Women's Beach Living Ultra High Rise Swimsuit Bottom with Tummy Control
What high rise?
Calling this bottom "ultra high rise" is the exaggeration or misnomer of the year. It's a super standard rise in front, and in the back a bottom that doesn't "hug," (poor tailoring and cheap material?) therefore it "rides up" your butt, especially if you have a little booty. I'm returning it.

I got these swim bottoms to try to smooth out my tummy... they work GREAT! Also, because they come up so high (right under my bust) I feel covered like Im wearing a 1 piece but with the loose fit of a tank swim top! Also, another advantage to them coming so high up, there is no elastic line to be seen!

so sad it disappointed me
I have been using LE's Tugless tank with tummy control swim suits for the past 4 years and loved it. I was hoping this High Rise bottom would be of the same fit and quality. It was disappointing that it bunches on the tummy area and didn't offer the same support or fit Sad to have to return it.
With the swim suit I had to order a size up, when I ordered the same size this "bottom" was too big. The LE sizes are not the same with different products!

Was baggy at my normal size, perhaps I needed a petite because was also so high it hit above my rib cage. Had to return. Good quality though

baggy bum - returned
After reading the reviews about the baggie bum, I ordered this bottom in two sizes. The bum was baggy on both and the bagginess extended to the leg hole. I didn't care for the slightly high cut leg. I also ordered the high rise and found the legs more to my liking and the rise was high enough that I didn't need this ultra high rise. Unfortunately, the bum was baggy on that style as well, so all bottoms were returned.

Too long for me
The color, quality and fabric were all excellent. I would say the sizing is accurate although they feel tight due to the tummy control. However, the fit wasn't good for me. I'm only 5 feet 2 inches tall and the bottoms went up too high to be comfortable. I also felt that I would be uncomfortable with that much tightness around my middle. For me the swimsuit bottoms without the tummy control are a much better fit. When I go to the beach I like to be able to relax and not have to pull and tug on a swimsuit to be comfortable.

Wow! These bathing suit bottoms are amazing!
Loved these high rise tummy control bathing suit bottoms. They slimmed me down and really gave me a nice shape under the dresskini. Very surprised they were also very comfortable to wear all day at the lake. Never once did they roll down or pinch. Highly recommend these if you need a little help to flatten your tummy.

Too High for Short Waisted Person
I'm short and short waisted. The top of the garment came up too high. Like the idea of this bottom. Too bad it just didn't work for me!

All About Control
After packing on some weight with two pregnancies and then thinking it since I was petite, I was hiding it well...I realized I wasn't. I recently lost a good amount of weight but all the exercise in the world is not going to give me the stomach I had in my 20's. I tried to be comfortable with a bikini cut bottom...but it just wasn't going to cover my belly the way I needed, even with a tankini style top. This bottom came to the rescue! It smooths all the lumps and bumps out and keeps you covered when you are chasing two kids around the pool or beach. I opted to pair it with a sexier tankini just to not feel so dowdy. As far as fit...if you have ever wore or tried on a certain brand that rhymes with thanx...then this fits just like that! I like the fact that it comes all the way up, truly providing a smooth look.

These are fabulous under a tankini because nothing shows if the tank drifts up in the water, and it smooths out any potential muffin-top. Modest and secure. It looks really strange until you get the tankini top over it, but then it looks just like regular bikini bottoms, except without the bulges! It stays put quite well, although I do occasionally have to hitch it up just a little. That could be because I need a half size smaller. Excellent product. I'd love to see it in some of the more popular colors!
