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 these I bought a couple of these and LOVE them. I live in the desert and ride in high temps, but these are lightweight, comfortable, and cool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this swim shirt! I got melanoma in my early 20's and had to switch from bikinis to rash guards and swim capris. I has a short sleeve swim shirt that I bought from Coolibar last year that I loved, but quickly wore through, so I bought this for the upcoming summer. It's very stylish. I don't feel silly wearing it when I'm with my bikini clad clan. It's especially nice for tall/long torso-ed people. I will say that the picture makes the color look salmon, but it's more orange in person. Still love it though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable style combined with sun protection Provided total sun protection, looked great, dried quickly. Flattering fit (I am 5'7", 145 pounds and wore a Medium) and so much better than spending 20 minutes applying (and reapplying) lotion. Definitely recommend this.??

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this swim shirt!! I have never been so happy with a swim suit purchase. I am fair skinned and I am so happy to not have to slather myself with sunscreen. I love the fabric and the fit. I am a curvy woman and I do not feel uncomfortable in this shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, Love This is 5th one i have purchased in 4 years. I LOVE them. Especially since I am Middle aged and they cover my midriff . I have told many of my finds about them and share the catalogs. The ONLY down side is the EXPENSE... I would own several more. Since I also wear them to do yard work in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute swim shirt This is a lovely swim shirt! I especially loved it in the berry violet, as it complimented my dark hair. However, I also ordered this in the regular swim shirt style and prefer it over the ruche for two reason. One, the empire waist on the ruche swim shirt doesn't compliment a slim hourglass figure as well as the regular tightly fitted swim shirt. Two, the ruche shirt is much longer and since I indeed to wear my swim shirts with swim tights I don't need the longer fabric covering my hips and upper thighs. I'd recommend this for those who want a less body conscious style or those with a little bit of a tummy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nearly Perfect This is my second swim shirt. It is comfortable, covers lumps & bumps well without sticking like glue when you get out of the water. Love the ruche, too, as it too aids in hiding middle age flab. It's soft and comfortable, protects my sun-sensitive skin and I am able to swim in our pool during pre-vampire hours again. The only improvement that would be really helpful would to be add a shelf bra. I've had to scramble around trying to find something to wear under it (we full-figured ladies dont have a spare bikini top hanging around.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like a Second Skin! I am currently wearing this in Hawaii. ??I have had some skin sensitivities to sun & sunscreen lately, and this is the perfect way to stay protected. ??It truly feels like a second skin...I hardly notice it while swimming & it dries super fast. ??Love it!!
