Women's SwimMates Solid Bikini Bottom
Kind of a strange fit
I ordered both this bottom and the mid-rise bottom because I wasn't sure of the fit I wanted. Honestly, there was very little difference; this one was a little bit lower in front. I wouldn't have called it a bikini, necessarily. It was still very full, and actually seemed to fit larger than the mid-rise bottom did. I measured a size 12, so I ordered a 10 and a 12, and the 10 was still too big to be comfortable. I never wore it in the water, but it didn't feel secure even when dry and I didn't want to risk it being wet and falling off. I'll return this one.

A Little Too Full Coverage
There's a fine line between too little coverage and too much coverage with swim suit bottoms. The front of these bottoms looks nice but there's a little too much coverage in the back, which I feel actually makes my backside look bigger.

Fits great! Good color!
I got these bottoms in yellow to go with my Landsend navy polka dot tankini. They fit great, and I love the color combination. The previous bottoms I had were also from Landsend, and I have really liked them so I have pretty high expectations for these as well.

I love this bottom and will definitely keep buying this style. It is modest but not something my grandma would have worn. Thanks Land's End!

Good fit, but a bit looser in water
This is a good fitting bottom. A few other reviewers mentioned that the bottom becomes a bit looser in water, and this is true, however it still stays on and never left me feeling uncomfortable.

I bought this as part of the bikini set with the halter top. It's well made of good quality fabric but I would consider myself to be a 'big' size 4 at the moment so I ordered the 4 thinking that they would either fit or be a bit on the small size. I'm a dive instructor so I normally lose weight once the season gets busier so thought these would be functional for work but unfortunately they are really big!! When I tried them on they were a bit on the big size but I didn't notice too much and thought they would be fine. Once they got wet, however, they stretched and became really flappy - very unflattering. I would describe them as 'full coverage' bikini briefs so in no way sexy or revealing. Overall, these may be suitable for someone who wishes to cover all but just remember they run very large.

Cute and comfy bottoms!
I paired these bottoms in black with the Beach Halter Solid Tankini Top and they worked out great! Very comfortable, held snug in the water while swimming and dried quick while on the beach.

Smooth fit, no muffin top
I'm 5'10, 150 lbs, and have a difficult time finding swim bottoms that do not create a muffin top, BUT these bottoms are great - no muffin top!!! The fit is snug enough to be able to chase my 5 yr. old in and out of the water and to lay in the sun. I read other reviews that stated the bottoms would not stay up, but for me this is not true for my use. I do not, however, dive or do water sports in these bottoms. I wear these bottoms to look good and feel comfortable in a bathing suit : )

Nice fit, but runs big!
I purchased these in store after being disappointed with the mid rise bikini bottoms. I had to size down in these. I usually wear a 4 bottom, but a 2 in this style fit just like the 4's usually do. I like the slim stitch seaming of these too. Very happy with my purchase!

Not an active swim bottom
This is not a bikini bottom to actually move around in especially to swim because it would come straight down. There is no elastic tightness around the hip to hold it up! Even a smaller size (ordered size 4) would not compensate for that so will try a different brand. Basically if you want something to just lay around beside the pool this would work.
