FANTASTIC FIT... Slightly off on the color from the pictures...

Everything Albion Fit stands for was TRUE for this purchase: Amazing quality, fit perfectly, full coverage, and super cute and trendy swimwear!

(I am 5’4”, 115 lbs, size 2-4 in pants and bought a size small in these bottoms.)

I bought these bottoms, because I had matched them with a swim top from another company, but when I received them, I realized the inside of the flower was more purple than what is seen in the photos. It is really no big deal, seeing as most people are not trying to match swimsuits with the inside color of a flower, but in this case, that was the color I needed to go with the swim top I have. All in all, I still believe Albion Fit would be the way to go, if looking for modest swim wear that is also fashionable and GREAT quality! But if you are going to match, stick with their own brand collections that they have intended for mixing and matching.

Awesome bottoms

These bottoms are adorable! The waist is higher than other high-waisted bottoms I have, but still look good. I have a short torso and also purchased the striped top these bottoms are pictured with. The tow pieces together on my frame look like a one piece, but I am so happy with the fit. Also very well made.

Beautiful fabric, but didn't fit well

I like the design and the fabric. They seem well made, but they just weren't flattering on me. They came well above my belly button, and the ruching didn't do anything for me.

Love these!

I’m 5’9 and have a hard time finding a swim suit that will cover my belly button with such a long torso. This is perfect! It can actually sit above or below the belly button and it holds everything in! I can finally say I’m excited to go swimming in my post-partum body because I feel confident, everything stays where it’s supposed to, and I still look feminine!


Very pretty. Comes above belly button which I like, a little low thigh which isn’t as flattering on butt/legs. But overall good purchase!
