Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and stylish:) I am very fair skinned (and blonde)---and spend a lot of time out-of-doors. Tired of always having to bathe in sunscreen, it's nice to have the option to wear sun-protective garments that are high quality, comfortable, not too hot --AND stylish. Most of the lineup available at Coolibar---meets and exceeds my expectations. I bought this cover-up and another hooded one (more like a sport top). Both fit well and are super comfy. I've now run in the hooded shirt several times...including one very hot/sunny day---and over 10k. It was just great. Protected me from the sun and wicked the moisture quite well. The sizes fit as one would expect. I'm not very tall (5'3"), but busty---and the length is good. I also like that Coolibar doesn't make the upper arm sleeve and shoulder too tight. Lovely product. Highly recommended. I usually wear an 8 or 10 (if I want looser) and a medium did the trick.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed The material is heavier than I expected and doesn't hang well. I thought it would be like RM 06928 (Hope this number is right. Can't read garment too well.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy comfort Super comfortable for walking on the beach, playing in the sand. Not too short, not too long. Love the ruching on the sides to shorten for swimming/wading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and very functional! I bought this shirt for a trip to a preppy club in Antigua where you are expected to look nice when walking around the beach area. The cut is attractive and the salmon pink color is cheerful. I took a 45 minute swim at 3pm and was completely unscathed by the sun. I am a size 6 (5'7" 127 pounds) and the S fit perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank god! Bought this after searching high and low for somewhat attractive SPF gear all over the internet. It almost doesn't exist. I purchased this for a boat trip in SW Florida and it was perfect. I wore it as a tunic over a bikini. I get pretty unpleasent rashes from the sun and this was like a prayer finally answered. 7 hours on a boat with no sunscreen underneath and ZERO burn, ZERO rash. Thank you coolibar - I'll be purchasing another ASAP. Stats - approx 5'5" 118lbs and got the XS. XS was figure hugging while the SM left some room to hide the flaws. Only settled on the XS bc I didn't want to be weighed down by extra fabric in case I went overboard. ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ruche swim shirt I just wore this on a beach trip and got many compliments , the color is beautiful and the fit is very flattering! Also, for,the first time in 6 months I didn't get sun poisoning so it protects!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what i needed I bought this to use more as a coverup than to actually swim in. I've only worn it twice but it's definitely a keeper! The first time I wore it, I ended up swimming in it anyway. I wore it over my one-piece skirted suit and it felt weird over that. I think over a more streamlined suit, it would have been more comfortable. My only complaint was the zipper - the shirt kept creeping up my neck and the zipper kept poking into me. As a coverup, it's great. It's a heavy fabric and gets a bit warm, but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be (it was about 95 degrees with a heat index just over 100 the day I wore it.) I love how long it is and the adjustable sides. I got lots of compliments on it from my sons who don't care at all about how clothes look. The best part was NO SUNBURN. I can burn within 15 minutes of being outside and this shirt does its job well. I'm looking forward to much more use out of it!
