"for those of you with an itty bitty waist and a round thang, these may not work. i typically wear a S in swimsuits.
in a M, i found the waistband too loose, but the leg elastic was ok (cut a bit into my butt, but that always happens to me). it showed a little bit of crack. i tried the L and the leg elastic was better, but the waistband was definitely too big. i tried the S and the waistband was fine, but then my butt looked like an upside down muffintop. it showed a lot of crack.
anyway i bought all 3 sizes because i know my lower body is a pain and none of them fit just right, so all will have to go back. :("

Review 2 for Colorblock Zipper Bottoms
Location:Jacksonville Beach Florida
"After reading the other reviews, i was a little worried about how this would fit, but its perfect!!! Yes the top is a little large (i wear a 34c/d) but the medium fits perfect! the bottoms do run a tinsy bit small,so if you have a bit of a larger bottom, then you need to go up a size... the bottoms are VERY low, but it works well with most body types! I got a medium in both and I'm more of an hourglass shape (I wear a 2/ 4 in free people pants/ shorts etc), so the mediums actually worked great! Its a very flattering suit especially if you want to elongate your torso! DO IT!"

Review 3 for Colorblock Zipper Bottoms
WAY too low
"this is SO cute. I bought the whole matching suit and am pleased with the top (M fit perfect (though an eency bit loose), and the bottoms are VERY cute. I got a M as well, and the legs fit VERY well, considering my body type. 36-27-38 measurements, big butt, big thighs, big boobs, timy waist and i'm 5'4". The waist line also fit very well, no squeezing or anything. The biggest problem came with the rise: it was SO low, it JUST reached the top of my crack. it was fine standing, but i wouldn't even be able to bend over, let alone get wet and heavy. The front was also less-than-flattering. Let's just say, you've better be freshly waxed. And while the bands fit very well, the seat ended up being way too baggy. have to return, unfortunately, esp. considering i want to keep the matching top"

Review 4 for Colorblock Zipper Bottoms
Back is short, short, short!
"Usually, I have trouble finding swimsuit bottoms that are small enough in the back. This was definitely not the case. I am normally a small, but I heard that FP swim runs small so I got a medium. it was a little loose everywhere implying that I would need another size, but the back is so short. I have a really small butt, and this barely covered it."
