Little Girls' Solid Woven Swim Shorts
Great for tall kids.
I got these for my four year old because she is very tall for her age and one piece bathing suits can be too small for her, even in a size 5. I got these in a five and they fit great, my daughter wore them all day on a boat and was very comfortable. They fit great and I think she has a little room to grow. They are also super cute!!

Great Shorts-Would love some darker colors
My two girls have been wearing these shorts since they were 2. I love the little bit of extra coverage they provide without looking like boys shorts and both my girls prefer the shorts with the rashguard tops. My now 6 year old is in the big girl size and they still fit great. My oldest is long and lanky and my younger daughter is shorter and a little stockier and both girls have no problems with the fit. They have held up well. My youngest usually ends up wearing her older sister's and they've held up through both kids and could easily be worn a third time. We have a pool in our apartment complex, and we go swimming most nights, so they get a lot of use all summer. My only complaint is color selection. My youngest is still wearing some navy blue ones that are a couple years old at this point. My oldest is in the turquoise ones and every night the rear is very dirty from sitting on the side of the pool, etc. I have not had that problem in the darker colors they used to offer. I would love for them to bring back the darker colors.

All I can say is we love them.
They are good for any water activity.

My daughter loves them
I got a pair of these in 2012 for my daughter who is 5 this yr (bought ahead for this year when they were on sale) and so glad I did. I could tell back then that she was jealous that my son had a swimsuit (swim trunks and rash guard top) he could wear just about anywhere (say we we were going on an all day trip where they might get wet, then dry, and we might have to go in a store after that, etc). But for her we had to change into/out of her suit every time, or wear clothing over it. These have been great to solve that problem. I would buy another pair this year, but the color choice doesn't work for us. Pink or white show dirt too easily! How about some go-with-everything black, navy, chocolate brown, dark purple? Otherwise this is a great product. The fit is modest enough in the inseam length (which with many shorts is usually too short for active girls) and the back rise (so many bottoms now are low rise, but they don't bring the back rise up to provide coverage when they squat or sit). I sew, so I am picky about having clothing that fits my children the way I want it to. So often I get frustrated and end up wanting to make clothes that fit well, which I can do--but I'd much rather buy them when they exist. My daughter is slim but with a round bottom and the 4 fits her well.

These pants are great for modest swimming. They are long enough to cover the girls bottoms and have stylish girl fit. The material holds up very well. We got pink and my little girl lives in them.
Wish they had more colors, white is just not a great outdoors color!

Wonderful - please keep selling these!
We love these swim bottoms for our girls. They are so much more modest than a regular swim suit bottom, but yet don't look like "boy" shorts. They fit our girls very well, and lasted two seasons - super! The only improvement I would recommend would be to make them a tad bit longer - or offer two lengths, perhaps. These are great, and I hope Lands End will continue to offer similar shorts in the future!

Thank you for slim fit shorts
These are great shorts. We really appreciate the option for slim fit, it is very hard to find shorts that fit let alone water shorts. The quality is good and the fit is great. Only wish there was more options for colour choice.

Love these. Good fit for a normal healthy girl. May need to go down a size for very slim girl.

good, but know how they fit!!
These light-weight shorts fit JUST right as swim bottoms with a swim diaper for my slim, 26 lb 2 1/2 yr old daughter to wear with her tankini. They are NOT full-coverage, loose-fitting coverups AT ALL. Be prepared.

Great for slim girls---more colors, please!
I love that these shorts come in slim sizes! My very tall and slim soon-to-be 9 year old still fits these shorts, in 8Slim, from last year. They have held up very well, and they still cover her bottom enough for modesty. HOWEVER, we have the white ones, and after she has played in muddy backyards, they are not white anymore, no matter what I do. I really wish these came in navy or at least some kind of blue, so that they don't show the stains so much and match her rash guard in the pretty blue and green that we bought from Lands' End last year. I agree with another reviewer that this year's rash guards are not as varied in selection as last year's. My daughter does not like mock turtlenecks, and this year there is no other option. I hope the selection will be wider next year---we didn't buy one this year because of the limited selection.
