Patagonia Girls' Shell Seeker One-Piece Swimsuit

Cute Kids Suit- check the size chart.

I was wary of ordering this suit because of the prior negative reviews about the fit. However, I followed the guidance of the size chart and the L fit my tall, slim 11-yr old perfectly. Its not revealing, has very cute straps in the back and good coverage in front. I was so pleased!

So small!

Really cute bathing suit! I ordered a size 10 for my 7 year old and as other have said it could fit a 3 year old. Extremely tight & small. Such a disappointment and I expedited the shipping. I wouldn't order it.

Not very appropriate for kids

I purchased two of these for my two daughters. They go through swim suits so fast that I really wanted to find an eco-conscious option for replacing their swim wear, since it happens so often. +1 to Patagonia for making kids swim wear However, sad to say, this swim wear is something that we're only letting our girls wear at home in our pool, ... Read Morebecause the cut of this swimsuit is not very appropriate for little kids. It's fine for a mature woman showing off her figure, but for little girls, where you can see quite a bit of their butt cheeks, it would be very awkward at playdates. I'm hoping Patagonia can improve on product and adjust the fit, so that little kids can play, look and feel like little kids.

Weird Fit

Style very cute however it was way to small and tight for my 10 year old daughter. She is slightly below average height. Unfortunately she wore it into our hot tub before I caught how small it was so I can not return. If you order definitely order a size up.

Runs Extremely Small, Awkward Shape

Our 5 yo daughter is on the small end of the measurement ranges given for the size. Yet the suit was so tight on her that the shoulder straps were digging into her and if I let her wear it the seams around the rear end would surely burst. It was the appropriate size for our 3 yo although she is far, far smaller than the measurements given for that ... Read Moresize. And still I would not say it fit her well since there is a weird bunch where the strap meets the chest panel. It is an odd shape. Maybe if my 3 year old had breasts it would fit? I am a life long Patagonia lover - I wear articles that are 12+ years old and all I ask for for birthday and Christmas presents is more Patagonia! This is the only disappointment I have in their sizing. Hopefully it is a fluke. But now I am hesitant to buy more childrens items and not sure what to do about figuring out sizing...

Hi Shannon, thank you for taking the time to write us a review! We're really sorry to hear about the sizing discrepancy that you experienced with the swimsuit. We can understand being hesitant to purchase kids clothing in the future after this experience. We're always happy to discuss sizing in greater detail if you [contact us](https://help.patagonia.com/s/). We've got lots of parents working in our office who'd be more than happy to share how a certain item fit their kiddo.
