To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
First of all, it is so hard to find a swimsuit for my daughter, and even more so online! She's short and slim but has a chest and booty. She's 11, almost 12, not quite five feet tall, and about 90ish pounds. I'm giving all this info because I want you to pick the right size. I bought a 14 and it turned out to be a little snug. Not so much that I'm going to return it, but it probably won't last after this year. I bought another one (this design) in a 16 and it's perfect. So I definitely think they run kind of small. Both suits are really cute, so she's going to switch off with the two.
Definitely runs a bit small. Bought a size 10 for my 9-year old and, while it fits, it will only last the rest of this summer (1+ months) as it's a bit tight already. Her other swimsuits (mostly LLBean) are all size 8 and fit her fine.
