Women's SwimMates Mid Rise Swimsuit Bottom
Great fit & style!
Bought this bottom as an alternative to the swim skirt I already had in same color. Usually I don't like these types of bikini bottoms but these fit FANTASTIC! No digging into my legs or gut creating a "muffin top" look. Very comfortable and look great!

Comfortable swimsuit bottom!
I ordered the swimsuit bottom in Windsor Wine. The swimsuit bottom fit me perfect, is a pretty color, and comfortable to wear. I ordered the swimsuit bottom and matching SwimMates orchid floral swim skirt after ordering the bikini top and swim tee. This is the first time I have ordered the coordinating layers and like them all. Thank you, Lands End!

Nice fit, but not enough tummy coverage
I'm usually a 12/14 and I ordered the size 14. It fits well; true to size. Nice modest cut at the legs and nice backside coverage. But....it doesn't offer enough tummy coverage for me. I should have looked closer at the photo and description. The Seashsore color works perfectly with the White Tahiti Paisley print top I purchased to go with it.

Very nice fit.
These fit true to size and are comfortable. It is hard to find bottoms that fit hips and thighs that are on the larger side of the size and these fit well.

Liked the fit
I ordered these in a size 4 (my measurements are bust 36, waist 28.5, hip 38) and they fit great. Some of my swim skirts are in a size 2, but I ordered these is a size 4 just to make sure they weren't too tight. They did not dig into my skin, they were cute, and best of all provided a moderate amount of coverage. I did return them, due to returning the top, but would not hesitate to order them again.

not staying in place
These didn't seem to stay up. It could have been because the size I ordered was too big. While I prefer the thicker waistband to ensure they stay up while swimming, it didn't seem these would stay up long.

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.
