LOVE these bottoms. Number one thing I love is that they are so comfortable and stay in place no matter what you are doing in the water. I could be playing beach volleyball, swimming laps, jumping in the ocean, or just laying on the sand, I don't have to worry about adjusting them. They don't rub weird, fall down, or come untied like my other suits. Also love the pattern, I was hesitant on the design at first but ended up getting the Summer Fields color and it is so much more classy than the pictures do justice for. The ruching on the butt adds a subtle detail that really separates this from other suits. Overall would HIGHLY recommend this product! I am 5'4", 140 lbs and got a large that fits perfectly.
