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 Cool top! Love this top. The fabric is soft with a nice drape. The style is flattering on. I travelled with it and was disappointed in how wrinkled it was after hand washing. However, I can still give it 5 stars because I like it so much otherwise.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for the vertically challenged I did like the color, but it looks much nicer in the picture than in person. My normal size M was way too large and had to be returned. I am not thrilled that $7.95 will be deducted from my refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great style Bought about month ago.I usually use M size for my 5ft, 125 lbs. This style goes too big for me so I exchanged it for small and fits well. I’m photosensitive and my wardrobe is almost 50% COOLIBAR.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great loose shirt for the heat Heading to the middle east where it is 100 degrees and want a loose and stylish top. This is it. Easy to care for too. Thanks Coolibar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, breathable sun protection. Purchased for an upcoming trip to Mexico. "Test drove" on a rare warm weather day in Seattle. Super lightweight. Take up very little room in suitcase. Looking forward to wearing on my trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit, light fabric, Bought this as a top to wear to summer concerts and such that need something a little dressy but not over the top. This got raves the first time I wore it....versatile, colorful, light and breezy and easy to wear with slacks, jeans, or skirts! I love it. And very packable as well. In fact, this may go to Hawaii with me in a couple of months for casual evenings out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goes Anywhere Have several of these and they are simply the best. At first, I thought that this blouse didn't fit right, but then realized that I was trying too hard to make it look like other blouses. It is a style of its own. It is a very lightweight and comfortable fabric that simply flows, no need to tell it what to do. I get lots of compliments on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing top!! Love this top!! The fabric is so light and cool. it is now one of my go to tops for any outing or trip. It can be dressed up with a nice pair of white pants or a white skirt, as well as, worn during a sunny day with s pair of shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So PERFECT! I just came back from Bermuda and bought these shirts in both white and pattern. So light, dries quickly, has a little button for rolling up the sleeves and covers beautifully. I wasn’t hot, felt chic, comfy beyond words. The back of the shirt is longer than the front so it has a classy stylish look too. LOVE! Every season I get more Coolibar clothing and now I have a great wardrobe to protect me from the sun. I really have to as well because I had skin cancer several years ago and want to prevent! In this picture I was walking around Hamilton, Bermuda.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks better on the model. Bought this Santa Barbara top in white and a print. Normally in coolibar tops I wear an extra large because of my girls but the description said to order down in this fabric. Good thing I did because these shirts are huge. Even a large was a bit too big especially in the back and the aire fabric just did not hang right on me. If you look like the model these shirts will probably fit but if you are short and big busted like me you will have a problem. Another issue with this fabric is it doesn't stretch or breathe. In the hot summer that is a big problem. These shirts should have been designed with mesh openings under the arm pits, down the sides and a mesh strip up the back so air can circulate under the shirt. Otherwise they are just locking in sweat. I hope Coolibar will make this adjustment to these aire shirts and the aire tank tops as well. So disappointed. I really wanted these to fit. Oh well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good basic The Santa Barbara was first piece from Coolibar. I returned the Tuscan yellow only because it was lemon rather than golden Tuscan. So far I’ve gotten 3 pairs Petra slacks,2 Diamond Cove jackets,2 kaftans & Hepburn shirt. The S B tunic doesn’t offer a dark red or other interesting colors or patterns but the black is classic travel top w the other pieces

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very stylish I bought 4 of these tops and because you don't carry petite anymore, the sleeves were too long. It is costing me $49.00 to have them shortened. I love your products and have ordered many over the years. I wish you would bring backk a selection of petites so I can order more without having to pay for altering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for hot climates I purchased the medium after reading that the shirt runs large. I’m usually a medium to large, and this was perfect. Super lightweight yet not see through. We are going to the desert and I look forward to being covered but cool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fabulous fabric I have this in a pretty pale blue. Ordered M as with all my other tops. It’s way too big on the shoulders and arm holes. To me relaxed fit means in the body of the garment NOT the frame. It’s not practical to return items shipped to Europe as we’ve pain import duty and then VAT is added to the whole amount including delivery and handling charge. I’ve just paid $125 charges on a $300 invoice. Almost impossible to get any refund. Cheaper to pay for a dressmaker to alter it, but it’s a very delicate fabric. Could end up ruined. Please be more consistent with sizing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Took Time to Like I almost gave this top away, but I found that it looks good tucked in with skinny jeans, leaving the front out and loose. The blousey look is always good with a tighter bottom. I also like the lightness of the fabric, but it generates static and tends to get "sticky" to other fabrics and my hair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super light weight for real heat I now have 3 of these tops and find them comfortable in serious heat and humidity. They also wash and drip dry in super quick time. They are very generous in size. I wear the XS and at 117lbs or 57 kg l could go even smaller if there was a XXS. Now that there is a Chambord style with a zip neck for more coverage, I’d like to go over to that design in future but would love to see it in black or more solid colours.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So lightweight! I have received this tunic in solid white and it is lovely. The lightest weight top I have found that is also sun protection. Fantastic! I have not yet worn it so I can't say 5 stars yet but I am hopeful. The reviews said it runs large so I bought a size Small which fits perfectly. I am 5'6" 140 lbs. After I wear it, if I like it, I will probably buy another in a colorful print.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light as a feather, soft as silk & beautiful I have severe photosensitive lupus and I live in black (best for blocking UVB rays) light-protective clothing and AZ is not idea for either the sunlight or the soaring temps. This shirt and the Monte Carlo maxi skirt make an airy, beautiful outfit (esp. when complimented with the Wide brim straw hat, also in black). Also, I love that the sleeves button up to keep them out of the way when cooking or doing messier tasks. Wherever I go people always ask who I’m wearing because Coolibar has a style like no other. In my last order, I bought 5 of these to go with 5 maxi skirts, 2 interval jackets and 1 wide brim straw hat to fill out my wardrobe. Buy Coolibar, you’ll never regret it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not sized right All my previous Coolibar clothing is size large. I bought this top in a medium as the reviews stated it fit big. Big was an understatement. The medium was draping off my shoulders, I was swimming in it. Very disappointing as small is now not available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this top! A new favorite- love the color, the fit, and the lightweight fabric gives coverage in hot weather.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pretty top I bought this a few weeks ago and can hardly wait to wear it when the weather is warmer. It is a very pretty top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievably light and elegant I have worn this top constantly on my current holiday in the Cook Islands. I love it. It runs larger than expected so for my next one l will go down another size. The fabric is amazing and yet protects me for the high UV rays here and back home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the fabric The aire fabric feels wonderful against the skin. Can’t wait till my vacation to try it out. Style is loose but I think that will be good for beating the heat. I’m 5’3”, 120# and ordered the xs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous fabric, light, superb to wear in the heat This fabric in the beautiful blue flower pattern is simply superb! It is as light as a feather, sensational for really hot days when full coverage is needed. Use a brooch to close the neckline for greater protection when needed. I have bought this top in two sizes, M for a looser fit on REALLY hot days - and S for a closer fit for party events. I will ALWAYS seek to buy this fabric in future - all other fabrics available, overheat me when full UV coverage is needed. PLEASE keep this item in stock as I will definitely be ordering more. If you are serious about sun protection, and keeping cool is a priority, this is the best fabric around!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fabric is perfect but the fit isn't I really love the fabric and I was super glad I could find black and white color options. However, I'm 5'2", 110 lbs and XS was too big(too wide and too long). I liked the sleeves are long enough to cover my hands but neckline was too wide and deep to me. I wish I could find XXS in this design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved the colour & great fit. I bought this for my daughter for a family cruise. She travels a lot. The fit is good. She loved the colours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty design I love the look if this blouse. Slightly longer in the back, and fake-wrap in front. Perfect fit, cool kind of retro print. Love love love it.
Date published: 2018-09-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely lightweight and airy I am 5'4 137 lbs and purchased a small. It is very flowy and extremely lightweight and comfortable! This can be casual or dressy. Great with navy capris, dress pants or denim! Great for Florida and vacations!
Date published: 2018-08-27
Rated 3 out of 5 by from LARGE I'm fine with it being a little large, since it's long enough to wear with leggings. It's okay, but it seems a little frumpy for my style. I still appreciate the sun protection, but it isn't the cutest top in my closet.
