Rated 5 out of 5 by Shoppingforkidsisfun Great fit
Very happy with this swim top for my 8 year old daughter- size 8 fits perfect. I liked the purple striped pattern so much I ordered the splatter print also. Very age appropriate- I like the prints of these as they offer more variety ( splatter, stripes, plaid etc...). Also very happy that you can order the pieces separately in case your child wears one size on top and another on the bottom.
Please put photos of what the Back of the swimsuit looks like as well as the front and on the model, this is helpful for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ahr002 Great top
This is a great top to go with the bottoms - we bought this top and the rash guard T. Both are great and my 4 year old loves being able to choose.

Ordered a size 10 for my long-waisted and slender 9 year old. Fits perfectly. Love the blue stripes and worth every penny for a a stylish and age-appropriate suit.

This is the fifth year I am buying LLBean suits for my girls. They stand the test of time and can be passed down from one child to the next. My girls love the style of this suit and I love that it is both fun and conservative. It does not stretch out and the colors do not fade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cyrinda Excellent purchase
It's the hardest thing in the world to find bathing suits for girls that are age-appropriate and not too flashy or flowery or busy. I really appreciate the simple design. My daughter is wearing them for the second year in a row and they are holding up nicely and the color is still in tact.
I bought this bathing suit in both blue and pink for my six-year-old daughter last summer and plan to buy them in bigger sizes this summer so she'll have them for the next couple of summers.
Thank you, LL Bean. I really appreciate this product.

Finally, found a suit for my daughter that looks age appropriate, fits properly and has a cute design to boot! The colors are just as vibrant in person as they are on my computer. My 8.5 year old daughter is about average height, short torso, with a little extra belly and tush, and the size 10 fits wonderfully. The top is long enough to cover the belly with the matching skirt, and it doesn't ride up when she is in the pool or running around. It is much better quality than some competitor's suits and seems like it will last. Since my kids are in the pool almost every day in the summer, I only wish they offered these in more colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by macgirl Love this swimsuit
This is the second year we have bought this swimsuit style. It is a nice fitting suit. It stays in place no matter if our 8 year old is in/out of the pool or running along the beach. The colors are vibrant and the one from last year doesn't appear to have faded at all. She says it is comfortable. We paired it with the matching skirt and it is a nice, modest swimsuit for a young lady. We bought the size 10 this year, one size up from last year. Our dtr is an average height and weight. I would say this swimsuit runs just a tad bit on the small side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stitcher888 Girls BeanSport Y-Back Top
My daughter had this suit last summer (paired with the skirt) and didn't want anything other than the same style for this summer. Very cute, long enough to cover the tummy even when she raises her arms, Y-back styling keeps straps in place. Colors stay bright all summer - last year's suit is just as bright as this year's - although I always rinse out chlorine after swimming in a pool.

love this top. I'm very conservative about what my 5 year old wears (I don't believe she should be wearing bikinis). So I love how this top is long enough to cover the belly. I did order a size up to make sure of that, but that may be just my taste. I wanted to make sure it overlapped the skirt I bought with it. She looks soo cute and proper!
