"Boys are good for something... inspiring girls fashion! Boy shorts look great on every body type- probably good reason why they are so popular. Although they tend to cover more skin, boy shorts are so cute! Anyone can wear them and still feel confident in a swim suit. Boy shorts are a swimwear version of hot pants. They usually have a low rise, and look like little shorts. The back coverage is also full, but different from most full coverage bottoms of other styles, they tend to have a more cheeky cut. Boy shorts can range in coverage- they can have a very square cut where little skin is exposed, or be very low in front and have a skimpy Brazilian back. Some types of boy short are just shy of being board shorts. Because of their square shape, boy shorts are especially great for narrowing at the hips."""""""""""""
