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 a very effective product, however, it does not last very long at all
I spend a lot of time in the water year round and have tended to only use these in the summer months beginning in late June. I've had about four of these and none of them have lasted until September. They stretch out quite quickly. In a month or so, the sleeves are about 6" too long. I gave them an excellent rating because they really do a wonderful job of keeping your body blocked from the sun. I just bought three more when they went on sale.

I ordered 2 of these rash guards for a vacation in Mexico. I have fair skin that burns easily and a lot of tattoos on my upper body that I need to protect from the sun, so I decided to give them a go. I spend 7 days in the sun wearing these shirts in the sea/pool and while doing other outdoor/water activities and I did not get burned at all!! Knowing I was protected gave me a lot of peace of mind as I am very health conscious and proactive about sun protection. I am just over 5 feet tall and about 125 lbs carrying most of my weight in my middle and I ordered a regular small, which was still a little loose on me. I probably could have gotten away with an XS but did not mind the extra room as I don't like things to fit very tightly. I am extremely happy with this purchase and would definitely order more in the future! Just beware if you order white (which my second one is) it can get some yellow marks on it from sunscreen, though it mostly came out in the washing machine but not by hand washing.

Nice Swim Shirt
I have swim shirts for my kids and have had an impossible time finding one for me. This came not only in plus sizes but tall plus sizes! Not so tight I feel like a cased sausage. Nice and long so it covers well and I was able to find a coordinating swimsuit.

Super cute and comfy
I love Lands End clothing. They think about everyone. The regulars, the petite and the plus. I am petite and this was a great buy. Cute and comfy. It fits the way it looks in the model. It is not fitted but very comfortable. I am 5'0 height and 135 lbs. I normally worn a medium petite and this fit perfect.

I love this shirt. I wished I would have gotten every color. It is very light and feels very comfortable. I bought the m/p 10-12 and it was a little bigger then I expected however I don't like wearing anything too tight. I guess an 8 would have been a tighter fit but I like the loose fit personally. I also plan to wear it over my swim suit or swim top once I am out of the water.

I bought too late! :(
I just recently discovered this shirt. They arrived this morning and I love them! What do I love? The material has 'give', it's smooth and so lightweight that you hardly feels it's there. I need protection for my arms and upper chest ( too many sunburns as a child) but hate the weight of many cottons. I like the neckline; it doesn't show bra straps yet it's not a mock that feels like I am being strangled!
I bought the white and the plum. Either can be worn in the winter under a suit or sweater; dress it up or dress it down.
This is a quality product. If i need to wear it over a swimsuit, it will not feel bulky. Yes, I just wish I had seen these before they were all sold. I would have liked a darker one to wear in the lake near here.

These shirts are absolutely wonderful!
These are the perfect shirts. They block most of the sun, they keep you cooler, they feel great, and they look great. I now have five of them and wear them every day for my outdoor walk. I have also worn them for every day around the home and out for shopping and dinner as they are pretty and drape so nicely. I've had people stop me and ask where I got them. They are the perfect shirt for travel also. They take up little room, just hang them up to dewrinkle and dry quickly if you wash them. I hope you make dozens more colors and styles.

I had tried a LE Swim Tee in the store last year and thought it was heavy and unflattering. Yet my sensitive skin needs to be covered on long beach days, so I decided to send for one on sale and take a second chance. This one looks great, is lightweight, and dries quickly. And the sun-protection factor prevents overexposure and sunburns. I have since ordered a second one.

Perfect sun protection
Fits well and is very comfortable even when wet. Looks fine over a bathing suit. My grandsons have been wearing the Lands End little boys ones for years, so I thought it was time that I protect myself as well. I also purchased it in white. Runs true to size. The kids one wash and wear beautifully, so I anticipate the adult ones will also.
