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.

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 5 out of 5 by from Thank you Coolibar!!!! I just had a chance to try out the skirted swim shorts yesterday. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!! The shorts and the waist band stay in place even when wet and I love that the skirt stays down when in the water. So comfortable and quick-dry! I too wish you had more colors and designs as I would get them all! (I would love a mermaid scale design) I also have your rash guard shirts. I truly love all of your products. Thank you!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NEW FABRIC DESIGNS PLEASE I live in the ocean daily. Women's Shorebreak Skirted Swim Shorts are fabulous. Please create some new fabric designs. Solid colors are not always best. Years back you created these fabulous skirted swim shorts in patterned fabrics. The solid dark blue or black short with a patterned skirt like the "blue aquatic".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Covering! I have bought these skirted shorts for several years. While I am prancing around the pool, they cover me well. Compliment a figure! Swim in them much of the time. Super durable! Great movement!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just perfect !! After many hours debating whether to buy and what size..I purchased swim shorts /skirt combo. I am 57 years old 160 height 55 kilo and usually wear a European 36/38 or UK 8. According to the size guide I should be a size s on the waist but ×s hips..having read that they run large I took the xs which fits perfect. It looks nice with an old Coolibar swim top. Soon going on holiday and I don't go to sunbathe ,however as. I am with family who like the beach hapoy to find something that looks cute and will save me covering myself with suncream . Just a pity there is not a wider range if colours as I would order another one !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks good Haven’t worn in the water yet. Long torso, 5’6” 128lbs and ordered an XS. Waist falls about a half inch below my belly button. The fit is perfect, if it stretches in the water it will be too big. As a period extreme weight loss I do have some excess skin spill over which is bothersome considering how it is advertised as high waist and how it appears but this isn’t an uncommon dilemma for me to run into so it would not be fair to hold it against the product. I will try to pair with a tummy control top and hopefully it helps. For the price, it seems to be lacking. But, it does look nice, fits well but could fit better. Hopefully holds well in the water.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 2nd Purchase I initially bought these a few years ago and love them...My new ones arrived today, again size small and I'm normally a medium in everything...The legs are roomy and I will need to take in...The material also seems thinner...A little disappointed but happy at the same time as I love the skirt/tight combo
Date published: 2019-04-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love These Swim Shorts! These swim shorts are so comfortable and provide super coverage & flexibility for snorkeling and swimming. I'm typically a size 8 and the medium fits perfectly. Very happy with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for cellulite! These are my 2nd pair of skirted swim bottoms! I purchased my first pair several years ago, which are still holding up perfectly with many washes and wears. I needed a second pair for an upcoming cruise.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for! Love this product, there are not many companies that sell skirted swim shorts. The fit is big, I’d recommend sizing down. My only complaint is that the legs are REALLY roomy. I had to get them tailored to fit right as I felt the shorts should have been much tighter. The tailor ended up taking 3.5 inches off of each leg which was quite a bit. It now fits more snug like a swim shirt should. I am excited to wear them this summer in the water park!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Photos don't do these justice I own several Coolibar pieces but was hesitant to try these because I wasn't sure what kind of top would look best with them. Just recently, a pair of these with a patterned skirt went on sale. Fortunately, a long sleeved top in the same pattern also went on sale. I felt like I won the lottery that day because they were both available in my size. Just like other reviews have mentioned, these skirted swim shorts are very flattering. The combo I got gives the appearance of a colorful tunic top over a pair of shorts. I am 5'9 and the skirt keeps my butt securely covered. This combo looks to have a closer fit than the swim tunic so I'm hoping it won't feel heavy coming out of the water and will dry quicker than that reportedly does.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Old design much better Several years ago I bought 3 pairs of these skirted swim shorts and I just adored them. I've lost weight since then and just ordered what I thought was the same design in a smaller size. Unfortunately, the new design doesn't have the side ruching and little tie so you can shorten the length. The new style is not nearly as versatile and attractive. Please bring back the ruching and tie!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabric light and fits well. I think these will be great at pool and beach this summer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So flattering! I bought the skirted swim shorts this summer & absolutely love them! They are perfect for a size 6 who is 50 years old & doesn't want to look like it (or is NOT trying to look 20 either!). Awesome on our recent cruise with a lot of snorkeling! Looks great with Coolibar's swim jackets!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the look Bought an xs for my 12 yo daughter thinking it would fit okay, but it was too tight. It also was shorter than we expected. While she loved the look, it would be great to have one that is slightly longer in the shorts and skirt, and that didn't fit so tight. The small might work for her, but if it does, then I would say the skirt sizes runs small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable! I bought this Skirted Swim Short and am very happy to finally have something I can wear in public and feel comfortable in! I wear Medium (size 10) in most clothing but my hips measured a large for these swim shorts so bought the large. I am slightly concerned that when I am actually in water, they will stretch out and feel too large! My daughter says they look great so that works for me!
