Rated 1 out of 5 by from Feels heavy and claustrophobic I just received this item in navy blue as well as the navy blue swim capris. I found that it felt very heavy and claustrophobic and I instantly felt very warm in the short time that I had it on. The seam under the bust is too high and the collar is very tight. Also, I was disappointed that the colour was not really a match to the swim capris which I really liked. I am reluctant to return them as I live in Canada and found that in addition to the US exchange and shipping/handling which I was prepared to pay, I was charged an additional $53.66 for customs which made an already overly expensive purchase absolutely outrageous. I am not willing to take a chance on more hidden expenses upon returning this item so I'm stuck with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for SUP (stand up paddleboarding) I bought this for stand up paddleboarding, and found that I could sit on the beach in style, paddle, and even wear it under a seat harness when windsurfing. I wear it with and without swim leggings. Excellent investment. I bought another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the way it covers! I was so delighted when I tried this on with the way it looks and feels. It is so comfortable and the coverage over the bum is great. I also purchased the swim capries to go with it and will be wearing it at the beach when I visit my grandchildren in Florida next week. I don't have to worry about covering so much of my skin with sunscreen. I also bought a coolibar hat. I have had 2 small skin cancer taken my face so I take sun protection seriously. The fun part is that for a 61 yr old grandma, I don't look so frumpy in this swim wear!! Thanks Coolibar !!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty but not ideal for swimming I chose this swim shirt for the length. Some parts of me are better kept from the world. While I am pleased with the length and the overall appearance of the shirt, I am very disappointed with it in the water. The bottom of the shirt floats up and makes it uncomfortable for me in the water. My solution thus far has been to tuck it into my leggings when I get in the water but that is less than ideal. I confess this may have been due to customer error in choosing sizing. Perhaps I should have gone smaller to avoid the problem? If you are going to be active in this, please consider smaller sizing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great style & protection! I bought two Ruche Swim Shirts for my trip to the Galapagos Islands; I am soooo pleased with them! They are long enough that I don't feel at all self-conscious about the size of my bum & hips. I am 5'6", 180lbs and I got the large. It feels comfortable zipped up for outside and then unzipped for when I go inside. It is nice enough that I don't feel like I have to change when I walk into a cafe for a meal. I have medical conditions that prevent me from getting sun on my body and these tops make it so easy to be protected all day; no worrying about sun screen reapplication all the time. I chose the Mint & Coral Paisley because I thought that that busy patterns would make me feel more comfortable about my size, and they do. They do not fit skin-tight, but that is what I was hoping for. They are wonderful and I will definitely buy them again- the purple one is probably next *Grin*.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great option for many situations! I bought this for a Caribbean vacation for my 25th anniversary last year, and love it! I do have one issue, though - for busty women, the seam lands right across the chest, which makes it a little awkward. For that reason, I wish they made one that did not have seams that define the chest. However, it was cool in the hot sun, warm when it was drying and I was on the windy bow of a boat, and it dried quickly. I loved the swim leggings I bought here, too! I felt modest and comfortable in all situations, except for the seam part, and was able to go from the water into other places without changing, which was wonderful. I love the ruched sides, too! It works well for a person with a very long torso without having sleeves that are too long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this top! I just recently bought this because I've been having allergic reactions to the sun and this shirt has been perfect! It's fantastic material and super light. It's really long too which is a great thing since im almost 6 ft tall.
