The waistbands in BaNG! Swim Shorts


Our swim shorts feature an elastic, extra wide-size, and flat-shaped waistband that avoids cutting and putting excessive pressure into the midsection. The lack of scrunching or cinching in this area of the body makes it easy on “love handles,” helping to contour the body better.

The usual “gathered style” waistbands of most common swim shorts out there deliver too much cinching and scrunching around the waistline.

The technique used in the construction of BaNG!’s Swim Shorts provide cleaner lines around the waistline. This delivers a more natural and streamlined look all around, while also providing superior comfort.

On each page for any of our products, in the lower part of the text section of the product’s description, you can find a “SIZING" tab that when touched or clicked will show the chart and table with sizes and measures information for that specific item. 

* For swimwear in general, the rule is that measures are stated mostly by reference of waist size. Using this example here, if you usually wear 33" in jeans or pants, then a Large should be your size of reference as per the list. 

* Have in mind though that some items like our Swim Mini-Briefs, or our Flexi Boardshorts, are cut to fit quite tight on purpose. So if your personal preference is to wear a tight fit, go for the size as per the table. If you prefer to feel the fit more relaxed, go one size up.
