The Best Rash Guard Styles for Women

The best rash guard women's styles don't need to be full of bells and whistles. As long as the materials used are of the best quality, construction details are top-notch, and the style is up to modern standards, you can get a stylish and functional piece of swimwear that works best under the sun.

Here are some of the best styles to choose from when choosing to buy a rash guard for women:

  • Women's Short Sleeve Rash Guard
  • Rash guards are almost always long-sleeved, but short sleeve rash guards are just as stylish and functional. This is a great option if you are intending to wear it in warmer weather, or when you're not paddling on a board, rowing in a boat, or doing a lot more movements with your arms.

  • Women's Swim Shirt With Zipper
  • A swim shirt is similar to a rash guard but it's often made of a more comfortable material like cotton. It's also more loose-fitting and comfortable, especially ones with zippers that make them easy to wear and take off.

  • Long Sleeve Rash Guards
  • Long sleeve rash guards are a conventional style of rash guards. They offer full protection against the sun, against jellyfish stings, as well as from painful friction against rowing on a boat or paddling on a board. Loose fit swim shirt women's styles are also available for anyone who doesn't need a fitted rash guard.


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

    A rash guard offers more function than a swim shirt. It offers better sun protection, and warmth, and prevents painful chafing from friction. A swim shirt is not made for function but offers merely sun protection when you're out on a swim. It's also not made for surfing or other water activities as it is purely designed for swimming purposes.

    Are rash guards good for swimming?

    Yes, you can wear a rash guard for swimming especially if you want more coverage in swimwear. Although rash guards are not designed for swimming alone, they are still a great swimwear option for their full coverage and sun protection.

    Do you wear a rash guard over your swimsuit?

    Yes, you can wear a rashguard over a swimsuit. In fact, you need to wear a bikini top under a rash guard for bust support.

    Should the rash guard be tight or loose?

    It depends on your activity. If you are spending a lot of time in the water, such as swimming, surfing, or snorkeling, your rash guard needs to be tight. If you're playing beach volleyball or frisbee, or you're chilling on the beach, a looser rash guard is for you.

    How do I choose a rash guard?

    To choose a rash guard, you need to determine first why you need one. Do you need it for water-based activities such as surfing, kayaking, paddleboarding, and other activities? Or do you need one because you like the coverage it provides and simply want to wear something that doesn't show too much skin on the beach? Determining your activity level will help you choose the best rash guard for you.
