I thought the fabric would have less of 'swimsuit' feel, more of a cottony mix. If they were made in that fabric it would be good.
Also the cut is not flattering. I again modelled on other yoga shorts I have and this straight square leg the whole way around is not flattering. They look longer than 3" in length.
I compared against my lululemon 3" groove shorts ( which I have had for 10 years).
These are literally so flattering. I wear them everywhere!! Absolutely perfect for summer
