Love this on my little girl as it keeps her shoulders from getting sunburned and there is no gaping. Quite durable and dries quickly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LightLuggage Attractive drape when dry, but....
This swim-shirt has an attractive drape when it's dry, but it's not snug enough to avoid floating up in the water. My daughter has average waist for her height. If she wears this for swimming, she needs to have another layer underneath, which wasn't the case with our previous LLBean swimshirts purchases.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TheAussieBrooklynMum The ideal cute swim top
My 6-y-old daughter is going through a super-picky phase, and it's been nigh impossible to find her a swimsuit she likes. She gravitated towards swim tops and bikini bottoms, and would NOT give up on an LL Bean size 3 top she was still wearing, despite the agony getting it over his size 6 head! I then had the brainwave of going to the LL Bean website and looking for something similar - and presto! We found it in styles and colors she liked. Unfortunately it was not available in her size, so we had to get a size 10, but she loves it and I figure that's shopping DONE for another 5 years.
While I was online, I added a few swim tops for myself, on a whim that they might be just what I was looking for. When they arrived and I decided they were not perfect for me, I was a little surprised at the returns fee (as I am getting used to 'free shipping AND free returns') but it was a reasonable fee at that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Swimmer232323 Good protection - but not white
I have it in blue and white. Blue is great, fits well and gives good protection but the white was stained by sunscreen in the first use. I now have a white shirt with green stains - basically unusable.

i have a daughter who is 9 years old and 5'1" tall with a size 10 women's shoe. Swim weird is nothing short of a total pain every year. FINALLY i found the store that has swim wear that is age appropriate and fits nicely and she likes it and it's reasonably priced. Dreams do come true.

Another good quality LL Bean item. Well made and good materials coupled with sun protection mean it's a win-win. True to size and the material is stretchy, so no binding under arms while playing in or by the water. Very nice, indeed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stayawhile Love this!
My daughter (now 5 yrs) wore this top two summers in a row. I just bought her the next size up for this summer. We love that it isn't too tight, especially around the neck. Most rash guards have mock turtlenecks, but this crew-style neck works better for us.

Ordered this because my daughter outgrew last years. This is LLBean's great quality. You can't beat the quality of the kids swimwear. My daughter's usually get 2 years wear out of them and then we can pass them on to someone else!

Fantastic! Bought 2 after a weekend at OOB in Maine resulted in "boogie board rash"; no complaints from the kids, eases up on the sunscreen ritual which makes everyone happier. Looking forward to another weekend beach get-away to try them out against the sand/salt combo. Couldn't be happier so far.
