The shape is so so good! They are *actually* high waisted (go up to your waistline) which is SO hard to find. If you hate classic low-rise bikini bottoms, I would highly recommend these for a more flattering fit! They have soft seams too so they don’t make your hip fat bulge out like other bathing suits. They’re just the right amount of cheeky. Great option for people who struggle with awkward bikini bulges!
