Women's Beach Living High Rise Swimsuit Bottom with Tummy Control
Love, love, love these bottoms!
Last year I ordered these bottoms & loved how they fit & I ordered a second color this year! This year I have lost weight & I have found these fit pretty true to size. I am on the border of a size 10-12 in all pants & I ordered a size 12. They fit great and because of the tummy control I sized up instead of down when picking my size. The tummy control gives great support & smooths out any bulges. If it were tighter (sized down) it might give my waist a little too much indentation at the top (flab rolling over) but by sizing up it doesn't cut in too much & gives a nice smooth appearance. These have a lining inside them that is the control fabric giving extra coverage too! These sit just below the navel & look cute w/ a bikini top while giving full coverage to my behind! I have an abdominal scar going up/down below my navel & every suit I've ever worn you can see the indentation of my scar. Because of the control & extra lining it smooths out the scar making my tummy appear fit & flat! I LOVE THESE!

I had to order the Tummy Control bottoms instead of the regular fit. I ordered my regular size. It fit fine, but I didn't care for the tightness/control. I was glad that it didn't dig in like I thought it might. I did like that it had a higher rise than the other bottoms in the SwimMates collection. While I was at the beach, I chose to wear the bikini bottoms with the coverup camisole because that bottom was less tight and felt more comfortable. I think that the regular control would have been better, but these worked fine as well.

Great fit...one tiny suggestion...
These bottoms are a great fit, so great that this is my second pair. The waistband is wide, thus the "slimming" effect. My only suggestion would be that the elastic directly within the waistband be a bit wider creating a true slimming and more comfy slimming waistband. Otherwise...great fit comfy and sturdy!

Flattering bikini bottoms!
I love these bottoms-I got in navy and the coral/reddish color-Both are very versatile with other tops. The tummy control works well and is just the right amount of "tightness" so as not to cause a roll. Lord knows I don't need that! I wear a size 8 pants but ordered a size 10 for these. I tend to always order up for bathing suits.

Not what I was expecting
I am usually a size 24 in most everything that I wear (Lands End, and other sites/stores). I ordered these in a 26W and am glad that I did. They fit well, cover my bottom, and are not too tight in the leg opening. However, I am going to return these bottoms. Although they are not as high as I would have liked them to be, I just did not see too much tummy control. Now, I understand that I am a plus size woman, and that these weren't going to be a "miracle suit," but I was expecting a bit more control for the price. I also have a feeling that although dry they fit well, once wet, they would be too big, and I would have to constantly be pulling them up. The only thing I would consider keeping these for is as "shaper" type brief under skirts/dresses. These might work best for someone, size 22W and under.. or for those who do not carry a lot of weight around the middle.

Great fit and nice quality
Bottoms are true to size. I usually go up one size in swim bottoms, but needed to go to my normal size. There is no bunching in the rear and they don't ride up. The quality is good and I'm not seeing any fading yet. Upset that other colors are already out of stock. We still have a lot of summer left.

Best swimsuit bottoms ever!
When you are over 50 you like a bottom that covers, at least I do! These are perfect! I wear a size 6 so normally bottoms in that size are skimpy. However, I do have problems with LandsEnd tops. I like a bra-type swim top and I need a 34A (pushup) and those are impossible to find at LandsEnd.
