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 So light and comfortable! I needed some light and flowy pants with sun protection while walking the beach in the string South Florida sun and these are the perfect pants! The fit is generous and comfortable and I really love the tire at the ankles option.. I cannot get over how light they are, almost weightless. They are exactly what I needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from comfortable and good looking I bought these pants a few weeks ago. They are larger than I expected and would suggest buying a size down. But they look good and are very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely loved them I bought these pants spring of 2019 & wore them for 500 miles of daily walking on the Camino de Santiago beginning in France & across northern Spain. After 2 months of walking & washing at least 30 times, these pants came home as beautiful as on the 1st day of receiving them. Lots of compliments along the way also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I have purchased these pants in the Brown Leopard Print pattern, and have no regrets. They are soft, comfortable and airy, perfect for the weather in my region. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and stylish! I bought these pants for their versatility, thinking they'd be good to dress up or down. So true! I got the white pair and wore it untied to a brunch birthday party, along with a black Coolibar dress. We were told we'd also be going on an urban hike after the brunch and to dress accordingly. The outfit was quite striking plus it was cool and comfortable. Plus I knew I wouldn't have to worry about the sun. I've also worn the pants tied at the bottom which adds a casual note. They both wash up beautifully and dry with no wrinkles. They'll be great for traveling. As always, I'm very pleased with my Coolibar purchases.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pants Love these Pant's!! They are cool and comfortable and loving have the option to tie them or leave them down. Also, the pockets are really nice to have on such a lightweight pant. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Sun Pants Ever--the Olive Petra!!! I have these pants in black, tan, and also a black-and-white geometric pattern, so I was delighted to find them in olive. And let me tell you, maybe because of tweaks to the fabric this year, I have found these pants even more cooling than the other colors in very hot conditions. They also go with most of my wardrobe. Just thrilled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very light and comfortable These are almost weightless. I haven't worn them in very hot weather but I'll assume they will be perfect. Very comfortable. I'm 5'7" and the length is perfect for me: just below the ankle or lower when untied; when tied they angle up on the inside but the longer part hits maybe at or above the ankle. I purchased the white and usually wear with a tunic. They're not extremely see through but I'd still probably want a top that covered my butt. I raved about this enough that my husband finally said, "So, buy another pair." And I just might! In black they'd be beautiful...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant casual My first pair Navy arrived yesterday. I’ve ordered black & olive this AM. The length,rise and flow from the lower calf slit are all perfect for my 5’5” 140 body size m. These are dashing w the Santa Barbara tunic and casual when tied & worn with the Hepburn shirt. I’d like a pair in dark red if you ever make them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable but be careful where you sit I have purchased two pair of these pants and they are very comfortable. Please be aware, though, that the material is very thin . A week ago, I sat down on a stone bench and when I stood up a large patch of fabric was torn away from the back of the leg, leaving a big hole at the back of my thigh. I was devastated, as it was the first time I wore them. Please be aware that what makes them so light and comfortable may also make them fragile and vulnerable on different surfaces.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Made for big women A person who is nine foot and big could wear this. I wish you made clothes for petite, small women.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So light and comfy! I LOVE these! I wear them all summer. Feel like I don’t have anything on. I even wore them to the Grand Canyon. I have black, white, navy, taupe and a taupe pattern. Would like some pastel colors for us fair girls! I have both s and m. The small fits me better, but are a tad short to wear down. So I got the m to wear down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light comfortable fabric that wears well I found these on sale, and decided to try them out. I light how light and airy they are, and not too cool for California winters - it's been in the 50's. The side slits are a bit longer than I realized, and the 3x is pretty large - the elastic band hangs on me and is not adjustible with the tie string. Wish I would have purchased the 2x instead.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Damaged Arrived with a large pull on the back of the leg. Bought on sale but still don't feel they should send damaged goods. These are super delicate apparently. Caution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO Light and flowy Love these!! I don’t tie sides, which makes for a chic look. Definitely needs more colors!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light weight sun protection Size extra small, black & white for sun protection cruising on sailboat, hiking or walking. I am 5’2”, 107 lbs. Had taken in a lot from pockets down sides with 2” slit at bottom. No heming needed for full length on me. Work well in hot dry weather (Montana), haven’t tried sailing in humid conditions on Chesapeake Bay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool, comfy, funky but inconsistent sizing I have these in the taupe print and in black and they fit great. Love them. So light and airy. Dressy yet can be worn with a swimsuit. I bought another pair in the black/white geo print in the same size. Unfortunately these are too short in the crotch and I will need to return them. Very disappointing to have to pay for return shipping on something you would expect to fit the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun, sassy These pants are delightful and fun. Fit runs true to size, easy to care for, and looks great for casual and dress up. Great for travel as you can use them for many events. I can't say enough fun things about these pants!! Get a pair and discover the sassy feeling on your own!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfy and stylish! I love these pants. They are incredibly lightweight. The ability to tie them makes them just a little funky, and they're easy to dress up or down. One caution is that they run pretty large. I had to go one size down and maybe should have gone two sizes down from my usual Coolibar sizing. Still, I love them!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from See through pockets! I bought these back in February. They made my legs look huge and the see through pockets, well, that just didn't help. Sorry, not for me!
Date published: 2018-06-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from So light and airy This fit perfectly and looks casually elegant. I had to hem mine because I'm short, but that was simple. The biggest issue I have with them, though, is that they are pretty see-through. You can see your underwear through them quite easily. I bought them to wear over a swimsuit on the beach, so I don't mind that, but be warned. I have never had a lighter and more flowy pair of pants, though. You will stay cool in them!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the fabric but cut doesn’t work for me I really wanted to love these pants, but I seem to have the same problem with all Coolibar pants: the waistband feels cheap and stringy, and there is no shape or styling so the fabric bunches out and ruins the line of my top. This particular pair was just too short in the crotch too, so it didn’t sit nicely on my waistline. I am 5’8 and 150lb and the Medium was the one I tried. It’s such a pity, as the fabric is fabulous and the lower leg styling is gorgeous. Coolibar, please invest in some better styling and fit for the waist sections of your pants!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fabric! I loved these pants so much that I ordered another color. The fabric is light as air and extremely comfortable, moves nicely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from white is see-through These are supremely comfortable but the white is totally see-through (you can see cellulite) so I am going to exchange for a different color.
Date published: 2018-05-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique and comfortable Bought these pants for our trip to Amelia Island; they can be casual or dressed up. Perfect for the summer. The material is maybe like parachute material; makes them thinner/ cooler but I wear tops to cover my bum so not a problem for me. They are unique to any other white pants I have or see out there, tied up or open leg, easy to wash and dry means less to pack.
Date published: 2018-04-24
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great summer fabric but not for short people I loved the light fabric; should be great for summer. However the fit was just not flattering to my 5’4” frame. I think it would have looked better if a petite size was available, as the design is cute and comfortable. Should look fine on a tall person.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pants! Great pants! Bought these for A trip to the Caribbean. These are the best pants ever. Provide excellent coverage and are super fast drying. They are a great addition to any hot weather trip wardrobe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love the fabric! I love these pants with three knots tied... so cute. the fabric is so light and cool it's amazing.
Date published: 2018-03-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for warmer temps! I love the fabric as they will be perfect for warmer temperatures. The fit was perfect--I am a pear shape with 28" waist and 39" hips and the small fit very well. I love them tied and will probably wear this way with a flat or wedge sandal.
