Sun Fact

What we call sunlight is technically ultraviolet radiation. In addition to cosmetic concerns like premature aging, wrinkling and unattractive sun spots, ultraviolet rays alter our molecular structure and cause deep damage and skin cancer. In other words—don't get burned!
- American Cancer Society


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 5 out of 5 by from CAMOUFLAGE SO WELL, SHOULD BE CALLED SHAPEWEAR Not just a nice fit, it’s a miracle top. Because the high waist along with the rushed sides hides your tummy and shapes you really well. The ice blue color is gorgeous. Wish they had in short sleeves. Just ordered a different color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cute and dries quickly! Great protection! Having been diagnosed with Melanoma this year, I was prompted to buy UPF 50 clothing for our trip to the outer banks. I couldn’t have been happier with this cover up! I was able to enjoy swimming in the ocean, playing on the beach, and jet skiing ... all while being protected from the sun. Plus it’s SUPER cute and dries quickly! A little pricey but I know I’ll have it forever. Great purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these swim shirts! I bought two of these swim shirts 2 years ago for a cruise/beach summer vacation. They have been much needed additions to my swimwear wardrobe! They are high quality and they really do work for sun protection (I ended up liking them so much I bought some swim shirts from Coolibar for my husband too). And in those two years with lots of use, they have held up really well to all my wear and tear. And, when paired with the right bottoms, a cute hat, and matching flip flops they can be made to be a cute outfit that can take you from pool to pool bar. Please never discontinue these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I need for our trip to Key West in July! This shirt was offered free w/ purchase. I have several swim shirts but this is longer and will provide more coverage

Rated 4 out of 5 by from White is see through It is good material and fit, but the white is see through. I have it in navy which definitely isn’t see through

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality It fit as advertised. A little more see through than expected so make sure you wear another bikini or swimsuit underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit of the Lawai Ruche swim shirt I ordered a medium which is what I generally wear in shirts and pants, and the fit was perfect. Very comfortable and easy to move in. I can't wear sunscreen anymore, so it is really important to have clothing that will protect me from sun exposure. It is nice that it also looks good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BIT LONGER TO DRY THAN EXPECTED I wore this for the fits time today and went for a swim. I felt really protected. It did take longer to dry in the sun than I expected.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sleeves tight I wish the sleeves hadn’t been so tight. I had to return it. I’m kind of particular about sleeve tightness though so I’m not sure if it would be a problem for someone else. I also felt like it was really hot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the adjustable length and pattern. Love the adjustable length and pattern. I wasn’t sure about sizing since this was my first order from Coolibar. I sized up to compensate for my height since I’m a tall gal. It was a little big but the length was perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet Ruche Swim Shirt/Dress I love this swim shirt dress - I have it in blue too. I actually cut off the sleeves. You should make a sleeveless version of this. Love it more now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How it looks when wet I’m more comfortable with a swim suit top on underneath however a younger person might be quite comfortable without.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really lovely. Great top. Love the length and the ruched sides. Finally I found a decent cut and style I like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fit Love the fit. Read the reviews and got one size smaller than I usually buy, when purchasing a coolbar top. Looking forward to summer water sports, with great coverage and fashionable look.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not right fit or size I ordered size small before from coolibar but for some reason this time size small isn’t fitting well not sure if something changed with the design or something wrong with this shirt

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best swiming shirt Love this shirt , owned few Ruche Swim shirts , and they last forever , color never fade. Its not hot , drying quick , sun protection for your body .Pair with coolibar swiming pants . Thus color is so pretty, got many complaints

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs improvement If you are well-endowed, you will be disappointed that the line does not sit where it should to compliment your curves/provide extra support. I still give it 3 stars, though, because even despite the flaw in where the line has been sewn in this piece, the style is still cute- & most importantly, it protects well from the sun. Would have loved thumb holes on this piece, too, to provide extra protection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit I have this in size small and medium. I prefer the medium so it fits more like a cover up but the small works more as a shirt. My normal dress size is a 6 and shirt size a medium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving my new Lawai Ruche Swim Shirt I am usually a size 2 to 4 and this fits perfectly! I am in love with this product and will be ordering a few more for the summer months at our cottage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shirt for swimming or cover up! I have this swim shirt in both small and medium. I normally like mediums best in this brand though I am a normal size 6. When wearing this shirt as a swim shirt this fits best in size small but wearing it as a cover up I like the medium better. I have way too many cooli bar cover ups and love them all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely spring and summer shirt I bought some ot these swim shirts with different colors and patterns. They are all lovely, confortable and with the right accessory , they are also elegant as well as fashion like. I use them not only for swimming but as normal cute shirts for daily life.
