I'm pear shaped and have trouble finding bottoms that fit my hips/butt while also fitting my waist (27 inch waist and 38 inch hips). The mediums in these work really well for me. I can jump/dive and generally be active without worrying about them moving around and they aren't digging into my body anywhere and there's no weird extra fabric/diaper-situation in the back when they're wet. They're simple enough to go with almost any top but the fit and quality make them stand out from any of the other, cheaper, options I've tried over the years. I'm planning on keeping these for years.
Matte Black Hipster Bottoms
These are perfect for mix-matching with all of my Albion tops! I love these bottoms because of the coverage on the front and back-something most bathing suit companies throw out of the window. I honestly think everyone should have a pair of these!
I feel I'm a bit between sizes with the shape of my butt and desired coverage. I ordered a medium because smalls weren't available, but normally wear a size medium in swim bottoms with the hopes of showing less cheek. For context, I'm 124 lbs and carry most of my weight in the booty. The ones I received fit decent, although a bit bigger than expected, and also don't consider it "full coverage" but it works. I'm keeping them and feel they are "family" appropriate for days on the boat with family.
Excellent fit and quality. TTS. I'm 5'8" and 116lbs, size 25/26 jeans. I bought the XS and love how they fit, look, and feel. No gaping or extra material in the back.
