We heard you! A mainstay of your swim wardrobe is now more comfortable. Start at the waistband: Updated to have top stitching and tag placement that won't flip out, and features a thinner elastic with a clean finish seam so it lies flat against your body to help avoid creating a muffin top. Leg openings have thinner elastic for a no-pinch, comfy fit. Plus, control panels run all the way up to the waistband for a smoother look. In fact, our control and non-control swim bottoms now have the same rise so you can count on the waistbands to hit at the same point on your body. Love one bottom? Love them all!
