My grand daughter wanted this fin, and her mother gave me a heads-up when I asked about birthday gift ideas... The find fit her beautifully... And once she figured out just how to put her feet in the little sock inserts in the tail, she was all set. You kind of roll it down like a sock, put your feet in, and then "pull it up from the bottom" like (OK, this might seem a little bit like TMI...but it is true) it pull on like panty hose! And the top is well above the waist, so it is secure once on.

My grand daughter is 7 and she is a very good swimmer for her age. She struggled a bit with the fin in the water, at first. But soon, she picked up the needed "dolphin kick" technique and she was under water and moving like she had really nice swim fins on. After about 20 minutes, she was swimming with it as a natural extension of her legs.

The fin was also not to be abused and dragged on dry land, cement. And we did buy the suggested repair kit, just in case. But it was never needed, at least that weekend! The material is durable while light and thin and fitting...impressive. The fin is clearly built to hold up, even with some expected abuse.

I am glad they made the Fin well. You have to pay a little bit, but you get what you pay for. I guess if you are planning to buy a Fin? If you are between sizes? Get the smaller size. My grand daughter is very trim and happened to hit the size right on. But it is obvious that the body of the Fin, the part that goes over the legs and waist, is stretchy and can expand, and could have accommodated a little bit bigger girl. And you want it tighter than looser. So, go with the smaller size to be on the safe side.

All systems go on the Fin Fun Mermaid Tail.....quality, fun, durable, you get what you pay for.
