Girls' Smart Swim™ Crossover One Piece Swimsuit
Quality is not what it once was
My daughter has been wearing Lands End suits for the last 5 years or so. We bought this one a few months ago. She does not swim daily, but has maybe used the suit 15 times, in chlorinated pools. It is already starting to lose its spandex and is noticeably sagging. While she does not rinse her suit after every wear (though she is supposed to) she does not treat this suit any differently than her other 4 LE suits. We used to get 2 seasons out of them before they started sagging. The current suit also pilled more than previous years from sitting on concrete. We purposely quit buying the inexpensive discount store suits because they would start sagging and look ratty mid-season. We switched to LE, where the suits held up better. I hope this was a one-time problem with LE suits.
On the plus side, it is comfortable and fits true to size. She loves the wide straps, front lining and x back. The purple dot print is a winner, too.

I love this bathing suite... but it's not as shinny as I thought .
I love this bathing suite, the cut , style, and texture !!! My sister got the orange shinny one last summer for my little one (3 yrs old now) who lives to wear it daily!! I bought the purple one she picked to match her older sister... But was a little disappointed when it was not shinny like last years orange one !!! Other than that ... Great bathing s will continue to buy same style... which holds up FANTASTIC in the Florida Sun & Pools with Year around use !!!

I had such a hard time finding a modest bathing suit with full coverage that wasn't see-through for my "plus" size 11yo - until now! She loves and I love it. There is even great coverage in the chest area, and she feels both beautiful and confident in this suit. We bought her a size 14 and it fits perfectly.

Size 12 is a perfect fit for my 8 year old
The size 12 as recommended by the customer service agent on "Get Live Help" is perfect for my daughter who is 8, turning 9, about 140cm and 91 lb. Easy to wiggle in, but still fitting so there are no 'accidents' when she goes for her dive sessions in school. THANKS.

Very cute, runs small
I really liked this suit and felt that it was good quality. I had trouble getting the sizing correct for my daughter who is short but otherwise average size (as in, not extra slender). I ordered two sizes to be safe and was surprised both were too small. I returned and ordered one size up and it was still too small. At that point I decided to go with another style of Land's End suit for my daughter. I would recommend this suit but beware of sizing...perhaps better for those with a more slender than average build.

Beautiful but snags easily
Gorgeous swim suit but after a week at the pool the bottom and stomach are getting white and fuzzy from snagging on the pool edge. My other daughter got the colorblock suit and it doesn't have this problem. This suit may be fine for beach use and my daughter says it's very comfortable, but it's not holding up to the rigors of the pool.

Runs small - frays a bit
Suit seems to run small. I should have ordered up a size. Also, have used the suit 2 times now and can see some fraying of the fabric at the edges. I don't really expect to have a swim suit for a child last more than 1 season, so I can handle this. The size however, is an issue. Order up a size.

It is so pretty and fits so well!
I have a petite (& narrow) 11 year old who fit into the size 10 perfectly.
It was so pretty I know she loved it (and received many compliments at camp).
I am tempted to buy the next size up for next year!
