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.

HOW TO DETERMINE YOUR HAT SIZE: Measure around your head, from the center of your forehead, keeping tape straight and parallel to the floor. Measure around fullest part.


Circumference (inches) 6 - 7 7 - 8 ½ 8 ½ - 10

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 3 out of 5 by from Bust line seam too high Advice for older women with larger chests whose boobs are no longer higher up: This swim shirt is gorgeous. BUT the seam on the bust line is way too high for the body type described. Tip for the designer: The larger you go in sizing, the lower that bust line seam needs to be! The reddish-orange color and print are gorgeous, and everywhere else it fit and looked fine, but I knew I'd constantly be tugging it down in the water and just when sitting outside the water, so I had to return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and cute! I love this swim shirt...I wear it with the blue swim capris. It’s such a cute outfit that allows me to be protected from the sun ALL day while having fun in the water, it dries so fast and repels the sand too, so I can go to lunch or dinner after a day at the beach without having to change. Bonus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go ahead and buy a couple of them! Bought one. Loved it. Ended up purchasing five colors for myself and one for my sister. I wear them all the time as a dress with bike shorts underneath. (I'm short, so it's like a sporty dress on me.) I live at the beach so it's perfect for when I ride my bike and great because I can swim in it too! Nice to not have to put sunblock on my arms or back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Style and Protection I got one of these a couple years ago. I'm not an avid swimmer or water user, but have used it a number of times. I'm reviewing this now after my last use. A few friends and I spent a day on the river. It was 88 degrees with clear skies. At first, the shirt was too warm, but once I dipped into the water- it was fantastic! Three of my friends ended up burnt, I was just fine! After we were done, the others sat in the shade too cool down, while I stood in the sun to stay warm in my still wet and cool outfit. For this trip- I paired the ruche swim shirt with the swim leggings and a hat from Outdoor Research.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dual purpose shirt for me I love this swim shirt that I also use with leggings for walks in the sunshine. I normally wear mediums, but went up a size because I typically have to for regular swimwear. But I think a medium would have worked fine. The ties can adjust the fit, but sometimes I just like things looser for comfort and coolness.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Way to heavy fabric for swimming I bought the blue print in both the Small and Medium and the Small was way too snug. I find the Coolibar sizes are really inconsistent. For example, the Sanibel tunic Small was perfect. This shirt is way too heavy a fabric for swimming and I returned both sizes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice top, works for pregnant Ladies, too! I’m 7 months pregnant and got this shirt so I’d have a swim cover-up/rash guard for the beach. It covers my bump perfectly. The only downside is it floats up a bit when I’m in the pool. I might try tying it tighter to see if that works but I wear it over my one piece so it’s not a huge deal. I will wear this even when I’m not pregnant but it’s nice to have something I can wear now and later. Pattern is very pretty, too!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from would be so amazing with a shelf bra I want to swim in this, without having to wear anything else underneath - I would love if someone made this with a shelf-bra at least!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy it it’s quality and worth the money. It’s fit very good and very comfortable when wet. I am going to order more. I definitely don’t regret buying this at all. Best purchase in a while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from buying second one after 10 years I bought this when I was pregnant with my 9 year old.... at that point I was finally sick of getting sunburned and fighting with sunscreen. Now, 10 years later, I realize I should splurge for a new one, even though the original is still holding up great!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Overall not happy. Not paying to ship it back The material not half the quality it used to be. Very flimsy. The fit is not the same. I ordered XXL. Ran a size bigger like it was a 3X. UGG. I guess you get what you pay for. SALE item

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Cent! This fits beautifully. It's true to size and the quality is excellent. I was a little hesitant about the price but it was completely worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely beautiful color!!! I wear coolibar swim tops for playing in the ocean with air temp usually in the 90's and humid! This top is very well made but just a little thicker than other coolibar I have worn. A little too long and full at the bottom making me think it would ride up in the waves. For me, It would be great for a coverup. Thanks coolibar for all your great quality clothing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great length I bought this a month ago and have worn it for yoga and walking the dog. I like the length of the shirt & sleeves and the print. I have a long torso, am tall & pear shaped, so overall this fits me pretty well. I can see someone with a larger chest having an issue with where the empire waist seam lies. I’m a B cup, so this isn’t an issue for me. I expected the bottom part of the shirt to be a bit more fitted as it is a swim shirt. I haven’t worn it for this purpose yet, so we will see.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent The sizing was right on. I wore it with leggings as a dress and everyone thought it was cute never even knowing it was a swimsuit. I plan to use it in November in the Bahamas as I can't take the sun. Thank you for making it possible for me to visit warm places.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Swim Shirt I bought this a few weeks ago and used it on my vacation. I wore it as a swim top and as a casual top during the day before swimming. I can't recommend it enough; it's high quality, not too thin but also not heavy, a beautiful pattern, fit perfectly, and does very well in the salt water. Thank you for the excellent quality products, and looking forward to seeing new patterns of this swim shirt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded my expectations This top was purchased for a trip to the Galapagos Islands, and did not disappoint me in any manner. Comfortable, light, elegant, dried very quickly, packed into a tiny space, versatile! Looks cute at a casual meal, with pants, capris, leggings, etc; performs well in the water; what more do you need?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering and comfortable! This is my 4th Ruche swim shirt so I obviously love them. I wear them all the time, in and out of the water! I get compliments all the time even when worn over pants for a day of shopping. I would give these a 10++++++ if I could.
