Rated 3 out of 5 by from Better prints, colors, designs please.. I've bought a few pieces from coolibar every year for the last few years. They're expensive, but I like the thin- and slick-ness of the thinner swim fabric. In the Houston climate, I can bear wearing the long sleeves and swim pants in the pool, gardening, cycling and even as a protective leg layer with skirts and dresses. But I agree: could you please get help on the colors and prints and designs you use so clothes are not so dowdy? Also, as a person who just had a melanoma removed from the center of my chest, deep v necks are not helpful. My worst sun damage, aside from my face, is on my chest, arms and lower legs. (Ok--pretty much everywhere!) Those are the areas you need to creatively and tastefully cover, not expose.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mimi Davis, artist These size M swim leggings didn't fit. They were too tight in the waist. So I ordered the L and the waist fit but the legs were way, way too big. So I am using some Nike old leggings that hit just below the knee and they are great. All my other leggings are pretty expensive lululemon and I don't want to swim in them. The Nikes dry overnight. I wear your tops with another top from New Zealand and my upper arms are still freezing. Swimming in the ocean. Since you asked me for my opinion, I hate to be negative but do want to tell you that I think your prints you use on your outfits are hideous. Also I think you should redesign your swim leggings and make the M with a much bigger waist or a pull cord on it. Back to your general merchandise, I wish you would make your prints prettier. I would be glad to help you. I am an artist. I have sold 940 paintings and prints on eBay. I have degrees in Residential Design and Art History, not textiles, but I am sure I could design much more appealing prints than the ones you are selling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from looks like them will work well. fit well. i exchanged for small, originally got a medium. I know things tend to get bigger when wet so I wanted them to fit tighter. Haven't used them yet but they look like good quality

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Returned -- not what I wanted Returned these because they were too thick. Also because my skin reacted immediately to the wool, despite its being the gentlest type.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No burn! Love the leggings for my kayak trips. Don't have to worry about sunburn! Very comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cruz swim leggings These are really very comfortable. Keep in mind that you don’t want them to stretch a lot so they may feel too big. They stay on in the water and keep me safe. I’m able to go swimming with my kids. These are worth every penny just for that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A+ I absolutely love these leggings! I have a history of melanoma and Coolibar clothing allows me to feel more confident when I'm outside.
