Tummy Control Ultra high waist swim brief
I look three sizes smaller!
I have stretch marks on my entire stomach, and, having pale skin, they're extremely noticeable. I don't like showing my tummy, and I thought tankinis were my only option. I've been wearing tankinis since I was 10 because my mom told me that I was too large to wear bikinis. I am also about to start college, and I want to look less frumpy. I found these in a size 24, on sale at the store, and I bought them. I tried buying a top from another store, but had to return it and ended up ordering Lane Bryant's Geo Animal Print Bikini top in a 44DDD (a size that no other store accommodates for). In my new bathing suit I look like a size 18 instead of a 24, and my curves are accented. Only an inch and half of skin shows between the tops and the bottoms. Both are easy to move in, stylish, and give me so much confidence. Last summer I didn't even want to swim because I wanted to hide my body. Thanks Lane Bryant!

Great Coverage and Support!
I bought this swim brief to go with the one-shoulder animal print tankini. That was a great pairing. This brief holds in my tummy and makes me look slimmer in the tankini! Win-Win! I am usually a size 16 in LB bottoms and the 16 in this fit great!

For the pear shape figure only
This swim bottom was specifically designed for the pear shaped figure. The waist is very small and the rear end and leg holes are very large.
I could barely get it up over my stomach, but the rear end was so large, the leg holes so loose, it would be obscene for me to wear.
I am sure another woman might just love it, but not for my body shape.

Love this swim bottom!
I purchased this in both an 18 and 20, and kept both! (For reference, I normally wear a 20 in LB pencil skirts). I decided to get both based on previous reviews about sizing down offering better control. I find that the 18 provides that, but the 20 is great for those more bloated days (which when drinking margaritas on the beach, it happens). I'm 5'10" and both suits come up to about 2" below my bra line. I plan to wear with two midkini tops (one balconette style, one halter - both purchased elsewhere), together they leave about 1" gap. I love the look of them together and so does my bf! I hope to get a lot of use out of them at the shore this summer! Some other reviews have mentioned a "soggy bottom" feeling which I definitely now understand. Something about the lining being slightly too long in the back is causing it, but it's not a visible problem and I find it exists more in the 20 than the 18.
