impossible to remove sticky sanitary adhesive
I should have listened to the other reviews about the adhesive being impossible to remove. I did what they suggested and used rubbing alcohol to remove the adhesive, but I don't have 9 hours a day, every day, to do this. I spent a ridiculous amount of time trying. So now, my private parts stick to the adhesive and I have to be careful to remem... Read Moreber to remove the bottoms slowly, so I don't pull skin off with it. I find these too annoying to wear. Big disappointment.

Great Active Swim Suit
I ordered the Nanogrip top and bottom as well as the Nireta top for a mix and match option. I love the entire set and find the Nanogrip fabric stays in place great during beach and swimming activities. The bottoms have good coverage and the overall fit is flattering. The only challenge I had with these bottoms was that when you take the swim liner ... Read Moreout it leaves behind a very sticky residue. If you save the liner you can use it to remove some of the residue by dabbing it repeatedly.
So far great product but i have one issue...
May be its just me, but my issue is not with the item but the prep (i guess) of the product. Though i totally understand the thought and pupose behind the protective liner, maybe another liner with another adhesive could be applied? With the nano grip interior of the bottom, i can not get the sticky out of the crotch. I tried washing but it still b...

I will keep the item bc i do like the item - and no sense in ordering another if its going to come with the same protective liner. Id just like to leave a suggestion to use another protective liner method.
Hi Kristina, thank you for taking the time to write us a review! We're really sorry to hear about the residue that was left from the protective liner. We'd suggest dabbing the effected areas with a cotton round using isopropyl rubbing alcohol and that residue should wipe away. We truly appreciate you taking the time to let us know about your experience and we've passed this feedback along to the appropriate members of our team.
Great fit, but
The protective panty liner sticky residue won't come off and I've tried absolutely everything. Bummer #1, bummer #2 is the nanogrip material keeps folding out and looks like I'm wearing something weird. Like there is too much nanogrip material for the bathing suit. I'm always having to adjust it which is kind of embarrassing con... Read Morestantly tugging at my bottoms. Otherwise, at least the sizing worked nicely.
Hi there, we are sorry to hear about the liner residue.To remove this, spray or rub isopropyl alcohol onto the affected area until it is saturated, but not dripping. Then, rub the area with your fingers, a paper towel, or the suit itself until the adhesive comes off. Once the adhesive is removed, wash your suit as normal and hang it to dry. If you find that this does not effectively remove the residual adhesive, please reach back out so that we can assist you with an [exchange](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Adhesive is impossible
The adhesive is really an issue. If you will be frustrated spending more than a few minutes to get off with rubbing alcohol, don't buy. I want to keep the bottoms to have a matching set, otherwise, I would return and not look back. So disappointed.
Hi Jessica, we're really sorry you struggled with getting rid of the remaining adhesive. It is usually easily removed by saturating the affected area with rubbing alcohol and rubbing the suit on itself, but we apologize that that wasn't the case. We went ahead and passed your feedback over to the appropriate team. Thanks so much for your review.
Fits and looks great, but adhesive issues
Overall very pleased with suit. Material, color, fit and design are all great. Only drawback was the strange adhesive over the crotch area. Difficult to remove sanitary- panty liner that once removed left behind a sticky icky residue. Used isopropyl alcohol to dab away and some removed, will have to continue again to remove all.
These bottoms seem great, except that the plastic sanitary liner left a ton of glue residue that I can't figure out how to get off. Mine are the previous generation, so maybe the problem has been fixed? But if someone from Patagonia is reading this... how can I remove the glue without damaging the bottoms? :(
Hi Madeleine, the best way to get rid of that pesky glue is to take a cotton ball with isopropyl alcohol and wipe away the sticky residue. You'll then want to wash them with warm soapy water and hang to dry.
