Women's Crewneck Swim Tee Cover-up
Comfortable, looks good all the time, not too hot although I did expect it to be too warm for regular summer weather. Nice protection from too much sun. Drys quickly. This is my second shirt..I liked the 1st so much I bought another. Fits well. Not too clingy!

Love this Swim Tee Cover up!
I was apprehensive when I ordered this. I didn't want a shirt to be tight, or hot. It fit perfectly. When it gets wet it keeps you very cool. And seems like it stays damp for a long time. It did "grow" a little when it got wet, but it wasn't unusually large. Easy to take off and on when wet too. I would highly recommend this if you have to wear it as I do for protection against the sun due to skin cancer or sun burns.

Lightweight and works under a polo shirt for golf.
I was looking for sun protection for my arms when I play golf and this was ideal. Even in the hot Florida sun, the lightweight shirt was comfortable and not bulky under another shirt.. I will recommend it to other golfers.

true to size
I always take a size large but this item was only available in XL when I ordered. Since I'm just using it when I take the kids to the pool or while kayaking, having it a bit big didn't seem too important. I ordered a couple of long sleeved turtleneck rash guards, in size large, at the same time. This swim tee in XL fits as though it is one size larger than the size L rash guards. These shirts are supposed to fit more snugly than a cotton, knit t-shirt. If you are short, yes, the sleeves will be too long. If you have a big belly, yes, your "normal" size might feel too tight around the middle. If, however, you body doesn't have any major problem spots and you are of average height, this shirt will give you a little extra protection from the sun and wind.It's a great shirt and it fits very true to size. Ignore the reviews that claim a poor fit.

Light and Easy
I got the white and will be going back for some of the pretty prints. This is soft and comfortable. It dries quickly and did not make me feel weighted down in the ocean. I told all of my sun protected friends and they all bought some!

Excellent sun protection
I purchased this shirt to wear on a recent trip to the Middle East, as I am allergic to the sun. I wore this out while sightseeing in the desert during the mid-day sun where there was very little shade. Although short sleeves would certainly have been cooler, this shirt protected me from the sun without having to apply sunscreen as well. I did not react to the sun at all in places where I was covered by this shirt (though my hands reacted even while using sunscreen; I almost wish there were built in gloves)! I was amazed that it worked so well to protect my skin. I'm currently ordering more to use for the rest of this summer.

I am still deciding whether to keep this. There is nothing wrong with it per se but I expected it to be a bit baggier. I bought a size medium to go over a tankini and it is quite clingy. I thought it would be looser compared to say, a rashguard but it is not significantly different.

YOU WILL LOVE THIS TOP
I read the reviews before purchasing this top for correct sizing. I am a true size Medium in Land's End clothing and the same was true for this SPF top: not too clingy but still shapely and not boxy as some have stated. I live in Southern California and I am concerned with "too much sun" and this top is light enough to wear every day - I don't get hot in it! I am also an avid "dog beach" person and I needed protection at the beach while running around with the dogs in and out of water. It has proven to wear well, not ride up and looks crisp and clean. I recommend this top to everyone! I just wish they made it in more colors that would reflect the sun (light blue, pastel purple, pale yellow, pink, etc) HINT HINT LANDS END!! thank you for a great product!

Love love love this shirt for tennis
I bought this shirt to protect my skin from the sun while playing tennis. Sunscreen just does not provide enough protection, and it has to be continuously reapplied. I don't love reapplying greasy sunscreen during a match. Anyway, this shirt is light, not too hot and stays wet (from sweating, ewe), but this will keep you extra cool. I love this shirt and would recommend it , if you are ok with it staying wet while exercising.
