I've had these bottoms before and loved them until they were basically rags. They had perfect coverage and still stayed on while playing/surfing in the ocean. Decided it was time to finally get some more, but the sizing seems smaller. I'm normally a S but sized up to a M, yet they are still cut a bit too low. I have a hard time keeping the more private sections covered--you get the backside covered, only to dip too low in the front, and vice versa. They also don't seem to stay on quite as well when in waves. Overall, still great quality, the cut is just a bit too low for my proportions.
