Girls' Saltwater Taffy Ruffle Bodice Tankini Top
Fits my very tall 5 year old perfectly.
This style fits my daughter perfectly. She is very tall for her age and we have trouble finding one piece suits that work for her. This covers her tummy and the adjustable straps give her a great fit. Lands End bathing suits never fail and we love this tankini top and matching bottoms. I would buy again!

Very cute colors and design. The slim top could be a little narrower around the chest and longer in length in the 7 slim, but it is just long enough to touch the bottom of the matching swim skirt. My daughter is slender and longer through the torso. It is the best fit we have found this year and my daughter loves it. The adjustable straps are very helpful in making it work.

Nice fit and coverage
This suit has a nice fit (long enough and not too snug) and the ruffles on top provide 'camouflage' for girls who may feel like they need a little bit more coverage.

Bought this for my plus sized daughter who still wears her suits from LE from last summer. This one was so small, I honestly looked at the tag thinking maybe they sent the wrong size. Nope. Measured it up against last year's suits - It was cut 2" thinner.

We bought this in February for weekly lessons. After about 10 times in the pool, it started to fade, despite rinsing afterward and then washing when we got home. There is another girl in lessons that has the one-piece in this same purple pattern. It too is faded. I bought another set of swim tops and pale green skirts at the same time. My second daughter has worn hers more and you can see the obvious fading when comparing the two. The shirts (orange and pink) seem fine. I'm disappointed, because the LE suits we've bought in the past have held up so well, I could pass them on to another daughter, but it doesn't look like that's going to be possible this time around. Pic is after about 20 times in the pool.
Size 14 fit was fine for my very tall (5'3"), 105 lb., long-waisted 11 yr. old. No gaps under the arms, and the length of the top was fine. Such an adorable suit, it's too bad about the fading.

Overall a great suit
I ordered this suit for my almost 11yr old daughter because it offers a bit of modesty for changing preteen bodies. I have been very pleased with the fit, but the ruffle on the top had begun to unravel and has come unattached from the fabric. I was going to send it back for another. Because it is only June and here in coastal SC we have ALOT of summer left. Unfortunately, her size is out of stock.

Slim is not slim!
Ordered this suit in the orange pattern, which I love! But the slim is definitely not slim! My daughter had a tank suit in a 12 slim last year, which fit her perfectly. Since there is no 14 slim I decided to order a tankini this year (since I thought the tank would be too short) in 12 slim. Unfortunately, it's actually baggy on the sides, so it will have to go back. I have always loved Lands End for their slim sizes, but we also had trouble with the leggings this year -- too baggy! :( If slim, regular, and plus sizes are offered, they should actually be slim, regular and plus ... not every girl "fills out" between size 12/14/16!

Fit is not great
This was not my first choice, but your selection in larger girls (12,14,16)sizes was not great...at least every time I checked for sizes I needed. I bought this top for my tall 10 yr old...she's 5'3" and not at all overweight. This top is too wide and short for her, but I kept it because there were no other options. We just took it in a little at the top, under the arms. Was unable to find a size/style in other sizes for my slim 14 yr old. Nothing was ever available, an I've been checking fairly regularly since late April.

Great quality swimwear
I love LE suits for my daughter, they are high quality, long lasting, fit well and are comfortable for my very difficult-to-fit child (sensory issues); the only thing I wish is that Lands End sold suits as a set - it's a bit of a chore sometimes trying to find matching top and bottom in the same size. Still, overall a great value.

Cute when dry, poorly-fitting when wet
My daughter wears a 9/10 and is completely average for height and weight. Based on other reviews I ordered this tankini top in a 10 slim in the orange pattern. The fabric was bright and cheerful without being obnoxious and and the length of the top was just right. Even with the top being a slim, though, it is much too baggy. It looks pretty cute when it's dry but once it gets wet it's super droopy and looks huge.
I ordered the matching bottoms in a 10 regular since everyone said that they fit more accurately. I found that to be true. The bottoms fit perfectly well. It's just the top that is simply too wide. The length is right on, so if your girl is a bit on the heavier side this suit would probably be great.
