Just returned from my first visit to St John and I wore this rash guard almost everyday. No sunburn under the top while spending hours each day at different beaches. Worked well, dried fast, very comfortable. I did not feel hot wearing it as I originally worried.

I got this for a trip to Belize. Loved it. It's stylish with the white accents and ruching on the sides. It doesn't ride up. But most important, I didn't burn in the sun!

Disagree with other reviews; I thought this was sized extremely small. It's really really cute, love the half zip style, and the material is superb for a rashguard. It was just WAY too small for me. Sad to send it back.

I'm fair skin and no matter how much and often I apply sunscreen, I still get skin damage. Switched to rash guards shirts which are comfortable and easier then the sunscreen on the back. Love that you can adjust how high or low the sides sit. You can unzip the front pretty low for a sexier look if you feel to covered up in the shirt. I've tried a bunch of different brands and this is the best I've found so far.

I live in Florida and wore it the other day for a full day of boating. It is comfortable and attractive, I actually got lots of compliments. I am a very hot natured person lately (56) and I never got hot. Sometimes these things are so tight they are hard to get off, but it slipped on and off easily. It's great and I'm online to buy another.

I loved this but have wide shoulders and had to return because the small fits my waist but the medium fits my shoulders. I ultimately ordered a men's rash guard.

True to size but slim fitting as needed with a swimsuit.

Fabulous stylish yet functional rash guard. I typically wear a size 8 women's top and 12 pants. The size 8 in this style fits me to a tee. I'm a tall curvy gal and love the feminine feature of being able to bunch and tie it on the sides, and the zipper to keep yourself well covered out in the water or open the neck a bit and zip down whilst cruising the beach. All this while keeping the upper body protected from the sun's harmful rays.

I ordered this product in XS bc all other sizes were out of stock. Based on other reviews I was planning on ordering a small. I am 5'4" 125lbs and wear a 32DD. I thought an XS would be too tight around my chest but took a chance and I am so glad I did. It fits perfectly and is not tight anywhere.

LOVE this rash guard. It is very flattering, and fits perfectly. Even the sleeves, which I normally have a huge problem with, are not too long on me. Anxious to get to the beach in CA to try it out. I am 5', 100 lbs, and I bought the XS size. Fits well all over.

I searched a lot of websites for a cute rashguard that has a half zip and this was by far the best one I've seen. I have swimsuits from Carve Designs and it's made out of the same quality material. I love the rouching on the side, all the way out is long enough to cover my behind and very cute bunched up. The zipper is smooth and with long tabs to make pulling in the water very easy. I'm 5'3", 130 and the small fits perfectly, I would say it is TTS.

This is the cutest! I bought it to keep my skin out of the sun when we go to Key West, and it's great. Comfy and cute! I love Carve Designs clothing and this didn't disappoint!

I ordered this specifically to wear over a blousen tankini top. Other styles were too tight to fit over the loose fit tankini but the rushing on this one made it work for my needs. My normal size in tops is 4 petite, and the size small rash guard was a good fit over the tankini. I love how the zipper makes it easy to put on and pull off, and I got many compliments on the Mint color. In hot tropical sun I was cool, comfortable, and sunburn free. Perfect.

I ordered the Small and the Medium (my usual size for tops is 4). I did not want skin tight and I specifically wanted sun protection to fit over a blousen tankini top. The adjustable ruching is what made this fit well over the loose fit tankini top and the size Small worked perfectly for my wants/needs. The shirt is surprisingly cool in the hot sun. I love having a zipper for easy on/off and ventilation. I got lots of compliments on the Mint color and the design of the shirt.

Wore this snorkeling in Panama. No sunburn where the rest of the group was fried. Fits well, not tight. Zipper is a great addition.

Love this! Im 5'7" and 135 lbs and was torn between a size small or medium. I ordered the medium and I am so happy I didn't go with the small. I'm a 34D and the chest area in medium is perfect. The stomach area is a tad loose but I prefer that. I got the aqua which is very pretty and bold, not quite as light as the pictures show. I give it 5 stars, my only negative would be the zipper which feels a little cheap in quality so we'll see how that holds up.

I recently purchased this for a trip to Hawaii. I have fair skin and tend to burn and I wanted to cover up while on the beach and use this as a rash guard for snorkeling and body surfing. It was great! The fit is true to size and the zipper was a nice feature for cooler mornings and hot afternoons. I also loved the side chinch detail. My only complaint was that it took a bit longer than my last rash guard to dry, otherwise it was perfect!

I am eight months pregnant and have a chest size over 38DD. I got mine in a large and it fit snugly. It was not overly tight or overly loose. It fit me perfectly for my current size. I plan on wearing this for those SCUBA diving trips or just for plain snorkeling. I got mine in the navy blue color and I love it. I was thinking of getting the strawberry colored one but dark colors tend to make you look skinnier so I got the darker one. I really love how light and airy it feels. The sleeves are also very comfortable; not overly tight. I would definitely suggest this top to anyone.

I'm a redhead who burns easily, but loves to swim. This was the best thing I packed on my 10-day trip. I wore it every day & didn't have to worry about sunburns. Extremely light, comfy, quick-drying & flattering. Feel great wet or dry. Love the zip for easy on/off & adjustable neckline.

I love the color, fit, and quality of this rash guard. I used it everyday while snorkeling on my trip. I am usually a between Small and Medium but this runs big so the Xsmall was what I ended up with. I love the rouching and tie on the sides. very cute and can be adjustable to make it hang high or low depending on what you prefer.

I really love this rash guard!! I specifically wanted something white because I wanted it to protect me from the sun but not be too hot. The majority of rash guards that I found were black so I was glad I found this one in white. Even though its white, it still has great UPF protection. The 2 main selling points were: (1) The zipper at the collar. I hate crew neck tops that make me feel like I'm suffocating. This one is great because you can adjust it however you like. (2) The side ruching. You can pull it as tight or as loose as you want. NOTE: I did not buy this to wear as a traditional rash guard for surfing etc (to protect me from sand burns/cuts) I bought this to fit loosely and simply provide protection from sun and wind. I got size small and it is pretty loose. I even tried the XS and and it was tight in the arms and bust but still loose in the waist. If you're looking for something very form fitting, this isn't the one you want.

Purchased 3 of this style, 2 in white, one in indigo. True to size, I took a medium, needed the extra room for my arms, very muscular or I may have taken a small otherwise. I'm 5'7", 134lb. Great for kayaking and stand up paddle. Love the zipper. Fabric is so soft and they wash well. Highly recommend.
