Rowan Board Short | Natural History Museum

Made from a quick drying 100% recycled polyester fabric with a secure adjustable drawcord, the Rowan board short is an adventure ready, mid-rise board short that packs down into its back pocket.

In collaboration with the Natural History Museum, we’ve hand-selected illustrations from the work of pioneering 17th century naturalist Maria Sibylla Merian, creating a unique all-over print that runs across our women’s swimwear collection.

A German-born naturalist and scientific illustrator, Maria travelled the world’s oceans observing insects and flora. For more information about her life and work, read the full story over on the Broadcast.

Comfy and great pattern

Only slightly annoying thing is that the hem has a habit of flipping over and the underside is white, but this is a really minor point and the shorts are really nice

Great girls boardies, though not best suited to the curvy among us

I bought these to go with the matching bikini top and really wanted some sturdy but flattering female board shorts. The positives: the fabric is really soft and feels good quality, the mesh bikini bottom sewn inside is unusual but welcome in girls boardies and will be great when using these to surf and swim in, and the print is beautiful. The only negative is the way the fabric is gathered into the waistband means that is you have a small waist but wider hips like me, the fabric kinda puffs out in exactly the wrong place which isn't terribly flattering. It isn't enough to make me want to return them though because in the water no one is going to notice!
