Women's AquaTerra Abstract Floral Bikini Bottom
Great swim bottoms
Great bottoms for swim team practice and surfing. My daughter does both so she needs a swim suit that stays on and stays in place. Great quality and fits true to size.

comfortable and flattering
laying flat, this piece looked big. However, once I put it on, it fit like a glove. I swan for 30 min the first time I wore it and it didn't move an inch. Definitely a keeper.

Cute bottom, but runs small
Overall, these are cute bottoms, especially with the tie waist. That said, they run quite small. I started with a 4, but wanted more rear coverage, so replaced them with a 6. It fits better, but now the waist is too ample. The tie at the waist is purely decorative, and doesn't help cinch. When I lie down, the waist gapes a bit at the front, so I have to be mindful that it's not revealing anything. Basically, to get sufficient coverage through the hips, you have to go up in size in the waist. I have a very lean, athletic build, so unfortunately, this issue isn't uncommon for me, regardless of brand.

a little on the small side
I bought 2 Lands End suits this year. This bottom was significantly smaller than the other. I had to order one size up.

I had to return these because they do not fit right
I ordered a size 10, which is one size larger than I would normally wear, but they still did not have enough coverage in the rear. I expected them to fit a little better since this is an athletic style of swimsuit that should be able to "move with you" without inching up. I like the drawstring waist, but anyone who has curves should be aware that these bottoms may not have the coverage they expect from a sport swimsuit.

I will preface this review with the fact that I've not been in a bikini in 20 years.
It's a bikini bottom. and it fits. The size is fairly true but heads tower the smaller size of a 10 so if you're a generous 10, I strongly suggest you swallow your pride and go up a size. (I'm debating it but don't know if LE has it any longer in the print I picked). I've not swum/swimmed in it yet so I can't say whether it stayed on, was easy to get off for a tryst or rode up and gave a wedgie, but when I tried it on and walked down the hall and back, it stayed in place.

Sporty with medium coverage
I followed the size chart, and the fit (size 2) is great. I got out my measuring tape and measured my hips to be sure as I am large in the hips compared to the rest of my small (114 lb) body. I normally go for swim bottoms with more booty coverage, but I felt like these were still enough for me. I think they will work well for playing with my two toddlers at the pool and on the beach.
