I am 5'3", 120 lbs. These bottoms are great. Super flattering for curves. No tight lines digging into the rear. Tie sides celebrate curves instead of digging in. Not much coverage, but that is what is flattering!

These are small which is not a problem for little butts, but the see through factor just doesn't work at all no matter what your size.

I'm very happy with this piece. I wear size 8-10 and have a small butt and narrow hips and the large fit me perfectly. I can see how these bottoms would not be enough coverage for a more voluptuous woman because they are cut very low. They don't sit on your hips, they sit below your hips.

I love Body Glove Suits, my go to for basics, stays on, very bottom flattering and I always get compliments. Some black suits can look cheap this is not the case.

I love Zappos because of their no hassle service. I like the fact that you can view the body dimensions of several models. I just wish you could see the product you want on a model close to your size. I ended up buying two sizes and returning the one that didn't fit. It was incredibly easy to return and I was credited my money promptly. I will continue to shop at Zappos for a long time because of their great service and free shipping for purchases and returns.

I love, love, love these bottoms! I normally wear between a 0-2 in most bottoms, so I bought them in an XS, and they fit perfectly. The adjustable sides are a nice feature for both the design and functionality, and although the front is low cut, you get decent coverage in the back. I just can't wait for winter to end, so I can get cracking on my tan! I can't really comment on how they look once they are wet, because I haven't had an opportunity to take them for a dip, but based on others comments, they supposedly do not turn 'see through.' If you are in search of white bikini bottoms, you will find that the prices can be kind of steep. Not this pair and they are very reasonable! I also bought the matching Body Glove Smoothies Baby love top to go with it.

These are great, simple swim bottoms. I bought them to go with the Smoothies Solo Adjustable Underwire top, and they are great together. The bottoms look terrific, especially good if you are not sure of your size/their sizing; with the ties, you can adjust your fit as you need. I am currently a dress size 18-20 (makes me cry to type that!), and I bought the XL and they are fine, flattering, a little low in the back perhaps, but I personally love them. My only complaint is I do not really like most of the colors offered, but black works with anything so that is what I got.

Cute bottom! Sits low on the hips but not too low. The ties give it a flirty feel but don\'t dig in the way some string bikini bottoms do.

These are pretty much just like how they appear. The material seems sturdy. Tie sides are always nice so that you can adjust how tight the fit is - no two sets of "cheeks" because the elastic is too tight.

Super cute and I like that the side ties allow for adjusting so it's not digging into your sides - it's a comfortable fit!

These bottoms fit great! They cover enough in the back for me to be comfortable, and they don't slip around or ride up like so many other swimsuits I have tried! Highly recommend this suit, and anything by Body Glove. Their swimsuits fit amazingly well. If you are trying to choose between Body Glove and a different brand, choose this one!

Great fit and super cute. True to size. They are very low rise, so if that\'s not what you\'re looking for I wouldn\'t get them.

Fits like a glove! I love this bottom. I bought this on a total whim, knowing I would have to return it... not even! Best bathing suit ever! Fits perfectly (XS for me), and the feel of the fabric is super soft and stretchy. Can't wait to wear it to the pool.

I purchased the Body Glove tie side bathing suit for a trip next year. I was skeptical at first to order online. I can’t believe how well this suit fits! I wear a size 6 on the bottom and this fits perfectly! The top I ordered was a large and it fits perfectly as well! Well made product, true to size, and I recommend Body Glove to other shoppers.

The bottoms are comfortable, fit really well and don\'t hold weird pockets of air in the rear. I got the matching criss-cross bikini top which works really well for me because I have a herniated disc in my neck and it doesn\'t pull on my neck the way halter tops do.

I wear a size 8-10 and am curvy. I was really hoping these would fit and they almost did (I ordered a large). They sat just a little too low for me (large hips) but I think would work well on a smaller frame. If they had an XL I would probably order it.

The charcoal color is simple and sophisticated. It is easily paired with black or navy. I think I tried every Body Glove bottom to match my Body Glove Smoothies Baby Love Triangle Top, and this was the winner. The ties are cute, but with an ample backside, you will need to be careful about the proportion of pulling it up or down in the back without showing too much skin. I am not too crazy about the heart charm hardware in the front, but it looks like a swift pull of a seam ripper can remove it without issue.

Really cute bottoms. Probably wouldn't work on someone with a larger bottom though, as it only barely covered mine (and I've got pancake syndrome)!

Cute bottoms, love the fabric and color, but as someone else mentioned they are super low rise. I normally wear lower rise bottoms, but these barely cover anything. They're my size, so a bigger size will just be baggy and not cover more. Too bad they have to go back, I liked the way they looked in the product picture.

DON'T BUY WHITE! I actually preferred the cut and fit of the smoothies bikini bottom but BOTH are not fit for the public in white. I tested them out and they are super see-through when wet... you see EVERYTHING.

I ordered this in XL and it was very very tiny; I think it is an XL, but for a junior. I am going to see if they have any larger bottoms, but as of now, I have to return it. I am a size 12-14 - this was not.

Nice bathing suit at a good price. Not much coverage, but probably not too different from a lot of other options out there. Great color selection, too.

These bottoms have full coverage in the back and give the look of the side tie bikini with a little more fabric. The material and quality is awesome. I would say that the bottoms are very low cut. Knowing this, I ordered a size up. I am a size 4 and ordered a M and it is just big enough that I have to adjust it some throughout my beach trip to make sure I don't show any heiney cleavage. Other than that, it is a perfect bottom.

I'm size 4/5-ish, I have the red, super hot color, rides a bit low. The quality has not stood up to what I thought a Body Glove should, but I've been know to be hard on clothes. The matching triangle top I got with it is in tatters. I'll wear the bottoms till they do the same.
