After washing the swim trunks as instructed I was disappointed to see that the design faded and rarely appeared when the suit was wet or just appeared very faintly in a patch or two. It was a nice idea but didn’t hold up.
Trunks seemed well made and I liked the material and generally the way they fit, but the backside was huge and seemingly disproportionate from the rest of the trunks.
Pattern for a moment.
The trunks need to be completely dry and the pattern shows up when it initially gets wet. Once fully wet the pattern disappears and does not return until fully dry and wetted again. I think the description should say the pattern is only temporary when it first gets wet. The same is true in both salt and fresh water.
