Women’s Rash Guards
Women’s Rash Guards in both standard lycra and poly fleece or thermal lycra.
Rash guard is a type of athletic shirt made of spandex and nylon or polyester. Rash guards are typically used to protect against rash and sun. Standard lycra rash guards not only provide protection versus the sun, jellyfish stings and rash but actually keep the body cooler in warmer temperatures. Adversely, Poly Fleece or Thermal rash guards provide a layer of warmth in cooler temperatures. Rash guard uses are endless including all water sports, under athletic gear and MMA, mixed martial arts.
Other important components of a rash guard include flatlock stitching, and six panel construction. Flatlock stitching creates a seam where the seam allowances lies flat to the garment instead of hanging loose from it. It is made by adjusting the overlock or the thread overedge stitch. Flatlock stitching increases the strength of the garment for intense exercise or recreational activities. Six panel construction versus the conventional 4 panel tee shirt construction allows the user increased mobility wet or dry.
The combination of products used to construct a rash guard differ slightly depending on the designer. The use of nylon and spandex create a garment that is lightweight, quick drying, flexible, durable, naturally antibacterial and water wicking.
