Women's Beach Living Ultra High Waist SwimMini Swimsuit Skirt with Tummy Control
Not for ladies with heavier legs!
I LOVE the skirt portion and the high waist! Tucks things where they should be! But it PUCKERS the skirt where it is too on the bottoms under the skirt, where it's very tight on my upper leg. I'm a curvy girl, and it digs in. Since I'm wearing a swim dress over it, no worries, but still! I went by my true measurements and that indicated a size 14. A 16 is HUGE...but still digs into the upper leg. Kind of disappointed ..... please consider that as you plan next years suit bottoms!

I wish I had found these bottoms sooner. Very slimming and comfortable. I ended up buying a second pair, they flatter every tankini top I own.

Not for large legs
I love the way this skirt comes up so high helping to smooth your tummy. Unfortunately for someone like me with large legs the leg openings are too tight. I tried one size up to see if that would remedy the problem but stomach area was way too loose and legs were just as tight (squished everything out :)). Would recommend for anyone with smaller legs who wants to smooth stomach area. FYI I own several regular swimminis which fit legs fine.

Too much fabric, too high, too long, not for me
I have multiple abdominal surgical scars that I wanted to hide, including above my belly button. It's been two decades since I've been swimming, and I also wasn't keen on showing a lot of leg. So, after long conversation with a very sympathetic customer services rep, she helped me order this SwimMini with tummy control, in my normal size of 4 P. When I took it out of the package, I had an idea it wasn't going to be for me, but I decided to at least try it on. I was right. It was too small, as were the tankinis I'd ordered to choose between. But that wasn't the whole problem. There was just too much of everything. I didn't want to wear the whole long skirt which came midway to my knees, and seemed to be a lot more fabric than required. It seemed like it would weigh a ton once it got wet. The tummy control felt like a girdle, which I'd never needed and at less than 120 pounds, still didn't. All this, just to cover some scars I decided I didn't have to be so vain about. I'd already ordered a smaller, just above the waist swim skirt from another maker, and decided to go with it instead. Even it ballooned full of water in the pool during water aerobics, and I was glad I'd sent this one, with even more fabric, back. I could see that LE's product was well made, and that for those who needed the tummy control, could be exactly the right thing. It was just not what I needed. I was glad I had both at the same time for comparison.

I order by accident navy instead of black
I was happy with everything. I order the wrong color

I ordered this in 18W. Sometimes I order a 16W or a 18W. Perfect fit. Top doesn't roll down; it totally stays put! Great length and it falls straight down, as opposed to flipping out or anything else. I would totally buy this again; recommend to anyone. Doesn't dig anywhere and very comfortable.

Perfect Swim Skirt
Love it! Modest and comfortable - worth the money. When swimming in the ocean, the current often caused the top to go up but I was covered with the high waist. I probably could have selected a smaller size... With a T-shirt it looked like a regular skirt so I didn't feel like I was walking around in my bathing suit all day.

Swim skirt with high waist fit as described (my size is plus 24) and felt comfortable in the water-waist did not curl and skirt did not drag down when wet. I do water aerobics and this swim skirt will serve me well.

Comfortable but too long on me
I probably needed the petite version because I found this to be way too long. It was very comfortable though and gave nice tummy control without being binding. Had to send back, might try the petite.

Perfect swim skirt
I have just received this Ultra high swimmini swim skirt in black. I am 5'5" and 145.. pear shaped, and ordered a size 12. What a great fit. Perfect length, covers what it needs to but not too long, as feared by earlier reviews I'd read. Great material, great fit, and does not show through the white and black tankini I purchased to wear with it, also Land's End. Delighted.
