I'm very happy with these bottoms. I got the top and bottom together. I'm a 39, 30, 42, so very pear-shaped. I got a large in the top and an XL in the bottom. They look identical to the pictures, and like the description says, offer better coverage than last year's bottoms and actually do cover the bellybutton. I am pretty tall though, about 5'9", so I would be happier if they were a tiny bit higher cut, especially in the back as I either have to pull them up and they cut into my bum or make a U shape in the back at the waistline. They are also great in the water, no stretching or color bleeding so far. I've worn them three times so far and have been stopped and complemented every time!
