Anything but basic.

Cute and versatile!

    (This is Tyson’s wife) These bottoms are exactly what I needed them to be. They fit well across the booty without giving too much away, and the two tone allows them to match with multiple swim tops.

    Well. I wanted to love this suit so badly because it seemed to fit perfectly and the cut was super flattering in the front. But alas, the moment the suit got wet and I bent over, my entire butt was exposed. Might as well have been a thong. I am 5'1, 107 lbs, have an hour glass/athletic figure, wear an Medium in the Patagonia panties (the briefs fit perfectly for full coverage of the bum as a medium), ordered the suit bottoms in a medium, and one bend over and the suit was gone! The fabric was super nice and soft, but unfortunately, I need a little more coverage on this booty. True to size, but not enough fabric on the butt. Waist and front fit great.

    Best cut ever!

    I absolutely love the cut of these. Full coverage in the front, and just enough cheek in the back. The material is very high quality and should last a long time. Be warned though that it runs small. I am petite and usually wear an XS or a S, but I had to size up and get a Medium in both the bottoms and the reversible seaglass top. The small cinched me pretty tight and caused some bulging around the edges which I do not like to I tried the Medium and it worked much better. This probably has more to do with body type than anything, so if you have curves you may want to consider sizing up!

    Oh yeah!!

    I love these bottoms! The fabric is EVERYTHING!! So comfortable! They're not extremely cheeky but not full coverage - they're a good middle ground! Also way nice that they're reversible! HOLLA!!

    As per usual, the fit here on Patagonia is perfect. Not too cheeky, not too "Mom Jeans."
    The fabric is really thick and offers a truly comfortable fit. I am 5'3" with average hips and booty and the size small fits nicely.

    I believe Patagonia designed this suit with surfing in mind, it does stay in place better than most suits. I like not having to constantly dig myself out of wedgie land, so that's a design well-executed.

    This suit achieves a great mix between sporty, sexy, and functional. I'm pretty picky about my swimsuits. I've been using L-Space suits for the past few years, but they break down and wear out pretty quickly. This Patagonia suit is holding up much better. It's a better value for your money as it will certainly last longer than my L-space suits' measly 1 summer lifespan.

    Highly recommend!

    Bought for my friend, she loves the colors and the reversible options as well as the style. She's petite but thinks these run a bit small. Not a lot of coverage on the back. The fabric has a nice give and feels very durable. She highly recommends.
