Women's L.L.Bean Mix-and-Match Swim Collection, Mid-Rise Skort is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 55.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from it's a keeper This is my first LL Bean suit, I usually go with a competitor that has a huge selection, but I decided to try this skort with the matching striped top. After reading the other suit reviews, I went a size up, which was a good decision: I usually wear a 16, I ordered an 18. (I usually order L in LL Bean bottoms, and XL in tops.) It fits very well! My favorite part about them is that the leg holes are appropriately stretchy & comfy. The skirt does flair a little more than I would like, but not too much. I am 190lbs and 5'3", not an easy size to work with, but this suits is flattering. Wish the skort was a tad longer, but it will work.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Short Skort I usually prefer swim separates, as I can mix and match different pieces. I like the coverage of a skirt/skort, in the hip/thigh area. This one was a little too short for my comfort level though. I am a 16 or 18, with most of that in my middle. It fit well enough, but it had too much volume. When I put the sport scoop neck tank on with it, too much of the skort fabric was "trapped" under the top. I prefer a straighter skirt, with less "pleating", I guess. I am returning the skort, but keeping the tank.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable even when wet In the past I've found skirted bottoms clingy and uncomfortable when wet. This skort has ended that problem for me. The skirt is more flounced and therefore not so clingy. The fit is flattering and comfortable. I also bought the Mix-and-Match Sweetheart navy/white polka dot tankini top - the skort is navy - and am very pleased with the set. (I'm 5'4", weigh 140 lbs and bought both pieces in size 12.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit I needed swim wear for a pool exercise class. This "skort" fits well and the skirt is long enough to cover my upper thighs, (for obvious reasons) without being so long as to restrict movement. I found the size fits true to size-very comfortable. I got the Navy blue color which goes "swimmingly" with the printed tank top to go with it. The woman who helped me with my purchase over the phone, really listened to my fitting issues and made this perfect suggestion!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous! I've worn bikinis most of my life but when I saw this swim skort with the matching polka dot tankini top, it looked so doggone cute AND sexy that I had to try it (I bought it in jade since that color looks great on me). It exceeded my expectations plus more! I typically wear a size 6 on most things but I am long-waisted so I did a size 6 in the skort and a size 8 for the tankini. Perfect! It is an extremely well made suit - fits like a glove. Thank you, LL Bean!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Be aware of the length FYI, the waistband is about 1-1/2 inches wide and the total length from top of waistband to bottom of skirt is 14"- a fairly frumpy length. I thought I could deal with it, but the skirt felt heavy and dragged against my legs in the water. When I got out of the pool, the long skirt was uncomfortably heavy until I wrung it out. LLBean should include the skirt length in the product descriptions. And I paid full price for something I now must tailor.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from returned This item was returned because the skirt has way too much fabric. It would be lovely to wear pool side, but is not attractive or comfortable floating up around you in the pool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great style, but too tight It's a really cute bottom as swimwear. The fabric is really good. However, it fits smaller and tighter than I'd anticipated so I will be exchanging the size for one larger.
