Women's Slender Ultra High Waist SwimMini Swim Skirt
I am unhappy with the fit of this piece.
This piece fits right up under the breast line, which is probably how it is suppose to fit. However, I find it too uncomfortable. It feels too much like you are wearing spanks, not a swimsuit.

i love this skirt!
I really like this skirt. I actually own four ultra high rise swim skirts now, this being my fourth.I have tried the shape and enhance style also, which I liked a lot, as well. It is very well made, very comfortable. I noticed this one does float up a bit in the water, which i really haven't noticed on my older ones in this style, or in the shape and enhance skirts. It is not a problem for me at all, but i thought I'd mention it.
I am 5'7" with a longer torso, and the length is longer than my swim minis from other retailers(which are not high rise), but not so long as to be ridiculous. I prefer the high rise. I really feel much better about moving around in the pool with the high rise. It stays put while swimming, chasing my children, slides at the water park, everything. I feel comfortable running a little errand in this skirt before or after a trip to the pool as well. Just throw on a tank or a tee, and I'm decent.
This skirt is very well made, very sturdy, while still being light. It hasn't snagged or ripped at all, even under serious use. I recently found it pinned underneath a chair that my preschooler had dragged across the kitchen floor. I was sure it would be ripped or snagged, but it was fine.
I don't know what i did before these swim minis. I intend to keep wearing them as long as LE makes them. I would like to see more cute prints, though.

I went a size larger so it would not be too tight. It was the right choice!
I am looking forward to wearing it to the beach this weekend!

Fit very well. True to size.
Like the way the product fit. Hides my belly "roll" under the tankini. Glad I purchased it.

Did not like it...
The skirt was made of material that was thinner than any orther swimmini skirt I have purchased in the past. Also ithe skirt was flouncy which added to the widith of everything. The top part could be nice however I felt it was hot to have it on. I returned it.

So flattering and modest
Love this swim skirt! Very flattering, good coverage, plus love the high waist. If you raise your arms no worry about top riding up and showing bare flesh! The swim skirt is well made of quality material. Offers control without discomfort! A winner!

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.
