Women's AquaTerra Short Sleeve Zip-front Rash Guard
Love the neck coverage and lightweight feel!!
I purchased the white color to go with my swim suit. I needed some extra coverage because I have an autoimmune disorder that causes sun sensitivity. However, I love to go outside and cotton shirts were no longer making me feel good. I love the zipper on this rash guard. It gives you the freedom to modify your coverage, sexy feel or not! :) I cannot express how happy I am with the lightweight material. In the hot sun at the beach, I did not feel any warmer with my arms and neck covered by the rash guard. I am a picky person when it comes to covering my skin up and I would recommend this sporty, sexy, satisfying rash guard to anyone! I have even worn it outside of the pool/ beach environment!! I did buy a size smaller as previously recommended and was very fortunate for that comment!

Perfect fit and really liked the color.
It fit well and I like the fact that it has a 3/4 sleeve. It is hard to find a 3/4 sleeve sport/beach tops. Hope more colors are offered in the future.

This rash guard is great
The unique thing about this rash guard is the front zipper which makes it easy to take on and off. I just got back from a small island and I wore it every day while snorkelling and for times I needed extra coverage. It is a great Rash Guard and I hope they bring it back next year with more color selection! Also fits true to size I thought.

This works well in and out of the water. I really like the zipper instead of over-the-head - though I would have liked the neck to be more open. I had to exchange the one I orginally ordered because it was too snug for my comfort.. But all in all it's great!

Don't hesitate to order smaller size
Based on a friend's recommendation, I ordered the XS Tall, even though I am normally size 6-8 in other clothing brands and am average height. It fits great! Not tight in the arms at all, and the length is perfect for my taste. Closely fitted around the ribcage, but I like it that way so it will stay on in the water. Looks flattering as well. So if you're disappointed because your size is out of stock, click over to the "tall" section and give a smaller size a try!

Great Rash Guard for Many Reasons
I ordered this rash guard in a plus size for my senior mother. She has arthritis in her shoulders and can't lift them very high so the zipper was perfect for her since she could slide her arms into it, rather than lift them over her head. Applying the amount of sunscreen one should have when in a bathing suit, would have been difficult for her too but the rash guard shirt made her application much less and she didn't have to worry about her back, chest or upper arms. The fun colors made her feel up to date with her pool fashion and she loved the quick drying time too.
She probably wouldn't have gotten in the pool if she didn't have this shirt. Thanks for the great summer memories you gave to her and her grandchildren!

Great rash guard but don't get white!
I really love this rash guard. Landsend does them best. This one is much easier to get on and off with the zipper feature. And it stays down in rough waves whereas my short sleeve pullover guard rides up. My only complaint is that I had to get it in white. Would have preferred it in black or another color not offered in this style - like orange, red or brown. It was the only color left in my size when I ordered it in May - no choice. White stains very quickly - goes yellow from sunscreen that transfers onto it from skin - particularly at the neck, along with sun exposure. First wearing at the beach this year and it stained yellow at the neck and grayish along hem from sand and sea water. It wouldn't wash out. Another wearing and more yellow stains appeared that just don't wash out. I had the same problem with the one I bought in white for my son a few years ago. It looked awful after only a couple of wearings and nothing would remove the stains. It was the last one I bought in white for him. Don't have this issue with the colored rash guards - probably because the color hides the stains. Landsend needs to either find a way to eliminate this problem with the fabric, or don't make rash guards in white. Oh - I also agree with other reviewers - definitely size down one size from your regular size.

Love this rash guard.
Love the zipper and flattering cut. Wish there were more colors to chose from, but the blue is very nice.

Zipper is great add
I wanted this zippered rash guard in petite size small but they were all out, so tried regular small; it's a bit big but I'm keeping as I like the zipper - I could not deal with trying to pull a wet rash guard shirt off that didn't have a zipper! I would order another next spring if there were other colors and more in my size, all that was left was white or a shocking pink so I went with white. Please have more of these next year!

I got this in pink to go with the floral top and pink mini skirt. I like the option of wearing it over my swimsuit when it is not super hot and when i might want to cover up some more. I do like it, however I will say that the fit is a bit weird in the arms (only) I am 5 ft 2 and weigh 125 and ordered a small. The length is good as well as the width but the arms are very baggy (and I don't have skinny arms at the time being), so that is the only negative I see. It was not negative enough for me to return it though. I kept it and have already used it numerous times.
