Cover Up in Style with a Women's Rashie

Within as little as 15 minutes, the sun’s rays can permanently damage your skin. Rays of sun reflecting off the water are even more harmful, so you need to take precautions and cover up. If you are at the beach, in your pool at home or out at a fun park with the kids, a rash vest is the perfect way to protect your skin. 

Keeping a rashie on hand is the best way to stay protected from the elements throughout the day. You might want to feel the sun on your shoulders for part of the day, but when that suns starts to bite, a long sleeve rash vest covers you up in style. 

Discover why we love rash shirts, how we like to style them, and how you can choose the perfect one for you.

Why We Love Rashies!

Because we're sun smart, that's why! Capriosca Swimwear HQ is located on the sunny Gold Coast, so we know a thing or two about sun protection. Of course we love to get a little sunkissed in the summer, but we know to limit our sun exposure and take cover when we've had enough. 

While our beach bags are filled with the highest rating sunscreen, there's a limit to how much we want to reapply. Having a long sleeve rash vest on hand is a practical way to protect our skin without having to slather it with excessive amounts of sunscreen. 

Here's how we stay protected all year round. 

Sunsmart Checklist

  • Wear protective clothing
  • Use a sunscreen of at least SPF 30+
  • Wear a hat that shades the face, head, neck and ears
  • Try to stay in the shade

These are all great protective measures to look after our skin, and wearing a rash shirt is one of the smartest things you can do to protect yourself from the sun. Be sure to cover up with a rashie if you're participating in outdoor activities like paddle boarding, kayaking, and spending time at water parks.

How to Style Your Rash Vest

Just because they're practical doesn't mean that women's rash shirts have to be boring. We want every woman to look and feel her best when hitting the beach or pool. It's our mission to design practical, comfortable, and stylish swimwear for all shapes and sizes.

Your rash vest can form part of your swim look or be added at any time of the day. Match your rashie to your swimsuit in the same colour or print for an overall look that is chic and sophisticated, or have fun with mixing patterns and plains. 

Think of your zip up rash shirt as a swim jacket. Wear it zipped up for the ultimate protection or keep it open to show off the swimsuit underneath. You can even tie it in the front and push up the sleeves for a sexy little cropped style.

Choose the Perfect Rash Shirt

Capriosca Swimwear offers a range of rash shirts in both prints and plain colours in sizes 10 – 26. Choosing the perfect style for you is easy. Do you want short sleeve or long sleeve? Do you need chlorine resistant fabric or will plain swim fabric work for you? Would you prefer a block colour or do you love a print?

Our collection includes both short and long sleeve styles in classic plain colours and seasonal prints. If you're spending time in public pools and spas, be sure to invest in a chlorine resistant rash vest that can withstand the damaging effects of pool chemicals and heat. 

If you want to inject some colour and print into your swim wardrobe, a rash vest from one of our print collections will give your swimwear a lift. Many of our prints feature a black base, so you can easily mix and match with classic black swim separates.
