Over the years I've owned a number of fight shorts, from the first version of the Sprawl short to later incarnations by Fighting, Jaco and Truth. All of these board shorts were made for men and thus, hit right around the knee on my rather short legs. I've been looking for some time for a pair of board shorts for women that were not pink or camouflaged, not that there is anything wrong with those design aspects, but because in the gym, I like to wear black. Therefore, I was delighted to see that Wet Effect, a long-time purveyor of fight shorts that could be purchased blank or emblazoned with a personal or company logo, was now making board shorts for women.
I ordered about fifteen items from them, primarily consisting in fight shorts and grappling tops for my guys, but did a prototype of the Women's Fight short and the Women's Vale Tudo short for myself.

Wet Effect Women's Fight Short
- Super durable stretch microfiber
- Side seam split
- Lycra flex panel
- Adjustable drawcord in waistband
My favorite part about these shorts is the length, although the side slits can sometime ride dangerously high. I believe that's what compression shorts are for.

Price: $32. Screen printing a logo is an extra $4 per item. These puppies are half the price of average fight shorts, plus you can add your own log for a couple extra bucks. Imagine...you could have your very own pair of fight shorts that say "Dana White is a Tool." Look for those to be appearing on the Pugilista website soon.
These bad boys have become my new favorite fight shorts. Although I tend to like wearing Vale Tudo shorts for conditioning, the board short style from Wet Effect is perfect. It is wonderful to see a company carry gear for women...especially since it is not covered with smatterings of hot pink tribal scroll.
