Aqua 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.

100% Polyester

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I swim a lot Cute but too much loose fabric from the waist down.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from High bust line Like other reviewers mentioned, the bust stitching isn’t ideal for larger chested women. I purchased a medium for this reason, but the rest is pretty baggy. The side ruching helps a little, but this item is definitely too big for me in every aspect except that bust stitching. The style is otherwise great—I love the 3/4 zipper feature and the black and white stripes are lovely. I purchased this to wear over a swimsuit while kayaking, but it’s a bit warm for anything other than early mornings or fall days in the Las Vegas heat. For reference, I am 5’4”, 123lb, 32DDD (top heavy) and usually wear S-M tops/ bottoms in most clothing brands, size 2-4 jeans, and size 2-6 in dresses. According to the coolibar size chart I’m a size medium (36”, 28”, 36”), however, I do own items in sizes XS-M depending on my desired fit and the reviews.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Swim top It would be a 5 star if it was easier to get off after it’s gotten wet and is stuck to your skin. A longer zipper would be VERY helpful. I’m in my late 60’s and have no flexibility issues but I have to have someone else pull the back of shirt out to release the suction before I can get it off. It does look great on and I love the ability to adjust the sides depending on what type of suit I am wearing. I would like to say that I have discussed your clothes with many friends and have heard the comment about the difficulty in getting your tops off after they are wet. You need more full zippered products for your older customers because we are the one trying to keep skin cancer away and many of us are not as flexible as we used to be. I think if you had a selection for the senior group you would do great business.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Misplaced stiching on chest As other reviews mentioned, the stitched black line across the chest hits mid-bust. I thought i wouldn't be affected because my bust is not large, but i was wrong. It ruins the look. Also, it is a few inches too long. I'm 5'6" and got the medium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from produit top Exellent produit je l'ai dans toutes les couleurs et que j'utilise depuis 10 ans. Je l'utilise pour aller a la plage et me baigne avec car je ne peux prendre le soleil. si vous voulez nager, c'est peux etre un peux long. Les plus court sont mieux pour nager. les long sont chic avec les leggings que je porte avec. Taille tres grand, je prends small et mesure 1m70 et pese 67 kg. taille 42 en general. Je n'aime pas leurs imprimes mais les unis sont sympas. j'aimerais des imprimer plus moderne et fun, voir surf

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a good look on me I’m not sure why you wanted me to review these two items. I returned them. They just didn’t look good on me. The seam across the bust was distracting

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A favorite I’m bought this style over 10 years ago and love it. Good length. I’ve been wearing it every summer, but am due for a new one as my original purchase is beginning to look a little worn. Great coverup for the beach. The only change I didn’t really like was all the piping that used to be in white and is now black. Minor. Please Coolibar, don’t ever stop making this item!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lawai Ruche Swim Top Great product. Comfortable, runs true to size, and dries quickly. Washes well, hang to dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Swim Cover-up! Great length, both when scrunched on the sides, and when extended. I use this OVER my bathing suit, as it has no support. The white is somewhat see-through with my striped bathing suit beneath, but most cover-ups are. Don't think the white could be worn as a swim shirt over a bra, as it would be too transparent when wet; so if that is your plan, you'd probably be better off to purchase one of the prints or solid darker colours. As others have noted, the style and size is definitely for smaller breasted women. Sizing is very accurate: I'm 5' 6 1/2", weigh 116, wear an xs at Ricki's and Reitmans, and xs fit perfectly in this top over my bathing suit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this swim top! Comfortable and lightweight. Dries quickly. High quality fabric and stylish design. For comfort, I selected a size larger than normal which fit perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish sun protection! This is a must have for boating and swimming! It gives sun protection so you never have to goop up your whole body! It dries quickly and is comfortable for a boat ride or a jump in the lake. I bought one for all the ladies in my family ages 14 to 55 and we all adore them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I love this swim shirt/dress. I have been wearing it as a dress and it looks very nice. It does seem to provide good sun protection. I haven't had a chance to test it in water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful fit and feel This is a beautiful top. True to sizing. I bought this to take on vacation. The pattern and color easily pair with so many colored bottoms; whether a swim bottom or everyday leggings. The side ties are adjustable so you’re able to adjust the length as you pair this top with different bottoms. Love the fit and feel. Worth the price. I would highly recommend for swim and everyday wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, comfy top! Love this shirt! It's the perfect length, and very comfortable and cool, even in the pool. I'm 7 months pregnant and the medium still works well. (5'2'', 125 unpregnant, and busty, for reference -- I usually wear a M for tops, S for bottoms.) Very pretty dark navy color, true to the picture or maybe a bit darker in person.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Swim Shirt I love this swim shirt. However if you are large busted the strip can lay across in an awkward place. Luckily I use it for my home pool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great quality product, great fit great quality product, great fit - love it, exactly what I was looking for; first order was not correct size and return was easy, no hassels, have already recommended to all my friends

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overall design Looks nice but is VERY difficult to remove when wet. Also the black stripe sits too high at the chest, not below the 'girls'. I got size Large. This is a common problem with designers, not realizing that larger chests require lowering of empire seams. The tunic length with rouche is GREAT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favourite! Perfect fit and so comfortable. Will get lots of use out of this garment. I love it.
