Fourth Element have been manufacturing male dive shorts for a number of years.
They have now (thank heavens) launched a pair of ladies Boardshorts, and stated that these should not be ironed. We like the 'you must not iron' bit.
The four-way stretch, quick drying, easy care fabric (95% Polyester / 5% Elastane) promises to give the diver greater freedom of movement.
Fourth Element have stated that to prolong the life of these shorts you should only machine or hand wash them in cold water and then line dry. (No bleach, no tumble drying, no dry cleaning, no fabric softener).
The back pocket and the fly is secured by 'hook and loop fastenings'. (For the rest of the World that means Vecro strips.) There is also a drawstring attached to the fixed waistband to ensure a secure fit.
These black 'Submerge' Boardshorts are a 'Mid Fit', ie the 4 inch / 10 cm in-seam comes to the mid thigh. They are available in black, black or black and eight UK ladies sizes: from 6 to 20.
