This Is Brave Blog
We have again joined forces with the Melanoma Research Foundation to bring 8 Warriors stories to life and help raise awareness throughout the month! Visit blog.coolibar.com to read about these inspiring people.

Our “Be Brave” shirts started in 2018, inspired by a 10-year-old child whose brother was diagnosed with a rare form of pediatric melanoma. She told him to “Be Brave” and we realized we should all be brave, inspire and build awareness with these powerful words. This shirt represents the love, courage, fight and commitment shared by everyone who is impacted by the far-reaching diagnosis of melanoma.

One in five Americans will develop skin cancer by the age of 70. One person dies of melanoma every hour. Thank you for joining Coolibar and the Melanoma Research Foundation in the fight to change these statistics.

Together we are stronger. This is Brave.

HAT SIZE CHART

Due to the range of fabrics and styles, each hat fits slightly different. See individual hat circumferences in the Highlights section of the product page. Our One Size hats are designed to fit most.

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.

GLOVE SIZE CHART

Measurements XS S/M L/XL
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.

UNISEX SLEEVE SIZE CHART

Measurements XS S/M L/XL XXL
BICEP (circumference) 7 ¼ 9 ¼ 11 ¼ 13 ¼
WRIST (circumference) 5 ¼ 5 ½ 6 6 ¼
SLEEVE LENGTH 18 20 22 ½ 22 ½

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.

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR RIGHT SIZE

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 Didn't realize As a melanoma survivor I thought the shirt would look nice being worn casually and would make a statement. I didn't mind the MRF printing on the back but was disappointed to see Coolibar UPF 50+ in 1/2 " high white lettering 5" down the back of the shirt. At first I thought the shirt must be inside out. Nowhere was there any mention of graphics on the back of the shirt when I was purchasing it. I love the shirt and I know it's for a good cause but the graphics on the back really should have been disclosed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Way oversized with no option for exchange As a melanoma survivor, I wanted to love this shirt, but it was beyond swimming on me. I ordered my usual unisex/men’s sizing, but this went to my knees! I’m now out the return shipping and have to decide if I want to pay shipping on another shirt. Not impressed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wrong color I recognize that black is the “cancer color” for melanoma however, black does attract the sun so even though the shirt is a sun protective shirt, won’t it still attract the heat? The shirt designed to be worn outside so I’m having a difficult time reconciling the color with the purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Fit, Wonderful Message I have been wearing this top on a trip in the UK and it looks really good with a black skirt and also with jeans. I have worn it in Scotland where I saw so many young women who tan like I used to and as a melanoma survivor it hurts to see this. I also saw noticed that about 60% of the women I saw in London and Yorkshire also were tanners. This shirt allows me to get a message across without being preachy. I wish I had listened to those who warned me to stop tanning. I'm so grateful to be a survivor and so sad to see that tanning is glorified in advertising and modeling so that young people continue the practice of tanning. Thank you for a stylish top that gets the message out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shirt. This shirt is stylish, fits perfectly, keeps its shape and dries quickly when it gets wet. It is a superb travel shirt. I wish it came in other colors so that I could add more of them to my collection.
