What is a rashguard?
Sand, sun, surf, swim—a day at the beach can be pretty rough on your skin. A rash guard is a form-fitting athletic shirt that’s built to protect your skin from chafing, sunburns, and board rash. A long sleeve rash guard shirt or a short sleeve rash guard shirt are a perfect extra layer to add to over tankini tops
, one piece swim
, or two piece swimsuits.
- Rashguards are made of more heavy-duty fabric than sun shirts and swim shirts
. They're more dense than swimsuit fabric, but not quite wetsuit fabric, giving you a just-right layer of compression and warmth when you're in chilly water.
- A rash guard for women tends to be form-fitting and sometimes even compressive, since they’re specifically designed to be streamlined while protecting from sun, sand, and chafing.
- Other features to look for in a rash guard? They should have sun protection (preferably UPF 50), be quick-drying, and have a zip-up (full-zip or half-zip) option and sleeve (short sleeve or long sleeve) option that works for you.
What’s a rash guard for?
Rash guards are the perfect layer over a swimsuit for any kind of water sport, but they’re especially useful for sports like surf sports, paddle boarding, or other high-intensity water sports. While they’re useful as a swim cover up
while you’re in the water or out for a swim, many women find a sunshirt, swim shirt, or other piece of sun protective clothing
to be a more comfortable choice for beach lounging or poolside play.
Do all rash guards have UV protection too?
Every rashguard Title Nine sells is UPF-rated. (A UPF rating helps you know how much UV protection a piece of clothing provides.) This means you can skip the sunscreen and feel confident that your skin will be sunburn free. (But don’t forget to SPF-up the rest of you!)
