Women's SwimMates Cover-up Swim Shorts
Swim briefs with no under pant?
I guess I missed this when I bought them. First I bought high rise misses when I shouldn't have. I'm a petite. They are way to big around the waist. I think I will return them. I can't get used to not having a pant under the boy shorts.

LOVE LOVE LOVE these cover up shorts!
I came back to buy another pair because I love them so much and they are unavailable:( LE pls make these same shorts next year! Pls don't change a thing! They work perfect over your mid rise swim bottoms. You can leave them on to swim if you want to. I do and they are wonderful. I do wear 2 sizes smaller in these shorts than I do in the swim bottoms. I am a 10 or 12 in the mid rise swim bottoms b/c they have such tight leg openings. I am a size 6 in these shorts. I carry most of my weight in my bottom half. But the sizing is not an issue for me. The roll top is perfect. With the top not being super tight they work perfect to let water through while swimming so they don't balloon u p! I wore these for a week at Destin Beach and they were WONDERFUL along with the mid rise swim bottoms. I have also worn them in our pool at home and they are great. I only hope they are available so I can buy up more pairs next year!

Runs Super Big!
I did not like these short. I am a huge fan of Lands' End. But the swim shorts run very big. I wear a true size 8 and the size 4 fitted me perfect but I did not like the way it fit around my waist no support a little roomy around my legs...not my favorite. Disappointed!

I took the advice of previous reviewers and ordered down a size. I am normally a size 14-16 and I ordered at size 12. It fit perfectly and was very comfortable. I have a tankini top that goes perfectly with the shorts. The shorts do not have an inner liner, so you must wear something underneath in order to not get exposed (the legs are a bit short and tend to ride up in the water). I just wear a pair of panties underneath and that takes care of that problem. I would most definitely recommend this product.

Best Swim Shorts Ever.
I am 5'6" 7 120 lbs. I need fairly small sizes. I was unable to find swim shorts that were small yet covered enough for someone my age. These swim shorts are great. Very comfortable. I have been virtually living in them. I usually take size 2 or 4. The size 2 was just right. They don't cling, they keep their shape, they wash up well. I usually like to wear a mini swimmini. I now have a choice. I can wear the swim shorts with the mid rise swim bottom. It makes swimming easier - just take off the shorts and swim. When done - just slip the shorts back on. Since they are the same material as a swim suit you don't have to worry about them getting wet. They dry quickly too. No wet clingy skirt to to deal with. (I still love the mini swimmini too!) Great for boating and wave runners too!

Runs way too big.
I ordered a size 2 and it was way too big. I did not want to return it althought the shipping is free Lands End still deducts $7 from your return total.
So I gave it to someone who wears a size 10 and it fit her, so you can imagine how big it was for me someone who is usually a small.
If you are small on top and big on the bottom then maybe you may be able to make it work for you.

Do not believe the previous reviews.
Do not believe the previous reviews saying they fit big. I now really regret not buying the size bottoms I would normally wear. I purchased 1 size smaller, as everyone said and now I have shorts that are way too tight and ride up. I am absolutely embarrassed to wear them. What a waste. I know I could return them, but I haven't been up to the hassle yet. They have such a short inseam, that I am not entirely certain that they would look decent even in my size. These are not meant for girls with thighs.

Best for Thin Women
I ordered this in size 18. It fit technically, however, it really did not cover up more than a inch in the front of my legs and of my buttock, from where my swimsuit falls. This may be great for women who are able to wear a 2-piece bikini, just to get a little more protection. Good for a trip to the ocean where wild waves can rip those bikini bottoms right down. :-) The material is thin...thinner than any of the other cover-up bottoms I have tried on (and I think I've tried them all). Very comfortable.

I wear both 8's and 10's from LE, so based on the reviews below I ordered an 8... but these are still one size too big. I'll re-order in 6 but wonder if they will then be as short as the bottoms I wish to cover...? If the coverage is there, I will use these a lot.
PS Two things that I think other reviewers may have nissed in the product description: 1) these are coverups not swim bottoms 2) they have a fold-over waist band.

Needs inner panty!
These shorts are nice, but they seriously need an inner panty of some kind. Most swim suits have a liner in the lower part, but this does not. The leg openings are quite loose. If you do anything at all active in them, you feel very exposed. Since I bought them for a swim exercise class, I don't think I'll be comfortable using them unless I wear a leotard underneath.
