Fabric Details
Aqua SUNTECT® Helios
Our Aqua SUNTECT® Helios fabric provides medium compression for added support and shape retention. With a slick handfeel, chlorine and saltwater resistance and 4-way stretch, this breathable, quick-dry UPF 50+ fabric is designed for active water wear. We developed it as a sustainable fabric made with a recycled fiber blend and Lycra® Xtra Life™ to resist perspiration and wear from chlorinated water up to 10 times longer than most spandex.

Measure circumference of hand around fullest part just below the knuckles, excluding thumb. Use right hand if right handed, and left hand if left-handed. Measure hand in inches and refer to the sizing chart for your glove size. Use the larger number to determine your size. People with extra long fingers, or who would like a looser fit should consider ordering a size up.

PLEASE NOTE: The measurements on our size chart are very similar to most major clothing companies. However, we generally allow for a relaxed fit - geared for outdoor activity, travel or a casual outing. Pants, skirts, blouses and polo shirts have extra room for comfort and are not body hugging. 

When fitting jackets, cover-ups or any outerwear, our fit model is wearing the appropriate under layers that we would expect you to be wearing. You do not have to "size up" - we have done that for you.


Never try to measure yourself. Seek the help of a companion and use a soft tape measure.

  • Height: Stand in stocking feet, with feet together, back to the wall. Measure from top of head to the floor.
  • Arm: Bend arm to 90 degrees. Place hand on hip. Start at center of back of neck. Measure across the shoulder to the elbow and down to the wrist. Number of inches equals your sleeve length.
  • Bust/Chest: With the arms relaxed down at sides, measure fullest part of bust/chest, keeping tape parallel to floor.
  • Hip: Stand with heels together, keeping tape straight and parallel to the floor. Measure around fullest part.
  • Neck: Measure around base of the neck (the lowest point of the neck). Number of inches equals the neck size.
  • Inseam: Take a pair of pants that fits you well. Measure from the crotch seam to the bottom hem. Number of inches equal inseam length.
  • Rise: Start the tape at the center back waist, run the tape between your legs, pulling comfortably at the crotch and up your natural waist. Total measurement is your rise.
  • Waist: Measure around your waist, against your skin (not over your shirt or pants) at the height you normally wear your pants.
  • Head: Measure around your head, from the center of your forehead, keeping tape straight and parallel to the floor. Measure around fullest part.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these swim leggings! Several years ago I was in a deep water aerobics class when the instructor on the pool deck jumped in the pool with her clothes on. What? She introduced me to Coolibar. I purchased several items for paddleboarding and found them SO comfortable I ended up wearing them a lot. I had 3 pairs of identical black swim leggings, which I recently discovered you don't make anymore. This was after I gave one pair to my granddaughter when we were headed out to paddleboard. I was so sad, but she loved them and I couldn't ask for them back. Your fabulous customer service person helped me find these Santa Cruz Swim Leggings. They are close enough and I may even like them a little better, so I placed an order for more! They are so comfortable, look great, have the cool zipper pocket in the back, and I'm ready for any adventure that presents itself.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good quality material I am 5'1" 146 lbs, I have been buying swim tights & long swim pants for many years from Coolibar in size L & love them & wear them out eventually. New ones, gusset to short, legs too wide & long, waits too loose,hips too wide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks and Feels GREAT! I bought these at the beginning of summer based on a friend's recommendation. I am SO, SO glad that I did! Not only do I not have to mess around with applying and reapplying sunscreen; I feel so CONFIDENT in these leggings. I wear them with a tankini top I've had for a couple summers now. With no spider veins and cellulite on show, I actually feel good in a swim suit again! The slight compression is pretty wonderful, too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great basic swim tights I prefer wearing swim leggings and long-sleeve rash guards over worrying about applying and reapplying sunscreen. The Santa Cruz model is a nice, substantial tight with a good fit that I find mostly true-to-size. I have pool cycled in them and worn them to the beach and am pleased with its performance. If anything, I would prefer a high-waisted version for a smoother-looking line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Swim Leggings! Whether hit or miss (not every item of clothing will hit all the marks for everyone) two things that Coolibar does well: 1) flat lock seams and 2) pockets. I get so annoyed that women's swimwear does not come with pockets! What am I supposed to do with the locker key at public swimming pools??? Answer: Coolibar! I'm so happy these pants have a zipper pocket in them! It's about the size of a credit card, but at least now I don't have to safety pin pool locker keys to my swim suit, and hope it doesn't get torn off my suit if I go on a waterslide. Aside from the pocket, these leggings reach my ankles when dry, they do get pushed up a bit above my ankles when I'm swimming (I wear them to water aerobics at a local outdoor pool) and I find the same issue with these as with any other pair of pants in that the back can come down a bit when bending over, so I sometimes have to tug them back up. I am 5'9, currently 185 pounds and I bought size large as fabric tends to stretch out a little when wet. While they fit a bit tighter than I typically wear when dry, I haven't had a problem with them falling down when swimming in the pool. They do have a drawstring cord in the waistband, but I purposely bought a size smaller than my usual in hopes I wouldn't need to use it, and that has solved that problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and comfort I bought this for aqua aerobics for indoor and outdoor pool since I am always cold in the water and don’t like to wear sunscreen. I am 5’7” and weigh 125 and the small fit nicely. Very comfortable. Would highly recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great swimwear! A friend suggested that I try these after having a "questionable" mole removed from my leg. I wish I had known about them years ago! I've used them for both pool and ocean swimming. These pants are easy to care for and so much easier and safer than reapplying sunscreen. A word of warning though. These are truly only for water play, not active wear on land! They get hot in the sun if you're dry.
