Fabric Details
Aqua Helios™ FabricAqua Helios™ Fabric
Our Aqua Helios fabric provides medium compression for added support and shape retention. With a slick handfeel, chlorine and saltwater resistance and 4-way stretch, this breathable, quick-dry UPF 50+ fabric is designed for active water wear. We developed it as a sustainable fabric made with a recycled fiber blend and Lycra® Xtra Life™ to resist perspiration and wear from chlorinated water up to 10 times longer than most spandex.

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.

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.


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.

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 Lap Swimmer Gives It Top Ratings This rash guard is so well designed and made to last. The top is very form fitting with a high collar and quarter front zip. Even though I am 65 and not the best looking in a skin tight jacket, it performs the best of any other rash guards I own. The thumb loop holds the sleeves in position so the sleeve seam does not twist. The high collar actually protected my neck from chafing, more than crew neck designs. The built-in bra pads, which are securely attached, make this top a winner.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Works well for kayaking and aquatic sports! Great rash guard. It's the only one I've found which has bra cups sewn in so you don't have to wear a swimsuit under it. The zipper is long enough so it's easy to take on and off, and finally, the thumb holes work well when kayaking! The only caution is that the rash guard fits snugly, so order one size up just in case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Green multicolor summer palm zip top This product is such high quality, surf ready with UV protection! Colorful pallet to blend with green board shorts for a fun day at the beach. Stitching is strong for a perfect fit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best rash guard ever! Living in Hawaii means that I need rash guards that can withstand daily wear. This is by far the best one I have ever had! I love the sleek material. It holds up strong after many wears at the beach and many times through the washing machine! I love the padded bra inside!- no need to wear a bikini top or sports bra underneath! It's comfortable and supportive. I also love the full sun protection- long sleeves and a high neck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Women’s Escalante rash guard. It runs a little small. Order the next size up. Other than that is is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my new rash guard I love my new Escalate rash guard. It stays in place during lap swims, covering my neck and arms from the sun. It has a nice padded shelf bra inside, so you can just wear bottoms with it instead of a full swimsuit. Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Confident I am 5'4", 152 pounds. I got a large in this as I didn't want it to be too snug, however it appears to bunch in the waist a bit... Maybe because I am a bit short? I love it though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very pretty and high quality Disappointed that is runs quite small. I am consistently a size 4 to 6 so ordered a small. Think a large would have fit better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this top! I just purchased this top along with the new skirted swim capris. I am usually a size 10-12 in a top and I am 170cm tall and the medium fits perfectly. It is a thicker material and has a firm feeling, it looks great with the swim capris!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not comfortable I returned this item. The sleeves were too long. The bust too big. The waist too long. It would be hard to take off when wet.
Date published: 2020-02-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this so much! I love my rash guard so much! I have been wearing it all summer for lap swimming & water adventures with my family. It is comfortable and flattering. Every single time I wear it, I get compliments and people ask me where I got it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great This was the perfect solution to spend the week in the sun without frying. Very attractive fit as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Full Coverage Though this top provides excellent coverage it pulls up while doing water aerobics. I had to keep pulling the top down which is very distracting while trying to exercise. Also, it was very difficult to get out of since it clings so much. I feel a full zipper would work better. The bra padding stayed in place but lets see if that continues after more usage and washes. I would also prefer a higher neck to protect from sun damage but here lately most of the tops from Coolibar don't go up high enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the extra padded bra addition! I am a plus size and purchased the xxl. It fits beautifully. It's tight enough so that I do not have to wear a bra under the top which for me is a wonderful thing! It holds me well. I have already purchased a solid color and hope that Coolibar will continue to offer this top in more colors!
