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 2 out of 5 by from It’s ok…. Maybe not worth the price Skirt is too long for my taste, skirt is cut in an awkward A line cut that makes it look dressy (not form fitting), shorts underneath DO NOT protect against chafing (they are too short for that and the fabric seems cheap), waistband does not have tummy control. P.S. size down. Pros: the color is cute.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad I like the swim skort...but..i loved the old one. The only complain i have with this skort is the short on this one is a little shorter than the old one. If you guys could bring back the old one it would be amazing. Please consider it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart look, practical performance Excellent! Clean lines look sophisticated; substantial, soft fabric dries fast; right amount of coverage; appreciate the pocket! Has stayed put in rough Mexican surf. Best product of this style that I have found.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks good didn’t try it yet as it is winter :) Looks good and length okay .. i sized up as i wanted it to be a loose fit I am usually medium but I got large, a medium would have been perfect though but tight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the beach! I loved this swim skort! I wore it to the gulf for a beach vacation and it worked out perfectly. It was a little big, so I would suggest ordering a size down if you are an in-between size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Fit is true to size. I love these. I now have 3 of them and get complements every time I wear them. I use them just as a squirt when I go out during the day for lunch and then I also use them for a bathing suit. I would highly recommend them to anyone

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the same:( I’ve been buying these skorts for years and was always a fan. The quality and fit aren’t the same in the past 3-4 years. Please bring back the old style. Also, more pattern choices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great- but short inseam in shorts This is a great skort- I have long legs and looks very flattering. The shorts inside have only a 2 inch or so inseam, so I sewed some bandalettes inside for greater chaffing coverage, and I love it! Can run after kids without worrying about rubbing or overexposure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from True blue swim skort Have not worn yet. Tried it on and is true to size s. Boy shorts underneath are comfortable

Rated 1 out of 5 by from UNEXPECTED WHITE SHORTS UNDERNEATH --- NEVER ! The description for BLUE PAISLEY didn't warn me that the SHORTS underneath ARE WHITE ! I would never wear a swim bottom with white shorts underneath. They should be dark blue! I have at least 10 other COOLIBAR swim bottoms, but these are going back. It kills me to pay the return shipping and receive NOTHING after being such a long term customer. I would never have ordered these if the description had been clear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Older short sleeve one piece swim suit I bought this a couple of years ago and lov love it. Many peeps were interested in buying one also. What happened to them? I see one long sleeve one. Sad face.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bummer it changed. I have loved your swimwear over the years! I NEEDED a new swim skort as my original one is almost threadbare. I was so disappointed when the new one arrived and was much shorter. I loved the old under shorts too. They would stay put during long walks on the beach... really sad about the changes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from EXTREMELY Disappointed! I have multiples of the old style that I absolutely love and have gotten many compliments on!!! The new style is completely different. I do not like the change in the waistband. The length is supposedly 16", but now almost 3" of that is waistband, so this skort hits much shorter on me. Plus the old style curved up slightly on the sides and was much more flattering. It's going back. I have many Coolibar products I've been very happy with, but would NOT recommend this swim skort (unless maybe you are petite and on the shorter side).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed in the design change! As another customer stated, please bring back the old style of this swim skort! I own 2 of the older style & absolutely love them! Length was perfect, mid-thigh, & waist band sat at the waist. Ordered, what I was hoping was the same style, but for some reason, you have changed the design & fit of the 'newer' ones. Undershort is shorter on the leg causing it to creep up & cause some chaffing if not careful, & the waist band has changed & sits lower on the hips. I will end up keeping these as I need them for an upcoming trip to Jamaica, but if the old design style doesn't return, I will be looking elsewhere for my next purchase of a swim bottom.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from old style was better I have 3 of the old style, 1 of the new. I preferred the longer, non-wedgie shorts on the old style; also preferred the beefier fabric and the sturdier waistband. I will not buy the new style again. So sad! I am a life customer if they ever bring the old style back. You can still find them at other outlets online, btw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best! So comfortable and flattering. I've always avoided wearing a swimsuit, so this option has been life changing for me! I just spent the weekend at a waterpark with my kids and this skort provided enough coverage to walk around comfortably (while still being flattering and not too 'old' looking). I'm 5'8 and this bottom is the perfect length for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Tall Women This swim skirt is longer than other brands (another company known for its swimwear makes skirts that are 14"). When I saw that Coolibar's was 16" I had to buy it... it's now my favourite swim skirt. I am 6', so I can understand if others find it too long. I guess I better stock up in case you discontinue this style.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Material is different I bought this black skort to go with the Coolibar black tankini I previously bought. Unfortunately the material is different. I assumed it would be the same material so you can mix and match the swim products. The tankini is a recycled nylon, much softer and glossy in appearance than the skort. The skort is a polyester and the finish on it does not match the tankini. At this price point it would be nice if the company would keep to the same materials in the swim products so you can match them. Disappointing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this skort but too long I love this skort, I am a mom who has to keep up with the kids and it helps keep my thighs from rubbing together and causing painful chaffing, However I am 5"0, and and the regular comes just above my knees when wet. I would like to see the PETITE SIZES come back for us vertically challenged active moms.
