Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keeps cool in the heat I purchased two of these shirts to wear when going for walks outside and thought they would come in handy when I go on vacation. I'm heading to Central America and plan to do some hiking and want to wear long sleeves to help keep the sun and bugs off. ??I tried the shirt out this weekend and found that I stayed cool when wearing it in the sun. ??I initially ordered mediums because I tend to fit between small and medium and thought it would be safer to order up. ??I was swimming in them. ??The smalls fit great. ??If you are between sizes, you may want to order down a size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fashion Staple This is a fashion staple; a basic that feels like lightweight supima cotton. It runs large, for example, I ordered both this and the crew neck versison. I had to send the crew neck back bc a little tight around the bust but this one was just fine. Love it! Wish it came in Plus sizes tho as I am borderline and most American women are too. (I am a melanoma pt and have gained wt due to meds etc. Many women have their own issues.) The XXL in this fit fine tho so I encourage you to try it, it will quickly become a staple. Wear alone, as a layer or with a scarf to jazz it up. Perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality and Enduring Fit once you find it. I like these shirts so much I now own two jackets and four long sleeve v-neck shirts. I first ordered the round neck in a large and found it fit considerably tighter than the v neck large, so I exchanged the round neck style for more v necks. There is no shrinkage in hem and sleeve length, and the color holds up just fine through many washings on gentle and occasional dryer spins on gentle. When I just hang them up to dry, they require little to no ironing, depending on how picky I feel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Product for Southern California Sunshine! I bought three of these long sleeve tees because I have sun-damaged skin from too much beach time as a kid. Not only do the tees protect my now delicate skin, but they keep me cool too. Plus, they are flattering. I love them and will probably buy a couple more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Top Size is a true fit, the ruched sides are perfect for a slimming look. ??I am always challenged to find modern, up to date pieces I can wear to swim. This is a must for all women who are looking to cover up for medical or religious reasons. Paid to have shipped over night so I could have in the Arizonia heat and was I pleased I got this! ?? A must have for Muslim women, you can't miss with this one. ??Finally a swim shirt, that hit all points, appropriate coverage, light weight, MADE FOR ACTIVE WOMEN. Oh, and yes I have washed and dried....NO Shrinkage, looks good as new. ??THANK YOU TO WHOEVER DESIGNED THIS TOP. ??

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage and fit; Long-lasting, too! I bought my first ruched swim shirt 4-5 years ago. ??Every time I wear it I get asked about it and where I got it. ??I love it. ??I am getting ready to purchase my second one as my old one has some thin spots on it from so much wear over the years. ??Some people might think that this would be hotter to wear in the summer, but I actually think it is cooler than my short sleeved coolibar swim shirt. ??Your arms stay so cool with the long sleeves. ??I LOVE THIS SHIRT! ??It is worth the money for me. ?? Another reason I love this shirt is that it is easy to nurse in when you have a little baby. ??You still get great coverage, too, so you don't feel like you are exposing yourself. ??

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RUCHE SWIM SHIRTS, PERFECT! I buy new ones of these every year; I am full figured and they make everyone look great, plus they provide excellent coverage. I am a melanoma pt and these shirts along with swim legs and a hat allow me to still enjoy a day at the beachw ith my family, completely protected. Truth be told these shirts are so flattering and comfortable, I wear them just to bang around the Boardwalk even.They have new colors/prints every season tho so make sure to get yours as soon as they come out or the new fun colors/prints might get sold out. Thank you Coolibar, my fave product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shirt! Bought one last year and when I got it I decided that it was so cute that I had better order another, which I did. Then I went on a winter holiday and was wishing I had more of them so I ordered two more when I got home. They are perfect for resort wear, you can wear them in the water over your bathing suit or anywhere else you go at the resort because you are totally covered. I am fairly short so they fit me like a dress and I was even tempted to wear one out for supper at a la carte restaurant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big fan and a great alternative to skimpy swimwear I bought this shirt two months ago in the navy with the white piping. I'm very happy with the product. I wore it to the beach almost right after receiving it. It dries fast and looks good. I'm 5'3" and approx 114 lbs. I got the pxs and it's true to size. It's pretty fitted though, so if you want something that's a little looser, size up. The material is stretchy but seems durable. I got the black leggings with it and I am overall very happy with my Coolibar products. The shipping took about 5 days which is what the website said so no problems there either.??

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond expectations this is the first SPF shirt I have purchased. everything about it is beyond my expectations: the stylish fit, the beautiful bamboo fabric design, the buit in adjustmentss for length and coverage at the hemline and the neck. Most swoim shirts look like tee shirts. the Coolibar - Ruche Swim Shirt is in a class of its own!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfied I'm very happy with my swim shirt! ??I'm an XL and it fit nicely-a relaxed, comfortable fit-- not fitted. ??The neck is high enough that you don't need to put sun screen and the zipper allows you to open it for a v neck effect. ??Although the picture shows it worn a a dress , I bought it to wear as a shirt--so I pulled up the sides to upper hip length which creates a little more ruche on the sides which helps to hide my tummy bulge. ??The ruche also helps to give it shape so it doesn't look boxy . ??The material is like other swim shirts--you always need to wear a bathing suit top under it, and the azure blue gives it a cheerful and youthful appearance instead of looking matronly so you don't look matronly. ??I am very happy with this shirt and would definitely invest in another !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it, but... I bought a ruche swim shirt last year. I love the way it looks but when I wear it in the water, the lower half floats up and I have to hold the material down. I still wear it, though because it's prettier than any other option that covers me. I wear it with the long swim trunks.
