Girls' Solid Smart Swim™ SwimMini
Didn't Last Even One Summer
I've been purchasing LE suits for my girls for 10yrs and this was by far lesser quality than anything I've come to expect from LE and I'm disappointed.
My daughter, age 9, picked the blue color and she wore it for once a week for indoor school swimming and then wore it several times a week for 6 weeks of summer. After the school swimming it was already stretched out and then during summer it just started to unravel - quite literally - from the bottom. I think a swim suit or swim suit bottom should last at least one summer.

Cute, fit runs smaller
Got this in pink. My daughter typically wears a 7 or 8 in pants and skirts, I ordered a 10 thinking that it would fit for awhile or might not fit until next summer. She is wearing it now. There is a little extra room, but it's not falling off for sure. She loves it. I like that it's a little longer and modest.

Cute style, great quality!
This is by far my daughter's favorite swim skirt. She has this style in several different colors and they all look really cute and hold up year after year. They keep their color and shape even when they're wet. We love them and will keep buying more!

have not worn it to the pool yet but tried it on and it is true to size. Very nice quality. I know it will last as long is it will fit her and I can then pass it down to my younger daughter.

Cute bottom for my daughter's swim suit!
I bought this size 16+ SwimMini for my 12 year old daughter to replace the bottom that came with her current swimsuit, which was like a bikini bottom and not flattering for her shape. The color matched well with her suit top, fits well, and is now part of her complete swimsuit. It washes and wears well, though I recommend hanging to dry after machine washing. My daughter swims several times a week in a chlorinated pool and this product continues to wear and look great!

This swim mini provided the perfect coverage for my 8 yr old and the color is beautiful.
This swim mini is the best. They hold up for year round wear and if her sizing would allow she could wear this for multiple years. The coverage and fit is exceptional compared to other similar items on market. I am a long time customer of Lands End swimwear and I don't see that changing!

I bought this & some others for my granddaughters. I love the coverage & they love the comfort. They wash beautifully & wear fantastically.

Cute and versatile
I bought this skirt to use with the top of a 2 piece tankini set. I felt the bikini cut bottoms of that set were a little too lacking for young girl. This skirt works perfect, and my daughter loves it! With the many color options, you can mix and match it with a number of Lands End swim tops/tees. Thanks for great selections of cute yet modest swimwear, Lands End!

Great Fit Great Coverage
I ordered sizes for both my girls according to LE fit guide. They are spot on. My girls and I love the coverage for modesty. Easy pull on skirts with panty are helpful for potty breaks. We purchased light blue and paired it with pink rash guard shirts. So cute!

Darling and comfy
This skirt is darling. We got it in a 10 slim Wild Violet to go with the Wild Violet long-sleeve rash guard. They match nicely and go well together. The fit is great and true to size for the slim child wearing it.
Last year I went with the woven swim skirt and a rash guard that was supposed to be the same color, but the color match was off, the woven skirt wasn't available in slim, and the swimmer indicated that she wished for the greater freedom of movement that the swim mini offers. I was scared off of the swim mini last year because of the non-hemmed bottom, but it actually does look fine.
As another reviewer notes, this does not come up to the swimmer's waist; it's more like the the popular low-rise pants styles. For sun protection, we're fully covered with the long-sleeve rash guard, but if you're hoping that a tankini will reach the top of the skirt, that's not going to work out. I wouldn't call it immodest by typical American standards.
Personally I'd love to have my swimmer covered from neck to ankles when swimming in the sun, but she wants a feminine look and not to be too weird. This swim mini with the long-sleeve rash guard is the best compromise we've found.
