thermal swim shirt
I'm swimming laps & cold all the time. (Female) I bought this shirt with hopes that it would keep me warmer. It's a little short in the arms but lots of room for motion in the arms. It's not as warm as I had hoped for, but I'm glad I bought it, it works well in the water. The chest is tight, but I'm not sure a larger size would work. In the water it doesn't feel too small, just when dry.. I bought a medium & I'm a size 6 female/ 5" 4"

The XS shirt fits like a 5/6. It's a little long and baggy on my son who wears a 4T. It seems to keep him much warmer, but a warning it is HEAVY WHEN WET.
Fit: Feels true to size
Shirt is big
I am 5"2" and weigh 108 lbs. The adult small is too big and they do not make an adult xs. I have ordered a youth medium because the youth large had the same height size as the adult small. The shirt works for lap swimming if you can get it tight enough

FINIS Thermal Training Shirt
My 6 year old son (45 lbs and skinny)h wears a Youth size M. Fits him well, sleeve length, neckhole and all. He used to feel cold in the pool even on a hot day (temperature in the 80"s), now he is happy.
Be careful of size
This shirt feels like it will keep my son warm and he said it did. The size, however, feels very small. My son just turned 7, but he isn't big at all. His height is 35th percentile and he is 4 ft tall. His weight is 44 lbs and he is 3 rd percentile. I used the size chart, which gave the XS a height up to 4 ft 6, so I got it based on his height. The shirt fits widthwise, but, as for height, the length just skims the top of his hip bones, so, not very long, and the sleeves are an inch above his wrists. If a child of 4 ft 6 wore this it would be ridiculously short.
Was very hesitant to buy this shirt at first because I didn't know if it would really be worth the money, but it goes down as one of the best purchases I've ever made in my life. Decided to take this shirt with me on a "day" hike from the top to the bottom of the Narrows at Zion National Park. Being early July, it was warm out and the Virgin River at the start is quite shallow, so I didn't start the hike with it on, but this shirt was on before my first dip into the water. My hike wound up taking me 20 hours to complete, almost 10 hours of which were made in the dark and required crossing rapids and a little bit of swimming in the parts where I couldn't touch. One of the best things I did was bring this shirt because it kept me warm, before and after I got it wet. It dries really quickly! I don't even want to imagine what this hike would have been like without it. Definitely a life saver in that situation. Shirt also helps me get into the pool a little quicker for lap swimming. Heaviness of shirt while swimming is good for training, and doesn't create so much of a drag that form is lost. Also good to wear on rafting trips.
It works as I use it to coach and teach swimming lessons in the water. Keeps me warm, but the sizes run very, very small. The XL I ordered feels like a Med.

Fits nicely, keeps in some heat, does not interfere with my stroke. Creates some drag for a good training effect. I think it is a good value. I recommend it!
Warm but a little big
Overall, I am very happy with the shirt. It still takes about 300 yards to warm up but I do stay warm in an outdoor pool. The fit on the wrists is a little big allowing water to enter and creates drag. The left armpit sleeve rubs a bit which is uncomfortable. My goal was to stay warm in the water and it does the trick. I wish it came in an XS because the small seems a bit to big.
Good for only one season!
I bought two of these for my wife and I to use in outdoor water aerobics classes last winter. They do run a size small, so I had to send them back for the next larger size. However, the spandex has completely deteriorated when we tried them on this season for the first cool morning. The shirts are now too loose to use as swim shirt and will have to be replaced.
