Women's Beach Living SwimMini Swim Skirt
Great Swim Skirt!
Love this: fits perfectly, great length (I ordered it in Petite, even though I'm 5'8", so it's not too long), well-made, will go with lots of tankini tops, should last for years!

Leg openings too tight!
I wear a size 6 or 8 in LE pants. I have full thighs. This is why I want a swim mini. Why oh why would LE make a swim mini (for women who want to hide their thighs) with leg openings that are painfully tight. I tried on the 6, 8, 10 & 12, and the thigh openings never got looser. The sizes got bigger at the waist and looser on the skirt, but the legs stayed the same. So disappointed. I bought the cute striped top, now I have to find a skirt from another store, to match. Big hassle.

Super Tight Leg Holes
I was so hoping to find a bathing suit this year that helped cover my aging thighs. However, the fit of this skirt is quite confused. The leg holes are super tight to the point of being painful, while the waist bags. It's apparently made for boney legs and wide hips.

Fit and color were great!
Been wearing the swim bottoms for years and needed another color. Only thing is there thinner then they were before. Quality not as good as before, but needed this color to go with new top.

Ahhh!!! Shorter than described!!!
The quality of this product is excellent. I am only giving it 2 stars because of the inaccuracy of the description
I read the information before making a purchase.
"Regular is approximately 14" long (Petite 12 1/2")"
I just received my size 2 REGULAR and it measures 12 1/2"
So disappointed. I REALLY needed it to be 14 inches. I am a total loss for what to wear on our upcoming swimming trip =(
Unfortunately I will have to return this. And since it is too short everything else from my recent purchase.
I would recommend this product because of the quality.

Oh how I miss the LE Faille Swim Separates!
I had a deep appreciation for many many years of the LE Faille Swim Separates. When they started phasing them out...I purchased several of the faille skirts because I loved them so much. They have served me well - and it's time for some new swim skirts. The beach living swim skirt, is not it for me. I wear a 4 or 6 in pants/skirts but even in an 8 or 10, this skirt does not work for me. It quite possibly accentuates everything BAD that I want to conceal with a swim skirt! The faille swim skirts didn't cling, the fabric was smooth and hung fairly straight down from the waistband but was comfortably close fitting. The fabric on the beach living swim skirts is really thin, accentuates everything, clings...ugh. Awful. The search continues! Sorry LE! I was faithful for a long time, but I think it's time for me to move on...

I never thought that I would look good in a swim suit because I have gained 30 pounds, but this skirt is really great. I got it in blue and combined it with the Blouson Tankini Swimsuit Top - Larimar Floral in Deep Sea Blue. I can't believe how great this combo is. I have an apple shape which is usually disastrous in a swimsuit. Even though these have tummy control, they don't give you a muffin top.
Together they are really cute. I could even wear this combo to run into a store in Florida on the way to the pool and not feel I need a coverup.

Swim Skirt Made Me Feel Comfortable At The Pool
Ordered this swim skirt for my trip to Florida. Very comfortable and had fun with the choice of two different tops to go with it.This swim skirt covered the top of my legs (which is my problem area) and made me feel confident to wear a swim suite in public.

I like the fit and it's very comfortable for a full day at the beach.

Not for "hippy" girls.
I really wish that this skirt worked for me. I have a pear shape and would love it if LE had a bathing suit bottom that worked for me. I really love their bathing suit tops, which I order annually, however, I have to find another manufacturer for the bathing suit bottoms. The elastic around the thighs are WAY too tight!! Generally people who wear skirted bathing suits are "hippier" than average and choose this style suit to camouflage their lower half. I don't think LE takes this into account. I loved it when years ago they had different cut thigh openings and you could choose how high the cut was. I always chose cut #3 which was the highest. It was much more comfortable than the current style and also very flattering since it elongated the leg. I wish LE would help ALL women to camouflage their different issues with their suits, not just women with a little tummy they want to hide. How about those of us with hips?
