Women's Slender Ultra High Waist SwimMini Swim Skirt
I've worn skirted swimsuits for years. This is so much better! The fit is ultra comfortable, the length is perfect (I'm 5'7"), and the skirt looks nice when wet as well as when dry. All I had to do was pat it with a towel and there was no wet cling. Also it does not float up around my chest when I am sitting in water (I always had to tuck other skirts into the leg elastic when sitting in a hot tub). I bought two and hope this will become a regular staple item for Lands End as I will continue to purchase this for years to come.

Very durable, too!!
Yes, the fit and style are perfect for me (16W) but the real story on why I love this is that when I was kayaking and capsized into some very solid rocks, I was sure there would be holes in the places where I had scraped across. Judging by the bruises on my body, there should have been nothing left of my swimsuit. Amazingly, not only was it still intact, there was not even a snag! At a time when I had many other things to worry about, the condition of my swim suit was not one of them. I also had on a LE tankini and swim tee....not a snag on either of them! Thank you for the high quality that most times does not get tested!

Midriff-slimming Tankini Skirt
These are great -- I bought 3 in total, different styles and colors. They are like a Spanx to swim in, but not quite as tight around the middle. Skirt is a nice length, not too long or too short. I'm 5'9" and top comes up to about an inch below my bra band. No bare skin shows with a tankini top.
NOTE TO LE: Please sell more solid-color (black, navy and other colors) tankini tops in normal cup sizes -- most of those you do sell in solids are the D+ cup styles.

I really like the high waist of this skirt. It's a great looking skirt. The only thing that I "negative" is the length. It hits about mid thigh on me and I'm 5'4". To be honest, I don't really think that's a negative though because it's nice for modesty, especially if you are on the larger side and would like to make sure that more of your thighs are covered. Also, if you are taller, the length would be perfect (at least to me). I will be recommending this to my other friends who are looking for a high waisted skirt.

Finally!!! A tankini bottom that slenderizes and doesn't expose my middle!
I am too long for a regular one piece suit. I have purchased your Long suits but have wanted a tankini. The typical hipster bottoms leave too much middle exposed or else they create a "muffin top". I will order more of these high rise swimsuit bottoms when I need more suits. We live in suits on the weekends at the lake so this is a perfect solution for swimming and hanging out all day. Love it!!

Perfect fit. I can wear these with several different swim tops I have.
This item fits well and is very comfortable. I wore these yesterday for the first time. One of my friends asked me where I purchased them and is 'jonesin' for some just like them.

So glad I found this swim skirt!
I ordered this item in three sizes 16 (my size), 18 (in case 16 was too small) & 14W. After looking in stores at the available swim skirts I thought I would never find one that was longer than a mini skirt! This skirt is perfect! I am tall (5'7") and not a swimsuit model. This skirt is about 3 inches above my knee and the high midriff is great. It does not roll down, is very comfortable. Both the 16 & 18 fit fine. The 18 is a little looser but I figured I would keep it anyway. The 16 is perfect. I would say these are very true to size. Great quality also. Hurrah for Lands End!

Wore it under my wetsuit!
I was a little hesitant about buying this swim mini, but really wanted something that was supportive and comfortable while wearing a wetsuit for scuba diving. While it took a little work to figure out how to tuck it in to the wetsuit without catching in the zipper, I finally got it. The best part was that when I took the wetsuit off, I had the coverage of my thighs and bottom taken care of immediately by the skirt! And I didn't need to carry around a pair of water shorts or a cover up. The tankini always rode up in my wetsuit, but the swim mini always stayed in place. So even if the tankini had ridden above my waistline, the swim mini had me covered! My new favorite swim bottom! And way better than a one-piece when needing to use the restroom!!!!!

I am 5'3 and 185lbs. Used the fit guide & am very pleased that it fits perfectly! No riding of the "panties". The skirt is a great length to hide my thighs, but not in the way when I swim. The top of the skirt fits just under my bra, but never rolls down. It is snug, but not restrictive. I even felt comfortable enough to wear this into a few stores at the beach after swimming!
