When it’s time for fun in the sun, you need a rash guard. They’re awesome for swimming, hiking and hanging out by the pool, and they’ll protect you from a sunburn, too. You can also wear them with just about anything, so there’s no need to overhaul your wardrobe.
For swimming or splashing around at the beach, wear your rash guard over a matching bikini or bathing suit. That way, your bust will be supported and you’ll be ready to dive in at a moment’s notice. For extra coverage, wear a swim skirt or board shorts instead of bikini bottoms.
If you’re walking to the pool, put on a swimsuit and your favorite jean shorts. Finally, throw on your rash guard, grab a beach towel and head out the door. You’ll be safe from the sun and covered enough for a quick trip to the store if you like.
Guys can toss on a pair of swim trunks with their rash guard. If you like surfing or another water sport where you don’t want anything getting in your way, try swim briefs instead. Complete your ensemble with flip-flops and some shades.
On a hike, wear moisture-wicking shorts with your Lands’ End rash guard to stay cool and comfy. The soft, stretchy material won’t chafe or irritate your skin, even during a steep climb. Don’t forget to protect your face with a wide-brimmed hat and sunblock.
After taking off your rash guard, don’t throw it in the washing machine with your other clothes. Instead, hand wash it with a mild detergent. After rinsing, let it air dry and it’ll be ready to wear again soon.
