If you know your body, and your desired shape these are fantastic! Very comfortable!
Delicate material would not advise sitting on any rough surface as it will ruin the material. Even just a couple minutes of sitting once is all it takes.
Thank you for the feedback, Marcus. And true fact actually. The premium grade of the fabric we use for all BANG! swimsuits is made to remain vibrant, comfortable, stretchy and maintain its signature drape, elasticity and the perfect fit is capable of delivering. However, and just like with any other top-grade fabrics (think silk or linen), finer grade usually also equals “delicate" so it's meant to be treated and handled with special care. We provide guidelines for this reason in the “CARE INSTRUCTIONS” section of the pages for all our products. In the case of Swim Mini-Briefs like this one you got, we recommend to "Avoid contact with rough surfaces or sharp edges to prevent damage to the fabric.” We strongly encourage to observe these guidelines in order to get the most out of all BANG! swimsuits in the long term.
Look in the lower part of the product’s description (on each page for any of our products) to find the “SIZING" tab, and tap it to see the sizes and measures information for that specific item.
* For swimwear and underwear in general, the rule is that measures are stated mostly by reference of regular-clothing waist size (not actual body measures). Using this example here, if you usually wear 33" in jeans or pants, then a Large should be your size of reference as per the list.
* Have in mind though that some items like our Swim Mini-Briefs are cut to fit quite tight on purpose. So if your personal preference is to wear a snug fit, go for the size as per the table. If you prefer to feel the fit more relaxed, go one size up.
