Ordered these the moment I saw them, to add to my many SFA pieces. While I like the bike shorts, I was really looking everywhere on the net for this length of swim leggings. Well, the moment I put these on, I was thrilled. I am a size 14, and the fit is perfect. The leg length is pretty much as the photo shows ( I'm 5' 3 1/2") and fits not too tight and not loose at all. When I paired it with one of my SFA Aquabelle racer-back tankini tops, the overall coverage was also perfect - the top came down long enough to cover the crotch area. I plan to wear these with a high waisted swim bottom underneath ( some kind of swim bottom should be worn with it, I think). I then tried on one of my Land's End SPF ruched swim tops with it and , wow! What a great look! I have one more vacation coming up and am looking forward to wearing these if I swim. For women my age (almost 64), a modest but stylishly athletic look to swim in is so cool to find. I hope SFA and Aquabelle keep up the good work. The overall quality of these leggings is very, very good.
