Rated 4 out of 5 by snowyowl12 slightly tight elastic around legs/stomach, but not a dealbreaker
I was really heistant about buying these due to the numerous reviews about overly tight leg elastics. I had bought some other LE bottoms in the past that had this problem and I ended up returning them because it was BAD.
I took a chance on these and I'm pleased to report that although the elastics are a bit snugger than I would prefer, its not enough to be a dealbreaker. They're not cutting into my skin so much that they are creating awful bumps and lumps.
I have had a hard time finding plain black midrise bottoms this late in the season - tried all the usual stores but everything seems to be cut super low rise for teens. These are just the right rise. The backside goes up a few inches higher than I'd like but since i'm wearing a tankini top with it it doesn't matter.
ALso I was quite shocked to see that I was able to comfortably fit into a 12. Normally with swimsuits I have to go up a few sizes - I'm a size 10 in street clothes. If this helps anyone i'm 5'11, 160lbs, most weight is in my middle/waist.
Hope this helps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cg880 Great fit- just what I needed
Fit great and replaced my old pair, which had worn out. A great, basic suit bottom to go with my suit tops.

Nice quality, I ordered the paisley print and it is bright and very cute! The bottoms stay put which I like since I am normally in and out of the water at the beach with my family. I like these so much I also ordered them in the turquoise color. Very happy with the product and price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JMDinjersey Not Great
I am 5'10" and 138 pounds, and my normal size 6 fits; however, the fit is unattractive; the seams are narrow all around (leg openings and waist), causing the banding to look like its cutting in to the skin. A wider seam would have provided a more attractive transition between skin and suit. The quality is a bit lacking in that the bottom is not fully lined which probably contributes to the poor fit. Not in keeping with the fit and quality of other LE bottoms. I have since purchased the Coastal Spirit Mid Waist Bikini bottom and am satisfied with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nancy789 Have a couple of the black and the deep sea blue bottoms for various LandsEnd swim tops
The fit is perfect, I would say it runs true to size.

Great fitting bottoms. They don't ride up and fit great.

Fit nice, except the skinny elastic band at the top creates a muffin top for all except the super skinny.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kaitiem Too small!
I've ordered Land's Ends swimsuits for years and always take a 12. I even bought the swim mini this year in a 12 and it fits perfectly. This suit has such tight elastic that it bulges. I tried the 14 and had the same problem. Now I'm trying a 16 in hopes that it will finally work with my tankini top without creating rolls all over!

Rated 4 out of 5 by PrizePig works for me
I ordered this bottom in size 6 and 8. I wear a size 4 or XS in dresses, shorts, shirts, jeans. The 6 was tight creating the familiar bulge aka muffin top. 8 was a better fit/look. SO be sure to order up when purchasing.
