Rated 4 out of 5 by AnnieinNJ Love it
I love this swim skirt and it fits perfectly except when wet. It is a little bigger when it gets wet and I may buy the smaller size next time. The quality is excellent and worth the $.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mamree Don't like waistband
The waistband keeps twisting inside the casing of suit. Very annoying and will not flatten out . Always love my LL Bean skirted bottoms but this one is not the same as past waistbands. ....

I have many sets of LLBean swimwear. I've owned and worn the BeanSport regular bottom for many months. These skirted bottoms are of the same good quality and true-to-size fit. The fuchsia berry color is pretty. But I do not like the wide elastic waistband - it twists around inside the casing and is difficult to straighten so it will lay flat again. Then when I pull the bottoms on, the elastic waistband gets all twisted again. Annoying. Fortunately, I wear them with a tankini top so no one else knows that it looks funky. I wish LLBean would change this feature, then I would give them 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LuvToWander Finally, too!
After ordering and trying on MANY different color and size combinations, (THANK YOU LL Bean for your GREAT return policy,) I finally hit the jackpot with this skirted bottom and a coordinating top. I will not be constantly tugging at it to keep it from riding up. I look forward to many worry free times at the beach this summer!

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.
