together with the bali top this is my new favorite suit! I was surprised that a lower cut bottom looked better on me than something higher, but it does because it doesn't cut right across my widest belly part. the sides are totally adjustable, so I can loosen them when I'm hanging out, or synch down tight when I want to get more active in the water. And I think the tie sides are really flattering but also help camoflage the hips. I LOVE it together with my Bali top!!
This bottom is flattering and at the same time has good coverage.
Decent bottom coverage, but when trying it on I didn't notice the heavy-gauge rubber in the binding, so it didn't seem like it would have much more staying power than other bikini bottoms, (but thats not a wave-tested comment). The ties on the hip allow for a custom fit, but give it a young look. I still would have kept it if the coordinating Bali top wasn't so unflattering, but I had to return the bottom with the top.
