Women's Shape & Enhance Ultra High Rise SwimMini Swim Skirt
Not the right style for me.
I'm thick waisted. So, I thought that the ultra high waist on this swim mini would trim the look of my middle. Whoa! I ended up looking heavier. This style would work better for someone pear shaped with a little bit of a belly. On me, it took my belly and filled in the slight evidence that I even have a waist. I returned that swimsuit and ended up buying a mini swim mini instead. It seems counterintuitive, but that style ended up being more flattering to my figure.

I originally ordered this in sz 12 but sent it back and reordered sz 10 which fit really well. The design is great for someone that has a problem with flat behind but need the size around the middle, the attached skirt covers any excess fabric in the backside. The high waist really pulls in around the midriff area, quite flattering and looks good with the swim top I purchased with it.

If the skirt had hit my legs as shown on the picture it would have been great. It's a little too long, by about 3 inches (I'm 5' 4.5" tall), making it look somewhat dowdy. So now I need to try to find a seamstress that can work with this type of fabric. The elastic in the panty is very tight, creating a bulge....not attractive. I wish Landsend would improve their shipping packaging. Every time, including this time, the article arrives scrunched up and wrinkled. In fact the top I ordered was in such a small tightly-wrapped plastic bag I thought I'd never straighten it out.

Just what I was looking for
This swim skirt was perfect to control those little tummy ripples that have developed over the years. I also liked the way it kept me covered while playing with my grandkids when my bathing suit top might rise up a bit. On the negative side, the skirt is attached just at the largest part of my hips, so I would have preferred that a bit higher. On the whole the fit was very comfortable and perfect for sitting on the beach.

Love this swim mini!
I am very happy with the way this swim mini holds in and covers up what I want hidden! It is very comfortable and a good length for senior legs. The fabric is a good quality and a nice weight. I ordered my usual size 12 and it fits well. I'm 5'7" and 155 lbs. Would have given it a 5 star rating but I haven't actually worn it in the water yet to swim. Thanks Lands' End, this is just what I have been looking for!

It did as advertised. My wife looked great in it.
It fit perfectly and looked great when my wife wore it.

Wish they made in regular waist height
Loved the look, feel and design of this other than the very high waist. Thought maybe I'd like it, but it would've been another layer under the Shape & Enhance Floral Tankini. Decided to return and wish they would consider a regular waist in this style.

OMG! ...best swim-mini EVER!
This is the absolute BEST swim mini that I have ever put on my body! I am 5'3", and a size 12-14, hourglass curvy ~ purchased the 14 and it fits like a glove. It holds me in without feeling like I am wrapped in an ace bandage, and skims right over the "extra" outer thighs that I have developed over the years. I bought it while on sale, and it's not now (?), but if it was, I would purchase another color in a New York minute! AWESOME!!!

Love the fit and length
I am curvy and pear-shaped and love the way this skirt fits. Stays put with no gaps even when really active in the pool

Great for sucking it all in!
I did return this because I decided on the tummy control skirt instead. I have to say the ultra high rise sucked it all in! The reason for my return is I wanted something a bit less constricting since I play with my 4 & 8 year old at the waterpark and beach all summer. Comfort goes first! It was very nice and if I wanted a suit for more "show" this would be it!
