I was nervous when I first ordered the Boxfish Asymmetric bikini bottoms - they looked more revealing and less secure than what I usually go for, as I do enjoy jumping and diving into water - but I loved the design so much that I thought I would risk it. So far I'm glad I did, the bottoms are more secure than I expected, although they do slip a bit on the few shallow dives I have attempted. Having measured myself I thought I would be between a 12 and 14, so ordered both. The 12 fits well, but maybe could be a bit tighter, I contemplated getting a 10 as I am worried the 12 will stretch after a bit of use (as most swimsuits do) but I have decided against it. Apart from that I have been very pleasantly surprised, I love the shape, it's very flattering, and the pattern is stunning - I would definitely recommend them!
