Not For Beach
While this swimsuit is quite beautiful, I am glad I didn't pay full price (I got 2, one for each of my girls). After just one use at the beach they were ruined with sand grains all embedded into the suit. I soaked them for a long time, rinsed then washed. Still has the sand embedded.
This wasn't the worst part. The crotch part is horribly designed where huge amounts of sand gets stuck into it and it is a pain to remove and
and wash out.
I would be happy to take pics of how horrible these swimsuits look. I was really hoping to use them for more than 3 beach trips. But I am sad to say they will end up in the trash.
I will never buy another swimsuit from Hanna Andersson, which Is unfortunate as I am a fan of their clothes (uniform, holiday outfits, every day wear). :(

just some pointers
overall love the product
things I would change to make it better
1) better fabric or some other way that will not trap sand between the colored fabric and the inner white fabric. My daughter will fall in the sand, and we see the black specks trapped within the two fabrics
2) not sure why, but the ruffle top sags in the middle, the fabric is not flush with my daughters chest. Either she is skinny or when the fabric is wet the waternweight causes the sag.

Great design and high quality
Got 3 of these suits, 2 pink, 1 turquoise. The color depth is great and the fabric is high quality and lined. I was very pleased with this purchase.

great for pool, not for beach
This is a very very cute swimsuit that fits perfectly and is well made like all Hannas. The only issue is that when worn on the beach, sand gets between the outside and inner lining of the suit and WON'T COME OUT. No amount of hand or machine washing can get it out; it looks dirty (at least the pretty pink one does) because there is sand trapped in it and probably would leak some sand into a pool if worn now. Great for pool; would not recommend for beach unless you only ever intend to use it forevermore at the beach.

Cute and Adorable
It was nice to find a swimsuit that still looks nice in a larger size. It's adorable and sweet looking on my 7 year old.

Might want to size up for tall girls
My daughter just turned three years old. She is 39.5" tall and 32 pounds. I ordered a 100 in both the pink and the blue based on the size charts. If she wears the suit without a swim diaper, there is a bit of room left in the seat for growth, but the elastic on the shoulder straps already digs into her shoulders and leaves marks. This is the case with both suits, so I don't think I just happened to get one that ran small. I am fairly sure that a 110 would be slightly large if we could try it, but better that than too tight and not comfy. We will save the 100s for my younger girl to grow into because these suits are cute and well made.

Very cute. Fits both my girls.
Love how it fits snug so the girls are covered up at pool and beach.

Super cute- runs small
The bathing suit is great quality & very cute. However, it does run very small. According to Hanna's measurements my tall 5 year old is a 120, yet 130 fits her best. I ordered the 130 assuming it would fit, but was small through the torso. Had to return it as 140 is sold out.
