Girls' Woven Swim Skirt
Great swim skirt. Dries fast!
We've tried the other swim mini skirts before, and we loved them, but they didn't seem to be as durable as this one. This swim skirt is easy to get on with a snap and velcro closure. It dries, quickly and is made of the same material as my son's swim shorts from LE, which really seem to last and hold up well. My daughter loves this swim skirt and it goes well with her tankini.

Way too tight
The skirt is super cute and the material is very nice, but as a previous reviewer said, it doesn't stretch at all. My daughter is 6 and 50lbs and about 4ft tall. I got her a size 6. We can pull it on her will some effort, but practically have to cut it off of her when it's wet. It also rubs against her thighs causing them to become red. I have them on the loosest setting, so I know it's not that. I like the look of the skirt so much that I am going to buy her another one a size up to see if that helps.

I was happy to see the adjustable waistband as there was no slim-fit option. The light color (turquoise) gets dirty fast at the beach. Dries quickly, which pleases my daughter. A bit low slung for my taste, but that seems to be the trend now.

Great skirt, but tops don't match
I love the skort, although as another reviewer mentioned, it does NOT have shorts underneath - it is like a regular bathing suit bottom or underwear). The cincher elastics make it work for my super-skinny daughter, which is great, and she found it comfortable to swim in. My complaint is that the tops do NOT match - the purples are different. It seems that the tops have the purple from last year, which is brighter, with more of a pink undertone. This swim skort is a flat, soft purple. This is incredibly frustrating, as I would have to spend $10 just to send it back, and then I'd have to try to buy enough stuff to qualify for free shipping to try to replace it, and from other people have said, the other shirts don't sound like they match either. So now I have a top and a bottom, but still not coordinated swim outfit. I'm really disappointed in Lands End for swim wear this year - so many have issues with cut, fit, material, and to throw in issues with coordinating pieces is all the more disappointing. Nothing seems to work for my daughter this year - the ones she loved have poor reviews (the shorts, one of the one-pieces, and the two piece she liked), or no matching coordinates she liked (love the red UV shirt with the white stripes, but really - no shorts, skort or bikini bottoms in red?), and I finally thought we'd found something she liked, only to be disappointed to find the pieces didn't match when they arrived. I am on a restricted budget, so once a year me or my mother buy both kids one swim outfit from lands end, and they last for a good 1-2 years. This year, sadly, it was a complete waste of money.

Limited range of motion for swimming
It's a nice quality skirt with a little pair of swim panties underneath, but the skirt is not stretchy at all. If your child wants to swim, jump, and splash in the water, they really won't be able to do much in this skirt.

Modest, comfortable and versatile
This is the second summer my 5-year old has worn the dark blue swim skort, and I've bought one for next summer already. I like that it is modest, versatile, and comfortable. It matches pink tops, the LE blue/purple tops, and many others as well. It has the adjustable waist which my daughter has to have; she is skinny. Without cinching, she would have to wear a size down, which would be too short. She is wearing the size 5, is just shy of six years old, and has an approx. 21" waist (4-buttonholes of cinching on each side). She is around 42 pounds and has short legs (long torso). I found that the length of the skort is the limiting factor for sizing. It's a good piece for summer!

Not swim shorts underneath
I was disappointed to find the description was not accurate. It states that there are swim 'shorts' underneath (main reason I selected these over other swim skirts) only to find they were swim panties. LE please update the description. Also, the color was a little lighter than some coordinates listed in the same color.
