Rated 5 out of 5áby greyspots Love this shirt
I have two of these. I work out and swim in them, or just do yard work. Very comfortable, non-binding. Still looks flattering on an over-weight person. NB- you need a sports bra underneath for swimming, it is not a stand alone swim top.

Rated 4 out of 5áby lomapado love this shirt
I have two of these that I use to keep the sun off me in water aerobics and kayaking. I usually wear a medium but bought large because they seem to run a little small. I gave a 4 star because I find them a little heavy on a hot day when they are not wet. However, I usually wet them when kayaking. Color has not faded.

Rated 4 out of 5áby everynicknamestaken Does the job
I bought this for kayaking. It fits a little weirdly-loose around the neck, snug everywhere else. I probably would have done better with a petite small, if it were available, since I'm under 5 ft. I haven't been in the water with it-I try to stay in the boat. But I do get very wet paddling and the shirt dries very quickly. I also don't have to apply sunscreen to the areas covered by the shirt. It's comfortable enough, and the color (arctic blue) is very pretty. Overall, I'm pleased with the purchase.

Made well, but the largest size was too small, fit like a glove, and hot, hot, hot. Even in the water up to my neck, tooo hot.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Arunel Faded at first wash
Wore the bright blue one once, I am 5'4" and a size 6, the small fits perfectly, but it immediately faded out. That is disappointing based on the price point. If you don't care about looks, the shirt does perform in the water.

Ordered a large a little more roomy than some other brands, but I wasn't wanting that close hugging fit. Comfortable and fast drying. washes well.

Rated 5 out of 5áby swimmer74 swim shirt
lovely material - good fit. was advertised as a swim shirt but label on shirt said nothing about that. Instead, it listed other activities. I returned this shirt as I wanted to wear it for water aerobics but would have been very nice for other sports.

I ordered a size up and shortened the sleeves to use this shirt for my exercise classes...3x per week. Love it! It fits nicely. I usually wear a large but I did not want it tight.
I will also use it for cycling and hiking with the long sleeves.

Rated 2 out of 5áby illinoisretirednurse Doesn't quite do it for me
I've got two main complaints about this UV protector/water use shirt:
- The neckline is too large and doesn't protect the upper neck. My grandson and I each have another UV protector shirt that has a short stand-up collar that protects much better. With a history of melanoma, I need all the coverage I can get.
- The fabric is somewhat thin and has a rough texture. I was hoping for the nylon and Xtra Life Lycra« elastane fabric that you use in your swimwear, which is thicker, soft and slick-feeling. It wouldn't cause the drag in the water that some complain of in this shirt.
In my opinion, if you used the nylon/Lycra fabric with the stand-up collar, you'd have a winner. The sleeves wouldn't drag in the water, either. I'm sending this one back, and hope to see improvements next year.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Personwhoreviews Just what I was looking for
I wanted a rash guard/swim shirt to wear when I'm doing something active (kayak, water park, etc) and don't want to to just have on a bathing suit, especially since I'm busty (36G). This top does the job perfectly. I ordered a large for a looser fit, I didn't want a clingy shirt. I wear it over a tankini usually, and with swim shorts of some type, like board shorts or the like. It is a sturdy fabric, not thin and flimsy.
