Women's Crewneck Swim Tee Rash Guard
Perfect fit, fabric and color!
The Women's Crewneck Swim Tee Rash Guard is just what I was looking for. I'm 5'-7" 135-140 lbs, and the size small fit perfectly. The fabric used is nylon and spandex, which makes for a lighter feel. Some retailers use polyester in their sun shirts, so they're not as comfortable/feel weightier. The sleeves are longer than other retailers similar products, but they're not too long. I like that they hit at the bottom of my wrists with a little excess fabric so they don't pull up, and pull the shirt up when I raise my arms. The body is also long enough to cover my hips bones and then some. #Petites will definitely want to order from the petite sizing due to the length.# Bonus: LOVE, love, love the color Violet Plum!

This shirt is sized correctly and is good quality fabric. I have used it successfully as a cool, sun protective shirt while riding in our convertible in sunny FL. I haven't tried it in the water yet but don't see why it wouldn't be as effective.

Runs Large, but I will alter it and keep it.
Wow, I am fair and I want to stay in the sun longer so this is a must. However, when I wore it, when wet, it is way, way too big. Sleves 4 inches too long. I will cut and hem them. I bought the purple one and the poke a dot black one. I also have hats with the new spv sun protection. Good product.

Love this shirt in violet plum but the white did not keep its color
I would give it 5 stars in violet plum and 3 in white due to the color change. Great shirt. Great fit - I'm about 5'7" and 115. Extra small was perfect. Love the long sleeves for extra sun protection now that I see the sun damage from years of being in the sun. No need to worry about getting help with sunscreen on my back either! Strangely enough, the violet plum has kept its color but the white is now more of a yellowed white/cream, which i noticed after the second time in the pool.

Pretty color, but size a little off for me.
The shirt I purchased in this color (plum) did not fit correctly - too snug and arms too long. In contrast the black tapestry shirt I purchased simultaneously fit very well. Don't know if it's an issue with the solids or just this shirt. I'm returning this one, keeping tapestry. (This is the second time recently - after years of buying Lands' End long-sleeved tees with no problems - that I've had to return because of too-long arms.

beach must have
I wear this to the beach regularly to minimize the amount of sunscreen I need to wear. I like that I don't have to worry about straps moving and getting strange sunburns. Great movement to chase my toddler around and it shows my son that even Mommy wears a rash guard at the beach. It's also quick drying at the beach. I'm 5'0'' 125lb and a petite small was not too loose or tight when dry. I wore it in the pool yesterday and it started to feel looser when swimming laps.

very soft and stretchy fabric but a bit too long in petite

With one wearing today, July 4, at a pool party by the time I got home my "white" swim tee had turned to a yucky yellow-creme color on the outer side only. The inside was still white, so I don't blame the pool chemicals at all. I don't recommend buying this shirt in white at all. The fabric is photosensitive, of all things.

We spent the weekend at the beach and I wore this shirt everyday. I applied a thick layer of SPF 100 waterproof sunscreen before I put on my swimsuit and I wore this shirt over my swimsuit. I did not get a sunburn. The shirt does not weigh you down or restrict your movement in the water. I plan on wearing it when I swim laps outside. When not in the water, the shirt is very light and breathable and it feels very cool on your skin. I wore the shirt into beachfront restaurants at lunch and no one knew it was a swim tee. I ordered another one in a different color and I can't wait for it to arrive.

flattering and comfy
I am really enjoying my new rash guard. I have worn it to the beach, but also to garden and as a shirt to watch my kids at the splash park. Works well, not too hot or heavy and fairly flattering. Ordered another.
