Women's Stripe Crewneck Swim Tee Cover-up
I can't wait to buy another one! Perfect for on the beach when a chill is in the air or just for additional SPF protection. Also works well with a pair of shorts on the deck after a day on the water.

I now have SIX of these fabby shirts. I live in them --they are perfect for any outdoor activity (gym, tennis, walking, golf, running to the store, soccer field, etc) and look like nicely fitted t-shirts (vs typical rash guards). LE offers a great selection of fun patterns in these tees. I live in Bermuda and sun protection is critical. Fit - I typically like things more fitted so I ordered the XS (I'm 5'6 / 133 lbs). Very flattering but not so fitted as to show "back-fat" and tummy bulges or I would have ordered up. PLEASE keep making these!

Perfect for gardening
I bought this shirt because I needed something with long sleeves and a high UV rating but that wouldn't be too hot. This shirt is perfect for that.
It is stretchy fabric so moves with me when I am moving about in the garden, either bending down or reaching up etc.
It is really cool to wear, so I don't get overheated being in the warm temperatures in full sun.
It is smooth so doesn't get caught on things generally.
Of course it is not impenetrable, so spiky things can still get through, but the fabric hasn't torn or left holes. And while thorns can penetrate, it seems mosquitoes can't.
I liked it so much I bought another 2, just for gardening.
I am very happy with this product.

Sun protection with style
Fit as sized. Nice loose fit and high quality fabric. Almost too nice to wear snorkeling but jumped in. Fantastic sun protection.

Love the quality and material of this top.
This top is well made, the fabric is very comfortable and it is easy to wear.

Perfect sun protection
I have purchased this shirt in both the navy and black versions. I prefer petite sizes, but bought the navy in a Sears store, and they did not stock the petite. I liked it so much I bought it anyway and wore it all summer. Then I discovered this shirt also comes in black and white--and in petite, so I purchased that one in a petite size. I spend long hours on the beach, and tend to burn, so this provided excellent protection. No sunburn. The regular is too long in both body and sleeves, but I roll the sleeves and live with the length. The petite fits perfectly. I am 5'2". I would have given this 5+ stars, except for the fact that the white stripes have now yellowed. It has not been in chlorinated water, so sunscreens on my body must be the culprit. If anyone knows how to brighten these stripes, I'd love to know how. Or Lands End, here is a project for you, because my bathing suits that have white in them have also yellowed in the white areas. Very disappointing.

I bought this to wear deep sea fishing, but found myself wearing it as a casual shirt as well. I am a 22W-24W and the 2x fit perfect. Not too loose, not too tight! It hit just below the waist-right at belt buckle. It looks great with my Nike Tempos and yoga pants. FYI, I'm 5'9. Love this top!

Comfortable fabric and classic style.
The silky feel of the tee's material makes it comfortable whether it's a humid or dry day at the beach.

Absolutely LOVE It!!
I purchased a size L in the black and white stripe. I am about 5'3" tall and about 160 lbs and this top fits perfectly and still has a bit of a loose casual feel to it. The sleeves are just a tad bit long on me but not so much that it's an issue. I love that it's not skin tight like some of the swim tops in this style are, so therefore does not accentuate the "muffin top". I wanted protection from the sun as well as coverage when swimming at home or especially in public with my daughter and by pairing it with the Beach Living black tummy control swim shorts it works great! I was kind of worried about how the horizontal stripes were going to make me look but somehow it gives a slimming appearance! I could not find a black bikini top to go under it that I was happy with, so I actually ordered a black Wacoal sports bra to wear underneath it. It works perfectly and you'd never know I was wearing just a regular bra underneath it! By doing that it solved my problem and gives me some extra support too. The top gets washed at least 3x/week and it's holding up beautifully! I wash it in cold and hang to dry. This is the first summer I've not felt self conscious in a bathing suit in a very long time! Would definitely recommend and purchase again!

I highly recommend this shirt! I spend a lot of time in the sun - at the beach, in the pool, and gardening, so this shirt is a lifesaver and I plan on ordering another one! If I could change one thing about the shirt, I would make the sleeves just slightly longer, but I am 5'11, so I realize this change probably wouldn't work for everyone. On me the shirt fits more like a 3/4 sleeve and I have to try hard not to get odd tan lines, but I still love the product. Everything except the sleeve length fits well and is very comfortable. It feels so lightweight - I wear it on hot days in the sun and the shirt seems to breathe well.
