What are women’s rash guards?
In general, a rash guard prevents rashes caused by water sports, such as from surf wax and the few grains of sand that may get caught in them. They’re also nice to wear under a wetsuit that may rub.
Women’s rash guards aren’t that different from men’s. They may be cut in ways that better fit a female shape. Also, some of the best rash guards for women have thumb cutouts to keep the sleeves in place.
Long-sleeve rash guards for women don’t only provide a little warmth, they provide more sun protection. Warmer thermal rash guards are available too. They can stave off wetsuit complexities for a few more weeks.
Long-sleeve rash guards also help avoid bad sleeve tan lines! Rash guards tend to fit tightly, and some even compress your muscles for better endurance.
Do rash guards have built-in bras?
While built-in bras are often a nice feature of some clothing, they’re not common in women’s rash guards. Most lack built-in bras. They might become a more common feature of tank-style rash guards.
Like a t-shirt or fitted exercise shirt is worn over a bra, both rash guards and swim shirts for women should be worn over a swimsuit.
What is the difference between rash guards and wetsuits?
Rash guards prevent rashes and can provide a little warmth. The best rash guards for women and men also provide sun protection. Meanwhile, wetsuits are specially designed for cooler water temperatures.
Their thickness takes into account how much body heat to maintain on both your torso and your limbs. A wetsuit should keep you so warm that you don’t consider stopping until you’ve caught so many waves or ridden so much that you just can’t paddle anymore.

If you’re just starting to surf, it’s important to know that a rash guard is a necessity for the sport. Although you won’t need one every time, you’ll want to have one handy on the beach in case your skin gets irritated while the waves are still going off.
Likewise, they’re great to wear for most other water sports. Women’s rash guards are getting more popular in general, since sunscreen can cause breakouts on your chest. Everyone knows it is a hassle to keep applying.
