What Is a Rash Guard?

A rash guard, also known as a swim rash guard, rash vest, or rashie, is a type of athletic shirt made of spandex and nylon or polyester. It is designed to protect the wearer's skin from rashes, abrasions, and sunburn during water activities such as swimming, surfing, snorkeling, and diving.

Why Choose a Rash Guard?

Rash guards serve multiple purposes beyond just being a fashionable addition to your swimwear ensemble. They provide essential protection for your skin from overexposure to the sun during water activities, helping to prevent chafing, abrasions, and sunburn.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are rash guards good for?

Fun rash guards can be a very cute addition to your swimwear rotation, but more than that, they provide a purpose too.

Women's rash guards can be used in a variety of ways. The first is underneath a wetsuit to help prevent chafing and a potential rash when out in the water and dealing with sand and board wax. The second is more coverage for skin protection. 

Some people feel more comfortable with sunscreen and a swim rash guard to help ensure that they do not get too much sun exposure, especially if they are planning on being out for hours at a time and may not be able to reapply sunscreen every couple of hours.

Why is a rash guard called a rash guard?

The name rash guard comes from the idea of the shirt being used to protect against rashes. This rash could be abrasion from surfing, falling into the sand, or even a bad sunburn.

Rash guards are designed to offer good sun protection for your skin, as well as protection from getting scratched or injured during activities like boogie boarding and surfing, among other things.

What are the best rash guards?

The best rash guards are ones that you find comfortable.

They are ones that offer SPF protection for your skin, fit comfortably without restricting your movement or feeling uncomfortably tight or loose, protect your skin from potential abrasions, and as a bonus, look cute!

The best rash guards are dependent on what you need, but can easily be found in our selection.

What do you wear under a rash guard?

Our bralette is the perfect item to wear under our rash guard shirts for added support and quick drying. The bralette offers both comfort and functionality, ensuring you feel confident and secure during all your water activities.

Plus, our one-piece rash guards come with a built-in shelf bra and sewn-in bra pads, eliminating the need to wear anything underneath. This feature provides extra support and coverage, allowing you to move freely without any distractions.

There is no set rule for what kind of top to wear underneath a rash guard, so it depends on your comfort level and what you prefer to wear.
