Love these bottoms! Just the right amount of cheekiness and sporty looking. I have 34.5 inch hips, and ordered the XS - perfect! I tie them double knot when playing around on the beach, and in a ribbon when just lounging or doing laps in the pool. Works great either way. I got the Cosmo Pink color. Super cute! Ordering the Tomato color next. Patagonia, please keep making bottoms with this cut!
