I got a pair of Parke and Ronen from Gilt and immediately returned them. The fit on their trunks was terrible. After searching around, I finally decided on Sauvage Swimwear. Great prices. A decent selection of shorts, and I love how they look on me. You should definitely give them a try. I picked up the Floral Retro Square (lycra) and also the red midlength Boardwalk Board Shorts. I'm normally a 31" waist and I went with a medium for both.
Seriously, for the price and for the fit these are awesome. I sent them emails asking for lengths, etc. on their shorts and the staff was extremely helpful.
And if you're not sure of who this company is, it was one of their suits that was featured on the cover of Sport's Illustrated Swimsuit edition this year.http://www.sauvagewear.com/category/...ollection.html
