Fabric Details
Aqua Classic™ FabricAqua Classic™ Fabric
This is where it all started! We set out to develop a superior UPF 50+ swim fabric that didn’t feel heavy or rubbery like scuba rash guards. The result is a technically elegant, sun-safe swim fabric that is chlorine and saltwater resistant with a modest 4-way stretch. It’s silky smooth on the inside with a figure-flattering matte surface on the exterior. Customers love our Aqua Classic because it’s lightweight, quick dry and comfortable.

Coolibar’s sun protective clothing is designed to be worn in the sun and to provide excellent UV protection. If you have any questions about size, fit or style, talk to one of our Customer Service Representatives at 1-800-926-6509. They'll be happy to help, as well as offer expert advice on coordinating sunscreen hats with your wardrobe.

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.

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 4 out of 5 by from Runs Small I purchased the Red Aquatic, very pretty pattern. Unfortunately it did not fit. It runs pretty small in comparison to all the other rash guards I own. I always have fit into a L, from many different manufacturers, sad, but this one was way too tight. Still recommend Coolibar products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish Swim Shirt I love this shirt! It is stylish and dries quickly so I ordered a second! The details are an added nicety - like the rubber waist band, on the back inside that keeps it from riding upwards. It is quality and made in the US which find hard to find in this day and age.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from shirt only I bought this to wear at the pool, while swimming. It is only a shirt, no bra, or any sort of support. Great fit, but only if you want a shirt. Quite disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Experience with Coolibar products I recently bought Coolibar clothing and accessories for a Caribbean vacation. The Swim Shirt was very comfortable wear and stylish. The Sun Shawl was very stylish and I used it as a coverup (blanker) on the beach chair and a Shawl when neede. I t was light and cool. The Aqua Bandana was a perfect cover for my chest area. Very comfortable to wear and stylish. The Woman’s Rhodes Shirt was worn daily...Sometimes I tied it up and it looked great. It was cool and comfortable always. The Beach Cover-up Dress was warm and soft..perfect for after getting wet and stylish enough to wear to the Bar or Lunch. The Ginger Ribbon Hat was comfortable and stylish...I used it most while sitting in the Beach Chairs. It gave good sun cover. The Sport Cap was worn 24/7. It was always on my head; stylish, cool and comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from True Fit I am happy with this top. I can't believe that the size was true to fit. Most of the time when you buy online they are not. I really like this top and have worn it just as a top without swimming as well. I also bought the matching water capri pants to go with it. Very impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Make more short sleeve options please! I love SHORT SLEEVE swim shirts. This one fits great and keeps the biscuits covered. I really wanted a bright pink one to match the new new floral swim pants. Such a beautiful print and no option for the perfect swim shirts to match it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for distance swimming I bought this shirt in navy Majestic Palm. The weave is kind of rough, not a smooth knit. I got a painful friction rash in the front area under my arms. I swim a mile most days for exercise and I cannot wear this shirt for that. It would be fine for leisure swimming, but it is also be very hot for walking or sitting on the beach or by the pool unless you constantly got it wet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical and stylish I usually wear bikinis but for medical reasons I couldn't wear sunscreen on my beach vacation. Bought 4 short sleeve tops to go with my bikini bottoms and look cute without getting sunburnt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this swim shirt! This is the third swim shirt I have purchased from Coolibar. I am in a heavily chlorinated pool 4-5 days a week for water aerobics classes. The colors have not run or faded and the shirt has kept its shape. The XXL fits true to a size 20-22.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Color runs Please be careful with this particular purchase in orange palm I chose to hand wash by itself and it did run. If I had had it in w/white or light colors it may have had damaging

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tops I purchased many Coolibar items and love them all. They are true to size and the material is excellent. I would appreciate however, if the tops were a bit longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Swim shirt I have only used this once, paired with the matching swim skort and hat, but found it very comfortable and quick drying. I ordered a medium ( 5'7" and 150 pounds ) and it fit well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well I bought this shirt to wear as a swim shirt. It works well. There is enough room in the shoulder for freestyle swim.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable and it works! I bought this shirt for myself as I kept using my husband's when we went away. Thought I would get my own. Love it. Very comfortable in the water and it works. Even had other ladies ask where I purchased it as they wanted one too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from swimmable I like this shirt because I can wear it while I walk to the pool, shower in it, and then swim in it. The shoulders have enough range of motion for freestyle swimming.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features -- fit was too large. I bought this shirt for an outing to the U.S. Whitewater Center. Great sun protection and dried quickly. I particularly liked the sleeve length.
Date published: 2015-08-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Great quality fabric, a bit sturdier than other brands, and the gripper at the back hem helps to keep the shirt down while swimming. I ordered one size smaller than the size chart recommended because I have found that necessary with other swim tees if I want them to stay down in the water. Extra small worked fine on me, and my measurements are 35-27-36. I swim laps, and this shirt never floated up...nice!
