When you plan to let it all hang out at the beach, you likely don't mean your swimwear. Skimpy bikini bottoms simply don't cut it. You want to relax and have fun, not fixate on perceived flaws or scorched buns.
If sun protection and confidence are your jam, meet your new go-to beachwear: Firpearl Women's Swim Shorts, on sale for just $23 right now. These No. 1 bestselling women's board shorts have earned some 11,500 five-star ratings — a solid indicator that you'll love them, too. What shoppers adore most is the awesome coverage and comfort of this high-waisted, thigh-covering, UPF 50+ miracle worker.
The nylon/spandex shorts pair well with most any bikini, tankini or rashguard top. The 12 color and style choices make the matchmaking easy. Some even come with a drawstring for extra assurance in the waves and at the water park! Sizes range from 8 to 26.

Firpearl Women's Swim Shorts
True coverage and comfort at last
Not everyone wants to bounce around in what are basically swim panties. Shoppers say these longer Firpearl swim shorts have removed their old swimsuit anxiety and allowed them to have more fun. What say we ban the term "bikini-ready" altogether?
"A confidence builder," said one thrilled shopper. "How have I spent a lifetime without these? Ordered for a last-minute cabin getaway at a place with a pool and hot tub. I usually spend so much time and energy adjusting my bottoms as I swim and chase kids, or worrying about how my body looks to others with all my lumps and bumps showing.... I did not think about my swimsuit even ONCE. I spent the entire day in these, and they dried quickly.
"Finally a swim trunk that a woman can wear to cover cellulite or stretch marks or just to be modest," said another appreciative five-star reviewer. "They stayed in place and dried quickly — love it."
They play hard too
Whether you're hitting the water park or paddling the bay, these shorts love action!
One active mom said: "I have worn these four times now, three times kayaking and once paddleboarding, and I love them! So much so that I am going to order a second pair. I am a 56 year-old, 5'5", 185 lb. woman who has a 15-year-old sports-minded daughter who keeps me going! They aren't so tight that they cut into my thighs, yet they stay put and aren't riding up while I'm climbing in and out of the kayak. I wash in warm, rinse in cold with mild detergent and hang to dry (like I do with all our my swim clothes) and I haven't notice any deterioration yet."
Another fan added: "I planned to do a full day of water activities. Full thigh coverage is what I most needed. These shorts provided the coverage I wanted. The attached panty insert was unexpected, comfortable and added to the high quality.... At the end of the day, the shorts were washed and hung to dry. Look brand-new! Ready for my next adventure...."
If you've got plans in the works for some wet outings, these Firpearl swim shorts have got you covered.
