      I am pear-shaped and struggle to find swim bottoms that cover what I'd like to cover. Usually I end up having to wear shorts over my swim bottoms, but not with these. I like that I don't have to worry about modesty(and sun burns) because the fit is great.

              I love this swimsuit bottom, and it was the draw to purchasing this suit in 2 different colors. It perfectly covers my butt and fits perfectly around the waist. I'm 5'5'' 115 lbs and ordered size 4. I usually have the problem of either too much cheek hanging out or if my rear is covered than too much slack at the waist. These bottoms fit perfectly! I hope to buy more colors if they go on sale more at the end of the season. A lot of other reviews complained that the rise was too low but I think it's perfect. I don't want the bottoms coming up to my navel.

                  Adorable but low cut

                      I had a hard time deciding whether to keep these! The pattern and cut are adorable and a little different (=cuter and more original) from your typical swimsuit. I loved the matching top. But the problem for me was that they are very low-cut in the front, so much so that I'd worry about being properly covered.

                      Also, I recommend ordering a size up as they run a bit small.

                      Needs design improvements

                      • High quality fabric
                      • The Right Idea

                      • Bad Design
                      • Poor Fit

                      Best Uses

                        The idea of a short-shaped bikini bottom is right on, but the execution / design didn't turn out right. I am always on the look out for this type of bathing suite bottom, but I am returning them and choosing the Twist Front Bikini instead as the fit of the bikini is actually flattering. There is also something about how much fabric is on the front and where i lands on one's leg that makes the design not work well for big thighs.

                        Another frustrating part was the lack of elastic around the leg holes to help them stay down and tucked under my bottom. They are loose around the legs and even sizing down would not change the fact that they feel like they are too revealing around the lower bottom area. They are in fact very short shorts and not bathing suite bottoms. They may have worked if I was slender and less pear-shaped.

                            These swim shorts are so cute. I ordered two sizes - I didn't want any bulges at the top - and found them to be true to size . Depending on your shape you could even go a size down. I haven't gone in the water yet, so hopefully they'll be tight enough once they get wet! The green polka dot fabric is a nice color twist on a classic print. Though a little less bright than it appears on the website. Like some other reviewers said, they are relatively low cut in the front - that works for me - and the greater coverage in the back is just right. I really like the wide waistband and no elastic at the leg opening (ie) no pulling in / bulging at the edges! I'm 5'10" - 145lbs, the size 8 fit great.

                                I don't have a perfectly flat stomach but typically feel it looks fine exposed in a two piece. The bottoms were cut in such a way though that they created a muffin top that's not usually there in my skimpier suit bottoms. Something about the way the colored band at the top was fitted. I wouldn't recommend these if you carry any extra weight in your stomach. Just for reference I'm 5'9 and 148 lbs and size 8 fit perfectly.

                                    I planned to wear these with the Sorrento bikini top (nice to be able to mix and match.) It was just too low rise for me. Interesting because I didn't feel like the shorts for the Hoop Detail suit were as low. I kept the hoop detail set instead of Sorrento.
