How does the fabric work?
The unique patent-pending fabric used in Cooltan tan-through swimwear and shirts is made with a special knitting technology that creates millions of tiny pores in the fabric. These pores allow approximately half of the sun's light to pass through to approximately the same degree as a medium level sunscreen. They are extremely comfortable because they allow your skin to breathe.
Can you see through the fabric?
Cooltan swimsuits and shirts are not see-through when wet, nor when dry. Although it is a lightweight fabric, it is not see-through when worn.
Where are Cooltan shirts and swimsuits made?
All Cooltan fabric is made in the USA! Shirts and swimsuits are sewn in California.
Does the material dry quickly?
Cooltan swimsuits dry quickly both when you wear them and after you wash them, making them extra comfortable, and a great travel suit! Care Instructions: Machine wash. DO NOT DRY IN DRYER. To avoid stretching at shoulder seams, we suggest draping over a drying rack/shower rod/chair, or laying flat to dry. Perfect for travel or gym use!
How fast can you tan through the shirt?
Best way to achieve an all over tan, is to use an SPF lotion of 6 to 10 (or higher as needed) on skin which is not covered by the suit. We also recommend using sunscreen with an SPF 30 for a more even, all over tan.
IMPORTANT: Genuine Cooltan items will have a Cooltan tag in the item, along with a Cooltan information card in the package. Please be wary of other sellers who may be selling counterfeit items- only genuine Cooltan items have the Cooltan tag, and only genuine Cooltan items will allow you to get a tan through the fabric.
Used for one summer and the stitching is coming out.... Warning: they are see through!
