Features of a Top Quality Rash Guard

To help you look for the best rash guard, here are the features you need to look for when choosing the best lifeguard rash guard for you:

  • Flatlock Seams
  • Flatlock seams are the golden standard for great quality rash guards. Flatlock seams prevent chafing as the material is connected with an overlock stitch that doesn't add bulk to seams. It's also durable and longer-lasting, giving you more value for your money.

  • Sun Protection
  • Women's short sleeve rash guards may offer less protection compared to a long-sleeve rash guard but the most important factor in sun protection is the UPF. A UPF of at least 50 is the standard when it comes to sun protection among rash guards.

  • High-Quality Materials
  • Women’s lifeguard rash guards must be made of high-quality materials that provide excellent fit and comfort. A mix of polyester and spandex or a mix of nylon and elastane are great materials for rash guards as these are flexible enough to allow a greater range of movement and wick away moisture from the body.

    A variety of styles are also available for rash guards if you opt for different styles. For example, loose-fit rash guards in women's styles are also available but they are not made for performance-wear, but rather for lounging or non-duty purposes.


    What is the best material for rash guards?

    The best material for rash guards is similar to materials used in swimsuits, and that's a combination of polyester and spandex. About 80% of polyester and 20% spandex in a rash guard material are ideal for high-quality rash guards that perform well, fit right, and last for many years.

    How do I choose a rash guard?

    To choose a rash guard, you need to figure out why you need one. Do you need it for surfing? For swimming, or as a lifeguard on duty? By determining your activity, you can choose the best type of rash guard for you.

    Are rash guards supposed to be tight or loose?

    Rash guards are supposed to be tight if you're spending most of your time in the water, and loose if you're not spending a lot of time in the water.

    What is the difference between a rash guard and a swim shirt?

    A rash guard is made for more functions such as using it for surfing, kayaking, rowing, and more. Swim shirts are typically only used for swimming purposes, such as added protection in the summer, or for anyone who wants a modest piece of swimwear. Swim shirts are also usually made of thinner material and made in a looser fit.

    Do you tuck in a rash guard?

    No, you don't tuck in a rash guard because it's meant to be worn over a swimsuit bottom. You also don't need to tuck it when wearing shorts or bikini bottoms because the bottom hem is tight enough to stick to your body.
