Comfortable and flattering!

I am a size XL/14-16/33inch, 5’3” 190lbs and bought the XL high waist bottom. I have been looking for a cheeky/thong bathing suit that also covers my lil belly (right under my belly button. Love these bottoms! So comfortable, will be buying more colors if they have them!
