Love this swimsuit and all the strings and color...however, the bottoms were not cut the same as in the photo as you can see, my bottom ate that thing up! Lol...but, it was tied properly and it stayed in place. I was able to wear the top with no problem which was great! I even went down a waterslide and nothing came tumbling out. The only other problem is that the color faded. It was purple when I went into the pool and pink when I got out but for the price, it's sexy and cute! This too got several compliments so be sexy, be bold and do you!!!
