Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swim leggins Comfortable, not too tight on waist and even dressy to shop

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liked the color and the performance. I wore them in Maui to walk on the beach and stand up paddleboard. They performed well. I definitely prefer to wear UPF clothing instead of wearing sunblock/sunscreen. It's a good color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection This is my third pair of Santa Cruz Swim Leggings. I really love the fit and feel of the leggings. They are sturdy and work well to protect my legs from the sun. They are effortless to put on and I never have to tug them up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swim shirt & leggings Good fit with no bagging or bunching. Light weight, which is important for being outdoors in the heat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable leggings!! Recommended by my dermatologist to cover my legs during water aerobics. The leggings are the best I’ve ever worn in water. Easy to move in and extremely comfortable. I liked them so much I purchased another pair in navy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swimming These pants make swimming in the ocean terrific. The water temperature is maintained.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Better prints, colors, designs please.. I've bought a few pieces from coolibar every year for the last few years. They're expensive, but I like the thin- and slick-ness of the thinner swim fabric. In the Houston climate, I can bear wearing the long sleeves and swim pants in the pool, gardening, cycling and even as a protective leg layer with skirts and dresses. But I agree: could you please get help on the colors and prints and designs you use so clothes are not so dowdy? Also, as a person who just had a melanoma removed from the center of my chest, deep v necks are not helpful. My worst sun damage, aside from my face, is on my chest, arms and lower legs. (Ok--pretty much everywhere!) Those are the areas you need to creatively and tastefully cover, not expose.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mimi Davis, artist These size M swim leggings didn't fit. They were too tight in the waist. So I ordered the L and the waist fit but the legs were way, way too big. So I am using some Nike old leggings that hit just below the knee and they are great. All my other leggings are pretty expensive lululemon and I don't want to swim in them. The Nikes dry overnight. I wear your tops with another top from New Zealand and my upper arms are still freezing. Swimming in the ocean. Since you asked me for my opinion, I hate to be negative but do want to tell you that I think your prints you use on your outfits are hideous. Also I think you should redesign your swim leggings and make the M with a much bigger waist or a pull cord on it. Back to your general merchandise, I wish you would make your prints prettier. I would be glad to help you. I am an artist. I have sold 940 paintings and prints on eBay. I have degrees in Residential Design and Art History, not textiles, but I am sure I could design much more appealing prints than the ones you are selling.
