Women's Swim Tee Rash Guard
Perfect fit, fabric and color!
The Women's Crewneck Swim Tee Rash Guard is just what I was looking for. I'm 5'-7" 135-140 lbs, and the size small fit perfectly. The fabric used is nylon and spandex, which makes for a lighter feel. Some retailers use polyester in their sun shirts, so they're not as comfortable/feel weightier. The sleeves are longer than other retailers similar products, but they're not too long. I like that they hit at the bottom of my wrists with a little excess fabric so they don't pull up, and pull the shirt up when I raise my arms. The body is also long enough to cover my hips bones and then some. #Petites will definitely want to order from the petite sizing due to the length.# Bonus: LOVE, love, love the color Violet Plum!

This was a great buy! I have really long arms so I ordered the Small Long. The body is a little baggy for a Small, but the arms are plenty long which is great. The SPF seemed to work really well-- no burns here and we were in Barbados.

It really works and it fits well
If I had paid a little more attention to my neck, I would have had no sunburn at all! Was in the Sanibel sun 4 hours/day for 5 days. Body parts covered by the shirt were just fine. Shirt is not too fitted, not too loose. Wore it in swimming, with shorts, even out to dinner with a skirt. I want another one.

Great shirt with UPF
This shirt is lightweight with UPF protection that I need. It stretches a little in the water (all rash guards do) but regains it shape upon drying and is ready for my next wear. I am 5'3", 130 lbs., and the Small fits just fine. Length is good and this shirt is extremely comfortable. I will be ordering more colors.

I purchased this tee for a friend in Florida who recently developed a sensitivity to the sun, manifested by a rash on her arms. She was thrilled with the softness of this lightweight fabric. She wears it in the pool over her swimsuit and out, with shorts or slacks. It has eliminated the need to apply and reapply sunscreen throughout the day. She usually wears size Large, but in this tee, Medium fit just fine. She could not be more pleased!

Very happy with this swim tee
This swim tee is ideal protection from the sun. It is a good fit, snug enough to swim in but not uncomfortable.

I bought this in a solid white and two of the prints. I am a 34-36 D in the bust and it is hard to find swimsuits that fit in the bust area. I read a review posted here that talked about wearing these swim tees over sports bras instead of bathing suit tops. I've been doing that with the print swim tees (the white would be too sheer to get wet, I think) and it works very well. I do water aerobics about 3-4 times a week, and with my olive complexion, I need to wear these tees to keep the sun at bay as almost all sunblock doesn't seem to hold up. Also, when I get out of the water, the tees dry off easily with a towel - I don't need to change prior to my quick drive home - I think I appreciate this feature the most. I am 5'8" and weigh 140; size small fits perfectly. Even though I don't use the white swim tee for the pool, I kept it because it is a very attractive, long sleeve tee, and I'm sure I'll be wearing it for my walks in this cooler weather. I've been rinsing all my Lands End suits and giving them a quick wash in Woolite after each use (the public pool is killer on suits), and they have been holding up very well - they look as good as new. Thanks, Lands End for such great quality and style!

The fit is perfect, ideal weight -- I actually wear this as a regular top as it is a perfect weight, travels great!

Pretty good I guess?
But I wish the shirt hadn't gone translucent in the water.

Perfect, but for less than one year. The fabric is now coming apart less than one year later.
Originally the fit, fabric, and quality of material was fine. Unfortunately, the fabric does not last. I have worn the top playing tennis, walking, and swimming for less than one year. The top is now finished! The protective finish is now coming off/disappearing over the entire top in spots of varying sizes! And no, the top has never been in a dryer or in chlorine bleach. From now on, I will wear protective clothing provided by companies that specialize in sunblocking products. For the price, I expected much more from Lands' End.
