Rated 3 out of 5 by MAmom2 runs short/small
My daughter loves the look of her suits, but they run small. I have twice bought matching suits and long sleeve swim tops and while the top fits fine (albeit with long sleeves) the suit is always a year or more too small. Buy a suit a year or two bigger than you think you will need for a better fit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GrammaNanna Wedgie cut for toddler
This is a lovely bathing suit for my granddaughter who is a typical size 4. She is not overweight nor thin. The problem with this bathing suit is the high cut thigh fit. This results in the tendency for almost a wedgie and my granddaughter is constantly pulling the bottom down.
She seems to forget about this once in the water.
Perhaps the designers at LLBean should try fitting this on a toddler before they are sold.
I would not buy this from the internet had i known the high cut and

Rated 4 out of 5 by kbbvr Definitely runs small, but love the 50+UVB
I have bought all these suits over the last three years. Always having to purchase a year larger in size due to the suits running small. My daughters are both "average" size in all their clothing. 3 year old wears a 3T in everything. 13 mo old wears a 12-18 mo in everything. Ordered to their sizes, and had to return both swimsuits each time. (I forgot year to year). SO, returning them again this year and purchasing the next size up. Hope this helps.
AND RASH GUARD SHIRTS definitely run too big, arms are long, but in the sun/pool/boat, appreciate that cause it covers their hands, and in the pool, when the back of the shirt rises from the water, it still covers the majority of their back. Were it "just right" or too small, it may not cover as much, or as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LJohnson2 Sized incorrectly
My daughter wears 18-24 months in every brand. She is 18mos old and I ordered the 2T so that it would fit all summer. It arrived too small so I just ordered a 3T. I also ordered the rash guard in a 2T and that has plenty of room for the summer and maybe longer. That is sized correctly.
The unfortunate part is that returns are not free to ship back and the bathing suit really isn't sized appropriately

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ilovebean54 cute but runs small
My daughter is 21 months and an averge size toddler. Ordered the 2T since that's the size that was supposed to fit her according to the size chart but it was too small. Going to exchange for a larger size. Cute swimsuit though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AuntieJen Super cute, Perfect for my 2 year old daughter!
Love this swimsuit!!! Everything about it is top-quality -- the fabric, the fit, the fun and colorful print, the UPF 50 sunscreen. The straps stay on her shoulders without pulling. It does run a bit small. I tried a 2T and a 3T and the 3T fit her perfectly, and she's an average sized 2 year old. We tried other brands and none other offered this fit, quality, and value for the price. LL Bean makes the best products for all seasons! Please keep coming up with more great products for kids. I only wish the rashguard top wasn't sold out in her size in the fish pattern!

Love the suit and the colors. Fits well once I found the right size. My daughter is 17 months but weighs less than 20 lbs and about 31 in tall. The weight was less than the size recommendation and the height was witinin the size for the 12-18 month size but the suit was too small from shoulder to the legs. Exchanged it for a 2T size and fit was much better.
