Women's Beach Living Mini SwimMini
Not matronly at all!
I remember my grandmother wearing swimsuits that were skirted on the bottom, and I thought this skirt might have a matronly look, but it doesn't! It's really cute. Nice and short, yet it hides the very top of your thighs where skin is delicate and shaving tends to leave red bumps (can I say that here? Guess we'll see!). The fuschia pink color is gorgeous, and of course matches the bardot print tankini in the same color. My husband loves the look, so that should tell you something. The whole tankini and skirt idea is great, I think, because you can buy different sizes on top and bottom. Specificially, I am 5'3", 105 lbs and bought a size 4DD in the tankini and a 2 in the skirt and it all fit well.

I was between sizes so I ordered the larger size and it fit great, very comfortable, even after being it all day at the beach. My thighs are heavy and it is alittle short . So in the future I think for my shape I will stick with the swim mini.

BEST Swim Skirt EVER!
The Mini SwimMini is the best, most flattering, swim bottom I've ever worn. Make no mistake--it's definitely short, even sexy, so if that's not what you're looking for, you're better off going with the regular (longer) SwimMini. I LOVE it, it feels good to be a 39 year old mom rocking a cute suit! Great coverage without being frumpy, like other swim skirts tend to be. Runs a wee bit small (I'm a pretty standard size 8 but have to size up to 10 in this). Excellent quality, very comfortable material--nice and thick with no visible panty line under the skirt (I hate that). Comfortable waist band with no bulging, as long as you're wearing the correct size. I have three of these and intend to grab it in as many colors as I can--the perfect swim staple. Looks fabulous with the halter tankini tops, too!

Runs Very Small
I order a lot of clothing from Landsend, and after losing weight over the past year, my size in skirts and jeans is a 12, which fit perfectly. Knowing suits sometimes tend to be snug, I ordered this mini in both a 14 and 16 to compare fit. Both were terribly small. The suit bottom under the skirt cut into my thighs, even in the 16. This skirt was not flattering at all. I will say that the overall material was of good quality, but I wouldn't recommend this bottom.

Doesn't hide the Fat
Compared to the other 4 swim mini's I purchased from Landsend, this one was snugger around the abdomen. Since I have a roll of fat on mine (size 22), it showed from the side view. That was not the case with the other swim mini's. I also did not care the seam of the band that went around the waist to fall right on the widest part of my hips.

Very low rise. Why bother with a skirt if you are showing this much flesh.
Unhappy that there wasn't a better option than this very short and very low rise. Might just as well put a ruffle on a bikini bottom.

I tried a couple different sizes in this. I am 5'2" and the petite was the best fit. Very well made and helps to hide a few flaws without looking old ladyish. This is my first suit with a skirt like this. Love it!

Love this bottom.
This swim skirt fits true to size and looks great with all of my Lands End tankini tops. I wear bathing suits almost everyday at the beach and Lands End suits are all I have.

Best swim bottoms
I love the mini swim mini! The wide waistband holds it all in. The short skirt is a great length, it covers up my flaws but does not look matronly. I have one mini swim mini that has lasted through 3 summers. The quality is great!

Great mini skirt
Just the right amount of coverage. Not too long and frumpy. Very sporty.
