Rated 4 out of 5 by from High quality but limited colors/ prints My daughter loves hers! They perfect for summer camp and exploring when on vacation. I just wish there were more styles particularly less “girly” choices like navy, black, and some bolder prints often Limited to boys.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect skirt, wrong size I couldn't decide which size to buy because my daughter was right between. Unfortunately I chose the Medium and she needed a small, so I had to return it. Besides that inconvenience, it is exactly what we were searching for. It's perfect for swimming and waterplay, I don't have to worry about it crawling up and giving her a wedgie or anything. I will buy more next summer I'm sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Great quality products! Swim skirt is perfect for my grandgirls, paired with the rash guard top. Ideal for Hawaii or a long day in the pool or lake. Cute, stylish, holds up well with reprated use and washings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please keep making this! I love this swim skirt! I searched high and low for a swim skirt with built in shorts. This is a stylish, modest swimsuit bottom. I will be buying it in different sizes for my daughter as she gets older.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, modest swimwear! :) I have searched high and low for modest swimwear for my girls. I was thrilled when I found these swim skirts and tops. The quality is excellent, and there are many cute designs to choose from. If you follow care instructions these swimsuits will last. Be sure to gentle wash and hang dry. DO NOT put them in the dryer. It will stretch them out and thin the material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and provides lots of coverage I purchased for my 3.5 year old daughter and she loves that it's a pink skirt and I love that it provides more coverage than the typical swimsuit bottom.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Swim Skirt print is bright and cute but the skirt is a little flimsy and droops (becomes longer) when it is wet so it doesn't look as cute when it is wet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase! My daughter loves this swim skirt! Well made and comfortable with great coverage for my curvy young lady.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome. Cute. Modest. Comfy. My 6-yr old--and her mom!!--love these swim skirts. They're super cute, and are longer than most swim skirts...more modest and less sunscreen! Plus, the shorts underneath instead of bikini briefs means no chafing of inner thighs even with eight hours of wear. Just perfect for the beach or a day in and out of the river at adventure camp.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Girls Swim skirt Very well made. Just runs a bit big. Color is very vibrant.
Date published: 2016-06-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very cute, but runs big! My daughter wears a size 7/8 in everything... tops, bottoms, etc. So, after checking the Coolibar sizing chart I also naturally ordered a Medium 7/8 since her measurements (48in tall, 50lbs) were shown to be for that size as well - but the skirt was WAY big! I then ordered a small & it fits perfectly. It just shows me that the numbers on the sizing chart are too broad & that the skirts actually come closer to fitting the 'greatest' number in the measurements listed for each individual size on the sizing chart... at least for these skirts anyway. It is a very cute skirt though & good quality despite the sizing issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Lands End!!!! I had been ordering my daughters bathing suits from Lands End and they not only changed the style, but the quality is far below what I have found upon first inspection of my daughters new suit from Coolibar. I am so pleased and she is very excited about the shorts under the skirt. Her skin is very fair and this will be perfect for summer!! Thank you so much for not only your modest style but top quality material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great fit This is the best swim skort we have found for our girls, now mom wants one too. The colors are exactly what is on line and the fit is perfect. They find them totally comfortable and we would buy them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight! Bought this for my DD and we both love it... She can still look cute and cover her behind lol, fabric is light weight so it doesn't get in her way and over all looks very cute. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modest and stylish! I just bought these a few weeks ago for my 9 and 11 yr. old girls.  They are well made, cute as can be, and modest.  I'm so glad I found these just in time for summer and they are well worth the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase Love this swim skort.. Ordered a 10-12 , size was perfect. Looks very slimming on . Also ordered a swim shirt to match. What a gorgeous outfit !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adult sizes I've been looking for this skort - but for an adult. Even this skirt over the tights would be cute. 
Date published: 2014-02-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from finally, a real "Skort" skirt with SHORTS! We've only had a chance to wear this for a weekend trip, but so far so good. Love the coverage, I searched everywhere for a swim skirt that actually did have shorts under it (so many called them "skorts" but meant there was a panty under). But I didn't want only shorts, we don't like that look either. Feminine, but not oldfashioned. Seems to be made well also, we'll see as the wearing continues!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Skort This skort is SO cute. It's mid-thigh and swingy and super comfy. A great purchase. I wanted the coverage for sun protection but my daughter wanted to be feminine, this is a great compromise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft and cute My daughter just loves her new swim skort! It is easy, soft, pretty, and stylish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent!!! I recently bought this for my daughter. She loves it. It fits well and I like that she is covered. I love the length of the skort.
