Protect yourself from the sun with swim shirts for women

Swim shirts for women, also known as rash guards, have become popular in recent years as water lovers have become more aware of the dangers of too much exposure to the sun, as well as the dangers of chemical sunscreens to our oceans. These shirts are great to wear over a bathing suit, under a wetsuit, or by themselves and are great for all types of water sports, from swimming in the pool to snorkeling in the ocean. Take a look at these popular swim shirts for women and get ready for fun in the sun in style.

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, rashguards or other types of swimwear that help protect you from the sun "are a sun safety basic for anyone who's in or on the water." But they're not just good for your skin.

If you're swimming in the ocean and choose a swim shirt instead of sunscreen, they can also help protect our fragile coral reefs. In 2008, the scientific journal Environmental Health Perspectives reported that common ingredients in sunscreen are damaging ocean coral. Each year, 4000 - 6000 metric tons of sunscreen wash off swimmers into the oceans.

Wearing a rash guard or swim shirt can decrease the need for sunscreen, thereby helping to save our oceans.When you do use sunscreen, it's helpful to use eco-friendly sunscreens.

      These are great! It's hard to find swimwear that isn't too revealing nowadays, but even pools can't complain about these as they are truly swimwear. Thank you!

      I like that turquoise swim shirt that has the white on the sides. The contrast in color might make me look slimmer! :)
