Patagonia Women's Shell Seeker Bikini Bottoms

True To Size
August 26, 2021

Overall great quality

Fits exactly as expected. I don't have to tug/readjust the fabric very often - it even stayed put while jumping off some small cliffs! I also love that it provides full bum coverage - the thong style is super cute but not for me.

Runs small

Was told this would fit my measurements but runs small like most Patagonia clothing

Sticky strip way too sticky

The strip on the bikini bottom left a super sticky residue that too forever to come off. It wouldnt even come off after washing.

Stays on!

I'm right between a size small and medium, and knew patagonia runs small so buying the small size was a little risky. However, these bottoms run true to size! A little tight on me but I like that for surfing and swimming because they don't ride down! Such a win. Super comfortable. I got these in white and am happy they aren't sheer!

Perfect bottom

Great coverage for beach volleyball

No wedgies here!

So many swimsuit bottoms shift or hit at a weird place on the leg or hip. This one is not one of those! I put this bottom on and it becomes a second skin. So comfortable, sits attractively in all the places I like and allows me to get out on the water with confidence. I like it so much I bought a second one!

Super comfortable!

I wish there was a Medium as they would fit me better however these bottoms are very comfortable, fitted and flattering, and true to size.

Bathing suit bottom

Lovely design - but they need to improve the fit so it stays snug to your bottom!

Covers the Tush

I loved the full coverage on these bottoms. I have big hips and having that coverage is everything especially when you're swimming around.

Not flattering for curves

This item would likely fit if I didn't have any curves. These bottoms are too snug at the waist but fine in the seat and legs. They also have a flat 2" waistband that just folds over and is uncomfortable. I'd just be fixing that waistband all the time.

Great Swim Bottom

Could be a little fuller cut on the bottom.

I like how this suit fits and it's flattering and cute. I tend to wear a medium in most things, I ordered M and L to compare and ended up keeping the large because it wasn't as tight of a fit. I did experience the sticky residue when I removed the liner but it came off easily with rubbing alcohol.

pretty great bottoms

5'6, 135 lb, full butt and thighs, flat stomach. I'm 47 and these are actually very flattering. I was debating making the switch to a 1-piece, and these paired with the Bottom Turn top are adorable. Love the blue floral print. So happy I found these!

Great swimsuit bottoms

I love these bottoms. They provide enough coverage without being too weighty in material. There is a weird sticky goo holding the protective liner in that is difficult to remove. I used Cascade dish washing powder and it took it right off with a few scrubbings. No oily reside like you might get with a goo gone type of product.

just right

Initially ordered the XS, then traded in for a S and it was perfect. I usually wear 0-2 in bottoms. These offer a bit more coverage than your typical bikini bottoms, nice to mix and match tops with!

Great product

Fits great.

Comfortable Swim Bottoms

I love these swim bottoms. Im 54 and 160 pounds. These are great because they actually fit me and my large legs and butt.

Nice bottom

Beautiful bottom and design. However, the back of the bottom showed the inner lines very distorting the view. I need more time to adjust it.

September 11, 2019

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.

Ok Bottoms

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.

June 16, 2019

Almost Perfect

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.

Would recommend

Love the bottoms. I wish there was a little more coverage in the behind area; however very comfortable. I’ve had two kids in the last two years and a half years and I feel they will be perfect soon enough. I’m 5’6, currently 135 lbs. and the medium worked for me.

March 3, 2019

Almost perfect, more prints please

Not quite as much coverage as last seasons PARIES bottoms, but overall the fit/coverage is good. I am only returning them because I'm not sold on the parrot print. The colors are great though. Please consider making more prints.

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.
