Caution: May cause overheating if exercising outside the water due to the fabric not moisture-wicking. It is swim wear, not active wear.

Ruching is one of our tried-and-true design details that are oh-so-flattering. These Swell Wave Swim Capris have gathers at the waistband in the back and along the calf outer seam. Pair them with the Women's Wavecrest Ruched Rash Guard or the Women's Atitlan Ruched Swim Jacket for a complete look.
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.

Due to the range of fabrics and styles, each hat fits slightly different. See individual hat circumferences in the Highlights section of the product page. Our One Size hats are designed to fit most.

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 4 out of 5 by from Really works! Just wore these kayaking and then sunblock from the mid calf down. I have a significant tan line where these end and for the majority of my 2 hour kayak trip the sun was behind clouds. Am now ordering the longer pair for walking and will keep these just for kayaking. I was not hot at all from them, so they are very breathable and you don't even feel like you are wearing anything. With that being said I think that aspect makes them fit looser. I am 170lb, 5ft, quite thick and athletic and the medium feels stretchy when I put them on, even in the legs and I have thick legs. Sometimes I am between and 8 and a 10 but 8 is pretty snug right now. So a medium should have fit better. Even when wet there was no slippage so should be okay. But still don't like stretchy feel to my clothes. These are paper thin and it may feel weird at first but you get used to it and these dry much faster than a swimsuit. I hate being wet, even though I'm a swimmer, so very happy overall.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sorry but these are ugly and too big! Ugh! These swim capris are so unattractive and so big that I had to tie a big ugly knot in the tie waistband! The fabric is so thin that I am afraid they will be too see through in the water. That may not matter however as they will probably slip off when I am swimming. I wish Incould return or exchange them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nope, not for me. I guess others may like these but for me, they do not fit well. I also bought them on clearance and they only offered one color which was baby blue (my own name for the color) and I'd be too embarrassed to wear them in public. Ugly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, good design Yet another pair of Coolibar swim tights that I love. This one has the cute ruching on the lower outer leg that gives a little interest to the design. I love how the waistband is soft and doesn’t roll, but also stays up just right. The fabric is stretchy enough to be comfortable all over, but snug enough to stay in place. I’m tall (5’8”) and these come to mid-calf. A great length for hot weather and snorkeling, the protection is there but doesn’t go all the way to the ankle. I don’t know how I could ever use another company’s swim tights, Coolibar does them too well.
