I absolutely love these bottoms. They are super cheeky (they fit me more like a thong) but really flattering, especially with the ties. Since there is enough fabric in front and back, it doesn't feel like a minimalist suit, despite the cheekiness. It's also really soft and comfortable. I am a size 4/6 in pants normally, and for most brands I buy a M in underwear or swimsuits. However, I followed the size chart here and am glad I did because they hug my hips perfectly and since the ties are adjustable I have it a little looser to account for my booty. Highly recommend these!
