Platinum Sun rash guards are lightweight and are made to fit tight/snug. The rashguard tops have TIGHT ERGONOMIC FIT, more of a performance fit.
If you want a looser fitting rash guard, purchase a size up.
RASH GUARDS ARE SUPPOSED TO FIT VERY TIGHT AND SNUG THE BODY.
It is a good idea to order a larger size, if you don’t use the rashguard for any watersports but only want to protect your skin from the sun rays – there is no need for a tight fit.
PLEASE NOTE: The hips are a critical measurement. If your hips are wider than the maximum range on the selected size in the size chart – go a size up.
You might not fit in due to the zipper limiting. Waist and bust can stretch up to 10inches higher than the upper measurement. The size chart shows the most comfortable size depending on the body parameters.
SNUG FIT: The wetsuits are meant to fit tight on the body when it is dry at your first try. The wetsuit will stretch when wet during water activities.
Weight is a more important factor reference in size selection. E.g. If your height is A size and weight is B size, we suggest you select B size.
