Without actual measurements provided, I was having a hard time determining sizes. I emailed asking about comparable brand sizes (being from the US, knowing I couldn’t return items affordably), but none could be provided. I provided my sizes, and some guesses were provided by staff, but they contrasted dramatically from some of the examples provided on their site. I took the risk anyway (erring on the side of too big, which could at least be tailored if needed).
For all other US clients…I am usually a XL or L bottom, depending on how cheeky they are (go to brands are body glove, pakaloha, target), and I ordered a 14. (I am a US 6 or 8 in most pants and. M in most leggings, including Waterlust). These bottoms pretty much fit perfectly, though I haven’t worn them in the water yet. I hope this helps someone who was looking for comparable sizing like I was!
I love the pattern! Keep in mind, they are fully reversible (flip side is a nice maroon color), so you end up with two suits in one.
Even prettier in person than it is on photos! Secure, doesn't slip, doesn't chafe and very comfortable to wear for open water swimming. Sizing is accurate too, got a size 10 and didn't need to exchange or return.
Extremely comfortable and flattering bottoms. I’m not usually one to wear such a skimpy cut bikini bottom, but this particular style is super flattering. The quality of the bathers is extremely nice; from the double lining to the ruching at the back. It stops you looking like you have a saggy bottom when they are wet. Plus they are reversible, double win!!
