At last, a perfectly sized and cut, basic bikini bottom! Yes, these are far skimpier than your "average" cut bikini bottoms--after all, they are Volcom's "tiny" style--and feature a sporty Brazilian style that is fashionable and functional for active, athletic, and sun bathing types. While I can't speak for all shapes and figures, if you are on the hunt for a more skimpy cut bottom that looks, feels, and fits good, in and out of the water, I highly recommend these bottoms. And, you can't beat the basic color ways (I have them in both black and maple red and love both colors)--great for mix and matching! These bottoms have instantly become my go-to bottoms!
