Close enought to what I was looking for
Reasonable coverage although somewhat too narrow in front crotch and a little droopy at the back bottom. Have not had it in the ocean yet. Adhesive on the inside protective cover had transferred to the fabric and required Goo Gone to remove. Then more washes to get Goo Gone out.
Protective lining left sticky residue
I like the fit of the bottoms but when I pulled off the protective lining, it left a super sticky residue. I tried washing them and it still didn't come off. I will most likely be returning them unless I can figure out how to wash it off.

I ordered these bottoms because they seemed to offer the most coverage in the behind area and I wanted the parrot design to match the swimsuit top that I also bought (and absolutely love!). I typically wear a size 4 and I have an hour glass figure, so initially I ordered a small. The small size was too tight in the hips and not comfortable. I retur... Read Morened the small and got a medium instead because I really wanted these bottoms to work. The medium size fits better but they are still a little uncomfortable because the top trim tends to fold over a lot and I have to adjust the bottom behind area of fabric frequently. Overall, the quality is good, but I am not in love with them. They do seem to fit like typical bikini style bottoms.
They run small (Pear Shape)
I’m 5’7” 146 lbs and I’m a pear shape. I’m typically between a medium and large on bottoms. I bought a large to be safe but to my surprise, they were too small due to the tight elastic at the waist band and leg holes. I am going to exchange it for an xl because I really want these to fit. The shape of the bottoms is perfect for a big booty.
I love the wider "hipster" side on this bikini bottom - I feel much more comfortable being active in this style! My only suggestion for improvement is that the upper elastic is quite thin and tight. It dug in and so I am going to try a larger size than usual. I would love to see Patagonia use a wider elastic at the top to avoid that pinch... Read Moreed effect.

Shell Seeker Bottom
The Shell Seekers bottom is a great cut and fit for the mature woman who does not want to give up two piece bathing suits yet. I hope Patagonia expands the line to include more fabric choices of the W's Bottom Turn Top and Shell Seekers Bottoms. Only improvement might be a little more stiffness in top band so lies flat continuously.
