Rated 5 out of 5 by PearlsMom Just right
This bottom fit me just right. The waistline was just below my waistline, not down at my hips which would have created muffintop. The length was perfect. Would be great if Bean would list lengths as part of the garment description, this runs 13-3/4" from top to bottom in size 14. I tried several bottoms from another company that starts with 'L" and their waistlines ran at the bikini bottom line, and they were either too short at 12" or too long at 14" skirt lengths. Hides that bulge where your thighs emerge from your bottoms - not my best asset at 60. Now I feel cute and confident that I won't make my grandkids go "Eww!" The top fit perfectly also but that's another review.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mavin Fit beautifully
I bought the fuchsia berry skirted bottom and the fuchsia tankini top to match. I really liked the fit and quality of the fabric in the swim suit bottom (but not the quality of the elastic which I'll explain). I like the way the suit fits comfortably at the waist.
I gave the skirted bottom two stars because even though I washed it by hand, the elastic slipped and folded. The elastic had a permanent crease. I like the suit so much that I exchanged it rather than return it, but I will be ever so careful when washing the replacement. The waist should have had either a different kind of elastic or stitching to keep it from twisting.
I bought a size 10, as I have my other LLBean swim suits. I have a long torso, so I like the two piece suits and the cute skirt hides some of my imperfections.

Rated 2 out of 5 by swimsuitshopper362 item size smaller than other brands' 6-8, 8-10
The swimsuits were much smaller than the 6-8, 8-10 they were supposed to be. Will be returning these.

Agree with other reviewers that this is just right. Covers without looking dowdy. Don't change a thing, LLbean.

This skirt was terrific. The fit was great (ordered a 16). Material was lovely and the cut of it was enough to be modest but not get in the way of movement. Just what I was looking for (both form and functional). And I like the color too. Have used at the pool, at the beach and washed it with no issues (still looks great). I would definitely recommend it!
The only thing is that typically I am in jeans/pants anywhere from curvy 12 to 16 so for those buying this skirt, just be aware. I have a couple other LL Bean pants and they are also in the 16 or L category. Sizes are so variable now that you have to be ready to go down or up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by suzieshopper2013 second try hopeful better
I ordered this swim skirt in mid may because I do water exercise class and contrary motion in the lazy river 3-4 days per week. By mid July I noticed the back pant panel had thinned to see-thru. I was fortunate to call and receive a replacement in another color as it was no longer available. So far I have worn it three times, rinsing each time as usual and it seems fine. I have 2 other swim skirt styles which I've had for a few seasons so I am certain the material in that bolt or part of the bolt was not the usual quality. Good fit, nice look and comfortable even when jumping out of the water for exercising.
