Rash Guards

How are Lands' End Swim Shirts UV protective?

There’s nothing like a tropical vacation to get you through a long, dark winter. Before planting yourself in a beach chair though, think about how you’ll stay safe in the sun. A swim t-shirt from Lands’ End can make avoiding a painful burn much easier, so consider putting one in your suitcase before heading to the airport.

Our swim tees (or rash guards as most are known) have a UPF 50 rating and block 98% of damaging rays. Free from worry about age spots and other skin woes, you can kick back and relax in style. We make swim shirts in all sizes too, so you can order a couple kids swim shirts and a men’s rash guard for your spouse.

There are a few important things to remember about our swim shirt line. The innovative fabric we use may not work as well if washed many times or stretched out of shape. It’s also likely that your shirt won’t be as effective when wet.

Dark colors also provide better protection than light ones. If you plan on spending hours in the sun, choose something in black or navy. You can even wear SPF under your swim shirt, too.

Increase your swim shirt’s lifespan by rinsing it in cold water immediately after wearing to remove salt, sunscreen and sand. When it needs cleaning, do a quick hand wash with mild detergent. Afterwards, let it air dry.
