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 Runs loose Very comfortable. Thin material, not exactly the support I was looking for but has the coverage. I would go down a size from your leggings size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and durable! Love them! I love these swim shorts! This is the second pair I've purchased from Coolibar because I wanted to have two different colors. The ones I purchased last summer are still perfect after many wears, and the blue ones I purchased this summer are so pretty, durable and comfortable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good material but high in waist These shorts are very high, up to my waist even though the photo showed them reaching below the belly button. Also very loose for swimming in, even though they are a size XXS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort I bought these to go hot tubbing with some girlfriends. Also a top. My friends were asking about them. Covers an old body. I was very happy. Really happy with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable I bought 2 pair of the shorts in black and navy blue.I had surgery on my right thigh and they hide my scar.They also stay put and don’t ride up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy I bought these Purchased a pair in Black, size L. I am 5'9 and the length hits me just above the knee, which pleasantly surprised me. I own a pair of the swim capris and the fabric appears to be the same, which means these will feel like a second skin and dry quickly. Can't wait to try these out at the beach. As with the capris, I recommend wearing a bathing suit bottom underneath for modesty reasons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exact fit! I bought these swim shorts for my recent trip to Florida. Not only did they do the trick of keeping my thighs covered but the fit perfect and worked great in the water. Will buy more. In fact, looking for my grandchildren now!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I could see my butt crack through them I bought these for a cruise and did not realize you could see through them. They also run a bit big. They fit well enough for yoga pants but not for the friction of swimming. Maybe you have to have a suit under them? For $60 for a single piece I expect them to at least not be see through or have an obvious sign that they are not meant to be worn alone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the coverage I have been wearing swim shorts like these for years now. I hated the short shorts that didn't cover enough of my leg for me to feel comfortable. But these really have no support on the stomach and it would be so easy and useful to put a tummy control panel there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome I bought these as I am now volunteering at the hospital therapy pool. it is a salt water pool - NONE of my other swim suits hold the colour in the constant use as these swim shorts - I bought matching tops to vary up the look. I could MAYBE have used a smaller size but did truthfully needed them right away so I did not bother to exchange as the fit was not that far out - love them

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So nice, but way too big! Was excited to get these shorts to match the swim jacket. Unfortunately they were huge. Could go down 2 sizes I bet. And sadly they are out of the smaller sizes. Had to return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Florida and vacations Bought a small. I'm 5'4" 137 lbs and fits perfect. Love that it fits higher on the waist for more coverage. Remember sunblock for lower legs!!! I bought the matching hat and it looks great together! Material is lightweight and these can be worn like spandex shorts or swim shorts. This is multi functional when living in Florida!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from To people who write I would love to know the size you are talking about, and the weight. I know is a sensible information but it helps for people like me. I mean, I am 246 pounds. I swim every day and use a lycra knee high shorts under my swim suit. I would like a short that fits tight and the material to be strong. Thank you
