Tired of feeling exposed in bikini bottoms? You're supposed to be relaxing on the beach, honey, not worrying about perceived flaws or a sunburned tushy. And no one wants to wear a skimpy swimsuit at the water park.

If modest coverage, sun protection and comfort are your jam, we've found your new go-to beachwear: Firpearl Women's Swim Shorts. 

Amazon's No. 1 bestselling women's board shorts, the Firpearl boasts nearly 7,000 five-star ratings. That's a good 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 short pairs well with most any bikini, tankini or rashguard top. The 11 color and style choices make the matchmaking easy. Sizes ranges from 8 to 26 with most priced at $21 (down from $24).

And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? Let's fix that: You can sign up for a free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).

Max coverage and comfort

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. Came just above my knees!!!"

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! I ordered a size 16 (my normal pant size) and they fit great. 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're gearing up for a wet summer outing, these Firpearl swim shorts have got you covered.
