To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The product itself seems to be decent quality. I guess you don't really know until it's been worn in the sun and water for several times. We just got it, so I don't know for sure on the quality. I bought this for my little girl, age 9. She is very tall and thin, but looks more like a tween because she has the vollyball player build. I got this is size 14/16 and it was way too tight all around. I just ordered her a womans small, which i think should fit (she wears my woman's small shirts) but I would have ordered myself a medium in this. To me, this product runs 1 size too small, unless you want to wear it like a scuba suit.
Still using it a year later. Bought it to keep my daughter warm during indoor swimming lessons during the winter. Its not made for that. Actually having the wet sleeves on her arms made her colder. Now using it at the beach for which it was designed worked great! I did order a larger size as I worried about it being too tight and limited use. I'm glad I did. It was a little on the small side but ordering up proved beneficial as a year later my daughter can still wear it. Washes well too.
If my review was helpful to you, please choose YES. Thank you!
My little girl currently is wearing a 2t in clothes- and has a little wiggle room in them. The 2t in this swim shirt would have been to snug on her, and it would have been a battle putting it over her head when taking on or off. The arm length will be too long, but that was expected as I read other reviews of this shirt. The quality of the shirt seems great, and when looking around for another option to compare, I did not see anything around this price point. I also bought a adult woman's shirt to match my little girls.
Looks fantastic. Kid loves it. However I was hoping that this would bring a little bit of warmth during swim class, but it's almost as if shes wearing a regular tshirt because shes just as cold as always...actually seems a little colder than usual.
The shirt did the job it was supposed to, it prevented the usual sunburn on our Caribbean adventure. My daughter was in the sun from the morning to beyond sunset. I did apply sunscreen prior to her putting it on & only had to keep applying it to her face, neck & legs. The shirts in the other colours are much better than the red & pink due to the fact the dye did not come out, fortunately I had read reviews about the dye problems & would hand wash the shirts at night, the amount of dye that comes out & still does after four washes is a bit ridiculous hence the star deduction. The other coloured shirts I would give five stars & they fit as expected.
This was my daughter's second Kanu rash guard. The first one (pink) held up for two summers while the second one (purple) will need replacing after just 3 months of use. The sleeves are worn and the logo is falling off. However, given the price and fit as well as the added convenience of not having to apply sunscreen to my child, I will give this brand another shot in the future.
