Rash Vest Features

Read on to learn more about how our rashies can work for you, or simply click on the subject you're interested in. 

 

Sun Protection

Our Capriosca  Swimwear wet shirts are ideal to wear if you get easily sun burnt, or just want that added coverage over your shoulders, back and arms. We know the Australia sun can be harsh so we want you to feel protected from those UV rays all day long.

With matching bottoms and rashies designed to match some of our more colourful prints, you can easily style your swimwear with a rashie and use it for when you are going for a swim or walk. The added coverage means you can enjoy more time in the sun and spend less time worrying about getting burnt. A great way to stay safe and sun protected all day long.

Keep Warm

You will keep warm all day long when wearing one of our weshirts. As they are long sleeve and made with a soft lycra, you will be protected from the sun and kept warm as you go for a beach walk or go for a swim.

As you dry off you can easily put your rashie in the sun to dry as you enjoy tanning or relaxing on the sand. As the sun sets your rashie will keep you nice and warm as the sleeves hug your arms and material covers your torso.

They are also great to pack for holidays. Don’t feel limited to just wearing this long sleeve rashie during the day when it is stylish enough to put over a simple plain dress or top and pants as a jacket at night time.

Our plus size rashies have a full length zip makes it easy to put on and off. Perfect to wear as a cardigan or zip it right up when it is really cool.

They are perfect to roll up and pull out whenever you need a little extra warmth. Pop one in your handbag when you go out at night, or tie it around your shoulders.

Playing with the Kids

Swimming with the kids is a great time as they run around and make the most of playing! We know as a Mum that kids can hold on and climb all over you. You want swimwear that is going to stay put so you don’t have any wardrobe malfunctions.

When swimming with your kids, your rashie will hold you in place and ensure that the kids can't pull anything the wrong way. Having this wet shirt will mean you can move around and feel comfortable being active as your body is not only protected but super stylish.

Leaving the beach can be hard, especially with the kids running around. Wear your rashie and feel relaxed as it mimics a long sleeve t-shirt ensuring maximum comfort.

Stand up Paddle Boarding

Stand up Paddle boarding has become an extremely popular outdoor activity. Let’s face it paddling around the canals, river or even in the surf while getting fit is extremely attractive. But with any outdoor activity sun safety is very important.

One of our latest designs in our plus size rashies is our side ruched long sleeve rashie. The side rushing is a clever detail in that allows you to pull it down past your bottom or wear it with shorts and pull it up and tie the bows on the side.

Rashie designs and styles

If you love a sporty style, or simply want more coverage for a relaxed style try our long or short sleeve rash guards. Coming in both lengths, you can easily pick and choose your rash guards to match your outfit or next holiday look.  

Our wet shirt styles are also available in full piece swimsuits for a sporty and active look ideal for spending the day at the beach. Check out our Luxe Sport ¾ sleeve One Piece to see how stylish these one pieces are.

Plus size rashies are really hard to find, and while most companies do not offer a great range Capriosca Swimwear offers a variety of prints and plains to go back with your swimsuits.

Our range of wetshirts include the Hawaii BlueDiamond Geo, Bohemain Sunset as well as plain Black and Navy. With so many colours to choose from it won’t be hard to find a matching rashie to your personal style.

Size guide

All of our swimsuits are true to size. This means you should follow your normal sizing.

The best guide is your underwear - so what you would wear in a bra and undies is the size you order from us in tops and bottoms. For example, in you wear an 18E bra, you should order a size 18 swimsuit top from us.

If you are looking for a one piece and are in between sizes, say an 18E bra and a 20 in underpants, we recommend choosing the larger of the two sizes - so a size 20 in this case.

If you have any issues with your new swimsuit, we do 30 day refunds for full priced items and exchanges for all items - so you can swap to a size or style that is more suitable for you!
