I love these bottoms! I am very glad that I got the semi cheeky version because I am a little more bikini conservative. I got a size M and I normally wear size 26/4 pants but with my bum, I probably could have sized up to a large. I also have a long torso so they sit lower on my hips than I am normally used to, but I am still in love with how they look. I have always had some body image issues in swimsuits, especially bottoms, so I love not only how adjustable the corset detail is, but how great they make my bum look!
