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 Buy one now! Incredibly elegant and useful, washes in a sink and drips dry overnight, and protects against sun. What are you waiting for? Oh, they run small. Unless you want lots of volume, if you are in the 5 8 to 5 9 range, 165 ish, get a small. Believe me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sizing and fit terrible Please be aware that this air fabric is made smaller in the bust area for all Coolibar items compared to the bamboo cotton items Size UP if you wear bra larger than cup C. The problem is that the rest of the top is made disproportionately large so the top hangs like a potato bag while wrinkles on the bust area from fitting too tight. A specific fault of this top is its length in the front. It falls ABOVE the crutch area which is extremely distasteful.. Cannot recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CT Cool Golf Babe loves these Shirts!!! I LOVE this top! Got white first, size M always fits from Coolibar, hands down! I’m 5’3” 140 lbs. it is such a light flow top! Looks great dressed up or down. I wore it to golf and it was very cool and airy. The inside sleeve buttons are good for turning and holding the sleeves up too. I recently bought a navy one, I love it so much! Take a chance, you will love it too! Packs small, lightweight, perfect!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice shirt for walks on the beach. I like the style and the fabric. The colors are brighter then the web site shows. Would have preferred darker.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features and true to the fit. I love the fit and the look of it. I just can’t figure out how to roll up the sleeves. The tab doesn’t seen to have a slit for the button. I see the button. Where’s the slit?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Santa Barbara Tunic Top Love the material and style. I was looking for something a bit dressy that would protect my skin. It is perfect. The fit is great and it is so soft to the touch. I wish it came in more color choices. Love red!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful blouse; runs large. I purchased the Santa Barbara tunic top one size down based on other reviews, and it fits perfectly. I normally wear a large, and I purchased a medium in royal navy. This is a beautiful blouse on me. I love the drape, the color, and the feel of the material. I gave it four stars based on the size running large.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor workmanship I have this shirt in another color from a year ago. I loved it so much I bought another one in the dark blue. I was so disappointed this time...the sleeves were off and tight. The workmanship was terrible and the sleeves were much smaller than the previous shirt. Either another workmanship issue or they changed the size of the sleeves (picture does show a loose sleeve). I also noticed that the new shirt was made in India and the old was made in China. Coolibar did pay for my return which was appreciated. I purchased 5 items and had to return all of them. All sizes seem to be off since I bought items last summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant and so comfortable ! Love this top ! It can be dressed up or down and looks very elegant. The length is nice. As other reviewers have mentioned- the shirt runs big. A small fits like a medium. I wish Coolibar would have other prints in this top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful drape and lightweight! I bought two of these blouses last summer in print patterns, and they are my favorite go to blouses. Lightweight, silky fabric with a beautiful drape. I get compliments whenever I wear them. The cut is so flattering. Saw the new colors this season and got the white (which is a creamy color), and the navy. They run large ~ I usually wear a medium, but the small is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Addictive and Effective This is the best top ever, and it has a high level of sunscreening capacity. The fully double front and the airy material makes it a comfortable, get up and pull on, item that is also elegant. I'm up to three, and want more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfort plus.. Haven't worn this year but can't wait til the warm weather decides to arrive! Very light and comfortable...bought my normal size (14-16) fits fine...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Knew it right away! As soon as I removed the packaging I could see that this is the top I will wear incessantly. The fabric is sheer and light but not clingy. The garment has a lot of styling details that make it completely comfortable to wear without sacrificing on fashion. It is loose enough so that it won’t be dreadfully hot in the direct sun. It all adds up to the ideal garment. And of course the color...goes with all those summer whites and stripes I do love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Many Compliments on the Tunic I wore the white tunic to our fashion show as the theme was White Sands and the wearing of white was requested. Two of my friends loved it so much, they ordered it the next day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the light weight This is a very nice white top that looks dressy. I have to wear all SPFclothing when in the sun but I don’t want to look sporty all the time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool top! Love this top. The fabric is soft with a nice drape. The style is flattering on. I travelled with it and was disappointed in how wrinkled it was after hand washing. However, I can still give it 5 stars because I like it so much otherwise.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for the vertically challenged I did like the color, but it looks much nicer in the picture than in person. My normal size M was way too large and had to be returned. I am not thrilled that $7.95 will be deducted from my refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great style Bought about month ago.I usually use M size for my 5ft, 125 lbs. This style goes too big for me so I exchanged it for small and fits well. I’m photosensitive and my wardrobe is almost 50% COOLIBAR.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, breathable sun protection. Purchased for an upcoming trip to Mexico. "Test drove" on a rare warm weather day in Seattle. Super lightweight. Take up very little room in suitcase. Looking forward to wearing on my trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit, light fabric, Bought this as a top to wear to summer concerts and such that need something a little dressy but not over the top. This got raves the first time I wore it....versatile, colorful, light and breezy and easy to wear with slacks, jeans, or skirts! I love it. And very packable as well. In fact, this may go to Hawaii with me in a couple of months for casual evenings out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goes Anywhere Have several of these and they are simply the best. At first, I thought that this blouse didn't fit right, but then realized that I was trying too hard to make it look like other blouses. It is a style of its own. It is a very lightweight and comfortable fabric that simply flows, no need to tell it what to do. I get lots of compliments on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing top!! Love this top!! The fabric is so light and cool. it is now one of my go to tops for any outing or trip. It can be dressed up with a nice pair of white pants or a white skirt, as well as, worn during a sunny day with s pair of shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So PERFECT! I just came back from Bermuda and bought these shirts in both white and pattern. So light, dries quickly, has a little button for rolling up the sleeves and covers beautifully. I wasn’t hot, felt chic, comfy beyond words. The back of the shirt is longer than the front so it has a classy stylish look too. LOVE! Every season I get more Coolibar clothing and now I have a great wardrobe to protect me from the sun. I really have to as well because I had skin cancer several years ago and want to prevent! In this picture I was walking around Hamilton, Bermuda.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks better on the model. Bought this Santa Barbara top in white and a print. Normally in coolibar tops I wear an extra large because of my girls but the description said to order down in this fabric. Good thing I did because these shirts are huge. Even a large was a bit too big especially in the back and the aire fabric just did not hang right on me. If you look like the model these shirts will probably fit but if you are short and big busted like me you will have a problem. Another issue with this fabric is it doesn't stretch or breathe. In the hot summer that is a big problem. These shirts should have been designed with mesh openings under the arm pits, down the sides and a mesh strip up the back so air can circulate under the shirt. Otherwise they are just locking in sweat. I hope Coolibar will make this adjustment to these aire shirts and the aire tank tops as well. So disappointed. I really wanted these to fit. Oh well.
