Women's SwimMates Mid Rise Swimsuit Bottom
Mid rise suit is comfortable for swimming. Had to mix match for best pricing.

Edges are tight
I have a few pairs of LE bikini bottoms in size 8. I love them. Apparently they are not "mid-rise" and are a lower cut...I didn't realize this before I ordered. This mid-rise pair technically fit, but dug in around my legs and around my waist and were not comfortable and definitely not flattering and I need all the flattery I can get. I think Lands' End is one of the better place to buy suits if you want coverage but not too much coverage, and if you need support on top, but something is different in this year's patterns - seems like they don't fit the same as previous ones. I also think LE could do a better job of marking which shape/cut each pair of bottoms is...specifically name them or list the # of inches of rise so they are easier to tell apart...it is already hard to match things up if you're mixing and matching colors on here, but with the sizes/shapes being different for different bottoms it makes it even harder.

perfect go to
I ordered these in 2 colors and wish I could get them all! Fit is great- order the jeans size you most normally wear- no muffin top, coverage without TOO much coverage, and they stay put. Great bikini bottom for those of us in our late 30s... still sassy and cute cut, but modest at the same time.

chintzy fabric, not a fan of the stitching
This was my first swimmates attempt. The fabric is not as nice as beach living collection, and I did not like the large stiching. The piece just did not feel as nice as other LE suits I've had in the past.
Size 2 was a little small in the rump, I'm 5'4 and 111 lbs.
Returning since I did not keep the matching top and didn't like the bottoms anyway.

mid rise swimsuit
Land's end for me always fits true to size. These are my favorite swim bottoms and love that they have so many options for colors and tops to go with.

Great basic bottom
I got this to match the Swimmates Dot Print Bandeau Bikini Swimsuit Top. My hip measures at 38 inches, and I ordered the size 4. It fits quite well and does not pinch my waist area. The material is thick and feels solid. Overall it's a great buy!

too small in the butt
I tried these because lots of reviews said they liked the fit better than the high-rise. I did like that they didn't push me out (aka muffin top), but they were just too small in the butt! I ordered and sz 2 and 4 just to see which fit better (I'm about 5'4" and about 118 lbs.), and neither did...I was very disappointed and will be returning both sizes.

comfortable and modest
I'm really loving these bottoms. I ordered a few different styles and ended up keeping these and the polka dot bikini. The rise on either pair is perfect with a long tankini top or my new favorite henley layer. I had previously believed that my belly made a lower rise a no-go, but this was a perfect compromise of style, comfort, and modesty. I'm liking the mix and match options it opens up. My only small complaint is that the back gets a little loose-feeling in the water, though upon closer investigation I truly think that's just the feeling and not the appearance.
