6.5"

Trend setter?  The shorter 6.5"  inseam is the latest style and looks great on everyone.


Most men do not have silky, polyester fabric in their wardrobe.  So, ban it from your swimwear.

Nylon has a substantial, masculine look.

And always choose a matte finish over a shiny alternative.

The Fit

boto swim shorts have followed American sizing with a slightly more generous waist.

It is normal that they will fit snug at first.  They will stretch slightly after your first swim.

If you have lost weight, throw your shorts in the dryer at high for 10 minutes and they will shrink about 2%.


We hope you find your perfect shorts.
