Women's Crewneck Swim Tee Cover-up
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.

Great coverup/swim t
This shirt will be great for the beach. If it's windy and feels a little cool, this will be perfect for warming up a little. If it's hot and the sun feels relentless, this will block the sun really well even while swimming. This shirt is cut in a flattering way. It's slightly fitted. I am 5'7", 125lbs. I ordered a Small. I didn't want the shirt to fit like a second skin and it doesn't! Really cute and practical!

Love this! Very soft and comfortable, not clingy like a rashguard.
I'm 5'7" 120 lbs. and ordered the XS, which is perfect. I have broad shoulders and long arms, but the sleeves are long enough, which is often a problem for me.

What a great find!!
I bought a few of these to wear in Mexico. I was thrilled with them. Skin cancer runs in my family so I like to stay covered. They were comfortable and dried quickly. Great fabric. I will definitely buy a couple of more for the summer boating season.

I like that it is not so snug. It looks and feels great! A great price on a great item.

True to size with tight-ish sleeves
I am 5'7"+ and about 142 lbs. I am "slender" but older, so have some mid-life midriff issues. My arms aren't buff, but they are definitely not big. I ordered this in a small due to other reviews, but did not find it big at all. The arms are form fitting on me and the shirt does not cling but it is unforgiving on me in the solid colors. The prints look ok though. I'm going to run up to the store and try this in medium. Also, the fabric is a little heavy/polyester for wearing around in the heat a lot, the way I intended to avoid sun exposure. It would be fine for the beach with a breeze and probably great in the water. They would probably be nice in a cool office or dealing with summer AC too. Because of the weight, I will keep a couple of these shirts, not 4 or 5 for summer protection as I planned.

The sleeves run long on this shirt. I bought the violet and love the color. I wear it every other day in the pool and it has not faded or stretched out of shape. I like that it isn't as heavy as other swim shirts I have owned. It protects me from the sun and wind on my daily swims. I have received many compliments on this shirt. It runs a little big, so you may want to size down.
