    I wanted to keep these so bad because they are really cute.  Unfortunately they are already too see through when they aren't even wet!  Better lining would make these a winner!

    These are very thin lycra, run big and get even bigger when wet. I ordered a small and it falls off me when they are wet. I usually wear a small (26 in denim). They are cute and I do like the look.

    A really comfortable swim short. I originally bought it for a triathlon and I'm not sure I'll keep it for that because I think it might bunch under bike shorts...but it's so cute and I love that the waistband is sliming and comfy during activities that I'll keep it for training, kayaking, diving and sailing.

  • 7/24/2013 I really like this bottom!

    rating star By meadowlark5

    I ordered these bottoms to give me a little more coverage than a regular bikini bottom. Well the extra coverage is just a little more. They are very low rise which I wish they weren't that low but I wear the bottom with a tankini top so it works out fine. The back gives coverage but you will still show some cheek but certainly not more than a regular bikini bottom. Pretty much what I was going for - a bit more coverage without looking matronly. The material is thick and substantial.  I did follow other reviewers and ordered a size up. I usually wear a medium bottom but ordered the large and it fits perfect - not tight and not loose either. I ordered another pair in a different color. Hopefully Body Glove will bring these back next summer in different colors.

    I love those swim shorts because they hide part of the cellulite!

  • 4/5/2013 cute but cheeky

    rating star By WSPixie

    Really cute and comfortable. If you have a butt at all, these are going to fit a little cheeky (less coverage in the back).
